Aria wins a trip to a luxury resort. There she meets other women who also won the travel package and expect to have some very sexy encounters. After taking the elevator to the VIP party, the group is told that they were transported to a spaceship. There she meets the hottest man -- or alien -- alive. He's Captain Tai Gaman and he tells her she's some kind of soul mate to their king. What's up with that? Is he telling the truth? But none of that matters anymore, cause now she's falling for him. H
Smut. Almost entirely smut. Alien abduction and menage smut.

There is a small bit of a story arc, and a little hint of characters, but the focus is clearly the sizzle with (gentle and caring but horny) alien abductors.

Not bad if one is looking for a nicely explicit and erotic alien abduction and menage fantasy, complete with a minor trick of alien anatomy (which seemed out of place to me but that many readers might appreciate).

While I appreciate some explicit smut, there was just enough interesti

I was actually surprised that Opal Carew is now writing paranormal romance. I enjoy reading this genre and I think this book by Opal Carew was very good. Her contemporary romances are ok and they seem to be all alike - lots of sex and no plot. For this book, I noticed a different writing style, very different tone compared to her contemporary romances, which I like.

My biggest complaint with this book is that it was way too short. The author has a very good idea. This could have been a rich emotion and steamy hot story. It was steaming hot but there wasn't enough development of the main characters. No look into their thoughts and desires and needs. The author did leave this open to have other books and I hope she develops them in greater detail.
No plot or character development - a real wasted opportunity, since the premise was promising. I found myself more concerned for the cat left behind than the characters, which was not a good sign.
Plenty of steam though.
I think I bought this really cheap on Amazon (maybe it was free). Anyway, it was just ok.

I guess I found it irritating that there wasn't more to it in the way of world-building. Could have been a much more interesting story.

Too short story, no plot and no character development or world building whatsoever. If you want to read a book full of hot alien sex, threesomes and nothing else then this is a book for you. I hated it!

If your looking for a quick hot steamy read do not look any further. Not much story too it but it is a nice diversion with well written love scenes.

3.5 stars... totally earned 4 stars right up until the strange feats of anatomy... that just made it a little too unrealistic for me. (since i'm a biology major it kinda hurt to read it honestly)

Opal really disappointed me with this one. Usually her books are hot with a good story. This one was none of the above. Skip if you want to keep your sanity.

It was ok. I think it was worth .99 but not $2.10.
