As the two cultures collide, Tessa and Khan will find much to admire and respect in each other's customs. The greatest
challenge after all is of the heart. When you throw an alpha male and an alpha female together there are bound to be
fireworks, and that's what makes this story so much fun to read. Sparks fly as the two go from being combatants to becoming
soul mates. The Challenge is all that and more! Tessa and Kahn are the most three dimensional characters I've seen
in a while and both couldn't be more opposite if they tried--background, species, temperaments, beliefs. It's exactly
why they're perfect for each other and watching them come to the same conclusion was an adventure not to be missed.
I really truly wanted to hate Susan Kearney's "The Challenge." To my consternation, it was written rather well and the
story was genuinely interesting. At the end of the story I found that I did not hate the story so much as I loathed the hero
of the book for being such a "me big strong man, you weak woman" kind of guy. In the end, I not only loved the hero, I
was rooting for the little bugger. You have to read it to understand.

A sequel featuring a secondary character from this story. I am anxiously awaiting Dora's story!

I love this book! I read it like 5 times. The two character's chemistry was hot!!! She wanted to save earth, and he wants to save his on planet and people, and she is the key. So he helps her to be a stronger person and he ends up mating with her. But their differences are what made them struggle and come together through out the book...

I found this book to be just ok. The lead, both female and male, were overly simple. The male lead went from no compromising for most of the book to a complete compromise in the last chapters. It felt off. The biggest reason I can not give the book a good review is I did not immediatly get online to paperback swap to order any more of her work.
