Guest Blog: His Omega on Stage by Jessica E. Subject

Author Jessica E. Subject is back to share an excerpt from the exciting new book in her Shifter Towers series, His Omega on Stage. Welcome, Jessica!

BLURB:

Jun

For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

Ash

As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

On Stage

But with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they let each other slip away, believing what they have isn’t enough?

EXCERPT:

“Okay.” The man glanced at someone behind him before returning his attention to me. “We need you to take this position seriously. No pictures. No posting anything to social media. You’re being paid to work, and we need your full attention on the task you’re assigned. Got it?”

I nodded, not understanding why keeping fans orderly was such a big deal.

“Okay, sign this contract, and then we’ll get started.”

I skimmed over the stack of papers he’d handed me. They basically reiterated the no posting anything about my experience online or sharing information about my position with anyone outside of Adan Records. Which, I didn’t understand since there would be plenty of fans around during the event doing just that exact thing. But, whatever. It wasn’t as if I really wanted clout anyway. I signed the contract and handed it back.

“Follow me.” He put his glasses back down and headed out the back entrance, meeting with a few others in a private corridor only AR employees had the access code to.

I trailed behind, confused as to why they were being so secretive about everything. Shouldn’t I know what I was doing ahead of time? We reached the event room where I greeted the two women I’d helped last night, along with an older, tall, and very buff man, and then a kid. Well, he wasn’t exactly a kid, but I couldn’t tell his age because of the face mask he wore. One with silver jewels in the shape of a diamond.

Wait!

“Hey, you were at KMM last night looking for AI’s album.” He wasn’t looking for his sister, but spying to ensure we didn’t have the albums out early.

He slowly nodded, taking off his face mask. And then realization hit.

“Wait, you’re AI. But you’re also….” My mouth couldn’t keep up with my brain. “We went to the same high school.” It was the makeup and hairstyle in the promotional posters that had thrown me off, why he looked familiar, but I couldn’t place him.

His cheeks reddened as he stood up. “Yeah, I wasn’t sure you’d remember me.” He held out his hand. “Name’s Ash Reyes, but today I’m AI.”

Guest Post: Bunny Omega on the Run by Jessica Subject

Today I have author Jessica E. Subject here to share the first book of her Shifters Towers series, Bunny Omega on the Run. I’ve already added it to my TBR list, and I’m sure you will too. Jessica is also hosting a giveaway, so be sure to enter the Rafflecopter.

***

As a pop star, I never expected to find true love.

Not in a world where everything is temporary and often fake. But then he ran into me. Not once, but twice. My tiger instantly recognized him as my mate. Now, I just have to convince Kish that what we have is real.

The oldest of ten kids, I saw what my mother went through after my father left. After that, I started taking blockers so I would never go into heat, never have kids. Because love was for the weak. And I was doing just fine on my own.

Then I met TK. Literally smacked right into him. But no matter how much I wanted it to be true, I refused to believe that he could love a bunny shifter from the wrong part of town.

Bunny Omega on the Run is a super sweet with knotty heat MM mpreg shifter popstar romance. It is book 1 of the Shifter Towers series but can be read as a standalone.

EXCERPT:

I eyed the barrel of the 9mm pointed at my face. Clutching my hands behind me, I tried to hide the excessive shaking throughout my body. “It’s okay. You can pay me later. I’ll…I’ll just be going.” Anything to get away from there alive.

The lanky, bald man in the black suit clicked the safety off. “There won’t be another time.”

Without waiting for a shot to be fired, I spun around and bolted down the street. I had no time to shift. I simply ran. Over fences. Through yards. Down one alley after another. I didn’t stop. Couldn’t stop. My mom and siblings depended on me. I couldn’t help them if I was dead.

After what felt like forever, my thighs burned and chest ached. I had to stop. Or at least slow down. But I didn’t know if I was still being pursued. I dared a glance behind me. No one. Thank f**k! It was time to slow down. Shift and find a place to hide.

Smack!

I slammed into something hard. Someone hard. Liquid terror filled my veins. Somehow the guy in the suit had outsmarted me. I was dead. Gone. No chance to say goodbye to my family. My knees gave out, and I crumpled toward the ground. But strong arms caught me, lifted me back up. Did the man want to stare in my face when he killed me?

“Whoa, whoa. It’s okay, little omega. I won’t hurt you.” The man pulled me closer. Tight into his broad chest.

And that’s when I smelled the wild, rugged scent. A predator. Not the human who had been chasing me, but a tiger. I was in the arms of one of the most dangerous types of shifters in the world. But when I dared a glance up into his eyes, I only saw a concerned alpha. One whom I instantly recognized. TK. The pop star dominating all of the music charts. I’d had no idea he wasn’t human.

Filled with a new fear, I slowly backed away. Being anywhere near the star, I’d have more than one man with a gun after me. If he didn’t take me out, someone else would.

But TK didn’t let go so easily. He cupped my elbows, keeping me steady. “What were you running from?”

I didn’t answer. Behind TK, men in black suits—not cheap knockoffs like my pursuer had worn, but actual designer brands—eyed me, waiting for me to do something stupid.

Needing to prove I offered no harm, I shifted. In my shifted form, there was no way I could harm their charge.

I expected to fall to the ground and hop away. But TK didn’t let go of me. He held my scruff. “Oh my! You are the most gorgeous bunny I have ever seen. Just as beautiful as when you were in your human form.” He released his grip and stroked behind my shoulders. Then in between my ears. “You are just adorable with one ear up and one ear down.”

Guest Blog: TAYRYM (Galactic Defenders #4) by Jessica E. Subject

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you so much to Allie for having me back to talk about my new release!

TAYRYM is the story of a young man named Tayrym, as he makes the most important decisions of his life while trying to get them all to work together. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be possible for him through most of the storyline.

In the Galactic Defenders series, we first meet Tayrym in BRYCE. He is a young teen then, and becomes part of a very important ceremony on his home planet, Hemera. He is mentioned again in JAGER when Gwenodyn, his best friend, is talking to her sister. In both instances, Gwenodyn calls him Scrym. That is her nickname for him, and it is explained in TAYRYM.

In TAYRYM, he is the main character, and he must face his sexuality and how it is perceived by others. He must also decide which dreams of the future are worth pursuing, and which ones are worth giving up. He deals with surprising joy as well as some heartbreaking moments before he is able to find his happily ever after. I hope you enjoy the next story in my Galactic Defenders series!

*

Tayrym has dreamed of becoming a Galactic Defender since meeting the infamous Bryce when he was just a 

boy. Finally an adult and awaiting the day cycle he is set to leave for training, Tayrym learns his long-time crush shares his affections. Now, he’s unsure whether he wants to leave, which dream matters more.

With the threat of being sent away for his sexuality haunting him, Guri keeps his feelings for his former classmate to himself. Even with a new progressive ruler on Hemera, he still hides his attraction to the young man. But when he catches the other shadowing him, Guri decides to take a chance. The only problem is, the man of his desire is leaving the planet soon. Possibly forever.

With obstacle after obstacle in their path, will Tayrym and Guri ever have a chance to be happy together? Or are they destined to fulfill their dreams light years apart?

Excerpt from Tayrym:

Gwenodyn sat on the very front bench and leaned forward, examining all the players. “So, let me figure out which one you have the hots for.”

She might as well have thrown him onto the field with that statement. Tayrym wanted to run and hide. Thank goodness most of the players were at the other end.

She nudged him. “I can eliminate one already. The guy who’s the net minder at this end is one of our teachers. If it were him, you’d find ways to stay after school instead of coming here.”

True. He didn’t dislike the teachers. They were only a few years older. But, they didn’t leave him with ylafats in his stomach the way his crush did.

“And I doubt you’d go for the two shorter guys on the other team. They’re cute.” She bit her bottom lip. “Really cute. But, not your type.”

How did she know his type when he’d just told her he was attracted to guys? Though she was correct, so far.

“That leaves the best players on each team, the one with the strong cheekbones who looks like he’s dancing across the field or the younger guy on this side who is determined to win even down a player. He used to be in our class, sat behind you. I think it’s—”

The ball rocketed toward them from center field. Gwenodyn wasted no time moving in front of him to catch the ball.

“Fornax Raw! What was that for?” Sol, the net minder-teacher, called to the other player on his team.

Guri shrugged in response, his gaze on Tayrym. Or maybe Gwenodyn. Most likely her. Tayrym didn’t stand a chance.

The one Gwenodyn had said danced across the field ran over to them to collect the ball and bowed. “Sorry about that, Princess.” Once he threw the ball back onto the field, play resumed.

“Well, I wasn’t sure before, but now I’m positive you like the guy who kicked the ball right at your head. Though, after that, I’m not sure why.” She pinched his cheek. “He could have ruined your beautiful face.”

Favorite Lines from It Took a Zombie Apocalypse by Jessica E. Subject

With every book I write, there are some lines that stick with me even after I’ve written several others. Here are some of my favorite lines from It Took a Zombie Apocalypse (without too many spoilers)…

1. This is Missy responding to her father’s objection of her actions:

The religion card. What a surprise. “Jesus wouldn’t approve of half the shit that goes on in this town, especially how you treated that family next door.” She spun around and faced her father with her hands on her hips. “And you certainly haven’t been struck down yet.”

2. RJ is at the kissing booth and is trying to get more than just a peck on the cheek from Missy:

With a laugh, Missy playfully pushed on his chest. “You’re trouble, RJ. And you’re looking to get me into trouble with you.”

3. RJ just received a text message from his father telling him there is a zombie virus spreading through town:

He dropped his phone and stared at it on the floor, expecting it to explode. Zombies didn’t exist. He was in some kind of dream. Had to be. Missy actually had come home for the summer. And kissed him. Now, zombies.

4. And Missy’s reaction to Dr. Dhawan’s text:

“We should call him just to be sure. Or contact somebody. Maybe he meant something else. You know how stupid autocorrect can be.”

5. The first zombie sighting:

Neighbors walked down the middle of the street, their bodies twitching. And no one stopped to talk to one another. They just kept marching along to some unknown destination.

6. Stuck in a bunker, Missy is lost in her thoughts:

The undead were never part of her fantasies involving RJ. Neither was being holed up in an underground bunker where they would likely starve to death.

7. RJ does something that catches Missy by surprise. This is her reaction:

“I just don’t understand it. They were always so cruel to you, and yet even when they’re dead, you still try to do right by them.”

8. After leaving the safety of the bunker, they run into zombies. Missy screams, and RJ rushes to help her. This quote leads to one of my favorite parts in the story, but I don’t want to spoil anything.

“What is it?”

Missy turned to RJ, still in shock. The woman gnashed her false teeth at them, leaning closer until her head was inside.

9. Missy proves she’s not just a helpless victim:

She wrenched one of the bows from her shoulder, positioned an arrow on the string, and drew back. Aiming the arrow at the bushes, she tilted her head toward him. “Hurry up and get that stuff down there. I’ll cover you.”

10. And for the last line, the virus doesn’t just affect humans:

Just as he reached for the last box, snarling came from the area they’d heard the bushes rustle. A cat lunged out and raced toward them. Not just any cat, but a giant white house cat with its fur knotted with blood and half of its face missing.

Beyond Reach by Jessica E. Subject

SFR author Jessica E. Subject is back, and she’s sharing her favorite lines from  her new release, Beyond Reach. She’s also holding a contest, so be sure to click the Rafflecopter link at the bottom of this post. Welcome, Jessica!

***

jes-beyondreach-432x648Abandoned by her parents…

Born on Earth, Nixie was left on the planet Schedar when her parents returned home. Growing up on the pleasure planet, she follows in the footsteps of the woman who raised her, and learns the art of erotic massage. But Nixie yearns for a different life, one where she receives as much pleasure as she gives.

A runaway prince…

In an attempt to escape his arranged marriage, Prince Mekai flees to Schedar. For, he could never love his betrothed when he already loves another, a fantasy woman who invades his dreams every night. When the woman he seeks carnal pleasure from turns out to be the same one in his fantasies, he believes fate brought them together.

Fated lovers or forever enemies?

Just when Nixie and Mekai believe they have a chance at happiness with each other, they find out why their races are at war, and why they can never be together.

***

FAVORITE LINES FROM BEYOND REACH

1) “I know he’s going to send me to Tenebrae.”

“He’s not going to send you to the prison colony.” No one had been sent there from Carbae, ever. The planet was simply used as an idle threat to misbehaving children.

 

2) “Some like to taste the forbidden fruit. It’s a very common fantasy here.” He shooed her away. “Now go home and rest. He wants you for the entire night.”

 

3) Walking into the silky rear-end of an uidiss, she came to an abrupt halt. The creature had been walking at a steady pace and then stopped. She’d failed to notice in time. Wiping fluff off her face, she turned around and walked into another hard body. “I’m so sorry.”

 

4) “So, what was it like growing up on the pleasure planet?”

“I…I don’t know. Normal?”

 

5) In a short period of time, she’d run into two men who’d haunted her nightmares and one who stirred unfamiliar desires in her. If she continued training as a Suavita, would her life be filled with never-ending heartache? Perhaps that’s why the Suavitas took the ipsum, to avoid these emotions. How would she ever get to sleep now?

 

6) She wouldn’t be accepted in his kingdom. She was Terran. Right now, he didn’t care. “I don’t want anyone else. I want you.” And he’d give her as much pleasure as she gave him, more even.

 

7) “I know you don’t like to discuss the circumstances of how you came to be in Cyresse’s care.” He brushed a hand through his hair. “But we figured you would one day want to go to Earth to find your parents and demand answers. And with you now a level Two—”

“No!” She stood up. Her heart raced. “I could care less about why my good-for-nothing parents abandoned me on a foreign planet while they f***ed around. They can rot on Tenebrae for all I care.”

 

8) He breathed in her scent: bimon, a citrusy fruit found on Ubetron. The fragrance suited her better than ipsum floating around the planet. Bimon was a marking of his own heritage, giving him hope she would travel home with him. But how had she washed away the ipsum when the drug flowed through the water? And where had she found the bimon? Exporting the fruit had been banned long ago. Had she found the scent for him, worn it to indicate her feelings for him? He glanced over at her, filled with optimism. “Nixie, I want to take you home with me. I want you to be my princess.”

 

9) Nixie went immobile under everyone’s inspection. Who did they think she was? Did they somehow know her real parents? Would she be forced to face them? Her heart hammered in her chest, and she licked her dry lips.

“Impossible.” Thornton circled her and Mekai. “I thought you were dead. If I would have known….”

 

10) Nixie began to fade in front of him as though becoming invisible. Her father was beaming her off the ship. Mekai lunged for her, but fell through the empty space, landing on his chin. He waited for the pain. Instead, a cold rush filled him and his vision wavered. One second he saw his parents kneeling in front of him, and the next, a white room. Completely empty.

Interview with Dare from Made For Her by Jessica E. Subject

JES-Made-For-Her-432x648After terrorists murder the love of her life, Colonel Mikayla Jones trains squadron after squadron of the clones he brought to life, to take to the skies. When she discovers a young clone of her husband in her newest class, her world spins out of control. How can she command the look-a-like when she can’t help but yearn for him to fill an ache in her heart?

Dare was created to be the best. As the first Daniel clone to leave Onatria labs, he needs to prove he is more than just a DNA copy. To do that, he must rely on the wife of the man who donated his genes. But when she refuses to train him, Dare faces discharge and returning to the labs. Can he convince Colonel Jones to finish his training and find a way into her bed? Or will long kept secrets unhinge the entire clone project?

Please note: Made For Her was previously published with another publisher. It has been revised and expanded from the original version. This version also includes the short story, Replicated Consequences, which takes place in the same world.

Interview with Dare from Made For Her by Jessica E. Subject

Here is an interview with D32, or Dare, the hero from Made For Her. This takes place right after the woman supposed to train him refuses because he is made from the DNA of her late husband.

Jessica: Hello, Dare. Thank you for speaking with us today.

Dare: Thank you for having me. It’s nice to know that someone wants to hear my grievances.

Jessica: Now, from what I understand, you were supposed to be trained by Colonel Jones, but she refuses. Do you know why?

Dare: No. Though I wish I did. I think it’s because I look like Daniel. All I know is that she up and left the first time she saw me. And now that she’s back from Onatria labs where I was created, she refuses to train me. She has a new squadron of clones.

Jessica: How do you feel about this?

Dare: I’m pissed. I was supposed to be trained by the best flight instructor, and she’s it. Now, the squadron has a dickhead instructor, who feels the need to constantly remind us that we came from a petri dish.

Jessica: What are you going to do?

Dare: I don’t know. Keep trying to convince Madison and her that I need her to train me? I tried to talk to her when she returned from Onatria, but she wouldn’t listen. And she cried. Can you believe it? A commanding officer actually cried? After basic training, I didn’t think they could.

Jessica: How did that make you feel?

Dare: I wanted to hold her. Comfort her. Shit, I wanted to love her.

Jessica: And yet, you had to step away.

Dare: Yes. Clones are not allowed to have romantic relationships with anyone. I’m sure they’d prevent us from having sex, if they could. Plus, she’s a senior officer. She’d likely lose her job in the military.

Jessica: One more question. Do you have feelings for her?

Dare: Yes, how could I not? She’s a very attractive woman. Plus, I think the need to protect and love her is ingrained in my DNA. I can’t stop thinking about her.

Jessica: Sounds like a problem. I hope one day you two are able to work together. Thank you for joining us!

Excerpt from Made For Her (Adult Content):

Colonel Jones eyed each one of her new cadets, examining the neatness of their uniforms, while inspecting for signs of stress or over-anxiousness. She’d never seen the telltale muscle twitches or sweats in any previous clones, only in human-borns, but she had to look for them anyway.

The first generation of clones didn’t live long enough to become cadets. Their hearts had given out within a year after incubation. But the scientists at Onatria had plowed on, utilizing more of Daniel’s research, speeding up the aging process with hormones to create the perfect generation she saw before her.

She’d had female clones in previous squadrons, but the government filled the one in front of her with testosterone-driven masculinity. If she’d been younger, she’d have a hard time concentrating. But her days of crushes and fantasies were long over. She was devoted to serving her country and planet, and nothing else.

art grunge vintage texture backgroundThat didn’t stop her from going out on the town for a stress-relieving f**k from time to time. But these young men in front of her appeared so virile, sure to last longer than any of her previous sexual partners.

No. As junior officers, and more importantly, as clones, they were off limits.

Inspecting them gave her the opportunity to check out more than their fatigues and tics, but if they knew her thoughts, they’d walk all over her. She’d be done.

They were of varying nationalities, builds, and heights, all fit to serve the planet. None of the cadets revealed any indication he would put the lives of others in jeopardy. It would be an easy squadron, every one of them ready to fly in a matter of weeks.

She reached the last cadet and froze. Her stomach clenched. No, they couldn’t have!

She pivoted on her heel and rushed off the tarmac, leaving the squad without an instructor.

It’s an Alien Invasion!

Pixabay_robot-157803_1280Aliens are invading my blog! And having just relaunched my Alien Sex Ed series, I welcome them. Today, we’ve got some great snippets from a wonderful group of SFR writers, including Cynthia Sax, Mahlee Ashwynn, Pippa Jay, Susanna Eastman, Daisy Banks, Jessica E. Subject, Laurel Richards, Shiloh Saddler, Gail Koger, and Melisse Aires. Their works span several heat levels, and their out-of-this-world teasers will have you adding to that TBR list. Thank you to all the authors who made this post so much fun.

Releasing Rage_CompressedHe turned his head, locked his gaze with hers and she sucked in her breath. There were worlds of agony, of rage, in those bright blue eyes. This was no rational, logic-driven cyborg. This was a man, an animal, crazed by bloodlust and pain.

“They thought to pacify me with the use of a human female?” he thundered, his deep gravelly voice clawing across her skin, awakening parts in her she didn’t realize slept. “I’d kill you before I allowed you to touch me.”

Releasing Rage by Cynthia Sax

OnTarget_MahleeAshwynneHis face was twisting and distorting. The shoulders stretched the once-loose shirt, arms elongating and his body augmenting in extended ripples. Her panicked inhalation brought a crooked smile to the new face before her.

“Aldien, what in the nyxtril are you?”

“A Chameleord.” His breath came out short and hard in that familiar baritone voice.

On Target by Mahlee Ashwynne

PippaJay_KeirAt the center, T’rill alternated between surveying her somnolent entourage, her exuberant offspring, and admiring the play of sunlight on her skin, scaled in golden-green like the children’s. She contemplated removing the unnecessary weight of the twisted coronet of silver and pearls around her bare head, the only insignia of rank she wore—a token required by etiquette. J’dahzi, her most loyal, and yet most critical, courtier would scold her for doing so. Even though the thought amused her, she accepted the imagined reprimand and tolerated the burden. Lithe and muscular, she lay on a cloth of gold and green, a slight smile on her thin lips at each joyful squeal from her children. Dressed only in a short tunic of iridescent blue that left her slender arms and legs bare, T’rill, Queen of Metraxi, relaxed amongst the drowsy members of her court and her alert guardians, content and at peace, a day away from the rigors of duty and responsibility.

The most desirable and disobedient female I’ve seen on this planet or any other is my mate. Tell me, do you really want to wear male clothing, such as I found you in? Do you wish to take on the elite of the Jagan world alone?”

“It wasn’t male clothing. I arrived in a shadow suit,” she snapped, interrupting him again.

PippaJay_Keir's FallShe trod the silver and black corridors of her vessel alone and barefoot, hunger burning in her belly. Despite the dark color, the walls shone, lit by shimmering veins that seemed to flow along the undulating surfaces. She ran her fingers along one wall possessively, to feel the distant throb of the engines like the pulse of an eager lover. All that vibrant energy thrumming through her ship, into her fingertips, shivering over her skin. She resisted the urge to press herself into the walls and feel it strum through her whole body. Jakhani must find her another human with more stamina or she’d be forced to seek the cold and passionless company of her own kind for the meager solace that would provide.

stellaraffair_ebook_coverartThis was a precept? The guy looked like an ordinary man, not a monster or mutant. In fact, he was handsome and friendly looking. He couldn’t have been older than his early thirties. His hair was a fine light brown, and he had striking hazel eyes, which were now fixed on her. Under different circumstances, she might have attributed her fluttering pulse to something other than nerves. When she shook his hand, his fingers felt warm and soft and made her shiver.

Linatars-Pet_ShilohSaddlerMaster Dantfur’s eyes glowed golden, matching the color of his hair. He reached down and picked Andrew up, cradling him against his chest.

Andrew’s body prickled with fear and then a soothing wave of pleasure washed over him. Master Dantfur didn’t mean to hurt him. His strong arms surrounded him gently, careful to avoid the worst of his injuries.

Without thinking, Andrew nuzzled against the Linatar’s thick shoulder.

Master Dantfur let out a guttural hum. Was he purring?

VexingVoss_GailKogerThe warlord’s stunned gaze swept over my greasy black hair that hung in clumps around my pale, zit-covered face, and paused for a minute on the black raccoon-like circles around my eyes. He eyed my Hunchback of Notre Dame outfit in outright horror, and his nose wrinkled in disgust as my eau de dead skunk perfume hit him.

It was all I could do not to giggle. Hideous didn’t even begin to describe me. There wasn’t a man or warlord alive who would want to touch me.

It is an honor to finally meet you, Zoey.” Baring his awesome fangs in a scarily polite smile, he held out his hand diplomatically.

What a liar. Time to get the fun started. I scuttled round the desk and hid behind the general. “Please, don’t let him eat me.”

Vexing Voss by Gail Koger

alieninvasion1954_MelisseAiresHis face was human-like with a flared Roman nose, though his nostrils had notches on the side. High cheekbones, carved brown lips and a square jaw. He had aqua hair that was more like a pelt, thick and brushy. Eyebrows, of that same aqua shade. Inhuman eyes, almond shaped and faceted turquoise with no pupil, but set in human-like eye sockets with thick dark eyelashes.

His teeth—Oh my God, his teeth—Sharp and lots of them.

AlienSex101_coverartQuinn cupped her breasts with hungry palms and gave them one more squeeze before all his attention centered on the treasure between her legs. He cocked an eyebrow in surprise as he explored new territory. Unlike New Earthling women, she wasn’t curly and coarse down below. Instead, she had very short, perfectly straight hairs that formed a pelt over her mons. When he ran his fingers through this novel down, he discovered it was as fine and soft as cat’s fur and just as thick. He felt her shiver.

“A natural purple,” he mused, which made her chuckle.

Going Audio

BTSS audiobook tour banner

Thank you so much to Allie for inviting me back! Beneath the Starry Sky is my fourth audio book to be produced. The other three were sci-fi romance, but this one is a contemporary erotic romance that is part of the 1Night Stand line at Decadent Publishing. I chose this one because I wanted to see if it being contemporary would make a difference. Also, there are not many books where a character has alopecia areata, and probably even less in audio.

The process is fairly simple for me, as I’ve done it enough times as the audio book coordinator at Decadent Publishing. First, I put my book up for audition at ACX.com, filling out all the information and choosing a sample of script from my story that will really show the narrators skills. Then I waited until an audition came in. At this point, you can either pass or offer the narrator a contract to produce your audio book. Contracts are either royalty share or you pay per finished hour. ACX will tell you the approximate cost in the beginning if that’s the route you want to go. Once the contract is accepted, I sent the narrator the full manuscript and created an audio book cover, uploading them in ACX.

Then comes the exciting part, listening to your book in audio, first with the first fifteen minutes, and then the final production. It is important to review the audio files at both times to ensure accents and voices are the way you want, to make sure the narrator has followed the script, and to catch any background noise that would be distracting. A few mistakes are normal, and narrators are quick to fix them. When the audio files are acceptable to you, you get to approve the production. ACX must also approve it (which takes approximately two weeks) before your new audio book is available for sale at various retailers.

My narrator for Beneath the Starry Sky is Audrey Lusk, whom also narrated Another Night, Another Planet. I was happy when she auditioned for my latest and offered her a contract after listening to her audition. I have been very lucky with the narrators of my stories, all of them doing a fabulous job.

While I had never listened to an audio book a few years ago, I actually enjoy more stories on audio now than I do in print and ebook. They are not something I have to sit down to enjoy. I can listen to them while doing housework, driving, and more.

If you get a chance, I hope you enjoy Beneath the Starry Sky!

A 1Night Stand story

By Jessica E. Subject

Narrated by Audrey Lusk

Erotic Contemporary Romance

Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.

Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.
