#Excerpt from Across Worlds: Collision by S. A. Snow @BooksBySnow #Erotica #SciFi

Stepping out into the hall, Usnavi started in the opposite direction that Jane had been facing. While they walked, Jane reached over and grabbed zher arm, both her hands wrapping around the leathery flesh of the alien. Usnavi shivered. Zhe tried to shake the hold by pointing out different places on the ship, hoping to get Jane excited about something other than zhim, but each time she saw something new, her grip tightened.

Shockwaves rolled down zher spine, pooling in the backs of zher legs with each passing step. Once they reached the observation room, where Jane would be able to sit and wait with a view of the passing stars, Usnavi shook her off and stepped back out of her reach.

“I will return quickly,” zhe stated.

“Wait,” Jane whined.

“I will be back in a short period of time. However, I must speak with my superiors about your exploits on the ship.”

Jane lifted one delicate red eyebrow as Usnavi backed out of the observation room, staring at Jane until the doors shut. She waited thirty seconds for zhim to return before she set about exploring the newest room she had to herself—luckily this one was much larger than the last. The windows were huge and made up three walls of the room, and a half dozen chairs identical to the one in her room were placed carefully in the middle of the open space. On the last wall without windows, there was the door and a computer station, which sat unattended.

Unable to help herself, she darted across the room to the computer. She reached out hesitantly and touched the keyboard filled with unfamiliar symbols. The screen went from black to white and a box appeared with a blinking cursor inside it. She didn’t have to speak the language to know it was asking for a password, which she didn’t have.

She sighed deeply and went back to the window. Hesitantly, she lifted her hand and touched it. Instead of glass, she discovered it was a plastic-rubbery material that had a slight give when she pressed on it. Curiosity piqued, she extended one finger and poked it.

Her finger moved the material nearly an inch before it pushed back. Her brows knit in confusion, and she studied it carefully. Definitely not any sort of glass available on Earth. She made a mental note to ask Usnavi about it when zhe returned. She smiled softly—there were a lot of things on that list.

Pressing her face to the moveable glass, she tried to find any constellations she was familiar with. Her eyes searched for the Big Dipper, Cassiopeia, or Orion, anything that she would recognize. When she couldn’t even figure out which one was the North Star, she amused herself by finding new shapes in the inky sky. She found what looked to be a teddy bear, a dragon, and a sunflower before the door opened with a slight noise and her alien entered.


Jane expected six months undercover to be hard; she expected it to be lonely and bleak. She didn’t expect to find love. 

Jane Butler, a CIA operative, is assigned the task of infiltrating the Xanthians and determining if they’re a threat to humanity. Going undercover as a Xanthian mate, she boards the transport ship and meets Usnavi—her new mate. After spending six days traveling through space, Jane is ecstatic to explore the Xanthian station and soon sets out to complete her mission. The only problem? Usnavi—and the feelings she is quickly developing. 

Fumbling their way through varying sexual expectations, cooking catastrophes, and cultural differences, they soon discover life together is never boring. As Jane and Usnavi careen into a relationship neither of them expected, Jane uncovers dark secrets about the Xanthians and realizes she may no longer be safe. When it becomes clear she’s on her own, Jane is forced to trust and rely on Usnavi. Simultaneously struggling with her mission, her feelings for Usnavi, and homesickness, Jane faces questions she never imagined she would have to answer.
