Review: Heroic Abduction by Eve Langlais

He’ll do anything to be her knight in purple armor.

Bucking family tradition, Dyre is determined to become his planet’s first hero, even if it breaks his mother’s heart. He sets out on numerous quests to save the universe, however his altruism never seems to turn out quite as expected. Who knew doing the right thing was so hard?

In between saving those who don’t want his help—and the chaos that follows—he rescues a damsel in distress. She doesn’t appreciate his heroic abduction, and even worse, once Dyre gets to know the outspoken human, he entertains less than noble thoughts about ravishing her.

It takes only a couple of comical mishaps, some hot kisses and danger for Dyre and Betty to discover their happily ever after—and thank the stars for a heroine who ends up saving this hero, and the galaxy, from his chivalrous side.

Genre: Science Fiction / Alien/ Fantasy Romance

He’s big, he’s purple and he wants to be a hero, not a mercenary. Too bad he’s got bad genes working against him.

My Review:

This is one of my favorite series by Eve!  They are big, over-confident, purple, and definitely in charge....just the way I like them :)  In this particular book Dyre has broken from tradition and chosen a different lifestyle.  His planet is known throughout to produce some of the fiercest mercenaries ever to be seen. Unfortunately, Dyre's true desire is to be seen as a hero, much to his parents extreme disappointment.  He dreams of saving a fair princess and falling in love.   His fair maiden turns out to be a lot less virtuous than to be expected, which leads to quite a humorous adventure!  A wonderful addition to this already great series!!!
