In 2488, Dr. Sarah Johnson feels restless, both professionally and personally. She gets the perfect opportunity to explore new territories and find a husband when the New Life Collective offers a trip to the Outer Colonies. But her plans take a detour when the Gaians, a longtime enemy of Earthers, board the ship.

Gaian men must attach themselves to a woman before they can respond sexually and fall in love. Of course, General Garran, leader of all Gaians, attaches to Sarah, who has hated him for years.

This is a feisty, spicy yet tender tale, carefully blended by Miller in her debut novel with satisfying results. The reader will savor the well-drawn characters and the twists in this love-conquers-all story. (dl $5.50, dk $5.99)
