"Deception and DNA Do the Twist"

Brilliant geneticist Andrea Raynier is abducted and thrust into the middle of a raging intergalactic war, with her research abilities in hot demand. The Protarians' combination of conventional and bio warfare has decimated the Stilox home planet, and infected the population with a deadly mutating virus. Domineering Commander Mal Ton Adoha and the more subtle (but just as determined) Dr. Roark Talbot join forces to persuade Andrea to use her research to cure the virus that is wreaking havoc among their people, and they're willing to do whatever it takes to win her cooperation. But will they end up caught in their own snare, and can love grow in the midst of death and deception?

Full of intergalactic espionage, deadly viruses, alpha heroes, and a spunky research scientist heroine, Seducer is a flash-bang start to a promising new storyline from Aubrey Ross. Though the erotic element is strong (the story opens in the middle of a sexual encounter), Ms. Ross also creates a complex, high-action story filled with secret formulas, double-agents, and underground revolutionaries. It's almost too much content for the 125 page story; near the end, I had to pause to make sure which faction I was trying to follow. This might have been better suited to a longer novel format, to allow for more secondary character development and understanding of the Protarian/ Stilox conflict. Still, the story held my interest, and I get the idea there is plenty more intrigue waiting to unfold in subsequent installments of this series. Be warned, though— this is definitely erotic romance, emphasis on the erotic. The sex starts early and happens often, between various characters and for varied reasons. There is also coercion and deception involved in the main relationship, which is, for the majority of the book, a ménage.

Aubrey Ross has crafted an ultra-steamy, fast-paced adventure, with room for more stories to follow this, the first of her Sensual Captivity series. Fans of high-octane, erotic sci-fi romance will not be disappointed.

Sensual Captivity, Book One.

Determined to save his people from a debilitating mutation, Mal Ton abducts a gifted geneticist and brings her to his war-torn world. Andrea wakes up naked and in the arms of a handsome doctor who claims to be Mal Ton's captive as well. Roark charms and seduces her while Mal Ton overwhelms her senses, awakening needs she didn't realize she possessed.

Roark's smoldering intensity is even more intoxicating than Mal Ton's blatant sexuality. Slipping beneath her emotional defenses, Roark unleashes her passionate nature and makes her long for the soul-deep connection she gave up on long ago. She wants to believe they've found a bond more meaningful than lust, but how can she trust her captors? Now her sensuality is pitted against her intellect and the fate of two worlds hangs in the balance.
