At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate. If he fails, he risks being alone on Earth for the rest of his life.

Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for another woman who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. When her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, Carrie decides one night of passion is harmless since there’s no commitment after the night is over.

Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date even begins, Frey and Carrie end up closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey needs to convince Carrie her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.

This was a delightful solid 5 Cups for me.  Writing is exciting and new, not to mention sizzling hot. 
Frey Berger is actually traveling where no Ginnun has ever traveled before.  No not Earth, he is already here.  He is traveling into the world of feelings and emotions.  He wants to experience sensual sex and a mate that will love him for the rest of his life.  On his planet, emotions are never shown or felt.  Frey has always felt different, like he never belonged.  He wants to be loved and to love back.  After his intended mate marries his best friend, he does something no one on his planet would ever expect.  He decides to stay on Earth indefinitely and find a human mate.
Carrie was crushed the moment her high school sweetheart left her.  Crushed again, when he remarried and then once more when they had a baby together.  A baby she would never be able to have.  After her best friend, Tamara, talks her into using Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand dating services, all she can do is second guess herself.  Her confidence is beyond low.  Then in walks a sex god, maybe things are looking up.
Their single night of courtship is a rocky one.  One problem or mishap after another, but you can tell that they have something amazing together.  Frey knows that Carrie is the woman for him, now he needs to help her believe that.  After a night of passion, Carrie moves on thinking Frey is committed for only one night.  Now he is in a race to change her mind and heal her heart ache.  He needs to convince her to accept a life with him as his mate.
These two lovers were wonderful.  You could almost feel Frey and Carrie’s insecurities.  Ms. Subject did a great job conveying their emotions and pulling me into their heads.  The writing was tight and the flow was smooth.  Celestial Seduction is a great addition to the series.  I like that most every genre is covered with this series.  Decadent Publishing hit a home run when they thought of 1NS.
Always nagging at the back of my mind while reading this book is…does her best friend have a story?  I am going to have to do a massive search to find out, because it sure sounds like it would be a different take on the normal “happily ever after” that the series is known for.
Celestial Seduction is a sensual sci-fi addition to the 1NS series.  This story is refreshing and shouldn’t be missed.  There is nothing like a hot alien finding his intended mate here on Earth.  So grab this quick read, you won’t be sorry.  I sure wasn’t!

Sad thing is I read and reviewed that one too. I didn't put two and two together. That was also a wonderful story. Thanks for clearing that up. Now I'm going to go back and enjoy it again, to see if I can connect them.
