Pia Manning, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.
Star Brides: Dept of Corrections by Pia Manning
Genre Erotic Romance, SciFi, Action/Adventure
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): NR
Inmate 1640 would do anything to escape serving her long and well-deserved prison sentence. Anything. Including leaving Earth with Zuntx warrior Kadir, to serve as mate to him and the three other men of his unit.
Janine Longo was sentenced to twenty years for beating a man who tried to cheat her. Sick of her trouble making ways, prison authorities gave Janine an opportunity to attend a Bridal Fair, find an alien husband and leave Earth. When the pool of available mates dwindles and the guards call her name, Janine hastily agrees to return to Zuntx with Kadir. Besides, if she doesn’t like Zuntx or the men, she can always wander away and blend in with the crowd. Right?
Scarred and disfigured Kadir, is growing desperate. This is his third time as a Fair participant, and he doesn’t have the money to fund another attempt. So, when the woman in the orange jumpsuit agrees to accompany him, he accepts her offer.
Shortly after landing on Zuntx, Janine meets the other men in Kadir’s unit: Tero, Kobak and Bakur. Together, they disembark and head for home. Problem is, the thriving bustling Zuntx that Kadir left behind is not the same place he returns to. Riot torn, the planet’s homeless men now wander aimlessly seeking food, shelter and women.
This is not at all what Janine had in mind.
Can Janine find redemption on Zuntx? Is this her second chance? Can she learn to love her men? All four? And what about Tero’s little ‘problem?’ Hmmm…
Will life on Zuntx improve? Kadir has a plan…
Why did you write this book?
Kadir’s story kept nagging at me! I met him in Star Brides: Procured, when he was in a tough spot. His views of women and their capabilities needed to evolve. Janine’s not much of a rule follower. Her attitude has gotten her into trouble many times. She needs a second chance at redemption. So, I thought they’d be good for each other, and their journey a tale worth telling.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love reading erotic romances, scifi/fantasy, mystery, suspense, and well, you get the idea!
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’d have to say Meg Corbyn from Anne Bishop’s The Others series. Bishop manages to weave the paranormal into the normal in such a way as to make it an accepted part of her character’s everyday life.
What are you working on at the moment?
Star Brides 4 looms on my horizon, as well as a paranormal/horror novel.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Star Brides 4 will make an appearance in the next few months. I hope readers have enjoyed the Star Brides universe as much as I have enjoyed writing about its characters and their trials and tribulations finding true love. The as yet untitled para/horror novel will also find a release date.
