RIDDING THE WORLD OF EVIL, ONE ALIEN AT A TIME: THAT'S MIA SNOW'S MISSION.
Snow is in the forecast.
In a time and place not too far away, Mia Snow is an alien huntress for the New Chicago Police Department. Heading up her expert team of Alien Investigation and Removal agents, Mia's unmatched at battling the elusive enemy among us, and she's the perfect girl for the job. She's seen her brother die at the hands of aliens. She's earned each of her scars. And she'll die before she cries. Now, a series of killings have Mia and her partner Dallas tracking alien suspects -- but a sudden blast of violence leaves Dallas fighting for his life.
They are ice and fire.
The chance to save Dallas appears in the form of a tall, erotic stranger. An alien. A murder suspect. Kyrin en Arr, of the deadly Arcadian species, holds the power to heal the injured agent but not without a price. For Mia Snow, that price is surrendering to Kyrin's forbidden seduction...and embracing their electric attraction. She's walking a knife's edge, risking her badge and even her life. The closer she gets to Kyrin, the more Mia learns about her own heart, her human needs -- and the shocking secret that will shatter everything she's ever believed.
Five Boundless Stars
Oh this book was so good! I honestly don't know what took me so long to discover this series. I am already a huge fan of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series. I love a kick ass heroin and aliens, hello this is so my type of book! I received an email from Audible offering the first books in series for $4.95. Awaken Me Darkly was on that list so I jumped on it. I'm so glad I did. Justine made Mia come to life for me! She did such a fantastic job in her narration I felt like I was there! Mia is such a bad ass chic, with a sarcastic wit and a quick tongue. I LOVED her! I love when I can sit and read/listen about a woman who isn't waiting for a man to save her. Mia is strong and independent, yet still vulnerable and a woman. I don't want to give anything away but wow there are some surprises in store. I can not wait to start on the next novel in the series, Enslave Me Sweetly.
