When Annie goes into her kitchen to microwave some leftovers, much to her surprise, she finds a naked man...a gorgeous, perfect naked man standing there. Desperately, she would like to believe he has amnesia, but the people shooting strange ray-guns and trying to kill the both of them prove otherwise.
As a failed leader of a revolution, James is the sole survivor of planetary genocide. He has traveled three hundred years into the past to change his own future. However, James was followed; alone except for Annie he is no more than an escaped convict as well as still a slave.
Annie is a surprise to James; she is angered about his plight, albeit nervous because he himself told her he has killed someone. And yet, she still helps him. But when operatives of the Bureau continually threaten her life, and only his surrender can possibly guarantee her safety, Annie refuses to let him.
If there is one book you should read this year, it is NEVER LOVE A STRANGER. I actually read this in an electronic format and I'm SO glad its come out as a paperback...this story is worth the small press price as a paperback. You won't be disappointed!
This is an action adventure with a good dose of science fiction that starts out in the present, and takes you to the future, except, which one? NEVER LOVE A STRANGER has some amazing twists that I hadn't nor could have predicted and literally blew my mind.
As for Annie and James. WOW. Ms Fisher has done a phenomenal job writing Annie's reactions to what gets thrown at her. My heart accelerated, and I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat trying to read faster every time the Bureau started shooting at them. Then, when Annie travels to the future with James simply because she couldn't let him die (he had been nothing but chivalrous towards her) I couldn't help but cheer her on.
NEVER LOVE A STRANGER is an amazing story full of sexual tension, a wide range of emotions and so many surprises -- I recommend it wholeheartedly!
