Book Description

Book 1 in the Trek Mi Q’an series.

Modern day Earth woman Kyra Summers is kidnapped and wed by a seven-foot tall, thickly muscled warrior claiming to be her Sacred Mate. Life on his home planet Tryston takes some getting used to, as the laws of the world cater to erotic hedonism and leave females at the sexual subjugation of the barbarians who claim them.

No one said love with an alien would come easily. Enjoy Kyra’s spicy escapades as she adjusts to life and love in another dimension.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Humerous, Steamy Read - Very Imaginative! September 28, 2004
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
Kyra Summers and her best friend Geris Jackson are vacationing at The Smiling Faces And Peaceful Hearts Meditation Retreat to relieve stress from their lives as independent, Alpha-career women. Kyra is a busy tax accountant whose career is extremely important to her. Unfortunately the retreat turns out to be soooo not their thing - BORING! Eating rabbit food everyday, no pizza, and doing breathing exercises with a motley group of dorks, (not to sound snobby, but these people are real nerds, trust me!), the two friends can't wait to leave. So they are astonished into speechlessness when on the day of departure, Kyra is kidnapped by a 7-foot tall warrior, built like Arnold Schwartzeneggar when he was still pumping iron. Zor Q'an Tal, the warrior, is also the High King of Tryston, Emperor of Trek Mi Q'an galaxy, Guardian of the Sacred Sands, and the "most feared man in six hundred galaxies and seven dimensions." Well, Kyra wanted some excitement after all that stress relief!

The Chief Priestess of Tryston had informed her king that he would find his Sacred Mate, the only woman who could be his Empress, on the primitive, first dimension world of Earth. And her name is, (you guessed it!), Kyra Summers! So Zor jumps into his trusty gastrolight cruiser with his best friend Dak and makes a quick trip to Earth, where he absconds with His Sacred Mate. He manages to frighten her into shock, when, without touching her, he rips off all her clothes. From now on she will remain nude when with her new husband, and when in the presence of others, she will wear the traditional dress for Trystonian woman, two pieces of sheer fabric that resemble a skimpy bra and sarong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, Innovative, Interesting Story March 31, 2004
By Emma
A lot of romantica walks the narrow line between too much sex and not enough story, not enough sex and too much story, or really lame story and poorly written sex.
Jaid Black, thankfully, is a writer who can do both a great, interesting and fresh storyline with really well written sex and relationship between the characters.
You've got your Alpha Male and your female lead in a science fiction storyline. How refreshing is that? Even better? The sci fi is well written, funny and isn't eclipsed by the sex.
Zor, the High King seeks out his mate, who just so happens to be a human from earth, Kyra Sommers. He comes to get her, finds she's not a typical wilting willow and it goes from there.
Nice backstory, thank god the female lead isn't some whining, 18 year old virgin.
To those who complain about the sex being graphic - when you read "erotic romance" you're going to get a book with lots of sex in it. If you don't like lots of sex in your books, especially graphic sex, it's pretty much general common sense to avoid the words "Erotic" in the title or description. As to what does or doesn't ring your bell sex wise, that's all relative. I found the sex to be pretty hot and very well written, different things work for different people, this happened to work for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first time and it was PHENOMINAL June 28, 2001
This was my first Jaid Black book and my first Romantica ebook.
What a hot, funny, sizzling, adventurous read! I recommend this book to anyone who loves sexy paranormal adventure.
The characters are fully developed, three-dimensional people. Zor is the High King and Emperor of his world. A world where women are scarce and have to be... "imported". Kyra turns out to be his sacred mate and when Zor comes to claim her, the adventure begins!
The world Ms. Black creates is as full and richly developed as her characters. Reading how Kyra adapts to the customs of her new world, and how Zor adapts to having a sacred mate was a ride I did not want to end. It was sweet, romantic and hot hot hot hot! Whew!
Sexually, this book is not for the timid. It is honest and direct with out all the purple prose that can get so silly you laugh out loud during "the" crucial scene. Sometimes it is down right inspirational! You and your significant other will reap the benefits.
The second book in the series was just as sexy. I cannot wait for the third installment! Thank the Goddess Zor has brothers!
In the mean time Tia Isabella and Treva Harte are filling in *very* nicely ;) in the romantica time travel department.
I have read all of Ms. Black's efforts to date and haven't been dissapointed. Keep up the excellent work

5.0 out of 5 stars More erotica than romance February 14, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not a traditional romance, where only the main couple make out with each other. This is more erotica, with some unusual sexual twists, futuristic connotations, a very different sexual culture, etc. So don't expect this to be politically correct or realistic. It's fantasy with sex and romance and adventure. If you're concerned that people will think this reflects what women want, or how men should act in real life, then this is not the book for you. This book is for those who are more sexually adventurous in their readings, know when how to keep reality and pure flights of fantasy separate, and don't expect earth-bound customs/behaviour/cultural norms/sexual practises from a futuristic, fantastic, space adventure. Enjoying the unreal escapism of this book, I loved it. If you're all for the fantastical, not-worried-about-this-being-dangerous-to-your-sense-of-morality-in-real-life, then I highly recommend it to you. If you're expecting a traditional romance like some of the other reviewers, and are easily shocked/offended by non-politically correct behaviour, maybe you should skip this, it's not for you. Very mature readers only.
