L'Wren, hawk and the Doves: Srey Chanda and Dr Kelly Forest

Can a starship captain maintain the platonic 'mission protocol' with his first mate when they have to take on board two mysterious and beautiful alien empaths and deliver them safely to the peace talks on the gender-conflicted planet Ourania?

Will emotions boil over and physical needs conquer the reserve of duty?

Let's meet two of the characters from 'L'Wren, Hawk and the Doves', a 27th March 2015 release form Breathless Press to tease you -

Srey Chanda - hostage and pivotal in Ouranian the peace process:

"Why were you with your mother, Chanda? I thought all children of the Omiai were taken away at birth to be either Parangada or Naranari. How were you not given to them?" whispered Cytheria while Chanda scanned the camp.
"I am not the only one who was not given over at the end of the Omiai," said Chanda. "We know that some fathers have taken their daughters back with them, just as my mother and some of her sisters kept their sons. We are the generation who will make the peace last, the peace that you will bring. I have brothers in Sarkare's camp just as in the Parangada there are sisters who are kept secretly. The old order has had its day, and we will change it."
Cytheria nodded and smiled at this wise head on young shoulders.
Dr Kelly Forest - ship's surgeon on the starship Sulaco:
"Sick bay, Forest here. Where am I needed?" she asked. Her voice was calm, confident and warm, and belied an inner core of steel and an encyclopedic knowledge not just of human medicine but also a wide range of humanoid alien anatomy. There wasn't much that could rattle Dr. Forest.
"Incoming shuttle on autoreturn, doctor. Captain requests medical assistance in shuttle hangar for possible phaser injuries," said the chief.
"Acknowledged, chief. Shuttle occupants are?"
"Uncertain, doctor. We are anticipating that either one or both of the Turacoenan negotiators are onboard. We haven't been able to make contact."
"On my way. Forest out." She stabbed at the button and grabbed her medi-kit. She hurriedly scrolled through the display and selected T, then clicked on "Turacoena—physio and anatomy download." The device displayed a gray bar that quite swiftly swept to blue from left to right. It bleeped and displayed "100% download complete."
"Okay, that was too quick. So not much known about Turacoena then," mumbled the doctor to herself. "Guess I'll have to go with human until proved otherwise." She punched the door button and jogged along the corridor to the shuttle hangar.
