How to Marry an Alien Blog Tour (Excerpt)

Hey everyone!
Today I'd like to share with you a few things about the third installment in Magan Vernon's YA Sc-Fi series, including a swoon-worthy excerpt. :)

Title: How to Marry an Alien
Series: My Alien Romance, #3
Author: Magan Vernon
Release date: November 18th 2012
Publisher: Calta Press

Alex’s interstellar relationship has finally been sealed in the eyes of the human world, so now she can move on to her next step: college. 

With Ace by her side and a new piece of jewelry on her finger, she thinks she is ready for anything. Well, almost anything.
Her new roommate holds a dangerous link to her past that Alex isn't sure if she can handle. Then there is the whole alien fiancĂ© thing. Every time she tries to get closer to Ace, he seems to pull further away. Top that off with a full summer class load and a few more alien attacks and it’s just another day for Alex. 

Except this time she isn’t sure if marrying an alien will be the happy ending she’s hoping for.

**While the first two alien books were mildly tame, this book is a little different. I'm not saying it's Fifty Shades or anything, but Alex is eighteen, she's going off to college and she's been with her alien boyfriend for a year; there is guranteed to be some heat. I'm recommending this for upper YA/New Adult readers.**


Obviously the Circe doctors did a fine job healing him. He didn't look like he ever had a scratch on him with his smooth, porcelain skin and his hair in his usual spikes. I wanted to pull him close to me and just inhale his clean scent. But the giant camera facing us from the corner of the elevator made me think otherwise.
"Can I not just be excited to finally be able to see my princess?" His warm hands found mine, intertwining our fingers as he pulled them up to brush his lips against my knuckles.
"You are a smooth talker, sir."
"Likewise." He put our intertwined hands down and a smile crept along his statuesque face. Every time he smiled, it made his dark eyes light up and brought me back to the first moment I met him the moment he saved my life. If I wasn't already excited to see him, the smile was all I needed to get him off the elevator and lead him to my bedroom.
"It's smaller than the rooms at Circe, and you are to share it with someone else, but it's..." Ace paused, walking from one end of the room to the other in only a few long strides. "Nice."
"Well I'm sure you will be able to make yourself at home." I slid past him and sat down on the bed, patting the spot next to me.
Ace sat down and then laid down, spreading his long body across my bed. "Yeah, I can deal with this."
Seeing him stretched across the bed, his hands behind his head and every muscle rippling through his arm, made me want him so bad. My V card was still very much intact, but after all of my run-ins with death and after seeing Ace so close to it, the fear of losing him forever made me want to give up that card in a bad way.
I laid down next to him, placing my head on his chest and trailing my fingers up and down his chiseled stomach.
"Princess, if you keep touching me like that I'm not going to be able to stay still for long."
I lifted my head, meeting his dark eyes with my own. There was nothing more that I wanted to do than to get lost in them. His hand crept up to the side of my face before he pulled me down until his mouth was on mine. The sliding of his tongue between my lips was the go ahead I needed to move from my spot next to him and climb onto his beautiful body. His hands were on fire, sending the spark all the way through my back while his fingertips scaled my bare arms. My body pressed against his cold shell made me want to cry out with a mixture of fire and ice against my skin.
While his hands were against my shoulders, my fingers made their way to the buttons on his shirt. He'd become accustomed to wearing plaid, pearl snap shirts over his temperature control suit when we were in public. Normally I thought the shirts looked silly, but with the easy access they provided me, I suddenly liked them more.
