Title: The Heracian Affair
Author: Liv Olteano
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Characters: Rizzo Berg and Conrad D’Ollet
Even years after Rizzo Berg’s lover and Dom died in combat, the memories torment him. Following a particularly disappointing date, Rizzo goes to sleep in his apartment only to wake up on a spaceship with tall, gorgeous, alien Captain Conrad D’Ollet of Heracia, a man so deliciously dominant Rizzo’s knees turn to jelly.
Apparently the Heracians need help, and Rizzo is a humanitarian through and through. Spending more time around Conrad is totally not one of the reasons he wants to lend a hand.
Soon Rizzo finds himself completely conquered and blissfully owned. But neither he nor Conrad is willing to risk his heart, let go of the past, and dare to believe in a future that won’t end in catastrophe.
The Heracian Affair is a fun, lighthearted book with unique characters that will keep you on your toes as the story progresses. I really liked the character of Rizzo, he was so full of spit and vinegar that he kept you wanting more. Almost to the point of being rude, he has used this technique since his lover died three years ago, and up until he is abducted by aliens it worked wonders.
Then he meets the tall, dark Heracian named Captain Conrad D’Ollet and his world will never be the same. Waking up on a ship after going to bed in your bed would be shocking for most of us, maybe even a little unsettling. But Riz takes it in stride, even enjoys tormenting the Captain…
Until he makes a fatal error according to Heracian custom!
Unknowingly, he ties himself to the captain as his mate. The problems only start there. Both men have their own issues to work through. Riz’s heart is on ‘shut down’ and he has worked very hard not to get hurt again, and Captian Conrad has already lost everything once. Are they willing to take the chance on each other? And is Riz really willing to leave everything for this man he just met? Want to find out? Read it and see what happens next! Recommended!
