What I liked:
Can I just say that 97 pages is way too short a time to have spent with this amazing story?!? I could have done with another 200 or so. The hero, Kendrick, absolutely made my mouth water. There is something about a really well-written alpha hero that does that to me. Not a violent or angry man (well, and not really a man at all... he was an alien, after all), but definitely not afraid to go after, protect, and possess what he wants. And let's be honest, ladies, isn't there a place inside all of us that longs to be treated like that? I mean, he started a war for her. Like Helen of Troy, except the powerful king is also hot, well-built, and funny. His character was so endearing in his development, especially emotionally. Definitely a must-read. Whether you like science fiction or not. The unfamiliar worlds and settings might throw you off a little, but it is well worth it to get to watch this love story unfold. Very engaging love scenes, very well-written and holy HOT, hot. I also read that it was book one in a series, which means that there really will be a sequel. Can't wait!

Book Blurb
Caught between a rock and a hard man… Special Service agent Tamara Conway isn’t looking for love. She has a life, an important position. The last thing she needs is some hot and sweaty sex with a gorgeous, arrogant Bandarian messing up her life, even if he can kiss the legs out from under her. She certainly doesn’t expect to discover the infuriating man is the ruler of Bandar and the only one who can help thwart Federation Earth’s greatest enemy.

Kendrick has wanted Tamara ever since their first unforgettable encounter. With Earth needing his assistance, this is his chance to pick up where they left off. Kendrick agrees to help on one condition. Tamara will be his for one year. Shocked at the indecent proposal but facing the possible death of millions of people, Tamara agrees. If Kendrick thinks he’s getting a submissive woman, he’s in for a surprise. Tamara is no shrinking violet. A battle of wills ensues. An overwhelming desire binds them together. One year isn’t enough—Kendrick wants her for eternity.

Publisher Note:  This book was previously published elsewhere. It has been revised and expanded for Ellora’s Cave.
