BLURB:
Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the
genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.
As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA,
Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human “genetic
cows,” and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to
control the Teluosians on Earth.
When Eve’s mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam’s
true love or his next “genetic cow?”
Excerpt:
I laughed. “So you are
eavesdropping on my conversation for my sake.”
“Yup.”
I drank my tea then and looked at
her over the rim of my cup. When she had finished humming Why Do Fools Fall in
Love I put my mug down and looked at her. “Ask me already!”
My momma daintily lowered her mug
down and smoothed her robe over her lap. “So, is he hot?”
I shook my head and stood up,
gathering my laptop to go to my room. “One, I am so not having the
conversation if a guy is hot or not with you because you’ll have me picking
names for our children. Two, even if he is hot it doesn’t matter because he is
a total weirdo.”
I left the kitchen and heard my
momma yell after me.
“It sounds like the beginning
of a great romance.”
