When Jagger Castillo sees Ellecia Lightmaiden trying to call lightning from a clear night sky, he knows she’s a perfect candidate to experience the Castillos’ new resort on Planet Vyzani. Stuck on Earth, Ellecia has never been able to find a man who sates her sexual appetite to generate the power she craves. Goaded into going on a date her boss has paid for, she relents once she learns Madame Evangeline has chosen four younger men for her. However, the method in which Ellecia must travel to Vyzani is terrifying. Can she trust science to send her through cyberspace without losing her body or reassembling it wrong? And if she does make it to her waiting men, will they be compatible and quench her need for incredible sex? Perhaps Madame Evangeline’s perceptiveness has sent Ellecia across a galaxy to love.
“If it wasn’t for you,” Alexandra began, “Erotic Tastes Lingerie and Apparel wouldn’t be what it is today. In the nine years you’ve worked for me, business has more than quadrupled. Your vision for damn-sexy lingerie and shoes boggles my mind, Ell. However, no matter how talented and imaginative you are, you’re still different.”
She shot her friend a sharp look. “Why are you bringing it up? You know I don’t like to talk about it.”
Alexandra held up one hand, her manicured nails poking over her fingertips. “Madame Evangeline knows about you.”
“What?” Shock flowed through Ellecia. She sat up straight. “How?”
“Don’t worry, it was by accident. Jagger Castillo runs the largest resort in the Caribbean where you took your vacation last year. Very late one night at the pool, he was waiting for his new man to arrive for a swim. Jagger saw you transform and watched how you tried to transport yourself through a lightning bolt you’d called from a clear, starry sky. He realized the potential you had in helping Madame Eve with the new branch of the Castillo Resorts and Hotels.”
“Oh, this is just wonderful,” Ellecia snapped and slapped the chair arm. “No one but you has ever been privy to my secret. Now everyone will know, and I’ll be labeled a freak.”
“Neither Jagger or Madame would ever do that. You know how strict 1Night Stand dating service is about confidentiality. In fact, you can help the Castillo Empire with a special endeavor, and in doing so, you’ll start a new line of stores for Erotic Tastes.”
“Oh?” Ellecia finished her champagne, her interest suddenly piqued, and placed the glass on the table.
An ember popped in the hearth as Alexandra sipped her wine, her eyes alight with triumph. “You’re capable of wielding lightning, and with such power, you’re a perfect candidate for traveling to the new Castillo base. Although the resort isn’t finished, the hotel is ready. Until now, only employees and volunteers have traveled there. You’ll be the first real 1Night Stand client to go, and in doing so, you’ll help me with setting up a new location for Erotic Tastes. However, my way of saying thank you for doing this is through my gift to you. You’ll meet four men who should be able to keep up with your sexual appetites.” A low chuckle escaped her. “And they’re all ten to twelve years younger than you.”
