“… it was so darn cute…”
~ Under the Covers

Maybe it was just because I read this book in December that it made me feel festive. Maybe it was because it was so darn cute and had a theme of new beginnings that it got me thinking about Christmas. It was probably the former as I read this whilst eating the carcass of a Lindt chocolate reindeer, they complimented each other perfectly.

As you can guess from the title, this novella follows the mail-order bride type story line. But instead of a lonely rancher in a small town in the Old West, we have Emvor, a world weary alien veteran now farmer on a small agricultural planet. Emvor wants a sturdy woman who can help him on the farm and keep him warm at night. What he doesn’t want is a small weak human woman, even if she does make his house seem warmer and more homely. Even if the sight of her, even if she does look a little strange with no tail or horns arouses him like no other female.

I think you know where this story is going. And although the story is predictable, it is sweet and grumpy, reclusive Emvor, despite his size and scars, is bound to make your heart melt. If you have read Ruby Dixon before, you will recognise the world this is set in and the type of alien Emvor is. If not, this is a great introduction to her books and I highly recommend you start her Ice Planet Barbarians series next.spacer

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
