Dragged to a bar to find a man by her younger sister, Tamara is not a happy Special Service agent. Dressed, barely, she draws the attention of a tall grey eyed man. When she dismisses him as too conceited and arrogant she leaves the bar. But he follows. Appears the Bandarian won’t take no for an answer. She doesn’t know it, but he has a good reason for the way he is…..
Kendrick is the ruler of Bandar and used to getting what he wants. He can’t figure out why Tamara doesn’t fall in line like all the other women. This intrigues him and the hunt is on. But his prey escapes before he even learns her name. A week later she shows up in his palace with her father, the premier of Federation Earth, asking for military and political assistance with an enemy. He knows just what he wants in exchange. He negotiates for a year of her time, figuring he will quickly get his fill and enjoy her. But soon, a year doesn’t seem like enough, and no other woman will do.
Loved it. Instant chemistry is a favorite of mine, and these two had it in spades. Tamara was spunky without overdoing it and hurting herself in the process. Kendrick was overbearing and egotistical, but in a hot way. Kendrick’s cluelessness was adorable, and it was ironic his friend and fellow philanderer pointed out what was really going on. I can’t wait to read his story. This short read was satisfying on all levels, and the sex was smoking hot. Not to be missed.
