How insane is it to marry an alien as a publicity stunt?

I’m Sunny Weathers. You probably recognize me from my reality show, Sunny Weathers’ Excellent Adventures. I’ve had to perform a lot of crazy stunts in my career, but this one takes the cake! The producers are sending me to another planet to become an alien’s mail order bride. I’m not allowed to tell anybody it’s a gimmick, and as soon my contract is up, I’ll be leaving planet Dakon. Unfortunately, I hadn’t counted on my attraction to Mr. Tall, “Darq,” and Handsome…

I’m Darq. The moment I laid eyes on the female with pretty mud-colored hair and a sunny smile, I knew she was mine. Competition for females is fierce, and I was determined to claim a mate from the latest shipment from Earth, so I broke the rules. If anyone finds out, my own brother would banish me to the icy wilderness, and I’d lose my mate. I will do anything to keep her…

Alien Attraction is a stand-alone read in the Alien Mate series.

Betrayed by her people, does she dare trust a dragon?

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 an angry king’s retaliation?

What I read in February: 9 books I recommend #SFR #PNR #Nonfiction

Looking for your next good book? Take a look at what I read in February. I recommend all of these. You’ll find a mix of science fiction romance, paranormal romance (dragons and shifters), and some nonfiction titles.

Anna Hackett is THE standard for action-oriented science fiction romance. In Edge of Eon, Earth comes under attack by insectoid aliens. Eon, the only people strong enough to help, have refused to get involved. Earth’s military blackmails an officer into kidnapping a Eon warrior. Everything goes according to plan, until they come under attack by the insects, crash land on a military training planet, and battle the elements, the insects, and their own attraction. Awesome world building and cool characters. A fast-paced, action-oriented read with a lot of steam for good measure. Winner of three SFR Galaxy Awards!

On Amazon

This is my favorite Tasha Black romance so far. Anna is a privateer, who salvages usable items from abandoned spaceships. She’s dropped off on an abandoned ship to tag it for salvage, only to discover she’s not alone. There’s Leo, a handsome alien; a baby who might be the clone of Russian writer Tolstoy, and something evil.

Tolstoy pulled me into the story right away with its awesome world-building. I felt like I was watching the movie, “Passengers.” The characters are likable, and the story kept me guessing. I loved the little origami drone BFF19. It was so cute and clever. The book is worth reading just for BFF19. But Tolstoy overall is great. Read it!

On Amazon

The book opens with a brief quiz about the world. To my surprise, I scored lower than a chimpanzee would–as does everyone else who takes the quiz. Due to incremental changes occurring over time, the world has improved tremendously, but the small year-by-year changes don’t get noticed, and people’s assumptions become outdated. Using research and data, the author shows how much the world has changed, the faulty reasoning leads to misconceptions, and how people can evaluate statistics and data to get an accurate picture. If my description of the book sounds a little boring, don’t judge the book by it. Factfulness is fascinating and eye-opening.

On Amazon

Heroine Leah, a temp worker, goes to work for playboy Hugo, unaware he’s a dragon. He’s determined to seduce her; she’s determined to resist. Eventually, she does succumb, and gets turned into a dragon. It was entertaining to watch the cat-and-mouse game between Hugo and Leah.The first part had the feel of a Harlequin romance of yore when a secretary fell for her rich Playboy boss who was out of her league. Once Leah got turned, the story spun off in a different direction about Hugo fighting to keep the family jewels (Lol, his hoard, not the OTHER kind) and his position in dragon society. The first half was a kick, a lot of fun; the second half was ok.

On Amazon

Do you know why your books aren’t selling? It might not be what you think. David Gaughran takes authors on the reader’s journey from not knowing an author exists on through become a fan. Your work isn’t done just because a reader buys a book. Strangers to Superfans explains why books sell and why they don’t, and gives authors the tools to diagnose marketing problem on every step of the reader’s journey.

On Amazon

Classic Sue Mercury/Sue Lyndon with an innocent (but not naive) human heroine and a powerful, protective alien hero. A sweet love story with steam. Perfect when for when you want something quick and light.

(Sue Lyndon writes kinky SFR. Under the Sue Mercury pen name, she writes steamy, but not kinky SFR).

On Amazon

To get a vial of dragon blood to cure her dying brother, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to bear a dragon shifter’s baby. The dragon shifter who acquires her isn’t happy about it. He’s fulfilling his duty to his clan by reproducing, but he hates humans. They killed his mother.

Can this mating be saved?

I loved the beginning of the book. It hooked me right away. It was an enjoyable read all the way through. Highly recommend for dragon shifter fans.

On Amazon

I liked this book a lot; it was a fun read. I especially enjoyed the hunt part when the dragons were trying to capture a human mate. Exciting stuff! And it was interesting to see how the different women reacted to being chased.

I found the opening a little hard to get into. There were a lot of characters mentioned and keeping track of who was who was a bit of a challenge. I almost didn’t read further, but I was glad I did because it turned out to be a very good read–and the setup in the beginning was important to understanding the story.

On Amazon

Excellent advice on what needs to be in a romance for it to be a compelling, page-turning read. Romancing the Beat is written in an amusing, straight-forward style that’s easy to understand and follow. It’s only 100 pages, so it’s a like a quick tutorial. There’s a link in the book that allows you to download a free worksheet to apply what you learned in the book. I should have read this years ago!

On Amazon

Have you read any of these? What did you like them? What other books do you recommend?

Why so many book cover male models are headless….

If you’ve looked at book covers lately, you may have noticed that often the men’s faces aren’t visible. They’re shown looking down, turning their backs, having only a partial face showing or having lost their heads completely.

Why is that?

Six pack abs and man chests sell books, but that’s not why the guys don’t have faces. I wouldn’t presume to speak for the other authors whose book covers you see here, only myself. But…

It boils down to this: it’s hard (and getting harder all the time) to find cover models with the appropriate expression. To hire a model and a photographer and shoot your own cover is hugely expensive. So, to keep covers affordable, my cover designers uses stock photography. To be a romance cover model, a guy needs a smoldering, come-hither expression. Most of the handsome, buff models on stock photography sites are too happy, too smiley. Or they have that obvious “model” look. Or they’re goofy.

And when you find the perfect guy with the perfect expression–he’s already on a gazillion other book covers.

So, while I would prefer to show the guy’s face, for practical reasons, I often go with a partial face or I cut off the guy’s head, and hope his ripped abs and the background will do the trick.

While we’re on the subject of abs and man chests…there are practical considerations, there, too. Yes, sex sells. But when you’re writing futuristic fiction about aliens and cyborgs, a white T-shirt or a tuxedo doesn’t fit the time or place. Attire eliminates many models from consideration.

For the record, I do have many books with full-face covers, because I do prefer to see a face. This past fall, I updated my Cy-Ops Cyborg Romance series book covers, switching from a couple (full-face female and partial face man) to a full-face man. It was a challenge to find the models I hadn’t already used!

See any book covers you like? Check out the books on Amazon:
Alien Mischief | Warlord Sky | Drago| Auric | Edge of Eon
Hunted by the Cyborg | Darak | Breeder
(UnderFyre will go on preorder later this month)

What do you think about headless man chest covers? Do you love ’em or hate ’em? You can tell me. It won’t hurt my feelings (much).

An interview with P.L. Parker, author of Riley’s Journey #timetravel #SFR

Every now and then, you read a book that hangs with you. Riley’s Journey by P.L. Parker is such a book. It’s about an unsuspecting woman who is sent back in time 40,000 years to become the companion for a modern man hiding. From beginning to end, it is gripping, unique, and so very realistic. It turned into a three-book series: Riley’s Journey, Into the Savage Dawn, and Beyond Tomorrow. Each book has it’s own heroine and hero who get their HEA, but there is an ongoing story thread of modern people struggling to survive in a primitive time. If you haven’t read this series , you need to read it!

I loved it so much, I had to interview the author, P.L. Parker.

Cara: What was the inspiration for Riley’s Journey?

Patsy: I’m a die-hard fan of the Discovery Channel and I watch at least one episode every day.  Though my inspiration comes from many sources, the Discovery Channel is where my inspiration for Riley’s Journey came into being.  Riley’s Journey is based upon the discovery of the Iceman Otzi.  He was murdered high in the Italian Alps over 5,000 years ago. The story behind this ancient male really caught my attention and then the old brain cogs began spinning.   

Cara: Why did you choose to send Nathan back 40,000 years to caveman times? I know he went into hiding, but why not send him back 100 years? Or even 5,000?

Patsy: I thought about many different time frames, but I’ve always been interested about when the Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon both walked the Earth at the same time.  What happened to Neanderthal? Was it murder of a species or interbreeding as some believe? I decided that I wanted to research that time frame and it was easy to bring Nathan’s story to light.  In Riley’s Journey, I lead the reader to believe that Dr. Bethany’s experiments only chanced upon the gateway to that period and so that is where Nathan was sent.

Cara: How much research did you have to do? The world, with the animals, the Cros, the Neanderthals, it all felt so real. Did anything in your research surprise you?

Patsy: I am a huge fan of research, research, research and sometimes I forget to write as I am so involved. It was important to me to set forth factual data about that time frame. I researched the areas where a high concentration of ancient bones were discovered (both Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon), the animals in that time frame, plants, etc.  I also researched the layout of the land, anything I could find that dealt with my story line.  A surprise – one document I reviewed was based on the concept that the cave bears hunted in packs.  These animals were terrible predators and one can only imagine the destruction and terror if they did, in fact, hunt in groups. (Side note:  I was cornered by a bear in Yellowstone Park when I was a young girl and I have had nightmares about that event all my life. What better way to describe what the victims were experiencing?)

Cara: How outdoorsy are you? Do you do any of things in the story (hunt, fish, archery, camping)?

Patsy: I grew up in a hunting/fishing/camping family as most of us born in Idaho are, so I would say I’m somewhat outdoorsy, more in my youth than now. Almost every weekend during the summer months was spent camping someplace where there was a stream or lake nearby.  My father loved to hunt and it was a bad year for us when he didn’t get his deer as we subsisted on the meat through the winter. Beef was expensive and we were a poor family.

Cara: My understanding (I think I read this somewhere) was that you had intended Riley’s Journey to be a standalone, but readers wanted more, so you added two more books. True or False?

Patsy: Very true.  In fact, I have had so many requests to keep the series going, I am thinking about perhaps another one in the series.

Cara: Have you read Clan of the Cave Bear? Did you draw any inspiration from that?

Patsy: I have read Clan and most of the sequels.  I didn’t get much inspiration from that other than I enjoyed reading about that time in history, but I wanted my series to be seen from the eyes of modern man.

Cara: Did you plot the story or pants it?

Patsy: I’m a big-time pantzer! Before I begin to write, I somewhat know what direction my story needs to go but have never actually plotted the story in advance.

Cara: A few characters don’t survive. Did you ever wish you had sent a few more characters back in time so the survivors would have a bigger clan to take on the Cro army?

Patsy: Yes, especially given the fact that I might write another sequel, although I could pick some of the new characters the tribe encounters at the end of Beyond Tomorrow.  I did take into account when I wrote Riley’s Journey that it would be hard to move a larger group through the portal in the short amount of time I allotted for the tribe to embark upon the journey.

Cara: If YOU went back 40,000 years, what items would you want to be sure to take with you?

Patsy: Me personally? Have to laugh at this one. I read once that Elizabeth Taylor said that if she was ever marooned on a desert island, she’d want her eyebrow tweezers.  I would have to agree with her. Other items: a compass, “how to” books on edible foods and making weapons, making traps, skinning, etc., anything I could find in small, portable publications to help. I would also, like Geena, wear 5 pairs of panties so I’d have some for a while.  

Cara: What are you working on now? What’s your latest?

Patsy: I’m currently working on a sequel in my Star Brides (Deg’Nara) Series.  Still trying to name the story but want something that refers to revenge as this is the part where the rebels begin to strike back. This is Cam’s story, she is sassy, strong-minded, determined and at times, vulnerable. So far, I am very pleased with my efforts.

P.L. Parker Bio

I am a dreamer, an avid reader of fiction, a sometimes gardener and an inept crafter. I live in Idaho, with my husband, three sons, daughter-in-law and little granddaughter. I love to travel, but always return to my beloved Idaho. For many years, I performed and taught dance but as time passed, I decided to try my hand at a new endeavor – writing. I have published nine novels and two short stories and am currently working on my fourth novel in the Star Brides (Deg’Nara) Series.

I enjoy life and all its promises.

The research project was only for an “extended period.” No one said anything about forever! Deceived and betrayed, Riley is sent back 40,000 years to be the mate of a man she’d never before met. Her journey will take her into a world fraught with dangers—a world made more treacherous by savage beasts, primitive Neanderthals, and the incursion of the aggressive Cro-Magnon man.

Get Riley’s Journey and the rest of the series on Amazon. Each book is only 99 cents.

Cover Reveal! Under Fyre…my new alien dragon shifter romance

Cover by Jaycee DeLorenzo of Sweet ‘N Spicy Designs

Here it is folks! The cover of Under Fyre (Alien Dragon Shifters 1).

A rough draft of the blurb:

Betrayed by her people, does she dare trust a dragon?

Alien dragon shifters make contact with Earth. At first, they’re friendly, but then inexplicably, the dragons threaten to attack. As a gesture of goodwill to appease the dragons, Earth sends a human woman to become a concubine to one of the king’s sons, Prince K’ev.

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

Little does Rhianna know, but she’s a key link in Earth’s desperate scheme to defeat the dragons, a strike that could backfire with devastating consequences. Will Rhianna figure out the truth in time to save her dragon mate? And if she does, will K’ev be able to save her planet from an angry king’s retaliation?

Under Fyre will be go on preorder later this month (February), for a late spring release.

Under Fyre ~ the Prequel!

Coming in March, a prequel to Under Fyre will be released. It will be available FREE to newsletters subscribers.

The prequel tells what happens when the dragons first discovered Earth. Prince K’ev was visiting the planet and met Rhianna, who was a child at the time. The prequel shows the encounter and sets the stage for what happens between them in the main book.

What I read in January: seven books I recommend #SFR #PNR #Historical #amreading

Want to curl up with a good book? Here’s what I read and thoroughly enjoyed in January:

What do you do when you’ve dedicated your military career and your life to fighting the enemy, and now a truce and alliance have been declared, and now you’re on the same side?

Worse, Admiral Brit Bandar finds herself irresistibly attracted to her sworn enemy, former Warleader Finn Rorkken, who now serves under her command.

Amazing characters, tremendous chemistry, an awesome read. Winner of TWO 2018 SFR Galaxy Awards. An absolute must-read!

On Amazon

I can’t recommend the Riley’s Journey series highly enough! In book one, an unsuspecting woman is sent back 40,000 years to provide companionship for a modern man in hiding. Friends come after them. Each book focuses on a particular couple’s romance, while continuing the story of the entire group trying to survive in a dangerous era. Beyond Tomorrow is third in the trilogy. It is so realistic and well done, you forget you’re reading a book. You are there with the characters.

Riley’s Journey
Into the Savage Dawn
Beyond Tomorrow

Another great read in the Fireblood Dragon Romance series. The stories remain engaging from book to book, and I don’t feel like I’m reading the same characters over and over. I didn’t care for Rast as much as the other dragon heroes, but that was just a personal preference and is no reflection on the quality of the story. I loved heroine Amy’s development and growth, and how she takes charge at the end. Each book in the series is a standalone with a new couple getting an HEA, but overall story arc is building, so I recommend reading in order. For dragon shifter romances, these books are surprisingly believable.

Fire in his Fury on Amazon

I like Regency Romances, but they basically follow the same trope: woman of nobility caught in a compromising position is forced to marry. How to Train Your Baron follows that trope, but then offers something fresh and different. Elsinore attempts to bring her new husband to heel by using a dog training manual. Meanwhile, Quin is embroiled in a mystery over the deaths of his late wife and son. So there’s more to this novel than a simple boy-meets-girl. The characters are fun and likable, the dialogue and writing are witty, and the end was exciting. A very enjoyable read!

How to Train Your Baron

Author Michelle Pillow writes humorous sci-fi/paranormal and this book is no exception. The beginning, with the description of the characters, is particularly funny. A quick, fun read for when you don’t want anything too serious or heavy.

Determined Prince

A fun and funny dragon shifter romance. Clever details with likable, engaging characters. The hero finds his beloved, but she refuses to accept she’s his mate–or even that she’s a dragon herself! Loved the beginning when the heroine pepper-sprayed the dragon (not knowing he was a dragon). This is part of the “Not His” paranormal romance series. It’s FREE. Grab it!

Not His Dragon

A woman whose husband and child have died has isolated herself in a cabin. During a blizzard, a stranger with secrets greater than her own, comes knocking on her door. She lets him in. This is a unique, original (long) short story. It has a surreal quality that I found intriguing, but I sometimes had difficulty following the backstory, and I never was sure of the time or place. It has a fantasy and historical feel, but I wasn’t quite sure what genre I was reading.

Still, it was intriguing and I recommend it.

Ice Bound

I’m always looking for great reads. What did you read in January that you recommend? Leave me a comment.
