If I Met An Alien


by Jessica E. Subject

There was a time in my life where if I had met an alien, I would have run away screaming, afraid they would want to abduct me into their spaceship, perform experiments, or maybe even eat me. Yuck! This belief had much to do with the movies SIGNS, and living in a farmhouse surrounded by corn fields at the same time. And the fear traveled with me when we moved back to the city.
It was a fear I had to get over and fast, with children in the house. Except for a fictional movie, I had no basis for this fear. I’ve always believed in aliens, but why do they have to be scary? Why can’t they be sexy? My favorite superhero is Superman, and he’s a sexy alien.
Now, I welcome the chance to meet an alien, especially if they are as hunky as in the books I read and write. Of course, I’d be a little nervous, apprehensive in meeting a being from another planet. But it would be an experience I would never forget.
If the space visitors happen to resemble those in INDEPENDENCE DAY, WAR OF THE WORLDS, or even SIGNS, I’d stare in awe for a few moments before I turned and ran.

Here’s an excerpt from Satin Sheets in Space, with not one, but two sexy aliens:

Soaring through the stars had always been a dream, but the hefty cost of a seat aboard any commercial space flight kept her on the ground. Even though she had no relatives she cared about on Earth, she did have friends she considered her family. Could she leave them all behind? “I—”
He reached up, placing a finger on her lips. “Shh, don’t decide now. Let’s spend the night together, and you can make a decision in the morning.”
Before she had a chance to respond, the wall—more like a curtain—parted as another male, wearing a thin white pair of lounge pants, sauntered toward her. With the same dark mane, blue-tinged skin, and wide build, he could be a copy of the extraterrestrial that lay on the bed with her. Two alien hunks?
Part of her wanted to scream, run, get away from these men—aliens—before they tried to hurt her, or worse. But the idea of these exotic creatures excited her beyond belief.
Galan slid off the bed and stood in front of the other man. “I told you to give me some time alone with her.”
“And I did.” Her date’s carbon copy peeked over Galan’s shoulder. “Now I’m here to help you convince her to stay.”

Satin Sheets in Space Blurb
Danyka's unusual height and radiant red hair earn her the cold shoulder from any guy she approaches, unless he wants to experiment with a giant. So when her boss sets up on a one night stand, she hopes for a prince but expects the usual toad.

As a captivating stranger whisks her away from the ball and introduces her to his equally gorgeous brother, she fears her fantasies have become a nightmare. Has she finally given into impulse only to become a lab rat in an unknown world?

  1. It's hard to know what you'd do if you met an alien, isn't it! I like to think I wouldn't run BUT unless they were humanoid - I would and if they were humanoid - how would I know they were an alien? Well, I suppose they might be blue or something. I'm really shallow - I want to meet a handsome alien - just like yours!

  6. Hi,
    Congratulations on the book. i love the cover and the book sounds wonderful. i love the 1Nstand series. all i can say is if the aliens looked at all like the one in the romance novels they should be more afraid of me than i am of them, they may end up being capture and held as my own personal "slave" . LOL!

    Hi Isabella,
    thank you for the chance at such a great giveaway. i love the cover, it is soooo gorgeous and the book sounds wonderful. i can't wait to get my hands on it. :D

    Did you design the cover/have a lot of say in how it would look? i know some authors have little to no say in how their book will look in the end.
