Six Sentence Sunday – SciFi WIP

This Sunday’s excerpt is from an SFR  WIP set in the same universe as my recently published 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, at her hosts’ party, he makes a fresh effort to persuade her...

“You won’t kidnap me?” She smiled up at him, “After all, you do have orders.”

“Not orders to kidnap civilians under the personal protec­tion of the Planetary High Lord.” The words were clipped, bitten off, his voice low and tense. “We sure as hell can’t dance and have a debate, agreed?”

The best partner I’ve ever danced with, effortless to follow, like we’re flying across the floor – why couldn’t this moment have lasted longer before reality broke in on us?

  1. My oh my, I think our Captain’s in for a “bumpy ride” *wink* with this independent heroine! Love the dramatic tension as well as the sexual chemistry running through this snippet!

  2. OMG. So fun! “You won’t kidnap me?” — LOVE that! I can’t wait to read what happens between these two!
