"comically steamy and sensual story that will enchant and inspire"

Deana Jones has had a bad day. She's just been fired from her job, and sat in "something wet" and decidedly un- kosher on the train. By the time she makes it to the parking lot and discovers that her car is blocked behind two others that have just collided and are hopelessly fender-locked, she has just about had it with this world.

Stranded until a tow truck can arrive, Deana kills some time in a nearby antique shop where she unearths an ancient and tarnished necklace that, at first, appears to be a worthless piece of junk but ultimately turns out to be the key that will unlock a whole new future and new worlds to her. These new worlds are soon revealed when Deana arrives home from her horrendous commute and finds a strange and outlandishly clad man -- Lorgin ta'al Krue, Knight of the Charl -- sitting on her living room sofa.

To say the least, Lorgin is a strange character who sees the neighborhood mall as an adventure, coffee as a to-kill- and-die-for elixir, and telekinetically induced airplane turbulence as "fun". Nonetheless, he is a stubborn and undeniably raw male weird bird that Deana will have to deal with whether she wants to or not for Lorgin ta'al Krue has appointed himself her personal guardian and made it his duty to protect her, even if this means offing Deana's popcorn-popping microwave with his trusty light saber, to making her his wife and whisking her thousands of galaxies away to fulfill the prophecy of the Shimalee -- Diana's newly-purchased necklace.

Deana and Lorgin make one comically steamy and sensual pair that enchant and inspire. And for lovers of high romantic fantasy and adventure, their story is a must-read.

Fired from her job and exhausted from her miserable commute, the last thing Deana Jones needs when she gets home is to find an alien in her living room. But how else to explain the man who claims he is from beyond the stars? He says his name is Lorgin and that she is part of his celestial destiny. Deana thinks his reasoning is ridiculous, and she knows he's making an error of cosmic proportions. But his touch is electric, and Deana starts to wonder if maybe their passion isn't written in the stars?.
