The highly anticipated sequel to Close Liaisons...
In Lenkarda - the main Krinar colony on Earth - Mia is completely at Korum's mercy. With no way to leave and no idea how to operate even the most basic Krinar technology, she has no choice but to trust the K who brought her there - the lover whom she had betrayed.
Will he keep his promise to bring her home, or is she destined to be his prisoner forever? Can a human become a part of Krinar society? Does Korum love her, or does he only wish to possess her?

"If you're looking for some sexy summer reads, you'll want to check out the new book series, Krinar Chronicles. Author Anna Zaires brings you a kind of 50 Shades of Grey meets Star Trek tale . . ." (Marie Claire)
"For diehard fans of the paranormal romance genre, author Anna Zaires's risqué new book could be your next guilty pleasure. Zaires's most recent read, Close Liaisons, combines a love story with science fiction in the tale of Mia, an unassuming college student whose life gets suddenly entangled in a dangerous, otherworldly affair." (Woman's Day)
I listen to my books while working, and I work alot!, love Detective, Dystopian, Science fiction, Fantasy, U/F, PNR and Steam Punk.
This is book two in the series continues right where it left off in 'Close Liaisons', after the disastrous events Mia is feeling off balance confused and not quite sure how she is going to cope being in a Krinar settlement. Korum is still as overbearing, dominant brooking no arguments and making all of the decisions. with the court case, her new surroundings, he demands ALL of her .
The strength of this series is the world depicted, the very clever technology and the still growing very freaky relationship between Korum and Mia.
I still had not made up my mind about Korum but you do see a vulnerable side despite his heavy handed, oppressive approach, which very nicely builds to a culminating tension fit to explode.
Wonderful sci/fi erotic escapism..
I must admit though I prefer Kathleen Godwins narration, as I thought in the first book she gave an eerie voice to Korum that translated his character wonderfully, - saying this Kitty Hendrix narrates well.
Looking forward to the next in the series...
"Riviting storyline! Sexy as hell!"
See my full review under the first book in the series: Close Liaisons: The Krinar Chronicles, Volume 1. This is my favorite author of all time! Her story telling never disappoints! You cannot stop with just the first book. I am so anticipating her new stuff that's to come out soon! I cannot give this series a high enough recommendation!
"Loved it Something Different"
I liked over all it was different from your passion love story. Still was Hot and Heated but different too =).
As stated I loved these two books, I was looking for something new and Unique. I love horror and Mystery but found this book and loved it. Thanks for a Brilliant Unique Love Story

Saret love him and I love every one too
yes . I will be listening to it again.
Just listen to the audio and read Anna Zaire books ;) They are Awesome
"Great Continuation of the Series"
Book Two of the Krinar Chronicles does not disappoint! The story picks up right where Close Liaisons ends. Korum and Mia spend some time in the Krinar colony in Costa Rica, which allows the author to continue with her fascinating world building. In Close Liaisons, Mia mentions going to visit her parents; this visit happens in CO, with Korum accompanying her to meet her family. I really liked this part, it was interesting to see her family's reaction to the 'man' in Mia's life. The best part of the book, though, in my opinion, is the character development of Korum. I thought he was such a jerk in book one, and we learn a lot more about him in this installment which explains some of that. There is a villain in this book as well, which adds some elements of danger and suspense. The sexy scenes are steamy and well written as always - definitely not suitable for anyone under 18!
Now, on to the narration. Although this actress is an improvement over the narrator of the first book, this performance still isn't great. She does well with the dialogue for the female characters, hitting all the right notes and inflections, but is terrible with any male dialogue. She is especially deficient when conveying anger or sarcasm in the male voice. It just isn't there in her tone and takes away from the story. And - minor quibble - she pronounces a particular part of the female anatomy in an unusual way. Unusual to me, anyway, and it struck me as funny every time she did it.
Overall, this is a great book, and narration issues aside, I highly recommend it.
"My kind of flavor!!"
Ok, let me start by saying the reason I absolutely love this book and the previous book is the fantasy aspect. The alien vampire technology is a dream come true. Now if you don't enjoy the fanciful stuff your not going to be happy with this book. I love the fanciful world this book took me to. It was a very advanced world that I enjoyed due to the great imagination of AZ. I think that AZ is a extremely talented author and I do like her style. Also the sexual content is intense. That's always a plus.
Now I must address the narration. It's just BAD. You cannot tell the male voice from the female .All the characters blend together. This is a very good book and it would be so much better with a good narrator. Please change narration for the next book!!
This is not a stand alone book. Get book 1 before this one. If your a ScFy fan and you like allot of romance thrown in with it, then this series is for you. There are narration issues but maybe Book 3 will be better. I'm sure you can tell from my comments it's a YES!! This book is worth that credit.
"What a ride...."
The growing love and suspense on the relationship between Korum and Mia.
Mia is my favorite character because you can see her changing from a timid girl into a strong willed woman. Even when she is afraid of Kormur, she still test him.
Korum, there is just something in the way that Kitty reads his parts that really "touches" you. I enjoyed the listening to Kitty throughout the entire book, and hope to hear more books narrated by her again.
I laughed, I cried, I felt happy and heart broken. There were times in which I was sitting here listening and was holding my breath. Complete emotional rollercoaster!
"One of my favorite books by Anna zaires"
I like either choice , but sometimes it was more convenient to just wear my headphones and listen .
I loved the entire plot!!
I like how her voice would change with the emotions in the story.
"Wow, this book kept me on the edge of my seat."
Deception, and Endless Love
When Korum gives her the chance to walk away.
We'll there are so many, but I guess the Krinar Fight Scene.
Yes, again when Korum gives her the choice to walk away.
Anna Zaire's second installment in the Krinar Series is a great addition to the series. Korum and Mia continue to fall deeper in love and further their trust of one another. But ...in the shadows an evil K plots to destroy their love by taking Mia for his own and end Korum once and for all. This book had me gripping my chair with action, and curling my toes during love scenes. Anna brings passion and suspense to the page. I absolutely loved it!
"Even better than the first!"
Loved it! The aliens technology is simply amazing and I really enjoyed seeing how they live in their colony. Zaires imagination is amazing. I also really liked how the relationship with Korum & Mia is developing. We get to see a different side to Korum and I love him all the better for it. I don't know if I fully trust him, but that just makes it even more interesting. Mia seems more mature than she was in the first book, and I could actually feel them growing closer together in this book. Their relationship is beyond hot, very sexual, and I can't wait to see what happens in book 3. There is a danger looming and I am very curious to see who this mysterious K is.
Still enjoying this series. So different from any other series I read and I can not wait to see how the story ends
