Proteus is on a mission; to retrieve the five year old heir to the Ourian throne accidentally left behind in their hurried escape. But no such person exists on Sirene, and he must rely on Kyrie to help solve the puzzle while bringing her back to health with a generous dose of sexual healing!
As Kyrie and Proteus grow closer, an astonishing truth is revealed about the remaining inhabitants of Sirene that explains not only why her people vanished, but also the devious machinations of both races to regain power over the planet. To save all the people of Sirene and bring peace to her world, the cost may be not only Kyrie's life, but the love of her life as well.
Kyrie is a strong female character who holds a position of authority despite her ingenuous, sheltered upbringing. Proteus' amused assessment of her condition and subsequent 'treatment' is both touchingly funny and wildly erotic at the same time. (psst; plenty of men could take some pointers from him!) Kyrie's 'boss' Galen Andronicus is also wonderfully detailed--essentially the villain of the story but one who finds redemption in the end. (Yay!) Although the pace lags in some spots and is a tad subplot-rich, this book makes up for it in originality and attention to detail.
