Parker Presents: Allie Ritch

Happy Thursday, my little monkeys! I am excited to turn my blog over to the lovely Allie Ritch today, and let me tell you...she's brought the goods! 

Free Your Mind

The 1999 movie The Matrix was about a virtual reality that everybody believed was real. Those freed from the Matrix could bend certain rules and break others within that artificial reality. Well, let me tell you, when it comes to writing sci-fi romance, “there is no spoon.”

That’s what I adore most about this genre. I get to let my imagination go nuts (Me? Crazy? Nah.). I get to have fun, and that’s exactly what I’ve done throughout my whole Alien Sex Ed series. I’ve got a woman with naturally purple hair, a fellow with a vibrating penis, and a four-armed man who turns red and sports bonus equipment. Now, with the release of the third book, Alien Sex 103, by Liquid Silver Books, I get to bend reality even more.

In Alien Sex 103, Varion belongs to a shape-shifting race and can change his superficial features (skin, hair, and eye color, as well as distribution of muscle and fat) at will. This guy literally encompasses all the races we think of here on planet Earth: black, white, olive-skinned, etc. Talk about someone whose looks don’t define him.

Then there’s Benni. She’s a Flexian, a race of natural contortionists. Benni can bend like a pretzel, and she puts on quite a show at the Trilanta Fairgrounds, where she does trick riding on a six-legged equinoid. Want to know the hardest part about writing Benni? Describing the knots she ties herself into without getting dizzy!

Zeo is Nimanian, so his relationship plan is broken down to the most primitive tactic: find his mate and take her for his own. 

That’s easier said than done when he discovers the female he wants is a shy, virgin New Earthling named Pixie, who is fresh out of college and hasn’t a clue how to handle him.

In case it’s not obvious, I pack a lot of diversity into this series, not only in the alien races, but in the characters’ personalities. The ages of the characters in these books range from twenty-one to forty-one, and they come in all different shapes and sizes. They include people who are innocent, jaded, easygoing, uptight, and every other description you can think of.

And the mixing and matching is so much fun! Just like I paired a superficial frat-boy type with a mature, spiritual woman in Alien Sex 102, I throw together Zeo with Pixie in Alien Sex 103. Here Zeo has all this intensity and fearlessness, while Pixie is a nervous wreck, but determined not to be such a wimp. I like to see how the characters work out their differences.

There is no spoon, so to speak, in my Alien Sex Ed series. Or maybe I should mention that there are no zippers :-).


Blurb for Alien Sex 103:

Corporate spy by day and party boy by night, Varion thinks he has it all when he hooks up with fellow Sex Ed student, Benni. As a Flexian, Benni is a natural contortionist, able to get into sexual positions he has always fantasized about. She loves the way his race can shift their features and skin tone to look like other people. It’s all passion and good times until Varion starts to wonder if Benni only wants him because he can look like different men. And when Benni discovers Varion’s corporate espionage may destroy her job, she questions his motives in pursuing her. Is their relationship real or just a game that’s turned all too serious?

Used to being the shy young virgin, Pixie is shocked when Zeo, the fierce Nimanian student in her Sex Ed class, takes an interest in her. Step by step, Zeo awakens her sexuality and teaches her the joys of being a woman. He wants to mate with her in the tradition of his people, but Nimanian sex can be rough. Can Zeo be gentle enough for the woman he loves? Does Pixie have enough strength to match him?

Excerpt from Alien Sex 103 (for mature audiences only):

Drawing on the patience of the hunter, Zeo remained quiet and still while Pixie closed the distance. Her fear smelled like freshly chipped ice, but the spicy aroma of her arousal lay just beneath it. The first was unnatural as far as he was concerned—a result of insecurity and whatever wariness her New Earthling culture must have instilled in her. The latter scent, however, was all her.

Her animal, her most basic self, called to him with the imperative to mate. Whether she acknowledged that pull or not, he knew they were meant to join together. He’d known it from the first moment he’d seen her.

But first he needed to help her claim her sexuality. Once she did, her confidence would grow, and she’d be able to stand up to the females of his community. He hoped.

She slipped her soft hand into his, and Zeo once again marveled at the smoothness of her feminine skin. It made him want to rub his body all over it until his scent filled her every pore. Pulling her closer, he buried his nose in her hair before setting his hands on her slim hips. He turned her to face the mirror he’d discovered on her closet door.

“Undress for me.”

Beneath his hands, her body went stiff. “What?”

“Undress,” he repeated. “I would know your body.”

Her gaze rose to meet his in the mirror, and he could see the debate raging in her mind. Hoping his calmness would ease her, Zeo remained utterly still while she made her decision. His heart leapt for joy, as did his eager cock, when she unsealed the front of her blouse. When her shaking hands reached the hem, though, she refused to let the fabric part. He could see her knuckles had turned white.

Undeterred, he grunted. “Open.”

“I can’t.”

He tilted his head at her, trying to understand her difficulty. “Are you ashamed?”

Many of the other races seemed to enforce modesty with shame. He didn’t want Pixie to feel that way. Ever.

“A little,” she answered, and he was pleased that she was honest with him. “I’ve never been naked in front of anyone before.”

Zeo kissed her nape in encouragement. “Clothes are for warmth and to protect soft skin. Do not hide behind them. I will keep you warm and safe.” Deliberately, he pressed his hips closer so she could feel his rampant erection against her backside. “Feel how much I want this.”

With her spooned so closely, he caught the sensual shiver that ran through her. Drawing an audible breath, she finally loosened her grip and let her blouse fall open. Zeo didn’t break eye contact as he stepped back enough to slip the material off her shoulders and onto the floor.

He was unsurprised when she kicked off her sandals and undid her pants next instead of fully baring her breasts. It didn’t matter. He could wait. She would show him everything before they were through.

Stepping free of her clothes, she stood before him in white cotton panties and bra—a virginal color for New Earthlings, if he wasn’t mistaken. The lily-white undergarments contrasted nicely with her pink skin.

“All of it.” He was startled to hear his voice had lowered another octave.

Somehow, this skittish young female spoke to his most primitive needs. She spurred his desire more than anyone before her. He kept himself in check, but he didn’t try to hide his hunger. She needed to learn how to match his passion.

Still watching her in the mirror, Zeo saw her close her eyes as she popped open her bra and shrugged it off. He only got the briefest glimpse of her pert nipples before she covered them with one arm and used her free hand to shuck her panties. His nostrils flared as her intimate scent intensified. Although he willed her to look at him, her eyelids remained firmly shut after she straightened.

Gripping her wrists, he watched Pixie’s throat convulse when he forced her arms to her sides. For a second, he froze, unable to believe the beauty of her.

Her creamy breasts were firm handfuls studded with pretty pink buds, and her hips and tummy were gently rounded in all the right places. The furry thatch between her legs was a full two shades darker than the halo of blonde tresses on her head, but her curls glimmered with gold where her juices coated them. All that was missing was the pale blue of her eyes.

“Still hiding?” he asked.

With obvious effort, she pried her lids open to look at him. He hadn’t thought it possible, but her body flushed an even rosier hue.

“Perfect.” It was the only compliment worthy of her.

Thanks so much for inviting me to your site, Parker. And thank you for letting this crazy writer ramble about her naughty aliens :-)

Thank you Allie! You, and your naughty aliens, are welcome here anytime! :-)


  1. Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Parker. I just finished reading One Night Stand, and boy was Joe a sexy alpha male. Joe and Amanda sort of face the same dilemma as Varion and Benni. They start with a casual relationship that quickly develops into so much more. I like seeing sexy characters who don't know what hit them when they fall in love. They think they're in control and just having fun and then wham! Cupid's arrow strikes.

    1. Thank you so much for being here! I'm so happy you liked One Night Stand. I'm with you - I love when the characters lives get turned upside down when they realize they are in love. :)

  2. What a wonderful excerpt, Allie! Wow- I have to admit this is not really my genre, but you opened my eyes when I read this. I have to read this book now!! Loved it! Congrats on all your success- richly deserved.

    1. Wow, what a compliment. Thank you, Rosanna. I'm so glad you enjoyed the excerpt.

      Like most of the genres today, sci-fi romance is constantly changing, expanding, and merging with other genres. It's not all ray guns and alien tentacles--the image a lot of readers have of this category. There's futuristic, time travel, alternate worlds, apocalyptic, space opera, and so much more. Certainly anyone who likes paranormal or fantasy romance will like at least one subgenre or style of sci-fi romance. I'm thrilled to see new readers giving SFR a chance.
