Good May to December novel.
Female character only look adult when she's under 18 & genetically modified to survive on world with hostile environment.
Inadvertently mocked regency romance with its alien cover.

This first novel of the Skolian Empire opera, won the 2001 Nebula award. It has some sexual content, but not enough to warrant a parent to stop a 13 year old from reading it.

One of the best romantic science fiction novels I've read for a long time. The plot is exquisite; the author takes a common storyline and embroiders it with a heartwarming mixture of tension and pure, rosy romance.
