Lucy Soren never expected to live through an alien attack. Months later, her nightmares won't let her forget the pain she suffered, or her strange attraction to the man who saved her from certain death.

Sentry Solomon Dusk never wanted to heal a mortal woman, but he can't forget Lucy's bravery or beauty. Even though he vowed to never again fall in love, Lucy attracts him like no other woman ever has before.

When the alien Spiders again slip past the Sentries' defenses, Solomon's only thought is to protect the woman he refuses to love. Lucy's only hope is to run from the danger to her heart. Unfortunately, the fate of the planet rests on their ability to work together. Fear of commitment has no place when love is the only thing that will save them from annihilation.

A world where sexy aliens protect humanity from the evil metallic spiders!

Lucy Soren can't sleep anymore. Every time she tries, she ends up dreaming about being attacked by spiders and saved by a sexy alien. She can't forget how they felt entering her arm and almost ending her life. When Solomon shows up again in her life, she gets confused. As much she is attracted to him, she is afraid he will always bring spiders with him. Will she be able to follow her destiny, even though it may be filled with evil enemies?

Solomon Dusk takes his role as a sentry of Earth very seriously. When he previously healed a human woman, he threw caution to the wind and invest all his powers to the success of the mission. Now, he is back to normal, and that means avoiding humans and just doing his job. One minor problem, he can't forget Lucy and deep down he knows the truth. Is he brave enough to fulfill his destiny? Or will the echoes of pain from the past render him helpless?

DUSK is great second installment for the Stronghold series. Lucy and Solomon have an easier path to love than Greyson and Eva, but they have an even bigger evil threat to deal with to save humanity. The spiders are getting more intelligent and better prepared to invade Earth and the sentries are starting to suspect they are dealing with a bigger evil than they have ever imagined. A newfound knowledge may be the key to make stronghold better and stronger. Will all the sentries follow their course?

Ms. Leaf once again brings a fast-paced read with a strong plot concept and great character building. The passionate scenes are hot and Solomon with all his shyness and lovable features turn out to be a very kinky alien.

My one problem with book two is how fast the couple became a pair, even though they didn't have much previous knowledge of each other like Greyson and Eva had. I felt Solomon has it too easy, while Greyson really worked for his mate.

I'm imagining that book three is going to be Isaac's since Bruno is not ready yet for his falling! I'm really looking forward to it. I find all the brothers interesting in their own unique way.

You MAY read this book because you like paranormal romances; you SHOULD read this book because you enjoy a sexy read; but you MUST read this book if you are looking for mouthwatering aliens hell bent on defending Earth from annihilation!
