Review: Distant Desire by Cambria Hebert

Title:  Distant Desire  

Series:  Standalone

Author:  Cambria Hebert

Genre:  Paranormal Erotic Romance

Blurb:   

An erotic tale from beyond the stars.

Sophie Perez has never believed the stuff she reads online about possible life in space. Aliens are for the movies, for the weirdoes, and they most definitely are not real.

One night on the way home from a late shift at work, her car breaks down. Stranded on the side of a country road, with a dead cell phone, doesn’t seem like that big of a deal.

Until strange neon lights appear in the sky. She thinks it is her imagination.

When an inexplicable circular ship appears overhead, she can’t deny what’s clearly right in front of her. Especially when moments later, she’s taken onto the ship, a human hostage among those who are most definitely not human.

About to become a human guinea pig, possibly worse, the last thing she ever expects is to like the things these otherworldly beings subject her to. In fact, it is unlike anything she’s ever experienced. Will Sophie find her way back to her planet, or will she beg to stay where her pleasure is literally out of this world?

 

Thoughts:

Bright lights, alien abductions, clothes being ripped off, experimentation…sounds like an episode from the “X-Files,” but Cambria Hebert spins it with her special author powers and suddenly it’s a paranormal erotic romance with an HEA.  Definitely not something Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would have written up in their report. Sophie is a college student waitressing at a local bar in a no-name town when late one night on her way home, her Jeep sputters to a stop, her cell phone quits and bright lights appear from nowhere. (Key in the “X-Files” soundtrack.)  Next she finds herself on an examination table and surprisingly aroused and intrigued by an alien in a silver robe with the hood hiding what appears to be some well-chiseled features. Tarek, sent from his home planet of Sapia, has been studying life on Earth.  His special mission…to successfully impregnate a healthy female and bring the child back to repopulate his planet.  The Sapien females, while beautiful, aren’t producing anymore children.  When times were good, they mated only to procreate then the offspring were raised separately from its parents.  All very cold and sterile, just like the Sapien’s lack of emotions. Until now, all attempts have failed.  Aliens “0,” Humans “X,” or is it a “+” sign or two lines? Anyway, great, fast-paced story from a favorite author of mine! If you’re looking for some extraterrestrial heat, look no further than Cambria Hebert’s Distant Desires.

 

Excerpt:

I opened my eyes.

I was back on my street, my Jeep just feet away. I was dressed in my jeans and shirt. I looked up at the sky, expecting to see something hovering overhead.

The only thing I saw were stars.

No ship. No aliens. Nothing.

I stood up. My legs felt wobbly at first as I moved forward. What the hell just happened to me? Maybe I was hallucinating. Maybe someone slipped something in my soda at the bar.

I walked toward the Jeep, the seam of my jeans rubbing against my crotch. I paused. Where the hell were my underwear? And why did I feel so wet and stretched down there?

On impulse, I looked beneath my T-shirt. I wasn’t wearing my bra, either.

It was real.

I remembered. He didn’t take away the memory.

What’s more… He said he’d be back.
