Andi Selene was flat broke and working as an escort when the offer came. A client
wanted to see her. And not just for an hour or two, but for an entire week!
But Andi quickly discovered the client was more than she had bargained for. The client
was not a man, but a gorgeous young woman named Chara. Now Andi found herself caught
in an ever-rising spiral of passion. Chara was intelligent, beautiful, and amazingly
kind. But she had her own secrets. When they finally succumbed to their mutual attraction,
would their friendship survive the revelation that Chara was not human, but a visitor
from the stars, on a mission which would change Andi's life forever?
~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~
Chara sank back in her seat as Andi drove them back to the hotel, her eyes
closed. Andi sneaked furtive glances at her, once again awestruck by her beauty.
Her tan skin was dark in the dim light of the dashboard. Her bountiful chest rose
and fell in time to her slow breaths. Andi longed to take her into her arms and never
I'm half in love with her already, she thought, and the thought nearly made
her cry. When this week was over, she would go back to her dreary life. The money
she would receive would perhaps allow her to claw her way out the hole she was in,
but she was separated from Chara by a chasm so vast it was almost beyond imagining.
She would live in Des Moines, or Omaha, or Kansas City. Meanwhile, the glamorous
person sitting next to her, blessed by wealth, wit, and beauty, would doubtless travel
around the world, seeing places and people Andi could only dream of. Andi could not
imagine what chance had brought Chara within her orbit, but she knew instinctively
that once she left, she would never see her again.
She parked the car in the hotel lot, and gently shook Chara's shoulder. “Wake
up, sleepy-head,” she said softly. “We're back.”
Chara stretched and smiled at her. “Already?” she asked.
“Yes, already,” Andi smiled back.
“Your people are really quite clever,” Chara said as they entered the hotel.
“Who else would think of warmers in the seats so your backside does not get cold?”
Andi laughed. “Well, if there is a way to make the driving experience more
enjoyable, Americans will find a way to do it. I think we invented cup-holders, too.”
In just a few moments they were back inside the suite. Andi yawned and blinked
tiredly, the stress of the day catching up to her.
“I think I'm going to take a shower, then go to bed,” she said. “Otherwise
I'm going to fall right over. I had a late night last night at my other job. Unless
you need me for something...” she let herself trail off suggestively, hoping Chara
would catch the invitation in her voice.
