I’ve been doing a little research on Tasers:
- A Taser is fired from a distance and releases two electrified darts. The darts embed in the skin. As long as the shooter continues to shoot, it applies the shock.
- The shock, besides causing pain, actually immobilizes the person. He can’t move.
Once the shooter releases the trigger, the pain is gone and the person can move again.
- In costrast, with a stun gun, you have to get close enough to TOUCH a person, and it only causes pain. It’s usually enough to stop them, but if a person can fight through the pain, they can still fight.
- If a cop is firing a Taser, he’ll shout “Taser, Taser Taser” to warn everyone to get out of way so they don’t get shocked.
There just might be a little scene in Aton: Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides (Intergalactic Dating Agency) that involves tasers (*whistles*)…
Aton story blurb
For an alien and a human girl, all’s fair in love and courtship…
Attorney Toni Sutterman’s professional success is an open-and-shut case. Her love life? Not so much. With marriage-minded men in short supply on planet Earth, she joins the Intergalactic Dating Agency hoping for a good match with an extraterrestrial. When her alien mate finally arrives, he proves beyond all doubt to be the man of her dreams: tall, sexy, romantic, and totally devoted to her. So what if there’s a bit of gray area about how he got here?
Aton of planet Dakon doesn’t mean to pull a fast one. He has every intent to play by the rules until false accusations get him escorted from the spaceship just before it blasts off. No spurious allegations will keep him from his mate, so he makes his own way to Earth to claim the female he was promised. As soon as he sees Toni, he recognizes her as his Fated mate and focuses on courting her and beginning their life together.
But when a rival discovers the truth and administers some rough justice, will Toni be willing to break the rules and become Aton’s partner in crime to save their future…or will she play by the book?
