Captain Saker Hawkings and First Mate L'Wren James agree to keep the mission and passion separate, but with two beautiful alien empaths on board, it's not only planetary peace negotiations that are in danger of breaking down.
So, may I present to you the cover, the work of the excellent Kelly Martin, of L'Wren, Hawk and the Doves -
L'Wren James, green skinned alien, and Saker Hawkings know that there's no room on a starship for a captain and first mate to indulge their passion while on a dangerous peace mission.
The fragility of the cease-fire in the gender war on the divided planet Ourania threatens the stability of sub-space shipping lanes and the starship Sulaco's mission is to get the negotiating team there and deliver them safely back.
But when they take on board Anchises and Cytheria, two mysterious empath negotiators from the secretive world of Turaceona, they find their commitment to duty and to each other a struggle to maintain in the sexually heightened and emotionally charged atmosphere.
But Anchises' and Cytheria's struggle to keep their secret and the loss they cannot speak of hidden leaves Anchises dangerously injured and Cytheria missing in action. The ship's doctor can only save Anchises if he reveals the truth about the man he is and the woman who is Cytheria.
And can Hawk and L'Wren face up to the challenges of duty, passion and sexuality and still save not only their relationship but the peace process itself?
