"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
