The Delight

An alien mail order bride service becomes the next setting for a reality TV show, but somewhere between secrets and lies, unexpected attraction leads to love.  I had a great time with Alien Mates so I was glad the author was writing a series and Torq’s fun brother, Darq, was next in line to get a sassy earth woman.


Alien Attraction is book two and would be enjoyed better in order, but the reader could get away with it out of order or standalone.

Fast, fun, and light, this next book in the series was another hit with me.  At first, I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it as much as the first book because I don’t really care for the main characters lying to each other or setting out from the beginning to have a relationship built on a lie.  That said, I went ahead because I’ve enjoyed several of the author’s books and trust her to give me a good romance.  And, it was not long before I was totally rooting for both heroine and hero because the circumstances were somewhat complicated and their feelings were in the right place from the beginning.

But oh the fun…
The lies are hanging over them and the clock is ticking on when the truth comes out.  More complications than they expected  occur when it does, but at least they are in a good spot and have each other’s backs.

Like with the first book, there are some good humor moments and some good sizzle.  They are attracted right away, but end up taking it slower and getting a better read on each other beyond the attraction.  It was great to get a peek in with Torq and Star and a few of the others from the previous story as well as meet the heroine and, maybe, the hero for book three.  Oh boy won’t that be an interesting match up.

For those who want a fast and easy sci-fi romance with engaging characters, a bit of steam, and some action, I would recommend giving this series a try.

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

LOL! There is so much heart and humor in this that it was an easy sell. 🙂 Thanks, Cara!

Oh nice. I would have also worried about the lying but it looks like it all works out. Okay, now I’m curious.

Yep, it was all to the good, Melissa. This one is barely released and I’m already greedy for her sister’s story. I hope her match is the one I think it is. Oh my… 🙂

I haven’t read an paranormal (alien) book in forever. I love alien and angel paranormal. I will have to give this one a shot. Great review!

I have this one, but I haven’t read it yet. It is on my list while I’m on vacation. Glad to see this looks as fun as the first one.

This is perfect for light and fun vacation reading, Melanie! I just saw in her newsletter that book three is coming out in July and it is the couple I thought it would be when I finished this one so I’m excited about that. 🙂
