Jody’s won the masquerade costume competition for four years running. She should be a shoo-in for first place this year, as well, except that she’s being badly upstaged by a tentacle monster costume. Tara’s got to come to the rescue or it’ll be one miserable drive home. Besides, Jody’s a fantastic costumer, and she deserves all the attention she’s not getting. When Tara springs into action to divert the audience’s attention, the last thing she expects is a chance to experience some real live tentacle play herself!
Only problem is, her Tentacle Monster’s costume doesn’t come off. He’s really a shape shifting alien on the run from some real live alien bounty hunters dressed in what look like leftover eighties costumes from the set of Flash Gordon, and now Tara’s got to help him escape, or she could end up crated off to Zenon to stand trial for aiding and abetting a fugitive.

Where are the Men in Black when you need them, anyway?

Tara is attending a costume fan convention, and has been tasked with luring away a man in a fantastic tentacle costume who is stealing the thunder of her good friend. Always up for a challenge, Tara easily entices the man to follow her. As the elevator they are riding in is stopped, Mr. Tentacles, whose name is Juxtan, takes Tara on a whole ‘nother kind of ride. This boy is an alien on the run, and those tentacles sure feel real!

Tara comes off as brass and ballsy, but she’s really putting on a good face after her self-confidence took a dive. Juxtan is in a dangerous situation, but he finds himself wanting to play the hero for Tara, who has entranced him in a very short time. They have an explosive chemistry together, but have to outwit the villains before they can have any kind of future.

This was a very hot and sexy short story. Because of its length, the reader doesn’t really have time to become invested in the characters. They meet, there’s heat, and then the chase. It was amusing, and poked fun at comic conventions, and the people who attend them. I loved the heroic and sexy alien, and this story flowed along without a dull moment. For readers who are into sizzling sci-fi, this novella left me smiling. Don’t be surprised if you go looking for an alien of your own.
