Book Summary

When he's marooned on a strange planet, cosmonaut Vernon Attwater thinks his only problem is one of possibly ending up as reptile poo -- especially when the reptile chasing him looks like something out of an old science fiction movie. Little does he know that the alien who saves his life is about to complicate matters in ways he never imagined… ways that make him sigh, pant, groan and gasp with pleasure. Even so, surely he can control his own yearnings, especially when he's never previously felt such desires, being that the alien may look androgynous but is decidedly male in every way that matters.

Cresszna seems to have other ideas and is rather persistent. It doesn't help that Vern knows he's sending out mixed messages. He keeps saying no even as his body is saying yes, and feels rather shocked by the overwhelming sense of loss when it seems Cresszna is prepared to accept his rejection.

There's no way home and Cresszna is the only intelligent humanoid life-form he's run into. Would life, and sex, with the alien truly be so bad, especially when Vern's experiencing sensations he didn't know he was capable of feeling. Trouble is, there appears to be a price to pay if he wants to be Cresszna's mate -- one that's even more amazing than the strange things he's so far encountered on the planet.

Meet the Author

Sharon Maria Bidwell

When asked to describe her writing, Sharon can find only one word to summarise: diverse. She's written both fact and fiction yet cannot imagine the day when she will call herself anything other than a storyteller. Her articles, poetry, short stories, and longer works have appeared in a variety of print and online publications both in the UK and in the USA. She's received fan mail all the way from South Africa.

Sometimes writing in more than one country requires her to exclaim there is nothing wrong with her spelling. This fact wouldn't surprise her English teacher who once wrote in her school report, "Sharon could do well with her writing if she only stopped coming up with such fanciful tales." He may have criticised her overactive imagination, but he never complained about her spelling. Being English, Sharon simply prefers having a colourful life rather than a colorful one.

Her work often crosses genres; thus, crime, horror, fantasy, action, adventure, fairy tales, gothic, erotica, romance, and slipstream are themes she uses in any combination. She gave her website the title of "Aonia" for in Greek myth that is where the muses lived, and with numerous small publishing credits, praise for her novels, and several books now available, the muses have definitely found a home at Aonia. Should her English teacher (or his ghost) choose to drop by, he would be most welcome, as are her readers.
