This is how you write an erotic scifi book It certainly felt longer than 100pp it had depth and detail.So the Antarens have separated the women into slave chattel, while the men have become emasculated elites Enter those pesky humans who are always looking for alliances and trade partners Antarens have a deep rooted sense of honor, and only recently have learned deception Humans know all about deceit, but can be honorable at the most unlikely times.So what happens when the Antarens gift the human ambassador who s a big bad ass with one of their chattel women Honor triumphs over deceit, with lots of hot sex along the way.The story is not complicated, but it is complete, and it explores the various facets of first contact, including language and societal differences And the different perceptions about sex The Antaren Affair is one hot read I found the plotting subtle and intriguing, much like the complex language the author has created for the Antares.Ms Anderson has crafted complex characters as well The hero carries his physical and emotional scars with dignity and deliberation I was impressed by the author s adeptness in layering honor, determination and intelligence via the subtle weaving of his back story throughout the book It s given to us in little bites that were painless as well as seamless to read.Avar s character complements the heroine s perfectly I adored Meraya because she is just as honorable as Avar, perhapsconsidering her place in her world is a subservient one I loved that they were so well matched, despite the disparate differences in their stations in life.The world building is intriguing so if you like a solid Sci Fi alongside your erotica, The Antaren Affair is a must read.My only complaint about The Antaren Affair is there s almost too much sex I can t believe I m actually complaining about this The first half of the book, except for a short scene around Avar s arrival, details Avar and Meraya s first night together While I agree the detail is necessary to initiate a relationship between them that goes beyond sex, for me, the flow of the book dipped at the halfway point because I started wishing they d get out of bed and get on with the story Like I said, I can t believe I m complaining.Well done, Ms Anderson I m looking forward tofrom you.Eve
