An alien sci-fi romp that had me grinning, sighing, groaning and wishing I could find my own huge purple alien hero.
Dyre left his home world to seek out adventure and live according to his own rules for being a hero instead of the usual mercenary. He finds being a hero a tough thing to achieve and no one ever seems to be grateful for his help. So he accidentally burned down some people’s forest and sacred trees, he got the dragon, didn’t he? And what’s with the feisty female he has just rescued from being sacrificed to a huge disgusting beast of an alien? She has the audacity to say that she had it handled. He finds the little barbarian female from earth just too cute for words and decides he’ll stick with her and her companion for a while in a continuing effort to aid the damsel in distress.
Betty eyes up the big purple alien who ‘rescued’ her in the middle of her acquisition mission and insists on coming with her and helping her further. Is he for real? Surely Dyre plans to get something for his effort. But, she’ll go with it all and wait her big chance. She has her own ideas of a heroic mission to accomplish and if along the way she can see what all the fuss is about mating then so be it.
The plot was hilarious from beginning to end. There is adventure and hot sexy times, but underlying it all is the fun. I love the idea of a guy trying his hardest to earn the title of hero and end up doing the opposite with his help and it was great to have the human rescuing the alien for once. Betty is the cynical, feisty, and capable one although she too gets herself into lots of trouble because she doesn’t take kind advice about safety well and doesn’t take warnings seriously. In the end, they both have to be heroes to make it through. Their back and forth dialogue cracked me up because at first they really didn’t understand each other’s thought processes. Their attraction came quick, but it developed into a relationship and partnership which was nice. Not to say, they weren’t taking advantage of flat surfaces both vertical and horizontal.
All together, it’s just a riot of a book in the Alien Abduction series. It can be read as a stand alone, but it does have loose ties to the rest of the series. Fans of light sci-fi romance should give this one a spin.
Thanks to the author for sending me a copy of her book in exchange for my honest review thoughts.

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens lol.
Be warned, I do have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I like strong alpha males, naked chests and shifters. Lots of shifters. In fact, you’ll notice most of my multi partner stories revolve around great, big, overprotective shifters who just want to please their woman. I am also extremely partial to aliens, you know the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure of course.
I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.
