Overview

Their war of independence from Earth is won, but the men of the former colony Gaia still have a big problem: too few women. Since they have to attach to a woman to even become sexually active, this means a long boring and lonely life for a lot of guys--unless they can find other women to marry. General Garran Doranth sees the wisdom in finding women for his men, even if he has to get them from hated Earth. On Earth, women aren't finding men that want to commit to marriage so they sign up to go to the Outer Colonies to find husbands. But on the way their ship is hijacked by the Gaians who make them an offer they can't refuse--themselves! Doctor Sarah Johnson isn't thrilled with the situation, but she can't help being intrigued by the masked man who courts her--even when it turns out to be the one man she can't stand, the general. Rating: Contains graphic sexual content.

A sci-fi story of a planet needing women because of the nature of their men's mating ritual after a war of secession from Earth, and the woman doctor who volunteers with a friend to ship off a corrupt Earth. Exactly what has happened to Earth must be explained in one of the earlier stories of this series, because there are large gaps of explanation in this story. Although, I do agree with a previous reviewer's opinion on the repetition of narrative on the doctor's story - got you to wondering on the maturity level and/or the intelligence of her opinions without all the facts; also skimmed quite a few whiny pages. The premise of the story is basically good, just that the author gets stuck in a thought process. Angst, lots of drama, romance, some adult language, and sex scenes. If the Gaians landed on this planet, they need to bring several large ships to hold all the volunteer women. Time to find the exercise mat and get in shape - yoga any one??? This story can also be found in the free boxed triology set Rogues in Time. Happy reading.

Sarah is unhappy with her life on earth. Men who want to marry and have children are in short supply. Sarah decides to move to the Outer Colonies where men want wives. On the way she is kidnapped and given a different choice. Marry the most hated man on earth, the "Gaian Beast". I loved the story of Garran and Sarah. He is kind and he spends the book proving he would make a good husband. This book is the perfect balance of Sci-Fi and Romance. Read it! You won't regret it.

Just an ok read. The lead female character inner turmoil seemed to drag on and on. I ended up skimming some paragraphs. There were a few that were pretty much just a repeat of what was already written a few pages back. I liked the book idea and I have read a lot worse but I think this series will go in my "I got nothing else to read pile".
