Intimate Invasion, Book Two
This series is an independent spinoff of the Crimson Carousel series.
Rhys' abuse as a Setti captive has left him emotionally distant from the conflict raging around him. The last time he trusted a woman, he ended up in a breeding pen on the Setti homeworld.
Frustrated by his son's determination to keep himself isolated, Xenos sends temptation personified into Rhys' path. Adara Kinson has proven her allegiance to the Resistance despite her Setti blood. Xenos challenges Adara to find a way beyond Rhys' reserve and to rekindle the passionate soul Rhys has buried beneath a mountain of responsibility.
Adara thinks of Rhys with fondness and affection. He was gallant during a horrible ordeal and she will always be grateful. She isn't opposed to flirting with Rhys. He is by far the most attractive man she's ever met. But her Setti abilities have filled her mind with images of another man, a dark, sometimes frightening being, tormented and alone.
Reader Advisory: Dark and light. How is a woman to choose? Why should she when she can have both in a night of decadence whereby the focus of two very different men is solely on her.
