Linnea is an anomaly. Something in her body means that she is unable to have the anti-chaos chip implanted meaning that she can't follow her dreams and become a doctor. When she is forced to become a dignitary to Plane 187 she meets Sam Swift, a doctor of the highest degree. Sam can't help but feel connected to Linnea, and as things take a turn for the worse with the Medical Supreme he finds himself wanting to keep her close...

Linnea's Arrangement really pulled together the rest of the series for me. All three of the stories worked together to produce an ending that both satisfied and felt complete. To a great extent it was definitely an easy Happily Ever After, though there were a few parts where I did wonder how that would happen.

It was good to have an intelligent female lead who knew that she was intelligent (even if she was held back) and insisted on being recognised as so by men in the same area. It may have taken Sam a while to fully accept Linnea's capabilities, but actually once he did I loved seeing the two of them working together as a team intellectually.

The chemistry between Sam and Linnea was strong, there was no denying that. And the sex scenes between them were particularly steamy. The two of them worked well together and didn't seem to have any of the angst that occurred with Cecillia in the previous book (making each story unique).

This has been a great series, highly enjoyable!
