Ready for Abduction?

Katy Perry said it best in her classic and epic pop ballad, “Take me, t-t-take me / wanna be your victim, ready for abduction / boy, you’re an alien, your touch so far away/ it’s supernatural, extraterrestrial.”  Because apparently aliens are hott–and I mean literally HOTT as in attractive–right now, and not just in music.  Now, I’m not saying alien romances are the Next Big Thing in romance novels, but I am saying that I have now read two romances in which our dear hero is a sexy extraterrestrial. And I’m not even a Science Fiction fan.  Other worlds and multiple moons freak me out.  Seriously.  Two moons are too much!

And yet, all that said, I just finished reviewing a book, The Price of Discovery by Leslie Dicken (SAMHAIN PRESS, May) for RT BOOKREVIEWS about an alien affair. I loved it.  I would describe it as Christine Feehan’s Dark Series meets Mars…or whatever planet the characters were from.  It was fun, passionate, seductive, and a great summer read that I literally devoured in one sitting.  You can click here to read my full review or on the picture below, but I have to admit, though I try to go into every review open-minded, I was sure I was not going to jump on this spaceship of an alien/human love match.  Turns out I was wrong!

Romantic Question: Would you be open-minded about an alien romance? Or are aliens simply too out-of-this-world?

    There sure are a lot of supernatural romances happening; first, vampires and now extraterrestrials. I guess I’d be open to the latter, but it would have to be very believable. I find a lot of sci-fi corny, especially when it’s over-the-top.

      Like the scifi channel? Lol gotta love some of their shows. For me aliens are a little creepy. I always think of them as little green people when I should think of them in terms of bbc’s Doctor Who. I’m working on it…
