Undercover Alliance (The Confederacy Treaty #3)
Sarina is scarred. Her L'inar, the curving nerve lines that enable Inarrii to experience their full sexuality, were severed in battle and she can no longer reach completion. Until she accepts a job as bodyguard to the human ambassador John Bennings, and is astonished to discover that they share a mental bond—a mirrored pathway of thoughts that will allow Sarina to climax.
The main character Sarina is an alien (well, an alien to Earth) called Inarrii. They are a very sexual species and have what are called L'inar that run along their entire bodies. These are nerve...more
I liked the romantic development between Sarina and John. Forgetting the part where Sarina is not human and has a very open attitude about sex, their relationship seemed real. This is a complaint I have about some romance books- the relationship develops too quickly and people who have known each other for 2 minutes are madly in love and getting married. Sarina and John get to know each other, as much as John will allow since he's w...more
Sarina has a biological problem that is likely to drive her insane. John is more than the human ambassador he appears to be. Amidst an intergalactic negotiations, the two must work together to ensure that a treaty is signed before terrorists destroy Earth's possible only chance of survival.
What can I say? I'm on a roll from Carina Press. All of the scifiroms I've read have been dog gone awesome.
John is the man Sarina is charged to protect. He is a human who is part of...more
I got the ARC for Undercover Alliance and you know what I really have to pay attention to what I sign up to review, first off this was a little too science fictiony for my taste and secondly I hate picking up a book in the middle of a series. Undercover Alliance is the third book in the Confederacy Treaty and since I haven't read the first two it was rather daft starting with the third one.
Undercover Alliance was thankfully ver...more
Sarina was a great female lead. As a strong Inarri warrior, she can hold her own in military...more
When the story begins, Sarina is damaged; her external nerve system that defines her race has been severed, and she's unable to reach a sexual climax, which her people determine is necessary to their mental health. As a result, this fema...more
I don't know what it is about Sci Fi books, but they just seem a natural fit with the erotica genre. This is book #3 in this series and I've really enjoyed all three books. They take place in a world of the future where earth has just made first contact with an alien civilization, the Inarrii. The Inarrii are a lot like humans physiological...they are just more sexual and have nerve endings on the surface of their skin, called L'inar, which are very erogenous and appear like tattoos. F...more

"Undercover Alliance" by Lilly Cain was a good fantasy science fiction erotic romantic read that I found very interesting read.

I will be going back and reading the previous books as I did enjoy the writing style and the world this is set in.
Sarina is a very strong heroine who is at a point in her life where things do not look good and she is lost... You see she has damage done to her that makes her unable to orgasm. This may not seem like a huge deal (yeah I know I like them too but...more
One of the neat things about genres like science fiction romance is that the author gets to use the science fiction part of the blend to "play" with or comment on some of the aspects of the human experience from a slightly different perspective.
Undercover Alliance by Lilly Cain lives up to its claim of being erotic science fiction romance. And it does a very good job of it, too!
But the alien race in her Confederacy Treaty series, the Inarrii, are not merely...more
The worldbuilding in this series is so fun. I really do love that the Inarii's well-being is tied to sex. Without release, they slowly lose their minds. Sarina is...more
Sarina is Inarrrii. The Inarrrii are a sexual humanoid alien. They’ve got sexual nerves running throughout their bodies that appear on the skin like henna tattoos. Sarina was injured and unable to come to completion sexually which is like a sentence to insanity for an Inarrrii. John is a human who is working undercover to stop the threat to the Human/ Ina...more
Aside from that, this is a solid read. The characters were interesting and so was the plot. I really like the world Cain has created. I'm looking forward to reading the first book in the series (which I somehow missed) and hope to see more from her in...more
A strong female character, a hot man, and lots of action. Undercover Alliance is fun, sexy, quick read. If you’re a fan of science fiction romance, you’ll be a fan of this novella.
This one difficult read.
With all the sci-fi words it was to hard to keep track to know, what what!
You really need to be a die-hard sci -fi fan to read this one out! I don't think the hotness and Alfa man make it up to the story. Review to come.
