Holiday Abduction (Alien Abduction #6)(7)
Eve Langlais

“You can keep your big dick to yourself. I’ll take your word for it. Besides, I’ve no need of a lover.”

“Lover? Who said anything about affection? Any demonstration of my virility would not involve emotion, just bodily satisfaction.”

“Still not interested. Now can we get off the topic of sex and back on track?”

“If you insist. As I recall, we were discussing the fact that you have no guardian or mate.” Not that it would have mattered. Vhyl had no issue with eliminating competition.

“Listen, purple dude—”

“My name is Vhyl.” He chose to give her his shortened name. It wasn’t as if she could do anything with it.

“Vile? Why am I not surprised? I’m Jilly, in case you care. Now, I don’t know about where you come from, but on Earth, women don’t need guardians. We are perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves.”

How preposterous. “What of your defense?”

“Against what?”

“People like me.” As he spoke, he moved, crossing the rectangular counter space that separated them. Landing on the other side, he smoothly plucked the weapon from her with one hand while the other wrapped around her curvy frame and drew her against him.

Her breath caught in a startled gasp, and her eyes widened as she stared at him. “Let me go.”

“No.”

She squirmed, to no avail against his greater strength, which, given her brows drew together, vexed her. “This isn’t funny. Let me go at once.”

“Are you making demands?”

“What if I said please?”

How sweet her lips looked when they curved in a questioning plea. But they’d look better wrapped around a certain aroused part of his anatomy—only once he’d accomplished his quest. “I will release my grip and give you my word you will come to no harm if you tell me how to find the XiiX stone.” Forget his earlier lie that claimed he visited for cultural education. Time to get his mission back on track so he could then indulge in pleasure.

“The what?”

“The XiiX? Don’t play the innocent. According to the energy signatures my ship picked up, it is located somewhere within your abode.”

Again, she wrinkled her nose, and he found himself fighting an urge to lean in a little closer and taste her lips.

“You’re looking for some alien artifact?”

“Not just any artifact, the XiiX. It’s been lost for millennia but recent discoveries of some ancient scrolls on a dead planet have allowed me to trace its movement to your world.”

“And you think it’s here, on my farm?”

“I don’t think. I know it is. Lead me to it,” he commanded…but she didn’t obey.

“Sorry, Vile. I can’t help you.”

“You will if you wish to remain unharmed,” he growled, tightening his grip.

How lovely she felt in his grasp. Curvy, warm, and her scent? He could fetch a fortune for it if he could bottle it. Then again, that would mean sharing it, and Vhyl wasn’t into that.

“You can stop with the threats. I would give it to you if I knew what the hell you were talking about. What’s it look like?”

Good question. All the ancient texts spoke about the XiiX, but none ever displayed any images. All he knew was it was made of Arcanius, one of the rarest metals in the known universe, which was how he was able to pinpoint the location in the first place. The energy signature was quite distinctive if you could calibrate the computers well enough to detect it. He’d killed the technician who’d programmed his.

“An actual description might prove difficult.” As difficult as staying focused on his task rather than getting distracted by the scent of her. Her delicate aroma surrounded him in a sensual perfume that clouded his senses.
