The (Alien) Nanny for Christmas (Alien) Nanny for Christmas (Stolen by an Alien #6)
Hi. I’m Gwen. I’m a single mom to two growing boys—and now I’m the brand new owner of an alien whose greatest wish in life is to become a live-in nanny. It’s been kind of a weird day. I wholeheartedly recommend adding an alien to your household though. He cooks, he cleans—and the kids love him. But three things you should know if you’re going to keep a seven-foot-tall alien in your basement? You might want to invest in flameproof cookware. He will think of you as his planet’s equivalent of a princess. And my alien is totally stealing my underwear. **This is a 37K, sweet Standalone Novella. Note: Explicit language and adult scenes are contained in this book. ***Heads up for readers of the Stolen series: this is an interconnected standalone, so hop in and have some fun “Ha!” moments with me!

    It's another day-in-the-life of Gwen who feels she's failing as a mother for her two children. Unable to get emergency childcare backup, she faces losing her job as this will be her third strike, and she's out. "Will no one rid me of this meddlesome life?" From her mouth to a Rakhaii's ears. Mitteeku, a wandering extraterrestrial, hoping to disguise himself as a cosplay participant, hears her sobbing and signs up to be a child caretaker (because he finds the term "babysitter" to be abusive).You It's another day-in-the-life of Gwen who feels she's failing as a mother for her two children.

Mitteeku, a wandering extraterrestrial, hoping to disguise himself as a cosplay participant, hears her sobbing and signs up to be a child caretaker (because he finds the term "babysitter" to be abusive).You gotta love these Rakhaii. Shame they aren't real. But I can definitely suspend my disbelief for most anything written by Amanda Milo. I will confess that I am not swayed by the holiday season when it comes to stories coming out, dressed up in red and green wrapping because it's a continuation of the objectification of what originally wasn't a time to "buy things". But I enjoyed this read immensely.The cast of characters was great as always. Again, the plot line is pretty simple but now an Earther woman is hiding an alien in her house for who knows how long before someone figures it out. I'm still laughing about the postal carrier who thinks that there is a very big dog on the other side of the door! My only problem is that it is obvious this novella was slapped together rather quickly because of the inordinate number of errors, misspellings, repeated words, punctuation errors... I thought I was reading an ARC in which this haphazard mess would be cleaned up later. THAT is why I've downgraded the number of stars to a four because it was far worse than in her other releases. (Geez!! Who was your editor, girl! I'd never thought I'd be whining like this about your stuff!)I'd still buy this book. I only wish I could go in and correct the text so that the next time I reread it, I won't be distracted as much.

    Book 6 in the stolen by an alien series. A wonderful, can be read as standalone, but seriously...with characters this great,a series so full of world building and wonderful sci fi romance series... why would you only read one? Without heading into spoilerville...this story occurs when ‘other stuff’ is going on... Gwen is a single mother of two boys, making her way through each day as best a single mum can... with a last minute childminder cancellation...she finds her options limited... loose her Book 6 in the stolen by an alien series.

OR enlist the help of a lost visiting alien in the garden! Absolutely fantastic from start to finish! A true joy and pleasure to read. Filled with humour and tenderness this is a wonderful scifiromance read with a seasonal holiday twist 👽🎅🏻My only grumble... is that I want a giant dragonesq, marshmallow manny/manservant/lover to look after my boys and my house!! It’s almost enough to make me want to be a fictional character in a story!! #RealitySucks #LoveRahkii #Shikaka

    Love this seriesThis along with blind fall go towards filling in some blanks. So looking foward to the next installment, here's to hoping these get put together as sets so i can have them at once to read and reread without taking up all my phones memory, can't use an sd card on this one. Amanda I am seriously contemplating buying a new phone for this very reason. Love you, Love your brain, and how awesome your imagination is.

I got hooked on your first book from almost the second it came out, I laughed, I went on an emotional rollercoaster then laughed some more. I highly recommend all of Amanda Milos works. I can safely say so far, that there aren't any i haven't read. So read on and enjoy the ride.

    Just... WOW! Amanda, please send Mitteeku’s identical twin brother to my house! With all these kids, I desperately need him! This was the sweetest story. Single mom, Gwen, has two fabulous boys, but no sitter for baby Austin. It must be a wonderful universal occurrence that a curious Rakhii appears on her doorstep. Of course, as Rakhiis do, Mitteeku endears himself to this family and stays on to nanny the baby. Amanda Milo shines in the details. And there’s no shortage of steamy scenes, either. Just... WOW!

    So worth the read!Another home run for Amanda Milo! I adore this author with her “punny” humour and make you roar with laughter situations. Her hero’s are adorable (I want one of my very own!) and the leading lady will never leave you wanting. An absolute MUST read. Do yourself a favour and buy ALL books with her name on them! You will not be disappointed!

    4.5 starsI have to admit this is the first I am reading in the series. I've read about the first 2 of the series and I was afraid they would be too "dark" for me. I saw someone posted this book on Facebook and thought that this doesn't look bad at all, I'm so glad I read it. Sweet and so funny. Loved all the characters. Will look back at what other stories I missed.

    A perfect holiday treat!I do so adore a Rakhii in love! Gwen has been so stressed, and Mitteeku is just the one to take a load off her shoulders. It’s wonderful seeing the care he takes with Chris and Austin. It’s no time at all before he has routines in place and kids who listen.Their story is heartwarming, romantic and fun - a perfect holiday treat!

    I giggle snorted enough times that I had to put down my coffee, and the teens were starting to enquire about my well being. Hard to pick a favourite line, buyt probably when the post man asked about what kind of puppy Gwen owned. You’ll just have to read it now to figure out what I mean. Alien romance done RIGHT.
