Very original Sci-Fi tale, done with a wicked wit.

Bad Points

General Comments
I just finished re-reading Forced Mate, anticipating the second in the series coming out in February. Tarrant-Arragon, is a great Djinn, the next god-Emperor of Tigron. All the virgins of the universe belong to him. Well, nothing like having such a heavy burden. The problems facing the Poor Lord Emperor is such a burden. He storms around projecting Mr. Macho, Ruler of the Universe because it's what is expected of him. However, the Djinns are getting scarce in this neck of the Universe, so 'Tigger' must find a bride quickly. The only one fitting the bill is his second cousin, who is half-Djinn, half-earthling. Tigger's lass cannot just live in a bottle, wears nifty 'I Dream of..' pink outfits, and blinks her way through all her predicaments. Nope, Djinn-Vera is a Saurian Knight, dedicated to bringing down the Tigger's tyranny at all costs. Okay, things are starting to get complicated in Djinn-Djinn land! Djinn-Vera is betrothed to Djetthro-Jason, another cousin, but she is attracted to the handsome man she believes is a Saurian Knight she assumes her father sent. Tarrant cannot risk letting this prime piece of marriage material get away from him, so he abducts Djinn-Vera. Only Djinn-Vera has a stubborn case of 'crossed legs' and isn't about to go along with the mating ritual Tarrant's people expect from him. Figuring is if she knew he was Mr. Big Ruler of the Universe might make it hard to get her wedded and bedded, he sets out to capture Djinn-Vera's heart without letting her know who is literally taking her to the stars.

Cherry brings her own style of humour to this challenging book, that leaves the door open to many more adventures for the Djinn. It's a sexy adventure that will keep you entertained. I highly suggest ordering now, because the sequel, Insufficient Mating Material, comes out in February 2007. At that point, you can bet Forced Mate will be hard to get a hold of. I also recommend the novella by Cherry, Mating Net, which is a prequel to Forced Mate. So learn just how sexy chess can be!
