Helispeta wanted to marry well... but not THIS well.
What is an ambitious young princess to do when she finds herself irrevocably married to the wrong god?  What is her jilted fiance to do?
Prince Devoron-Vitan, supreme commander of the Tigron Empire's star forces, wants to go home and find out what the star-blazes is going on.  In one short gestate, his twin brother Djohn-Kronos has killed their father, taken the throne, nullified all existing royal betrothals, and started a war.
Then, rumors reach Devoron-Vitan that Djohn-Kronos intends to catch Devoron-Vitan's fiancee, Helispeta, in his MATING NET.

Review: Mating Net

The Prologue makes you breathless! Rowena Cherry wastes no time in sweeping you into the sci-fi fantastical world she's created, and into the mind and body of ‘the greatest of the Great Djinn, the god-Emperor Djohn-Kronos,' who is ‘rut-enraged' and determined to take a virgin to wife.

Not just any virgin, mind you, but one that has been promised to his identical twin brother. Yeah, baby, you get an immediate insight into the competitive relationship those two brothers share.

Quick imagery puts you in the cockpit of Djohn-Kronos's craft, letting you know that he is also a pilot of skill, while he sweeps over the planet—eyeing and spying his target in the Tigron school for virgin princesses—where they swim naked in murky gravity-defying pools, where a bio-dome covers to keep their virginal scents from floating up to make the Djinn sexually crazy. Oh yeah, and that also keeps him out. But he's a Djinn.

And we already know that he's the “Great Djinn,” and the greatest of those.
So, uh, yeah. He's not letting a flimsy little bio-dome keep him down. Er, up.
You know what I mean. He's already up, flying high, and ready to do the great thing. I already mentioned that he was rut-enraged, right?

So, the prologue ends with us poised on the end of our seats, knowing that this great Djinn is getting ready to poke his head into what? Virgin territory? Love and war?

I'm not gonna encapsulate the whole story. I'll just say…if ya like fantasy, and fast thinking, pick this one up.

“That Rowena Cherry packed so much action into less than 15,000 words is mind-boggling. It's hard enough when you writer Contemporary Romance or Historical Romance - the readers are "used" to these worlds so you don't have to fill in all the spaces. But in Sci-Fi Romance, you are really biting off a major task. Cherry does it and style, originality and deftness that will leave the reader amazed. It's a racy, razor edge of a tale, which will leave you amazed at how she does so much with so few pages.”
