Be careful in Darkside, because its darkness is seductive. Once you feel its allure, you won’t be able to resist.
Zyara al Sirian has devoted most of her adult life to the art of healing. As the First Division’s medic, she’s seen more than her fair share of war wounds and trauma. And ever since the Kordolians arrived on Earth, she’s had her hands full tending to a motley group of survivors.
She hasn’t had a break in longer than she can remember.
A break? What’s that again?
After much persuasion, she finally agrees to take some well-deserved time off to explore the city with Sera, Arin, Jia, and their Kordolian mates.
You need to relax. It’ll be fun, you’ll see. Darkside comes alive at night.
When she crosses paths with a mysterious, charming Human called Kainan, she realizes there’s more to this lawless place than meets the eye. The Federation holds no sway here. Beneath Darkside’s glittering facade, Humans rule hidden empires from the shadows through secrecy and violence.
Zyara gets a taste of their world when Human conflict spills out onto the street. She can’t help but intervene. It’s what she was trained to do.
Her actions save a life. In return, Kainan says he will give her anything she desires.
Oh dear. What’s a Kordolian to do?
I love it when in the alien romance the human is male.
The hero in this is an honorable mob boss. Not that the heroines cares that he is honor. She figures his job is a job like any other.
I love in this series that humans are seen for their strengths as well as their follies.
The hero is mega sexy. A sharp dressed asian gang tattooed man. I can’t tell if he is asian but it is likely that he is mixed in some way.
The heroine is the wonderful healer from the series. The romance is very good and sexy as hell.
He loves that she is so strong in all ways.
This part of the world is kind of dropped on the reader which made me not love the book in terms of the series plot arc and the novella is shorter than the love story deserved but it a pleasurable morsel of a book.
