Synopsis (Goodreads):
Her beautiful mind was her own prison.

After betrayal and abuse destroyed Liena’s dreams of becoming a Psychic Operator, she warily accepts a temporary position on Khepri, the homeworld of the bioengineered Xian Warriors. With entire Warrior units getting mysteriously wiped out, she must help devise a critical antidote. But when a buck naked, sexy as sin, Xian Warrior walks into her lab, Liena's bone-deep fear of psychic contact, of touching another’s soul, doesn’t trigger with him.

The minute Raven sees Liena’s aura, he knows he has found the one. She’s broken, but he vows to fix her, and then claim her as his bonded mate. When she inadvertently sets them on the path to discovering, at long last, the human’s elusive third psychic ability, the need to mend her becomes urgent. As the strongest of her kind, she may be their only hope of saving an entire species on the verge of annihilation.

With time ticking and so many lives in the balance, will Liena overcome her trauma, or will her mind and the rescue mission descend into madness?
Thoughts on Raven: MAN, I like these warriors. They're dedicated to stopping the hive-like aliens from conquering other worlds. When they find their special someone, they're ALL IN. And they can shapeshift into some pretty badass creatures.

Considering the mental and psychic abuse Liena was put through, the fact she is the match for an alien who can touch her mind and soul seems like a pretty big hurdle. Raven is careful with her, though, and they make strides in helping her overcome her trauma. But alien invaders wait for no woman and Liena's gift makes her the only choice to head out and help a planet full of people who have no defenses against the oncoming horde.

Yeah, it's touch and go for a while, but Liena is strong and her connection to Raven makes her even stronger.

Did I mention Liena also unlocks the next ability the humans and Xian need to (hopefully) stop the horde altogether. You know, eventually. Once they get strong enough and tap enough psychics.

(And can we talk about Bane for a minute? I am SO curious about him. I want more. MOAR. So much more!)

Mind traps, a terribly vindictive species who does terribly vindictive things, auras, sexy times, and ...babies? Heh. I like alien babies. Especially ones that make big, intimidating men go all gooey.
