"...this fusion of soft science fiction and romance is well written, briskly paced, and utterly readable..Powered by an identifiable and endearing heroine, this novel is just the beginning of what could be a long and fascinating series."

Synopsis

Tamara Carrington always felt different. One event in high school left her wondering if maybe she really was a freak, although she'd managed to leave that experience in the past-buried deep within her psyche. 
With the arrival of exchange students from the planet of Azelle to her college, Tamara's long-buried memories threaten to erupt. As Tamara's emotions build and her friendship with the Azellians grows, so does the knowledge of secrets within her own family.

With the deterioration of her mother's health, Tamara doesn't know where to turn for answers or solace. What has her family been hiding? Why does she feel inexplicably drawn to the Azellians? What will happen if she unleashes her long-suppressed passion? Will she survive or even recognize herself afterwards?

Wanting answers, yet being afraid of what she might find, Tamara wonders if it would be better to remain asleep.
"His lips were as soft as they had promised to be, gentle and undemanding. It wasn't her first kiss, but it had been so long ago and so wrapped up in the horror of her boyfriend's death that Tamara had forgotten what it felt like. She responded shyly. The kiss deepened and changed tone. His breath came hard. He shifted, joining her on the couch. He pressed against her, the robes offering no protection from the feel of his body against hers. She hesitated a moment, overwhelmed with desire and terror."

About Sara L. Daigle

See more books from this Author
Sara has been creating stories since she first forayed into the world of writing at the age of eight. As an avid reader growing up in a small town without much access to a library, and before the birth of the Internet, Sara devoured her mother's extensive stack of science fiction and romance novels to keep her literary thirst quenched. Soon afterwards, she began writing her own stories and entertaining her friends by composing plays for them to act out. A passionate interest in astronomy, anthropology, and linguistics, coupled with this early background in science fiction and romance, led her to merge the two fields and create a series of interlinked stories built around a fictional planet's culture and its interaction with ours. Sara currently lives in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and three very loving, but energetic dogs.
