*Starred Review* Eden Black is a Raka, a race of aliens hunted for their beautiful golden skin and hair, but she was raised by a human, Michael, who heads a secret organization dedicated to assassinating evil extraterrestrials. Eden is one of his top assassins. After the most nefarious of the slavers nearly kills her, Michael assigns Eden a partner, Lucius Adaire, a lean, mean killing machine. Eden knows she is good at what she does and resents his interference. To find out how the murderous slaver slips between worlds, Eden decides to let herself be captured and sold at one of his bidding parties. Brave, sassy, and resourceful, a la Lara Croft, Eden is willing to risk her life to secure freedom for others. Lucius respects Eden's independence and skill but hates to see her putting herself in harm's way. Showalter first demonstrated her skill at blending sizzling romance and nail-biting suspense set in a convincing futuristic society in Awaken Me Darkly (2005). She now continues the roller-coaster-like adventure in an equally entertaining tale that will please a wide cross section of readers. Shelley Mosley

The enemies-to-lovers theme is strong with these too, haha! The hero is a total jerk, at the beginning, but the heroine isn't a damsel in distress either. Yay!
In a world where aliens are living on our planet, many things can go wrong. And that's why someone has to make sure to punish the bad guys.
Enter Eden Black, who's out to get a notorious alien that auctions off humans and aliens as slaves, to the highest bidder.
Enter Lucius - oh boy, newest partner to Eden after Eden sort of messed up. Not really her fault, if you ask me.
The back-and-forth between these two was well-done, some may say it was insta-love but really, that is something I accept in PNR. Seems more plausible there.
But all of that aside, I loved how they finally decided to work together and the ending was good. Yummy Lucius!
Gena Showalter can sure write 'em!
That being said....
I just started reading this series after reading all of the published books in the Lords of the Underworld series. Which I absolutely loved!! I started the Alien Huntress series with Enslave me Sweetly which I normally wouldn't do but the first book did not interest me. I did not feel like I was missing anything from the first book thta was pertinent to the second book. Which is definitely a plus to a series. I enjoy reading all books in a series in order but if on occasion I decided to skip one, I am grateful that Showalter allows her readers to somewhat jump in to the story line at any point and enjoy a well written action packed book.
I love a strong heroine and Eden was definitely the epitome of strong. Lucius was also a strong character and that is differnt from a lot of romance books. They each give each other a run for their money the whole book. They are brutally honest, and don't play the "I'm going to keep everything I feel inside and then have a huge misunderstanding that leads to a fight and then we will get back together later" game. This is what made this book great. I also commend Showalter for writing in first person but still allowing us to understand what the other characters are feeling/thinking. That is talented writing.
I can already tell this series is going to have a lot of different character types strong, weak, brutal, kind, but thats what makes her series so great she changes things up. This series may be far fetched but she finds a way to make interactions with aliens and humans romantic, exciting and completely normal every day events.
