Inarrii agent Alinna Gaerrii was tasked with observing the Starforce base on Earth. Crash landing her observation pod onto the base was not part of her mission briefing. Neither was making m’ittar—mind contact—with Major David Brown, the human who discovered her amongst the wreckage.
David thinks she’s a psychologist sent to evaluate his Special Forces team, and Alinna goes along with his misconception, seizing the opportunity to observe humans up close. But their daily contact has unexpected side effects, and Alinna soon invades David’s dreams. Through their intimate mental connection she allows him to express his forbidden physical desires.
Alinna delights in the sensory exploration and grows excited by the prospect of a treaty with the humans and a potential life mate in David. But an attack from an unknown ship sends the base into chaos, and Alinna may be forced to reveal her lie, erasing all hope of a successful treaty, and driving David away forever…
Alien Revealed by Lilly Cain was an interestingly hot book. Why is that, you ask? The idea of psychic sex is an intriguing concept. If it were truly possible, I’m sure few of us would ever concentrate on our work.
The relationship between Alinna and David evolves naturally, even allowing for a healthy amount of suspicion. The seduction is reciprocal, sensual, and hot, hot, hot. I enjoyed the way Ms. Cain gradually revealed their personalities and allowed the reader to know and understand them, too.
The world building was non-intrusive, and by that, I mean I recognized the setting without having it explained in great detail. That left my mind free to concentrate on the characters. You know what I’m going to say next, don’t you? Yes, be sure to keep a cold drink and fan close by.
