When Rowan Layne emerges from a grueling exam to public panic over breaking news of aliens among us, returning to the legal profession loses its luster. She’s not ready to discover her own alien DNA percentage, but needs answers about snarky voices in her overly sensitive ears. And if she keeps riling local officials with views on alien rights in her newspaper column, she might need to move or invest in Kevlar.
Rowan Layne is on the move to a new life in Las Vegas with her critter sidekicks in this second adventure of the Other Worldly series.
The US is still grappling with knowledge of alien and hybrid life on Earth as presidential tweets and fearmongering fuel anti-alien vigilantes, but Rowan’s still poised to write an authorized tell-all about Red Orbiters. Plus, the otherworldly cuisine in Vegas will be delish. Before Rowan gets to Sin City, though, Raucous and Rowdy disappear, leaving her incommunicado from her Red Orbiter lover despite her supernatural auditory abilities.
When it’s suggested she shelter in space to avoid the clutches of an outgoing maniacal president’s secret police leading up to the January inauguration, writer and defender of alien rights Rowan Layne heads to Earth’s moon with her critters for this third adventure in the Other Worldly series. But will she be safe there from anti-alien vigilantes?
As if it weren’t challenging enough for Rowan Layne to address Britain’s Parliament on behalf of the otherworldly, she has alien misogynists gunning for her. They even follow her from London through Scotland with her newly knighted, former MI6 friend Red MacLeod, though her pointy shoes prove very useful against them.
Accompanying Rowan and Red is the Red Orbiter Robertson-Wilde family, with rapidly growing toddler triplets. Rowan, honorary aunt, needs to be more careful what she says around the wee aliens. Little Ferus keeps calling her Lady Rowan in a strange Gaelic accent, and she’s having enthralling visions of kilted strongmen in ancient stone circles, with bagpipes echoing on the wind.
Rowan Layne’s alien tell-all book tour is underway and under siege in Salem, Massachusetts, and Washington, DC, by sanctimonious misogynists obsessed with the sex lives of others. Why is that?
Anti-alien fanatics continue wreaking havoc in this fifth novel of the Other Worldly series, including members of Congress who project their nefarious pursuits onto Rowan and her Red Orbiter and Labyrinthian pals. There is little they won’t seek to destroy or control for diamond mining on Mars.
Alien rights advocate Rowan Layne feels as if she's spiraling down a rabbit hole when two hot-as-lava males approach her in Las Vegas, revealing where they're from and what they seek—without her having to ask myriad questions.
In this sixth Other Worldly novel, Rowan travels to an unexpected place in space awash in the essence and vibration of higher self. But is it unconditional love or uncontrollable desire she's feeling for yet another entity who seems strangely familiar?
An overwhelming wave of new and old friends intent on marriage and babies has Rowan convinced the universe is messing with her. Not to mention cheeky roadrunners. It's bad enough she’s turning sixty with an Oregon birthday celebration featuring miniature golf and Mom shoe shopping online, but there's also potentially dangerous intrigue simmering near Washington's Mount Adams.
