I'm back in Sirantha Jax universe this week. I'm really enjoying this series; it's sci fi romance and it's very good. This quote is from book three, "Doubleblind". Jax is an ambassador to a planet populated by sentient bugs who hate humans. She's getting ready for an official party.

She goes on. "You may wish to pay particular attention to Devri. His physiological readings, if I have analyzed them correctly, indicate a certain excitement in your presence. I have insufficient data to determine whether his interest is sexual."

Now that surprises the sh** out of me. Being attracted to soft-skins would certainly be considered a kink among Ithtorians, if not an outright perversion. I can't imagine such a misalliance being accepted.

"It might just be enthusiasm for the potential alliance," I offer.

"Possible," she acknowledges. "I would need to scan an Ithtorian male who is ready to mate before I could determine the meaning of the elevated heat levels I noted in Councilor Devri's anatomy while you were speaking."

Heh. I don't see us being offered that opportunity, no matter how hospitable the Ithtorians seem.

    Where the Night Kind Roam

  2. I'm liking the cover on this one. Once I get caught up on reviews it's one of the series I'm planning on checking out :) Thanks for sharing this week!

  3. I don't usually do sci-fi but this made me chuckle. :-P

  4. Is this book stand alone or part of a series?

    1. It's definitely not a stand-alone. It's book 3 of a series and you meed to read in order.

  5. Great quote!! I saw this a month ago and now really want to read it! I really enjoy sci-if ocassionally.

  6. J.K. and Ning, I rarely read sci fi so I resisted this series for years but a friend of mine assured me I'd like it so I tried it and she was right. :D It's sci fi, romance, action, some mystery, it's a wonderful mix.

    Amanda and Herding Cats, YES! Give it a try. :)

  7. Aaaaaah, it's been a while since I've read this. So enjoyed this series. :) Thank you for sharing a few great memories.

  8. A bit confusing but definitely intriguing.
