The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games…In Space!

The Alien Bride Lottery Volume 1 tells the stories of three human women whose names are drawn in the Alien Bride Lottery to participate in the Bride Games as part of a treaty between the Khanavai warriors and Earth’s leaders—whether or not the women want to become an alien’s chosen mate! (Hint: they don’t!)

This book includes three novels, and you do not need to have read any of the other books in the series in order to enjoy this fantastic sci-fi romance.

The Alien Bride Lottery is fully written.

I have successfully published more than fifty books on Amazon and various retailers.

About The Alien Bride Lottery, Vol. 1

The Setting

Station 21 is the Khanavai-run space station that is home to The Bride Games, the Bride Treaty’s answer to “neutral territory.” There, the brides whose names are drawn in the Bride Lottery compete for the chance to win an alien mate–and participation is compulsory. 

The Characters

The Heroes: Khanavai Males

Cav Adredoni is a pilot in the Khanavai space military, but he has plans to go through training to join the military intelligence unit. He doesn’t have time for a new mate, but this might be his only opportunity!

Zont Lanov is a member of the Khanavai’s military intelligence, a spy for his government. But when Dr. Amelia Rivers goes on the run rather than join the Bride Games, Zont decides she’s the mate for him and goes to Earth to track her down.

Eldron Gendovi is a military commander who takes care of his people–including the woman he hopes will become her mate and her young son–no matter what it takes.

The Heroines: Human Women

Natalie Ferguson is a college student with a crush on a jazz musician classmate. When her name is drawn in the Alien Bride Lottery, she’s determined to get out of marrying a total stranger. She’s playing this game to lose.

Amelia Rivers is a talented surgeon who’s avoided the Bride Lottery so far–and when her name is drawn, she removes her tracker and translator and runs. Too bad for her, Zont Lanov is as determined to catch her as she is to avoid being caught.

Mia Jones is in hiding from her abusive ex. But her black-market tracker isn’t as anonymous as she was assured, so when she’s taken to Station 21, she focuses on bringing her young son to join her…while Commander Gendovi focuses all his attention on her.

Plus a whole slew of fun alien sidekicks, most of whom are tasked with keeping the brides in check, including Vos Klavoii, the beleaguered and manipulative Games Director.

Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery – a New #Kickstarter Perk in the Alien Bride Lottery Project! #hardcover #alienromance

Hi, y’all! We just reached the 9th stretch goal in The Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter Project!

I’ll be writing a second Alien Bride Lottery story entitled Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery to be sent to every backer digitally in January 2023. And I’ve added some gorgeous space-themed printable bookmarks as a bonus perk.

For the next stretch goal, I’ll send an audio annotation of the first book, Entered in the Alien Bride Lottery,  to all backers at the $5 and above level.

We’re down to the last ten days of the campaign! Anyone who pledges between now and August 14 will get these bonus books, so I’d love it if you continued getting the word out about The Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter project.

In case you missed it before:

I’m already planning out my next couple of projects—but I’d like to get your input on which one(s) I should set up as Kickstarters first! None of these will go live before the current Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter is done, of course, but I’ll need to start gathering up the extras that I’ll be giving away as bonuses during the Kickstarter run.

Right now, I’ve got six possible series ideas. Five of these are connected to new series: Alien Guardians, Alien War Brides, Abracadabra Apocalypse, Shadow Chronicles, or Borrowed Wings. OR I could use Kickstarter to finish out my Star Mate Interstellar Shifters series. You can see some of the covers from the projects below, and I’d love it if you took the quiz to let me know which one I should start with! 

Remember to Enter to Win

And as long as you’re sharing information about the campaign anyway, you should enter for the chance to win an exclusive Alien Romance Premium Swag Pack! (These are different from the goodies available via Kickstarter, just FYI.)

Support Publishing on Kickstarter!

While I continue to decide what to do next time, please do continue to support this campaign by sharing the info about the book and rewards with a friend!

Stretch Goal 8 & Surprise Bonus 9: Unlocked

This stretch goal includes a signed bookmark, and the surprise bonus is an exclusive digital sticker of a cute alien. This little guy just might make an appearance in one of the bonus stories I’m writing for this campaign!

Remember, the second brand-new Alien Bride Lottery story is the bonus for reaching the very next stretch goal. I’ve already started writing, so you can check out a short excerpt below. If you want to be sure to get “Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery,” continue to support this campaign by sharing the info about the book and rewards with a friend!

EXCERPT

Vos Klavoii, the director of the Bride Games, gave a predatory smile, his teeth shining white against his neon-green skin. “You should have told us you were engaged to a human man. Your fiancé seemed quite desperate to make sure you made it home safely.”

“My fiancé?” My voice rose to a squeak at the end of the word. “He told you we were going to be married? That’s not true. I never accepted his proposal. I never even took the ring he tried to give me. He’s the entire reason I’m here—I was running away from him.”

“That’s not what Mr. Romano told us.”

“Ask Bian! I told him the whole story.” At that moment, I wished more than anything that I had accepted the sexy, hot pink alien’s offer to accompany me to this meeting.

Klavoii shrugged carelessly, the movement just a little too practiced to be believable. “Your fiancé was quite convincing. Especially when he told me there was a reward for your safe return.”

I spun around, looking for an escape route from Klavoii’s office.

But even if I could get out of here, where could I escape to? I was on a space station. There were only two ways off Station 21: use a transporter or take a ship. But I didn’t have access to the transporter tubes. And I didn’t know how to fly one of the spaceships docked in the hangars.

A round, porthole-style window to one side of Klavoii’s desk caught my attention. Through it, I could see stars shining in the deep black of space.

Make that three ways.

I could leave the space station through one of the airlocks Bian had shown me on our tour.

It wasn’t the worst death I could imagine, stepping out into the cold nothingness.

At least it wouldn’t take long. I’d be dead in a matter of moments.

There was only one problem.

I wanted to live.

Cold-Blooded Lover ~ Excerpt #mafiaromance #contemporaryromance #MFRWBookHooks

Available on Amazon

She’s not the woman he meant to kidnap–but she may just be the woman he needs.

Massimiliano Beneventi

I told my father the cartel Colombians were not to be trusted. Now he’s dead, along with my eldest brother, and I’m left in charge of the family. I’ve declared vengeance on the killer who took out the only people I love. And I know exactly how I’ll exact my revenge: I’ll take his daughter and make her my own. After all, he owes me a family.

Valentina Velazquez

In the worst case of mistaken identity ever, Mafia Prince Max Beneventi kidnaps me instead of the Colombian Cartel Princess he’s after. He’s cold-blooded and brutal, and if he learns of his mistake, I’m sure he’ll kill me. Escape is my only hope for survival. But the longer I’m with him, the more I crave what only he can give me.

“Cold-Blooded Lover” is the first book in the King of Clubs series. It is a stand-alone Dark Mafia Enemies-to-Lovers Kidnapping Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers.

Please note: this book is a dark mafia romance that contains mature content, graphic violence and may contain triggers. If such materials offend you, please do not read.

Get your copy now.

EXCERPT

We reach the bottom of the stairs leading onto the tarmac, and there’s another black car waiting for us. But this one is not a sedan—it’s a sports car of some kind, sleek, shiny, and low to the ground.

Standing next to it is the single most gorgeous man I have ever seen in my entire life. He’s tall and muscular, but not as thick and burly as the goons he sent to kidnap me. Like Goon Number Two, he’s got dark hair and eyes, but no visible tattoos. 

Massimiliano Beneventi, I assume. Because this has to be the boss, given the way the people around me are acting.

I don’t care, though. I tilt up my chin and firm my jaw, determined not to let him see me in misery.

His dark eyes bore into me, and something hot flickers in their depths as he scans me from head to toe.

My stomach clenches, but this time it’s not from fear—it’s pure lust, and it spreads through my whole body. I can feel it radiating off me in waves, and when his mouth quirks up into a grin, I know he sees it, too.

“Hello, Valentina. I’m glad you made it here safely,” he says, but I can hear something under his voice—some kind of sexual heat that burns through me as he gazes into my eyes.

I clench my teeth together, determined not to speak to this monster who has taken me from my perfectly normal life and brought me into something terrifying.

Of Fae and Hate by Quirah Casey – Book Blitz

Hate is a strong word, but at the Nadouraz Academy it’s deadly.

Of Fae & Hate
Quirah Casey
(Of Fae & Hate, #1)
Publication date: July 23rd 2022
Genres: Adult, Reverse Harem, Urban Fantasy

Hate is a strong word, but at the Nadouraz Academy it’s deadly.

I never wanted to attend Nadouraz Academy.
The school for fae is full of spoiled, bratty, powerful royals. I’m none of those things.
Most importantly, no one even knows if I’m even fae.

The first week of school I find myself in a rivalry with more fae than I can keep track of, but it becomes the least of my worries when I end up cursed. What’s worse is that the curse binds me to three fae I hate and one who just may be a demon from the darkest pits of hell: Soskia, Alik, Fox, and Brynsyn.

Now a promise to give the pretentious academy a try, an unbreakable contract, and a wicked curse may seal my death.

Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery & A Collection of Science Fiction by Women #kickstarter #alienromance #MFRWAuthor #MFRWHooks

Welcome to this week’s MFRW Book Hooks Blog Hop! Today, I’m featuring Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery. I’m gearing up to offer this book as a bonus in the Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter. You can help unlock the bonus (and make sure to get your copy of Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery!) by supporting the Kickstarter at any level. Check out the book below!

I never should have trusted an alien—not with my life, and definitely not with my heart.

When I started dating Francisco, I never dreamed his family was connected to the mob. But I learned better when I tried to break up with him. He was absolutely determined to make sure I couldn’t get away from him.

What’s a girl to do when she discovers her obsessive ex is a Mafia hitman?

I ran as far away as I could get. All the way to Station 21, where I entered the Alien Bride Lottery. Because marrying a total stranger from a different planet has to be better than dying, right?

I never dreamed the director of the Alien Bride Games might betray me to the monsters I was trying to escape. 

I don’t think I can ever trust anyone again—not even the hot alien I was beginning to fall for. The one who promises he can save me.

But everywhere I look, all I can see is betrayal…

Fans of Grace Goodwin, Evangeline Anderson, and Ruby Dixon will love this steamy new series featuring gorgeous, bright alien heroes and the sassy human women they choose as mates!

Every book in the Khanavai Warrior Bride Games series is a standalone romance. Join these brides as they find a whole new world of happily ever afters.

Available only via the Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter!
