Welcome to Novo: Your new home in Space

For Ariana Skyee, Planet Novo was everything it promised to be until the authorities introduced "The Calling" as their response to repopulation. Now, all seventeen-year-olds are to participate in this Bachelor-style pageant to find their perfect match, marry, and have children.

But that's not Ariana's only concern. Thanks to the government-sanctioned memory erase, Ariana has no recollection of Zane, the mystery boy who haunts her dreams. Things are further complicated when the pageant commences and her feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify. Together, they start to realize not everything about their new home is as it seems.

Entangled in a dangerous web of deceit, Ariana sets out to identify the truth. Conflicted over warnings that Cal isn’t trustworthy and alarmed at the government's increasing interest in her, she doesn’t know where to turn. But her search for the truth comes at a high personal price. When her world implodes, discovering the past shapes her future with devastating consequences.

SAMPLE FROM LOVESTRUCK:

Breathing out a longed-for sigh of relief, I watch her spin around and make a noisy exit. Ben bursts out laughing, his body heaving as he convulses. "It's worth being your friend purely for the sheer entertainment value!" He grins.

"Glad that the abuse and harassment I have to withstand on a daily basis brings you so much joy." I step forward, securing the straps of my backpack across my shoulders.

"It does!" he shrieks, walking in step beside me.

"Hopefully, that's one less admirer-slash-stalker I have to deal with." Dragging my fingers through my messy blond hair, I say a silent prayer that Madison has finally gotten the message.

"Oh right, because stalking is only okay provided you're the one that's doing it?" he teases.

"I engage in subtle stalking. That's entirely different and perfectly socially acceptable." Not that I consider my activity regarding Ariana constitutes 'stalking' in the real sense of the word. Being in awe of such a perfect specimen, and seeking out every opportunity to study and admire her, is a God-given right in my view. Anything less would be sacrilegious. And there's no harm provided she doesn't know that I'm doing it. I'm a model of discretion, and excusing the odd lapse--like today--she is blissfully ignorant of my ardent longing for her.


Not that I'm happy about the 'blissfully ignorant' part; I'd much rather she was aware of my unrequited love, but she consistently refuses to give me the time of day. Sighing loudly in exasperation, I realize that the only person hurting in all this is me.
"Man, you have it bad," Ben says, startling me from my obsessive inner monologue.

"Why is it that the one girl I so desperately want is totally oblivious to me?" I glance sideways at him.

"Maybe you should tone down that infamous 'Cal Remus' charm? Ariana strikes me as the type of girl who is attracted to authenticity," he muses, scrubbing a hand over his chin.

"And tell me how I can achieve that when she won't even say 'hi' to me?" I pin him with a look. 

"Less teasing," he suggests. 

"I can't change my whole personality for her; she has to accept me as I am." That speaks to the core of my need. I've had reason enough to think long and hard on the importance of staying true to myself. I was ten years old when Mom died; only a little kid, but I can still remember how hard she tried to please my dad, and how much of herself she had to sacrifice in order to do that. I've made many promises to myself--as I've struggled to grow up without her in my life--and the main commitment I've stuck resolutely to, is to always be the person I am, and to not compromise on that for anyone, ever. 

"I get that," Ben says quietly. We've a tight friendship, as close as brothers, and I've confided everything in him over the years, as he has with me. Above anyone else, Ben knows me as well as I know myself. He understands that I'm loath to change for any girl, even one as special as Ariana.

"Maybe you should give one of the others a chance? You're so fixated on Ariana that I don't think you see the potential in some of the other girls who want to date you." We come to a stop outside Ben's house.

Perhaps he's right, maybe I am biased, but I'm convinced that she's the one for me. Although even I sometimes worry that the reality won't live up to the dream. I pitch that thought from my head the second I feel it taking root, refusing to allow it to infect the strength of the feelings I have for her.

The easy option would be to date one of the many girls who follow me around campus, willing to oblige my every whim. But all they see is 'the face.' I'm considered 'lucky' to have inherited my father's good looks, but it's more of a curse than a blessing. Most of the girls who crush on me are stuck on how I look and don't give a damn about getting to know the 'real me.' There was a time when it didn't matter, and I was happy to take advantage, but I have changed, and now I want more.
