Even for a Zetithian, Tarq Zulveidinoe's sexual prowess is legendary. Believing it's all he's good for, Tarq sets out to perpetuate his threatened species by offering his services to women across the galaxy...
Lucinda Force is the sensitive dark horse in a self-absorbed family, repeatedly told that no man will ever want such a plain woman. Lucy longs for romance, but is resigned to her loveless lot in life-until Tarq walks through the door of her father's restaurant on Talus Five...
Tarq and Lucy seemed to be the perfect match for one another. Both of them had their own self-image and self-worth issues that made them believe they wouldn’t receive love from the other. Lucy’s issues stemmed from her family, mostly her father, and Tarq’s stemmed from his believe that all he was good for was sex.

I truly felt bad for Tarq, hearing him talk down about himself. In my opinion he was a very great character. Although his job is sex, he immediately felt and wanted more with Lucy. They both brought out the best in each other. And showed each other they were more than they thought themselves to be.

Their mountain adventure helped them to realize they were meant for one another. With the introduction of Vertigan, another potential suitor for Lucy, it put the very real prospect of Lucy and Tarq not being together in the forefront of both of their minds.

I felt bad for Vertigan, because I loved him as well and wanted him to be happy. I just hope the next installment in this series is his and he finds that happiness. Stud was yet another great addition to the series.
