Please don't get me wrong, I love a good bodice ripper and an appealing alpha male but I had a rough time with this book.
The heroine views a playful slap on the rear as actual abuse and then days later sees her female friend tied to a man to keep her "in line" and thinks it's cute how they always argue.
Minds don't change this quickly.
Also, much like in actual life, the woman in this story does all the compromising and the man...gets a haircut. That's pretty much the sum total of his emotional growth...personal hygiene. Meanwhile, the woman who has lived in a society without gender norms, without men in positions of power, without curse words, meat eating, marriage, physical assault and a whole host of other things for hundreds of years accepts the notion of being a wife, of giving up her entire life and promising career and friends, moves to a foreign land where she's not allowed to walk around without her male escort. And there's not even a sentence devoted to that monumental change in her character's behavior. Maybe that's my main issue, these changes would have been a lot easier to swallow if I understood why the heroine made these choices. She didn't even hesitate, we didn't get any internal dialogue or anything. Just *poof* penises are great now that I have one to play with, nevermind all that established life stuff I had going on.
This would have been awesome if they'd actually managed to compromise but I feel like the author was laughing behind her hand at us silly feminists and our notions of equality. It made what should have been a lighthearted read a real effort to sludge through and it makes me want to sit her down and explain internalized mysogyny to her.
Give the book a shot, but lower your expectations going in.
Once there, she is introduced to a small group of physically strong and intimidating, macho, aggressive men who lead the culture of primarily men of the North. Although vastly different in every way imaginable, Christina and the man who is directed to be her protector, Boulder, enjoy learning from each other about the other’s culture and quickly become friends. To be her protector, Boulder must also be in a close relationship role and both of them agree to this plan for individual reasons of their own.
The story shows the growth of their relationship and how each of them learns and grows in important ways from the other. Initially I found some of their differences so distinct that I didn’t totally enjoy the book, but not only grew to like them both enough that I was completely involved and cheering them on by the end, but also intend to read the rest of Ms. Peer’s interesting series. She is an author whose unique plots are entrancing, intriguing and good for those who are the thinkers and questioners of the world.
I received a free ARC of this eBook in exchange for my honest review of it.

The book shows the start of romance and love being found and the start of change in the societies. Some hot sexy scenes, humour and love. Great to read. Well written. Looking forward to 3rd book.
