Still sharing my SFR , no news as yet on the R&R, but fingers crossed! (And thanks for all the encouraging words – much appreciated!)
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.
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)…
If you were here last week you know Andi was in imminent danger of death at the hands of the rebels and Tom had just arrived to try to save her but so far it isn’t going well…as the excerpt opens, the rebel leader (whose actual name is a spoiler) is heading for his vehicle, using Andi as a human shield.
Andi braced for action. The minute he started to open the door, she jerked backwards, taking (the rebel leader) unaware, knocking him off balance, forcing him to let go of her to save himself from falling. Tumbling to the hard packed dirt, she scrabbled to put distance between them.
Grabbing her ankle, (the leader) tried to drag her back. Rolling, she kicked at his face with her other foot, taking great satisfaction in the impact as she landed a glancing blow, enough to dislodge his clawlike grasp.
Tom launched himself at (the rebel leader).
I LOVE and appreciate your comments….
