Synopsis (Goodreads):
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.
Thoughts on Heroic Abduction: I have a very tough time NOT loving these big purple aliens. Whether they're being mercenary and taking what they want when they want it or trying to be a hero, they give me a giggle.

Frankly, Dyre's desire to be good is hilarious. While he might have the best intentions, things tend to turn on him every.single.time. He accidentally burns things down, rescues damsels who don't want to be rescued, and generally makes a mess of things. But he's so darn earnest when he does it.

Seriously, how can you not like a guy who gives his all like that?

And when he drops the good guy persona and goes all HULK SMASH! on the bad guys for daring to lay a hand on his lady... well, things get even more entertaining. For Betty, too. She gets all that protective rage focused on keeping her safe. It takes her a while to appreciate it, but when she does, she REALLY does.

So. Purple. Everybody should give them a try. Mercenary or hero, they find a way to destroy their enemies and keep their special lady friends safe. Gotta love that!
