Excerpt:


Will's eyes looked away for a brief moment, and something else held his attention. He pushed her behind him, and she voiced a complaint before a gunshot rang out. He suddenly slumped to the floor at her feet.

Naomi screamed. She dropped to the floor beside him and saw blood spreading further and further along the front of his white dress shirt. She pushed against his chest, unsure what to do.

More shots rang out and passengers were screaming and taking refuge on the floor and beside the chairs in front of the sliding doors. A pair of bright orange tennis shoes ran by and narrowly avoided stepping on Will's limp hand.

Tallen, which happens to be a prince from the planet Vezul, comes to Earth seeking a woman to become his princess. He lands just outside Las Vegas, where he spies a buxom beauty named Cari. He comes to her aid when a casino patron gets a little too grabby with Cari, whom he has already decided will be his princess.

Cari lives paycheck to paycheck in her dead-end, depressing job. When a gorgeous stranger approaches her, she assumes he must be crazy with the talk of making her his princess and having his royal babies. But when he comes to her aid, she realizes she doesn't want him to get in trouble for defending her honor. She rushes him out the back door, only to have him kiss her.

When his technology shocks her into passing out, she finds herself on a spaceship that insists on being called "John Wayne" with this gorgeous alien on a one way trip to the planet Vezul.

Will an interspecies relationship actually work, and does love truly conquer all?

Excerpt:
"They are. What do you mean by your world?" Cari put her hands on her hips. Yes, provoking the crazy man was probably not wise, but she was angry now! Some ass-spanking pervert accosts her, Mr. Tall Dark and Crazy saves her, so she saves him from being arrested, and he repays her by kidnapping her.

"Your world… Earth. I am sorry. Did you wish to see it before we left?"

"We left Earth?" She laughed; she could not help it. Until he muttered something indistinguishable and the walls, ceiling, and floor disappeared. Cari screamed and grabbed his black skin tight suit, except she wasn't falling. How can I be standing among the stars? "Is that Earth?" Her voice squeaked as she spotted what looked like the pictures that NASA released from roving satellites.

"Yes. Is this what you call hugging? It is quite pleasing."
