Avelyn and the Alien Daddy (Intergalactic Brides 3) (Intergalactic Brides) by Jessica Coulter Smith - Romance>Fantasy
Avelyn's life was turned upside down the day she lost her baby and realized her husband was a monster who couldn't be redeemed. Now that she's divorced and having to make it on her own, she knows she needs to make some major changes in her life. But when she enters the Terran Station in Las Vegas in search of a job, the last thing she expects is to find her arms full of a screaming alien baby, and faced with a very flustered daddy.

Thrace adopted sweet Lily to spare her from the Intergalactic Adoption Agency. Now that he's become a doting daddy overnight, he's feeling a bit overwhelmed. When Avelyn is dropped into his lap, he's more than grateful. A nanny is just what he needs!

There's only one problem. When Thrace looks at Avelyn, he doesn't see a caretaker for his daughter. He sees a vibrant, desirable woman who sets his blood on fire.

What's an alien daddy to do when what he wants most is to have the nanny in his bed?

Avelyn and the Alien Daddy is the third book in the Intergalactic Brides series by author Jessica Coulter Smith.  Though part of a series I was not lost at all. This is a love story between Avelyn and Thrace and strictly about them nothing else.
Avelyn good hearted, sweet, just getting out of an abusive relationship. She is wanting to be free, free of pain, free of worry.  She wants to find someone to love, and be loved by. She just isn’t sure where to find it.
Thrace he made me laugh. He has adopted a child who hates everyone. He wanted to save the little girl from an orphanage or foster care but she just cannot stand anyone. Avelyn soothes her and suddenly the only person she likes is Avelyn. So he hires her as a nanny. He just didn’t count on how much  he would want her as his real bride.
I liked how these two took the time to get to know each other. The ending of this book is truly heartbreaking. I was torn between crying and wanting to kill someone. But the emotional intensity is well worth the read. When you want a sweet, sexy, alien romance this is the one to pick up.
