To continue her father's life's quest, Tru Van Dye had to leave the insular colony of Majj scientists where she was raised. She had to find Rayce Coburne. Yet the virtual-reality program she acquired to gird herself against the man's touch, his innuendoes, his alien maleness was for naught--his presence overwhelmed her. With Rayce, all Tru's clever plans, her control, everything she knew was coming...

...that's how Rayce Coburne felt. He'd tried to give up treasure acquisition. It wasn't the danger that put him off; he despised dealing with icy customers like the Majj. And Tru Van Dye was worse than the usual-a prissy woman who would blackmail him with all his hopes and dreams. Still, while she was smarter than he, there was a way he could fight back: a kiss. A kiss a day was the perfect strategy. Unless the spinning he felt inside was Tru unwrapping his heart.

Tru leaves the only home she has ever known to continue in her father’s work, to find the ultimate historic treasure known to the galaxy. However she must go ask Rayce’s help, a man who hates the Majj, scientists and part of the institute that she is from. When Tru comes to Rayce for his assistance at first he hates the idea despite the amount of funds he would be paid, he despises the Majj and their selfish views, but knowing how much he could use the money, he agrees with one condition upon Tru, that she agrees to a kiss every day. At first Tru is petrified at the thought, not having positive experiences with intimacy, but agrees knowing that she has no choice. So Tru and Rayce begin a journey of alifetime and as the passion between them escalates to a burning flame, and even though they tell themselves that its only temporary, they each wonder if they could one another up?

The Hero (Rayce Coburne)
Rayce,  has always had a bitterness that leans towards the Majj scientists, believing that their greed is the result of his sister dying a horrible death, and him feeling helpless knowing that there was nothing that he could do for her. Then Tru comes to him in search of a treasure that could be the means in which he would never struggle in finances and be free from debtors. However there is something much more important he finds in this journey with Tru, and that is finally being able to heal from past wound and finding a woman that could be his mate…

The Heroine (Tru Van Dye)
Tru, has always dedicated her life to her fathers work and being a part of the Majj Institute, thinking they could do no wrong. But when she meets up with Rayce, and they journey together in search of a treasure, she learns many truths about herself and everyone she knows that will change her life. Tru is full of courage, passion and aches to find a place to call ‘home’, not knowing that with Rayce she could find everything she could ever need.

My Thoughts 
When I first heard of this author it was from a fellow author and I think the review might of been this book as well, and I just loved the sound of it I went to check to see if they had this author at the library and I was thrilled that they did so I got a couple of the books in the series. I have to say that I have missed reading sci fi romance and I am so glad that I started reading Unraveled. What we have in this story is a tale of two people that may seem so different from each other in the beginning but as the story progresses we see that they are more than perfect for each other. Tru is innocent and filled with a inner passion that just wants to get out but has been treated badly in the past and has a hard time with trust. Rayce, stills feels the deep loss of his sister and hates Majj, and at first he despises Tru, but he starts to see that she is nothing like them, for she is tender and caring . I loved this tender picture that C.J. Barry has created here, and such a wonderful read filled with adventure, romance and witty repatore that will leave you thirsty for more!!! A Treasure!

My Favorite Quote 
She felt Coburne’s hand on her arms just as she exited the salon. Effortlessly, he spun her around to face him and pinned her to the rough outside wall of the saloon. Before she could protest, his mouth covered hers with a scorching, staggering kiss that made her knees buckle. No man had ever kissed her that way-all wicked and decadent-putting his whole being into one, sole purpose. So, this was how it felt to be seduced by a rogue. No wonder women fell at his feet.
