Breaking up was never so hard...

Going undercover at a mass wedding as a bartered bride, Morrigan Blake has every intention of getting off the barbaric planet just as soon as it’s over. Or, more correctly, just as soon as she captures footage of the mysterious princes rumored to be in attendance.

After a euphoric night, Morrigan discovers her spaceship left without her, and Ualan of Draig is claiming she’s his wife. It’s not exactly the story this reporter had in mind. And to make matters worse, the all-to-seductive alpha refuses to take no for an answer.

Being cursed by the Gods was never so frustrating...

Prince Ualan is prepared to follow dragonshifter tradition and marry the woman revealed to him during the Breeding Festival. When the stubborn, yet achingly sexy, Morrigan refuses to accept their shared fate and his supreme authority over her, it is all he can do to keep from acting like the barbarian she accuses him of being.

I’m surprised I read the whole thing.

Normally when I run into a heroine who is TSTL, I stop reading, but for some reason, I read every page of this book. I think it’s because I enjoyed the world the author had begun to build. There wasn’t a lot of description of the physical world, and just a bit about the appearance of the shifters, but it’s just the first book in the series. There is time to build this world when the intention is to write several in a series.

I had such a hard time when Rigan was supposed to be a star reporter, there to report on the planet, the princes, and their weddings, yet she didn’t bother to study the materials that were actually given to her by Galaxy Brides. What? Why not? If you’re showing up to be a pretend bride, wouldn’t it be important to know the details of what you’re getting into before the spaceship leaves WITHOUT YOU? LOL She was truly TSTL.

I wanted to like Ualan. I really did. But the choking. I get that she’s supposed to perceive that he’s a barbarian, but he isn’t. Until he is. Why the choking? I thought that was unnecessary to show that he was her “master.”

One star is a rare event for me. I don’t like doing it. I’m glad this book was free.
