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.)

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.

Betrayed by the Alien Bride Lottery: Available only via the Alien Bride Lottery Kickstarter IF we hit the next stretch goal!

New July Bonus Perks

Also, for anyone who backs the campaign by the end of the day on July 31, I have added three new ebook bonus perks! Anyone who has already backed the campaign will receive these, as well.

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.

Dating an Alien: The Pros and Cons

There are plenty of reasons to love alien romance novels. They’re often incredibly imaginative and can take us to places we’ve never been before. But what if you found yourself actually dating an alien? Would it be all sunshine and roses? Here are a few possible pros and cons to help you decide.

On the plus side, aliens are often portrayed as being very understanding and patient creatures. They know what it’s like to be different, so they would probably be very accepting of any quirks or idiosyncrasies you might have.

Then again, there are many pros and cons to dating an alien, just as there are with dating anyone else.

One pro is that they come from a different perspective and might be able to help you see things in a new light. Also, they have the potential to be very exciting and adventurous, since everything about them is new to you. On the downside, aliens might not always understand human customs or emotions, which can lead to misunderstandings.

One pro of dating an alien is that they might be able to help you expand your perspective.

If you’re considering dating an alien, there are a few things you should consider. On the plus side, they come from a different perspective and might be able to help you see things in a new light. They might also be more open-minded than humans when it comes to relationships.

However, there are some downsides to dating an alien. They may not be able to understand human emotions and behavior, which can lead to misunderstandings. There’s also the possibility that they have completely different values and beliefs than you do, which could make for a very challenging relationship.

Another pro is that aliens have the potential to be very exciting.

When you date an alien, you’re dating someone who is completely new to you. There’s no need to worry about your partner getting bored with you because everything about you is exciting and adventurous–and the reverse is true, too! They might not be from your home planet, but that just means that you have brand-new, interesting stories and experiences to share with each other. So if you’re looking for something new and exciting in a relationship, dating an alien may be the perfect option for you.

A downside of dating an alien is that the potential for misunderstandings.

A downside of dating an alien is that they might not always understand human customs or emotions, which can lead to misunderstandings. For example, if you are feeling sad and your alien partner tries to cheer you up by doing a handstand, it might not be the reaction you were hoping for. Additionally, aliens may not have the same understanding of social cues as humans do, so they might unintentionally say or do something that offends you–or other humans around you. However, if you are patient and willing to teach your partner about human customs and emotions, dating an alien could be a fun and rewarding experience.

If you can’t find your own spicy hot alien to date, check out some of these books to get your alien groove on!

You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.

And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me…


I woke from cryostasis a prisoner. My crime? I have no idea. 
I was stuck with a hundred other women, all headed to who knows where. Captive in a dank, dirty cargo hold. 
Then, out of the darkness, came Solair. 
A handsome alien. Golden skinned. Horned. The dashing captain of a pirate ship. They rescued us–he gave my people food, shelter, and promised us safety. In exchange?
He took me for himself. 
But the people who captured us, haven’t given up. They want us back. They’re powerful and will do whatever it takes to find us. The only thing stopping them?
Solair.

He wants me. And what he takes…
He keeps.


A middle aged science teacher who feels unloved and unwanted meets
Three huge alien warriors desperate to find their Queen
When Terra agrees to go on a quest with V’rone, Tem, and Rive
Will she end up as…the Queen of their Colony?


If they can stop arguing over every decision, they might prevail.

He’s the leader of his clan, accustomed to being followed without question.

She’s the top salesperson in her company, used to negotiating every transaction.

Welcome to the Galactic Gladiator Games, where the toughest aliens in the galaxy fight for the most prestigious titles. But these games come with a twist: every alien warrior is mentally and emotionally bound to a potential Earth mate, forced to work with her to overcome their enemies–and sometimes each other.

Underground Magic by N. R. Larry and Margo Bond Collins

Excerpt:

I had never been so afraid of approaching footsteps in my entire life. The fire in front of me cast a black shadow against the gray wall. Aubrey stopped, sighed, and then said, “We have to send in the Anchor.”

An echo of the scream I wanted to release in response to her words rattled around inside my skull. Screaming would do us no good. I pressed my hands against my lips as if in prayer, a ritual that stayed with me from the before times. Something else that would do me no good. Not down here in the Underground.
