Why would a sci-fi girl need a barbarian hero?

Warrior's WomanTo save her pacifist planet from an invading horde of evil barbarian warriors, of course. Sort of the fight fire with fire mentality. When her planet is enslaved, Tedra De Arr goes in search of a legendary warrior planet hoping to convince the inhabitants to come to the rescue. What she finds is the love of her life. Warrior’s Woman by Johanna Lindsey is squarely on the romance side of the sci-fi romance spectrum. I’d read many of her historical romances before I stumbled on this book and immediately danced a happy jig. Pure fun! Sometimes sci-fi romance doesn’t need to make sense.

What I loved about the heroine:

Tedra is feisty, smart and adventurous.

What I loved about the hero:

Challen is big, arrogant, always in control, but also tender-hearted, and too sexy for his own good.

Other cool stuff:

Martha – the spaceship with a will of its own.   Corth – the handsome android who is given a personality by Martha. A society with “stress centers” – not going to explain that one, you’ll just have to read the book.
