I enjoyed this Kinsmen tale much more than the first. While this book is a romance, it certainly doesn’t start out feeling that way. I’d even argue that this is a solid science-fiction story that just happens to include romantic elements as part of the plot. The world-building regarding Claire’s home planet and how psychers operate was detailed but not overbearing for such a short book.
On the other hand, the romance itself has all the trappings of a contemporary office romance, proving once again how great the Andrews are at genre-blending. Claire was a much more interesting character than Venturo, but she has a more interesting life and we spend the book from her perspective.
I don’t think the authors plan to continue this series, but I would definitely read more if they ever did.
Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
