A Tricky Experiment
“Maybe, sweetheart, we should have sex to prove to you that you can and will enjoy it.” “I enjoyed it once. I am very happy with my memories. I don’t need you or your experiment to prove anything,” she said stiffly. “Once?” He raised an eyebrow. His lips twitched. Too late, Martia-Djulia realized that she had just contradicted one of her earlier statements. “The Aim of the Experiment is to discover whether or not we are sexually compatible,” Djetth said loftily. She suspected that he was amusing himself by parodying a formal checklist. “Method: to have mind-blowing recreational sex using positions and techniques that mitigate or avoid unfortunate consequences. Expected result--” “What unfortunate consequences?” “Insects in your hair?” he teased. “Sand in your baby box. A baby. Infection. Injury. Legal consummation of a Mating we might not want.” His gaze flickered. Martia-Djulia had the impression that his list was deliberately ordered. “Injury to whom?” she asked, ignoring the glossed over “baby.” “I’ve wondered why you haven’t blasted me backward onto my butt since our Mating Day. I’ve certainly deserved it.” “Yes you have!” she agreed heatedly.

This book has one of the best ending sequences. … Ms. Cherry has created a seriously evil villain. … Trust me, Insufficient Mating Material is a book you don’t want to miss. Be sure to check out the back-story in Rowena Cherry’s Forced Mate. ~bookmaedin, for www.ibookdb.net
Stellar wit, wonderful characters and amazing research into basic and not so basic survival techniques... This was without a doubt one of my favorite reads of 2007! ~Kenda Montgomery.
INSUFFICIENT MATING MATERIAL takes up where FORCED MATE ended, with Djetthro-Jason (Jethro-Jason) severely beaten, about to undergo surgery to change his face and identity before his shotgun wedding to the frivolous Princess Martia-Djulia (Marsha-Julia).
No one gives a thought to how Martia-Djulia might behave when she realizes that it’s not her unsuitable lover, Commander Jason, but a stranger being frog-marched up the aisle, and her surprising reaction sets off a firestorm of rumor… and rattles a murderer who thought he’d gotten away with an ancient crime.
INSUFFICIENT MATING MATERIAL is an outstanding sequel to FORCED MATE! Cherry skillfully combines mystery, romance, and humor with a fast-paced science fiction adventure. I couldn’t put it down! ~ Jean, Fallen Angel Reviews
