Janis Stone hurried into the bridal
boutique, approaching the counter; she stated her name and
told the clerk she wanted to try on her wedding dress. Janis
had attended her friendís wedding showers and danced at their
weddings always looking for Mr. Right. Now finally, after all
these years, it was her turn. In the middle of the dress
fitting, an announcer came over the store speaker. The
arrogant voice stated that he was from the space ship Ecstasy
of Generation and they required wives to replace their females
who had perished from an unknown virus. As soon as the voice
cut off, dizziness flooded Janisí senses. When she awakened,
Janis had been transported to the sick bay on the space ship,
and was being cared for by a cat-like alien doctor named
Dr. Delos had been appointed Official
Liaison to the Brides. He explained to Janis that the
Terilian malesí survival was at stake, they were at the end of
their endurance, they could not survive the four-year journey
home to Teril without mating, and they would die before they
Delos had been fascinated by Janis, he
had an overwhelming desire to lick her skin, but he knew very
well she could never be his. Taddus was a Primus, he would
claim Janis before second rank Dr. Delos would be allowed to
choose a bride.
One Thousand Brides is an
adventure through space interjected with witty sarcasm.
Solange Ayre characterized Janis as a strong earth woman who
knows her own mind. Delos is a sensual alien who enjoys
giving pleasure to Janis. I have a fondness for cats, so I
embraced Delos as my favorite.
One Thousand Brides warmed my
heart, and made me laugh; itís really good story!
