Overview

Set Phasers To Sizzle. . .

Special agent Roan Hendrix is a straight shooter with weapons and women, so he doesn't appreciate it when his boss throws him a curve. But what a curve. A half-human, half-Nerakian who needs a one-on-one crash course in how best to channel her powers. And while Roan's usually a master at separating business from pleasure, one glance into Lyraka's green eyes is enough to spark scorching fantasies of seriously close encounters with the tall, tanned temptress. . .

Lyraka's trying not to mind the way Mister Macho Special Agent keeps barking orders, but it's impossible to ignore Roan's rough-and-ready appeal. The sensitive ponytail guys Lyraka grew up with didn't have a clue how to handle her outsized sex drive, but Roan looks like he'd be up to the task in every way. Better still, he never got the memo that Lyraka's human side makes her--ahem--"special talents" even greater than the average Nerakian's.. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kelley (My Favorite Phantom) whips up a frothy, competent paranormal romance. Special agent Roan Hendrix is training other agents while recovering from an injury. He doesn’t like the alien Nerakians, but if he agrees to train gorgeous young half-Nerakian Lyraka, he can go back on active duty. Their mutual dislike swiftly turns to attraction, but Lyraka resists, worried that her superpowered Nerakian sex drive will lead her to injure Roan. Danger enters with vain Prince Banyon of Rovertia, who loves torturing women and wants revenge on Lyraka’s mother for resisting him and marring his beauty with a scar. When Lyraka is captured, Roan and a team of similarly sexy agents must go to dangerous Rovertia to rescue her. Though characters and plot are predictable, the sex is steamy and the pacing gallops along in this readable romp. (Dec.)

The book is fairly well written and is very easy to read. The main storyline is about a female alien being trained as a spy on Earth. During the training she and the person responsible for the training have sex and fall in love. Some of the story line is a little corny but as you read you will see the main characters are somewhat realistic in the emotions that the author has them express. I would recommend if you enjoy romance novels, but not if you are looking for good science fiction.

An enjoyable visit with another Nerakian women. Well, actually, Lyraka is half human and half Nerakan, but she hasn't been allowed to live in either world. She's tired of being alone and hopes that becoming a government agent with make her part of a family. Roan's attitude and traing techniques makes her wonder if she's made the right choice. Then, things turn hot!

Dating Outside Your DNA by Karen Kelley Fourth in the Planet Nerek series, Dating Outside Your DNA is a fast, sexy, fun read. Lyraka, is a half-human, half- Nerekian, with powers beyond the "normal" Nerekian. Tired of never fitting in, Lyraka dreams of being an interplanetary agent but she needs help. Roan Hendrix, special agent, injured in the line of duty, is given the job of training Lyraka, one-on-one, in exchange for a medical release so he can go back to work. Training can be rough, but especially so when both Lyraka and Roan are fighting the pull of sexual attraction every time they see each other, even if they don't like each other very much. To complicate matters the Nerekian's have a very high sex drive and she is afraid of the consequences if she and Roan were to get together. But with Roan yelling at her and pushing her so hard, she isn't really sure she wants him even if the sparks do fly every time they are together. Evil Prince Banyon of Rovertia has long held a grudge against Lyraka's family and now plans to exact his revenge. Can Roan and Lyraka work together to defeat the evil prince and can such two very different people overcome their differences to find true love? Tune into Karen Kelley's Planet Nerek series. You will be glad you did.

Dating Outside Your DNA by Karen Kelley is another delightful tale of laughter and sexy spice. Special Agent Roan Hendrix is a no nonsense type of guy. He wasn't too happy to be told by his boss to train a new recruit. This trainee is half human and half-Nerakian. That adds a whole new problem to deal with to say the least. Lyraka was tired of her solitary life and she wanted to prove she could belong anywhere. She is determined to excel at the training and no one is going to stand in her way. But Lyraka's Nerakian blood sends her hormones into overdrive with every meeting with Roan. Her training puts her with one on one contact with him. Lyraka soon realizes the attraction is not one sides and they give into their desires. But there are evil forces at work that want to harm Lyraka and her family. When Lyraka and Roan are taken their love and life are stretched to their limits. Dating Outside Your DNA is another gem from Karen Kelley. You can be sure to laugh out loud and sigh with contentment. Karen Kelley is a must buy author for me.

While recuperating from an on the job leg injury that keeps him from galactic field work, special agent Roan Hendrix trains tyro operatives. He detests having to work with Nerakians, but the stipulation for his return to space is mentoring half-Nerakian Lyraka. Deciding field work is more important than his detesting the aliens, he agrees. Lyraka hates humans so prefers not to be trained by one of them. However, if she wants field work she will accept Roan as her instructor which she does as becoming an operative means more to her than her destesting his species. Both are stunned when their animosity turns to attraction. However Lyraka fears her Nerakian sex drive will injure the soft himan she wants so decides to keep her libido in check, which drives Roan crazy with desire. Sadist Prince Banyon of Rovertia sees Lyraka as an opportunity to avenge the scar on his face that her mom etched on him when she said no. He abducts Lyraka leading to Roan and his unit giving chase to rescue her. This is a faster than the speed of light scicne fiction romance starring two beloved enemies and a nasty villain. The story line is straightforward with a projectory that is obvious, but no one will care as Roan returns to active duty to rescue the half human he loves. With a gender sexual twist as the female heroine fears her Nerakian sex drive will physiclaly overpower her loved one, fans will enjoy being lost in space in the Kelley uivorse (see CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF A SEXY KIND and The Bad Boys Guide To The Galaxy).

DATING OUTSIDE YOUR DNA is the fourth book in Karen Kelley's Nerek series which has introduced us to the Nerakian Planet. Roan Hendrix is a special agent in the inter-galaxy patrol, but has been sidelined for months with a leg injury. Wanting to get back into active service, he is thrown for a curve when his boss tells him that he must do one-on-one training for a new recruit before he can resume his duties. Roan figures it is a means to an end, but he certainly doesn't like it especially after seeing the recruit, which throws him for another curve. Lyraka is a half-human and half-Nerakian, with special powers who is anxious to become a special agent. This training is just a major step to attaining that goal. How is she to concentrate on training when Roan brings out other special skills she has that are only enhanced by her human side. Roan dislikes alien Nerakians, Lyraka is agitated with always having orders barked at her, but somewhere along the line the mutual dislike turns to more. When Prince Banyon of Rovertia threatens to cause a war, Lyraka must go in the field on her first mission. Roan fights her going but loses the battle. His worst fear is realized when Lyraka is captured by the Prince who's out to seek revenge on the agency for the past. In her trademark style Karen Kelley has crafted a story that has elements for every reader, from the humor to the steamy encounters of Roan and Lyraka and the fast paced heart pounding rescue attempt. Roan also gets a real wake up call when coming face to face with the realization that there is more to life than the agency and just what he has to lose. This is an enjoyable read I would recommend and look forward to future books by this author.
