Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m excerpting from Alien Mate, my new sci-fi romance. If you were here last week, I’m jumping ahead by a few chapters. Starr has been sent to a frozen planet to become an alien’s mail order bride. In this scene, Torg introduces her to his tribe. A man in the front row has been glowering at her…

“Why did you come here?” demanded the scowling man up front in a feminine voice. He was a she!

Torg tensed. Why? Because of how I might answer, or because like me he sensed animosity? She couldn’t possibly view me as a threat. She could have her choice of men. Okay, I had snagged the chief, the most eligible bachelor of the clan, but if she had wanted him, she probably could have had him before I’d arrived.

He’s mine now, lady.

Book Description

I’m Starr Elizabeth Conner. Earth’s government falsely convicted me of a crime, packed me on a ship with other female felons, and sent us to Dakon, a primitive, frozen wasteland of a planet. Why? Earth needs minerals, and Dakon is desperate for females.

But I’m no barbarian’s ‘mail order bride,’ even if he is super tall, muscular, and the chief of his tribe. He doesn’t want a BBW blonde, either–it’s written all over his chiseled face. He’ll be truly angry if he ever learns what my ‘crime’ was.

I am Torg. I have waited 34 rotations for a mate of my own. With this shipment, I was sure to get a fine, sturdy mate who’ll bear me many daughters. Instead, I receive a small, curvy, pale-haired female who looks at me with anger and fear.

It is only when we ‘kiss’ that I believe things may work out between us. But I’m hearing rumors that Starr and her shipmates are law-breakers. To survive, Dakonians must obey all laws … or be exiled into the frozen wasteland.  Just when I have found her, will I have to send my mate to die?

  1. Oh, that’s definitely a significant change in attitude for Starr. Fabulous snippet! 🙂

  2. The rest of her trip that started last week must have been interesting to rouse this possessive spirit in her.

  3. Love the last line. A declaration if I’ve ever heard one!

  4. Sometimes, all it takes is another woman’s interest in a man to really kick yours into high gear! Source: have fallen for this in my youth. 🙂

  5. Ooh, I sense an interspecies catfight about to happen!

  6. Siren X Star says:

    Uh-oh, I sense some trouble coming!

  7. Diane Burton says:

    Good for her! This snippet shows her change in attitude as well as her spirit.

  8. She does seem to have changed her tune! Now she wants to keep him.

  9. I look forward to reading this book, which is sitting on my Kindle. I wish I could speed read, but I’m rather slow.

  10. Oh yeah, Icha was a piece of work all right! She added to the plot in all kinds of fun ways. Great snippet!

  11. Kim Magennis says:

    I loved that last line, Cara.

    I do however think that Starr may not have considered the implications of a contest with our unfriendly She-male.

  12. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Well, Starr has certainly changed her tune. Wonder what Torg did to accomplish that? Or is Starr coming to terms with her status on this planet and making the best of it? Can’t wait to read this one–just like all your books, Cara!

  13. Nancy Gideon says:

    LOVE her last comment to self! Sounds like she finally knows what she wants.

  14. Sheila H. says:

    Uh-oh! The last line says it all. Sometimes you have to set people straight.

  15. Haha! Don’t mess with a little bad-ass woman from Earth.

    I like how Starr didn’t want him, but don’t let anyone else even think about it. She is smitten. 🙂

  16. I like how she takes ownership. Braver than me!

  17. Well, that explains why the men were confused about their new wives size! Her possessiveness is a good sign, I’d say.
