"Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped-and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he's determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like n ...more

Alien Huntress and Otherworld Assassin -- I wrote both series for a publisher I'm no longer writing for (but I still love them). So, to publish books for these series, I will have to write and self-publish them, something I know nothing about. I'm totally willing to learn -- and want to -- I just have to find time between books I already owe to the publisher I'm with.
Given that its been 4 years since the last book and given that self-publshing is extremely easy, I suspect AH is done. Very disappointing.
His possibly-straddling-the-edge-of-gay guy-crush was reserved for Devyn, king of the Targons, best friend and egotistical shithead who once collected women like other men collected hats.

Gena Showalter is a goddess. Seriously. I don't know how the woman does it. She has at least three series in progress and manages to get out at least four books a year! And I think she's had more than that this year. She's fucking amazing. I ...more

Noelle was done with that kind of thing. Done with trying to be something other than what she was. If a guy couldn’t see the treasure underneath the smart mouth, he didn’t deserve her.
I fell in love with Noelle Tremain in the previous book and she didn’t disappoint in this book. I love how she acts like a ditzy, spoiled heiress, knowing that’s what everyone expects her to be and only revealing her true self to her best friend Ava. She’s tough, a smart-ass, a bit spoiled but not in a bad way,...more
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Gena Showalter is the freaking best! DARK TASTE OF RAPTURE was amazing, it was so good, guys. I couldn't stop reading it and I actually didn't. And, have you seen that cover?!
I knew even before reading this book that I'd love Hector and I was not wrong! Before DARK TASTE OF RAPTURE, I only had one Hector in my life, THE Hector of all Hectors. You guessed it. Hector Chavez aka Hispanic Hottie aka Double H. Kristen Ashley brought him into my life and I ne ...more
AIR agent in training, Noelle Tremain has her libido and heart set on her instructor, Hector Dean. Unfortunately, Hector is determined to keep Noelle at arms length, literally, as he is unable to control his deadly ability to kill with touch. But when Noelle and Hector are partnered on a case, there will be no escaping the smoldering passion between them.
Series note: This is the final book in Showalter's Alien Huntress series. However, the spin-off, Otherworld Assass ...more
What I did like:
1. I didn't have any trouble remembering the storylines from previous books. The author did a good job of refreshing my memory.
2. There was a lot of sexual tension
3. It was funny
4. Hector was actually a hottie
5. Hector was crazy possessive
6. Noelle was kick-ass
7. Favorite quote: (view spoiler)["Be with me, if only to convince everyone at AIR that I'm not gay. Did you know everyone thought that? The other day, Phoenix tried ...more
That's pretty much all there is to it. He's funny, sexy, confident, and I can't wait for his book!!!

How do you like your heroes? Tall, muscled, strong, tortured, tattooed, oh-so-sexy, with golden eyes and . . .dimples! Is that close? Well then, meet Hector Dean. I mean, just take a look at the cover. He is edible!! And to make the cover justice, the man you will meet in the book is a fantasy come to life!
This book backtracks i ...more
So much of this series is left unfinished! I want to see Dallas and the Schoen Queen plot get tied up. I was so confused by the visions he had.
What's going on with Dare?
The sex slave ring?
It's been years but I truly hope Ms. Showalter comes back to this.
It was recently brought to my attention that I hadn't finished up the Alien Huntress series! One book short! Obviously I had to rectify that. This book isn't the last of the series though. I mean, it ...more

He did. He knew. But how did he know? "I'm not upset."
How dare he call her on her lie! "This is my best friend's most special day and I have never, ever been happier--"
"--than I am right now."
"I can't believe you ever fooled me," he said, all kinds of self-disgust in his tone. "You're a terrible liar."
How. Did. He. Know? Dallas hadn't. Ava suspected, but even she hadn't realized the depths of Noelle's misery.
Have you ev ...more
I wasn't too sure of Noelle, as a heroine, but as usual, I never should have doubted Gena. She did a great job of making Noelle a heroine to be admired and respected. She was such a great and sassy character. I loved her! The engagement ring that Hector got for her was spot on and her response to it was quite laughable. I reall ...more

Anyhoo, I really enjoyed this book. I liked the world building although if you think about it too much it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Why do all these other types of aliens want to live on Earth? But I liked the love story enough not to think about that too much. It did't have any dopey futuristic gag tr ...more
Dark Taste Of Rapture takes us to a world where humans know of alien existence. In fact they plainly walk around among humans. In true to human form, some are prejudiced against them and some embrace their differences. In this ...more

Dark Taste of Rapture left me wanting more of this world!
Noelle and Hector is a great couple. Both are strong and vulnerable. Noelle is cocky and keeps people at arm's length with her snark and dumb, rich girl act. But Hector sees right through it. The two can't stay away from each other at first until Hector shuts their attraction down by telling Noelle not to ever speak to him again.
Hector, like Noelle, keeps people from g ...more
Now the treat of this book is that it doesn’t pick up where Ecstasy in Darkness left off but starts before that book. So you get a good look into life before the hot McKell ...more
Amo totalmente esta serie, para mi es la segunda mejor serie de esta autora, que por cierto es de "Mis Favoritas" luego viene O.A. en tercer lugar porque es un Spin Off de esta jejejeje.
Aunque la unica queja que tengo es el final me pareció un poco apurado y quedé como... (Qué??? ya terminó, así???) y el deseo incomprensible porque saqué más libros de ella, todo lo demás es genial, te ríes con ella, lloras con ella, te entretiene, te mantiene enganchada a cad ...more

Plus a few other things a girl like me just can’t live without but can’t mention in mixed company because it would be indelicate. You know, because they’re sexual.”
- at “lingerie,” Hector and Dallas had stood a little straighter. At “sexual,” they’d moaned. Jaxon punched them both in the back of the head.”
