survival? Create a weekly schedule.
Accidentally transported to an alien spaceship, Valerie Thornhill
inadvertently volunteers to be a virtual sex slave for five men.
A shortage of females and her blatant curiosity aboard the alien vessel
conspire and set fate in motion. The fact that the five are sexy and
attractive is helpful when she learns the term of service is three years.
Forbidden to show favoritism within her unusual household for the duration
of the long trip, Valerie still can’t help falling in love with the most
intriguing one of her male harem. The fact that she is apprehensive about
his demeanor and overall size only heightens her desire for him.
When the aliens discover Valerie’s indiscretion, the ultimate price for her
desire may jeopardize the return trip to Earth for all of them.

"Words fascinate me. I especially love hearing new word combinations
because they often inspire story ideas. The spark for this book came after I
heard the words male harem. I was well into writing the story before the
word Menagerie traipsed across my conscious, becoming the perfect title.
Hope you enjoy it."~ Lara ~

REVIEWS for Menagerie
A+ "Menagerie by Lara
Santiago is unlike any book I have ever read. Erotic and original, this sci-fi
story grabs you from the first page and keeps you thoroughly involved until the
last word. Ms. Santiago has come up with an alien story unlike any other and her
imaginative style, world building and strong heroines, who always have a touch
of humor, never cease to entertain.
Ms. Santiago weaves a story so steamy you’ll need to
sit on a block of ice to keep from overheating! Each of these men is more alpha
and sexy than the next. The heroine is strong, funny and would make a great best
friend. I really loved this book and it has earned a spot on my keeper shelf.
Trust me you definitely need to pick up a copy of Menagerie. But remember
I did warn you that it is so sizzling you'll feel like you're sitting in a
—Lynda, Simply Romance Reviews
5 Flags: "WOW! Fantastic! Titillating, sexy,
and OMG it’s unfair that one woman can be catered to by so many men. Well, Lara,
without being told, you’ve added another one to my keeper shelf. I could not put
it down until I finished it. The lack of sleep was worth it! High marks, hon!
Can’t wait for the next one."
5 Cherries: "Oh My Goodness! I LOVED this
book! I’ve come to expect quite a bit from Siren Publishing and their authors
since we started reviewing their books… and I have to say that Lara Santiago
doesn’t disappoint. I was sucked in from the beginning and was loathe to put
this book down… even to feed myself!
When we first meet Valerie she is lamenting the fact
that her life is lacking… in her eyes anyway, and apparently in her mother’s as
well. We’ve all been in Valerie’s shoes as she tries to lose those few extra
pounds she thinks are holding her back, and her wry grumbling as she trudges up
the hill in her gray sweatsuit endeared her further to me.
Each man is handsome and sexy in his own way, but only
one calls to Valerie’s heart more than the others, and only one really had me
going as well. I can’t tell you which one, if you haven’t already guessed, as it
was a surprise to me and that surprise is half the fun of this story.
I loved the cast of characters, especially the
secondary characters! Meeting so many new people, including a group of aliens
with rather unoriginal names, which was quite a bit of their charm let me tell
you, was quite a bit of fun. I have to say that I adored Daisy and am hoping to
see her full story soon… or next… please! I would love to see more of this
incredible world and the people who inhabit it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end,
and was intrigued by how Lara Santiago brought about the happy ending that made
me smile, and will no doubt do the same for you. Menagerie is a gripping,
unique offering of the Sci-fi/Fantasy variety that will leave you hoping for
more from this amazing voice in erotic romance."
"Good heavens above, Menagerie made
me squirm! From beginning to end I wanted to BE Valerie. Each male in her harem
was deserving of love and I found myself individually loving every one of them.
Add in the plot twist at the end and my heart smiled for a story well told.
Menagerie is unlike any alien book I have ever read and the heat is out of
this world. I will read Menagerie over and over."
—Talia, Joyfully Reviewed (from
"You’ll need a fan for this one! A new author for my keeper shelf! I’m not much
of a fantasy/paranormal fan, but the premise and the book excerpt for this one
intrigued me. I’m glad for that, as I’ve found a delightful author that can
weave a very believable fantasy. I loved the dynamics of the five men and how
Valerie shared different aspects of herself with each one, except for when it
came to Dominick with whom she shared all of herself. Valerie is a fun strong
willed heroine, often naďve in a very charming way. Dominick is a man tortured
by his own desires and his struggle to control his very dominant nature. Though
he’s protective and possessive, he’s very much taken in by Valerie’s generosity
with all the men in the group. Not once does Valerie lose sight of why the men
need her, and it’s their well-being that keeps her grounded. There’s a lovely
twist to the ending, one that I was very pleased to read. Though there are
explicit sex scenes and on a one-on-one basis multiple partners, this is very
much a love story, one I couldn’t put down. Ms. Santiago has a refreshing voice
and I’m eager to read more from her, hopefully more of this intriguing world.
This one’s for the keeper shelf!"

Stars: "Menagerie is a delightfully
entertaining, emotional, and romantic tale about a sexual arrangement amongst an
alien ship. Valerie is a naďve, compassionate, charming, and comical character
that I instantly fell in love with from the very beginning of the story.
The confident and group leader Hauser, the polite and
creative Johnny, the shy and straight laced Frasier, the aggressive yet smooth
bad boy Mark, and the passionate and silent giant Dominick have wormed their way
into Valerie’s heart. The bond that has transpired between them is quite
passionate, seductive and romantic, which includes oral stimulation. An erotic
dream sequence might be uncomfortable for some readers yet this situation
provides an emotional ambience within the main characters. I found the
meticulous details and the realism that the author provided in the story very
realistic, which definitely helps make every scene quite enjoyable. The various
secondary characters are very entertaining and help strengthen Valerie and her
mate’s relationship. Ms. Santiago has created a fabulous and exciting adventure.
Where can I sign up for this kind of sexy alien encounter?"

Hearts: "What would you do if you were
sucked up into a vortex and found yourself on an alien ship and your purpose
while there is to service five hunks?
Valerie is a funny, kind-hearted woman. She's insecure
about her looks, she's not skinny, and has very little experience with men.
She's a wonderful character. I loved her. The love scenes are well written,
sexy, and smokin' hot. Lucky Valerie. Each of the five heroes have individual
personalities, looks, builds, and temperaments. They complement each other. They
are compassionate, gorgeous, and help alleviate Valerie's insecurities which I
found to be a nice touch. Great dialogue and some hilarious one-liners add to
this entertaining story. But what delighted me the most was the rather sneaky
twist towards the end that I was definitely not expecting. I recommend
Menagerie as a fun, entertaining, and sexy book to read."
—Abi, The Romance Studio
"I really did end up liking this a lot more than I expected. There was quite a
bit more emotional depth here than I thought there'd be, along with quite a bit
of humor and a fairly well drawn story arc. There are certain rules Valerie has
to follow besides having relations with each guy twice a month. She has to cook
them breakfast and isn't allowed to work, which annoys the crap out of her (me?
I could probably deal with being loved by five men and just chillin' at home all
day, but whatever). She meets a friend, Daisy, and the two of them stir up
mischief together. They keep getting called before the "council", which are
three aliens who monitor what goes on inside the starship. As time goes on,
Valerie finds herself falling for one of her guys, which breaks the cardinal
rule in Alien world—don't
give one more attention than another. She can't seem to help herself, though.
Then, as the guilt from keeping the secret starts to weigh on her, she begins
having horribly frightening dreams that effect her relationship with all five of
them. In the end it turned out be a fast paced tale and one I
enjoyed. I'd recommend it."
The Book Binge
"This book has multiple partners, some bondage, and
explicit sex. It is very well written and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was
rooting for Valerie all the way. Valerie's behavior on the alien ship reminds us
of the little troublemaker we all have inside. By the end of this story I was
wishing for that happy ending that I felt they deserved. This book was so
descriptive, it felt like a movie playing in my head."
—Breia Brickey, ParaNormalRomance
"Girls, get ready for Menagerie.
Valerie proves that it is possible to have your cake and eat it too! The men are
as different as night and day so, there is no chance of her becoming bored. I
loved the concept of the alien abduction. Putting Valerie on an alien spacecraft
removes her and the reader from what's deemed to be too taboo, which is a
necessary move in order to fully enjoy the story and appreciate it for what it
is. Once I got over my initial discomfort of her having sex with all five men
(never more than one at the same time mind you), I loved Menagerie. The
characters are well thought out and conveyed. The spaceship and its alien
inhabitants are all so engrossing that I could visualize everything. Believe it
or not, sex is not the highlight of Menagerie, it is more about Valerie
seeing herself for the gem she is despite her perceived faults and her
activities with men who are so different, but who all appreciate her for who she
I really believe Menagerie will be enjoyed by
readers who like a little sci-fi spice as well as others who like a genuine love
story. The ending of Menagerie really caught me off guard because I
didn't see it coming. But, I loved every minute of it and smiled long after I
read the last page. "

“…is why the men here need sex.” An unrecognized
voice echoed in Valerie’s sluggish brain.
Join the club, she
thought, rousing further. She opened her eyes and realized she
was sitting in a very uncomfortable chair.
“Therefore, after the gauntlet arena selection,
you will be required to have sex with each one of the men in
your selected group at least once every two months so that they
won’t die a painful death,” the blue alien standing before her
said in a stern tone.
Valerie was no longer face down in the dirt. She
was no longer outdoors. Lifting her head slowly, she quickly
realized she was also no longer alone. Half slumped in a hard
metal chair, she straightened and stretched the kinks out of her
back. After several satisfying pops, she resisted the urge to
Where am I?
Looking first to her right, she noticed fifteen
or so other shell-shocked-looking women in various stages of
dress. To her left was much the same view. There was one poor
soul wearing only a bra and panties. But another was in a full
fledged business suit complete with patterned pantyhose and
stilettos. The others in the room looked like they’d been pulled
from backstage at a play between acts.
Valerie looked down at her boring gray sweats. At
least she wasn’t in her underwear like half the women in the
The blue alien looked like a body builder that
had been dipped in cerulean paint. He cleared his throat and all
the women in the room sent their gaze forward. No one in the
The grimace forming on his face wasn’t attractive
and bordered on hostile. He stared as if he was waiting for
something from them. Valerie had no idea what it could be and
resisted the urge to yawn, certain it wasn’t the response he
searched for. She wished she hadn’t missed the first part of
what he’d said.
“Don’t any of you have questions?” he asked. “I
usually get a lot of questions.”
Valerie raised her hand. The blue alien man’s
expression softened. He pointed at her and gestured that she
She sighed deeply and stood. Over a sea of heads
seated in the several rows of chairs in front of her, Valerie
fixed her gaze on the strange blue man waiting with eyebrows
lifted for her question.
“What was your name again?”
He stiffened. “You may call me, Blue. What is
your question? Or was that it?”
Valerie paused at his name. His skin was blue and
his name was Blue? Whatever.
“We haven’t got all day,” he remarked and glanced
at his clipboard thing.
“You want me to do what with a group of strange
He sent a piercing stare through her, crossed his
substantial arms over his chest and the hostile expression
returned. “Haven’t you been listening?”
Blue, the alien with the Smurf-blue skin, looked
like he’d fallen into a vat of sapphire dye and soaked for
awhile. Maybe that’s why he was so grumpy. His hair was dark
brown along with his thick eyebrows and his eyes were also
brown. He wore snug pants and no shirt.
“Well, sure, to part of it, but…” she trailed off
and sat back down.
Was she dreaming? If
so, wouldn’t she be the one in her underwear being called to
task in the classroom?
“Have any of you been listening?” he
railed and sent another stern gaze drilling to several of the
No one else said a word. Perhaps they were all as
confused as she was.
Valerie decided that this was the single most
vivid dream she’d ever had, and the strangest. She felt like
she’d come into the middle of a movie. Only she didn’t remember
how she got here or where she’d been before being seated at the
back of the class. Someone else must have put her here, because
if she’d seated herself, she would have been in the front row.
Definitely a dream.
She sent her gaze forward again. Blue’s
expression hadn’t changed from annoyance. A couple of phrases
brushed her memory. Gauntlet arena with groups of men and
have sex with each of them. If she’d remembered
Yeah. Like that would really happen. She barely
knew what to do with one man let alone a group of them. The rest
of the women seated around her seemed even less enthusiastic.
“Don’t any of you have anything to say?”
No one responded.
The few women standing along the edges of the
room, possibly due to the inadequate seating, seemed equally
shocked into speechlessness by Blue’s words. Perhaps it was a
Blue sighed deeply, as if he were dealing with
children who were too ignorant to comprehend his words. “Don’t
you understand? There are never enough women to go around when
you are brought here, so the men have to share. They suffer if
they have to go without sex for that long in this environment.
Do you want them to suffer?” He looked around the room, making
eye contact with several of the attendees. “Well, do you?”
Like sheep afraid to stand up for themselves,
they all began to shake their heads. Valerie didn’t respond. She
didn’t particularly care about the suffering of strange horny
men. It was a stupid dream, and therefore no participation was
“Now, we haven’t much time, as we are running
behind schedule. I don’t have time to repeat myself. Therefore,
we’ll take you through orientation quickly and then bring you
right to the beginner’s gauntlet arena. It’s a little quieter
than the advanced one. Hopefully you can learn what you need to
know along the way.”
A woman to Valerie’s right, who’d obviously been
in the middle of putting make-up on and dressed completely in
beige, raised her hand. “How many men are in a group?”
Blue nodded and the frown disappeared as if he’d
finally heard a worthy question. “It varies. Never more than
seven and no less than four. The average is five.”
Valerie looked down at her gray jogging suit,
wishing she’d managed to conjure up a nicer outfit for this
dream. If she were about to meet men, a sweat suit wasn’t
exactly the most flattering clothing she could have worn.
Blue was talking again, but Valerie missed it due
to her perusal of the unusual fashion statements being made
around her. What did her clothing say about her? Was she an
exercise geek? She sincerely hoped not.
The nebulous feeling in her brain wouldn’t allow
her to remember specifics of her life. She guessed it wasn’t
really important in the dream world.
“…come along now to the next station and all the
important facts will be explained in greater detail. You can
make your decision then. Stay together. Don’t wander off.”
Blue headed towards the only door in the room and
the other women followed, one after the other, until the room
Valerie ended up at the end of the line with one
of the business-suited ladies directly ahead of her. She
followed along down a narrow white hallway, looking all around
for a clue as to where she might be. The walls seemed to be
constructed of white panels with lights hidden inside. Didn’t
you usually dream about places that were familiar? Apparently
not, because this place was totally alien.
Up ahead on the right, a panel had dislodged as
if the wall had been hastily constructed. Through the gap,
Valerie could see another hallway and she slowed to peek
through. She lost sight of the business suit she was following
to wrestle the panel open further.
After a little effort she was through the narrow
space and into a much wider hallway. The color of the lights in
this hall were varying hues of aqua. She liked this hallway much
better. The color was more soothing.
Valerie chose to walk to the left because the
hall was longer in that direction, and seemed to go farther.
After walking for several minutes, she heard voices. She rounded
a corner and plowed into someone.
A tall, male someone.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t see you,” said a totally
luscious, deep male voice over her head. There was another man
standing next to him, but Valerie couldn’t tear herself away to
get a look. The man she’d run into felt too good.
“I don’t mind.” Valerie grabbed his arms and laid
her forehead on his chest. He smelled delicious. Taking a deep
breath, she tilted her head up to check out his face. Wide
shoulders led to a square jaw and he had a cleft in his chin,
too. Focusing in on his vivid, saltwater-blue eyes last of all,
she noted that he was completely gorgeous.
Valerie had read somewhere that dreams were
thought to be the brain’s way of cataloging information gathered
during each day of the dreamer’s life. She must have seen this
hunk at the park or something and filed him away for later
dreaming. He’d been worth the wait. Now in this dream, she could
do anything that she wanted to with him.
Plus, she had the benefit of a better
personality. In dreams she was always funnier, smarter and
A bemused smile greeted her as she stared. He
gripped her shoulders, squeezing gently. “Are you on your way to
the gauntlet arena?”
Valerie scrunched her eyebrows. Hadn’t that blue
alien guy said something about an arena and a gauntlet?
“Is that where you’re going?” she asked.
He nodded. “That’s where I’m headed.”
“Me too. Maybe we could walk together.” She was
prepared to say anything to keep this guy interested.
He exchanged amused glances with the man standing
next to him and asked, “Are you spoken for yet?”
“I don’t think so. How would I know for sure?”
“Have you selected any man from the gauntlet
“No.” Valerie frowned. “What’s that gauntlet
arena thing again?” Better to get her answers from this hunk
than a hostile blue alien.
He narrowed his eyes, then explained. “The
gauntlet arena is a large room filled with men seeking a
partner. When you enter and walk down the gauntlet aisle, the
interested men will step forward and try to get your attention.”
He looked her up and down. “I expect you’ll garner a lot of
“Why?” His interested appraisal brought a grin to
her lips. In her non-dream life she seldom rated a single look
of interest from the men she came into contact with on a
day-to-day basis. Attractive men like the man before her never
saw her at all.
He smiled in return. “Well, first of all, you’re
a blonde. It’s rare in this place, for some unexplained reason.
And second of all,” his eyes ran down her body with definite
interest once again, “you aren’t frighteningly skinny like the
majority of the women here.”
Valerie frowned and looked down at her crappy
jogging suit. And while she’d always dreamed of being
frighteningly skinny, she’d also always considered herself
pleasingly plump. “Does that mean you think I’m fat?”
His eyes widened with panic. “No. Of course not.
I meant absolutely no insult. It’s just that the slightly
curvier women are, well, more kindhearted in this place.” He
leaned in and whispered confidentially, “The bony, skinny ones
are mean. It’s not their fault. It has something to do with the
alien vortex process when they’re brought aboard.”
Alien vortex process?
Valerie drilled a look into his beautiful eyes, trying to
understand. “How are the skinny chicks mean to you? What do they
He shrugged. “It’s their temperament, I guess.
They go out of their way to aggravate all around them and
especially men, but only after they’ve selected a group. By then
it’s too late. The new men here always go for the skinny, mean
ones and subsequently they’re stuck. Those women with a little
meat on their bones are always selected first by the seasoned
Valerie nodded, but didn’t quite believe what he
said. Her slightly hazy memory, which seemed to fade with each
passing moment, recalled an incident very recently where a man
she was with had suggested that she should go on a diet.
Even now the feeling of shame washed down her
insides in a burning, hurtful rush. She shook her head to
dissolve the remembered sting and lifted her eyes to his face.
This was her dream, after all. She would control it and
she most assuredly didn’t want to think about diets.
This man’s seductive gaze drilled through to her
soul. His face reflected an expression suggesting that he liked
what he saw in the deep, dark recesses of her mind.
“The men who have been here a while understand
that principle, anyway, and I certainly do.” His eyes traveled
appreciatively down the rounded figure hidden by the boring
jogging suit. “Yep, they’re going to love you, all right.”
Valerie nodded, released him and brushed her
hands down her blah gray jogging shirt, which probably didn’t
enhance her round body in the least. “So after the interested
men select me, then what?”
His gaze narrowed. “Then you select the one man
you like best out of those who are interested and he takes you
to meet his group.”
“Oh yeah, the group. They mentioned the groups
when I first got here. How many men are in your group?”
Valerie nodded and smiled. “I hear that’s the
His eyebrows lifted. “Then if all of us agree
you’re the one for us, we seal the deal.”
Sex? Did ‘seal the deal’ in this dream mean sex?
Of course it did. It was her dream. It could mean whatever she
Valerie studied the man before her. He had a nice
face. A patient face. He was tall and his wavy strawberry-blond
hair and general body build reminded her of an Iowa farm boy. He
perhaps also had a touch of Irish in his blood. Sexy, as far as
she was concerned.
Valerie wanted to ensure she could find this man
again. “What’s your name?”
“You can call me Hauser.”
“I’m Valerie.” She reached out and touched his
shoulder. She squeezed it. The muscle in his arm was solid, not
like in her usual dreams, when you reached for something that
you wanted and it vaporized.
He laughed nervously. “Are you sure you’re okay,
“So can I just pick you? And you would be one of
the men I spent time with here in this place?” She glanced
around the sterile hallways where they stood as if someone might
witness her molesting his shoulder with prurient intent.
His eyes widened and he looked over at his
friend. The other man shook his head. Hauser chuckled and said,
“I believe we have to make our selections in the gauntlet arena
for it to count.”
“Okay. Let’s go there. I’d like to choose you. Is
that okay?” Valerie ran her hand from his muscled chest to his
fine flat abs. He made a sound somewhere between a grunt and a
surprised growl. “Will you step up at the gauntlet arena so I
can choose you?”
“Yes. I believe I will.”
“Excellent.” Valerie sighed. She knew she’d wake
up before anything ‘good’ happened, but planned to enjoy this
dream for as long as it lasted.
Hauser’s smile dissolved and his expression
hardened. “You understand what the five of us in our group want,
She laughed. “Yes. You all want sex. I get it.”
Hauser exchanged a knowing smile with his friend,
who sent his gaze to the ceiling as if in disbelief. Perhaps he
was looking for a partner too. The man who accompanied Hauser
was attractive in a long-haired, rebel guy sort of way, but
Valerie much preferred Hauser.
The three of them strolled down the blue-lit
hallway. After two or three turns that completely made her lost,
she noticed they now moved towards a group of people. There were
several of the painted aliens dressed just like the first alien
guy, only these two had green skin and blond hair.
Approaching slowly, Valerie saw that they stood
outside a set of over-tall wooden double doors. A line of girls
waited for entrance, and each time the door opened to admit one,
a rousing cheer went up, cut off only by the door closing.
“So let me get this straight. I wait in line
while you go inside. Then when it’s my turn to go inside, I walk
down the gauntlet, they cheer and then you’ll come and get me.”
“For the most part, yes, that’s right. Keep
walking as far as you can, I’ll be towards the end of the
gauntlet row. They’ll be lining the ropes on either side.
Sometimes it gets a little crowded by the time you get to the
end, but I’ll grab your wrist when you get close enough to me.
If you still want to be with my group, just touch my skin
anywhere. When the crowd clears, declare that you’ve chosen me.”
She reached out and stroked her hand down his
arm. “Should I yell out your name?”
Hauser shook his head. “Probably not. We
shouldn’t have met ahead of time. Some of the other men might
complain that I took unfair advantage.” He winked.
Mesmerized by his wink, Valerie finally answered,
They were within shouting distance of the group
waiting outside the tall doors, but no one had looked up to see
them approaching yet. Hauser slowed his stride. “May I ask you a
“If I select you as the mate for my group, how
often will you allow sex for each of us?”
Valerie shrugged. “I don’t know. What’s the
average for that sort of thing?” She expected to wake up before
any actual sex took place, but she played along.
“The Others think that once every other month is
“That’s what we call the multicolored aliens
Nodding, she asked, “And sex every other month
“I’ve been here for almost two months already.
I’m starting to get shaky. I hear at three months I’ll want to
Valerie sympathized. She didn’t want him to
suffer for a second. Glancing back at the hallway they’d just
come from, she wondered if she could talk him into a quickie in
some remote closet. Just looking at him made her want to climb
up his body, licking all the way. Given all the rules they
seemed to have, she imagined that wouldn’t happen. They probably
had rules against closets and any licking taking place inside
“Hmm. Well, how about twice a month for each guy.
What’s that, ten times for me each month? I could do that,
easy.” Besides, it was a dream. Not like she would ever get to
have any real sex with this gorgeous guy anyway. She would be on
the verge of ecstasy, about to experience multiple orgasmic
delights, and then her alarm clock would shrilly ring before the
first ripple of climax hit her unsatisfied body.
That was the way her dreams always worked,
His eyes widened. “That would be very generous of
Valerie shrugged. “If they all look like you, it
will be my pleasure.” She suspected that even if the others
looked like Quasimodo, the elephant man, king of the lepers and
Satan, Hauser would still be worth it all on his own. He was a
walking advertisement for the kind of insatiable sex appeal
she’d only dreamed about. The kind of immediate attraction she’d
waited for in her awake life. Could she drag Hauser back through
this fabulous dream to her awake life? Likely not.
Hauser winked at her and separated himself before
anyone noticed they’d walked down the hall together. He entered
a smaller door next to the double doors where all the women in
line entered one at a time.
Stepping up to the last woman in the long line,
Valerie studied the other females while she waited for her turn.
They’d obviously changed clothes. Many were attired in fancy
dresses, sported freshly coiffed hair and wore makeup. The
majority of them were frighteningly skinny, as Hauser had
Valerie looked down at her sweat outfit and
suddenly felt sort of foolish. Her hair was pulled away from her
face and secured with a gray scrunchy, which matched her equally
boring gray cotton jogging suit.
Over her shoulder, she noticed a fresh batch of
four women, also dressed up in very fancy clothing, approach to
stand in line behind her. She probably should have gone with the
initial group to change, but she guessed it didn’t matter.
Valerie had a guy lined up and Hauser hadn’t cared about her
clothes. Undoubtedly, sex was more important than fashion from a
male perspective. Suddenly, a disturbing thought occurred to her
and she hoped Hauser hadn’t been teasing her. It wouldn’t be the
first time a man had stood her up.
The gauntlet arena door opened and another
exuberant cheer sounded as the woman in line directly ahead of
Valerie disappeared through the tall entryway. She took a long
step forward and into the attention of the new alien guy. He
glanced up and down her body a few times as if with curiosity.
His gaze finally landed on her face with an expression that said
although he found her attire completely inappropriate, he didn’t
want to argue over it or stop the speed of the line to question
She broke the ice by speaking before he changed
his mind and expressed disapproval of her clothing. “Let me
guess, your name is Aqua.”
“Correct.” One light-blond eyebrow on his
aqua-painted face lifted. “Are you ready to make your selection
in the gauntlet arena?”
Valerie answered with a hesitant, “Yes,” even as
unease slid through her veins. Hauser had seemed very
interested. She closed her eyes and sent up a little prayer that
he wasn’t lying about wanting her.
“When I open the door, make your way down the
roped off areas. Look for those men you find appealing. Touch
the skin of the one you want with your open hand and further
instructions will follow.”
“Right.” Valerie nodded and shrugged as though
she’d done this a hundred times before.
Without a further word, Aqua opened the door and
ushered her through. Valerie was unprepared for the sheer volume
of men in attendance. There must have been hundreds of them and
another rousing cheer went up when she crossed the threshold
into the large darkened room. She took two steps inside, and the
door closed solidly behind her.
Valerie took a deep, silent breath and entered
the room. Much like the room she’d originally met all of her men
in, there was a sofa, two chairs and table in an arrangement,
but beyond the entry was an open set of double glass doors
leading to her perception of a fantasy bedroom.
What looked like miles of white gauzy fabric was
artfully draped and swirled over a huge canopied, four-poster
bed that was also covered in yards of white linen.
“Wow,” she whispered. “Nice room. Like out of a
Hauser’s hands landed on her shoulders. “Does it
relax you enough for what’s about to happen between us?”
Valerie turned to face a smiling Hauser as heat
rose to her cheeks. “I’m not sure.”
“Well, why don’t we start with a kiss and see
where that leads us.” Hauser gently slipped his hands through
her hair to cup her head. He leaned in for a kiss in the next
second and the utter pleasure of his skillful tongue was enough
to make her forget absolutely everything else.
He cradled her face with one hand as the other
slid around her back to clench her solidly against his body.
It was no secret why they were here. Hauser
hadn’t had sex for a long time and she was here to relieve his
discomfort. That was her job. Her primary purpose in this
Hauser’s tongue brushed tenderly against hers and
a tendril of desire unwound in her body. A moan escaped. He
squeezed her tighter as more moaning ensued from her throat. Her
vocal response prompted his hand to blaze a trail down her spine
on a mission to massage her ass. His thickening cock pulsed
between them, sending a shower of sensation and moisture between
The dress she wore was silk and she hadn’t
bothered to put any underwear on beneath it. Hauser broke the
kiss to dip his hand beneath the hem at her knees. His light
stroke skimmed up the outside of her thigh. When he discovered
her lack of undergarments, he growled and thrust his hips
He pulled away far enough to catch her eye and
say, “My, aren’t you just full of surprises.”
“One or two.” She pulled his head down for
another sultry kiss.
His cock, huge and hard, pressed firmly into her
stomach as a shudder rippled down his body. He squeezed her bare
butt cheek once before sliding clever fingers between her legs.
Two long fingers thrust inside her wet slit before she could
protest. Not that she would have, but his intimate touch was a
Her Swiss-cheese memory gave her little in the
way of a foundation from her previous sexual experience. Given
that every touch from his fingers seemed alien and overwhelming,
she decided that she might be fairly inexperienced. His fingers
slid in and out of her slick entrance easily and the feeling,
while deliciously decadent, also felt incredibly naughty.
His thumb rubbed across her sensitive clit and
she jumped backwards in surprise, breaking not only the kiss,
but the intimate connection.
Panting, Hauser asked, “What’s wrong?”
“I…um…nothing. I’m…just not used to…you know.”
She ended her stuttering sentence with a whisper.
The rate of his breathing said he was still
trying to get it under control. “No. Tell me.”
“I don’t remember much about my life on Earth,
but I get the feeling that I’m not very experienced…sexually.
What you’re doing to me…seems very unexpected…and naughty.”
He laughed. “That’s okay. I think naughty pretty
much describes this whole scenario. But don’t worry, I’ll teach
you everything you need to know.”
Valerie nodded. “Okay.” She took a deep breath
and released it.
“God, you’re sexy.” He grabbed her shoulder with
one hand, hugged her close and planted his lips sensually across
her mouth, teasing her lips open with his tongue.
He danced her backwards slowly, through the
double glass doors and into the bedroom. His tongue dipped and
swirled inside her mouth, dueling with hers to a tempo only he
could hear. Valerie slung her arms around his neck to hold on as
they traveled. The thick ridge of his cock ground into her belly
and aroused speculation regarding his size. She now knew he was
huge and a ripple of arousal trickled down her body in
anticipation as her core throbbed in readiness for him.
Once next to the bed, he yanked the zipper of her
dress from neck to ass in one smooth, loud zip and a blast of
cool air brushed her bare back. Hauser separated them enough to
pull the pink dress off of her body. She was completely naked
She boldly grabbed his cock, which pulsed against
her belly, and squeezed. He was indeed huge.
“Jesus, that feels incredible.” Hauser gave her a
salacious grin and quickly pulled his clothing off until he,
too, was completely naked. He reached past her and pulled the
comforter down, exposing the sheets. As he straightened, he
latched his lips onto her breast, sucking one lucky nipple into
the depths of his warm mouth.
Valerie slid her hands to his face to hold him in
place as the most acute pleasure rode wildly inside her. He
suckled and a delightful zing shot straight to her clit and a
gush flooded the core of her pussy. Hauser didn’t linger, but
soon kissed a path from breast to mouth and drove his tongue
languidly inside her mouth as he pulled her snugly against his
pulsing erection. She nudged him with her hips and he clutched
her even tighter.
“You feel so good, Valerie,” he murmured against
her cheek. “I don’t think I can last too much longer.”
“You don’t have to. Take me to bed. I don’t want
you to suffer anymore.”
“Trust me, I’m not suffering at all.” He latched
his mouth to hers.
