Options of Survival by Gail Daley
The Will To Survive Is Mankind’s Greatest Weapon.
In the last interplanetary war a bio-weapon killed or sterilized all the males on Vensoog. To keep the colony alive, the Matchmaker Program finds ex-soldiers like Zack Jackson, a hard-as-nails ex-recon soldier who no longer has a home planet, and offer him a new home on Vensoog if he is willing to marry a Vensoog woman. With his home world now pile of radioactive ash, Zack desperately needs a new home for himself and his kids so he accepts the offer.
When the Matchmaker Program pairs him with Katherine, they both wonder if it is a match made in Heaven or Hell? They need to find out quick, because the ruthless Thieves Guild wants the valuable data cube their kids stole back. And they are willing to kill anyone who gets in their way.
Plus, Katherine is falling in love with her new husband and she hasn’t a clue if he feels the same about her…
