Exclusive Excerpt

Fueled by instinct rather than rational thought, I shove Chewy into Adeline’s arms. “Take Chewy with you and keep him safe.” I don’t miss a beat before I rush toward the Code Red situation.

Behind me I can hear Chewy barking his disagreement over my plan, but I don’t have time to worry about him or what I’m going to do next. All I know is Kai’s in trouble, and if I can help, I will.

He may be a sexy grump, but I want him to be my sexy grump. I flatter myself that I have a special talent for making him smile and laugh. I want more of that. And I think he needs someone like me who can help him enjoy life more and have fun.

With that conviction guiding me, I’m on a mission to save my alien boo-to-be. However, I’ve only made it halfway to Kai when I screech to a halt. I almost forgot something absolutely critical. I shoot a glance down my chest to be sure. Phew! I’m not wearing a red shirt today. Blue for the win, baby! I may be a bit impetuous, but I’m no fool. Star Trek has taught me many lessons to live by.

Now that everything’s all good, I keep going. When I reach Kai I’m panting—running is stupid—and I find him standing as motionless as a statue, a phaser-like device in his grip. The front of his shirt is covered in a gross-looking gooey, gelatinous substance.

“Kai! Are you okay? Blink if you can hear me.”

He doesn’t move or even react to my presence. A quick glance around confirms the rest of the security team are in the exact same predicament and covered in the same strange-looking goop.

I reach out and feel for a pulse at Kai’s throat, instantly reassured when I’m certain he’s at least still alive. But I notice something that makes me gasp. Ignoring the nasty goo, I stick my ear closer to his chest, listening intently. Holy shit. I’m not dreaming. “You have two freaking hearts,” I whisper. “This is totally destiny. You’re practically a motherfucking Timelord. But with tentacles instead of a TARDIS. Swoon.”

Sadly, he doesn’t react. I give his immobile arm a gentle pat. “Don’t worry, babe. I’ve got you covered, but we are soooo talking about this later.” Gingerly, I pry the phaser thingy from his hand. Best to have something I can use to defend myself and my future lover—I’m totally going to make his sexy ass mine—from danger.

I turn the device around in my hand. “This sure doesn’t look like a sonic screwdriver, which would be damn handy right about now. Let’s hope it works like a phaser from Star Trek,” I mutter.


it's not unusual to be loved by an alien coverTentacular Tales Series, Book 1

A sexy alien living incognito on Earth meets a sci-fi loving nerd who wants to rock his universe. What could possibly go wrong? Besides the unexpected tentacles and the accidental Mating Courtship Ritual, that is….


As a bona fide sci-fi nerd and total X-phile—the truth is out there—I’ve always believed in aliens. Duh. But I never thought I’d actually find them on Earth–let alone right here in Las Vegas! Now I’ve stumbled onto a big freakin’ secret and found my very own hot AF alien. I’m head over heels, but he’s being a total grump and holding back. How do I make him realize a geeky sunshine guy like me is just what he needs in his life? Did I mention he also has tentacles?!?! #HolyHentaiFantasyBatman #SwoonworthyAlien #SignMeUpSugar #MakeItSo #VivaLasVegas


The last thing I need in my life is a chatterbox twink who’s determined to woo me and could expose the secret existence of aliens on Earth to all humankind. Everything about him annoys me, including his stupidly attractive halo of golden curls and his bright green ‘come hither’ eyes. To make matters worse, he’s been recruited to work for the alien Alliance on Earth, and I’m assigned to keep him out of trouble. I don’t care how attractive he is. I don’t date humans! Except, my tentacles may have accidentally started the Mating Courtship Ritual with him…

It’s Not Unusual to be Loved by an Alien (Tentacular Tales #1) is an (102,000 words) M/M sci-fi rom com featuring an adorkable twink with unexpected secrets and a slight obsession with extraterrestrials, the reluctant alien he wants to make his boo, tentacles with a mind of their own, zany extraterrestrial shenanigans in Sin City, and enough humor to fill an entire spaceship. This is the first book in the series. There is no cheating, and this book ends with a HFN. Never fear, the series guarantees readers an HEA by the end!


Chloe Archer writes M/M sci-fi and paranormal rom coms with laugh-out-loud humor because she’s all about bringing the funny-sexy back. Oh, yeah!

She currently calls Minnesota home but has lived abroad in places like Montreal, Edinburgh, and Tokyo. She’s hoping to relocate to Scotland permanently in the next few years if the stars align.

Chloe is a fur mama to two adorable Yorkies, Jasper and Teddy, and she loves them in a crazy dog mama kind of way. When she isn’t busy writing, she enjoys visiting friends and family, traveling, reading, binge-watching movies and TV shows, and practicing her karaoke skills. She does a mean cover of Pat Benatar and Cher, or so she’s been told.
