Review: Accidental Abduction by Eve Langlais

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Abducted by a space pirate, she fights the temptation to let him plunder her goods.

A boyfriend’s attempted murder leaves Megan floundering in the ocean. Sinking without hope, the bright light she sees in the night sky isn’t her doorway to heaven, but rather the beginning of her accidental abduction by a space pirate. While thankful of his rescue, Megan stays true to form and just can’t keep her mouth shut, even when he keeps threatening to kill her--or auction her off to the highest bidder. Even odder, despite her decision to not get involved with her wickedly hot captor, she can’t help craving his touch.

Tren retired from his job as a mercenary so he could enjoy life, but he never counted on the boredom of normalcy. The acquisition of rare items has somewhat filled the void, but his accidental abduction of an outspoken earthling, who doesn’t know when to shut up, turns his life upside. Her fiery spirit draws him while at the same time drives him insane. Struggling with his urges, he must decide-- throttle her barbarian neck or ravish her delectably lush body?

Despite what his heart tries to tell him, he’s determined to sell her to the highest bidder even as he seduces her body. However, despite his best intentions, he discovers he can’t let her go. And when a foe from his past thinks to steal her, he’ll do anything to get her back.
My Thoughts:  Oh, man!  I read the excerpt for this book and absolutely loved how irreverent it sounded.  I mean, mouthy earth girl meets purple space pirate hunk!  I was hooked.  I went out and picked it up on the spot and ended up just loving it.

Megan is sassy (sometimes when she shouldn't be), smart and ridiculously unlucky at love.  Dump her into the arms of a bored ex-merc who flips all her switches - sexually speaking - and you end up with one hot, sexy, steamy ride.  In space, no less.  I do love my sexy sci-fi books.  Considering how much I enjoy these types of books, I should really read more of them.

This book was fun.  Fun, fun, fun.  And I like that.  I like coming to the end of a book and thinking "That was awesome. Give me more horny purple space pirates, please."  I just liked this book.  I liked how sassy Megan was.  I liked how Tren kept trying to tell himself that he was just keeping Megan around for the sex.  I liked that it was a light-hearted read.

I'm totally going to go paw through Eve Langlais' other ebooks now to see what else catches my fancy.
