My name is Zoe McKinley. I have a boring life, an awful job, and a boss that throws staplers at my head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by Aliens?
Being dragged through a mirror, naked and screaming, onto an extraterrestrial ship was bad. Finding out I had been sold to a huge alien male who looks like the Devil was worse. But learning he wanted to trade me to an intergalactic petting zoo was the worst of all!
Now I'm whizzing through the galaxy with a robot butler, a trio of nib-nibs (they're like tiny green monkeys) for pets, and one huge, muscular, and very grumpy alien. The clothing they gave me shows all my lady-bits, the food-sim makes lemon pie that tastes like sauerkraut, and Sarden, my captor, is too hot to stay mad at, even if he is a jerk.
In fact, I think I might be falling for him.
What's a girl to do? It's all in a day's work when you've been... Abducted.

Review

Honestly, I picked this up because I enjoyed the Kindred series. I was hoping this would be another kick ass alien series where the women end up being mated to other species. In a way, it was. The heroine gets abducted because the hero chose her out of an alien mate index lineup. She was supposed to be traded to another alien being in exchange for the hero’s sister’s freedom. However, they fall in love on their way to another alien planet.

All in all, this formula is a winner when it comes to sci fi romance. My issue is that the aliens sounded too human here. Sarden talked like a human. His sister acts like a human. If it weren’t for the world-building and the terminologies as well as the depicted settings on each scene, I would have said that this is a contemporary romance. I guess that’s why I didn’t enjoy this as much as the kindred series.

Still, I think that fans of Ms. Anderson, the Kindred series, and the sub genre as a whole will enjoy this book and the rest of the AMI series. Sadly, this wasn’t a hit for me.

About Evangeline Anderson

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.
