Find out what happens when a curvy gossip queen meets her alien match.

Janet: When I accepted the job at a Cerastean healing center, I only intended to focus on the work at hand: saving patients from cancer. And maybe some gossip. There is nothing I love more than juicy gossip. It turns out that a medical facility filled with humans and aliens creates a treasure trove of romance, scandal and fabulous rumors. This facility is feeding my Gossip Queen soul. But there might actually be something, or someone, I could love more. He's sweet, protective, loves dogs, has a body to die for… And he’s an alien.

Could I actually love an alien more than spilling tea?

D'Xurrl: As head of security for Deerfield Medical facility, the humans I am tasked with protecting certainly keep me on my toes. I've learned the word 'shenanigan' since coming to Earth, and I have found that humans encapsulate the term perfectly. One vivacious human, in particular, has captured my attention with her sweet scent, her love of gossip and her curvy body. I want Janet for my own, but it is a dangerous time for my people. Until the threat has passed, I need to stay away from this luscious human female. Now I just need to make sure my heart and body follow my orders.

When events beyond their control test D'Xurrl and Janet's budding romance, can their relationship withstand the turbulence?

This is a quick side story about our favorite gossip queen and her alien D'Xurrl. The next book will return to the main Saving Ceraste storyline.

Threesome's Guide to the Galaxy

Saving Ceraste Book 3 | July 30th, 2019

In space, no one can hear you moan.

Ever since avoiding death at the hands of a mad scientist, Chelsea has been hiding in the ductwork of an alien space station. When two new victims are brought in, Chelsea sees her chance to escape. Should she take this opportunity to get away or attempt to rescue the two sexy aliens from the scientist's clutches? What's a girl to do?

Take a journey with Chelsea, D'Rett and L'Tarne as they attempt to flee and return to Earth. Their mission is to escape and get vital information to their people. They have a beat-up space ship, bad guys on their tail, new planets to explore and a mutual attraction they are trying to resist.

Note: Menage stories are not everyone's cup of tea and I was worried about alienating (no pun intended) some of my fans. To address this issue, I decided to write books 3 and 4 so that you could skip this book and still follow the overall storyline of Saving Ceraste in book 4 The Bride Program Honeymoon.

Bedside Manners for Aliens Cover

Bedside Manners for Aliens

Saving Ceraste Book 2 | May 6th, 2019

Me: I just can’t stop thinking about you. I know we can’t go further, but I have an idea. Maybe we could sext?
L’Vect: What is that?
Me: Sexting is when you tell the other person how you want them to touch themselves, and that person describes what it feels like. It’s a sex game.
L’Vect: Yes. I want to sext. What do we do next?
Me: I will go first.
Serena: Aliens have landed on earth and offered a cure for cancer in exchange for human brides to save their race. The program has led to protests and, increasingly, violence. But as a hematologist specializing in leukemia, I still jump at the chance to work with the Cerastean doctors to help cure patients. I’m assigned to work with Physician L’Vect who is well—he’s different. But there is something...
L’Vect: I have been told that I am socially inept around my own people, and I am even worse with the humans. I do not pick up on their most basic social cues. I want to help our patients, but all I can scent is their fear when I speak with them. Luckily Dr. Serena Salcedo has offered to instruct me in ‘bedside manners.’

The Bride Program

Saving Ceraste Book 1 | March 24th, 2019

Maya Arnold was leading a normal life, working and helping care for her sister, until the Cerasteans arrived. Offering a cure for cancer if enough women volunteer as brides, Maya jumped at the chance. Saving her sister was her only goal. She never expected to actually fall in love with an alien, or find best friends in the other bride volunteers.

Since the mysterious destruction of Ceraste, Commander D’Avii and the surviving males have been searching the galaxy for a new home. Finding Earth and its women was a miracle. Like most Cerasteans, he finds humans to be fascinating creatures -- none more so than bride volunteer Maya. His attraction to her is instant and intense. Still he knows Maya can never choose him, a warrior, with so many higher-caste scientists seeking their own mates. To do so would shame the scientists and tear the last of his people apart. Yet he aches at the loss of something he never even had.
