I’m posting excerpts from Baswin, the fifth book in my Sci-Fi Romance series, Taxyon Space. The story begins on Earth iabout a hundred years in the future when we have colonies on the Moon and Mars, smaller bases in the asteroids, and scientific stations on Europa and Titan.
Holly Moon is the female protagonist with a psychic talent. She is helping the local detective by scrying for a missing girl.
You can read last week’s snippet at https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2021/05/see-where-holly-moon-lives-snippet-for.html
After describing the location of the girl’s body, Holly meditates about her home with her sister, Rosie.
Holly picked up her scrying mirror, intending to restore it to the shelf.
Her senses pricked. A premonition?
She glanced at the mirror.
Colors swirled over the reflective surface and a face appeared. A strange face with chiseled features and an extraordinary sweep of vibrant orange hair curling like a wave over the top of his partly shaved head. A male face, she guessed, despite his unearthly appearance. His eyelids were closed and his expression as calm as if he were asleep. As she watched, his eyes flicked open to reveal startling irises of a golden amber hue. His pupils widened and he smiled at her.
Ten lines and I suspect you’d like a few more:
Who was he? Could he really see her or was he looking at something else?
Her sister’s strident call broke into her focused mind. She blinked and the strange vision faded from the mirror.
Rosie burst into the room, waving a beige envelope. Her face glowed with excitement as she cried, “Holly, this letter just arrived. It’s from the Ministry for International Affairs.”
Enclosing the mirror in its case, Holly shook her head in disbelief. “Why on earth would the Foreign Ministry send us a letter?”
“I know. Isn’t it weird? But weird is what we do.” Rosie giggled. “Anyway, the letter’s from the Regional Minister, Mr. Braithwaite.”
Can a psychic woman from Earth find a home among the alien Warrish?

The sisters are eager to contribute to humanity’s advance into space. But will they succeed? They must pass a series of rigorous tests and adapt to the alien neuro-implants.
Holly meets Baswin on an island in the Pacific Ocean, but their destiny lies farther away. What obstacles will block their journey to a happy reunion of the Flaming Comets Triad?
