A grumpy alien warrior. A pregnant librarian. A ready-made family?
Wanda has never hankered after excitement – or romance. A quiet life as a small town librarian suits her just fine. But while she doesn’t need a man, she does want a child. Just as her hard-earned dreams come true, she is abducted by aliens.
Now she’s been abandoned by her captors and assumed responsibility for two orphaned children, a pregnant alien, and a misplaced socialite. When their lifeboat is intercepted by a very large, very green, and disturbingly attractive alien, she isn’t sure if her situation has gotten better or worse.
Knowing that his race is doomed, Mganak has built a peaceful, solitary life for himself. When the lifeboat he salvages turns out not to be deserted after all, he is determined to pass on the responsibility for its inhabitants – no matter how much the curvy little female and her brood arouse his protective instincts.
But Wanda’s alien captors are hot on their trail, his ship is damaged, and the more time he spends with Wanda, the less he wants to let her leave. Could it be that his quiet life is not so perfect after all?
Each book in the Treasured by the Alien series can be read as a standalone romance. This sweet and steamy HEA is intended for mature readers.
National Novel Writing Month is upon us. My goal? To have a working draft of CULLER by the end of the month. So I’ve dusted off a previous manuscript of Dius’s story and found this gem…
The display screen revealed that Therion, that gallivanting turd, answered Dius’s comm. His cousin sprawled in the command chair of Prykimis– just languidly lounging at the helm of an Athelasan battleship.
“Where’s Zver?” By Unholde, for once Dius hoped that Therion wouldn’t give him any shit.“Occupied.” Then a thought passed over Therion’s face, like light chasing a shadow, and jarred him upright. “Dius, take a vid of me pushing some buttons, would you? I’ve updated my scrum code to ‘Commander Thanebanger’ but no one’s taking me seriously. An action shot from Prykimis could be the game changer. This one launches the missiles, right?”
Now, rewrites are coming, but I truly hope this scene stays because Wies in there, too! So, if I can make this scene work, I promise to include an exclusive peek in my November newsletter.
