A TALE FROM THE AMBASADORA-VERSE: GREENSHIFT
Greenshift is a novel set in the Ambasadora-verse one month before Ambasadora begins.
DESCRIPTION: David Anlow, a fleet captain forced into early retirement and jaded by an ex-lover, now spends his lonely days shuttling around a group of scientists for hire.
Boston Maribu, Mari to her friends, is one of his passengers, a young botanist who is as beautiful as she is naïve and innocent. When Mari asks David to teach her about more than just piloting the Bard, nights on their ship heat up and their feelings for each other mature into a relationship neither expects. But a suspicious new client shows up with wicked plans for Mari, and the soldier inside David comes alive, ready to fight for the young woman who stole his heart.
"I'm not the flirting type," Sean mumbled.
Even after they kissed that time he hadn't made any advances toward her. And that was too bad because it was a good kiss.
She studied Sean's thin lips as she thought about it. As usual, dark blonde stubble encircled his mouth and edged up his tense jaw and down his chin to his neck. In fact, she had never seen him clean-shaven. David always shaved, kept himself well-groomed in general, even his t-shirt and fatigues were crisp, not like the rumpled worker's pants and faded blue t-shirt Sean wore.
Mari had been making comparisons between the two men since David walked on board a few weeks ago. Sean was the guy she used to want, but now all she thought about was David Anlow.
