Vhyl is determined to acquire a certain lost artifact, but when he lands on the forbidden barbarian planet known as Earth, he finds more than expected. An attractive human female is in possession of the priceless object, and she’s agreed to hand it over—for a price.

Apparently she doesn’t know of his reputation…or doesn’t care.

Intrigued by her fearless nature—and her lu

Vhyl arrives on Earth in search of an artifact when he lands on Jilly's land. Jilly grew up with a grandmother who believed and in a moment when everything seems dire an Alien arrives and shakes everything up. With the men in black in pursuit and Vyhl going by John Smith, they are on the run. Vhyl decides that he wants Jilly though and maybe she is what he needs by his side.

Fun filled book. Vyhl is a bit obtuse but it is in such a funny way. Liked Jilly, she is a feisty woman and tho

Holiday Abduction is book six in the Alien Abduction series by Eve Langlais. This was another fun purple alien romance.

Jill is not sure what to do. Her farm is going into foreclosure and she has no way of bailing herself out. She’s hoping for an alien invasion.

Vhyl is in the filed of acquisitions; which means he collects and/or steels things. He is also a purple alien.

I had a lot of fun with both Jill and Vhyl. Jill grew up with her grandma who believed in aliens, so when a purple guy shows up at her front doo

This novel was wonderfully exciting and fast paced. Langlais’ tale is vibrant and larger than life. The ‘Fine Art of Acquisition’ is even better than the ‘Mercenary’s Guide’ from earlier in the series. It gave me a deeper sense of the alien culture while also making me giggle. I also appreciated how Langlais tied the entire series more closely together via shared celebrations between all of the major characters.

The sassy, snarky writing really let me get inside the heroine’s head. Jilly was pro

While Vhyle is pretty knight-like in some respects, he really isn't in others. Fun, hot and well written, Holiday Abduction also showed us some of the characters from the earlier books.

Vhyl loves being on the wrong side of the law and no one stops him from getting what he wants. Not even a cute human with a primitive weapon will keep him from the artifact he came to earth to retrieve. Though if he was to be honest (and why would he do such a ridiculous thing!?!) the more time he spends with Jilly, the more he sees she may be the priceless treasure he's searching for.

Like his cousins before him, Vhyl quickly learns that dealing with human females is not easy. Jilly

Nothing says Christmas 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 an alluring barbarian alien female who doesn't seem all that impressed fearsome reputation.

Holiday Abduction is a hilarious & sexy sci-fi romp just like Eve's other books in the series. If you like the other five books, you'll like this one as wel

Ms. Langlais' humour has made her one of my favourite authors whose storylines rarely disappoints me. Love that she is Canadian and often makes references to Canada in her books.

Cheers

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.

Inked in the Bayou Book Reviews
I wanted to like this book. I wanted to like it so much, I pre-ordered it on my Kindle. I've read all the other books in this Alien Abduction series so I knew to expect a little fluff, some sexy scenes, humor and adventure.

Unfortunately when I sat down to read Holiday Abduction I felt like the characters were underdeveloped and the "plot" and action reminded me more of an old Wiley Coyote cartoon as opposed to a light romance. While the characters in other books within this series were consiste

I decided that Holiday Abduction would be the perfect early gift to myself to start the season. I couldn't have gotten that more right than if I had hit the lottery! Vinyl has solidly hit the top of my favorite "purple dude" list alongside Brax and Xarn. Never will you meet another more stalwart alien clinging tightly to his lack of morals and need to wreak havoc and mayhem. And Jilly! Love this heroine! She enjoyed being caught up in Vhyl's chaos despite the woes he brought down on them, wrappi ...more

One of the "Alien Abduction" series.

Unknown to Jilly, she's in possession of an ancient artifact that Vhyl's determined to find, and when he shows up on her lawn one snowy December evening, she's not scared -- she's annoyed. But she's also attracted to the hot purple alien (is that like a Purple People-Eater?), and decides that she'd like to get to know him better. But time's not on her side, since not only the police but also Vhyl's enemy Mo, show up, equally determined to get the o

I Love This Series

Another LOL sexy romp with a purple alien who loves to be a bad boy and a human woman who he learns to love. I love the characters in this book. The purple hunky alien comes to Earth to steal an artifact. The human woman who unknowingly owns the artifact is down on her luck with her farm about to be foreclosed on. With other aliens on his trail and human feds in pursuit of alien sightings, he is more I interested in pursuing her and thrilled about the chase. She takes everyt

This was my first Christmas book of this season and I was well pleased. This book contained action, adventure, and humor along with a good amout of sex. This was a stand alone book untill you got to the very end when they do their Christmas celebrating and you really dont need to read the other books in the series. There is also another short story at the end of the edition i got from Kindle. The book had a better Christmas story then most.

3.5 chaos stars

at first, I was a bit, just a tad, disappointed with the story since the last two were so much fun with diverse adventures.
but it got better with the actions as by fleeing the cops, federal agents and jelly mini me.
most importantly, I really like the quotes by both entities.
what a great end to finish with epilogue.

another thing, what about C.B. and her barbarian?

I am sad to say this is not like the others in the series :( I just didn't connect to the hero in this book as I did with the others. Didn't care for the heroine either - oh well there is always that one book.

Shelves: sci-fi, insta-love
extreme insta-love and overall pretty cliche

It was an ok read but easily predictable. The worst part was how extreme the insta-love was. It was almost an overkill. They knew each other a couple of days? It just lacked depth. I doubt I'll continue this series.

Vhyl goes to earth to acquire the XiiX. He tracks it to Jilly's farm where she's praying to find a way to pay her mortgage before it comes due. The XiiX is an ornament on her Christmas tree. She asks Vile as she calls him what he'll give in payment. Before an agreement can be reached, another competitor attacks and blows up her house. Jilly and Vile escape and between running into government agents and Mo again, they get together. When Vhyl asks Jilly to come with him, she turns him down. She re ...more

A happy holiday story with a twist.

Another good addition to this series. And set around my favorite holiday is a bonus. Jilly is my favorite heroine of this series now! Loved her spunk and realistic view to the fact that aliens could exist. Vhyl was as amusing as he was intense! It is a great Christmas story and I look forward to reading more of this series! Good job Eve Langlais.

Great Series

A very hilarious read. That contained action, adventure, and of course steamy romance. Overall enjoyable and entertaining read. Can't wait to check out the other books in this series.

Like the rest of this series, hilarity around every corner. And purple, crazy alien dudes. If you like steamy comedic romance, Eve Langlais is your gal.

It was okay for a quick read to pass the time, not wanting something intellectually stimulating.

Mini funny synopsis and story tidbits:
Jilly is a trip in this book and I would give just about anything to meet her grandmother who seem like my kind of woman— a little eccentric with a love of guns who isn’t afraid to tell it how it is. She also happens to line her bras with tin foil.

Jilly takes after her grandmother and when this Alien steps out of his ship she meets him with her with her shotgun aptly named Problem Solver. Her grandma always believed in aliens, but Jilly didn’t until n

Holiday Abduction is awesome. Eve Langlais has once again combined sexy hot alien romance with adventure, excitement and lots of humor. My Family keeps asking me why I am giggling at my ipad.
Love the line out purple "hero" musses about how the whole world that revolved around himself almost stopped.
This novella reads more like a book as it was packed with adventure, excitement, awesome characters, the return of some great heroes and heroines from the other books in the series and a

I adore this series. The men are unrepentedly mercenary (and, well, sometimes they try to be heroic) and the woman are more than able to hold their own against them. When these big purple hunks fall, they fall hard and fast and they fight it with everything inside them. Until they don't.

That said, I don't know if this book quite lives up to my expectations. Yes, Vhyl is determined to get the artifact he came for and he has no problems stealing, killing, or otherwise maiming anyone wh

I'd just like to point out that only the H in book one actually abducted his h, and that wasn't intentional. The others were mostly rescues, though one h abducted the H.

In any case, this one takes place almost entirely on earth, and the H did the honorable thing and left her behind because she didn't wanna go. He ended up having to rescue her from another thie-uh-acquisitions expert who thought to use her for leverage. Bad idea to come between big and purple and his mate, even if he

Eve's books always carry a banter between the two head characters and it's what always gets me to come back to her books. She has this certain writing style that keeps you entertained. Vhyl may be from another planet and another species but he is still a man, "if you insist on probing, I could indulge you, but it won't be an experiment, more an experience in pleasure." He showed his teeth in a pointed leer." He's not from Earth so at times it takes him a bit to get what Jilly is saying, "it took ...more
