As far as job hazards go, Douglass Fraser didn’t think crash-landing on an alien planet and spending her recuperation being erotically pleasured by three gorgeous men was in the United Planetary Parcel Service’s courier handbook. There certainly wasn’t a section on what to do when a very sexy king wants you to have his baby and save his world.

Marcus Blood Axe isn’t only a descendant of ancient Viking space travelers, he’s also a ruler dealing with a shortage of fertile women and no heir. Surely the gods are on his side when Douglass drops out of the sky and into his bed, giving him a last chance to stop his people’s death spiral into extinction.

Despite the exquisite pleasures to be found in the king’s arms, Douglass wants more from Marcus than to be his broodmare. When another woman claims to be pregnant with Marcus’ child, it’s past time to get back home. Now the war Marcus wages is one of sensual passion designed to convince his Earth woman that she’s worth everything to him…even if it means giving up what he cherishes most.

Douglass won’t be playing the typical female the warriors think they know. But the servants do a very good job of “coddling” her and seeing to her needs. Pleasure like Douglass has never known literally at her beck and call, even before she calls.

Marcus is the definition of alpha male, a King whose word is law. He rules a planet where women are a precious commodity, with no babes being born and no one knows why. He’s a King that always puts the needs of his people and planet first.

The heroine was awesome, a sassy mix of intelligence and sauciness. Something like a modern woman who crash lands in cave man days. To see how the men viewed themselves and the total arrogance they displayed had me giggling.

Even as jaded as I am, I had a few awww moments quickly followed by the thought that I might need a cold shower. This one is hot, hot, hot. The running theme of this story is most surely communication or the lack there of. As often happens, the hero and heroine could have avoided a whole lot of conflict by simply communicating.

Still, it was easy 4 star rating for me, with the biggest reason being the book was truly fun. It was a quick, easy read, and the story flowed well. The dialogue was good and the sex was scorching! The main characters and the secondary interacted well, and I will be looking forward to the next two books in this series which are already out. I’d recommend this to any Sci-Fi lover out there. I loved it!
