Why everyone in the universe deserves a happily ever after…
Guest Post by Jessica E. Subject
In my 1Night Stand stories published by Decadent Publishing, I write about heroes and heroines who one normally does not see in romance novels. I write about real people (and some not-so-real) who deserve love just as much as anyone else, people who are scarred, diseased, different, those who have been told no one can love them, and now believe it. I give them their happily ever afters, because I believe there is someone out there for everyone.
In Beneath the Starry Sky, Tamara was left at the altar because her fiancé could not handle dealing with her Alopecia Areata. And Josh is a former television star with his own scars that force him behind the camera.
Celestial Seduction is a little different in that the hero, Frey, is an alien. This leaves him with all kinds of insecurities, because while he can make himself look human, he wants a woman to accept him unconditionally. Carrie believes she will always be alone after her husband left her after she learned she would never be able to bear children.
Flavia, living on a space station, yearns to return to Earth, and find love in Unknown Futures. Jewel is convinced no one on Earth could love her because of the scars left on her face after her prom date splashed acid on her face when he learned she was a lesbian. When Flavia meets Jewel on the space station, she’s determined to show Jewel just how beautiful she is.
Danyka, taller and broader than most men, has a hard time finding a date. In Satin Sheets in Space, she winds up at an 18th century costume ball where she is supposed to meet her Prince Charming. Galan travels through space, ready to settle down with an Earth woman, but he needs to find someone to accept both him, and his brother.
In my upcoming 1Night Stand release, Sudden Breakaway, Paige has given up on love after signing her life away to the Space Service, and believes she can’t offer any more than one night of passion. Jared’s life changes when he leaves the Marine Corps to become the sole guardian to his niece and nephew, who leave him with no time for a social life.
And in Another Night, Another Planet, my work-in-progress, Ava comes from a low class family, unable to afford to further her education. Stuck in dead-end jobs, she catches a break, finding a housekeeping position on the Mother Traveler. She is left with little time to date on Earth, and any guests on the ship who show an interest are quick to toss her out as soon as she puts out. Nate is a space cowboy, travelling the universe without a planet to call home. No one wanted him as a baby, and with his mixed ancestry, no species will claim him as their own.
In all of these stories, the characters are wary of giving their hearts to anyone, some already burned by love, and others vulnerable because they are different. But I believe they deserve their happily ever afters, no matter what struggles they must experience to get there.
Sudden Breakaway Blurb
Dressed in her black designer suit, Paige Brown recruits men and women for the Space Service. After the end of her marriage, and several failed recruiting missions, she yearns to find a way out of her lifelong contract to live a normal life. To find love again.
Jared Barnes’s life had been flipped upside down by two little kids. When his former Commander’s wife shows up to give him a reprieve, he jumps at the chance for a break, and to visit his former squad. But it is not his buddies he meets in the private suite at the hockey game, instead a woman who has been the star of all of his recent fantasies.
