Ex-Chicago detective LILLY D’ANGELO has a secret she doesn’t share with anyone. A master of the one night stand, she’s given up ever finding a soul mate and thrown herself head first into her career. That is, until she captures the wrong alien. Kidnapped and sold into the sex slave trade, she’s shipped into deep space. Barely escaping with her life, Lilly now travels the galaxy working as a bounty hunter using her secret talents to bring down criminals and seeking revenge on the one male who ruined her life.
Agent DALLAS SAWYER works for deep space’s version of the FBI. After a disastrous mission that left several of his team members murdered, a president executed, and Dallas near death, he’s determined to take down the assassin targeting government officials. When a sexy human female gets between him and his goal, Dallas and his alien partner find themselves on the receiving end of a passionate night they won’t soon forget and a proposition that may very well blow up in their faces.
Because in deep space … true love can happen with just a touch.
This is definitely a very HOT erotic romance. It also has a good story that was delivered well. On top of the good ménage smex there’s action, mystery, and insight into the emotions and motivations of the characters.
Lilly has a special ability that she sees as her personal albatross. It has caused a lot of trouble in her life; the least of which was the kidnapping and attempted smex slave incident. She has come to terms with the fact that she’ll be alone forever with one night stands here and there. What she doesn’t expect is to run into Dallas and Thaegan. Lilly is drawn to Dallas and he is able to resist her and get past her shields to the vulnerable woman inside. In return Lilly helps Dallas come to terms with a traumatic event and loss in his past. I really like Dallas; it took me a bit to warm up to Thaegan.
The one thing that bothered me was the need for the glossary. I went back and forth too much in the first chapter. The terms could have been handled within the story and it would have been much less distracting.
