Cierra had no intention of joining the Volunteer Program, but when she kept getting flyers in the mail and her car broke down in front of their offices, she knew she had to join.  Ahket kidnapped her in a normal raid, but refused to ransom her back because of his own talent.

Naked is the latest in the Terran Times Second Wave series and showcases a different alien race that is compatible with the Terrans.  Both Cierra and Ahket had talents that pulled them together. 

Ahket refuses what is basically triple the amount of ransom for Cierra and gets punished for it even though Cierra wants to stay with him.  What follows was a slight surprise for Ahket’s people.  I loved Cierra because she knew exactly what she could get away with, but created some circumstances that benefited Ahket’s people greatly. 

The planet’s Avitar was an interesting character and the description the author gives of the planet takes right there.  Ahket’s mother makes a brief appearance at the end of the story.

Most of the stories in this series can be read alone, and this is one of them.  I am looking forward to more as the different worlds Ms. Grace creates, for the most part, are very interesting.
