Ryn abid Alna has an excellent reason for sneaking into Ziri's home. After years spent scraping together enough vud for the bride price, he's finally ready to steal a wife. One look at Ziri's sweet smile and Ryn decides no other woman will do. She can fix anything she touches, so why not the loneliness he's lived with since he was enslaved as a young boy?
Though Ziri longs for love, she's not so sure she's ready to settle down with the man who kidnapped her, especially after he jumps her into a nest of Sweepers, a sinister alien race bent on mayhem and destruction. As the day draws near when she faces Ryn's family on the Choosing field, Ziri ponders the hardest decision of her life: Fight for Ryn and the place he's made for her in his heart or choose another man as a life mate and risk never knowing love.

Lucy Varna ventures into the world of Sci fi Romance, and I love it.. I'm a huge fan of her other series' and was excited to hear she was writing sci fi romance... Ryn lives on a world with a low population of females, so he sets out with raiders from his planet to steal a wife! Enter Ziri, yay not at all a week snivelling female who instantly falls for her captor.. We follow their journey to Ryn's world with many adventures along the way.. From wonderful alien market places to an aggressive race of aliens known as Sweepers.. No spoilers.. I loved that the author didn't write an Insta love novel.. And with Ms Varnas amazing ability to captures a readers attention with her vivid details and her amazing storylines drag them into her world.. the good,the bad, the ugly and the Stinky! Although the book didn't end with a cliff hanger it did leave me wanting more.. More into the Pruxnae ( why do they have so few females?) The Sweepers (why are they so Aggressive?) and I really want to read more about Ryn's feisty Sister Tyelu.. I love Ms Varnas books and The Choosing will be another added to my rereads and favourites list. I would recommend this book to all fans of Lucy Varna and fans of the Science fiction Romance genre..
