A hunky geek and a determined genius! Feel the passion!

Tilly Graham is in love. A nightly radio show has her dreaming of Angus Bell. The sound of his voice and the amazing stories he tells make her feel like he is speaking just to her. Deep down, Tilly knows she and Angus would make the perfect couple. Now, the challenge will be to convince Angus of that—but, first she has to meet him!

Angus Bell, acknowledged college geek and sci-fi host on the campus radio station, knows he doesn’t stand a chance with most girls at the college he attends. The problem is he doesn’t want most girls—he wants only one and her name is Tilly Graham.

Unfortunately, he seriously doubts that a nerd like him would ever stand a chance of capturing the campus resident genius’ heart when she has all the jocks vying for her attention.

Tilly’s fear that she’ll never get a chance to show Angus how perfect they are together calls for desperate measures. With the help of her sorority sisters, Tilly plans out Operation Angus Bell in the hopes of seducing the man who has captured her heart. What she doesn’t know is that he is listening in and more than willing to do a little capturing of his own! Find out what happens when Tilly gets her man!

    A quick fyi – I don’t know if this is the proper place to comment on this, but neither link from the S.E.Smith newsletter (to join the Starry Nights book club) worked when I tried to reach the sign up site. The box that came up said ‘server DNS address could not be found’.

      Hi Geri,
      I don’t think they were expecting it to be such a hit! Someone forgot to increase the bandwidth. I don’t think they were expecting such a positive turnout! Here is the email I received. If you can email them, they can sign you up!
      Hi everyone,

      Just wanted to send a quick note that we’re having an issue with the site. It appears that it’s getting so much traffic that the site is going down at times and causing an error for some people.

      We’re working with the hosting company for a solution, but it might be best if we hold off on sending emails to your newsletter until the issue is fixed.
      I’ll keep everyone posted – if you’ve already sent out an email to your list and are hearing back people not able to to subscribe, forward their message to this email and we’ll get them taken care of. Email is starrynightsbookclub@gmail.com

    First, thank you for the short story. I loved read about Tilly and Angus. I have so much fun with them.
    Today I finished to re read Cosmos” Gateway and I wonder if you will write about Garret, Rico and the other clans’ chiefs?
    I love your books, thank you for bring so much fun to us.

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Daisy. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. Tilly and Angus are such a cute couple. Seeing how they meet made them even more real to me. As far as Garrett, Rico, and the others, yes, they will all have stories. Core and Avery will be next, followed by Derik and Runt, then I will be writing about Brock, Lan, Garrett, Rico, and the other clan chiefs. <3

      1. Maryann says:

        When are the next two books coming out. It’s the middle of October and I’m still waiting for them to be released. I’m so looking forward to reading runt and deriks story.

        1. admin says:

          The waiting is a PIA, isn’t it?! No release date yet but Susan is feeling a bit better and is writing away.
          Cheers Narelle

    Hi Sarah,

    Your books are good for de-stress! Funny and so alpha-males:strong-women, with funny moments thrown in.

    Finished with Sarafin Warriors!!

    Halfway through Alliance Books:1-6 ; Dragon Lords of Valdier and Lord of Kassis.

    Finishing with Cosmos’ Gateway soon. Wondering whether you have plans to write :
    * Lan+Natasha;
    * Brock+Helene;
    * Lal+Ava Raines;
    * Bullet+Maria;
    * Hendrik+Trudy.

    Hope you’d consider writing their stories 🙂

    * How about Rico and Garett?

    Looking forward to more of your books, hopefully you can consider more box-set offers.


    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Mag. Thank you so much for your post and questions. Yes, to all of the above and to the more boxed sets. I have a lot of work to do on the back end. It is hard to keep the squirrels contained so I can actually get things done. LOL.

      1. Mag says:

        Hi Sarah,
        Thank you for all these great stories. I love the stories or the Valdiers, Sarafin, Curizan, Alliance, Lords of Kassis, Cosmos Gateway & the Dragonlings. These few series are ones I have reread so many times I lost count and they never ceases to entertain me! I have just started on The 7 Kingdoms and waiting (impatiently, :D) for Adalard. Hopefully you’ll make your books available in Google Play cos that’s the only 1 available for me in this country. Jia-you!!

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          Hi Mag! All of my books will be on Google Play. <3

I would love more of the drangonings as well as cosmos family. Any idea of the next books? Again thank you so much. Your books make my day brighter.

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      I’m currently finishing up Jarmen’s Jane Doe which is part of the Lords of Kassis series. I’ll finish the last book in the girls from the Street series then I’ll be writing Jag’s story in The Alliance series.
