“People may tease me about my love of sci fi romances, especially any that involve some super sexy (and sometimes strangely endowed) aliens, but I love it.”
~ Under the Covers
There’s one way to describe Nikhil. Huge. Even amongst the strongest and biggest of the warriors of the Kaliszian Empire, Nikhil is the biggest and strongest. But, his size doesn’t bother Mac, after all he has just saved her from a life of slavery and far worse, and that life would have proven to be very short. Not that Mac has any idea where she is, being captured by aliens and sold as labour wasn’t something she ever expected to happen to her, but Nikhil’s strength and love seem to be what she needs to heal all her wounds, both internal and external.
I love M.K. Eidem, especially her Tornians series so I was so excited to see that she was doing a spin off about the Kaliszians, neighbours of the Tornians; what a treat. People may tease me about my love of sci fi romances, especially any that involve some super sexy (and sometimes strangely endowed) aliens, but I love it. What’s not love? There’s always lots of romance, a bit of humour, not to mention the aforementioned super sexy (and strangely endowed) aliens. Nikhil offers all of that, although you are safe in regards to the strangely endowed alien thing, instead he is largely endowed.
This book doesn’t differ from Eidem’s previous books, what we have here is a very sweet romance between two people from very different cultures. Which at times is both funny and frustrating to read, but overall, I definitely enjoyed it; Mac and Nikhil were adorable together and it left wanting to read more. There was also a really interesting connection between Mac and a heroine from Wray a book in the Tornian series, which is a story thread I cannot wait to follow through with, I really like how she has connected up the two series so well. Not that you need to have read the Tornian series to follow this, but if you enjoy Nikhil, you should definitely pick the other series up, they are very similar so you are bound to enjoy them as well.
Over all, I really liked this book, it was such a blast to read and now I am left eagerly anticipating whatever book M.K. Eidem brings out next.

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?
