When Commander Jace Weston of the Universal Guard tracks a fugitive into the harem of a royal palace, he never expects to find an ally--and a lover--in the nubile princess of the rival kingdom. Forbidden to marry or even dally while on duty, Jace doesn’t dream about things he can never have. But when he meets the courageous princess condemned to a loveless marriage who dreams of nothing but finding love, he learns some things are worth wishing for.
Political climates change like the direction of the wind, and Princess Tamara understands someday she will have to marry the unpleasant prince of her neighboring kingdom. But when she is rescued from a grotesque alien fugitive by a drop-dead sexy soldier, Tamara seizes the opportunity to choose her first lover. The three-day journey back to her kingdom filled with scorching sex turns into more than just astounding physical delight, and Tamara fears she cannot live without the touch of the strong soldier who has stolen her heart.
“He was a soldier, destined to a life of battle and hardship. Tamara was royalty, ordained to marry a prince, destined to be queen.”
Oh how I wish this story was longer! There was a lot of potential in expanding on both the world-building and character aspects had there been more story written. This would've created a greater connection with the reader and the characters. However, I appreciated the creativity of the world that was revealed and most especially adored the fugara, Weegul (you'll have to read the story to find out more). The shortness of the story provides an almost instant happily-ever-after kind of satisfaction without having to think to hard through all of the minute details that can sometimes cloud a sci-fi. The erotic moments were sizzling without being overdone as well.
“She was pure and innocent, and he would taint her.”
Reader's looking for a quick escape to a new planet with a heroically hot Commander and a resourceful Princess should definitely check this story out.
