Bella decides to take an assignment on a planet where faces are covered because she wants to be accepted for her mind, not her looks.  Lord Akking wants Bella after he meets her and maneuvers to get her assigned to him as his assistant.

Object is the 23rd book in the Terran Times Second Wave series.  This was different as most people rely on their looks, but Kloa requires all public workers, and the aristocracy, to wear masks to cover their faces.  The court uniform also has garments that hide the shape of their bodies. The history about how this came about is interesting and Bella gets a personal tour, which includes the original looks of the Kloa.

Lord Akking has a club called Face-to Face, where traders and alien workers go so they can talk and discuss business among themselves without the masks.  I thought this was an interesting concept. The staff of the club was great and Bella realized that she could be friends with some of them.  I laughed at some of the expectation the staff had about Bella and Lord Akking, especially since everyone could see they had some intense chemistry. 

There are some interesting things in the future of this series based on the epilogue.  Most of the stories can be read as standalone books.
