Some books aren't "born" easily, and this would for sure be one of them. Upload problems, galore! But, deep breath, here we are, finally live.
Detained by the Alien Enforcer is book 3 in the Cosmic SWAT series, but they can be read in any order. You may have a better reading experience if you read them in order. Some readers have flipped back and forth and said they understood everything just fine.
As with all of my books, I don't necessarily try to touch on "real" life issues, but it seems to always come out that way. :) I think it's one of the things you all like best about my stories, based on your feedback, so I don't beat myself up about it as much as I used to. I let the story flow, and don't fight it. Persephone's character came to me after something I watched on the news. Actually, a couple somethings I saw on the news. She just popped into my head, and I ran with her. She has beautifully unique skin and a tough past, two things she struggled with growing up. But, of course, it all works out in the end. :)
X-n is a little more turned inward than the other Enforcers so far. He's the quiet, thinks-too-much type, but it suited him. You'll see more of X-n in the fourth and final book, as well.
Don't worry! It may feel like this story line has been wrapped up, but there's more to keep you invested in the next story. Who knows, there may be a 5th book, too. We will just have to see how it goes. ;)
