**Spoiler Alert - if you have not read The Wikomsette - DO NOT read any further!**
A Wife for the Future picks up 20 years into the future from where The Wikomsette left off. Brannon came back at the end of the story having received the information in the future that Regina was pregnant when she left her tribe behind and that it was Brannon's child. He's granted a 20 year pass to return to the past and raise his daughter. A daughter, a commodity so scarce in his society that a woman at the age of 20 is to come out into society and take on at least three husbands up front and then within the next few years, add up to 5 more husbands to her tribe.
In this society men do the child rearing from birth. Women are to be cherished in their society and protected with the utmost care and provided the highest level of security imaginable. They are provided elaborate mansions and expansive grounds complete with guard houses to protect their ever expanding tribe. Sounds like a dream, right? It's not easy on Ashling, having been raised two thousand years before this future exists, even with the coaching of her father on the customs and ways of his time.
The heat ... this is where the heat is from Book 1, it's all within these juicy pages. Lady Ambria is hilarious, you'll adore this woman with her sex toys, positions and literature on way's to please your men. The bit about the "cocks" had me rolling! The selection of Ashling's first three husbands is intense and the heat between each of them as she "accepts" them into her tribe is off the charts hot. The difference obviously is in Book 1, Regina did not choose her men, they were given and thrust upon her, Ashling is free to choose from the suitors that have been pre-screened as viable males, found to be in optimal, physical and emotional health and more importantly, fertile, to provide for growing the tribe.
This story had comedy, passion and suspense. I adored following up with various members of Ashling's mother's tribe as she comes into contact with each in her new world. Ax as always is a pleasure to behold and the story that unfolds for Ashling is wholly enjoyable to read. I definitely recommend you read both in order, you will not be disappointed!
Twenty years has passed and Regina and Brannon daughter Ashling has to return to the future with her father to do her duty as a Wikomsette. No one knows except a few people that she is from the past one of them being Jules her assistant who she is attracted too right away but he is too young to be considered her husband. Ashling settles in pretty quickly and chooses three husbands Gregor, Kal and Eltrion and it works for them. Gregor lets Jules go because he doesn't like how attached Jules is to Ashling and she is so mad cause she regarded Jules as a friend who could understand her. One day her father is arrested and no one knows why but Jules helps her sneak in to see her dad then he is arrested after. Somethings brewing and strange things are happening and in the middle of it all Ashling has found out she is pregnant.
This story is very exciting and it was nice to see how a Wikomsette is treated when she chooses the husbands and has a household unlike her mom Regina.
Reviewed on behalf of Once upon an Alpha
A Wife for the Future is an Adult Dystopian romance filled with plenty of steam, tenderness, and an underlining thought provoking plot. We have plenty of countries now that prefer males over females. What if doctors and scientists start tinkering with the genetic code, slowly eliminating the ratio of females born? Let’s face it, as much as certain cultures prefer males over females, they need women. Women and men go hand in hand. You cannot create life without the other.
I found this story to be absolutely original and fresh. Ashling comes from our current time. If you’ve read book 1, The Wikomsette, you learned that her mom is from the present, while her dad is from the future. [Quick recap: Her dad was part of an elite team of scientists chosen to go back in time to try to correct the wrong and save mankind.] Ashling is aware of her father’s true identity, and what is expected of her. On her twentieth birthday, she and her father must return to his time. She’s needed in the future. Humanity needs her in the future.
With the shortage of women, it’s perfectly acceptable and expected for women to take on more than one husband. A tribe of men. And keep the human race going. Men between certain ages are presented to her for her choosing. Sharing herself with multiple men wasn’t as much of a shock as she expected, but the fact that these men were okay with it, no jealousy whatsoever, at times astounded and confused her. There is a sort of role reversal in the future. Men are happy and eager to work, tend to the home, and raise the kids, while assuring the woman is content in life. Um…I’d like to visit this majestic place.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the connections Ashling formed between her and her men. Each man is different and unique. They each bring a different dynamic to the home and the bedroom. My favorite though was a man who wasn’t a husband…yet. Oh, but I desperately wanted him to be.
Everything’s not exactly orgasmic bliss though. There are evils lurking in the background, threatening to rock the foundation. And her father is caught up in the nightmare. Set up and falsely imprisoned for crimes he did not commit.
The action that ensues and where the story takes us in the end is well told and kept me on edge. The overall wrap up left me teary eyed and completely satisfied. I really did not want to see this story end. I wanted the characters to continue on and entertain me. I was THAT drawn to them.
The author did a phenomenal job connecting both books and bringing this duet to an end.
