At eighteen, Senth Antonello already holds a lofty position in the elite Thieves' Guild. Drugged since puberty to suppress his feral half-feline side, nothing suppresses his other half, a daredevil who lives for risk. Before his master hires him out to a Better, an enhanced woman with addictive, pleasure-laced pheromones, the man offers him a deal too good to pass up. Finish the job successfully and he will buy Senth's older brother and free him. The job? Grab-and-go. The downside? Senth must remain a virgin, no matter how beautiful or tempting the woman.
Captain NarrAy Jorlan is twenty-five, a career officer, and determined to regain the technology stolen from her murdered parents. She hires a pro to steal it back. Unlike most Betters, NarrAy masters her powerful sex pheromones that addict her partners to her. Yet every moment with this sexually inexperienced young thief makes her wetter, hungrier, and more eager to taste and touch every part of his body. Surely she can steal a kiss or two from a thief without losing control. Can't she give in just a little, without risking him being at the mercy of her pleasure?
Here kitty kitty! Senth and his brother Kyff may have been raised separately not knowing each other exists, but once united like any feline these two can cause some trouble. Not only are they trouble but they are the worst kind of trouble, sexy trouble.
The relationship between Senth and NarrAy is one that will leave you thinking about these characters even after you finish reading this story. Senth and his determination to prove he is no longer boy and NarrAy’s determination to protect the world leaves you wanting more from these two. Not only are the two main characters unique but so are the supporting characters. There are a few choice characters that I already hope will have their own story.
The sexual tension between this unlikely pair is immediate leaving them no other option but to act upon the feelings. Although a virgin, Senth quickly learns his way around a woman’s body as if he had been doing it for years. Not only is the sex explosive between them, but they genuinely care for one another and cannot help but fall in love. This story definitely had the right amount of sugar and spice.
Because this was a sci-fi story based on another world the author really had free rein to use her imagination. While she did a great job with the characters I would have liked to have had more description about the environment around the characters. I wasn’t able to picture this unique world as well as I would have liked.
The conflict in this story was great. It actually left me questioning who was really on the side of justice on a few occasions. The only people you can actually say have the right intentions throughout this story are Senth and Khyff and even they have a checkered past. I mean how trustworthy can a thief and a prostitute really be? This was a good sci-fi story with a great cast and interesting plot. I look forward to more from this world.
