A streak of light moves rapidly across the sky, and then fades out suddenly.

“Did you see that?” I ask, excitedly. “It was a shooting star. We should make a wish.”

Hayden smiles and says in a low tone, “You do realize a shooting star is actually just a meteoroid. No more than a tiny fragment that’s the left over dust from a comet. It’s those pieces that can travel at great speeds—”

“Hayden, seriously? An astronomy lesson? Why can’t you just see how beautiful and amazing the stars are? Maybe it’s a sign.”

“A sign of what?”

I turn away, but I can’t hide the red glow that warms my face. “You know, like fate or something.”

“I suppose…” he pauses, staring up into the darkness. “Is there some rhyme we need to say or something to make sure our wish comes true?”

A slow grin spreads across my face. Hayden’s actually indulging me, and not getting all Mr. Mature Mega-Brainiac for a change.

“No. Just make a wish.”

“Should we do it at the same time?” he asks.

My smile widens. “Sure.”

He closes his eyes, with an amused grin playing across his sexy features. I close mine, too and make a wish.

 “So, how does this work? Do we tell each other what we wished for? Or won’t it come true?” he asks.

I open my eyes and look at him. “Hush! I’m wishing and I can’t concentrate with you asking so many questions.”

“I’ll wait.” He whistles a soft tune, then laces his fingers together and tucks them behind his head.

“You’re impossible!” I laugh and playfully swat at him.

“Share time?” His eyes twinkle. “Is it safe now?”

“We both saw the shooting star, so I think it’s all right to share our wishes,” I say. “What was yours?”

His gaze rests on my mouth, and his tongue darts out, wetting his lips. “I’d rather you went first.”

My cheeks heat. “It’s kind of embarrassing…”

“You can tell me anything.” He looks up at the twinkling starlight and sighs deeply. A long pause glides between us, then without looking at me, he whispers, “Sloane, of the millions of stars up in the sky, none of them will ever shine as brightly as you.”

VOLUME ONE: Starlight Saga

High school reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and crazy dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life….
