Sometimes love knocks softly...and sometimes it breaks down your door.

Anne's morning starts like any other normal day--and ends in a race for her life. The surprise that interrupts her regular date with a latte looks a lot like Frankenstein, except this monster is for real. And it chases her straight into the arms of two mouthwatering hunks who whisk her away from everythi

I did not finish this one. It is straight menage m/f/m and the guys had some minor early jealousy issues because they had to share that instantly turned me off. Coupled with the alien/sci-fi plot, I was just not into it enough to finish it.

I love Anya's writing style. There is not much to say but story was very exciting. İ likes how story forming, but i must confess i dont care about how "i love you"s are used so genereous.
Van and Caleb are, if you will alien, in their world there is a femele famine and The Oracle chooses some wimen from earth who will be perfect match and bring girl children for these men.
Anne is one of them Caleb and Van thakes her from earth and bring her to their world.İf they did not she will be killed by gu

Another awesome fun read

to first think she (Anne) was delusional, and/or in a coma.with her body lying somewhere else, this book eventually got a little kinky. But it was not a headlong rush into instant arousal, it was fun to read with a funny, well put together back story. I would recommend this book to anyone (over 18 of course).
Quick read set in a unique world! So hope more stories set here!

a very interesting book, i loved it, my first of its kind!
While Anya Bast's Wicked Enchantment was one of my top surprise pleasure reads so far this year and totally turned me on to Anya Bast as an author, Taken, the short erotic paranormal romance didn't quite do it for me.

Whether due to the limiting nature of the length of the story (it's quite short) or due to my admitted lack of true enchantment with menage relationships (it has to be exceptionally well written menage for me to enjoy it - and I've read them), I found Taken to be rushed and harried

I have read numerous Anya Bast novels, and usually find they have a very good storyline and are well written, this book however was rather different to what I have read from her before. A bit far-fetched I thought in terms of the storyline, but if you put that aside and just see it as a purely imaginative piece of work then it was a light-hearted, fun read I guess. After all who wouldn't want two sexy, adoring, hunks to fulfil their every need, probably a fantasy lots of us may have dreamt of hu ...more

This was a short novella story. I've read a couple of Anya Bast's works and I've enjoyed them. I would have liked this story a little more if it had been just a little bit longer. It seemed that it stopped a little abruptly so by the time I'd gotten into it it was over. One moment Anne is having coffee the next she is being chased by a Frankenstein-like man. Caleb and Van appear on the scene and carry her away to their planet where there is more men than women. Not a bad place IMO *giggles*. Cal ...more

It's a very quick read but it doesn’t develop the characters really at all. You learn a little bit about where they come from but that really is it. I like books where you learn about them more and there more developed. I also didn’t like the plot nothing really happened and I couldn’t really figure out the climax where the book has you on the edge of your seat and your wondering what's going to happen. You really know what's going to happen all the way throw no surprises. Not one I would read o ...more
Me encantaron los dos pero, creo, que soy Team Van.
I liked the general concept for the story, but I think it could have been executed better. I would have liked more detail, more danger and more sensual scenes. There could have interaction with other human females taken and so many other things. I would have had the guys meeting her at least casually before the abduction happened. I liked all the characters ok (liked not loved), but I think I liked Van of the guys better.
I don't normally like short stories or novellas. This book wasn't a great story it was actually kind of silly and had me laughing out loud because it was so silly and out there. For this reason I gave it 3 stars. It wasn't great but I was very entertained for the short duration of the book.
the truth about this book is that it's a little far-fetched even for me so your a women with a good job when all of the sudden two hunks want to carry you away and marry you and nothing at all goes wrong? that's no fun to read

the only bad thing was that it was short and ended rather abruptly this story had so much potential and i felt like if they had spread it out more it could have been fantastic rather than good
James Ramsey
Too short and not enough plot to interest me. The sex scenes were luke warm and some of the terminology turned me off. It was a great plot that never fulfilled its potential
The book was okay because it moved fast . It was very basic and had a quick ending that seemed to be just thrown together. It was even a little corny in areas.
Silly silly story... all the events were so "perfect".
It's not bad, it's just waaaay too incredible (and I'm not talking about the alien thing).
Very good book......very explicit but I enjoyed the story line!
Just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm just not that into aliens.
