This book is set in the same universe as Spice 'n' Solace. I enjoyed Spice 'n' Solace a lot and am glad KC returned to the universe with Alien 'n' Outlaw. It had a lot of humor in the storyline, which made for an enjoyable read. The interaction between R'Kos and Darien was hot and intense and very well written. This book added to the universe with more on the Ankylos and adding to the human worlds as well. I hope KC keeps writing here with more good stories. I recommend this one as well as Spice 'n' Solace.
