Going back to my SFR , which – STATUS CHANGE – is now an R&R, working on the comments with fingers crossed!
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, 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.
In the excerpt three weeks ago Tom was taken suddenly ill. Last week Tom and Andi discussed his near fatal illness. He’s recovering…the conversation continues (had to skip ahead due to spoilers so this is NOT directly after last week’s excerpt)…:
Aching to touch him, Andi settled for tracing the dagger and comet tattoo on his bicep with her forefinger. “Special Forces?”
“Yes – I have a couple in other, more interesting places.”
“I know, I’ve seen them,” she said, blushing, not meeting his eyes. “Mitch and the monks needed my help when you were so sick.”
“I’m not sick now.”
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….
