Independent singleton Kate Carson is not about to give sex up, even as fulfillment of a contract made long ago. When she chooses a few fun-filled weeks of sex to fulfill the oath, she expects to return afterward to Earth and her old life.

Tair, the Shimerian psychic warrior cop who is her pactmate, has different plans. He wants her for keeps, and he's playing a tough game to win her. He knows her deepest fantasies and plans to give her everything she craves.

This story is a wonderful, witty sexual adventure. Tair and Kate are evenly matched strong characters who learn to trust and love one another in spite of their differences. (Mar., 224 pp., $15.99)
