Anthros, aka Mark Arianos is a Markarian
fugitive alien, things at home had reached epic proportions in
the pure bloodlines department. And without an infusion of new
mixed blood, his race would cease to exist. Years ago Anthros
formed a solution. His mission now is to retrieve the whiz
kid and return home to save the populace. Landing on earth,
Anthros is attempting to get in touch with the network called
Center of the Universe, when he is overcome by too much air,
he stops to rest in a back yard and as fate would have it,
that yard belongs to the parents of his target child Michael.
Hearing a noise in the yard, Dove Hansen,
Michael’s nanny and tutor, steps out to investigate, but is
intercepted by the arrival of the parents. She thought the
man was a drunk, but the parents claimed Anthros is a relative
named Mark. Dove is picking up weird vibes from Mark, just
like the vibes she gets from her secret dream lover, when they
are having virtual sex; Dove does not know that Mark is not
inebriated, but light-headed from oxygen.
A Lick and a Promise had me
scarcely able to sit upright in a chair; this story is
hilarious with down-to-earth humor that I could relate to.
Ann Wesley Hardin adds a new twist to mind-blowing sex. The
characters and dialogue is so real, that I will never look at
my neighbors in the same way again. A Lick and a
Promise has a well-paced plot that leaves the entry
open for the next episode. I look forward to it. I enjoyed
this story very much.
