A Dance Club in a Space Station?

Unknown Futures is the combination of two stories. After readers of Celestial Seduction asked for more Frey and Carrie, I decided to write more of their story. But my muse was also toying with another 1Night Stand story which would take place in a dance club. When I hit a road block with Frey and Carrie, I conceited, and my muse went wild.

A dance club in a space station complete with extra-terrestrials of all sorts, and two heroines... (Sometimes I wonder where these ideas come from, yet I never want them to stop.)
So, I needed music for this story, a playlist containing songs with a heavy beat. I needed songs that I would dance to. Although some of these are old-school (I pumped up the jam during my first year of camp), here is part of my playlist for Unknown Futures:

Afraid by Nelly Furtado
Big Girls Don’t Cry by Fergie
Boom Boom Pow by The Black Eyed Peas
Don’t Phunk With My Heart by The Black Eyed Peas
Hook Me Up by The Veronicas 
I’m Into You by Jennifer Lopez
Just Dance by Lady Gaga
Let The Beat Control Your Body by 2 Unlimited
Take Me On The Floor by The Veronicas 

I will randomly draw a name from those leave a comment to WIN an ebook copy of Unknown Futures.

Unknown Futures Blurb
Attacked as a young adult, Jewel is left scarred and alone. She applies to the 1 Night Stand service, believing no one can see past her appearance to love her. But she doesn’t expect to be sent to a space station where her date could be any number of unusual alien species.

Flavia left everything behind to be one of five humans working for the Space Service space station. Extremely homesick, she is excited to learn she will be a guide to a woman from Earth visiting the station for a couple days. She is immediately drawn to the petite woman, seeing past her scars to her true inner beauty, stirring unforeseen desires.

Unfortunately, Jewel is there for a date which Flavia hasn’t been told about. Can she contain her lust and simply show her a good time? Or will she let her desire lead them into an unknown future?
