I never believed in life among the stars…then a man from space saved me.
My reality was worse than my nightmares before Monte showed up.

Now I’m helping my savior bring down my captors—the monsters who intended to sell me.
The bond I have with Monte grows stronger every day. But the closer I get to my alien, the more dangerous our situation becomes—for both of us.

Boundless Book Reviews
Protecting Earth is really this sweet, genuine alien novella.

I’ve read one of the Alien books. But not all. Never fear though, you don’t really have to. Run and Monte are so cute together. I really believed their connection and that’s important in any story that I read. For being a Novella, Magan really made you connect with these characters. It was lighthearted but also serious when it needed to be.

Sometimes an instant-love type get together. Can be just unbelievable but I really did believe

Protecting earth was a quick but engaging read. I really enjoy the way Magan Vernon brings to life a world where aliens are a part of it. I love how it all comes together and there's such a connection between the characters that's not only believable but palpable.

Ryn and Monte's story just works for them, it had all the necessary parts to grab and hold my attention and leave me rooting for them and anxious for more. Though only a novella, Protecting earth didn't lack on action or romance.

I've read several books by Magan Vernon and loved them all, and with that it was no different.
This book is a quick read and the story is very interesting.
Ryan and Monte's story flows naturally, and the connection between them is immediate. This story is short, but it has the right amount of action and a bit of suspense to leave us wondering what will happen.
I recommend the reading.
I received a copy and voluntarily reviewed it.

This is a good one!

This was the third book by this author that has been offered in this series. This really both stretched the imagination and yet really fit within the series. Great characters and outrageous storyline.

Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amok around her Texas ranch.

You can stalk her online at all of these fun and happy places.
