    Sexy and Exciting Sci-Fi Story

    As the second book in The Confederacy Treaty series, the action picks up seamlessly from the previous installment with humans and the Inarri still trying to forge a contract before a dangerous alien force comes to wipe out the Earth. Political intrigue abounds as there's a traitor trying to derail the treaty talks with their identity being well hidden.

    We were introduced to Captain Susan Branscombe in the previous book and saw a woman with strength and an abrasive and untrusting attitude. In The Naked Truth, Susan's been put through some of the most awful things imaginable after being taken by terrorists. The glimpses we see of her being tortured are intense and I felt that there were even more heinous acts done to her merely alluded to by the author. It's made her doubt herself and her actions and it's left her career in jeopardy.

    To prove her guilt or innocence Asler Kiis is assigned to sort through her memories which puts them in extremely close contact. The Inarri are a very sexual society and to discover another's hidden thoughts and feelings requires a lot of touching and skin to skin interactions. They also have no shame when it comes to nudity in public. When you take all that into account, it's no wonder Susan and Asler end up steaming up the pages as they unravel the truth about what happened to her.

    Their sexual interactions are intense and nicely spaced throughout the story. Not only do they connect on a physical level but also a mental level which adds to the intimacy of their time together. He brings a calming influence to her pent up feelings and would do anything to see her safe, even throwing away his own career.

    The action sequences are exciting and pulse-pounding and totally drew me in from page one. The technological advances are intriguing and add a sense of wondrousness to what the Inarri promise the inhabitants of planet Earth. Many of the secondary characters are also curiously intriguing and I can see many possibilities for more stories in the future and sincerely hope Ms. Cain has plans to keep the series going for a long time to come.

    The first book in this series is Alien Revealed. This book is

    The first book in this series is Alien Revealed. This book is not as overtly sensuous, not that it’s not sensuous it’s more subtle. Once again the Inarrii are present. They are involved in making a treaty with the Earth. During the treaty process, the ship they are meeting on is attacked, while it is defeated it is determined that a Starforce Marines officer is on board. To determine if she committed treason she is examined by the Inarrii examiner, who is skilled in mind speak examinations. Captain Susan Branscombe has many physical and mental injuries from her capture and torture.

    The Inarrii heal her body, and during her time on the ship her mental scars begin to heal. As she heals and works with Asler, the Inarrii Examiner, they begin to fall in love. For the first time in her life, Susan feels protected and safe but will forces in Starforce Marines tear them apart for good

    The book is tender, sexy, and seriously hot. I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds and a chili pepper rating of 7. And, really, if you meet any Inarrii men, call me. If we are going to have company in this wide universe, may they be hot, sexy, and skilled ‘:)

    This product or book may have been distributed for review; this in no way affects my opinions or reviews.

    I'm enjoying this series....

    My Review:

    I continue to really like this series. This is book #2 in the series and takes place just a few months after book #1 when first contact was made between humans and the Inarri. The two cultures are in the midst of working out a treaty, but that has been threatened when Sue is kidnapped and tortured and reveals the location of a base which is then attacked. She's accused of treason and everyone is trying to get to the bottom of exactly who the enemy is.

    The Inarri have a foolproof way of questioning suspects where there can be no subterfuge...only honesty and truth so they take over Sue's questioning. The method though requires a deep mental connection that is strengthened by how close the two people are physically. Obviously sex is the closest possible physical connection so it makes sense to use it for this kind of questioning. The Inarri accept that as a norm...the humans, not so much.

    Sue is in a bad place. She's been tortured and broken, but she has an incredibly strong will, although it is taking further beating by this trial. To now have everyone questioning her motives is just a further slap to who she is. Asler is an empath and he immediately senses her vulnerability and is drawn to it. His automatic reaction is to want to shelter, heal, and protect her. How can you not fall in love with a guy like that?

    He's an alien, but the only thing truly different about them is their mental abilities and the nerve endings they have on the outer layer of their skin which look like tribal tattoos. For men of this race, these actually harden and raise when they become sexually stimulated. Can you say hot?? I have a thing for tattoos and these are used for sexual stimulation. That. Is. So. Sexy.

    Overall I am really enjoying this series. The third book, Undercover Alliance, comes out at the end of the month and I can't wait!
