I enjoyed this book very much. The author quickly pulled me into her world and kept me there pretty much non-stop til I finished the book. My compliments on that feat!!
Joanna is a negotiator working to help bring about peace among warring factions in a star-system far from Earth. All of a sudden, she finds herself kidnapped via beam from her ship and married to a commanding (hunkalicious), irritating (drool-worthy), non-negotiating (gorgeous) neanderthal!
Alex knows he has to marry outside his world as part of the peace accords and since he hasn't been able to get the curvy (stubborn), beautiful (disobedient), and sexy (head-strong) Earth woman out of his mind, isn't it handy that she's been declared compatible by the Match Key? Well...rather than go through the whole courting rigamarole, he'll just order them married and get on with it. No problem, right???
When these two titans clash, it's truly marvelous. While at times I was irritated with both of them, I still heartily enjoyed their meandering path to happiness. Several secondary characters deserve a book of their own and I think the author means/meant? to develop this world more as I was left with lingering curiosity regarding some events in the book. But still a satisfying read and I'll look for more by this author.
