5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous, Witty and Delightful!, 5 May 2006
This review is from: Forced Mate (Mass Market Paperback)
Tarrant-Arragon, a great Djinn, the next god-Emperor of Tigron, seeks a mate, specifically his half Djinn second cousin. He is intelligent, crafty and a tyrant, and encourages talk of his ruthlessness-because it is so much easier than actually fighting.

Djinn-Vera is half Djinn, half human. She is also a Saurian Knight, dedicated to bringing an end to Tarrant-Arragon's tyranny. Although betrothed to Djetthro-Jason, her cousin, since the age of five, Djinni is attracted to the large, handsome man-the Saurian Knight she believes sent to her by her father.

Because Djinni-Vera is one of the last female Djinn of marriageable age, and Tarrant has spent years looking for someone like her so he could wed, he abducts her from earth with plans to immediately consummate their union. Djinni does not cooperate. Never has Tarrant had a woman defy or deny him. He is enchanted by his little mate's stubborn refusal to accept him. Realizing her hatred for Tarrant-Arragon, and her fear of the marriage bed, Tarrant sets out to win Djinni's love before telling her who he is.

The author has written a funny, at times hilarious and laugh-out-loud story of romance, science fiction and dysfunctional families. The family chart at the beginning of the book is a great help in keeping the characters straight in your mind as you read. I enjoyed each page, yet this isn't a book to be read in a day. The plot is rich and involved and the author handled all loose ends in a satisfying manner. Her 'alien' words were odd, yet cleverly designed so as to be immediately understood. Add hilarious. The book held up all the way through and her ending was rewarding. I highly recommend Forced Mate. I look forward to Rowena Cherry's next book. It's an automatic buy for me.
