AN ALIEN EXCHANGE
by Keri Kruspe
Aimee Gwiazdowski has a passion for Alien Abduction romance stories. She vicariously lives through the heroines of her books to escape her lonely, loveless life. Until one morning, she wakes up in a strange, white room where an alluring voice invites her to the “Exchange” to find love and adventure in another world. Did she dare believe it? Could she leave everything behind and take a chance to become one of those heroines who finds true love among the stars?
Exiled Prince Qayyum E’etu and commander of the space vessel StarChance has a mission—transport the human women to the Exchange along with an offer he can’t refuse: find evidence against rumored human trafficking connected with the Exchange. If he can successfully bring the traitors back to Zerin for justice, it would give him a chance to return home. How was he supposed to know that meeting a human woman would put everything he was working for in jeopardy?
As unforeseen evil slowly brews discord within the galaxy, it works to tear Aimee and Qay further apart. If they don’t learn to overcome their fears and trust the love they have for each other, the coming cataclysm will devastate not only Zerin, but Earth as well.
An Alien Exchange is the first book in a sci-fi romance that features intergalactic action, engrossing plots, and courageous individuals. If you like fast-paced action, raw emotions, and sexy aliens, you’ll love this new space adventure.
Aimee knew she’d made a mistake the minute she sat down. The music in the crowded sports bar was too loud, the lighting was too dim, and the air was thick with a mixture of greasy food, sweaty bodies, and desperation. She glanced at her fellow managers from the credit union. These were the people she now called “friends,” not that any of them knew it.
Seated at the round table was “on-the-prowl” Melissa, who sat next to the group’s smart phone addict, just-out-of-college Emily. Good-looking, middle-aged “manwhore” William, was making some moves to grab Emily’s attention for the umpteenth time. He had his sights on the younger Emily while he ignored Melissa’s not so subtle attempts to get his attention. Then there was Mary, who started at the credit union when women had to wear pearls and nylons. Mary was in an ongoing, low argument with Mr. Reed, their “still in the closet” suave CEO.
Watching her coworker’s made Aimee’s chest squeeze. She had no business pretending she wanted to be here, surrounded by people but all alone. Why had she come in the first place? Oh yeah, she was trying to make it back to the human race after the violent deaths of her parents in a mass shooting last year. She ached that she’d never see them again. Coupled with the breakup of her five-year marriage, it was hard for Aimee to reconnect with others. Life-long friends from college had either married or moved away until one day Aimee realized they were all gone. As a manager, she couldn’t make friends with her staff, so her only choice was her peers sitting at this table.

WHY KERI WROTE THIS BOOK
I was reading one of my favorite Sci-fi romances on my electronic reader after watching the latest’s news about computer hacking. It got me thinking…what if aliens hacked into my reading habits to find someone like me who liked alien romances. Wouldn’t that be a perfect way to find women who might be willing to leaving Earth to find love among the stars…
I envisioned Star Wars meets Pretty women. And that, they say, was that. My story “An Alien Exchange” was born.
I dedicate this book to those who are alone in a crowd. To those who are desperately trying to right a wrong they’ve done in the past. Sometimes taking a chance may seem crazy, but you’ll never know until you try.
