Katherine Deauxville has created an outrageously funny situation for this otherworldly romance. There has never been a love story quite like the one between earthling Maryellen Caswell and alien Sub-commander Ur Targon. It's not the hero's claims to be from another planet that makes this story unique (we've had heroes from outer space before) it's that Targon has set up housekeeping inside Maryellen, and she's not even sure that kicking the intruder out is the best solution -- since Targon is devoting all his otherworldly sensual skills to winning her willing cooperation. You see, Targon is perfectly situated for his official mission...and the passion he shares with his "hostess" makes the personal situation pretty nearly perfect as well. Before long these star-crossed lovers are embroiled in a romantically madcap mix-up including the New York Mets, pickles, and alien endearments that Maryellen loves to hear even if she can't pronounce them.
