Okay, there's much more going on in this book, but I have to admit the first love scene is a doozy.
Coped this from B&N
From the Publisher
She's a diplomat:
Danna MacFadyen of the League of Planets is assigned to investigate the explosion of a space freighter. She must use her psychometric skills to determine whether this was an accident or terrorism -- but for Danna, the hardest part of this assignment is working with Korcian Enforcer Cullon Gavriel.
He's a warrior:
Fighting isn't just in a Korcian's blood -- it's in his very soul. Cullon Gavriel already knows the freighter explosion was terrorism -- targeted at the Korcian prince traveling incognito aboard the ship. Cullon's single goal: to discover who is killing Korcian True Bloods. He never expects to become enchanted with a beautiful Terran female who has the ability to step into the past.
As the pieces of an explosive puzzle fall into place...
Danna and Cullon realize they have uncovered a conspiracy that stretches across the galaxy. The trail leads to the capitol city of the Korcian Empire, where shocking secrets lie hidden-- and where the lines between politics and love cross unexpectedly.
This book is an entertaining futuristic/sci fi read. The h/h are attracted to one another from the first page and they're relationship builds from there. He tries to be controlling and being a diplomat handles him really well without every doing something TSTL. The sex scenes are integrated beautifully and I didn't skip one, which I have a tendency to do if the story is really working. I had one issue with the book which comes at the end of the book, mini spoiler... the killing of True Bloods is a conspiracy, no big deal, but the assassin is homosexual, and this bugs me, a gay man in a militaristic society who resents his treatment by his own father.
I'm heading to the UBS today to look for Ms. Waddell's backlist.
