Help! I’m in love with an alien! by Jessica E Subject

Hello readers! I’m here with the heroines from my new box set, An Alien to Love, to engage in a panel discussion with them about dating an alien, or aliens, as is the case for one guest. So, being as we don’t have a lot of time, let’s get started.

Ladies, what was your first reaction when you learned your date was an alien?

Ava: I was shocked. I mean, I knew Nate came from a different planet, but I didn’t expect him to be Claustrian. Though, it explained why he vanished from my life all those years ago.

Carrie: You were shocked? I didn’t even know aliens existed until I met Frey.

Danyka: Me, too! I mean, I believed, but I never expected to come face-to-face with an extraterrestrial, let alone end up the soul mate to two of them.

Melinda: I was happy. I write about relationships with aliens all the time. Though, I never believed my childhood neighbor to be from another planet. His reaction to my finding out was much worse. Thank goodness he got over that.

Skylar: I’m not sure I can answer your question, since I’m not from Earth. But, when I learned the identity of my date, I ran. I thought he planned to take me back to the tentacled space pirate I was supposed to marry.

 

An Alien to Love teaser 11

All interesting reactions, but your dates seem to have worked out in the end. So, let me in on a secret. What’s the worst thing about being with a man from another planet?

 

Carrie: I couldn’t give birth to my daughter in a hospital. I had to disappear when I was ready to deliver, and remain in hiding for the early part of her life.

Danyka: Yes, it’s hard to live on Earth when the government wants to dissect the man or men you love.

Melinda: Wow, I hadn’t thought of that. Cooper has lived here all his life, but… Maybe we won’t have children.

Well, this is depressing. How about you all tell me the best thing about being with an alien.

Skylar: Finally, a question I can answer. He understands me. And he makes me happy.

Carrie: [nodding] He knew what I longed for from the moment we met.

Melinda: He’s all my fantasies come true.

Danyka: Fine, I’ll say it. The sex is out of this world.

Ava: Yes, explosive.

[The is a lot of smiling and nodding around the room.]

And on that note, I’ll let you all go. I know some of you have a spaceship to catch. Thank you for taking the time to chat with us today!

Before the story – An interview with Adam from Alien Admirer by Jessica Subject

Hello Adam, and thank you for coming with me to visit Literary Lagniappe. Can you tell us about the first time you saw Sera?

Adam: The very first time? She was with her husband, looking over the land where their dream home would be built. I found her extremely attractive, but what could I do? She was married.

And when did things change?

Adam: That would be the first time I saw her after her husband was killed. It wasn’t a very pleasant time for either of us. She was trying to decide if she still wanted to live in the dream home that her husband helped my father’s company to build, or if she wanted to remain in the city where they had lived. Her house had already sold, so she had no choice about moving regardless of what she decided.

I felt all of her hurt, her pain, her confusion. I couldn’t be near her without my head feeling as though it would explode. My father told me the reading of her emotions is a sign that she is my soul mate. I doubted that at first, but the more time I spend with her and her children, the more I believe.

What drew you to her?

Adam: Besides the soul mate connection, it would be her innocence. Yes, she has been married and has two wonderful children, but she is the sweetest person I know. And in a bathing suit, she’s downright sexy. I can’t stop staring at her, wanting to rip the material off and make her mine.

What is your favorite part of her?

Adam: I want to say everything, but it has to be her smile. Considering she’s been so sad and heartbroken, it’s nice to see her happy, even if just for a moment.

And what do you have planned for your relationship with Sera?

Adam: There’s really not much I can do. I just have to wait for her. She keeps telling me she’s not ready to start dating again, but I’m hoping to convince her otherwise. I think it helps that her children are always excited to see me.

Giveaway!!

Leave a comment telling me what you would do if you found out your neighbor was an alien. One winner will receive an ebook of the first book in the series, Alien Adoration. Contest ends 11/17 at 11:59PM EST.

Available From:

Amazon (US/UK/Canada) | All Romance | Smashwordsmore

Excerpt:

What is it going to take to convince her I want her? On the ride home, he’d persuaded himself to give up on Sera. Until he’d seen her on the porch. He had to seize what might be his lone opportunity.

“Why do you have such a problem accepting that I’m attracted to you?”

She faced him again, her cheeks glowing with color. “I don’t have a problem with that. In fact, I’m flattered. I have a problem with how much I’m attracted to you, how even on my date, I couldn’t get you out of my head.”

It was all the invitation he needed. Closing the space between them, he held her, pressing his lips to hers. Sera moaned, her body tight against his. She didn’t push him away, instead wrapping her arms around him, running her foot up and down the back of his calf.

He clutched her thighs, pulling her up to straddle his waist. Every moan encouraged him to keep going. He wanted more.

“Inside,” she said in a breathless whisper. “Take me into the house.”

All right! Grasping and fumbling with the handle, he managed to open the door without letting her go. Focused on her in his arms, he shuffled around blindly until his knees met her couch. He laid Sera on the cushion, but she clung to him.

“No, my bedroom. And be sure to close the door.”

Her room? Holy shit! Before that moment, he’d expected several days of trying to win her over before she invited him to her room, if she ever even acknowledged his feelings.

He carried her up the butcher block wood steps, to the bedroom he’d helped build. While he’d helped build every part of the house, the master bedroom remained the one room he hadn’t entered since Sera moved in.

Sacred, just like her body.

Confessions of a Mall Santa by Jessica Subject

Hello out there! I’m Andy. My author, Jessica E. Subject asked me to come here today to talk about being a mall Santa. Let me start off by saying this is not my ideal job. I didn’t dream about being a mall Santa as a kid. I’m actually an actor, but I don’t seem to be getting any high-paying gigs. Being a dead body doesn’t pay that well. So, I took this job to earn some extra money before the holidays.

And being a mall Santa is not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s winter, which means cooler temps in this part of the country. That also means kids coughing, sneezing and wiping their runny noses on me. My costume is a veritable germ factory by the end of the day. I always carry Lysol with me, wipes, spray, everything I can get. I also use a lot of body powder to absorb the sweat, and suck on breath mints all day. But that’s not the worst.

Do screaming, crying kids give you a headache? Yeah, me, too. Imagine eight hours of that? And please, change your kid’s diaper before sitting them on Santa’s knee. I have wound up with several wet and dirty knees, only upsetting the kids next in line.

Of course, there are always the kids who sit on your knee and say, “I know you’re not Santa” only to cause heartbreak to the other kids standing in the lineup. Then, with their sad faces, they turn to their mothers and fathers to ask if the other kid is telling the truth.

Then, there’s pet day, a surefire way to get licked, humped and peed on. Thank goodness it’s only for a couple of hours. I’ll gladly take screaming kids after that.

As for what kids ask for, there are those who have a mile long list of toys, those that ask for one gift for them and someone else, and sometimes the kid who doesn’t ask for anything. They just sit and stare. Every once in a while, a child comes along and asks for something that absolutely breaks my heart, like when they ask for their parent to come back, whether they left the family or passed away. Sometimes a child even asks for selfless things like world peace or to find a cure for cancer.

All in all, the job is worth it for the many kids that I am able to make smile. I don’t promise them anything, but I do listen. And for the not-so-good moments, I am thankful for the excuse that I have to leave for a few moments to feed my reindeer.

And then there was the day Claire sat on my knee…

Giveaway!!

Leave a comment telling one of your memories of Santa. One randomly selected winner will receive Hey, Santa in ebook format plus book swag. No purchase necessary. Contest is international. Must be 18 or older to enter. Good luck! Contest ends 10/3 at 11:59PM EDT.

Hey, Santa

An Alien for the Holidays story

By Jessica E. Subject

Erotic Sci-Fi Romance

ISBN: 978-0991932016

 

She doesn’t want a lot for Christmas…

Claire Otton dreads spending another holiday alone. When her best friend convinces her to approach the sexy mall Santa, she takes the chance and asks him out, hoping for so much more.

He’s waiting under the mistletoe…

Although Andreas Castellanos blends in on Earth, he knows he will never belong. But when the gorgeous woman he’d been staring at invites him to dinner, he has a hard time saying no.

All they’re asking for…

Can these two lonely souls find magic together or will their secrets steal their chance of a happy Christmas?

Available From:

Amazon US | Canada | UK | more

Excerpt:

“You can’t be serious.” Claire mustered the dirtiest look possible for her best friend.

Tiffany held out her hands and air-squeezed the man’s firm rear end from a distance. “C’mon. Look at that ass.”

“Yes, but a Santa Claus? How do I know what he looks like under that suit and beard?” Imagining removing the white hair to find a wrinkled old man, she shuddered.

“Only one way to find out.” Smacking Claire’s butt, Tiffany urged her forward. “Go ask him.”

She planted her feet. Thank goodness she hadn’t worn heels for their marathon shopping trip two days before Christmas. “If you’re so interested, why don’t you?”

Tiffany rolled her eyes, sighing. “Because I’m engaged to be married to the love of my life. You’re the Grinch who needs to get laid.”

“I’m not a Grinch,” she snapped. Breathing deeply, she counted backwards from ten. “I’m sorry. This is a very stressful time of year for me.”

“I know.” Tiffany cupped her elbow. “I just want to see you happy at Christmas again. It doesn’t have to be a miserable holiday anymore. That’s part of the reason I dragged you with me today.”

She swallowed the lump in her throat, tears welling already. Please don’t let me turn into a blubbering mess in the middle of the mall. While she appreciated her friend’s concern, she coped better on her own. “I…I should go home. I can’t pretend it didn’t happen.”
