I read this book a while back, then gave it to someone to read, and it was never returned; I have been looking for it ever since. Below is the plotline. If anyone can give me the name of the book and its writer's name, I would be really glad.
A distant world humanoid space warrior pilot, who has an augmented cerebral connection with his spaceship that is AI-based, crash lands on Earth. He meets the central character, the Girl (I forgot her name). They fall in love and he decide to take her as his bride-to-be. They travel back to his galaxy, where it turns out the pilot is a prince and they stumble into galactic politics.
