Publisher's Summary

She'll do anything to free her sister and save the Earth from invasion, even if she's blackmailed into stealing sacred alien artifacts...and becomes the prey of the dark, deadly warrior sent to hunt her down.

Special Forces Space Marine Lara Traynor wants to save her sister and her planet from annihilation by the deadly insectoid Kantos. Earth's Space Corps give her one option: steal three gems sacred to the Eon Warriors. Lara has never failed a mission and she doesn't plan to start now. What she doesn't expect is the big, hard-bodied warrior the Eon sent to stop her.

Security Commander Caze Vann-Jad was born and raised to be the best Eon warrior in the empire. Honed by the military academy, his years as a stealth agent, and by his hard warrior father, he has never failed. He knows one weak, inferior Terran is no match for him. But when he finds himself face to face with the tough, skilled Lara, he realizes he's underestimated the female warrior.

When they are attacked by a Kantos kill squad, it soon becomes clear that the Kantos are planning something far darker and dangerous. Caze and Lara are forced to change their dangerous battle of wits and skill into a fierce battle for survival. Neither of these fighters believe in love, but on the trail of a stolen gem, they will ignite an unstoppable desire, and discover that not only are their lives at stake, but their hearts as well.

Great second book in series!

I’m really enjoying this Anna Hackett audiobook series! The heroine is a tough kick-ass soldier who is tasked by Earth Space Command to steal the three sacred gems of the Eon people. She’s pretty successful until she gets to the third gem and she’s caught by an Eon warrior who has been tracking her. They fight off a bunch of Kratos bug aliens and there’s a lot of action. They start to fall for each other and there are a couple hot sexy scenes. Great ending and can’t wait till the next book. Narration was excellent.

Action packed

This book has so much ch action in it; not a dull moment anywhere; as far fetched as it was to have Lara besting Kaze was irrational; their interactions was interesting. I liked the back and forth and both being placed in difficult situations. The books have a familiar thread that keeps the storyline going; and is needed to keep building and expanding. Narrator does a good job with characters and sound affects. Keeps me listening to the series; not to mention the hot models of men of the cover!

All good

I have really been enjoying this series so far. Plenty of action, adventure and of course romance. The sex scenes are enticing and not excessive. I like a romance that is not totally all about the romance. The two main characters are likable. The narrator is excellent; she doesn’t just simply read the story but acts the story.

Great physical descriptions!!

Anna Hackett has the fantastic ability to tell a good story! Lara and Caze’s enemies to lovers story begins with the theft of 3 jewels so that Lara may save her sister. Unfortunately for her, the mission has changed unbeknownst to her and she’s now forced to depend on the enemy. Although they are on opposite sides, their attraction to one another is instant and after some time admiration overcomes any sense of trepidation thereby developing into full blown love. Vivienne Leheny continues to do an amazing job of narrating!! The physical descriptions used allow you to visualize it in your mind! Looking forward to more of this series!!

Strong narration and story

I love the adventure in this story. The strength of the characters both physically and mentally is phenomenal.
Lara and Caze also turn up the heat in the bedroom.
The narrator makes the male voices so well that it almost seemes like a male is actually speaking at times.

And it just keeps getting better and better.

Touch of Eon is Book #3 of the Eon Warriors Series. This Series is one of my all time Fav SciFi Romance Series to date. There are so many awesome action scenes, scifi aspects, and scenes full of 'sassiness'. Highly highly recommended.

Keeps getting better

Second in the series, Touch continues the theme of a strong woman who is just as much a warrior as the hero. Big sister, Lara, is sent to steal from the Eon Empire and meets her match in Caze. These two have chemistry that is off the charts and like Eve (Lara's sister from Edge of Eon) Lara can give as good as she gets. The action is fast, the down time is steamy and we are shown a bit more of what the bad guys are working for. As always, Vivienne Leheny does a marvelous job bringing the story to life, giving each character an individual voice. Great book. Enjoy!

The Book

Oh Wow! Anna Hackett has done it again! I absolutely loved this action packed and steamy Sci-Fi Romance, but if you have a thing about bugs....

'Touch of Eon', the second book in the Eon Warriors series picks up the story of Space Corps Special Forces Space Marine Lieutenant Lara Traynor that began towards the end of book one, 'Edge of Eon' and is a terrific addition to Anna Hackett's new series. Action packed and edgy with humour and steam, this terrific sci-fi adventure once again demonstrates why her amazing imagination and story telling abilities have made her one of my all-time favourite authors, no matter what genre she's writing in. But, I'll warn you now, if you have a thing about bugs, you may want to start reading this early in the day, with lots of light....

Like her younger sister Eve, tough Space Marine Lara has essentially been blackmailed into what, at first glance, has all the hallmarks of a suicide mission. In short, enter Eon space, where Terrans are persona non-grata, and steal their three sacred stones from temples on different planets and hold them hostage in order to get help from the Eon in their impending war with the insectoid Kantos. Yep, not really the best way to go about it, but so far, the Space Corps 'powers that be' haven't exactly demonstrated any form of higher intelligence and whoever cooked up this particular strategy of asking for help should be sacked - for rank incompetence. But thanks to the successful outcome of Eve's mission, the Eon are aware of the plan and have sent the Security Commander of the Desteron, Caze Vann-Jad to try and catch her, and he almost managed it but the slippery woman got away from him. Now he's angry and even more determined, almost has her again on Thalla, but the Kantos want the stones too and have set a trap....

I absolutely loved this terrific story with it's action, adventure and even some steamy bits. It's humorous and downright laugh out loud funny in places with a hunkalicious hero and feisty heroine who strike sparks off each other and have chemistry you can almost feel as they work together against the Kantos, but there are parts of this book that made my skin crawl, and I don't have a thing about bugs! In places there were scenes so intense they had me holding my breath as our heroes battled to escape or just simply survive, places I was on the edge of my seat rooting for the good guys and places that had me twitching to get away and trying to force the characters to run. Phew! By the time I got to the end, I was emotionally drained and desperate for the happily ever after... Thankfully, I got it! But then I always do with Anna Hackett's books. There are no cliff-hangers here, although there is the beginning of the next story near the end of the book and I can't wait to read it. I've given 'Touch of Eon' 5 spectacularly well-earned stars and a place on my 'rescue if the house is burning down' list. I'm also pretty sure this book will be a permanent resident on my 'read again' list.

The Audio

I got this as an ebook when it was first published, and I'll freely admit that I'm totally addicted to this series. I've read it a few times since then, but I now have intermittent problems with my eyes, so I've turned to audio books to fill my need to re-read my favourites. I did try audio books a few years ago, but the narration was so bad, even dreadful, that I gave up on them for a while, however, Anna Hackett seems to get significantly better narrators than some I've listened to and Vivienne Leheny, the narrator of this book is pretty good, actually, one of the best I've heard. She seems to understand the all action, gritty nature of both the characters and the story, maintaining the edginess to the very end. She really is very good, I wasn't disappointed in any way. Having listened to the first book in the series and been really impressed, I got all the other books in the series that are available as audio versions to back up my kindle versions, just so I don't get withdrawal symptoms when I can't read them. This is my review of the second book in the series. The audio versions also have the added bonus of allowing me to do other things whilst listening. I find I listen a lot more than I read these days and have already listened to this one several times since getting it. I was lucky enough to get a free code for this audio book, and as I had already posted an honest review of the ebook several years ago, I decided to update that review with my personal opinion of the audible narration, especially as I have been so disenchanted by audio books in the past.

Brilliant

This is the story of Special Forces Space Marine Lara Traynor and Security Commander Caze Vann-Jad. Lara has been sent to steal sacred alien artifacts of the Eon empire and Caze has been sent to stop her but, Lara doesn't trust him when he tells her that her sister Eve is in fact safe and mated to War Commander Davion Thann-Eon who she was sent to abduct. What follows is a tantalising game of cat and mouse with Lara getting the upper hand over Caze at almost everly turn but, when things go from bad to worse they will end up fighting together and the chemistry between them is off the charts to say the least. This story had me laughing one minute and gasping the next, it is full of action and humour and sexual chemistry that is sizzling. I highly recommend this audio book and the others in the series as well. I am off to start book 3 and very much looking forward to it.
