The Alien Mate Index (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: This is Part 1 of Abducted, book one in my new Sci-fi romance series, The Alien Mate Index.
I'm putting it out as a novella to give you a taste of what is to come.
There are order links for the entire book at the end of this novella.

Zoe McKinley has a boring life, an awful job, and a boss that throws staplers at her head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by Aliens?

When Zoe is dragged aboard an extraterrestrial ship, she thinks she's been chosen as a concubine by the huge red-skinned male with horns and a devilish grin because he has a hard-on for Earth girls. But Sarden has worse plans for her--he wants to trade her to an alien petting zoo!

Can Zoe convince him she's worth saving? And can Sarden keep from falling for the little Earth girl with the sassy attitude and the lush, plus-sized curves?
You'll have to read Abducted, book one in the Alien Mate Index series to find out.

Warriors of the Twelve Peoples—Alien males who need to bond with females.

From the pen of Evangeline Anderson, the writer who brought you Brides of the Kindred, comes a new race of Alien warriors…twelve races, to be exact.

Everyone thinks that live just evolved on Earth—
Wrong.
Our planet, and twelve others, all capable of supporting Terran life, was seeded by the Ancient Ones.
Then Earth was locked away, kept safe in the cocoon of our ozone layer. But now there’s a gaping hole in our security blanket and guess who’s coming to dinner?
That’s right—the Alien warriors of the Twelve Peoples—also descended from the Ancient Ones, are looking for mates and Earth girls are their first choice.

The Vorn are feared throughout the galaxy. Savage, horned warriors, these males can be surprisingly gentle to the females they choose to bond with.
Denarins come in pairs—two muscular males who share a psychic bond... and feel the need to share one woman as well.
And the Majorans worship their females as goddesses, the very color of their skin changing with their bonded mate’s mood.
Braxians are savage with black-on-white eyes that can see every spectrum of light. They will defend their females to the last drop of blood in their huge, blue bodies.

And there are more…so many more Alien warriors to pick from.
Which type of male would you choose?
Too bad you won’t have a choice, because thanks to the Alien Mate Index, an agency that abducts Earth brides for alien males, you could be snatched at any time and turned into a massive warrior’s mate or concubine.
So the real question is—who will choose you?

Secrets that nobody would guess, with a person that no one would imagine for us. Deep in our hearts, we all keep forbidden wishes, fade illusions, that would never be, but what if we were offered a second chance?
