#8Sunday: From Alien Mate…Starr gets a little competition…

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. Here’s a recap of what’s been happening: Starr Conner was a falsely convicted of crime and shipped off to another planet to become an alien’s mate. She wasn’t happy about it at first, but has since warmed up to Torg. But alas…now Starr has some competition from an alien female. “Icha” brings Torg a mating gift. We’re in his POV…

“You shouldn’t have,” I said. Icha gave nothing without expectation of reciprocity, but to refuse her gift would be an insult. Reluctantly I accepted the proffered basket.

She did not step away as she should have, but remained close. I was a hunter. I’d taken down kel many times my size, in addition to other more dangerous animals. I’d fought and defeated other men to win my seat as clan leader. I did not retreat from tough decisions. I survived in a cold, harsh land that killed without mercy.

Handling a predatory female was outside my ken.

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. I like how he feels so helpless when it comes to women. But, he’s going to have to do something about her. Great snippet! 🙂

  2. It sounds like this woman — a ‘predatory female’ — is worst than just a rival.

  3. I love how his brain works. He might need help with this one!

  4. Icha was quite a character all right! Great snippet…

  5. Uhoh. What will he do? Will his new mate come to his rescue?

  6. Sue Barr says:

    Yummy snippet. I’ve always said females are more cunning and ferocious than men. We only allow them to see our soft side, but watch out if we need to protect what’s ours.

  7. I love this! Great snippet.

  8. Love that last line! He’s trapped between a rock and a hard place–now what will he do?
