Hello everyone! Today is the 40th week of My Sexy Saturday. Yes, author Lynn Crain has been hosting all of us authors for forty weeks now. A huge shout out to her!
What happens when we’re having no sexy? When our characters are too tired, too ill or just not in the mood. We realized even though we talk about the sexy and doing the sexy and everything sexy, sometimes that just doesn’t enter the picture. Sometimes it is truly about the love between two people when the sexy fails them for some reason.
Today, I’m sharing seven from my upcoming release, HIS ALIEN VIRGIN.
Set-up: In this new adult sci-fi romance, Daran sees his date for the first time. And while he feels the sexy, he’s not able to follow through. Why? Read the excerpt then the blurb to find out.
She drew nearer, her appearance becoming more defined. A silver dress hugged her body, both protecting and giving a hint of the delicious treat inside. The candlelight reflected off her wide eyes, leaving them glowing like sapphires. With most of her hair pulled back, the remaining long blue tendrils framed her face and highlighted her matching lips. But her radiant, mesmerizing eyes brought about his recognition. He knew her. His stomach sank along with all hopes for the evening.
About the story:
She is desperately seeking freedom…
On the eve before her twenty-first birthday, Skylar steals a ship and escapes from the planet Rebed. She refuses to be another wife to the slimy space pirate that is her betrothed. After hearing of her brothers’ own success, she applies to the 1Night Stand service on her way to Earth, hoping Madame Eve can find a man to be her hero, to make her feel special, even if for only one night.
He is trying to fit in…
Daran traveled to Earth years ago, and he still struggles to fit in on the planet. But when his boss suggests a blind date, he reluctantly agrees. What would happen if anyone found out about his alien ancestry?
And they are not at all meant to be together…
As best friend to Skylar’s brothers, Daran has always forced himself to fight his attraction to her. He cannot see her as anything more than a little sister, someone to protect. So, why did Madame Eve match them together?
Has Madame Eve made a huge mistake, or will Daran tread into forbidden territory to be with the one woman he’s always wanted, and become the hero Skylar craves?
