A Navaho Nation cop who happens to be a shaman clocks a speeding Coletti Warlord on her radar and suddenly CeeCee Tsosie finds herself on quite the alien adventure solving intergalactic crime and fighting off her pesky attraction to arrogant Jake Jones. This series brings the sizzle and the laughs with each new installment.
Arresting the Warlord is the twelfth entry in the Coletti Warlords series. It’s a series that is versatile in that it works best in order, but also there are places where a reader can jump in and do all right. This book is one of those place.
CeeCee is adopted by a Navaho Shaman when her mother is killed. She was five when it happened and has long sense learned to keep her Dragos family history secret while embracing her adopted father’s ways. She takes her work as a police officer seriously and can’t stand the arrogant way the Coletti used earth’s troubles to help themselves to their psychic women. Or, is it personal when Jake Jones gets under her skin and annoys her into giving away her psychic gifts during a routine traffic stop?
CeeCee put herself on the Coletti radar and specifically, Jake’s. While she is busy ducking and dodging the inevitable- because it is inevitable once a Coletti sets his sights on her, something is killing tribal shaman and it’s not human. Who is behind the creature’s attacks? The investigation takes this pair on an intense and sensual adventure together.
Each of the books in the series feature a feisty, skilled and tough female paired with a loyal and dedicated, but very arrogant hero. The tone is light and humorous even while some intense fight and battle scenes along with a bit of suspense fills in around the fiery and fast romances.
I’ve enjoyed meeting the Dragos women who like the Jones’ gals aren’t wimps and can take care of themselves though they tend to have different gifts than the Jones. CeeCee is able to see and communicate with ghosts and is able to manipulate weather like lightning and storms. But, all this power is paired with someone who has closed herself off because she was abandoned as a five year old by her dad and, though not her fault, her deceased mom. She doesn’t want to trust that Jake would be faithful and stick around. She also fears being coerced, but Jake is careful and tries to ease her into her new situation and buy her time. He, as a Jones, understands even as he tries to follow the Overlord’s orders.
As usual, I had a great time with the story and am curious what comes next for a certain Dragos’ woman and a determined Askole warrior particularly with a villain still on the loose. I can recommend this series for those who want light-hearted, but sexy sci-fi action romances.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
