“If, like me, you love alien romances and the more unusual the alien the better, than this is a must read. Even if you don’t like weird aliens, this is still a sweet romance between two people…you just need to look beyond the tentacles.”
~ Under the Covers
Since Aymee’s friend came back to their settlement with her kraken male, before having to escape again, she has been fascinated with them. And with one kraken in particular; Arkon. But, her contact with the kraken may put them in danger as human hunters have come to The Watch, her home, to find them.
I have no idea how the writing duo that is Tiffany Roberts have done it, but somehow they have made men with tentacles instead of legs sexy. Tentacles! It’s crazy! But I love it. The second in the Kraken series features Aymee and Arkon, who met momentarily in Treasure of the Abyss, that brief meeting has spurned a fascination for both of them.
In a genre full of alpha males, I really like it when an author does something a little different. Arkon is an artist and although he is a skilled hunter when he needs to be, he would much rather be creating beautiful things. I loved the Arkon was a gentler character than the typical hero, although of course he was fierce in his protection of Aymee. I loved the relationship between Aymee and Arkon, it started with an immediate connection with a period of admiring each other from a far, that develops into something deeper once they get closer.
Aside from the romance, there was also some action as human hunters come to The Watch to find the kraken. Although this part of the story was essentially used to push Aymee and Arkon together, it also revealed a little bit more of the history of The Watch as well as introducing a new character.
If, like me, you love alien romances and the more unusual the alien the better, than this is a must read. Even if you don’t like weird aliens, this is still a sweet romance between two people…you just need to look beyond the tentacles.

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?
