No acknowledgment—but is true love the exception?
Meirion Flatt is one of a handful of people participating in the human version of a nature show for an alien race known as the Fey. Kiar, one of the three men chosen to film her, has awakened emotions in her she hasn’t felt since her husband died. She can’t tell if the feelings are mutual or one-sided, but she’s willing to find out.
Kiar takes great pride in doing his job correctly and that pride means everything to him. The network he works for has a strict rule of no acknowledgment. He’s meant to observe, not interact--no matter what. When Meirion sets out to seduce him, his job becomes that much harder.
Two of the universe's most stubborn people are about to clash in a new battle of the sexes. This competition has no rules and neither Meirion nor Kiar is willing to lose. It's her heart versus his pride. Will victory lead to joint happiness or both their defeats as Kiar struggles against... Acknowledging Meirion
Acknowledging Meirion is an unusual novel with a unique premise: the main characters, called the Fey, are other worlders who like to observe, record and broadcast humans using optic cameras. This story operates on several levels inviting the reader to watch the Fey as they watch each other watching the heroine, Meirion Flatt. Meirion agreed to have her life recorded and broadcasted twenty-four hours a day by the Fey never anticipating that she would become attracted to one of her three Fey cameramen. Unfortunately, they are not allowed to interact with her under any circumstances. This does not deter Meirion from trying to illicit some response from Kiar, the Fey she has chosen as her mate, with notable results.
Poor Kiar is not sure what to expect from day to day, and while Ms. Renquest does show his strain at not being able to express his feelings, she is even more adept at relaying Meirion’s despair at not receiving any response from Kiar the one time she makes an overture. This struggle between recognition and denial is at the center of the story and the center of their problems; until Meirion and Kiar can find a middle ground neither will be happy. Ms. Renquest’s sensitivity in writing the scenes between the pair keeps this book from being maudlin, and allows it to have the happy ending readers expect from a true romance. While not a light and frivolous romance, this is definitely a romance, and one well worth reading.
