Inarrii agent Alinna Gaerrii was tasked with observing the Starforce base on Earth. Crash landing her observation pod onto the base was not part of her mission briefing. Neither was making m'ittar--mind contact--with Major David Brown, the human who discovered her amongst the wreckage. David thinks she's a psychologist sent to evaluate his Special Forces team, and Alinna goes along with his misconception, seizing the opportunity to observe humans up close. But their daily contact has unexpected side effects, and Alinna soon invades David's dreams. Through their intimate mental connection she allows him to express his forbidden physical desires. Alinna delights in the sensory exploration and grows excited by the prospect of a treaty with the humans and a potential life mate in David. But an attack from an unknown ship sends the base into chaos, and Alinna may be forced to reveal her lie, erasing all hope of a successful treaty, and driving David away forever...My Thoughts: As I have a tendency to do, I read these books out of order. I loved book 2 and I'll admit that I went into this one with some pretty lofty expectations. I'm pleased to say that I wasn't let down at all. *steeples fingers* Most excellent.
I love the physical characteristics that Lilly Cain has given her aliens. Between the mind-talking and the sexy nerves, these aliens have some serious sexing going on. I also loved that Alinna is waaaaay out of her league when she accidentally falls into David's hands. She can't lie worth a damn and she's so stressed out that she's instinctively reaching out mentally to calm herself. It worked. On so many levels. She needs lovin' to calm herself down and he has a need to dominate in the bedroom. Perfection.
Simply put, this series is fun. The Inarrii are an honorable race who are trying to establish first contact and the humans are clueless about what dangers they could be facing with some of the other races. The sex is pretty darn hot and I get my alien/human coupling. Which is something I've been enjoying far too much lately.
