Earth of the future is a super conforming, sexually repressed version of itself. Dr. Xan Milford, for one, is tired of never being able to find satisfaction with a sexual partner. He’s a sexual Dominant in need of a submissive. Unfortunately, society prohibits any sexual behavior The Authority considers to be “deviant.” A D/s relationship just doesn’t quite fit in with accepted sexual practices.

So, the good doctor creates what he considers to be the perfect woman. She’s a sexual submissive who craves only to please him. Lilith has been created to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. Even after an accident forces him to rush her programming, she comes to life in flawless perfection.

But The Authority knows all and sends their most trusted guardian to retrieve the abomination and her creator. Too bad Lilith has other ideas…

 

Review:  The Perfect Woman is an out of the box science fiction romance that makes you think. In the future, the pleasure taken for granted in the present has been outlawed. People are hunted down and imprisoned for their perceived perversions. Dr. Xan realized some time ago he’s a Dom, and his needs are those that can only be met by a particular type of person known as a submissive. Since they no longer exist, he opts to make his own. The A.I is known as Lilith, and when a freak lighting storm interrupts her data upload, everything changes.

More than a machine, Lilith is able to experience life as we do and pushes the boundaries of what we perceive artificial intelligence to be. The perfect submissive, hell bent on pleasing the man who brought her to life; Lilith is a skilled pro at sexual pleasure. It’s emotions that are new and tricky to figure out.

When an officer discovers what Dr. Xan has done, their happily-ever-after is threatened. I loved the way Ms. Karland and Ms. Azod’s unique environment, and situation were a breath of fresh air in romance. She wove a beautiful web of details and emotions that placed me in the scene and had me asking what I would do in that situation.

For fans of Science Fiction, this is a must read.
