Kristoff Verrai is the Captain of the Imperial Guard of the Goddess-Empress of the galaxy. For ten cycles he served his old mistress faithfully. Now that she is dead, his only job is to find and protect her new Incarnation until she can ascend the throne.
He doesn't expect to fall in love with her.
But a relationship between them can never be--the Empress must have a Consort with Royal blood and Kristoff is just a commoner.
Can they fight the love growing between them? Or will it overwhelm them?
If only Charlotte wasn't Descended from the most powerful female in the universe, they might have a chance...
Well, as a goddess incarnate Charlotte sure does get a lot thrown at her. Yet her trust in Kristoff is almost instant but it was easy to see why. He may not feel he is worthy but his steadfast ways and protective nature helped make this story shine. Yes, it's a sexy romp but Ms Anderson has a knack of coming up with the craziest scenarios. Entertaining trials, laugh out loud moments, and villains to boo and hiss at too!
I loved the Majoran hero Kristoff and he's possibly my favourite so far, although I have a soft spot for Sarden (book 1, Abducted). Charlotte deserves some fun in her life but the author sure does throw a lot at her but hey, you know it will all work out in the end.
Fast, sexy, and never a dull moment.
