You can read last week’s snippet at https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2020/01/not-drill-snippet-from-alarik-scifirom.html
I have switched to the heroine’s pov and her first sight of the hero. She is sitting at the rear of the shuttle, which is preparing to lift off and fly to the space ferry. There is an empty seat beside her.
Alarik, aka wealthy Rick Kent, is running late after traveling across Mars. Of course, the shuttle has to stop for such an important passenger.
[Please excuse my misuse of punctuation to fit 8-10 sentences.]
A second later, the door swung open and a man jumped into the cabin; his spacesuit had a distinctive gold sheen.
The engines slowed. The co-pilot swiveled toward the newcomer and called a question; his words were drowned by the rumble of the drive.
“Sorry, I’m late,” the man cried, holding his com for the co-pilot to read his ID.
Compressing his brows, the co-pilot scanned the com and nodded. He jerked his thumb at the seats.
“Bountiful thanks, Sir,” an athletic young man with a cheerful expression on his narrow face and light brown locks flopping over his forehead, the new passenger strode along the aisle, glancing right and left in search of an empty seat.
Phoebe watched him approach, admiring his confident stance and handsome, tanned face,.
He halted by her, asking, “Gentle Lady, will you permit me to sit here?”
His sincere tone and warm smile won her instant agreement. Mirroring his smile, she moved into the window seat and murmured, “Please do.”
Two people fleeing different planets discover a shared destiny.
When an alien spacecraft crashes on Mars, the repercussions sweep throughout the solar system and endanger the fragile new alliance with the Warrish mermen.
