Today we are going to enjoy another excerpt from the delightfully sensual novelette by Kaye Manro entitled FORBIDDEN LOVE.

I hope you've brought your snacks to enjoy today's peek.


A chilled flute glass
lemon lime jello
vanilla ice cream
chocolate covered graham crackers grasshopper's ( yeah they're green )
ginger ale
cut up cantelope, pineapple, grapes all in chunk style

Ok make your jello following the recipe on the box for gigglers. Cut in cubes and keep refrigerated until you are ready.

While the jello is becoming solid. Dip your flute glass in water then in sugar crystals these can be the colored crystals for cakes and cupcakes. Put in the freezer for about twenty minutes. As long as it takes for you to cut up the cantelope, pineapple into chunks and break the grasshopper chocolate covered graham crackers into chunks.

Now to create your dessert.

In the bottom place some crumbled chunks of your graham crackers. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream some more graham chunks and a few cubes of your jello. Add some chunks of your fruit and some more sugary sprinkles. Pour in just a bit of ginger ale so that it resembles a float. You can add some cool whip or spray in some whipped creme then place some of the fruit on toothpick and add to the glass. Now, sit back and enjoy your excerpt from CHEEKY LIZARD LOVE OOPS I mean FORBIDDEN LOVE

“So how did you learn to speak our language?” Maya asked, “Not your native tongue I’ll bet.”

He scrutinized her through squinted eyes. A crinkle stretched across her nose where a line of minuscule brown dots scattered down onto each cheek. He had an impulse to stroke the dots, see if he could rub them off. No, he should not touch her again.

“While studying your planet, I picked up words and phrases.”

She leaned across the counter and captured his eyes with hers. “Why are you studying us?”

He did not answer her question. He had told her too much already. The less she knew about him the better. “Take me to my spacecraft,” he said.

She stared at him.

He hissed out more air and then shook his head. “I had not planned contact.”

She scooted around and came to stand close to him. He could tell she wanted to touch him but did not. “Maybe you didn’t plan it but here you are. So why not take advantage of the situation...” her words trailed off and this time she did touch him. She slid her hand over his chest and onto his face.

He caught her fingers in a rough hold. The act caused his talons to unsheathe. “No, I cannot. I will not.” He dropped her hand. A sudden realization—glancing down at his body, he stood naked before her his mating organ erect. “What have you done with my bodily covering?”

“I cut it off,” she answered. “I had to do it so I could examine you to see if you were hurt. Your space suit encased you so tightly, I had no choice.”

He hissed close to her ear. In a display that surprised even him, T’Kon slid a claw around her back hooking her clothing with a talon. In a swift motion, he slashed it from her. The garments landed on the floor in tattered pieces.



T’Kon and Maya are galaxies apart, so different yet so much alike…

Exploring the galaxies at faster than light speed (FTL) is routine for the inhabitants of Asconage. T’Kon’s cool-blood culture exists on a planet in the scorch of binary suns. Yet there are governing archaic rules to prohibit interspecies mating with those from different worlds and evolutionary paths.

When T’Kon crashes his spacecraft on Terrain, a seasonal planet barely on the cusp of space travel, he cannot resist Maya, the warm-blooded audacious female who gives him aid. His desire for her entices him to abandon his species moral code.

There is little time to linger inside their illicit passion. The warring factions of her world are closing in. A quick fix of his spacecraft and a fast exit is his best choice. But can T’Kon leave Maya behind and forsake their emerging Forbidden Love

Bio for Kaye Manro

As a romance author, I lean toward the adventuresome in my writing. I love science fiction and all the enticing quantum theories surrounding it. Where characters rush through outer space at Faster than Light speed, or teleport into another time, and even slipstream into an alternate reality. I like creating sizzling love scenes too with sexy heroes, and captivating heroines. It just seemed natural to combine all these elements together in my stories and write (SFR) Science Fiction Romance.

I hope you enjoy reading FORBIDDEN LOVE my latest SFR.
