Ed’s latest book, Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, is now available
It may be alive, but I, Effing Feline, yawn. Tell me, what difference does this novel make to me, a cat? Sure, sex and violence are supposed to sell, and the book has sex:
- female-controlled kisses
- an offer of a blow job
- young people driven sexy by pheromones in the air
- middle-aged folks getting it on (or off, depending on your point of view)
- a young mom finding true love at last
- a duchess finding true love at last
. . . and violence:
- a gang of murderous rebels
- a 14-year-old fashion model saving the old folks with a smuggled gun
- an army of cleaning robots who sweep bad guys off their feet
- a robot programmed to kill
But so what? There’s no cat food or catnip in the whole hissing book!
Audra, the primary heroine of Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, has a lot of difficulty trusting men. It’s no surprise, then, that the first kiss between her and Tal, the hero, is a long time coming — and it’s an unusual kiss. He puts his arms behind him and tell her to kiss him.
“So kiss me.”
“You won’t move?”
“No,” he said like a bad ventriloquist, scarcely moving his lips.
She let out a single laugh then sobered and said, “Stay put, okay?” As she edged closer, she wondered if she should she put her arms around him, or maybe on his shoulders.
His gaze never left her as she neared, and he swallowed forcibly, the knot in his throat lifting and falling. His breathing quickened and an exhale parted his lips. Her hand trembled as she braced it on the counter beside him, leaving an inch of space.
She’d never done this before, never been in control with a kiss’s success totally dependent on her; control-freak Tom certainly wouldn’t have let her.
Did guys feel this nervous about first kisses?
Alien Contact for Runaway Moms
She’s running from an abusive lover…but what is she running to?
When her abusive lover tries to take custody of her baby, Audra flees where even he can’t follow: the aliens’ forbidden cities underneath Kwadra Island. But can the safety she wants for her daughter survive a search party, violent alien criminals—and the love of an emotionally damaged Kwadran?
Tal Pelletier’s life has degenerated into drinking, fighting, and physical labor, but he used to be a brilliant technician. When Audra asks his help sneaking into Kwadra’s abandoned cities, it represents a second chance, because she and her baby remind him of the wife and child he lost. But can he protect them from the killers—and, more importantly, the demons inside him?
