He is determined to save her, whether she likes it or not!

Bucking family tradition, Dyre is determined to become his planet’s first hero, even if it breaks his mother’s heart. He sets out on numerous quests to save the universe, however his altruism never seems to turn out quite as expected. Who knew doing the right thing was so hard?

In between saving those who don’t want his help—and the chaos that follows—he rescues a damsel in distress. She doesn’t appreciate his heroic abduction, and even worse, once Dyre gets to know the outspoken human, he entertains less than noble thoughts about ravishing her.

It takes only a couple of comical mishaps, some hot kisses and danger for Dyre and his human damsel Betty to discover their happily ever after—and thank the stars for a heroine who ends up saving this hero, and the galaxy, from his chivalrous side.

He’ll do anything to be her knight in purple armor.

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.

 

Author Bio:

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

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.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

  • LOL that sounds awesome Sophia! I think I’m already half way to smitten with him. He sounds like a cute one 🙂

    • He was a sweetie! I loved how he was oblivious to how others thought of his ‘heroism’ and he just wanted to do the right thing. They were a good team even though she took more persuading.

  • I do love Eve’s sense of humor, her FUC series is hilarious too!

    • I laughed through that series too. I still need to catch up on all of them. I’ve read a bit of all her series it seems and have yet to finish one.

  • Heather Fortman

    So glad she’s got another book out! I’ve been hooked since the first one and anxiously awaiting each one there after! When I get stuck in a rut and can’t find anything new to read, her sexy purple guys always lift me out of my funk as I re-read each and every story so far!

    • They do have that light and fun quality to them, Heather!

      • Heather Fortman

        Without a doubt, Sophia! I remeber all the weird looks I got from hubby while reading the first book, each time I would start laughing and snickering!

        • Oh, odd looks from hubby are par for the course in my house. Haha!

          • Heather Fortman

            He seriously should be used to it from me.. even more so the spontanious shouts at characters. Then again I giggle like mad when I hear him shouting at things when he’s playing his online tanks game!

  • Samaris Creech

    Love your writing Eve thank you
    for the opportunity 🙂

  • Mariana_BookTravels

    Another great Eve Langlais series. Just started this one, but I love the fun parts

    • That’s what I like about her stuff too, Mariana. It’s fun!

  • I love Eve’s books! I even have one of her F.U.C. t-shirts that I wear to the grocery store! (much to my daughter’s mortification) I haven’t tried this series, though. It just seemed a little too far out there. Well, damned if this post didn’t change my mind. I can’t wait to get me some deep purple lovin’.

    • Haha! Sebella, you are a gal after my own evil heart. I love embarrassing the kiddies.
      Her purple mercenary aliens and her shifter guys are a lot alike as are the feisty human gals they love. New setting, but same fun passionate romps at least that’s my take.

  • I have the first book in the series…smh, yep another one I haven’t read, lols. Seems I’ve got to get to it 😀

    • Don’t feel bad. I’ve only read this one. I seem to hop all around when it comes to Eve’s series. I think the FUC shifters are the only ones I’ve read in order.

      • I think I’m going to use May as the month to catch up on my TBR list…

        • Think Spring and all that Spring cleaning of the bookshelves? Good plan!

          • yep…thats what I’m thinking. It should drop my list considerably 😉

  • Froggarita
