The Alien Mate Index (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: This is Part 1 of Abducted, book one in my new Sci-fi romance series, The Alien Mate Index.
I'm putting it out as a novella to give you a taste of what is to come.
There are order links for the entire book at the end of this novella.

Zoe McKinley has a boring life, an awful job, and a boss that throws staplers at her head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by Aliens?

When Zoe is dragged aboard an extraterrestrial ship, she thinks she's been chosen as a concubine by the huge red-skinned male with horns and a devilish grin because he has a hard-on for Earth girls. But Sarden has worse plans for her--he wants to trade her to an alien petting zoo!

Can Zoe convince him she's worth saving? And can Sarden keep from falling for the little Earth girl with the sassy attitude and the lush, plus-sized curves?
You'll have to read Abducted, book one in the Alien Mate Index series to find out.

Warriors of the Twelve Peoples—Alien males who need to bond with females.

From the pen of Evangeline Anderson, the writer who brought you Brides of the Kindred, comes a new race of Alien warriors…twelve races, to be exact.

Everyone thinks that live just evolved on Earth—
Wrong.
Our planet, and twelve others, all capable of supporting Terran life, was seeded by the Ancient Ones.
Then Earth was locked away, kept safe in the cocoon of our ozone layer. But now there’s a gaping hole in our security blanket and guess who’s coming to dinner?
That’s right—the Alien warriors of the Twelve Peoples—also descended from the Ancient Ones, are looking for mates and Earth girls are their first choice.

The Vorn are feared throughout the galaxy. Savage, horned warriors, these males can be surprisingly gentle to the females they choose to bond with.
Denarins come in pairs—two muscular males who share a psychic bond... and feel the need to share one woman as well.
And the Majorans worship their females as goddesses, the very color of their skin changing with their bonded mate’s mood.
Braxians are savage with black-on-white eyes that can see every spectrum of light. They will defend their females to the last drop of blood in their huge, blue bodies.

And there are more…so many more Alien warriors to pick from.
Which type of male would you choose?
Too bad you won’t have a choice, because thanks to the Alien Mate Index, an agency that abducts Earth brides for alien males, you could be snatched at any time and turned into a massive warrior’s mate or concubine.
So the real question is—who will choose you?

Unfinished Liaisons (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Disappointed by politics and coverups, Father Esteban Hidalgo leaves the church, regardless of his conservative family’s tradition. The real trigger for his decision is losing his best friend, Mauricio, who died of AIDS, and whose last letter asked Esteban to look out for his widower, Javier Lozano.

Without Mauricio's love, Javier collapses, and the only thing which keeps him going on is to fulfill Mauricio's last wish. Javier has to personally return twenty years of letters to Mauricio's pen pal and best friend, Esteban.

The meeting between Javier and Esteban changes their lives, stirring forbidden desires, but between them is a lethal virus, Esteban family’ prejudice, a twenty plus age gap, and the memories of the man—both once loved.

This book is part of the Unfinished Liaisons Series, but every book in the series stand alone, and it’s independent than the others. What is the Unfinished Liaisons Series about?

Everybody had a secret, a kiss, a dream, or a memory that would never be told, a name that could have been part of our lives, but never was. Maybe an affair that should have never happened. Secrets that nobody would guess, with a person that no one would imagine for us. Deep in our hearts, we all keep forbidden wishes, fade illusions, that would never be, but what if we were offered a second chance?

Only for Him
Grayson Ford and Emma Kinglsey--close since they were kids, opposites in every way. He's the stuff high school crushes are made of, Mister Popular, and captain of every team. She's artsy, cute, and not in his league, though fully aware of Summerland's "I Dream of Dating Grayson Ford" support group.

I can't say no. The girl's had my heart since before I knew it went missing.

He hides a life of hell. His father hates him, his mother's gone. Emma is his only savior, yet she doesn't know her power over him. She's the only girl he wants, the only one he could ever tell--though he won't.

I'm stronger, bigger, more of a man than he'll ever be, but because I ruined his life, I've taken his crap, his attacks, the vulgar nature of his existence.

Until she discovers Gray's embarrassment, his humiliation. Emma fights for him and for a chance. Theirs is a Cinderella story that she believes impossible. But as the layers peel back, it's just a guy who needs a girl in order to keep breathing.

My mind is already doodling Mrs. Grayson Ford in imaginary notebooks. He has no clue where my head is at... But, given that I didn't see what just happened coming, maybe I have no clue where his head is at either.

Only for Him. Only series, Volume One.
