This snippet is from Emmily, Unbound, an SFR story. To read a compilation of all snippets posted for this story, click Here: Emmily Unbound, Chapters 1 & 2 Emmily, the main character, has lost pretty much everything in the last twelve months: her marriage, her parents, her job, and her house. She and her dog, Murphy, have moved to the mountains of Pennsylvania into an old, remote, hunting camp her parents willed to her. On her first day there, along a desolate road she's been forced at gunpoint to haul a wounded man to her house.:
Sometimes the simplest plan isn’t simple at all…
After losing everything that bound her to her ordinary and happy life, Emmily has one plan: move to the mountains, and never-ever fall in love again. But, everything goes sideways when a UFO crash-lands on the ridge next to hers, and on a desolate road, she’s waylaid by men demanding help for their injured ‘General’. He’s confused, bleeding, and sweet Lord, good looking—even while he sneers and growls at her.
Fleeing an ambush meant to kill him, Gen Rael is gravely injured when his ship crashes on Earth. The human his crew captures to aid them is a confounding mixture of terrified, defiant, and beautiful. The last thing he wants is a mate--especially a human one. But she’s cutting through the steel wall he keeps around his heart.
Despite being their hostage, Emmily isn’t blind to the peril they’re in. There’s a threat coming and it’s lethal to all of them, including her.
And about her plan to never fall in love again? Looks like that’s in peril, too…
