Ex-Chicago detective Lilly D’Angelo is part of a secret alien race living on Earth. With a gentle caress she can elevate the sexual energy of any male. Apprehending criminals lost in an erotic fugue is almost too easy—until she uses her gift on the wrong alien. Kidnapped and shipped into deep space, Lilly barely escapes with her life. Now she travels the galaxy alone, working as a bounty hunter and hoping to find a soul mate unaffected by her touch.
Agent Dallas Sawyer works for QAL—deep space’s version of the FBI. After a disastrous mission that left a president murdered, his team member executed and Dallas near death, he’s determined to take down the assassin targeting government officials. When a sexy human female gets between him and his goal, Dallas and his alien partner find themselves on the receiving end of some wild sex and a proposition that may very well blow up in their faces.
Because in deep space…true love can happen with just a touch.
Her touch can bring a man to his knees, even the one man who isn’t affected by her gift at all. Lilly D’Angelo was born with a gift that has been more of a curse for most of her life. Lilly has the ability to manipulate male hormones which she doesn’t hesitate to use for pleasure, persuasion, or her own protection. She’s not prepared to meet a man who is simply turned on by her and not for what she can do to him.
After an explosive first meeting that has Lilly and QAL agent, Dallas Sawyer, working off some sexual tension, Lilly is convinced that Dallas’s attention is influenced by her ability just like every other man she literally comes in contact with. Little does she know Dallas isn’t like every other man she’s met. I can’t tell you his secret or that would give too much of the story away. Read the book!
Dallas’s partner and best friend is Thaegan, an alien that closely resembles humans except for his bright red skin. While Thaegan isn’t immune to Lilly’s charm he is able to shed some light on her abilities and even control his lust when the three come together for the first time.
This was a very fast paced little novella. Lilly was pretty likable as a heroine with a heavy burden to work thru. Who wouldn’t have some angst after being kidnapped and sold to a slave trader on another planet, right? She comes off as severely independent but you just know she is hoping by some miraculous event to find a man immune to her gift. Like Lilly, Dallas has some issues to work thru that have bruised his self-confidence as a leader.
If you’re in the mood for a little sci-fi alien mojo that will scorch your e-reader, you will love A Touch Of Lilly! I think you’ll agree that Ms. Pierce has a very talented voice for menage as well as out of this world action/adventure.
