by Johanna Lindsey
My rating on a 100-point scale: 90
This isn't the best romance I have ever read, but it is pretty decent, in my opinion.
There is much to love about this book: the science fiction elements, the future mixing with the past, the political reasons driving the story, and the unique mixing of cultures and beliefs, among many other things. The sensual scenes are relatively satisfying to read, as well, though a little cliche at times.
However, there are a few things that one could very well dislike. Such as: A strong modern heroine being conquered by an animalistic feudal leader, who just happens to be exactly what she needed. The over-bearing male dominance in this novel is nearly sickening, however well it plays into the romance side of things. I have to admit that I was a bit like, "Really, that far?" when the male main character was first introduced. I feel like a few elements were just a bit overdone, that's all.
Overall, this book is a good read. I highly recommend if you're a romance genre fan who may like a little science-fiction, futuristic element.
I recommend to:
Fans of the romance genre.
I would not recommend this novel for anyone under the age of 15 due
to multiple scenes of a sexual
