I liked this one better than the first. Something hit home for me on this one. Lucius was HOT!! That man was a jerk but he was so possessive of Eden , how can you not love that?. Their banter back and forth was truly funny. New characters were introduced and I have to say that I wanted to hate Delvyn in the beginning but at the end I loved him . Hope that there is more of him later in the series . Another great book.

Enslave Me Sweetly
4 Stars

Eden Black, an alien assassin renowned for never missing a target, discovers to her chagrin that there is always a first time. Forced to work with a human partner, Lucius Adaire, Eden is determined to put a stop to the trafficking ring selling humans as slaves to otherworlders. However, as Eden and Lucius go undercover and their attraction skyrockets, their mission takes a turn for the worse and they will have to utilize all of their skills and abilities to succeed befor
Enslave Me Sweetly is the second book in Gena Showalter's fantastic Alien Huntress series. Set in the same futuristic world as Awaken Me Darkly, this story takes part in a different area of the United States and within a different government organization, so it is able to stand on its own. Eden Black is an assassin for a company owned by her adoptive father, Michael, that operates even farther outside of the law than A.I.R. The government turns to Michael's company when they need an alien assass ...more

The title and picture on the cover is kinda a misnomer- you'd think this is one of those books about kink but isnt. It's better.

The heroine is an alien raised by a human who hunts alien baddies.

Attempting to prove herself to the man who raised her as daughter, she really wants to catch the off worlder sex trafficker who is capturing females- human and alien- and selling them to the highest bidder.

In her first attempt, she failed...bigtime. Desperatly wanting to make up for it, she talks her fa

I was not expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did, specially after the first book in the series was ok to me, but I loved this one. Where can I start, the characters were amazing. Eden Back is an otherworlder that has been raised on Earth. Her skin, eyes and hair are gold. And she's an assassin of otherworlder criminals. She is then partnered against her will with Lucius, a human very hot alpha male to kill her target EenLi, an otherworlder who is kidnapping human women (mostly) and auctio ...more

Okay.. This book is awesome! I was laughing the entire time while reading this one. But the story has a dept to it as well. The plot, the characters, everything was well written and well put together. I was actually in suspense the last 5 chapters of this one.

This was excellent. I listened to the audiobooks, I don't understand why there aren't different voices. You get use to a certain person being one character, not a number of characters. Anyway, this was a great story. It had the action, drama, humor, and the steam. I loved Eden, Michael, Lucius, and Devyn. I loved that Devyn has a story. This one had me wanting to kick some a*$. I definitely recommend.

I read the first Alien Huntress book a good while back so when I decided to pick the series up again, it took a little bit for me to remember the universe Ms. Showalter has created. I'm pleased to say though that this installment (as a vast majority of her books) did not disappoint.

Enslave Me Sweetly focuses on Eden, an Earth-born Raka who works as a small-time assassin for the government. With golden skin and hair, she's basically a walking hunk of money so loads of people seem to want a piece

Phineas Gaylord Hargrove and Eden Fucking Black lol great names. Gena Showalter has done it again, I have to say that I love this book better then the first. I love the heroine Eden, she's a kick ass female who gets what she wants and I love that about her. Now to the good part Mr. Oh so sexy Lucius, what can I say about him expect he's hot? No that doesn't sum him up, Lucius is a kick ass take no names guy and I fell in love with him from the beginning. Love the relationship between him and Ede ...more

Ok, so the reason for why I think I'm not being able to rate the books in this series any higher is that we only get one POV. I do like this but at the same time I despise it. I enjoyed reading from the heroine's POV because we really get to know her and it feels like you are really a part of every little thing that is going on. On the other hand, you never really get the sensation that you actually get to know the characters because you never know what they are thinking or p

As far as paranormal romances go, Showalter definitely used a lot of imagination for this series... (it would be promptly obvious that I haven't read the first installment. So there.)

The fact that this story is not another one of those vampire-romances (are we done with those, yet?) warrants a semblance of appreciation for its attempt to be ingenious in matters of plot.

Plus, the sexual tension between the couple is at a healthy level. That's good enough for me if a quick, entertaining romance re

I recommend you read the first book in the series, Awaken Me Darkly before reading this book. However, the back story on Eden and the character development were so thoroughly detailed, that this story was complete enough to be a stand alone. I really enjoyed this book and read it all in one day. This series didn't take long to worm its way into being one of my favorite series. This installment started off a bit slow. In the beginning Eden and Lucius seemed to be doing more romancing than investi ...more

This book was just as good as the first book if not better in my opinion. It's set in the same world as Awaken Me Darkly, but moves from New Chicago to New Dallas with a whole new group of bad guy fighters. This time the heroine is an alien herself though she was born on earth and adopted by a human man.

Eden, contrary to her alien race, is a tough assassin and fighter doing what she can to keep people safe from aliens who seek to exploit them. Eden has been tasked to break a slave ring. Her firs

His lips stretched to a full, anticipatory grin. “Agreed. But get ready, cookie.” He lifted up, getting so close I felt the warmth of his breath on my face. “I want your mouth all over me.”

Oh my, Lucius Adaire you sexy man, I want to nibble on you and do other naughty things.

Loved this book, the heroine Eden Black was a kick-ass alien and didn't take shit from anyone. She's determined to stop another alien who is kidnapping humans and selling them as slaves to other-worlders. Her first

I loved the characters of this book. I even loved the woman collecting Targon King Devyn. He seems like he will be an awesome lead male to read. Eden and Lucius go undercover to bring down a slave trading, person-napping other worlder. At the beginning of the book Eden had the human trafficker in her grasp but misses the shot and becomes injured herself. Eden's father (without her knowledge) hires Lucius (Agent Luscious) to keep her out of harm’s way. From the moment they are put together they ...more
First, let me say how much I loved the world that the author built. Very cool. I hope I can read more of Showalter's Alien Huntress series. The plot was fast-paced and extremely fun with some nice little steamy scenes thrown in for good measure.
The reason I didn't rate it any higher than I did was because the writing seemed clunky. Really clunky. I know the author writes several series, so maybe she's just churning them out a little too fast? I'm not sure, but there were several times that I lo

Wow, I loved this story! Eden and Lucius were such a great team as far as banter and tension. The story has Eden, an asassain for the good guys, trying to take out an other-worlder who is selling humans as slaves to other aliens. She goes undercover and as a Rakan is highly valuable, and extremely sought after. The set-up doesn't go as planned and Eden is bought and taken off-world with a super hot king of the Targons, Devyn. But she negotiates her freedom and saves her man, Agent Lucius, and th ...more

I am so in love with Gena Showalters Alien Huntress series and with this addition I fell in love with Eden Black, a Raka alien who was raised by a human who trains and assigns jobs for assassination. With one failure Eden has been assigned a partner to complete the job she failed. Lucius Adaire has one mission, protect Eden Black...who is going to become a victim of a slaver who sells men and women of all races for top dollar, some are so cruelly abused before the auctions that they just don't m ...more

I read this next book in the series because I quite enjoyed the first Alien Huntress Book. I had expectations that the book would either have similar characters or read with a similar theme. I was correct with the theme, but I found this book more difficult to get into. I didn't connect with the characters as quickly as I could have and I think this was a problem I have personally with too many characters who are too 'alien'. I didn't seem to warm to the characters as I had no connection with th ...more

Her parents were killed when she was young and she is raised by a human who invents weapons and hires his people out as assassins. As she reaches adult hood she asks to train with her father and his men. Because he wants her to be able to defend herself he agrees. But then she wants to go on assignments. Her latest is to kill an alien who is a slave trader. He captures both humans and other ...more

Eden Black is a trained killer who always gets her prey. Unfortunately always is not true now. Her latest target slipped away and Eden was gravely hurt. Now Micheal (her father and boss) has teamed her up with a human. The last thing in the world that Eden wants is a partner. But there is something about Agent Lucius Adaire that draws Eden. Something that may just get them both killed.

Well, I must say, this book was FABULOUS! I loved the hero and didn't want to slap the heroine, which is more than I can say for most books, LOL. Lucius was just awesome.

On the other hand, though, I was disappointed that events from the previous book were only mentioned once in passing. We've been promised some Kyrin and Mia as well as Lucius and Eden in the next book, though, which I am most definitely looking forward to :)

So far I think I liked this one the best of the series. In this book we meet Eden Black (female)alien assasin and daughter of the boss, Michael.
After being injured, she can only gather glimpses of a man... pine scent... hard muscles...carrying her, taking care of her? Who is this man? Meet Lucius, Tall, dark, ripped and dripping intocicating sexual sinew. Yum. oh and he's her new partner...

A good read!

Eden Black is a Rakan, one of the last of her kind, working as an assassin for her adopted father's private security company. They are trying to shut down a ring of slave traders, and Eden has to act as bait. She doesn't want a partner in this endeavor, but her father insists Lucius help her out. The two chase the bad guys and fall in love. Eden is badass and Lucius is luscious. The plotting is suspenseful and secondary characters are well-drawn. This is not a hastily thrown together submission ...more

Eden is a Raka, a sensual planet where the people are golden in appearance. But unlike her people, she is a trained assassin that will do anything to finish a job and save lives. She is partnered with Lucius, and eventhough they have opposing pov at first, they worked and eventually fall in love with each other. The case they're working on is really difficult but they managed to solve it with the help of another alien. Anyway, the chemistry between them is really noticable, and with the blend of ...more
This one's been sitting on my TBR pile for a while now, and I'm glad I found a reading challenge that synched up with this excellent little sci-fi romance. Showalter delivers a rousing tale, heavy on the world building and lite on the erotic details. Her characters are fun, engaging, and bad asses, all rolled into nice packages. She weaves a world of humans and exotic aliens on a future Earth that hasn't quite come to terms with the other species. Her characters are complex, and the bad guys and ...more

Enslave Me Sweetly was another good addition to this series, but it did read very much like the first one. This time we're in New Dallas, following Eden Black, an alien huntress who is also an alien. She's a Raka, one of the rarest aliens on Earth, since they're killed for their golden skin and hair. However, Eden was adopted by a very rich and powerful man, so she's been safe. Her current mission is to kill EenLi, an alien who auctions off women to other-worlders as sex slaves. She fails in her ...more
