Strategic Entanglements is a work of science fiction and romance penned by author D. E. Knightley and forms the first book of the Kendra Veiss Series. The series contains explicit sex, violence, and language appropriate to the action taking place. In this first short, sharp adventure tale, we find ourselves in an alternate Earth known as Terra, where the Basuri DSS intelligence service monitors life and hopes that the wars of the past are long gone. But when DSS spy Kendra Veiss escapes a dangerous interrogation and finds that she has picked up a shadow – the handsome and dangerous Aran Reiner – an inner war begins between what her mind knows is sensible, and what her body is calling for.
This steamy science fiction romance is equal parts sizzle and speculative, setting a dangerous liaison in the midst of a clever espionage tale from the near future. Author D. E. Knightley crafts the central pair of characters well, allowing readers a close narration to get to Kendra’s inner thoughts and those temptations which are building the more time she spends with Aran. This tension is matched by the political and social tensions of the DSS and their enemies, and the new wars that seem to be verging in the wider world. Here, the narration takes sharp turns with excellent action description, juxtaposed but complementary to the love scenes that are interspersed with them. Overall, Strategic Entanglements is a 'badly behaved' romp for those who want sharp action sequences and powerful romance in one well-formed package.
