He has wings, but this alien is no angel…

Traumatized by the deaths of his family and the destruction of his planet, Wingman lands on Earth in search of a haven and the solitude to nurse his emotional wounds. When a chance decision foils a kidnapping, he’s drawn into the life of a young widow and her daughter. He’s shocked to discover the human woman is his genmate, the one he’s genetically bonded to.

To escape a stalker, Delia and her imaginative, impressionable daughter flee to a small town where nobody can find them. She’s concerned, but not overly so, when her daughter says she invited an angel to her birthday party.

Then the winged alien shows up, and all heck breaks loose. After a rocky first encounter, Delia begins to see Wingman for what he really is—a wounded hero, one of the most protective, sexiest men she’s ever met.

As passion deepens their bond, past dangers resurface to threaten Delia and her child. Will Wingman be able to confront his demons to make the sacrifice necessary to protect them?

Wingman is a standalone read in the Alien Castaways (Intergalactic Dating Agency) series.

New release! INFERNO: Alien Castaways 5, #scifiroma #amreading #romance

Inferno is LIVE. Available on Amazon, Apple Books, BN, GooglePlay, and Kobo.

An alien who looks like the devil. A church  secretary. A match made in heaven…or?

Take nothing at face value. That’s Geneva Walker’s motto in life. But when seven feet of devilishly handsome male complete with horns and a tail strolls into the church where she works as a secretary—even a hardcore nonbeliever would jump to conclusions.

Extraterrestrial Inferno has searched in vain for his genmate, the one woman his Luciferan DNA has chosen for him. When he locates her in the church of a small Idaho town, the last thing he expects is for her to throw him out as though he was Satan himself.

How can he prove to the beautiful skeptic they are meant for each other when he can’t even convince her he’s an alien?

Inferno is a standalone read in the Alien Castaways (Intergalactic Dating Agency) series.

When you wish upon a falling star, er, UFO…

Young widow Kevanne Girardi catches sight of a meteorite streaking across the sky and wishes for a good handyman to help make her rundown lavender farm a big success.

When a dating agency claims to match Earth women with extraterrestrials, fraud investigator Cyan Blue goes undercover as a client to expose the scam. She’s not interested in finding love and certainly not with a pretend alien!

With their planet suffering a critical lack of females, Dakonian men begin emigrating to Earth in search of mates. Concerned about the impact of the mass exodus, Krash joins a dating agency to gain passage to Earth so he can convince his fellow Dakonians to return home.

Two missions are about to collide in a perfect match.

The alien dragon shapeshifters who discover Earth come in peace—at first. Then, inexplicably, they threaten to attack. In an attempt to show goodwill and appease the dragons, Earth sends a human woman to become a concubine to one of the Draconian king’s sons, Prince K’ev.

K’ev would sooner give up his ability to breathe fire than accept a human, but when he meets Rhianna, sparks fly, and his dragon realizes she’s his mate.

Rhianna falls for the hot-blooded prince, unaware she’s a key link in a desperate scheme to defeat the dragons, a strike that could backfire with devastating consequences. Will she figure out what Earth has planned in time to save her dragon mate? And if she does, will K’ev be able to save her planet from the fire of angry king’s retaliation?

Kids in Romance Novels? Yay or Nay? #romancebooks #amreadingromance #scifiromance


Do you like romance novels in which there is a kid or baby as secondary character, such as single mom, single dad, or secret baby romances?

As a reader, I personally prefer romances to focus on the hero/heroine. I’m generally not a fan of kids or babies in romances—although I’ve read some that I enjoyed. However, I’m aware I may not be the norm. My readers, many of whom are parents, may like kids in romance. I totally get that single moms might enjoy reading stories about parents who get a second chance at love. So, I’ve written a few sci-fi romances with kids in them.

The first sci-fi romance I wrote with a child as an actual secondary character was Alien Intention (Alien Mate 3). To be honest, the kid was only in the story because I’d written myself into a corner in the previous book, Alien Attraction (Alien Mate 2). In Alien Attraction, reality TV show star Stormy Weathers is paid a million dollars to become an alien’s mail order bride as a stunt for her show. Stormy needed to be sympathetic; she couldn’t just do it for the money. Voila! She got a nephew who needed a heart operation and becomes a mail order bride to save Devon’s life. Basically, I used Devon as a device. He wasn’t intended to be a real character.

Well…in book 3, Alien Intention, Stormy’s sister Sunny decides to make a better life for herself and her son by becoming a mail order bride, too. Of course, she takes Devon with her to Dakon. So then I was stuck with a kid! As in a real life, a kid character can be a real buzz kill when it comes to romance. Sunny and Romando were never going to be able to get it on with Devon around. I had to get rid of the son.

Since Dakon is a planet caught in an ice age, I thought about sending Devon to military snow camp. Lol. I rejected that idea. When I remembered he’d been separated from his favorite aunt Sunny for more than year, I sent him to stay with Aunt Sunny for a while. Problem solved!

In my Alien Mate spinoff series, Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides, I wrote two books, Sixx and Braxx, with secondary kid characters.  (In Alien Mate human women go to planet Dakon; in the Dakonian series, the alien men come to Earth in search of brides. Same aliens; different settings). Sixx is a Dakonian single dad who needs to find a mate and then return to his son. Braxx is a big brother to a little boy in foster care.

My new Alien Castaways series has one book with a child: Wingman. Delia is a single mom to a young daughter with imaginary playmates. When Izzy insists an angel is coming to her birthday party, Delia assumes it’s one of Izzy’s pretend friends. And then the winged alien actually shows up! The scene where Delia meets Wingman is one of my favorites.

Anyway, I would like to know what YOU like. Do like romances with children or babies in them?

10 Secrets about the Alien Castaways #scifiromance #amreading #IntergalacticDatingAgency

  1. The castaways are six alien refugees, “’Topians,” who fled their planet as it was being destroyed, and came to Earth. The Castaway is the name of their ship.
  2. The ‘Topians were genetically engineered by an alien master race called the Xeno Consortium, who stole DNA from across the galaxy to create new lifeforms.
  3. Eons ago, the Xenos came to Earth, collected DNA, and tinkered with the human genome while they were here.
  4. Each Alien Castaway book is titled after the hero and reflects a trait or characteristic about him. CHAMELEON is a shapeshifter, WINGMAN can fly, PSY reads minds, SHADOW can change from solid to vapor; INFERNO manipulates fire; and TIGRE is part saber-toothed tiger.
  5. Alien Castaways is a brotherhood story, a la The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward, only they’re aliens, not vampires. Each ‘Topian is a different race: Chameleon is a Xeno (yes, his people are the enemy), Wingman is an Avian, Psy is a Verital (from the Latin veritas, which means truth), Inferno is a Luciferan, and Tigre is a Vaporian.
  6. Because of their genetic programming, ‘Topians must find a “genmate,” a female who carries the same genetic marker. For Shadow, it’s especially critical. Due to Xeno malicious trickery, if Vaporians don’t bond with genmates, they’ll die.
  7. The series is set in Argent, Idaho, a fictitious small town (Pop: 500). If you’re familiar with “North Idaho” as the locals call it (as opposed to northern Idaho), Argent is sandwiched between Coeur ‘d Alene and Sandpoint, roughly where Athol is. Argent is named after the Latin word for silver. Silver mining used to be a big industry in North Idaho.
  8. The author (me!) lived in Coeur ‘d Alene for nine years.
  9. Alien Castaways is part of the Intergalactic Dating Agency, a multi-author project of science fiction romances in which aliens come to Earth to meet their humans mates. Each author writes her own series under the IDA umbrella. Those are the unifying factors of the IDA books: Alien hero/human heroine, story set on Earth.
  10. The first four books of the Alien Castaways series have been released, Shadow just last week, Inferno is on preorder for a June 25 release, and Tigre will be published in August. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone.

Shadow: Alien Castaways (Intergalactic Dating Agency) just released! #amreading #romancebooks #scifiromance

Their perfect love has one fatal flaw…

Tragedy sends clairvoyant Mandy Ellison to seek refuge in the small town of Argent, Idaho. Her ESP failed her, and now she’s closing her eyes to the second sight forever—until Shadow, an alien from planet ‘Topia, comes into her healing and wellness center with a request. Will she help him find a mate?

Time is running out for Shadow. His genetics have been programmed with a self-destruct sequence. If he doesn’t bond with a genmate, a female carrying the same mating gene, he eventually will fade from existence. The new clairvoyant in town is his last desperate hope, if she agrees to help him.

But what is an alien to do when attraction leads to love, especially when every indication shows Mandy is not his genmate? Will Mandy find him a mate, hand him over to another woman, and save his life—or will Shadow decide love is worth dying for?
