That’s right alien Highlander, that is what the hero reminded me! He was possesive, domineering and arrogant, yet utterly charming. In real life I would brain him- once I had been thoroughly ravished by him ofcourse- but in the book I really liked him, so much so that he and his insatiable alien love stick (or rather trunk!) has earned its way into my harem.The book did have a bit of a plot going on which I mostly ignored as what I really liked about this book was the two main characters Deanna and Lorgan. Deanna was a great heroine, she had been thrown from our world to a completely new galaxy with Lorgan, but being a hardy sci fi fan takes it on the chin and keeps on going. I also loved that she stuck up for herself and didn’t let Lorgan steamroll over her, or atleast did her best to stop him, although she was often overcome by his masculine potency (yes that is almost a direct quote from the book!) this lead to some funny exchanges between the two of them and this is definately a book you don’t read in public it had me laughing out loud several times!
So I really enjoyed this book, it was corny, it was over the top, it had sexy aliens in it and an alien yoda-like character. What more could I ask?!
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
