Publisher's Summary

Four hundred years in the future, women control the world but Khan Aurelius, ruler of the last free men, is determined to take back the power that has been denied men for centuries. Outnumbered by far, he knows that women need to give up their power willingly and with one of their councilwomen as a hostage, he's certain he can influence her with his superior male intellect. She is just a soft woman, after all.

Councilwoman Pearl has sacrificed herself to save an innocent priestess. Trapped in the Northlands, her soft voice and sugar-coated view of the world doesn't impress Khan, who constantly challenges her by playing his mind games to corrupt her and see things his way.

It's a battle of words and wills when the two intelligent rulers clash. Will Pearl succeed in bringing enlightenment and democracy to the primitive Nmen or will Khan corrupt her with his charm first?

Contains mature themes.

PRETTY GOOD

Book 2 in this Series is the story of Khan and Pearl. Khan is the ruler of the Men. Councilwoman Pearl agreed to be his captive in exchange for the release of a stolen priestess (by a distraught Magni who was looking for his runaway wife). Khan is now Pearl’s protector and they are both well matched in intelligence so they bicker a lot. They are working on a special experiment on having one man and one woman teach young children to see if they can work together. During their months together, they fall in love.

It's pretty good. The series in general is pretty good. It's not in my favorites list, but it's definitely entertaining and I keep listening! You'll get a battle of the genders, light sex, love, and a HEA.

Good story, unfulfilling romance

This book put me in a weird position of really wanting the couple to work out but also not feeling attached to them whatsoever. They were together but I couldn’t really feel it if that makes sense.
