Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Katherine Deauxville has created an outrageously funny situation for this otherworldly romance. There has never been a love story quite like the one between earthling Maryellen Caswell and alien Sub-commander Ur Targon. It's not the hero's claims to be from another planet that makes this story unique (we've had heroes from outer space before) it's that Targon has set up housekeeping inside Maryellen, and she's not even sure that kicking the intruder out is the best solution -- since Targon is devoting all his otherworldly sensual skills to winning her willing cooperation. You see, Targon is perfectly situated for his official mission...and the passion he shares with his "hostess" makes the personal situation pretty nearly perfect as well. Before long these star-crossed lovers are embroiled in a romantically madcap mix-up including the New York Mets, pickles, and alien endearments that Maryellen loves to hear even if she can't pronounce them.

    Beam me down, Scottie!!!

    I am beginning to believe Katherine Deauxville is one of the most misunderstood romance writers around. She wrote some of the most memorable historicals with The Crystal Heart ( my favourite), Blood Red Roses and the funny, brilliant Enraptured. She is very well researched, creates such original characters....well, I fear so is SO ORIGINAL people are just not getting with the program. Her writing is so witty, her tongue firmly planted in cheek...she delivers you works so unlike any others and I am THANKFUL for it!! I have read so many thousands of books in my lifetime, and a LOT of them just fade into nothing, blur into the stereotypical...NOT with Any of Maggie Davis/ Katherine Deauxville's works. Each and everyone will live on in your mind!! I have noticed that Brits tend to appreciate Maggie more than Yanks!...hum...say no more...say no more...;-) But I have to admit, Out Of The Blue is one that is hard to write about!!! I start laughing, just thinking about it! Maryellen Caswell awakens on morn, to gasp!!! find that her body has been taken over by an alien. She is not even lucky enough to be taken over by a female alien, she gets stuck with Sub-commander Ur Targon. Since he not only has the ability to control her body, he also controls her voice, poor Maryellen finds herself a mess. Well, New York has seen their share of fullmoonitis and the loonies it brings out, so a lot of weirdness can be taken without a raised eyebrow, but Targon is something even the most hardened New Yorker cannot ignore. He is not really thrilled with his new assignment, and is sort of P.O.ed about the mix-up that lands him in a female body, thus he is looking for find a replacement as soon as possible. Maryellen is more than willing to help him, naturally wishing to see him on his way, if he would only keep his....er....her mouth shut and stop drawing attention!!! Her sisters thinks she is losing her marbles and sends her to a shrink, but he is confirmed UFOer and is thrilled with the concept of 'catching one'. Enters Wolf Madder ( hum sounds suspiciously like Fox Mulder X Filer)...then they figure out Targon can materialise outside of her body with some help from orange juice...(well the breakfast drink ever be viewed again and not chuckled at???). I have seen several people refer to this book as unrealistic...HUN??? Maggie is taking wide swipes and anything and everything....IT's NOT MEANT TO BE REALISTIC...earth to reader....Did you watch Men in Black and say, nice try, but unrealistic??? Targon over and out!!

    Maryellen Caswell, independent commercial artist, thrives on pushing the deadline. One morning she awakens and has the symptoms of a nervous breakdown. The voice inside her head is not hers and calms to be an alien. Convinced by her sister to seek professional help, her visit to the doctor is an experience of yet another kind. Ur Targon, Sub-commander of Intelligence Security, arrives on Styrex Three due to sabotage efforts of his enemies in the transportation system. Frustrated with his side stop onto the Styrex Three Plane and to his credit, he tries to make the most of it. With continual chaos tracking his movement, the escapades are hilarious. Katherine Deauxville does it again. Known for her accurate historical romance novels, she makes the transition to comedy romance with humorous finesse. Each character helps the other get into and out of multiple escapades. Join her and her characters on this merry adventure.
