Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments DISCLAIMER:Book not suited for underage readers



Do you believe in Santa?

Yeah, Kris doesn’t either.
But since his ship got stranded above earth,
and an antigravity accident left him with flying reindeer,
he’s decided to make the legend come to life.
The presents he brings aren’t the traditional dolls and rocking horses.
Instead he finds kids who need help—
serious help—
and gives it to them.
Cancer cured.
Houses fixed.
Parents healed.
There’s one little girl he helped years ago
who he’s kept tabs on.
And she’s grown into a beautiful woman.
He’s forced himself to keep his distance,
but when an equipment malfunction gets him stuck in a chimney,
Blitzen brings her to his rescue.
Will she be able to accept him?
Or will the truth of his identity drive her away?

In Love With Alien Santa Claus is standalone, science fiction holiday romance story that features a loving human female and a generous alien. This page-turning science fiction romance story has no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed happy ending!

loving the blurb!
specifically "equipment malfunction gets him stuck in a chimney" *snorts*
why's his equipment acting up in a 'chimney'?

yes, I'm in the gutter already!


Donna (dkflynn33) | 2450 comments Jenny, you already corrupted half of the GR members with Kadin. Do you really want to corrupt the other half?

I shall be reading it with a large glass of whiskey.

but shan't do a drinking game with it (drink each time his generous size is mentioned? I suspect I'd get alcohol poisoning!)

What a brilliant idea. Let's see...bourbon or a nice single malt scotch? Decisions decisions.


message 19: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments I don't drink any of those... But I guess it's time I get a bottle of my favorite grown up drink :D

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments I'd be up for a drinking game.... if we read it saturday after deadline checking. Because on sunday it might be a bad bad BAD idea.

my pet peeve in these books is things like "her core" ...

"The product thus obtained has a transparent, sweet-tasting topaz shade."

Blue?! a blue liqueur? intriguing, but mostly my reaction is "no! wrong! blue is wrong!"

Yep - not pretting coming back up! But I think this one is the brownish-yellow topaz color. :-)


message 32: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments It's not blue...

It's the "brownish" topaz.

Cat (cat_uk) | 6937 comments Mod
brownish-yellow topaz! of course! that makes more sense and is much more appealing to be drunk!

panic over!


message 34: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments And it's sweet and goooooooood

And the best part? A regular bottle it's under 10 euros!!!!

right.... my ridiculous teammates have sweet-talked me into letting them put Christmas decs up in the office today, even though it's not yet December.

I should go join them & help overstuff tiny Xmas trees with baubles...


message 36: by Ora (new) - added it

Ora (oeamis) It's just one day before December. My husband had Christmas decorations Nov 1st. He said it would just be easier to bring them down before putting Halloween decorations went back in the attic. By the first weekend in November he had the tree up and decorated.


message 37: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments LOl

So, I got a sample to see if any word popped out to do the drinking game

Christmas is out - we'd be drunk after the prologue

And she's majoring in folklore and her tesis is about Santa. I needed a moment to go outside. This is precious.


message 38: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments Our tradition is (was) to set it up on December first.

However, all things Christmas start to come out near November 1st (sometimes middle October)

I'm totally Scrooge in my office: shouldn't be up before December starts and comes down the 31st Dec!

oh, at home, totally agree, but in the office I need to come in in January ready to work again, after slacking off in December

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments I HAZ KU!!!!!

After chatting with a very nice person on the amazon client support, they gave me a workaround.

Basically, I only needed an US address.... It can even be an hotel address.

Jenny | 5254 comments Wow!
My uncle works at a hotel, do you want the address for that, or do you have it covered?


Steven (gallifreyan1218) | 4859 comments Don’t worry, she stole... errr... borrowed mine. (With permission). Now she has to come visit me here at some point in order to make it valid. :)

Jenny | 5254 comments OK cool.
Sonia loose in the temptations of KU. Kinda scary.

It's a matter of having a passport. My credit card balance back to full amount. A stupid form & entering permission... Oh, and a new president on that side of the Atlantic.

Then you're on


message 48: by Sonia (new)

Sonia (darktalynn) | 10391 comments Till then, Christmas cards and care packages have to fill the quota


Jessica | 546 comments Why does the character in this book have to be named Jessica... :(
