4 Stars/Orgasmic: "Marine Sergeant Ike Payne worked hard to earn her stripes. Now she will have to work even harder to keep them. Someone attempted murder on her ship and Ike must find the culprit out of 24,000 suspects. A partner might help her solve the case, and that was what she got in the form of Lieutenant Devon Henson. Whom was Ike kidding? Devon was so much more than a sounding board for her many hypothesis. He was candy for her eyes and temptation to her body.
Devon never expected his new partner was a gorgeous example of womanhood. They had a terrorist to find, not a comfortable bed. Devon did not know if he was up for the
search; he was too busy looking at Ike.
There is nothing like an adventurous, action-packed story told from a woman’s point of view.
An Ike Payne Adventure: For the Love of Payne
is filled with wonderful characters, but Ike is the one who had me enthralled and kept me turning the pages. Ike is perfect. She has a sense of duty, but is not hard nosed, as one might assume. There is a sensitive side to her that caused me to relate to her position as a marine sergeant and her desire to be a sensual woman. Ike is very aware of her sexuality. That made the sex in this novel outrageous and a turn on. Devon is interesting enough with his often clumsy behavior. That characteristic endeared him to me and made me wait on Ike to help him put everything back to right. When I first thought of a hero for Ike, Devon did not come to mind, but that is what makes him so special. He is different and therefore appealing. Overall, I believe
An Ike Payne Adventure: For the Love of Payne
is a good read that will leave anyone wanting more."

"For the Love of Payne is a
good beginning to what already appears to
be an intriguing series. I really liked
the character Ike and the more I read of
her the more I wanted to be her. She has a
position of power, she isn’t afraid to
embrace her sexuality, and best of all she
doesn’t feel the need to shave her legs or
pluck her eyebrows to get what she wants
when she wants it. Devon was so totally
not what I pictured for a match for Ike
that it made him that much more
intriguing. Melodee Aaron went against the
grain with that one and that shook things
up and added another twist to an already
twisting plot. The adventure was there and
so was the mystery. I enjoyed the side
characters and kept wondering why this
world seemed so familiar. That was when I
realized that I’d been here before. I have
read The Polyamorous Princess, also
by Ms. Aaron, also a good book, and it is
set in the same universe as the Ike
Payne Adventures series. This book was
a solid 4 Angels for me and I can’t wait
to get my hands on the other books in the
series." —Hayley, Fallen Angel
"As the MP in charge of security on His
Majesty’s Starship, Warren E. Boone,
Marine Sergeant Ikira “Ike” Payne commands
respect and authority. A typical Marine,
Ike is a dedicated, strong killing machine
willing to die to protect those she
serves. Yet as a woman, Ike is also lonely
and looking for companionship and although
she has sex, what she wants is a
When a terrorist attempts to kill the Wengley
Ambassador to Palea on the Boone, an
intelligence officer is called in to help
solve the crime and catch the shooter.
Many might have been upset that an
outsider was called in to help but not
Ike. She wants all the help she can get,
especially if it involves Lieutenant Devon
Henson. Something about the young officer
attracts her and if they can catch the
terrorists, they might just get the
opportunity to explore that attraction.
For the Love of Payne is a fast paced futuristic
tale with fantastic characters and a
twisting plot. From the Emperor and his
four wives to the strange and unusual
alien creatures, Ms. Aaron manages to
bring to life a whole new world aboard the
Starship Boone. Especially interesting was
Ike. At the beginning of the story, she’s
all bad-ass Marine but as the story
unfolds and her attraction and interest in
Devon grows, her feminine side begins to
emerge. She is a woman at the top in a
masculine field and has never felt the
urge or need to be feminine. Although
Devon is just as attracted to Ike as she
is to him, once she allows her “Ikira”
side to emerge, things just get better and
better. Their sexual escapades are
unbelievably hot, so be prepared! In
addition to all of that, there’s a little
mystery about the terrorists and the
shooting that will keep you guessing until
the end." —Georgia, Joyfully

When Ike got back to her office, a Lieutenant waited
to see her. She felt a quick jolt that startled her and stared
at him for a second too long. She waved at him. He followed
her into her office. She sat, looking at him for a moment. She
was not easily flustered and found her voice a little more
brusque than necessary. "Who are you, and what do you
"I'm Lieutenant Devon Henson from Intelligence.
Admiral Reeves placed me at your service."
As Ike looked him up and down a time or two, she
thought service might just be the operative word. Henson stood
a little taller than she, and he had good muscles, though not
like a bodybuilder. He looked to be maybe thirty or so and had
sandy brown hair, just a little on the long side. His pale
blue eyes were sharp and clear.
They stared at each other for a moment too long before
Ike dragged her gaze away deliberately. "Have a
seat." She reached across the desk and shook his hand.
"Officially, I'm Sergeant Ikira Payne, head of Security.
Everybody calls me Ike." Ike felt a chill run through her
as their hands touched.
"All right, Ike. I'm Devon, then." He seemed
to hesitate for a moment. "I'm kind of new at all this
security stuff, though. My main training is in
cryptography." He looked a lot more confident than he
"That's all right. I need someone who can sort
through the mess you Intelligence types call files. I need the
information faster than I can get it learning your system as I
He smiled a very nice smile. She glanced away for a
second to stop staring at his mouth. "That I can do for
you, Ike." She looked back and smiled in response.
"Good. Are you certified for a sidearm?"
"Me? Hell, no! The things scare me!"
Ike just stared. This was great. "We'll take care
of that. You may need one."
He looked puzzled. "I understood you found the
killer's body today."
"Attempted killer, and it wasn't him."
"How do you know?"
"Call it feminine intuition."
He smiled again. "I don't think I've ever known a
woman security director before."
She laughed. "Probably not. There are only six of
us in the Fleet."
"That's neat. So, what do we do first?"
She glanced at her watch. It was 1135. "We do
lunch first. After that, we'll start rattling the cage in
sickbay so we can talk to the Ambassador."
* * * *
As they walked to the mess hall for lunch, Devon
occasionally studied the interesting woman next to him. She
looked and acted like a Marine. Her walk steady, with measured
steps, her eyes moved constantly, watching the people around
her. She wore the fatigue uniform of a noncommissioned officer
and a formidable blaster on her right hip. Her pockets bulged
with things he couldn't see. A large knife rested in a sheath
on her right leg at the level of her calf.
Everything about Ike's appearance said she was all
business, but Devon sensed something else about her. In her
remarkable steel-blue eyes, he saw tenderness down inside. He
felt no surprise at that. He thought anyone who made a career
of being a cop must have a certain amount of empathy and
caring for people.
Ike was a beautiful woman. Her body was trim and firm,
no doubt from Marine exercises. When they shook hands, he
found her grip strong, and he saw the muscles in her arm
working. Her face was pretty, with a cute little nose. Devon
always liked long hair on a woman, but somehow, Ike's short
auburn hair looked great.
He glanced at her and his gaze moved down her body.
Her breasts, waist, and hips were well proportioned. He
watched her hips move as she walked.
She turned and caught him staring at her. "What
are you looking at?"
The last thing he wanted to do was to get this woman
angry. "Sorry. I was just wondering what you have in your
A small smile flitted across her face. "Right.
Just Marine toys." She reached into her left pants pocket
and pulled out a small grenade with a radiation hazard symbol
on the side. "See?"
The woman had nuclear devices in her pants. "I'll
bet you're a fun date."
She chuckled as she dropped the grenade back in her
pocket. "You have no idea."
As Ike removed his shirt, it occurred to her that
they'd not even seen each other nude. On the Observation Deck
today, she'd simply pulled up her skirt and his pants were
around his ankles. Other than having their shirts open, they
hadn't seen each other yet.
She ran her fingers across his chest and he shivered.
"Are you cold?"
"No, not at all."
"Good." She knelt and slipped his shoes and
socks off. She then reached up to undo his belt and pants and
let them slip to the floor, leaving him naked. She stood and
kissed him. "You look like I've dreamed you would."
"I hope that's a good thing."
"Very good. Would you like me to show you what
I'm wearing under this robe now?"
"Yes, but maybe I should sit down."
"Because if you're as beautiful with your clothes
off as you are with them on, I'll probably fall down."
"We'll see." She turned her back and let the
robe fall to the floor. Despite the sleepwear she had from the
mall, she'd worn nothing at all under the robe.
As she turned to him,
gasped. "My God, Ikira."
"You're amazing." Ike saw him try to sit
down, but he couldn't reach the bed with his hands. His gaze
moved over her body. He also had a growing erection.
"Let me help." She eased him to the bed and
helped him lie back on the pillows. His eyes never once left
her body. Ike knelt on the bed next to him. "I hope you
like what you see."
He opened and closed his mouth several times. "I
do like what I see very much."
She smiled at him. "I wish there was a word I
could apply to you. Handsome doesn't do the trick." She
felt a shiver shoot through her. "Maybe delicious."
She licked his chest and lay beside him. As they kissed, she
moved her hand down his stomach and touched his cock for the
first time. She smiled as she felt the hardness her simply
being nude and kissing him created. As they kissed, Ike again
could smell his aroma, masculine with a spicy overtone. It
made Ike's desire rise higher than it already was.
Pulling her lips from his, Ike licked his lips and up
the bridge of his nose, tasting the salty perspiration on his
skin. Ike pressed her lips to his again as she felt the
hardness of his dick press firmly against her. Ike also felt
her own spreading wetness. Keeping her lips pressed to his,
she mounted him and took his length into her all at once. She
gasped a little as the head of his cock rubbed firmly over her
cervix and rammed into the back of her pussy. She gyrated her
hips slowly and rhythmically as their kiss intensified.
In minutes, Ike felt herself nearing climax and
bounced her hips to his, never pulling her lips away. Her
orgasm thundered across her and she removed her lips from
's from fear she'd bite him as her body convulsed.
Ike collapsed forward onto his chest with his stiff
dick still buried in her pussy to the base. Her voice quivered
when she spoke. "Damn it."
kissed her ear. "Yeah." He rolled her and was
suddenly on top, thrusting slowly into her pussy as his cock
made smacking noises in her wetness with each slow stroke.
As on the Observation Deck, she felt herself fixated
on his eyes. Ike tried to hold herself from climaxing again
and she soon felt
tense and his thrusts become faster and harder. As he made a
final powerful thrust into her, they climaxed together, their
screams and moans blending in a harmony of passion.
removed his now semi-rigid cock from her and lay beside her.
He had a weak smile. "Now it's my turn to say damn
"Yeah." Ike turned to face him and touched
his face with her fingertips. They lay together, talking
quietly and staring at each other until Ike felt his dick
stiffening against her again. "I'd like to do something
for you that most men I've been with liked. There were a few
who didn't like it, and I don't want to do anything you don't
like or that hurts you."
He looked deeply into her eyes. "I trust
"I know that, but tell me if you don't like it or
if I hurt you."
He looked puzzled. "I will."
She positioned his hips on a pillow and knelt between
his spread legs. Retrieving a lubricant from the nightstand,
she applied it to her fingers and made slow, gentle circles
around his anus, applying the lubricant and relaxing him.
"I want to massage your prostate gland, and I'll put my
fingers in your ass to do that. If it hurts, tell me."
He nodded at her as she smiled and continued to press
ever harder on his opening. She gently slipped her index
finger in him just a little and he twitched. "Is this
"No. It was just a bit of a shock."
"All right, but tell me if it hurts." She
smiled. "Or if it feels good." She resumed working
her finger slowly and gently in his ass and she could feel him
relaxing. She could see his cock, stiff as steel and pointed
at the overhead.
After several minutes of working her finger in him,
she slowly inserted her middle finger, as well. She moved her
hand back and forth, penetrating deeper into his ass. When she
had both her fingers to the second knuckles in his ass, she
curled her fingers upward toward the base of his cock and felt
his soft, spongy prostate.
As Ike watched his face,
's eyes slowly closed as she gently rubbed his gland,
massaging the two lobes and tracing the cleft between them.
"Are you all right?"
"That feels amazing."
"Good." She continued to rub inside him,
applying more pressure and watching his reaction. "Most
men can cum from having this done. Would you like that?"
"Yeah." The rise and fall of his chest was
quick and shallow. She slowly but firmly moved her fingers
back and forth on his prostate, increasing her speed. He
moaned softly. Ike listened and watched to make sure they were
moans of pleasure and not pain. "God, that feels so
"Can you open your eyes?" He slowly opened
his eyes and his gaze locked to hers. "I'm glad you like
"Tell me if I hurt you." She rubbed harder
and faster. His ass clenched her fingers and he shook all
's voice sounded weak and shaky, trembling as much as his
body. "Yes, Ikira, yes! Faster!" Ike smiled at him
and moved her fingers faster and pressed harder. "Yes!
When he climaxed, his cum shot from the end of his
cock and splattered against his chest and stomach. Ike slowed
her movements and eased the pressure as he shook like an
earthquake. As she slowly removed her fingers from his ass, he
trembled and moaned, no longer able to hold his eyes open. Ike
leaned over him. She slowly licked his seed from his body.
When she kissed the head of his dick, he jerked like he'd been
