About the Book:

The beginning of an epic saga! Discover new worlds, clashes of cultures, schemes of power, revenge, rescues, and above all, hope….

Abby Tanner was content to live on her mountain creating works of art and enjoying the peace and quiet until a golden space ship crash lands with the King of the Valdier inside, desperately hurt. 

Zoran Reykill knew he had to find a safe place to heal after he escapes from a Curizan military post. When his symbiosis Mothership takes him to an unknown planet he finds more than he expects – he finds his true mate. The only problems are Abby doesn’t understand a thing he says and the local sheriff wants her, too.

My Review:

Here's the thing... this book has received mixed reviews. Readers look for different things in a book. I look for a book that entertains me (check), a book that creates likeable characters (check), and a book with enough action that I don't want to put it down (check). And if it stirs some emotion in me, whether it's crying or laughing, all the better (check). Okay, some of it was not really believable... But it's a "Fantasy"! And it was so entertaining!

Even though I purchased the ebook, I also bought the audio version. "Abducting Abby" was wonderful on Audible! S.E. Smith created a fabulous world with alpha-male leaders who could shift into dragons, and women who were strong and feisty in their own right. Although I'm generally not a big fan of shifter type books, I truly found this one to be extremely entertaining and creative. Loved it and cannot wait to read the next book in this series (which I now have in my possession!)
