Overview

Love can get you killed.

Security contractor Lily Rowan is clawing her way back to normalcy after a training mission gone horrifically wrong left her physically and emotionally broken. She's returned to the city she grew up in, but not to hide from her nightmares, to face them. Living alongside the Ormney--genetically altered refugees who've settled in The Zone--is a daily reminder of the Ormney trainee who nearly took her life. Lily knew it would be tough, but she couldn't have known coming home would drop her straight into a madman's deadly game.

Someone is drugging Ormney men and turning them into mindless killers, reenacting the attack Lily barely survived. To stop the killing spree and put her own demons behind her, Lily must overcome her fear and work with Jolaj, a refugee Law Keeper with dangerous secrets and hidden motives of his own.

Jolaj long ago dedicated his life to his people, risking everything to find them a new home. But working with Lily could prove to be the most difficult task he's ever faced. Despite the Council's decree making relationships with the outsiders forbidden, he's finding it hard to keep the courageous Lily at a distance.

With the fragile peace between their people on the line, Lily and Jolaj must stop the horrific crimes before their growing attraction makes them the killer's next targets.

In the near future, the world is forever altered when the existence of the Ormney is made known. But two things remain the same--serial killers still walk among us and murder is still as ugly and terrifying as ever.

She grew up in Florida where a huge fallen oak tree in the swampy woods near her home served as her very own Star Ship Enterprise. Luckily the alligators were almost never a problem on her spaceship as the flight-deck was several feet above the muddy ground. She did lose a few tennis shoes on away missions, though. Today, Charlee is a multi award winning author of sexy, intense, romantic adventure and suspense. She still lives in Florida across the street from a miniature version of the swamp she lived by as a child.

Suit up, we are heading across time to a future where Inter-planetary travel is possible, but it would seem that prejudice and hate can still be just as barbaric and twisted as any time in history. Genetically altered to be warriors and feared, the Ormney are looking for a safe haven to live in peace. What they have is a place called The Zone and a world full of people who offer friendship on one hand while keeping their fingers crossed behind their backs. Now they are being targeted for extermination with drugs that cause them to lose control and become murdering machines. Lily Rowan knows all about the Ormney as a security contractor and saw firsthand their power when a training mission went wrong and she was almost killed by one. Now someone is out to bring her nightmares back to life and her greatest ally is one of “them.” Alongside one of their most influential peacemakers and spokesmen, Jojaj, she faces more than mortal danger in finding whoever is responsible; her heart refuses to acknowledge the fear her brain still feels. In a deadly game of cat and mouse, they are only one step behind and that trail is covered in blood and madness. Deadly Lover is another dark and deadly tale that includes all of the best elements of great science fiction reading by Charlee Allden. Crafting a world filled with darkness, fear and laws meant to keep different races apart, Ms. Allden subtly tackles social issues while creating a fast-paced romantic thriller where blood and gore is no stranger to her scenes as she takes one heroine who has been emotionally damaged and one powerful alien together in a no holds barred hunt for justice and truth. From warm familial ties to dark memories to illegal love, this is an emotional non-stop journey all the way! Again, she crosses genres with ease, as she introduces her version of romantic suspense and deadly love as trust becomes the only way to survival. I received this copy from Charlee Allden in exchange for my honest review.
