Late for his date. Read a #WeWriWa snippet from CELESTIAL SEDUCTION #8Sunday #romance #scifirom #reading


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

It's been a few weeks since I last participated, as I didn't have anything new ready to share. I'm working on the next TWO Shifter Towers books, but I still don't feel confident to share an excerpt from either of them yet. So, I'm going to share from some of my stories that have winter or holiday scenes. This weekend's snippet is from my first published story, CELESTIAL SEDUCTION, an alien romance.

Set-up: Frey has come to Earth and decided he wanted to stay here rather than return to his home planet. And he has a date, which he's anxious to get to. Unfortunately, it took a lot to convince his commander to let me stay. And now, he might be late for the date.


The ship lurched as it dropped in elevation. Within minutes it landed and the ramp door opened.

“Get out!” His former Mission Commander all but shoved him out of the ship. “You don’t deserve Tandee. I will inform the Chancellor you are dead.”

Although the old Ginnunian meant his words to hurt, Frey smiled as he stepped off the ramp. Staring across the recently harvested cornfield, he spotted his car parked on the side of the road. He rushed across the frosted dirt and corn stalks toward it, with the light reflected from the moon illuminating his path. He’d finally ensured no one from Ginnun would return for him.



Celestial Seduction 
a 1Night Stand story

At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate.

Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.

Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.

  5. He does seem to have his "escape" under control. I hope he finds what he's looking for here on Earth, as he certainly isn't going back if they think he's dead. Great premise!
