Finishing the Story…

Buy Alien Lover HERE!
By Jessica E. Subject
While Alien Lover was my third erotica story in The Edge line to be released, it was the first I started writing. When I learned about this new line, the idea of a woman searching in space for her lost love came to me almost immediately. The problem was, I didn’t know how to finish the story. I’d written to the point where Molly is no longer alone on her ship, but had no idea what happened next.
The problem is, as much as I try to plot, stories always take a different turn when I’m writing them. So, I try to keep the outline as loose as possible. In the case of Alien Lover, there was no outline. I didn’t even have a title at the time. And I couldn’t think past that scene.
So, I put it aside and wrote several others. But I’m anal in that I don’t like to have unfinished stories. They bug me and nag at me until I return to write them again. When I went back to writing Alien Lover, the rest of the story came to me with a twist I didn’t expect. Then a title fit into place.
The excerpt below ends just before my original stopping point. To find out what happens next, well, you’ll just have to read the story.
Alien Lover Blurb:
Unconvinced of her fiancé’s demise, Molly combs the galaxy to search for him. As her supplies run low, she is forced to turn around and set a course for Earth, alone. But, a Moloxian Starcruiser halts her retreat, and the single passenger transports onto her ship without permission. Taser in hand to defend herself, she is startled as the form remolds into her fiancé. Has Diego found her or is her tired mind playing tricks?
Now available from Decadent Publishing and other ebook retailers.

Excerpt:
“Incoming message,” the computer chimed. “Source located one nautical mile away, starboard.”
She brushed her hands across the console and brought the video feed from the ship’s right hand side onscreen. The image quivered, and she groaned when it finally became clear. A Moloxian starcruiser.
Shit! I just want to go home. During her search, the crews of the few Moloxian scavenger ships she’d come across had been willing to let her pass if she traded with them. But she had nothing left, only enough food and fuel to reach Earth, and even then she’d be hungry during the last leg of her journey.
“Play.” She decided to listen to their demands, give them what they wanted, and move on. She had no other choice. Starvation was a better alternative than providing the sexual services they’d always hinted at. The Moloxians, though humanoid, had scale-covered bodies. So incompatible with her own. She wouldn’t survive unscathed and didn’t sleep around anyway.
“Prepare to be boarded.” The deep computerized voice shook her. No slur, and therefore not Moloxian. Who the hell was he?
She didn’t have time to contemplate. Her blood boiling, she gripped the arms of her chair. The creature, whatever species he happened to be, planned to come onto her ship. No one boarded without her permission, which she would not grant. At the sound of her transporter, like the pitter-patter of rain on Earth, she leaped from her seat and spun around. She grasped her bolt stunner and pointed it at the figure materializing into solid form before her eyes.
With a huge outline, the male boarding her ship would only bring her trouble. If his strength matched his size, she had one option: to kill him. She took in his bare, broad chest, sculpted abs, and muscled arms. His tanned skin shone with brilliance, as if the sun rested behind him. She gazed up at his dark hair and warm brown eyes. He studied her with an intense stare while his soft lips curved into a smile.
She gasped. “Diego?”

  2. WE have our backyard to finish. It's been almost two years since we were supposed to have it done. It has just taken much longer and is harder to do than we expected. We're not spring chickens anymore.

    Thanks for the giveaway. woolfcindy@aol.com

    1. Hey Cindy! My hubby has part of a backyard to finish, too. He's done most of it and put up the fence, but one side is all mud. He's not sure what to do with it yet. He did finish our bedroom by the December 1 deadline I gave him, though. :)
