Carla is on her way to perform at a concert, her star finally on the rise. Her whole world comes crashing down with the plane she’s in. Thrilled to be alive, she and the other surviving passengers are confused when their cell phones don’t work. Part of a search party for help, she and her companion are amazed and appalled to find that the plane they were traveling in went farther than anyone anticipated. They have crashed in the year 2064 and the post-apocalyptic world is frightening and decidedly primitive. Women are a commodity and Carla soon finds herself on the block as the prize in a Bride Fight. When the winner is Taye, a man they call a wolf, she is stunned and confused. And finds out things are even more different in the future than she thought.
Carla was presented as a strong but practical woman. She acclimates quickly, as she really must, and while accepting of the situation, not so much about her new husband. He’s eager to please, and definitely different. How different, while a shock, is just par for the course for her. Her aplomb attitude goes a long ways towards forging a bond. Taye does the rest with his willingness and eagerness to win over his mate. While not experienced with a woman per se, he’s read erotic novels and it is humorous when he tries to follow the "script". While the time-travel would have been enough for an interesting story, the shapeshifter aspect added another layer of problems and misunderstanding to keep the story moving. A good read.
