Riker Phoenix is an alien from Alpha-Prime whose ship has just crash landed on Earth. Unfortunately, his reason for being there is he is escorting his younger brother to a penal colony planet. Earth was only supposed to be a pitstop, and they certainly were not supposed to crash.
Elise Midori is an alien living on Earth in the alien run town of Alienn, Arkansas. She moved to Earth when it became apparent that her family was not going to accept her decision not to be a part of an arranged marriage set up by them, as well as, their unwillingness to accept her choice of career as a bodyguard. But those were not the only reasons. When she also discovered the man she loved was about to marry another, there was no reason for her to stay on Alpha-Prime.
When Elise who has been sent to Nocturne Falls to find the inhabitants of the downed space ship finds the man she left behind in a cabin in the woods, she cannot resist trying to kiss him awake. While he does appear to wake up briefly, it does not last for long and Elise can see Riker is badly hurt. Knowing she has to find a vehicle of some kind to get Riker out of there, she leaves with the intention of returning for him. Unfortunately, the three women/druids that brought him to the cabin return before Elise is able to get back for him, and they have another plan in mind. They believe that Riker is part of an ancient prophecy that means he is to be the mate of he head druid. Will Elise be able to get Riker out of there before their cover is blown? And if they do, will Elise and Riker finally come together the way they have always longed to?
I really enjoyed Invasion of the Alien Snatchers! The world building is creative and fun. This is the second book I have had the pleasure of reading by Ms. Roarke and I was not disappointed. There is plenty of action and adventure in this story with a huge dash of paranormal elements and science fiction. I loved the fact that the heroine is the one who saves the day. So many stories have the guy being the savior, so I thought it was just awesome that that dynamic gets turned on its head in this story. If you love science fiction and sweet romance then you do not want to miss Invasion of the Alien Snatchers!
