Publisher’s Summary: Romantic holiday story that connects ALIENATED and INVADED!
Cara and Aelyx only have one day to spend together before he returns to earth and she travels to Aelyx’s home planet, L’eihr. Homesick and worried about the upcoming year apart, Cara is desperate to make these final hours count. Worst of all, Cara is missing Christmas, stuck on board an alien spaceship. When Aelyx learns that Cara is forgoing her favorite holiday, he tries to recreate Christmas in space by researching traditional earth customs…but a few things get lost in translation.
Review: This is a very cute hop between Alienated and Invaded. I could have used a little more fluff. We meet Cara’s big brother and he’s very protective of her (which confuses Cara because he never has been before.) Aelyx attempts at Christmas are laughable and the sweet touch this romance needed. There’s also a bit of jealousy introduced as a high ranking member of the alien government sets his eyes on Cara. Aelyx realizes for the first time just how wrong his actions were in Alienated when he gave Cara a necklace in front of her boyfriend when Jaxon gives Cara a present she absolutely adores. Perhaps this is a love triangle being introduced? Jaxon definitely has an agenda. I wonder what it is. I wish this novella was longer!
