Dark Taste of Rapture is the sixth book in the Alien Huntress series. The book takes place about a year before the fifth book; Ecstasy in Darkness. I'd say it's very important for you to read the other books in this series before reading this one. While each book focuses on a separate couple the world that is in the books is built upon more and more with each book. So if you don't start with the first one you'd have a lot of questions.
This book is different than most romance books and is a refreshing journey. Our heroine Noelle goes after our hero Hector. She is the one more secure in her sexuality. In their romance while there is instant attraction the feelings of love develop throughout the course of the book. In most romance books it seems that the love happens instantly and for no reason. Dark Taste of Rapture has great action in it when Hector and Noelle are working, and there are some scenes with favorite characters from throughout the series.
