Betrayed
ET Book One
by Joy Spraycar
Genre: YA SciFi
 
 
 
If Valcor Sentorum can bring back more girls than his predecessor, General Labaam, he’ll have set himself up to become the next President of Dactilt. That’ll put an end to those meddling Ventician women for good! Of course, only if no one finds out where he’s been or what he’s found. But once he lands on Earth, someone changes all his aspirations.
 

 

Loreen Baccarin would give anything to go back and undo the last year and a half. Never trust a man, especially not a Dactiltian! Now she’s been banished from Venticia until she can redeem herself, spending the last eight months stuck on Earth and waiting for a Dactiltian ship to land. When one does, all the hatred she’d been holding inside boils to the surface, and she’s determined to unleash it on the poor sap who’s arrived outside of town. 
But when she reaches the ship, she comes face to face with the person she thought she’d never see again…
Her husband!
 
 
 

Valcor slid his left foot completely free of its bindings. She should have used separate ropes. “I’m in the army. I think I know when we’re at war.”

“But you didn’t…we didn’t…Ahhh…” She pushed her fingers into that luscious hair, and he longed to do the same.

“To tell the truth, I was injured pretty badly. I don’t remember the war myself.”

“What?” She turned, and an unreadable expression crossed her face. “So how do you know what happened?”

“Let’s just say that they brought me up to speed when I got better.”

“Interesting.” She took another step forward.

He needed her to come closer.

“So out there in the woods, why did you chase me?”

“Because…” He raised one eyebrow. “Come closer and let me show you.”

She pushed the blaster against his chest. “Is this close enough?”

He smiled. “Yes, it is!”

 

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Betrayed?

Valcor is a hardened Army General. His planet Dactilt has had an ongoing battle with a rival planet, Venticia, where Lorraine is from. Valcor believes that his planet has just finished another war with Venticia, but he was badly injured and doesn't remember it. 

 

Lorraine met Valcor when she was sent to Dactilt as a spy. They fell in love and secretly married. Valcor went to the Dactilt Council to show proof that Dactiltian men and Ventician women belonged together, but then the army showed up and captured Lorraine. After days of torure, she managed to escape and return to Venticia, where she was banished to one of Earth's backwater towns awaiting a Dactiltian ship to appear. She believe Valcor turned her in, and she hated him and Dactilt, and is looking forward to letting whatever man shows up feel her wrath.


Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?

I usually have one character who speaks to me to begin with, and it's usually the man. I like the men. The women are a little tougher for me to write. But I do have several books that began with the women. Tawny's Ghost and Changing of the Glad. 
 

How did you come up with the concept and characters for the book?

I usually dream about my characters and their story. 

 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

This book was more difficult than most because it was a collaboration. But seeing the kids imaginations at work was really cool. Making them stick to a writing schedule was the hard part. But we enjoyed each others company.

 

 

 
Joy Spraycar lives in Utah at the base of the Rocky Mountains. She has always had a vivid imagination and told stories, not always to the amusement of those around her. Since she was young, she enjoyed bringing stories to life and sharing them with others. 
 

 

However, her decided career lead her down many paths before finally setting her back where she began, putting pen to paper.
 
She enjoys writing about life the way she wishes it was, men who aren't afraid to show their feelings (What girl doesn't want that?) and romance in many different settings. She also loves her characters to have adventures, and face peril. 
 
She hopes that you enjoy her Young Adult and New Adult Romances.
