“…a very tasty alien sci-fi romance.”
~ Under the Covers
1 Alien Hero
– Optional (but vastly improves the recipe) Alien Hero should be distinctly different from human for example, extra appendages such as arms or eyes, or perhaps has green scales
1 Human Heroine
– Optional (but vastly improves the recipe) Human Heroine is curvy, brave and down on her luck
Handful of Evil Government Agents
1. The Alien Hero must beat the Handful of Evil Government Agents until they are scrambled
2. Once scrambled separate the Alien Hero from the Evil Government Agents
3. Add the Alien Hero and Human Heroine to a small enclosed space, we recommend a good SUV.
4. The combination of the Alien Hero and Human Heroine will react. Warning, this will produce a lot of heat so handle with care.
5. The heat will eventually cause the Alien Hero and Human Heroine to rub together and blend to become one unit – also known as a HEA.
I can’t believe it! Tiffany Roberts managed to get a hold of my recipe (as above) and used it to create Claimed by an Alien Warrior. She followed it very closely, even adding in the optional extras, and the final product was a very tasty alien sci-fi romance.
Zoey and Ren were forced together by circumstances and chased around the country as evil government flunkies tried to track them down. Their destination was Ren’s crashed ship. Once they found it he could finally go home after years spent in captivity being experimented on. Although Zoey and Ren’s relationship didn’t start well…he did hijack her and her car after all, they quickly move past it. Zoey very quickly emphasises with Ren’s situation and agrees to help him and their romance grows from there.
This is one of those romance where the hero and heroine are couped up together, whether it’s a snowbound cabin or a long car journey it’s the same principle, and so an intimacy is rapidly formed. I enjoyed seeing Zoey and Ren becoming closer and eventually an attraction begin to form despite their differences – both in looks and culture. This is something that Roberts does really well, both in this book and their previous works. They get two vastly different characters and smosh them together until they form a warm and gooey romance we can all enjoy.
The only thing that I wasn’t sure of was the length of the cross country chase. I really like it at first, it added an edge of excitement and urgency to the story, which resulted in Ren and Zoey having to trust each other very quickly. However, it felt too stretched out. I would have preferred that they found Ren’s craft more quickly and perhaps we spent more time on Ren’s home world watching him and Zoey adjust. It would have been interesting to see Zoey being the “alien” rather than Ren. However, this didn’t detract from the central focus of the book; the romance, which I very much enjoyed.
This was a great book; sexy with a dash of action and had two very likeable characters. If you like an alien sci fi romance I highly recommend you pick it up and give it a try. I will now sit back in anticipation to see what this wonderful husband and wife team will give me next!

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?
