AN ALIEN FOR CHRISTMAS
Empaths of Lyria
Meet Kathleen: a thirty-six-year-old Plain Jane extraordinaire, with a Ph. D in Xenobiology and another in Spinsterhood. This year, yet again, her sorry self is stuck working on Mars for the holidays. Aside from dodging the unrequited attentions of a certain cringe-worthy bachelor on the station, she mentally prepares for yet another lonely and boring Christmas.
But when her sister sends her an early gift in the form of a drool-worthy alien hellbent on fulfilling her every desire, Kathleen isn’t so sure she wishes to stay off the naughty list anymore.
Beautifully written with serious thought and depth, and a few chuckles along the way.
