Publisher's Summary

Makl is looking to become the greatest mercenary the universe has known. In true family tradition, he leaves a trail of mayhem and bodies wherever he goes, steals the most priceless of items, ravishes females left and right. But that all ends the day he comes across the biggest prize of all – a human barbarian.

Fooled into thinking her a priceless virgin and captivated by her pale skinned, two-breasted frame, he abducts her, or at least means to. His plan goes somewhat awry. The not-so-innocent human becomes his partner in crime instead of his prisoner, and together they form an unstoppable duo. Tales of their misdeeds and budding passion become a universal sensation, but there's no room in a mercenary's life for a mate. Or is there?

For the first time in his life, the Mercenary's Guide to Prosperity doesn't have an answer to Makl's questions, and there's no visible threat for him to kill. What's a poor, purple mercenary to do? Admit he's in love – or ditch the delectable human?

Funny and entertaining!

This audiobook is a book I’d read several years ago and it translated well into audiobook form. The purple alien hero is a mercenary from a family of mercenaries that try to outdo one another on pulling the biggest heists and jobs ever. Their man goal in life seems to be wanting to top the leader board as the baddest of the bad. There is so much humor and ego in this story it actually makes you chuckle. The heroine won’t put up with his crap and partners up with him for a job, but he starts to find her more intriguing than annoying after a while. So is it better to be number one, or to have love? Narration was well performed as well.

Great book to read

so much better than her first book in this series. I like the twist with Oliva, and how they become dependent on each other. I wish her books were longer with more depth, but for a rainy day romance this hits all the right spots.

Another great book by Eve

There were so many things that I enjoyed about this book. I was laughing out loud from the start of the book.

Makl is a mercenary who is feared by many, but he can't refuse to run an errand for his aunt to find a human nanny for his cousin's son. While on the errand he meets Olivia. He thinks that he is saving her, but it turns out that she doesn't need saving at all.

Olivia is a strong and capable woman. Makl is a little surprised when he goes to rescue her and she takes him down instead. She scolds him for messing with her plans. It's one of my favorite parts of the book.

This book has great characters and it's a fun story.
