Illora has been through a lot and is looking forward to a solitary retirement. All she needs to do is to get past the selection process in the Lorahan seralgio for three more days and she is home free.
The Prefect of Lorahan wants Illora and her successful efforts to dodge the selection process has turned him ashen with fury and parts of him blue. He concocts a plan to trap her with her own honesty and the race is on to make her his before the Alliance comes to retrieve her. He must fight his urge to be forthright and deliberately manipulate her into the position as his wife.
Let's hope they both survive the process.
Imperfect is one of Viola Grace’s Terran Times tales, and Illora Danyon is my favorite female character in this series so far. Illora is smart, sassy and very determined to have her retirement. She is not above manipulation and cunning intelligence to get what she wants. I like that about this character.
The Prefect, Kai Miron, is in for a wild ride with this woman, and puts her to the test several times in this story. I loved that Kai was able to use Illora’s innate honesty to win her in the end. I enjoyed the verbal exchanges between Kai and Illora, and as they finally got acquainted, I liked watching the relationship blossom into something passionate and enduring.
I recommend all of Ms. Grace’s Terran Times stories, but this one, however Imperfect, is my personal favorite so far.
