This request comes (hur) from Cate. And I cannot even. No, really. Absolutely no evens can be, due to this request, which… oh, please, just read it:
I have a dozen things I should be doing, so NATURALLY my brain has decided to obsess about a category romance that I read in (I think) the mid-90s. It was from one of the “hot” lines, so maybe Silhouette Desire or Harlequin Temptation? I think the spine and edge-bits of the front cover were red.
The hero was an alien.
Possibly a shape-shifting giant cat.
The one part I really really remember (and you cannot imagine how horrified I am at myself. SELF, REALLY: what is wrong with you?) is that they had sex on the balcony outside and afterwards she realized his Special Man Juices were glittery.
No, really. There was glittery spunk in this book.
Please help me identify the source of GlitterJism Alien Cat-man so I can stop googling combinations of those words.
Cate emailed me a bit more information as well:
God, I hope someone else remembers this book. For one thing, googling variations of “sparkling jizz cat alien” is bringing me to some bad, bad places on the internet.
Additional details: I remember she had his sparkle!jizz on her fingers when she noticed it sparkled. (I can't remember where he was at that moment, but I *think* he'd gone back to the stars/his planet/his ship.)
Also a biggish deal was made out of the balcony sex because it was under the night sky and he came from Up There Somewhere.
If this is a Harlequin, I will be VERY surprised. And if it is, and it's a continuity, I MUST READ IT IMMEDIATELY. Do you recognize this book?
