Lady Sophillia Glorianna DeLorion spent years as a slave aboard a Haarb ship. The experience left her feeling unfit for a normal relationship. When she returned and had a hard time adjusting her brother sent her to live with the desert people hoping the isolation would help to bring back the sister he remembered.
Eric DeStroia is the Commander of the Queen's Royal Guard and is being sent to bring Sophi home. He has also been chosen to become her husband by her brother Doral, who is a part of the Tetriarch which rules their planet. Eric has seen how the arranged marriages can kill the soul and was not looking to be paired, but the thought of taking care of some broken dove appeals to him. But what he gets is a Falcon who has found her voice and power.
The story is told from various points of view to better move things along. The only real problem I had is that Eric's eyes are established as one color then abruptly said to be another then back again. But as a whole I would recommend this to everyone.
I am really happy I was lucky enough to get a copy of Hers to Choose because I have found a fabulous new author to enjoy. Patricia has done a marvelous job creating well developed characters and a detailed plot for her readers to follow.
I enjoyed the book so much that I actually read it a second time right after finishing it.
I really liked seeing a strong female lead as well as a determined but soft hearted hero to adore.
The journey of lessons learned despite the hardships in their lives so that love can take root and bloom between the spunky personalities of both lead characters was delightful and entertaining.
Bravo for Patricia Knight I can't wait to read more in the future!
Even though the Verdantians are descendants of earthlings, it seemed odd (to me) that their names and titles all sound Italian. Their speech swings from British styling (I kept expecting someone to say "Pip, pip, cheerio!") to American (especially the profanity). But I can't imagine why they would sometimes use medieval expressions ("sweetling," "To me, Captain!") in the year 4372.
Sophi has been traumatized by four years spent as a sex slave to a brutal alien race, the Haarb. It's perfectly understandable that she would be afraid of men, but not that she wouldn't know much about sex. (SPOILER) As they become intimate for the first time, Eric tells Sophi that she may ask him to do anything to her, and do anything to him. She responds that she wouldn't begin to know what to ask for. I found that hard to believe. And Eric deals with Sophi's trepidation surrounding sex by lying down with his hands behind his head, grinning and saying, "Touch me!" He smacks her on the butt and is, IMO, arrogant and overly casual for such a circumstance. I think it would have been more realistic if he'd been gentle, reassuring and seductive, taking things slowly and assuring her he'd stop if she wanted him to. He does take care not to overwhelm her and he is a very good man; I just think his initial approach was off.
Finally, I am sick to death of stories with unearned special powers, fated mates, and saving the people or the planet (or other problems) with sex. That said, the last quarter of the book is really fun and engaging and, by the end, I was very fond of Sophi and Eric.
