This is a thrilling and intriguing erotic sci-fi romance in the Universal Defiance series. Captain Harlow is a Subservient that still struggles with relating to humans, many of whom hate or fear her. A genetically engineered soldier, Parker is modified to be the strongest, brightest and fastest. With their attraction growing stronger and deeper, they will have to learn to handle it and work together to stop a political coup.
The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of suspense, action, drama and passion. The author brings her futuristic world to life with well written events and scenes that capture the imagination and a dangerous situation to spice things up. The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and draws the reader deeper into the story.
The attraction between Harlow and Parker radiates heat from every page and the sex scenes scorch the reader with red hot passion. Communication between the two however could use some help as neither knows how to handle their attraction especially during the tense situation they find themselves in.
While I think that the story could have been a better if it had been a little longer, I found the quick read to be enjoyable and entertaining with fascinating characters. I do recommend that the series be in sequential order in order to understand the political dynamics of the universe created by the author.
