We are back in the world of the Garathians and their quest for mates. We've met Shelley in previous books, but the author went deeper into her character than I've encountered in the past. The same goes with her romantic counterparts Cecine and Hastion. As a result, this book is much longer than its predecessors. Perhaps a little too long? Anyway, I loved the continuation of the story arcs of previous books in the series as well as the evolution of Shelley, Cecine and Hastion.
I felt sorry for Shelley in the previous books and that feeling compounded exponentially. Cecine was not a favorite of mine until the end, but we learn about why he is as he is and his reasons for his facade of indifference. Hastion is a keeper in all ways and is the glue that holds everything together. He's a bridge of sorts between Cecine and Shelley but has difficulty coming to terms with his role at times. I loved the biological and technological wonders the author presented as every day items for the Garathani. I was totally taken by surprise by the climax of the story and kudos to the author for that; so didn't see it coming. A good addition to the series but a lot darker than the previous books.
What's better than one hot alien at your service? Two hot aliens in your bed.
After four months of orbiting Earth in a spaceship bursting with sex-starved aliens, nurse Shelley Bonham will do just about anything to get off. The ship, that is.
Not that the aliens aren't hot enough to put her hormones on red alert. In fact, the more time she spends with the Garathani leader Cecine and his personal guard Hastion, the more she wants them. Knowing what Cecine and Hastion are doing to each other when nobody's looking only makes it harder to keep her hands to herself.
But she's already been betrayed by one alien--her dead douchebag of a husband. Can she trust her future--and her children--to another?
Warning: Contains the usual Robin L. Rotham smorgasbord of m/m/f menage and D/s elements, plus a shipload of alien alphas in outer space.
