Maon Keefe has always been told he's doomed to fail as a husband. Despite his dream of having his own family, he decides never to marry. Instead he lives life as a player and focuses on becoming a capable marshal of Tallav. Then he is shot, and the most-wanted criminal he's escorting escapes his custody. Now he fears his career, his one success in life, is doomed.
Assigned to ferret out the cause of missing shipments for a VIP aristocrat, he meets Selina Shirley. He finds himself inexplicably attracted to her despite her frumpy appearance. When he meets a hooded, masked, scorching-hot woman at his friend's club, he's torn between the two women. Both ignite his imagination. Either might be the woman to change him into successful husband material.
Selina Shirley organizes her life like she organizes her business, taking control of all aspects of each. She's concluded that she must marry to get an heir and that her future husband must be totally under her control. Hidden behind a hood and mask, as Lasair, she meets Maon and her instant attraction to him leads her to break her own rules and become involved with him. But he's also the marshal assigned to investigate thefts at her company. When his broad streak of protective alpha male comes into play, it obvious he'll never accept a wife ruling over him. To stick to her plan to marry the perfect husband, she must ignore her heart and dump Maon.

Best kinky SF romance evah!
I'm over the moon for Cailin Briste's newest Marshall of Tallav - Maon Keefe. He's a hero like i've never read before - a Marshall of Tallav whose skills and courage are eclipsed by his own toxic self-denigration. He thinks he's a failure. He thinks no one can love him. He's into exhibitionism and has a deeply hidden submissive streak in the bedroom. He's also strong, principled, and incredibly resourceful. In short, he's the perfect match for the one woman on matriarchal Tallav who might be able to love him - Selina- but she's a client, and professional ethics rule. Until they don't. The stunningly erotic and complex love between Maon and Selina plays out against an engrossing plot of intergalactic drug-smuggling, organized crime wars, family feuds, and attempts on Selina's life. The action is thrilling, the suspense is gripping, the BDSM scenes are hot and the sexy romance between Maon and Selina is positively incendiary. I thank Hidden Gems for the ARC, and this is my voluntary, independent and uncompensated opinion: Maon, Marshall of Tallav gets five flaming stars.
