"On a low-tech world, an angel is told to marry a human slave woman. She resents the forced marriage, but if she refuses to sing by his side, God promised to destroy the land. Delightful tale, both characters are interesting, the romance develops slowly so it doesn't feel forced or unnatural, no sex. 8/10"
"A girl on a backwards planet, about to be forced into an marriage, meets a golden off-planet stranger. The planet's ppl are a result of long-ago genetic manipulation for desirable personality traits."
"A strong science fiction novel. A world of 90% women, live in clans & reproduce by cloning. They mate with men only once a yr. One of these daughters, an outcast, meets an astronaut crashes on the planet, and threatens this society."
