MY FAVORITE EARTHLING
Picking up where her comic
adventure Your Planet or Mine? left
off, Grant quickly places both Earth and the Jasper family in more serious jeopardy. This interstellar romp starts
off fast and soon is hip deep in sexy humor and deadly assassination attempts. Grant has really hit her
stride with this marvelous blend of humor and danger.
While investigating the spacecraft left on Earth by the alien REEF assassin, Jared Jasper inadvertently opens a link to a distant world and a royally pissed-off queen.
To prevent Earth from joining forces with their enemy the Horde, it is decided that Queen Keira should marry Jared, who she mistakenly thinks is
the Prince of Earth. With the future
of his planet on the line, Jared has
little choice, so he agrees and travels across the galaxy. A botched assassination attempt clues him in that he has more to worry about than just an arrogant and beautiful new wife. (HQN, Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
