Gemme is a hi-tech matchmaker who pairs the next generation of Lifers aboard the Expedition, a deep space transport vessel destined for Paradise 18. When the identity of her lifemate pops up on her screen, she’s shocked that he’s the achingly gorgeous and highly sought after Lieutenant Miles Brentwood—a man oblivious to her existence. Believing everyone will think she contrived the match, she erases it from the computer’s memory.
Just as comets pummel the ship and destroy the pairing system forever. With the Expedition disabled, the colonists must crash land on the barren ice world of Tundra 37 where Gemme is reassigned to an exploratory mission, led by Lieutenant Brentwood. Only in the frozen tundra does she understand the shape of his heart and why the computer has entwined their destinies.
Gemme Reiner’s world is made up mostly of numbers. It’s her job to analyze data aboard the Expedition, specifically data related to human pairings. And she’s fine with that. They don’t call her the Matchmaker without reason. Her matches have nothing to do with love, and everything to do with the survival of the species.
Lieutenant Miles Brentwood is charged with ensuring things run smoothly on the Expedition, and overseeing the health and safety of its human inhabitants. To him, humans aren’t just numbers and statistics; they’re real people with lives and loves of their own.
Their world gets turned upside down and inside out when the best laid plans of their forefathers go awry. A field of comets not only forces a change in strategy, but reveals hidden agendas that ensure the end of everyone’s peaceful life on board the ship.
Let me be one of the first to say Ms. Dionne has outdone herself with this story. While some of the plot lines might seem familiar, let me assure you they are not. Carefully crafted twists and surprises have made this story an action packed thrill ride from beginning to end. It has one of the most interesting sub plots I’ve read in a very long time. If you are a fan of sci-fi romance, you’ve got to read this book.
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Paradise 21. This story is even better. If you are looking for your next favorite author, try Aubrie Dionne, and read Tundra 37. You won’t be disappointed.
