There's this sci-fi book that I read more 10 years ago. Probably from the 80's or 90's. The author was female, I think. It was about Earth being invaded by these purple (possibly blue) aliens. The main character is a lady who, along with other females, was captured and 'harassed' by these aliens who seem kinda good-looking except they are taller than your average 6-foot Joe. She falls in love with one and the alien helps her and other people who've risen up to fight against the marauding alien conqueror. Can anybody help, please?

  • “who seem kinda good-looking except they are taller than your average 6-foot Joe” — except? Is being taller than average (and 6 feet is currently taller than average in most countries, I believe) an exception to being good-looking? – Paul D. Waite Feb 13 '14 at 16:20

Polymer by Sally Rogers-Davidson - Book Cover

Is it "Polymer" by Sally Rogers-Davidson?

One reviewer noted:

It’s the story of Polymer – a nickname – who grew up on an affluent space station where everyone had everything they needed and old people could be kept technically alive thanks to modern medicine, long past their natural deaths.

Her life of friends and parties is destroyed when the space station is invaded by the Gloman Empire.

Separated from her family and everyone she knows, she tries to resist the invaders and instead manages to catch the eye of one Captain Nemo (yes, his name makes her want to giggle at first). Events lead to events which lead to events, and it’s quite the story.

~ From Giraffe Days

Despite the odds, and the fact that Nemo makes her his "personal" prisoner, the two do fall in love. Read more reviews here and here, and go through a book preview here.
