     There are no men on Mala’s home planet. Only robots to serve and satisfy, but after viewing her space-traveling

​​grandmother’s documentary about the planet Earth, and seeing Sheriff, the superb male specimen in the documentary, Mala

​​knows she must break the rules of forbidden space travel and see for herself what a real man is like.

     ​​Sheriff Mason McKinley has his hands full after the town nutcase reports a UFO crashing near Devil’s Bend. The idiot

​​already has three reporters from a national rag magazine convinced Big Foot is in the area. When he investigates, he doesn’t

​​find little green men, instead he finds a very sexy female stumbling around in the dark.

     ​​Staying with Sheriff is the best solution. What wonderful things he has, like chocolate! It’s her duty to explore Sheriff’s

​​planet…and Sheriff. As long as the Elders don’t realize she’s gone, that is.

"Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind is a close encounter of the hilarious kind. The heroine's nonchalant humor, her quirky mannerisms and her misconceptions about herself on Earth are hysterical. The romance heats up fast with shower scenes and sex toys and remains prevalent throughout. The desire to know what could possibly happen next will make it hard to put this book down." -- Jennifer Madsen, Romantic Times
