“By combining aliens and office politics together we have a funny and romantic series that certainly has me hooked.”
~ Under the Covers

Welcome to DETI, the Department of Extra Terrestrial Immigration in 2266. Earth is taking in refugees from the planet Teiss after they have been invaded and the planet overrun. After a tragic disaster with one of the refugee ship’s, Maggie’s department is flooded and she needs help. Ro is new to Earth, but wants to leave his past on Tessia behind and make a fresh new start. Maggie is delighted when she gets Ro on her team and she can’t deny her growing attraction and friendship with him. However, he has a few secrets that threaten their budding romance…

I am really enjoying V.C. Lancaster’s new look at office romances and alien romances. By combining aliens and office politics together we have a funny and romantic series that certainly has me hooked. The second book in the series takes us to the enquiries departments, where Maggie is the unofficial boss and Ro is a new starter.

Ro and Maggie have an instant connection. Maggie is fascinated by him and won over by his good natured charm and Ro seems equally fascinated and smitten by her. Much like the first book their completely different cultures and biology leads to misunderstandings between them. Again, it is what drives the story forward but I found although this normally annoys me, it seemed more understandable given the context.

However, it isn’t completely understandable. Clearly DETI needs to put some kind of cultural awareness training in place and have some advocates scattered around. Their problems could have been solved by just a few facts about the basic biology of each race. But, been as humans barely understand other humans from a different culture and rarely make the effort to try, maybe this was closer to the truth than we would want!

But, I still enjoyed the romance, between Maggie and Ro, especially at the beginning of the book. They were an adorable couple and I did enjoy the book. I am now waiting impatiently for the next one to come out!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
