Seduction (Frost Station Alpha #2) by Ruby Lionsdrake

His mouth opened, drawing her in, tasting her back.
Gently, warmly, not like a plundering pirate
but like a friend, a lover, someone who cared.

Lieutenant Tamryn Pavlenko wants to make a name for herself in the GalCon Fleet, so naturally she requests an assignment on the infamous Frost Station Alpha, where pirate attacks are a way of life. The remote research outpost holds secrets that many are willing to kill for, and Tamryn is prepared to protect it from brigands, mobsters, and mercenaries—or whatever the galaxy throws at her.

The brochure, however, failed to mention the genetically engineered super humans who were supposed to have all been killed in a war that ended more than a century ago. It seems they’re not only alive, but they want the station. Oh, and one of them decides he wants Tamryn too.

This powerful warrior might be sexy and intriguing, but he was bred to kill, and she can’t let herself forget that he’s the enemy.

*Frost Station Alpha is a science fiction romance published in six parts.

After a where-the-hell-is-a-fan-at seduction tease closing up part one, part two manages to increase the heat with Tamryn's turn at rendering our dear Makkon just about brainless as she simultaneously takes him near orgasm while setting up a killing blow to his femoral artery. And what does it get her? An even higher standing in Makkon's regard. The man doesn't see betrayal in the act, but discovers a new level of respect for a fellow survivor.

These two are true soldiers in the most romanticized of ways. Both highly deadly, hesitant to compromise, and damned-be-all-else willing to do just about anything to get the task done. And while Makkon only delves into the darker aspect of his wants and desires in his fantasies, having the honor of a good man with all the instincts of a predator, it is apparently not beneath Tamryn to whore herself when absolutely necessary.

And still the mantra reigns: He wants her to want him. He wants her to understand.

5 out of 5 stars.
