"delightful police procedural romantic futuristic"
Once a Raka princess, Eden Black is one of the deadliest
Assassins on earth. She is assigned to kill EenLi, but the
target escapes and Eden is injured. To assist her, Eden,
already humiliated by her failure to accomplish the
mission, is outraged when she is assigned a partner and
making matters worse, a human male.
Her new partner Lucius Adaire finds it amusing that a
female assassin allegedly exists, but is assigned to work
with the beautiful golden skined alien. As a team they are
expected to infiltrate and end the human slave trade that
sends earthling to other planets. As they work this
impossible mission, Lucius and Eden are attracted to one
another. As the danger mounts, they begin to fall in love,
but first completing the assignment must be achieved before
they can explore their feelings.
This sequel to the delightful police procedural romantic
sci fi AWAKEN ME DARKLY is a terrific tale due to the
respective attitudes of the new teammates. Initially he
scoffs at a female doing his line of work and she ridicules
a human especially a male keeping up with her. As they work
the case together respect and admiration take root along
with their attraction which turns to love. The
investigation grips readers while Gena Showalter makes her
world filled with aliens seem genuine because of it. Fans
will appreciate this superb futuristic investigative tale.
