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.
"That was a bad move," Sean said. "You're playing a risky game with a guy like David."
"What do you mean?" Mari asked, pretending she wasn't just thinking the same thing.
"You know exactly what I mean. Helping me to bed? This kind of behavior will backfire, especially using me to try and make him jealous. He can't stand me."
"I thought you couldn't stand him," Mari said.
"We have a mutual antipathy for one another."
"You're quite eloquent when you're drunk."
