Jessica E Subject
Unconvinced of her fiancé’s demise, Molly combs the galaxy to search for him. As her supplies run low, she is forced to turn around and set a course for Earth, alone. But, a Moloxian Starcruiser halts her retreat, and the single passenger transports onto her ship without permission. Taser in hand to defend herself, she is startled as the form remolds into her fiancé. Has Diego found her or is her tired mind playing tricks?
Young Space Pilot Set to Launch into Space in Search of New Life
Thank you so much, Liz, for having me on your blog! Hello everyone!
I’ve brought along Diego de Sella from Alien Lover, who is about to leave for his first official mission with the Space Service. Diego, can you tell us the purpose of your mission.
Diego [with a curious grin]: I’m not exactly sure how the title Alien Lover relates to my mission. I must be missing something. But I will be flying further into space than we have ever gone before, searching for new life.
How long is your mission scheduled to last?
Diego: I will be gone for approximately one Earth year, possibly longer, depending on the success of the mission.
How will you determine if you mission is a success?
Diego: If I find alien life, of course.
Are you worried you may come across hostile alien life?
Diego [his expression serious]: That is always a risk, but we have protocol in place for that.
Why are you being sent into space alone and not with a team?
Diego: The Space Service believes we will be seen as less hostile this way.
What will you miss the most while you are gone?
Diego [his grin returns as he taps his fingers against the chair]: My fiancé, Molly. We will be married upon my return.
You look anxious to leave, so I will let you go. I wish you much success on your mission, and a speedy return.
Diego nods: Thank you. [He leaves the room.]Thank you again for having us, Liz!
“Incoming message,” the computer chimed. “Source located one nautical mile away, starboard.”
She brushed her hands across the console and brought the video feed from the ship’s right hand side onscreen. The image quivered, and she groaned when it finally became clear. A Moloxian starcruiser.
Shit! I just want to go home. During her search, the crews of the few Moloxian scavenger ships she’d come across had been willing to let her pass if she traded with them. But she had nothing left, only enough food and fuel to reach Earth, and even then she’d be hungry during the last leg of her journey.
“Play.” She decided to listen to their demands, give them what they wanted, and move on. She had no other choice. Starvation was a better alternative than providing the sexual services they’d always hinted at. The Moloxians, though humanoid, had scale-covered bodies. So incompatible with her own. She wouldn’t survive unscathed and didn’t sleep around anyway.
“Prepare to be boarded.” The deep computerized voice shook her. No slur, and therefore not Moloxian. Who the hell was he?
She didn’t have time to contemplate. Her blood boiling, she gripped the arms of her chair. The creature, whatever species he happened to be, planned to come onto her ship. No one boarded without her permission, which she would not grant. At the sound of her transporter, like the pitter-patter of rain on Earth, she leaped from her seat and spun around. She grasped her bolt stunner and pointed it at the figure materializing into solid form before her eyes.
With a huge outline, the male boarding her ship would only bring her trouble. If his strength matched his size, she had one option: to kill him. She took in his bare, broad chest, sculpted abs, and muscled arms. His tanned skin shone with brilliance, as if the sun rested behind him. She gazed up at his dark hair and warm brown eyes. He studied her with an intense stare while his soft lips curved into a smile.
She gasped. “Diego?”
