Botanist Mariss Sakari, badly hurt by love, has done the only logical thing to keep her from getting hurt again. She's let the computers select her ideal mate. Now she's on her way to a newly colonized world to meet her computer-selected future husband, but it's anything but an easy voyage. First she clashes with Captain Kade Land, a cynical, down-on-his-luck space jockey with a questionable past. To make matters worse, crooked interstellar cops are on Kade's tail. After a crash landing in the wilderness, Kade agrees to escort Mariss to the colony where her future husband waits for her. Together, they embark on a trek across a startlingly beautiful, sometimes deadly, alien landscape. Kade grows to love Mariss, and he's sure she's in love with him, but she insists on sticking to her plan. Kade knows that love can't be programmed, but time is running out. Before it's too late, can he convince the emotionally wounded Mariss that only the heart can choose a person's...One Perfect Mate?
