Excerpt Day- Love's Bright Star, A Futuristic Romance by Virginnia De Parte


In the near future genetically altered individuals live among the wider population, not always trusted, wanted or even accepted. Jill Corban, a nurse from a  g-altered family is  looking for ways to control her chameleon genes. A vacation in to visit her family teaches her these skills and a meeting with Dr. Michael Scott offers her a chance at the kind of love she’s given up hope of ever finding.
Their romance takes a dusty trip through the heartland of Australia, blending tales of the Dream Time with adventure. Is their attraction to each other strong enough to survive the challenges of prejudice, a time stopping rescue, and challenges to Michael’s research programme?

Can their desire survive these events and grow into love?      

Discover the beauty of the Red Desert and how the power of love can change a life, for Love’s Red Heart beats within us all.

She didn’t even nod in agreement. Her heart was thumping—was it excitement, or
fear, she wondered? Is he giving me instructions again? The thought crossed her mind
like an electric shock, as she realised that James must think they were being observed.
She stepped off the escalator, turned to the right and looked at him, ready to act
surprised if need be. She didn’t see him do anything, but once again the world stopped.
The escalator stopped moving, people stopped mid-stride, mid-speech, mid thought,
except for her and James.

“James!” she exclaimed “What a surprise. Well, a double surprise really,” waving her
arms around indication the frozen world around them. “How nice to see you,” she said
formally, not knowing whether to laugh or cry. He pecked her on the cheek and
murmuring a quick walk with me in her ear led her over to a nearby table at the edge of the Food Court area, weaving them both around the living, breathing, people statues, before gently guiding her down to a chair.
