Nothing says holidays like a purple alien set on acquiring his own gifts off the wish list. The only trouble is that Vhyl has trouble determining just which gift is the more important when his hunt for a priceless artifact leads him to a sassy, sensual barbarian alien female who doesn’t seem all that impressed with his big bad rep. Jilly went from alone at Christmas and looking a foreclosure and eviction in the eye to going on the run with a virile, arrogant purple alien warrior who is reluctant to get into the Christmas spirit. In the end, she must decide to go with him for further adventures into the unknown with no guarantees or stay with what she knows even if it feels empty and lonely without Vhyl.
I laughed so hard at times as I read this hilarious sixth installment in the alien abduction series. While the big holiday reunion at the end might be more poignant if the previous five installments were read, it is not essential that a person has read any of them to appreciate this scream of a story. Personally, I have several of the earlier books to read still and I did just fine with the story.
Okay, so it’s not just funny, there’s quite a bit more this story offers. There’s a bit of excitement because the government tracked Vhyl’s landing and are after him, there is a rival seeking to acquire the artifact that is hidden in Jilly’s home, there are some passionate moments and also tender moments between Vhyl and Jilly too. But, fine, yes, its a sexy, sci-fi romance romp that this author excels at and staged against the backdrop of Christmas.
[quote]Odd how his past studies of the barbarians on Earth never properly conveyed how attractive some of them were. Perhaps her suggestion of abduction and probing should make my list of things to do while planet-side. Sure there were laws against meddling with humans. And, yes, it could cost him his life if caught or discovered. Danger? Law breaking? Wild sex with a new species? Things were looking more and more promising. Loc. 11% Vhyl, Holiday Abduction[/quote]
This was a nice bit of holiday sass and fun and I would heartily recommend it for anyone looking for a quick, light-hearted, but sensual sci-fi romance.
My thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
