This one has been sitting on my shelves for a long time. 2004, I believe. So when I picked it up I didn't remember exactly what drew me to the book in the first place. For some reason, I was thinking it was erotica or that borderline romantica, but it's a proper romance, a sf/futuristic one.

Even though sex is hinted about and discussed quite a bit, it doesn't end up being shown till fairly late in the book. Interesting world building, although some of the terminology made me roll my eyes a bit. Cool toilets. (LOL. And, no, I'm not going to explain.)

Basically your traditional experienced alpha male vs virginal, but far from helpless, female. I have one friend who would cringe. But it was just what I needed - a light but engaging read.

Oh, and as for cover art, I would die of shock if the artist ever laid eyes on the book. So not how Tigger looked in my head. The guy looks like some corporate executive sitting down after a racket ball game over lunch, not the ruler of the known universe.
