Blurb:

At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service.
Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate. Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.
Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.
                                                                                                                                                                                               

Review

A man from another galaxy, choosing to stay on earth after being wronged.  A women left by her childhood sweetheart and unable to have children. Thrown together through a dating agency specializing in one night stands. A strange premise for a romance short story.

Firstly, in the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t read many sci-fi romances and perhaps this has colored my views. Like other reviewers (see  below) I have found it very hard to elaborate on opinions here so as not to spoil the story for others. It is a lovely short novella (perfect for your lunch-break) so key details are difficult to avoid!

There where many elements in this story which, when put together, should make a lovely story. But they did not gel for me. I found the premise of a “one night only guarantee” to force an element of conflict. The description of the hero’s manly area just didn’t it for me.

Celestial Seduction had the elements of a good read but didn’t really float my boat.
