Warrior's Woman (Ly-San-Ter Family #1)
Resilient beauty Tedra has devoted her life to the art of combat, and no one has ever been able to pierce through her rigid armor of single-minded purpose. When political upheaval forces her to flee her homeland Tedra finds, to her dismay, that her only hope of survival lies in the arms of Challen, a fierce and powerful soldier.
I loved Tedra. She was pretty awesome: independent, upbeat, fashionable, intelligent. I found it hard to believe she would be happy being the 'little woman' for Old School Macho Guy Challen. I k...more
I don't know if the author wanted to be ironical. Sure as hell she should have stuck with the bodice-rippers. At least in a so called historical setting some things do have a (warped) sense.
Why writing about a warrior woman, a woman in the secret service, good enough to defend presidents and the like and then, a few chapters later, transform her in to a useless, weak, dumb "prisoner". If strength was all that jazz, martial arts wouldn't exist. She is supposed to be expert in them...more
In search of help, she stumbles upon a planet of hunky barbarians and -- after losing a bet -- becomes one barbarian's love slave for a month.
(view spoiler)[Johanna Lindsey is a well known writer of historical romance, not sci fi. I am convinced that this book is Lindsey's way of having fun with romance tropes. The female fighter is a verbose virgin with a beefcake fetish and t...more
Menggambarkan bagaimana Tedra mengarungi lintasan bintang untuk mencari pasukan yang bisa mengalahkan pemerintah dari kaum oposisi yang saat ini sedang melakukan kudeta dan berencana membawa semua pihak wanita ke planet lain untuk dijadikan budak. dibantu dengan sahabatnya serta Martha, komputer yang genius, akhirnya Tedra mengunjungi planet induk dari kelompok ya...more
Picture a fiercely independent uber-feminist, forced to flee her home, taking refuge in an apparently-friendly port -- only to discover that her "safe haven" is a place where men rule and women obey, and where she is quickly captured by the first man she has ever encountered who cannot be overpowered by her.
Tedra has never met the man she cannot beat in a fair fight... until now. And when she challeng...more
Warrior’s Woman is pure, fantasy silliness and it’s almost embarrassing that I like it. Then again, my favorite movie of all time is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and I feel the same way about it, so I’ll describe it the same way: it’s like loving a big, dumb jock.
All right, here’s the plotline: Tedra De Arr is a...more
Tedra is a top level government security police person on the planet Kystran. People have sex sharing for pleasure not to procreate. The government creates humans by taking cells from the most desirable subjects, grows them in test tubes, and then raises the children in group centers and schools. There are no parents, families, etc. Machines create all food. T...more

not bad, at least not bored while reading this.
Selama baca novel ini, mengingatkanku akan kisah bidadari yang turun ke bumi, mandi di sungai, saat hendak kembali ke khayangan baru sadar telah kehilangan selendangnya, ternyata selendang tsb telah dicuri dan disembunyikan oleh seorang pria yang diam2 memperhatikannya saat mandi dan jatuh hati kepada sang bidadari.
sang bidadari pun menikah dengan si pria manusia bumi.
suatu hari, sang bidadari menemukan kembali selendangnya yang disembunyik...more
Update: I finished my re-read of this book a few minutes ago. I know a lot of other readers don't like the dominant male / submissive female roles exhibited by the protagonists, but I really enjoy their interactions. I particularly like the fact that Tedra is not really submissi...more
To me, this was not a true futuristic romance. Sure, it had spaceships and different planets and a smartass supercomputer, but the romance was definitely stuck in the Dark Ages.
The hero would have been very at home as a Native American in American West Historical romances. He's all about carrying the small, helpless female off into the sunset and "claiming" her. I felt like the first 60 pages (yes, it isn't until page 60 that we meet our dashing hero) were abou...more
In a futuristic society Tedra finds a planet of warrior barbarians (or is it barbarian warriors?). Tedra has always been the toughest person she knows, so she at first resists and then loves being do...more
I heart every bit of it, and have since I first read it about twenty years ago. I read it so many times that I incorporated "farden" into my vocabula...more
Pertama baca, agak2 pusing n gak kebayang bentuk planet di tempat Tedra berada, jadi sempet dianggurin dulu nih buku pdhl baru baca bab 1. Pas mulai membaca dengan lebih menghayati, malah jadi gak bisa berenti baca saking serunya. Walo agak gimana gitu pas baca adegan hot-nya ;p, tapi krn byk percakapan antara Tedra, Challen & tokoh2 yang ada dibuku ini, dan istilah2 yang bikin ketawa-ketiwi ga jelas, bikin gw bener2 suka ma buku ini. Rasanya ga rela pas udah se...more
I had read the 3rd novel in this series (which actually started off on Earth), so I decided to put this novel in m...more
I read this when I was a pre-teen. In fact, I used to think Johanna Lindsey was the shit back then. I can only laugh at myself.
Anyway, this one is actually a good story, you just have to accept the cover, accept Fabio, and get over it. I can't really say if my liking it is mostly nostalgia, or if it's really as good as I remember it. It's sort of the epitome of trashy-romance-novel. I have never found the brawny blond hero type to...more
