"3 Size Matters Stars"
Dr. Cecilia - Ceci - Bradford at your service. I dance, rock climb, and have mastered MMA because just being a 26-year-old doctor isn't enough.

That was getting me by until Tabron showed up - or, more specifically, until the six-foot-two brute of a Viking whisked me off to another planet because his leader is dying. And the joy didn't end there. I'm being forced to choose a mate.

I freed him from imprisonment only to become his pawn. I, Shandria Langston, last remaining daughter of the leader of the Sunan, was charged with an impossible task.

No. Instead of being properly appreciative of this selfless act, of being grateful that I tended to him through a deathly illness, the bastard's kidnapped me.
