One hundred and fifty years ago, Warrior Jovan of the Six Saviors realized he had a gift: the ability to feel emotions through touch. Over the years, the gift has intensified allowing him to hear others thoughts, and this uncontrolled skill has forced him to keep his distance from both humans and those of his race. He fears the impact on his sanity if he doesn’t.
Liberty, an SR44 female has come to Earth by a set of circumstances beyond her control. Born into a life of servitude on SR44, she is alone, afraid, and stumbling her way through learning the customs and language of her new home on Earth. When Jovan meets Liberty, it becomes clear that they are of the same species, and Jovan takes Liberty under his wing, despite his commitment to himself to limit interaction with others.
As Liberty reveals the reasons for her coming to Earth, it becomes apparent that the Six Saviors are in danger, not only from the FBI, but also from those who have journeyed to Earth with Liberty, and they are seeking revenge. Jovan must quickly learn to control his gift, and Liberty is the only one who can help him. As they deal with danger from all sides, Jovan and Liberty must find a way to compromise on the lives they desire, or they will be forced to go their separate ways.

I was so excited to have the chance to be a part of Carly Fall's book tour for the latest in the Six Savior series, see at the end of 2011 or beginning of 2012 I won a copy of The Light Within Me in a blog hop. I have to admit I am a closet sci-fi romance geek and I fell in love with the six sexy aliens here from SR44.
With the gift of empathy Jovan is finding it harder to be around people including the other men on his team and there mates. Liberty is part of a group of refugees from SR44, when Jovan steps into help prevent Liberty from being assaulted he finds that he feels the need to protect her and takes her in.
I love the way that Ms. Fall has created a world where aliens are responsible for protecting us from escaped criminals from their world and that those criminals are some of the worst men in history (Saddam Hussein, Jeffrey Dahmer, ect...) The six saviors as they were dubbed at the beginning of their mission are sexy warriors that kick butt and have hearts of gold. These men are uber alpha males, Jovan is no different he finds when he starts to fall for Liberty. I loved seeing Liberty's self confidence bloom so that she was willing to go for what she wants and stand up for herself.
The sexual tension is ratcheted up when it is revealed that Liberty is Noah's half sister and Jovan has to decide if it is worth the risk of upsetting Noah.
Love this book, love the series, I can't wait to see what happens next.
He held on to Liberty a minute longer, then gently set her down. She beamed up at him, and something within him shifted. He realized he wasn’t looking at Liberty as Noah’s half-sister or an SR44 female born into servitude. He was seeing her as she was—sweet, pretty, little Liberty with the laugh of an angel, the one being on Earth who could help him. And he was seeing her for who she was, not some twisted fantasy of her swinging around on a stripper’s pole.
This was not good. He felt his SR44 male begin to grumble, wanting the female in front of him.
Taking a step back, he cleared his throat. “Thank you, Liberty,” he said quietly. “Thanks for helping me get a lasso on this thing.”
“Of course, Jovan,” she said softly. A slight blush crossed her cheeks and she looked away.
The temperature in the room spiked, and Jovan felt a sexual tension between them spark and crackle.
No, this was not good at all.
“I’d better get upstairs and meet with Noah and the others,” he said, stepping around her. Yes, it was time to get the fuck out of here before he did something stupid.
As he waited for the elevator, he heard the door to the quarters shut, and Liberty came to stand next to him.
“You can’t go with me to the meeting, Liberty,” he said, looking down at her.
She met his eyes. “I had no intention of going with you, Jovan. Am I not free to move about this dwelling by myself?”
He heard the challenge and indignation in her voice, and he liked it. Over the past two days, the subservient Liberty was starting to be replaced by this little female who was looking at him like she dared him to tell her to stay, and she would rain down the consequences of the wrong answer.
“Of course. My apologies.”
As they stepped into the elevator together, Jovan felt the small space getting smaller. Out of the corner of his eye, he watched her look up at the numbers lighting up above. Dressed in a pair of jeans he had bought her and a pink t-shirt she had borrowed from Faith, she looked troubled.
“Penny for your thoughts,” Jovan said. Not that he should care, but he did.
“Penny for your thoughts. It means I want to know what you’re thinking.”
A sly grin played on her lips. “Oh, Jovan, it will cost you much more than a penny. Thoughts are precious and shouldn’t be sold so cheaply.”
