With: Colleen S. Myers
I don’t know if you are like me, but since you like Paranormal Romance, I’m pretty sure you are! I love PNR, Sci Fi, Fantasy all of it. We get enough reality in Real Life that I want my reading to be fantastical and amazing. Some of my favorite authors are Ilona Andrews, Nalini Singh, Patricia Briggs and Kim Harrison.
I could never write like them but I like to try. My stories focus on thoughtful premises, sexy scenes and fun. My first series that I ever wrote is near and dear to my heart. It is about a girl kidnapped by aliens but there is a reason behind all of it.

Ten miles. We could do that. I glanced at the suns. Time here was not as easy to track compared to home. So far, we’d had two revolutions of the smaller sun around the bigger, so that put us in mid-afternoon, I thought. We still had plenty of light. Assuming an average foot speed of a mile every fifteen minutes or so put us at getting there in a little over two hours.
I could handle that. I stood.
Time to trudge.
“Ready?” Marin stopped mid-chew and swallowed.
“I can eat as we walk.” He grabbed his own pack while I slid mine on my shoulders. The trail in front of us was clear with the exception of a few random flowers at the edges. How they survived my fire, I didn’t know.
I picked one as we walked. The petals were red and frilly. When my fingers stroked its surface, the tips of the flower contracted, and the hymen darted out to sting my thumb.
Marin twirled. “What happened?”
“A random carnivorous plant.”
He snorted and grabbed my hand. “Let me see.” His fingers stroked along my boo-boo, the touch light, raising goose bumps.
I held my breath.
His lips curled at the corners. He brought my hand up to his lips and feathered his mouth along my fingers. “Better?”
“Yes.” The word was breathy.
I cleared my throat and tugged my hand away. So unfair, how sexy I found him. “Looks like we are getting close.”
His smile grew wider. “Yes, I do think we are close.” Oh boy. That look was deadly to my resolve. I cleared my throat. “To the lab.” “That as well.” I rolled my eyes and darted ahead. His laughter followed my retreat.
19 year old Elizabeth Camden survived it all, the experiments, the escape, the retaliation. But it never ends does it?
