I will admit that I usually don't "get" sci-fi, fantasy, or the like. Somehow, it's totally possible for me to easily believe that a hooker can marry a billionaire (ala Pretty Woman) but mention an alien and I'm totally thrown out of the story and crash back to reality.

But, I also love books that are FREE. Since this is a short (and by short, I mean, half hour to read, tops) story, I figured that I wouldn't be wasting too much time or effort to give it a go.

I loved it. It was short, but sweet and steamy. Somehow, the author made me care deeply about the h and H with a minimal amount of fuss or muss. I think it attests to the strength of author's writing ability that ten minutes into her story, I not only felt a mix of emotions (sad for what the h had gone through, happy for what I suspected would be the beginning of the h's HEA, and excited to take a journey through this new world), but I was invested in the outcome of the characters and fascinated by the vision of a different world that the author was giving me a glimpse into.

I usually reserve 5 stars for books I know I will read again. I won't read this again, simply because it was so short and I have a lot of other titles on my booklist. But this was a perfect lunchroom read, and I will definitely check out more by this author.

Even if you aren't a fan of fantasy or sci-fi, give this short story a try. The romance is fantastic.

This is a very sweet short romance, brief but with a strong feeling of love and a believable, hopeful HEA. I love alien romance and thought the alien world/sci-fi setting here had some nice and interesting details, considering the story length, and it made me want to know more about the backstory of how humans came to be on this strange, alien planet. I loved this idea of two different races having to come together to forge a mating bond in order to adapt and to survive. The interaction between h/H felt very romantic to me, and I didn't want their story to end. The heroine is sweet and gentle, the hero honorable and strong. I loved him, and I wanted to see more of this couple together. I agree with others that this would make a fantastic full-length novel. Would love to read something like that in the future with this same couple. If you appreciate short stories and love some sweet, tender alien romance, be sure to get this freebie. It was a very pleasant surprise. Short but sweet and definitely romantic.

Now here is a fine example of a short story that is written well, with appropriately sophisticated language (not juvenile prose) for published writing, and topped with a nice story line and good romance between the characters. Thoroughly enjoyed this piece. The lament was that this was a short. I would have loved to read more on the world and the characters created in a full length version. I think I would read more from this author.

Being a Star Trek TNG fan, I couldn't pass this one up when I saw the blurb on it. This was an enjoyable passion-filled, but sweet Sci-Fi Romance. Even though it was short (wish it were longer), I still found it strong on plot and characters. I liked the world-building surrounding Rohan's alien race.
I will definitely be giving more books by this author a try.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked this book up today in the kindle store for free. This is a fantasy/sci-fi romance written by Rebecca York. This is a VERY short book, but it was really good. The Guardians crashed on the planet Jalaran a century ago. There was no hope of rescue. The people lived in fear of the Jalarans. But, the Guardians had something they wanted. Technology. When it becomes clear that the Guardian males are sterile they make a deal with the Jalarans. If they will mate with their females and produce offspring, they will share their technology. Elena is one of the women chosen. Rohan marries her. He is not the barbarian she thought he would be. She pleases her physically, but over time she begins to fall in love with him. Soon she finds she is pregnant. Before she can tell Rohan, he discovers that the Guardians had betrayed the Jalarans. What will happen to Elena and her child? I don't normally read a lot of sci-fi/ fantasy books, but I love Rebecca York's novels. When a book is free and it's written by reputable author, it's worth a try. It only took me about 15 minutes to read, if that. These short stories are great for a work break or lunch break. This will take you completely away from your stress for a little while. Overall a B+

This is a great story that is so sweet and tender. As the cover says, it reminded me of Worf of the Klingons from Star Trek generations, but not as barbaric as they were as a race. It is written so well & in such a short space I just couldn't believe it was that good!
I wanted this story to be expanded into a full novel. I wanted to see more of the world they lived on. That is the only reason I gave it half a star off. I want more and feel deprived of what could be an a great series of novels. Ms. York, please do us all a favor and write longer novels of this kind. I need stories like this, so many don't reach me as this one did in less than 100 pages. Thank you for a great short that hit all my buttons. :D
