This is the sequel to the alien romance story "Brianna" that first introduced us to the planet of Draken and their very relaxed attitude about sex. The Alalakan family is gathering together to celebrate their daughter Sheala's 18th birthday. A day when she can celebrate the start of her long awaited sex life, something her family hireed a sex instructor to prepare her for. Needless to say Draken's are not shy about anything that has to do with sex.

Sheala's family are important people who own space ships and are involved in the import and export of goods all over the galaxy. In their line of work they have become close friends with people of other planets such as the Gattan's. A planet made up of people who resemble different wild felines.

Marljas is a sexy lion type man who falls hard for Sheala and she falls for him wanting him for her very first sexual partner. He wants her for his wife, the Gattans being a much more conservative people.

Following a hot night of passion everything appears to be going well until Sheala is kidnapped by an evil scientist out to hurt Sheala's family because her brother denied him a specimen he wanted to preform sex experiments on. Unfortunately the specimen was Brianna the earthling wife of Sheala's brother.

I do not want to spoil the story so I will not say what happens during her kidnapping other than to say it leaves her unsure and afraid where before she was filled with confidence.

Marljas rescues her and they marry. He takes her to his planet where a very spoiled royal brat awaits wanting him for herself. A Gattan female is rescued at the same time as Sheala and she returns to Gattan with Marljas and Sheala. She was kidnapped a year ago and was sexually tortured the entire time.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book much more than the first of this series which gives me hope that this series will continue to grow and improve. However, there were things that bothered me. I still don't understand this worship of Brianna but since she wasn't in much of this book the female power issue wasn't as overwhelming as it was previously and I was able to actually learn about other characters, especially the men, (finally) better,not by much but still much better than the previous book.

I'm also unsure if the issue of rape was really addressed properly and my doubts at how realistically this was portrayed also took away from the story. But what bothered me the most was that after it was mentioned that Sheala was pregnant and it might be from her rapist the baby was never mentioned again, Sheala was never even told about the baby's existence which was just odd.

Still some of the characters were interesting, like Sosha and her brother, I even found myself liking Cadan when it became clear just how loyal he was to the queen and how bitter he was towards certain other characters in the book, I wish this had been addressed more but perhaps its better not having been. Overall this book was enjoyable as long as your able to suspend reality and aren't bothered by stereotypes and overwhelming female power, I'm female but when reading this and the previous book I just found myself distracted and annoyed wondering why these females needed to keep emphasizing how much better they are then men and how they must humor the men their little whims.Thankfully this was more subtle in this book than the previous but I have a feeling when Ban reaches Earth and meets his woman it'll be Briana all over again.

Format: Paperback
Sheala is enthralled by the compelling Gattan lion man, MarljasDrefeson, who has just arrived on her planet. She is mesmerized by his rich, golden hair, broad chest and layered muscles. Itching to touch and stroke Marljas, Sheala is soon questioning her vow to remain a virgin. Being a virgin on the hedonistic planet Drakia is a feat in itself. Add the leonine Gattan to the equation, and Sheala is awash in sensation, and quickly wondering why she ever made that vow in the first place. With only a few weeks to go until her birthday, Sheala is soon making plans for Marljas to beher first lover.

Marljas Drefeson has a difficult time letting his guard down on the alien planet of Drakia. After all, this is the home of his enemies. He never should have agreed to come with his brother's family to try and form trade agreements with this neighboring planet. Marljas is much more comfortable with war; and the Gattanare a warring society.

Grudgingly agreeing that peace must reign, Marljas tries to shake off his automatic defenses and attempts to unwind. The rules of society are completely different from his home planet, and he is somewhat shocked at the lack of reserve on Drakia. This, however, does not stop him from reacting when the lovely Sheala is near. In Gattan society, Marljas
could be killed for touching Sheala, but in the Drakian world, the rules are much looser. Marljas tries to deny his attraction to the beautiful Drakian, but soon realizes the futility of his attempt.

In one of their cat and mouse exchanges, Sheala nicks Marljas' neck with her knife. In Marljas' eyes, she has blooded him, and consequently stated her intent to mate him.
