A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint...

Earth girls are never easy. But they're worth it.

Bakery owner Annabelle Sparks' business is booming ever since she won reality TV's Cupcake Wars. The one thing deflating her happy soufflé? The extremely sexy Kaden Chance only sees her as a best friend-and Annabelle wants so much more. After waiting a year for him recognize their chemistry, she's giving up and dating other people.

What she doesn't know is Kaden's heart doesn't actually beat. He's not human. Heck, he's not even from Earth. To retain his intergalactic immunity, no one can ever know he is an extraterrestrial. But when Annabelle starts dating, something strange happens to Kaden's unmoved heart: it begins to beat. Now he faces an impossible choice-tell Annabelle the truth and be deported-or lose his last chance at love.

Under His Skin is a sexy and sweet paranormal romance that will keep you up all night and make you remember the alienated TV Show, Roswell, that stole our heart.

The story is told from two different point of view: Annabelle Sparks and Kaden Chance's POV, the two main characters in this story. When the story started I thought I would end up bored, because what you read from one character was repeated from the point of view of the other one and, well, to me that's a bit annoying if it's not told graciously. However, this pattern is not followed long and the story starts gaining interest.

Annabelle is a sweet character, the friend everyone wants to have, but it's also strong and willing to fight for herself. Kaden's a good character although at times a bit frustrating. His actions sometimes make no sense and I felt like he was playing with my emotions as well as Annabelle's without meaning to, to create drama.

The plot was a good one, although to my taste was a bit tame in the action department. However, the story has a solid background, the alien story, the FBI, Annabelle and Kaden's relationship... and that was what made this story a good one.

Under His Skin is a good read for all Roswell fans out there. With the characteristics of a Romance novel, with sexy scenes and sweet moments, and the best side of reading an alienated story, Stacey's new story will make you wish for the next book.
