Product Description

Product Description

Two cultures—one dusty planet. Intergalactic relations have never been so hot.

Starship Captain Samantha Grier has only two options—crash land her warship on an unknown planet inhabited by God knows what, or drift through space. She never counted on becoming part of a colony of barbarians, or becoming the center of attention for their illustrious leader…a man more than capable of claiming both her heart and her body. Too bad not everyone is thrilled by the new sleeping arrangements.

Griffin can’t believe his good fortune. Not only did the humans arrive just as their power grid was failing, but their Captain is a vision of beauty. With blue eyes and fair skin, he knows instantly that she’s his intended mate. But claiming her is the easy part. When brutal attacks bring the two cultures to the brink of war, will he be able to keep the colony together, while maintaining his role as her mate? Or will the tension leave them worlds apart?

4.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstandings & betrayal drive the plot 8 Jun 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sam is a kick-a** captain. A selfless but rough-tough go-getter.

Griffin is the leader of his genetically altered people, who had been left to thrive or die on their own.

What happens when an Earthling captain and a DNA altered individual meet? Well... cultural misunderstandings, life-death challenges, technological fiascos, and.... love!

At the beginning, I really liked how Sam & Griffin came together. I especially enjoyed how Samantha proved herself to Griffin's people. How do you convince a bunch of warriors that you are not a doormat? You challenge them to match of skill & strength. And, of course, may the best 'wo'man win!

Initially, I was upset by an upbrupt change to Sam & Griffin's relationship that occurs mid-way through the story. But after taking some time to think about it I realized that the way the author presented it, was truly something that would occur when two seemingly natural enemies come together. Everyone has their honeymoon period before, inevitably, real-life intrudes, misunderstandings occur, trust is tested, etc...

Griffin, like most men (sorry guys!) IS a guy. He will suffer from self-doubt. He will trust those who have always been closest to him, and he will NOT ask the questions of the one who could actually answer them. He will create a mountain from a mole-hill, skew his own understanding & create his own problems. Frankly, after how he treated Samantha I'm surprised that the author didn't allow her to smack Griffin upside his head. The issues that he created by his mistrust I don't feel would have been able to be overcome or mended, but, of course, they were.

Samantha was a great heroine. Strong, skilled, caring, & no nonsense ; ) I did find a little fault with how easily she gave in to Griffin after their 'misunderstanding', but then again, she didn't have much choice. I won't say why because it would offer a spoiler.

Overall, I thought it was an intriguing read and very enjoyable. But, can I smack Griffin around a bit? Please?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very engaging 5 Feb 2013

Great character development. Engaging story line with creative plot elements, including a shipwreck on a dystopic desert planet, tenuous integration of newcomers, resentment-driven sabotage & frame up of interloping earthling by psycho, power-hungry, spurned natives. Contempt toward newcomers increases when local alpha guy is immediately attracted 2 the kick-ass earthling captain & then claims the outsider as his mate--plenty of sparks fly in & out of the bedroom! Throw in herds of slavering sand beasts barely kept at bay by an archaic energy shield, with said shield running out of power, stir and u get a well-rounded story. HEA :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice read 25 Aug 2010
By Underwater Attack Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Samatha's spaceship crashes on a planet and the ship's crew finds out that there is a colony of people there, genetically created by another race that had used them as slaves and later abandoned them. Samatha and Griffon, leaders for each of their groups follow their mutual attraction and form a mating bond, while also trying to keep their people from tearing their fragile peace between the groups to shreds.

Sam's a girl after my own heart, who can open a can of whoop-a if she has to, usually only at the insistence of some a-hat bully. The other characters were ok too. Didn't find the ending to my liking because it didn't jive with the rest story, but the rest was alright.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK READ 12 Sep 2013

NEVER WANT TO DOWNGRADE ANY AUTHORS WRITINGS BECAUSE SOMEONE IS BOUND TO LIKE IT. LOVE READING BOOKS THAT DIP INTO YOUR IMAGINATION BUT THIS ONE JUST DIDN'T DO IT FOR ME. PAGES AND PAGES OF WORDS AND YET IT WAS STILL CONFUSING ON WHY THE TWO MAIN CHARACTERS STAYED APART FOR SOOOOOOOOO LONG (at some point is shows 3 MONTHS LATER). THERE WAS A MURDER WHICH STARTED THE SEPARATION BUT YOU DON'T KNOW THIS UNTIL TOWARDS THE END BECAUSE THE ONLY MENTION IT GETS IS WHEN SHE (MAIN CHARACTER) WAKES UP THINKING ABOUT IT AND THAT'S THE ONLY TIME YOU GET ANY HINT THAT IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. GETTING TO THE END OF THE BOOK THE TWO CHARACTERS KINDA START TO TALK TO EACH OTHER AND THAT'S WHEN YOU FIND OUT WHAT REALLY HAPPENS. BUT, I DID NOT LIKE THE END.
