A fun enjoyable sci-fi romance.

Heroine escapes from an unwanted marriage. Her virginity is a commodity, and makes her a target, so she escapes to the `sporting house' to get rid of it. Her first experience turns out to be with Hero Jarek san Ranul, the leader of a group of `Shielders' who are being hunted to extinction by the galaxy rulers. Turns out the heroine, is born `Enhancer' who could help him save his people by locating a hidden wormhole.

I have to say that Catherine Spangler has done it again for me, this has to be my favorite book in the series so far! Its the third in the Shielder Series. Its definitely one of those where you wish the story could keep going on and on. At the end it left me wanting more, because it was such a well written and genuine story.

You have Jarek San Ranul, whose father has recently died, who was leader of the Shielders. Now Jarek knows he has to find a way to save his people or they will become extinct...more
Certainly better than the last one.

Ok, would it be possible for a h in this series not to be a nincompoop? This one was doing good until... she decided to run after seeing another enhancer being hauled off to a slave auction. First she stuns the H, then she blunders right into the dastardly uncle's clutches. Further, she only thinks of that poor enhancer in terms of "oh no! If they find out they'll sell me too!" Never, "hey Jarek, I saw one being hauled off to that place there." Coward to think...more

This is the third book in the Shielder sci-fi romance series. This is a re-read for me, although this is definitely NOT my favorite book in this great series. However, this book is key to the overall series because this where Jarek fights to find a way out for the Shielder race.

Unlike the female characters in the other books (there are 5 in total), the heroine in this story is more than a bit TSTL and although she comes through a few times, she comes off as fearful of her own shadow and more th...more
3.5 stars.
Of the entire series, this has to be the worst. I didn't exactly hate it, but it was so ... blah that I had to remind myself that all the other characters where clearly more fascinating. Jarek's story, I guess I had really high hopes. There was very little chemistry and seriously no real love.
Okay. They're going to the other dimensional promised land, but first there must be romance (it being a romance novel and all). Not really much else going on here.
