Groaning, Brianna opened her eyes then gasped at the sudden ache in her
shoulder. Befuddled at first, she tried to focus her eyes in the dim light.
Then, she remembered.
Sheíd rescued those aliens, and the soldiers followed them to that clearing.
There was a bright light. Mark shot her! What the hell did she ever do to him?
He was the one who tried to rape her.
Again she looked around the small room. Where was she? Miklan! Heíd grabbed
her wrist and pulled her into that bright light. My God, I must be on a space
Moving gingerly, she slowly raised her arms and legs. They moved the way they
were supposed to, although there was a definite tenderness in her right
shoulder. Lifting her head, she moved it slowly from left to right Ė no pain. As
she eased herself into a sitting position, her blanket fell to her waist. Iím
Wrapping the blanket around herself, she swung her legs over the bunk and
pushed herself to her feet. Moving carefully, she gained her equilibrium and
worked the slight stiffness out of her legs. "I wonder how long Iíve been
unconscious," she said, her voice echoing around the small room. She sneezed.
Whatever kind of medicine was on her wound was strong.
Brianna pulled the blanket more tightly beneath her arms and walked to the
door. Tentatively, she placed her palm upon the handprint in the middle of the
door. It slid open with a slight whisper, revealing an empty room.
When she stepped cautiously into the larger room, the quiet hiss of the door
closing caused her to spin about. A handprint identical to that on the inside
was affixed to this side of the door also. Pressing her palm against it, she was
relieved when the door glided open. At least she could get back in. But, was it
a refuge or a cage?
Turning once more, Brianna took stock of her surroundings. This room was much
larger with sparse but what looked like comfortable furnishings. A table with
ten chairs was to one side while a sofa, overstuffed chair, and a smaller table
sat on the other side. A large plant, with pale blue leaves and flowers of a
darker blue, stood next to a closed door to her right; but it was the huge
window that drew her attention. There were drapes of a sort - pulled open. And,
outside of the window was nothing, absolutely nothing.
Brianna staggered to the window, braced her hands against it, and gaped at
the blackness. One tiny pinpoint of light could be seen far, far below, but it
flickered out as she stared at it. "Oh my God," she moaned, "I am in a
spaceship! Whereís Earth? How do I get home?" Frozen in place, her thoughts a
whirling maelstrom, she didnít hear the door slide open behind her.
As Char walked into the room, his eyes were drawn to the figure that stood
before the window. Stopping half way across the room, he stared at the woman who
had danced through his erotic dreams for the last week. She stood with her back
towards him a blanket covering her torso to the knees. Her fiery hair cascaded
to her hips, and a mental picture of those soft flames wrapped around his body
jumped into his mind.
"So, you have finally awakened."
Brianna tensed. She wasnít alone. She turned, slowly, and gasped in shock.
The man who shared the room with her was completely naked.

BRIANNA is an amazingly
emotionally exciting tale. Ms. Mays has created some of the best characters Iíve
ever read about. Brianna is one strong and sassy woman and Char is the perfect
man for her with all his sensuality and power. I loved how Brianna stood up for
herself continuously throughout even though she had been thrust into an
extraordinary situation. The passion between Char and Brianna is out of this
world and the things that man can do with his tail are simply amazing and highly
arousing. The political machinations and characterization are unbelievable and
extremely well written. The variety of races that we are introduced to is great
and Ms. Mays must have spent some time creating such believable beings.
BRIANNA has gone to the top
of the list of my favorite futuristic romances. I cannot express how much I
enjoyed this book and I sincerely hope that there are more in the works. This is
one universe that needs further exploration!

What follows is a story packed with nonstop action,
hot, steamy love scenes, intrigue and espionage, and is peopled with characters
that will long be remembered after a reader finishes the book. Brianna is an
amazingly strong heroine and easily adapts to her new life. Char is sex
personified, and being an alien only makes him all the more hot! One particular
character, Charís cousin Ban, is especially intriguing and this reviewer hopes
to see his story in a future book. Readers of the Erotica and Futuristic genres
will love this story, and will find themselves impatiently awaiting the next
book by this very prolific author. A definite donít miss!
Kari. A Romance Review
I loved this story and
could not put it down. I was drawn in and now I canít wait for the next
installment. Very well written and fasted paced I would highly recommend this
Celestrial Passions: Brianna you wonít be disappointed. The characters are
strong and you come to care for them and about them. This is one of the best
stories Iíve read this year.
Judy Mays creates not only two fantastic main
characters, but also several great secondary characters who will come to be
favorites as well. There are small elements of romance between other characters
and some set up the events to come in the next book of this series. My favorite
secondary characters are Ban -- can you say HOT? -- and the intriguing Gattan
race, which will be featured in SHEALA, Celestial Passions Book 2.
The author also creates a villain you will love to hate, and Bakomís despicable
and horrific experiments, along with his vile personality, will cause readers to
look forward to his downfall and destruction.
BRIANNA is a book you do not want to miss. Full of explosive eroticism, romance,
adventure, danger around every corner, and characters that will charm and
intrigue, this book will capture your imagination and leave you wondering what
will happen next. The only complaint that I have is that the next book, SHEALA,
wonít be out until next year. Judy Mays is definitely an author to watch for, if
only she could give us more of her outstanding writing sooner and more often.
For readers who donít like sci-fi, this is one book you will just have to try;
it will definitely change your mind.
