Everyone deserves a Happily-Ever-After

Celeste and the Alien Bartender


Zanar has made himself a home on Earth, where he owns Stardust Bar, popular with both aliens and humans. There's only one thing missing from Zanar 's life. Despite his best efforts to impress the human females he meets, he's still without a mate. At the age of twenty-six, it isn't dire for him to pair off and start a family just yet, but he's lonely and ready to settle down. The last thing he expects is for Celeste to come into his life and turn it upside down.

Celeste is back on Earth, after having been abducted by an alien race five years ago. She's spent those years as a slave on the planet Vaaden, where she had a precious daughter with her owner, Pynder. But when Pynder dies suddenly, his parents swoop in and snatch Sophie from Celeste's arms before banishing her from their world. Celeste will do anything to get her daughter back, but falling in love with a bartender -- or anyone else -- was never part of the plan.

Praise for Celeste and the Alien Bartender

"What starts as a friendship deepens quite quickly into a hot romance. This book is a great read... It has a great plot and goes from sweet to RED HOT."

-- 4 Stars from Nikki, Sensuous Reviews

"I love Zanar's patience with Celeste. He was playing a long game and willing to do whatever was necessary to see Celeste smile. I loved hat their courtship was slow and steady. Both Celeste and Zanar were developing feelings that grew from a budding friendship. Zanar was willing to listen to and respect Celeste’s fears. Ms. Smith understood that even under the worst circumstances love could blossom."
