A snippet from the soon to be released Baby It’s Cold In Space multi-author book set. Included in that collection is the next Solar Flame stand-alone novella, Still Life.
Jody is a super-capable freedom fighting spy. Ewan is a sexy, nerd astrobiologist. Her mission will destroy his future… she must remain strong, on task, dispassionate, distant… and when that doesn’t work out…
“It’s okay,” Ewan kept his voice low and soothing, taking her face into his hands. “You’re gonna be fine.”
Her mouth formed a perfect “o” as she stared wide-eyed into his eyes. Perfect blue eyes surrounded by thick, tawny lashes.
The stillness enveloped them.
He felt her pulse quicken beneath his fingertips. It wasn’t until he felt her hands on his wrists that he realized it was because he was still holding her face, inches from his.
“You’re okay,” he felt his grin broaden. He couldn’t help it.
Her fingertips stroked the edges of his short beard. “You saved my life.” Her face was so close to his, he could taste the scent of her citrusy lip gloss.
