I like the survival aspect of this romance. The hero is wonderful. The heroine... not so much. She waffles so very much. She goes back to her prejudice point of view constantly treating the hero as less than human.

The plot is interesting enough but it is drawn out and not balenced with the romance as much as it should be.

So, not a great read for me.

3.50 / 3 Stars.

I wavered on my rating but had to drop it to a 3 stars because of all the editing errors. This is when I wish my daughter, who recently graduated from college and wants to be an editor, could get a chance at an editing job. She is soooo needed.

Bioengineered Super soldier saves/meets Queen- fireworks happen. I love sci fi and I love romance. Its so nice to run across a book that feeds both my reading addictions.

Quite a few grammatical and spelling errors. It needs a good editor! The story was a bit boring and the characters never really grabbed me.

This is really a pretty good sci-fi adventure with a lot of romance and a little sex thrown in. Queen Callie is strong if naive; Sentinel Joe is a well-trained Rottweiler who is lost around regular people.

The romance developed at a reasonable pace, with only a couple of "just tell him/her" moments. Only a few sex scenes, which were warm in both senses of the term. The author writes well, though there were some typos that were improperly corrected, some humorously.
