Anna has been sent to the San Diego branch of the Department of Extra-Terrestrial Immigration from her London PR company to negotiate a contract. Her job is to help improve the public image of the local Teissian refugee community after it has come under attack from a local politician. On her first day there, she is invited to the office Christmas party. The next morning, she wakes up beside a tall scaled alien named Khy. Anna just wants to forget it ever happened - not that either of them can actually remember what happened - but Khy is insistent. In his culture, he is now honour-bound to stay by her side, at least until she can prove she's not pregnant. Anna knows it's impossible, but she can't get rid of him, and what's worse is that she's due at her brother's for Christmas in a matter of days. With no other choice, she and Khy have to pretend to be in love for real so he can join her in New Hampshire for the holidays. When their relationship is suddenly exposed in the worst possible way, and Anna becomes a target for anti-Teissian protesters, Khy has to be her bodyguard as well as her boyfriend. With everything spiralling out of Anna's normally tight control, Khy is the only one she can rely on. But what does that mean when the inevitable happens, and they're forced to admit she's not pregnant? With nothing keeping them together, they have to make a choice. Was any of it real? Or were they just a drunken mistake from the start?...

The Security Guy (Office Aliens #3) Reviews
Bailed at 32%. The hero was just a bit too full on. I couldn't deal with him effectively stalking the heroine and not leaving when she said she wanted him to leave her alone. He'd been on earth for 4 years by that point so he knew that kind behaviour was not acceptable. I certainly didn't find it romantic or amusing. It didn't make me like the hero so I stopped reading this book. The other two books in the series were ok but I couldn't deal with this one.
Khy is a Volon. Anna is human.
This book touches on many issues with refugees - leaving behind all that they knew, learning a new society and culture and language, making a relationship work when the cultures are extremely different.
Anna and Khy were drunk when they became intimate but neither one really remembers it. Culturally, they have very different ways of dealing with the repercussions of their one-night stand.
I appreciate how much depth of emotion V.C. Lancaster shows us in the couple, ...more
I loved this one. Probably one of my favorites in the series.
My biggest pet peeve was when he just left!
Everything up until that point was so good and their relationship growth was hilarious and amazing.
But when their time was up, that portion I hated. Again, no communication. He just had a stick up his ass and left. THEN he treats her like nothing was wrong!
There was some redemption after they figured it out, but that part just pissed me off.
I love love LOVE this series. Each one gets better and better. This is my absolute favorite. Several times I almost started bawling (but held myself together lol). I can't wait for more!
I didn't have the same reaction as most to this book. I was bored and skimmed the whole way through.
Could have been a 5 star for me H did more of the chasing at the end of the story.
3rd in series
Anna works in PR, she has moved from London to the USA to work alongside and aid DETI ( department of extraterrestrial immigration ) in their ongoing fight to help and aid the Teissian Refugee Community, who after fleeing invaders from their home world and settling on earth, have been struggling following an ongoing hate and fear campaign by a local politician.
Its Anna’s job to spin the focus away from doubt and negativity and into something positive and get the focus back on helpi ...more
Good slow starter
I was slightly concerned at the beginning of this book. It took a little bit of time to pull me in but I'm very glad I stuck with it. The story is full of humor and honest human emotion. It was a great story that concentrated on one couple but didn't get eaten up by their life. You felt integrated into the world they live in. I'm impressed and now I'm going to go read the rest of Lancaster's books!
