Apparently she doesn’t know of his reputation…or doesn’t care.
Intrigued by her fearless nature—and her luscious cocoa skin—this acquisition expert can’t resist stealing a kiss. But before he can take more, his enemy arrives to stake a claim.
It seems Vhyl isn’t the only one interested in Jilly’s treasure—and Jilly herself. On the run not only from Earth forces but his enemies too, they must fight to survive and evade capture.
However, he can’t escape the effect the human has on him.
In the end, Vhyl has to make a choice—Jilly or the priceless treasure he came for?
ReviewAnother purple mercenary story by Eve Langlais!! Yippee!
In Holiday Abduction, Vhyl is an acquisitions specialist. Not a thief.
Jilly is the human who is in possession of an artifact Vhyl wants. And, like all good acquisition specialists from Aressotle, what he wants, he gets.
This is a fabulously funny novella for the Christmas season with another one of Eve's hunky purple dudes. I love these guys! Ever since meeting Tren in Accidental Abduction, I haven't been able to get enough of these aliens' sense of humour, as dry as it is, and the cultural differences between the characters. There's even a bonus bit at the end as an extra bit of back story which will have you happily chuckling too.
Each chapter is headed with a piece of wisdom from Jilly's Grandma or Vhyl's Acquisition guide or a piece of his wisdom. I bugged the hell out of my non-book-loving partner with these headers (and other parts of the book) and even made him laugh (that's no mean feat, let me tell you)
A must for lovers of Eve's work.
A definitely must-try for people new to her writing style.
