This was a enjoyable listen but it seemed a little drawn out. At times I wanted things to just "get on past this". I would say this would make an excellent $4.95 sale book. Save your credit for a better reviewed book.

This is book 3 in the Alien Huntress series and, although I really love the series this, IMHO, is a slightly disappointing addition - the story was slow at the start and the "she's so great" "he's so great" was repetitive. Yes, it was enjoyable but just not excellent, I am a huge romance and GS fan but if half of the needing, missing, owning, thinking, craving each other could have been taken out then the H/H could actually have focussed more on the good storyline.
Strong characters - Jaxon (the calm diplomat) and Mishka (the abused indestructible killer who's part machine and mixed DNA), good plot and sub plot - aliens spreading a deadly disease and Mishka's assignment of rescuing Jaxon from being tortured by others, then to hold him captive herself to get classified info from him. As they 'get to know' one another Jaxon realises Mishka's just someone's lethal puppet and starts to understand her and not judge her and she feels emotions, desire and the longing for independence and happiness that's all been constantly and ruthlessly denied her.
GS's world-building skills are so imaginative and there's action, fun, sex, suspense and a heartbreaking love story that seemed doomed from the start and then, when the other complex members of the A.I.R. team get involved their romance is threatened further. But the action really heats up.
Worth a credit? Despite the slow start and padded dialogue I still think this was a touching romance with a good plot - so YES creditworthy but I hope book 4 Seduce The Darkness (Devyn's story) will be more starworthy.
