Want to read a deleted love scenefrom United? (OF COURSE YOU DO. Read on!)

During revisions, authors often have to cut material to quicken the pace or enhance character development. This was certainly the case with United…but I’m not one to waste a perfectly good love scene. So I’m offering a PDF of the deleted material to anyone who leaves a review of United on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Edit: Woohoo! Starflight is here! But I keep hearing my characters' names mispronounced, so here's a quick phonetic guide. It's Doran (DOOR-IN) *not* Dorian, and Solara (SO-LAW-RUH). Hope you guys enjoy their story. :)

Let's talk about Starflight!

“He prepared the richest, most indulgent and disgusting dish imaginable - a bowl of fudge ripple ice-cream topped with chocolate syrup, semi-sweet chocolate morsels, chocolate sprinkles, and, for good measure, a chocolate brownie from the pantry. He even garnished it with a handful of M&M's.

(...) "Look what I made for you. A bowl of diabetes.”
Melissa Landers, Alienated

“It's common knowledge that shiny rocks are preferred among human females.”

“Her dad's voice boomed from inside the house. "I've got a Glock, a shovel, and five acres of woods, Johnson!”

Nick Flynn Thanks for accepting my friend request. I read Alienated and Invaded in 2 days and can't wait to get my hands on United!

Linda Dobinson Hi Melissa,

I just finished reading Starflight, and I totally loved it, it is one of my favourite books so far this year. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the next one :)

message 5: by Misty

Misty I fell in love with the cover art and even though I'm not usually one to enjoy books about aliens or space...once I started reading Alienated I couldn't put it down. Alienated has quickly and quite easily made it's way onto my favorites list. I couldn't wait to finish but when I did I was sad it was over. Can not wait to read Invaded. I'll be pre-ordering my copy ASAP! :D
