Ally has wanted to be an astronaut for as long as she can remember, but an eye condition made that dream an impossibility. She views the Cerastean's Bride Program initiative to find human wives as her chance to finally get into space. Finding an alien husband isn't a priority. All Ally wants to do is explore space and take apart alien technology to learn how it works.
After being caught sneaking into engineering one too many times, Ally is assigned to work with Cerastean Scientist L'Zaen to re-engineer an Ostium weapon. Ally loves the work, and L'Zaen's keen intellect. L'Zaen loves how Ally's insatiable curiosity makes every day an adventure. When their work garners an invitation to a festival on the Hisk homeworld, Ally finds her greatest dream coming true.
Join our couple as they geek-out on new tech, join a pilgrimage to an alien festival, work to defeat the Ostium threat and find love.
Saving Ceraste chronicles a group of alien warriors and scientists who have been roaming the galaxy since the destruction of their planet. They believed their generation would be the last until they found earth and its women. Working with the world’s governments, they offer to share their technology—including cures for many common diseases—in exchange for help. Thus, The Bride Program is born. Follow the adventures of the Cerasteans, the bride volunteers, doctors, and others on their adventures to build a better tomorrow.
Dane Griggs lives in Florida with her very-patient husband, two amazing trouble-making children, a bratty long-hair dachshund and too many fish tanks. In her spare time she loves to read (a lot!), write, watch movies, drink wine & pots of coffee and tend her aquaponic garden.
Mrs. Griggs enjoys writing about relationships that evolve and grow over time, with lots of super-hot sex. She strives to put her characters in interesting situations where their strength and wit shine through—no Mary Sues allowed. So grab a bottle of wine and come hang-out in the mind of Dane Griggs and a world of characters you would actually enjoy sharing that bottle with.
