The novel is still out on resubmission, might hear something by the end of October.
Tom and Andi and their companions have a few more twists and turns to navigate before the HEA….
Set in the same universe as my WRECK of the NEBULA DREAM. Andrianda (Andi) Markriss, a planetary representative for Loxton Galactic Trading, has been spending a lazy summer with her best friend in the highly exclusive summer compound of the planet Zulaire’s ruling nobility, networking. On a day when a number of strange and disturbing things have already happened, Captain Tom Deverane, Sectors Special Forces, unexpectedly shows up with a troop of soldiers and demands she leave with him. Immediately.
Andi doesn’t take this very well….in fact, she refuses to go. Later in the evening, all hell has broken loose, as the captain predicted.
Trying to avoid spoilers here, after certain “events”, she and the soldiers are on the run.
Finding a massive roadblock ahead of them, they’ve taken shelter in a rock formation, and are preparing for a last stand.
“Take charge here for a few minutes, ” Tom said to the sergeant. “I’ve got to talk to Andi.”
Andi pulled her hand from Tom’s. “I can fight - I want to be here on the line with you, not hiding in a rock crevice.”
She expected him to argue, had her own counterarguments ready.
He stood staring at her for a long minute, hands on his hips, saying nothing, face drawn.
