Eden Black is a Raka or golden one, who are hunted by humans for the skins. She is also an assassin, one that is paid to protect the very people who would harm her, which is a long way she’s come from since her former spoiled kid ways. While on a mission, things go awry and she not only ends up hurt, but fails to complete her assignment. Eden vows to complete her mission, but the only way she is allowed to go back to the field is if she takes on a partner. Eden is determined to show her unwanted partner, Lucias Adaire, how much she doesn’t need him, but her desire for him makes him a hard man to dismiss.

Lucias Adaire has just been assigned as Eden Black’s partner, a woman he has little respect for due to reports of her bratty ways. But Eden’s grit and determination soon dispel Lucias of his notions and makes their attraction to one another even more enjoyable. In order to complete their mission, Eden must be used as bait but Lucias will let nothing and no one take his woman from him.

Enslave Me Sweetly is a kick butt adventure, that brings to life two very deadly and captivating characters. Eden is just the type of heroine I most enjoy, she can take care of herself and is willing and able to do what must be done to protect those she loves. Lucias is so alpha male and readers will just melt at his tenderness and at the ferocity he exhibits in protecting his woman. Gena Showalter has once again created two fascinating characters that readers will thoroughly enjoy following as they fall in love and try to complete their mission. I greatly look forward to reading more of Gena Showalter’s work and meeting more of her kick butt characters.
