Codename Autumn

Undercover Embassy, Book One

In a future where women have few choices, Autumn fears she’ll never again know the pleasure of a man’s touch. Then General Ra’jen Noirte rescues her from a whipping gone wrong. The sexy alien captivates her, reawaking dormant desires. On the surface he radiates deadly aggression, but Autumn has glimpsed his tormented soul. Though he commands the occupation army, she suspects they have similar goals.

Ra’jen returns from combat to find a woman bound, abused and abandoned. His healing touch soon turns to hunger as she stirs beneath his hands. With milk-white skin and flame-red hair, Autumn tempts him to abandon his responsibilities and indulge long-neglected needs. Every kiss, every caress distracts from his mission, and the fate of Earth depends on his success. More than love is on the line as they form an uneasy alliance and fight their mutual enemies.


 I received this e-book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

What I Liked:

The futuristic atmosphere was an interesting story element. I like dystopian stories and this definitely fell into that category. The alien nature of the hero in the story was also intriguing. It added a taste of the forbidden, as did the elements of BDSM. There is a spy plot line going on and this being the beginning of a series, I am interested in seeing where the author takes it. The love scenes were hot and natural. What more can a girl want?

What I Didn't:

The beating scene at the onset of the story was a little disturbing, as was the society where rape was a consistent fear among the women. Yes, in any society that does exist, but it felt almost palpable here. A girl had to prostitute herself just to be semi-protected against it. Harsh.



I liked the dystopian story line and the hot sex with the main characters. The beating was a lead in to the hero saving the heroine, and that worked withing the context of the story. The threat of rape in this world was kind of a looming presence, however.  The spy back story is interesting and I will be checking out more in this series.

If you like futuristic stories with elements of BDSM, give this one a try. The alien sex and mental bond was good and had me turning the pages pretty quickly.
