I'm looking for a silly book, or story, I guess. There's a spaceship crash on a foreign planet, with a linguist who ends up marrying the alien rescuer and becomes ambassador between the alien world and her own world (or galaxy or group of planets). I think there's something about how she has to choose between honor and duty or whatever.
There is a crew of mostly men that she ends up needing protection from and is treated very poorly by, all except for one younger, more innocent man-child. I do remember the young man offered to become her temporary lover to keep her safe from the rest of the crew. She ended up twisting her ankle and having to rest, none of the crew members offered to help. She had to relieve herself and was afraid to do so because she was afraid the crew would rape her or otherwise abuse her. The alien leader of the mission has to rescue the crew and provide protection for the woman. It ends up that her rescue means that she has to marry one of the aliens (specifically her primary rescuer). Since she's a linguist, she's asked to act in the capacity of ambassador or something. But she has to choose to either betray her husband and his planet or her own - duty over honor or duty over love? Anyway, she is kidnapped, sent off somewhere or almost killed, and returns to him.
I don't remember when it was written but I know I read it sometime during 2013. Unfortunately, I'd had surgery and was on pain meds at the time, so I honestly don't remember the title or cover art. I only read it because it seemed better than most smut and had a more "off-the-wall" title. It didn't seem to focus on "love" so much as actually integrating into an alien culture and having to learn to make her way. But then again, I was on pain meds and only remember bits & pieces of the story. I don't remember any of the characters' names.
Sorry, it's just been bugging me for the last several months, since I'm on bedrest due to degenerative stuff going on in my back. I'm trying to find the books I seemed to enjoy or want to read again now that I'm limiting my pain meds intake.
