Quantum: Red Rock Alien Mail Order Brides 1 (Intergalactic Dating Agency) - Erin Kellison

They met on a spaceship, she running from a telekinetic alien while searching for her brother, he escaping imprisonment by the same telekinetic alien. They struck a bargain, the stone he hid in her purse for her brother, and a strange partnership was born. A partnership that brought lost comrades back together, a partnership that might turn into more...Life permitting.

Another great installment in the Intergalactic Dating Agency series, though the IGDA plays a very minor role in the story.

Engaging characters; I loved both Raider and Sophie, him a marshmallow-y brute with an ironclad code of honor, her a stubbornly resilient woman determined to save her brother no matter the cost. The romance was perfect, slowly progressing from initial mistrust, through grudging respect and maybe even friendship, to love honed by fire. The supporting cast was awesome and I can't wait to read more about Leif, Hacker, Nina, and Cindy as well in all her alien-y glory.
Interesting story, great suspense and action scenes, a bit of the old tugging-at-the-heartstrings before the "do-over". The length was just right, the pacing spot-on, the voice and narrative style engaging...I truly cannot wait for the rest.
