"a science fiction romance with a lot to offer"
Jasmine is hunting her friend in the Alaskan wilds, when an
intermittent hot spot between worlds sends her on a one-way
trip to another place where the winters are warmer, there
are three moons, and the guys are all werewolves. Well,
actually they are called haunts, and it seems that her
friend Rihlia who she knows as Wiley is one of them. Their
princess and married to their king, to be exact.
To make matters more interesting, Jasmine, an otherwise
normal young woman, turns out to be a sylph, a human who
emits a pheromone irresistible to unmated haunts, including
Keilor, the king's cousin, master of the hunt, and the
hunkiest guy on this new planet.
Under the circumstances neither Jasmine nor Keilor stand a
chance of avoiding each other, especially since Rihlia
claims Jasmine as a sister of the heart, and thus a member
of the royal family. For a while they try, but it is clear
that these women from Earth are in for a lifetime of
teasing danger from the new men around them.
Add into the mix some local human types who have symbionts,
creatures that can take many forms including motorcycles
and hang-gliders; stir in some small giraffe-like animals
that are pets, include a host of people out to kill Jasmine
for who she is and what she represents... very few of whom
are males, though. Oh, and don't forget the hot sex scenes
when Jasmine and Keilor finally work out their
differences. All in all you have the makings of a science
fiction romance with a lot to offer.
