Woohoo… another one in the Intergalactic Dating Agency novels. Or more to the point – Motor City Alien Mail Order Brides.
I’ll dive right in.
Macy is a med student just entering her residency. Her (identical twin) sister, insistent she needs to lighten up and do something more than study all the time, signs her up to the IDA. You can imagine the reaction. Though at some point Macy resigns to the fact it might just be what she needs.Hudson (don’t let me even attempt writing his alien name) is eager to get his match after Cutlass, his brother from another mother, is so happily mated/married. He also has a better grasp on the English language than Cutlass did/does, though he makes his fare share of funny mistakes.
Those alien boys are adorable and hilarious. And so freaking sweet. Hudson is the most patient sexual being I’ve read in a while. He’s fun, genuinely interested in Macy and appreciates her.
The crux of the story is the twin sister; the girl can’t take a hint. Or she can but now that her sister has a boyfriend, she can’t help herself from meddling. And Hudson even accepts that.
And then Macy finds out Hudson isn’t human. Hudson has amazing friends, though, and we get some Chloe and Cutlass mixed in right when they’re needed.
I loved the resolution in this one, and the leg in towards to third story – should be interesting.
These aliens are looking for love in all the wrong solar systems.
Hudson knew from the moment he saw the flyer in a space station bathroom that a mail order bride from Earth was for him. He wanted a mate, someone to cherish, someone to spoil, and finding her in another species wasn’t a big deal in his mind. Convincing his two shipmates to go along was the hardest part, and even then, he knew everything would work out for them.
Macy had a plan. Go to school, become a doctor, and keep her twin sister healthy. If men fell to the side along the way, she could catch up on the whole dating thing later. But when said twin sister decided to apply for a mail order bride program as Macy, things got a little complicated. Suddenly there was a hot guy with rock-star charm looking at her as if she was the greatest thing on Earth, and she had no idea how to deal with that.
One ad in a space station, one sister who should know better, and a positive attitude that’s almost impossible to break. Almost. What would you do if you found out the man from your fantasies was more like the man from your science fiction?
A storyteller from the time she could talk, Ellis grew up among family legends of hauntings, psychics, and love spanning decades. Those stories didn’t always have the happiest of endings, so they inspired her to write about real life, real love, and the difficulties therein. From farmers to werewolves, store clerks to witches—if there’s love to be found, she’ll write about it. Ellis lives in the Chicago area with her husband, daughters, and a giant dog who hogs the bed.
