In the Krinar Diplomacy, we meet Jarek, a Counselor to Ambassador Arus, and Charlotte Hughes of the State Department in Washington, DC. She was the daughter of Diplomatic parents who was killed by a group of terrorist when she was a child. When Jarek wants her views on the invasion and how to best bring about peace, she is shocked but honored. “The best I could muster was primal instincts—be strong, have courage, don’t give up, hold onto hope.” To be told that he found her committed and her perspective valuable, gives her the courage to proceed.
The story takes place not long after the invasion of Krinar on earth, and there is pandemonium around the world. Charlotte is called into work at the State Department, but near the Krinar Embassy, she will be injured by rioting humans and rescued by Jaret. This will be the beginning of their relationship that quickly escalates. There is a great physical and sexual chemistry between the two of them as if time and space had destined them to be together.
“He lit me up, turned me on, made me ache and then he’d walked away. Was that some Krinar thing? Torture the earth girl? Or was it possible that he’d been as surprised as I was? “We were on opposite sides of a literally interstellar divide.”
Together, with the encouragement of the State Department’s Director Loomis, Charlotte will become part of a worldwide endeavor to convince the people of earth that the people are Krinar were not a danger to them. The Krinar may hold the winning hand, but they truly want peace. If those on earth chose something else, they would defend themselves, and in the end, the Krinar people are stronger.
“That went well. Jaret said.” “Did it? You just told them that everything they value—their careers, their status, their power—all of it can vanish in an instant if they don’t do what you want.” “You’re very good at getting your point across. I’ve never seen a roomful of powerful people so smacked in the face by reality.”
The relationship between Jarek and Charlotte have many heart-to-heart honest conversations. Both are fascinated with each others culture and customs. When they become intimate it is more than just sex, it is the beginning of a journey towards their future.
“Generally speaking, sex is a natural part of life for us—fun, recreational but nothing more serious than that unless it takes place within the context of a committed relationship.”
“My alien lover had stripped me of all defenses. I truly was his to do with as he chose. That realization should have been terrifying. Instead, all I could manage was a faint flicker of surprise at how utterly right it felt.”
“We had come so far so quickly yet all I could think of was the journey together that stretched out before us. A journey of two people and two worlds into a future that would take us all farther than we could ever have imagined.”
Oh, if only we all could've been blessed with a mom or a grandmother as bad*ss as Josie to teach us important life lessons!! (I'd take Helen Mirren as well.)
With Krinar Diplomacy, Josie delivers a smart, well-written, smexy story that showcases her writing skill, her knack for humor and story structure, and her ability to quickly engage readers with an intelligent, well-crafted story line. While there's a good deal of heat, this is more of a lighthearted romance, as is fitting for a shorter read.
Nailed it, Josie!
