BLURB:
Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.

As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA, Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human "genetic cows," and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to control the Teluosians on Earth.

When Eve's mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam's true love or his next "genetic cow?"


Excerpt:
I laughed. "So you are eavesdropping on my conversation for my sake."

"Yup."

I drank my tea then and looked at her over the rim of my cup. When she had finished humming Why Do Fools Fall in Love I put my mug down and looked at her. "Ask me already!"

My momma daintily lowered her mug down and smoothed her robe over her lap. "So, is he hot?"

I shook my head and stood up, gathering my laptop to go to my room. "One, I am so not having the conversation if a guy is hot or not with you because you'll have me picking names for our children. Two, even if he is hot it doesn't matter because he is a total weirdo."

I left the kitchen and heard my momma yell after me.

"It sounds like the beginning of a great romance."
