Cooper learns the identity of his date in HER ALIEN HERO #MySexySaturday #1NightStand @DecadentPub

My Sexy SaturdayHello and welcome to the 86th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.

Today’s theme is…

A LONG TIME SEXY

This is a perfect theme for my new release, HER ALIEN HERO, as the hero and heroine grew up as neighbors and adored each other from afar. Enjoy!

Set-up: Cooper learns his best friend, Tabitha, has set him up on a 1Night Stand and is furious. But, she insists he look at the picture of his date before he leaves the hotel.

Dammit. He hadn’t noticed a picture. What difference would seeing the woman make anyway? He refused to stick around for some blind date whether with a troll or a super model. He’d had enough blind dates in his lifetime, and they all ended the same way, with the woman departing when she noticed something “off” about him. He’d learned to never stick around long enough for them to think about it any further, often excusing himself to use the restaurant bathroom and leaving instead, paying the bill on the way out.

In order to placate Tabitha—she’d torment him if he didn’t look—Cooper picked up the envelope and fished inside.

Thick, filmy paper brushed along his fingertips. He pulled out the rectangular object to see the identity of the woman about to be stood up.

No, it couldn’t be. Wavy red hair framed the woman’s ivory face. A smattering of freckles highlighted her cheekbones, drawing his attention to her radiant clover-colored eyes. Long ago, he’d imagined kissing her full lips, slipping his hands under her tight shirt to stroke her warm skin. While his former neighbor had grown up in the best of ways over the years, she still resembled the girl he’d fantasized about for most of his early teen years.

His phone vibrated again. Well?

Fine, I’ll stay. He couldn’t pass up an evening with Melinda. How had Madame Eve found her after all these years? There had never been anything between them when they’d lived next door to each other. Why was she all of a sudden his date? He’d only mentioned her once or twice to Tabitha. Had his friend remembered, and had Madame Eve tracked his old neighbor down?

Regardless, if they had nothing more than one night together, he planned to fulfill as many of his fantasies as possible.

April Fools For Love Event & HER ALIEN HERO release day! #FFL #amreading #scifirom

SFR-Fools-ForLove

Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting me during the April Fools for Love event! A huge thank you to Corinne and SFR Station for organizing this event!

When it comes to love, many of us do foolish things when it comes to the person who has claimed our heart. I know I have. Well, in my new release, HER ALIEN HERO, the hero was already doing foolish things when it came to the heroine back when he was just a teenager. Here’s an excerpt beginning with the heroine, Melinda, speaking…

“Don’t you remember the grade-nine dance? It was the only one I ever remember you coming to. This song came on, and a bunch of couples made their way to the middle of the gymnasium. But, no matter where people moved, I always had a clear line of sight to you.” She squeezed his fingers. “I kept hoping you would ask me to dance, but you never did.”

His chest tightened. He remembered the night he’d snuck out of the house and rode his bike through the city to see if she’d decided to attend. How he’d wanted to ask her to dance, spend even a moment in her company, but his mother had warned him if anyone ever found out what he was, he’d end up in a lab before she even knew he’d been taken. And during puberty, he’d had far less control of his form. Even touching a girl would have, without a doubt, taken away all his ability to manipulate his image. Cooper had never wanted to take the chance. He’d dragged his gaze away from her, after staring at her for an entire song, and left, riding home in the pouring rain. But after years of practice and no one finding out, he took more risks, tonight the biggest of all.

“Well, Melinda, I know we’re not in grade nine anymore, but would you like to dance?”

Last Sneak Peek at HER ALIEN HERO before release day #TeaserTuesday #1NS @DecadentPub #sfrgtt

SFRG Teaser Tuesday

Hello everyone! This is my second Teaser Tuesday post with the Sci-Fi Romance Group, and I’m excited to share another teaser from HER ALIEN HERO which releases tomorrow.

The Sci-Fi Romance Group is a Facebook group filled with authors and readers who enjoy science fiction romance. There is a limited amount of promo allowed in the group, but it is a place to discuss the genre in books, movies, television formats, and more. You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/the.scifi.romance.group/

About HER ALIEN HERO… This is my eighth 1Night Stand story, and the second that takes place in Ottawa. All the stories in the Romancing the Capital sub-series of this line take place during the upcoming conference of the same name which I will be attending next month. My story will release on April 1, 2015, so here’s one final excerpt…

HerAlienHero_500x750Melinda waved her fingers over the touch pad. “There’s no way she could have found me a match already, or even read through everything I wrote. Should I click on it? I mean, what if it’s spam or a virus—I would lose all my stories.”

“Open it!” Lauren perched behind her, peering over her shoulder. “You backed up all your work before you left home, remember? Maybe Madame Eve predicted your application would come in today and is a speed reader. Who knows? Please don’t keep me waiting any longer.”

Hand vibrating from nerves, Melinda brought the pointer to the message, clicked, and read.

Bonjour Melinda,

I’ve been waiting a great deal of time for your application. I’ve had the perfect man for you all along. You will meet him at seven tonight in room 316 for dinner and an evening filled with whatever activities you choose. I have attached his photograph so you will know who you are meeting.

Affectuesement,
Madame Eve

Melinda’s lunch threatened to make a reappearance. This is all wrong. Her date had to be someone who believed himself an alien. No one else would match the description of her ideal man. Thank goodness she had a reason to cancel. “It’s not going to work tonight. I am having dinner with all of you, with my readers. I spent a lot of money on my Mad Hatter costume.”

Gripping her shoulder, Lauren squeezed. “Yes, I know, but you are going to skip it. No way I’m letting you pass on this opportunity. Besides, I’m sure your fans would love to read about how you met your happily-ever-after guy at a conference.” She clicked on the attachment. “Let’s see what this guy looks like.”

As the picture popped up on screen, they gasped, Melinda in pure shock.

“He’s hot.” Lauren leaned closer to the computer. “Look at those muscles. And such a strong jaw…. Wow! I’m so jealous. Can I pretend I’m you tonight?”

Melinda squinted at the screen, a headache developing in her temples. He wasn’t at all the man she’d expected to be matched up with. Not even a guy she’d expected to see again. “I know him. He’s my…. Oh God, I know him.”
