What would you do if Earth didn’t have enough men? Would you take a chance and leave the only world you knew behind? This is the decision Faith Reid faces. Placing all her hope in a new government program, she seizes the opportunity that offers a chance for the women of Earth to find love among the stars, on a world beyond the one they know. How many times can one man risk rejection? Would you give up on your dreams? Torkel Alonson has had enough of being ignored and looked over by females on his adopted home world of Enotia. His pride has suffered and he must accept the painful truth. Females will never choose a male with his evil lineage despite his honorable service to his government’s military. Can two people looking for the same thing find not just what they want but what they need in one another?
Five Boundless Stars
I loved this story; absolutely LOVED it! There are two people who are so desperate for love and family, it’s inevitable they be together. The love scenes between the two are absolutely scorching hot, and I loved this world that Howard built.
This was one of those stories that had me sitting on my couch in tears. I don’t cry often, and when a story can lead me to that point, I HAVE to give it five stars. Faith and Torkel go through so much; these two characters captured my heart.
I really want to jump into the next book and I hope it comes out on audio with Michael Pauley as narrator, he did such a wonderful job in the first; I hope he continues the series.
