Book Summary: (From Whiskey Creek Press)
On the distant planet of Erda, in a future of a thousand years hence, two lovers meet - but cannot mate. She is a kind and caring Erdan female named Alorea, and he is the wealthy and powerful Markus from Earth. They are both humanoids, together in the Earth colony on that other world, who find awesome interest and attraction to each other.

But Markus has a little son, and is going through a terrible divorce..... or so he says. He is rough and gruff with her, at least initially. Alorea finds herself trying to attract him desperately, but cannot break through his self-imposed distance. And there are seemingly insurmountable problems of language, culture, society, and family differences - in addition to their being from different planets.

It seems as if the Fates continue to bring them back together, no matter how hard they think they should remain apart. And together they must suffer and survive too many terrible surprises, especially from those who would destroy them both. Only the growing strength of their caring and desire for each other will see them through. Though this is only if they can somehow reach the others true self.

In a cold alien world of dry and barren landscape, can anyone find warmth and happiness? Will the power of love still be possible for humans and aliens? This novel hopes to find out.

My Review:
*This book is a futuristic science fiction romance, and it initially caught my attention with it's cover! Now, when I first started reading I was unsure if I was going to like it or not. The more I read though, the more I enjoyed it!
*We follow out two main characters, Alorea and Markus, throughout heir tumultuous journey to love. The readers (us) know that they're in love but it takes them a while to realize it LOL. The tension building between the two really kept me interested and built up the story.
*Since it was a futuristic story you had to learn some terminology, but nothing complicated that will fry your brain cells of course. For example (future)cars are shuttles and you don't get gas...you have to recharge your power cell! Now there are definitely some "interesting" things you learn about the alien planet, but you'll have to read it to find out those details.
*And lest I should forget. The dry humor (my favorite kind) was abundant throughout the story which I really liked!
*Overall I would say this was an enjoyable read...You can check out more about the book and other titles from Whiskey Creek Press @ http://www.whiskeycreekpress.com/

  1. Actually the story is intended to be in the year 3009. Perhaps the "2" is a misprint (?) - A M D
