"SF Romance with compelling characters"

Ashe Martez is a Huntress, a bounty hunter from the planet Malia. She is chasing a slave trader and follows him to Earth, where he has been kidnapping women for his trade. Sheriff Ty Jacobson has been keeping track of the many women, who have disappeared. He finds himself drawn to the strange young woman, who he stopped for speeding. Ashe is using her computer to make the necessary actions to blend in with the human population. However, things don't go smoothly, at first, and she finds herself stopped for speeding. Ty keeps an eye on Ashe and finds himself involved in her case.

THE SHERIFF AND THE HUNTRESS is a science fiction romance with compelling characters. Although THE SHERIFF AND THE HUNTRESS started off a little slow, I soon found myself involved in the characters' lives. I would have enjoyed more explanation of Ashe's society. There was another aspect of the book, that I found mildly annoying-- the eye color of the hero and heroine was mentioned a lot. All in all, THE SHERIFF AND THE HUNTRESS was a nice read, that kept my attention but had aspects which I found mildly annoying.
