He helps his E.T. to call home…

Following a horrendous breakup with his two (and three) timing fiancee, Oregon naturalist Dr. Kent Xavier has sworn off women, all women. He heads out into the Deschutes wilderness to brood, alone, but his solitary trip turns into a midnight rescue mission for a damsel in distress.

Lured by the beauty of planet Earth, Povre disobeys strict orders to remain in camp in favor of a moonlight walk. A bad step on a slope of loose rocks lands her in the very predicament she’s supposed to avoid: contact with the dominant native lifeforms.

Forced together by mutual need, Kent and Povre soon find themselves on the run from alien-hunting government agents. Along the way these two scientists from very different worlds discover the most important element of all – love.

…but can he let her go?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

T.M Roy’s book about a truly odd couple (Oregon professor Kent Xavier and blue alien visiting Earth Povre) is a fun read with romance, adventure and humor. While the story may seem cliche (alien on Earth needs rescuing from the big bad government agency), T.M. makes it fresh and takes it in interesting directions. She has a nice turn of phrase and writes in an enjoyable style.

A wonderful mix of science-fiction and romance, and just the right touch of humor. This was a very enjoyable read. (T.M. Roy’s) skill with both dialogue and description pulled me into the story; it was very hard to put this book down. I definitely want more!!

I must first start this review in saying that science fiction is not a type of book I normally read. However, I was intrigued by the romance aspect, so I decided to try it! I really enjoyed the tale of their romance and how their story was woven. Very well developed and written.

About The Author


T.M. Roy has had many jobs and worn many hats over the years (including the pirate hat in the photo). By profession a technical writer and graphic artist, the recent economy has turned her to freelancing as a cover artist, pixel and print book designer, and editor. When she’s not doing that for someone else, she’s writing, reading, editing and illustrating her own work. She’s been drawing since her fat little fingers could hold a crayon. In 1996, she discovered that painting in pixels was just as fun as drawing or painting with traditional media–without the mess, smell, or expense. Many of the characters in her stories started off as a sketch or a doodle (she calls them the Pencil People).

In 2003, writing with the pen name Terran Moffat, her novel Discovery was a finalist in the 2003 EPIC Awards for Best Science Fiction Romance.

She lives in the Portland, OR, area with an opinionated Quaker parrot named Apple, who has his own blog and writes food haiku.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – T.M. Roy and ENT appreciate it.
