Synopsis:
Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in
the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new
boss.

Rasha, Captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around,
she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.

~~~Guest Post~~~
Today on the blog, we've got A.M here to give us the lowdown on the Sonians and Drazlonians. These two alien races make up the worlds in the Loving Dangerously series!

The Sonian/Drazlonians live on a world that has two suns and only one ocean. Their world ended up being hot, dry and very bright, definitely not something that humans are used to. The people on Sonis don’t have a problem with heat. The females wear light and colorful long gowns while the males are usually bare-chested with training pants on. Bare-chest worked good for me, especially since they are all ripped warriors. Natives to this world aren’t much different from humans by much. Since this is sci-fi I could have went way out and I do with some of the alien descriptions, but not for my main characters. I like the idea of falling in love with an alien, but there still has to be an attraction there. I didn’t want the readers to be thinking about the differences between my characters and not the story line.

They are extremely tall, ranging from six and a half feet tall for the females to upwards of eight feet for the males. Because of the sun exposure the natives are golden in appearance. I didn’t hold back on their eye color. Taio and his siblings have lavender colored eyes. Rasha, our hero in Dangerously Hers has amber colored eyes. A cultural difference is the participation of the males in an enlightenment ceremony. This is a ceremony that all young males go through as a passage to being a warrior. Once they have completed this, they receive an enlightenment tattoo that covers part of their body. Rasha has long black hair that he wears pulled off his face so that we can see his enlightenment tattoo. The tip of a light-blue-and-indigo wing covers one of his cheeks and extends down his neck and chest. Where, displayed proudly, was a vivid bird of prey in flight with outstretched talons. I think it’s really hot when the heroines get to explore their hero’s tattoos up close and personal for the first time. It makes for a great scene.


The males are warriors who believe that females need a protector. They take great pride in providing this which is where a lot of the misunderstanding with human women comes into play. My women have been taking care of their selves for a very long time, so to give up control to a huge alien, no matter how hunky they are, causes a lot of misunderstanding and power struggles.

Rasha raised it out of her grasp. “You should never try to take a warrior’s weapon.”

She pulled her hand back in record speed. “I wasn’t trying to take it. I wanted to feel it.”

He lowered his weapon in front of her.

She flicked her hand out nonchalantly. “Never mind. You're acting like it’s been kissed by Jesus or something.”

“Who?”

“Forget about it. It’s precious, I get it.”

“There’s no reason to get upset. If you no longer want to touch this weapon, I have another…weapon…you can touch.”

She shifted on her feet, feeling the bumbling idiot trying to rise to the surface. “No, thank you.” Yes, please.

He ran his hands down his muscular thighs. “Another time then?”

Jess had the fleeting thought of him running his hands on her. Oh jeez, how good would those hands feel on me.

“Hmm?”

“I shall leave you alone. I’m sure you have plenty of work to do.”

“Alone? again?” As she spoke, she immediately wanted to take the words back.

He cocked his head. “I could stay if you wish. Eva said you would need ‘space’ in the beginning.”

She snorted. The sound wasn’t pretty at all. She might as well have oinked like a pig while she was at it. “I don’t wish you to stay.”

“Really? Are you sure? We could do something about that.”

Was his voice always this deep?

She picked at her hair nervously. “About what?”

He inhaled sharply. “I can smell you.” Then he let his gaze drop to crotch.
