Synopsis

Three alien couples in three space fantasy stories are about to fall in love in this complete collection.

In Defying Gravity, homesick upon the SS Perseid, twenty-two-year-old Linia, a young linguist, thinks she signed up for a mission of peace, but her crew members have another plan: attack the planet Medusa. Bored with his dying planet, twenty-two-year-old Alezandros, a space cruiser pilot, joins the Medusan army in his quest for adventure. When the SS Perseid clashes with the Medusans' cruisers, Alezandros and Linia's lives intertwine. Sucked through a wormhole, they crash upon a post-apocalyptic Earth and are captured by cannibals. In adjacent cells, Alezandros and Linia cast their differences aside for a common bond: escape. But when romantic feelings emerge between them, they might do the unthinkable because for a Medusan and a Persean to fall in love, it would defy gravity.

In Fighting Gravity, forced into executing Aresia's people, eighteen-year-old Phoebus escapes the Aresian Guard by flying his spaceship through a wormhole. The only single woman of marrying age, eighteen-year-old Marissa flees town instead of becoming a third wife. When Phoebus's spacecraft crashes upon an asteroid-ravaged Earth, he is captured by a rogue Earthling youth and thrown into a cellar. Marissa stumbles upon the spacecraft, but it explodes before she can find any sign of the alien. When she awakens, she discovers the alien's whereabouts and vows to help him. But the Aresians have landed and are searching for him. Phoebus and Marissa must battle against their peoples in a quest for freedom. And through it all, an Earthling and an Aresian will find it easier to fight gravity than their love for each other.

In Pull of Gravity, a no-nonsense Earthling corporal, twenty-one-year-old Nike accepts a mission to destroy the winged-people of Cupidis to give her species a new home planet. A spoiled Cupidian prince, twenty-one-year-old Edonys gets whatever he wants until his dying father tells him he must choose a mate and take his rightful place as king. Nike and her reconnaissance crew's space cruiser lands upon Cupidis, and they are taken to the royal palace. The king's decline leads her to believe Mission: Conquest will be easy. Edonys refuses his father's last request to fall in love, but Nike isn't just anyone. She's bold and different than any Cupidian female. As Nike and Edonys's quests intertwine, an Earthling and a Cupidian will find it easier to ignore the pull of gravity than the pull of love.

This collection is approximately 50,000 words or 200 pages in length and contains the novelettes Defying Gravity and Fighting Gravity and the novella Pull of Gravity.
