It’s time for the Breeding Festival on the planet of Qurilixen. Forty young Earth women are being offered up. The Qurilixians are tall, virile and very male. During the ceremonies, the men will choose their brides. Rumor has it that four princes will be looking for their own brides. Excitement is running high.

Morrigan Blake doesn’t care about princes or marriage. She’s infiltrated the bride side of the festival to get information for her story. She’s a reporter looking for the biggest scoop of her life. When she sees the Qurilixian males, she likes what she sees, but it won’t stop her from getting pictures and interviews. She’s looking forward to heading back to Earth and finally spending time in her apartment.

Imagine her surprise when she wakes up the next morning to find herself chosen by Ualan. Ualan is the oldest son of the King. Overbearing, arrogant and drop-dead gorgeous, Ualan is definitely an obstacle to Morrigan’s article. Fighting her attraction and Ualan’s lust, she has to figure out a way to get back home to Earth. Ualan knows that Morrigan is the right one for him. His crystal told him so. Now, he just has to convince his stubborn wife that she would enjoy staying with him. There are a few bumps on the rocky road to love for this couple.

Ms. Pillow’s second novel is a wonderfully touching story about people from different worlds-literally-finding forever kind of love. The phrase “marrying in haste, repenting in leisure” comes to mind at times when the battles between these two flare up. Yet each one shows maturity in their willingness to compromise their own dreams for the other. The other three princes and their wives make interesting secondary characters, wetting the reader’s appetite for the next three books in the series.

Dragon Lords: The Barbarian Prince will touch your heart and make your pulse race.
