A good sci fi romance. Monica grew up physically underdeveloped, not know that she is part alien. Then her development begins very fast. Knowing what is happening before anyone else, the Alien Office Kellan claims her before anyone else, and Monica has no recourse. Now, everyone wants her and she doesn't want to be claimed. This is an entertaining story, with likeable characters.
Alien Overnight was a pretty good sci-fi erotic romance. The beginning was a little confusing and the anatomy was a bit strange, but once I got about 1/4 way through, I really enjoyed it. There were moments that I laughed out loud and that is rare for me in a book. I hope Rotham plans to write a sequel.
It took a little time and a few chapters to really start to get into this story, but once I grabbed me I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it all in one sitting. The sex scenes are hot, but a little off center as well. Monica is part alien but doesn't know it and grows up feeling like a freak because she is phsically underdeveloped. Exposed to pheremones from the "aliens" she develops in a matter of a few days. Talk about a lot to deal with. Then she is unwillingly claimed by Kellen, and he chooses a second. The resulting issues are at times amusing, heartwarming, and one scene at the end with Kellen and Monica just made me want to go "awwwww". There was some slightly offbeat anatomy for the "aliens", but anyone who is familiar with and likes Lora Leighs breed series will probably be okay with it. I would compare the "breeding spur" as comparable to the feline breeds. At least that's kind of the way my mind processed it. It was an off-beat, charming story. I hope there are more stories about the Garathanians to come.
The Garathani have come to earth's governments seeking help with their dieing race. During a biological war most of their women and children had been killed. Human DNA is close enough to successfully mate with the Garathani, even if it has to be done in a slightly different manner.
Space freak, Dr. Monica Teague is excited to be working with the Garathani sexual recruits. They have to make sure that the women are fit and meet the requirements for them. Height and overall size are a main issue, since the Garathani males average around seven feet of hunky male flesh.
Commander Kellen has been overseeing every aspect of the recruiting process. While at a demonstration of a Garathani male and an Earth female mating he notices Monica acting weird. Kellen acts quickly once he puts two and two together and realizes what Monica is. He puts in a claim to mate with her in his name and lists Lieutenant Shauss as secondary claimant.
Never thinking that she would be expected to participate due to her underdeveloped body and her androgynous appearance, Monica is starting to wish she wasn't the way she was. She soon gets her wish thanks to a heady dose of alien pheromones and finds out that not one but two sexy aliens find her attractive and want to mate with her. Will Monica be able to handle the new Garathani's rules and their idea of mating?
Contact has been made! In this debut book from author Robin Rotham we get a futuristic erotic version of the ugly duckling. This story is well written and I look forward to seeing future works from this author. Note this story does contain some BDSM and ménage aspects.
Bookfanatic reviewed Alien Overnight (Aliens Overnight, Bk 1) on
I guess I'll have to be the wet blanket. I couldn't really get into this story. It's a sci-fi erotic novel. It's humorous in parts and that I enjoyed, but I just didn't find the story that intriguing. Yes, there's explicit sex, but it's nothing more explict than your typical Ellora's Cave novel. The cover is probably the best part of the story.
