Ally is a whore. And not by choice (can't think many have this as their top career wish). After earth was decimated by aliens, she's been sold over and over and frankly, been a piss poor investment. She's disobedient and deadly on occasion. The woman she bonded in sisterhood with, Eva, was stolen from her side years ago and she quit looking. But Eva didn't give up and Ally has been found. The problem is convincing her it's real.
I've enjoyed this series from the start, but seriously, the human race better hope we never get invaded. Life is miserably bleak if we do. Humans are treated callously and bought and sold. And the children. That just gave me the heebie jeebies. If a species has evolved to space travel, is it too much to ask that they not enslave other beings? I cheered for Ally every time she rebelled and cringed when she was punished for it. When Kiehle shows up to save her, she's understandably doubtful. And Kiehle is not the brightest bulb in how he tries to convince her. Oh well, without these problems we wouldn't have a story.
As expected, the sex was steamy and plentiful but the romance was a little off for me. I didn't feel the slow build and change of feelings needed to go from fear and apprehension to soul mate. The book was really dark in some places, so be warned. A must if you've read the previous books in the series. There were appearances by all the characters from the previous books and tidbits about how their lives are progressing. The book ended with an epilogue, my personal favorite.
Being kidnapped by a deadly—and dead sexy—brothel slave wasn’t exactly what Kiehle Xochis signed up for. His instructions had been simple: Watch over the human female until his brother and his mate arrived to rescue her. Instead, the slave has decided to liberate herself. She’s proving to be more than Kiehle can handle—and he kind of likes it.
Allysan Miller has gone through hell since being taken from Earth during an invasion. She’s finally found a way to escape the latest, and worst, of the brothels she’s been sold to. Now if Ally plays her cards right, she could gain both freedom and love…if she can learn to trust the dangerous male she’s chosen as her hostage.
Inside Scoop: Ally suffers her share of abuse at the hands of a brothel owner’s guards. But don’t worry. The feisty female warrior gives as good as she gets.
