Overview

Horrific torture in an alien prison torpedoed Captain Ari Idylle's military career. Stripped of command and banished to her father's scientific expedition to finish a PhD she doesn't want, Ari refuses to fly a desk. She intends to have her command back by any means possible, until pirates commandeer her father's ship, and she's once again a prisoner. Perhaps this cunning captor isn't what he pretends to be.

As far as Cullin Seaghdh is concerned, the same goes for Ari. Her past association with aliens puts her dead center in Cullin's cross-hairs. If she hasn't been brainwashed and returned as a spy, then she must be part of a traitorous alliance endangering billions of lives. He can't afford the desire she fires within him. His mission comes first. He'll stop at nothing, including her destruction, to uncover her true purpose and protect what is his.

Enemy Within is a Science Fiction Romance story by Marcella Burnard which tells the story of Captain Alexandria Rose Idylle otherwise known as Ari. Here is the blurb.After a stint in an alien prison, Captain Ari Rose wonders why she even bothered to survive. Stripped of her command and banished to her father's scientific expedition to finish a Ph.D. she doesn't want, Ari never planned to languish quietly behind a desk. She wasn't built for it, either. But when pirates commandeer her father's ship, Ari once again becomes a prisoner. As far as pirate leader Cullin is concerned, Ari's past imprisonment puts her dead centre in Cullin's sights. If she hasn't been brainwashed and returned as a spy, then he's convinced she must be part of a traitorous alliance endangering billions of lives. Cullin can't afford the desire she fires within him and he'll stop at nothing, including destroying her, to uncover the truth.If you know me or you have read any of my reviews before you will know that I am not one for lots of romance in a book. Well this book had the typical romantic story of kidnapped girl falling for her kidnapper, not something that really floats my boat but I have to say I really enjoyed it to the point where I couldn¿t put it down. I must be getting mushy in my old age or I've spent too much time reading dark gritty books. I was concerned I wouldn't like it at the beginning of the book. I found the pirate Cullin Seaghdh to be quite chauvinistic, Ari played the little lady, they fell for each other very quickly and the author wrote lines such as.Anticipation sizzled through him, settling low in his belly. Cursing the tightening in his groin, he shifted and pushed the feeling away. This really isn¿t the kind of stuff I enjoy reading but I stuck with it and I¿m glad I did as it improved no end. Once I got into the book we soon had a nice plot going, yes some of it was see through and we knew how it would all turn out but some of it was unexpected too. The Sci Fi was quite light but I loved it when we finally meet the Aliens and the events that ensue. Hicci the Alien held Ari prisoner was fantastic a real evil character. I liked Ari and Cullin they did annoy me at times hiding their feelings for each other and such but in general I enjoyed them. OK so it might appear from this review that I wasn¿t that keen on the book but that isn¿t the case and I would like to give Enemy Within 4 stars out of 5. If you like Romance with a bit of Sci Fi I recommend you check this book out.
