     When Serena awakes, after a close and unpleasant encounter with some sort of stun gun, she very quickly learns that resistance is futile and escape only a yearned for dream. She, and the other Earth women Serena meets aboard ship with her, have been captured by the Moyds, interstellar merchants ….their mission, to procure fertile wives for the men of Volarn, where their race is endangered due to the wide-spread sterility of their own women. Learning this is at least some relief to the captured women, but Serena is disgusted to realize that they are nothing in these men’s eyes but baby makers. Regardless, she knows she has no choice but to face the fate that awaits her with as much dignity as she can muster.

     Once they arrive on Volarn, Serena learns that her assessment has not been entirely accurate. Using their power crystals in the Tarthra Ritual, the warriors approach the women with their crystals to find the mate most suited to them….a woman to love who can love them. Serena is chosen to become King Rhamus’ queen, but, just as she feels herself weakening to Rhamus’ romantic, passionate nature, Rhamus’ enemy, Xarath, abducts her.

My Review:

     From the start this book grabbed my attention and wouldn't let up. I mean "pink pig men"? If I was kidnapped by aliens and the looked like that I'll probably laugh at them. But then they did have some wicked gadgets.

     I really liked this world where that are many different but alike things to earth. Specially liked the strange looking flower that was kind on dandelionish looking but smelled like roses and stick all over the flesh. I'll say that was one of my favorite scenes. Now what I mean? *wink wink*

     Also like the Volarnian women's cycle! I mean no mess to talk about? Yeah how can I change genetics? *lol* As for their method in choosing their mates...OMG can I get one of those? I'm in desperate need in a mate for my heart.

     What I loved about this book is that there was no boring play by play of the situations or places. Don't get me wrong. Descriptions are extremely important when writing a book but not to the extreme as to put every single detail of what is on the picture. (This is in my opinion, you might like it different but I don't judge)

     I also like the story as a whole. Is different and unique. Not your typical romance. And let's face it...who's not a sucker for happy endings, and that ending was definitivelyppy one. Go red-heads! I'm definitively reading the next one!
