Going back to my SFR , which is now an R&R, sent it back in today 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.
We’ve been through Tom’s near fatal illness, his recovery (but no spoilers about how that was accomplished)….(did teasers about their romantic encounter LOL)…
Now on to their next challenge in the desperate journey across Zulaire – the Chikeeri River. Last week Andi was knocked overboard and now she’s in the hands of the rebels.The ringleader is speaking (had to delete his name to avoid spoilers).
“You outworlders never give up, do you?”
Jerking herself away from him, Andi said, “Don’t touch me, you bastard.”
“Defiant to the end.” Examining his knife, (the leader) ran a careful finger along the edge, his smile revealing yellowed teeth. “Maybe the offering of your blood will be pleasing to these fields, improve the harvest next year – what do you think?”
“I think you’re insane – go to hell.”
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….
