Sensual Romance Book 1
BY L. WISE
Imagine yourself stranded.
With no way of getting home.
You’ve no communication, no shelter, no food.
Now imagine this place is another planet.
Then you realise you aren’t alone after all . . .
At the exit, Jenny slipped in a puddle of animal blood and fell, sprawling, to the ground. She began to scramble out of the doorway on her stomach, but her ankles were seized, and she was whipped backwards at speed.
She was abruptly released, but the momentum caused her to roll until she hit the opposite wall. Jenny lowered her hands, which had instinctively risen to shield her head against the impact, and peered fearfully at her attacker.
His feet, bare and soiled, were planted wide apart, and his naked chest was rising and falling rapidly. He threw something, and Jenny covered her head again. The crushed bottle caught her on the back of the hand. She stifled a startled cry and peered through her fingers at the alien, her stomach rolling and twisting like waves.
He reeled off a string of words, and she flinched at the tone. He bent towards her, and she tried to hide within the wall, but she was lifted by the front of her suit and hung, like a ragdoll, from his hands. Her chin began to tremble.
She was deflated; all fight had fled her body.
‘I’m sorry.’ Tears fell in an endless rush. ‘I thought you’d gone. I thought you were on Taurus. Th-that’s w-why I drank it.’
She was shaken roughly, her head rocking on her shoulders, and then dropped. The instant she hit the floor she curled into the foetal position, with her arms covering her head.
Her senses were acute to sound, and her brain nagged her to flee, but she remained motionless. The old, old trick: play dead. It was miraculous how prehistoric instincts had quickly reasserted their position in her life.
Finally, the bare feet walked away. But Jenny remained in a curled ball, the dismembered animal her neighbour, and wondered if the quality of her life would be worth the struggle to survive.
Louise Wise is a British author from the Midlands in England. Her debut novel is the acclaimed sci-fi romance titled EDEN, which was followed by its sequel HUNTED in 2013.
Forthcoming JELVIA: NOT HUMAN series is themed on the above Eden and Hunted books. HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO book 1 is Wise’s latest release from that series. SURVIVING HER DOMINATE book 2 will be ready for publication in 2019.

Wide Awake Asleep (time travel, romance)
Wise enjoys writing comedy and finds a place for it in ALL her books. She has written numerous short stories for women’s magazines such as Take a Break and Woman’s Own.
