After Melia finds some kidnapped victims, she accidentally finds herself bound to Dornin-tah, the oldest son of the family she found. Dornin-tah didn’t realize that the beautiful woman he saw on his way to his family didn’t have the thick skin that would prevent scratching until it was too late.  He finds he doesn’t mind at all that she is now his.

Manifest is the latest story in the Terran Times Second Wave series.  I really like this series as the author has come up with some very interesting alien life forms and customs that help keep the various stories fresh.  One constant is the Terran, or someone from Earth, that is willing to leave to start a new life which may include being a mate to one of those aliens.

In this case, Melia had no intention of doing nothing but her job as a custom agent.  She was one on earth, but wanted to go to the stars.  Melia has a sixth sense about shipments being contraband, which led her to finding the tah family.  Even as her life changes because of Dornin-tah, her life is threatened.

Melia and Dornan become bonded and have some explosive chemistry.  I loved some of the reactions Melia had to some of the customs she had to endure when she was introduced to the Adru-Skari society.  Some of Dornin’s family’s reactions were funny as well.

Ms. Grace has a knack for transporting you into the various worlds she has created.  As I read more of the Terran Times Second Wave series, I look forward to future stories.
