Thrust into a dangerous world where she must rely on Tor’Arr to keep her safe Tarnee must decide if she’s prepared to give up her dreams to be with a man who can be anything she desires.
“Hottie at ten o’clock,” Angela said as I walked up to the waitress station.
The restaurant where I worked was already busy. Residents of the space station were stopping in for a meal on their way home from their shifts or others were looking for a bite to eat before heading to one of the entertainment venues.
I turned to look across the crowded expanse of the restaurant, amused by her description, to see a man sitting in my section looking back at me.
“Oh, space dust,” I hissed, as I whipped around.
The man was the same person I’d seen that afternoon as I’d walked my small cousin home from the education centre. He was a man who had stood apart from all the other people in the crowded promenade of the station. Our eyes had met, a fleeting glance causing my breath to catch in my throat, before his eyes had sought mine—silver eyes, a hot blatant stare that had sent my heart racing and my knees weakening. I’d felt trapped by that stare, held captive by it until my cousin had dragged me away.
“What? He’s gorgeous. You should be happy that he’s in your section. Maybe you’ll get lucky for once, Tarnee.”
“Yeah, right.” I wrapped a clean apron around my waist and tied it off.

“Will you take me home?” I asked because I had to. It was too important to me just to let it go. I’d spent every waking hour since my parents disappeared, working towards the day when I could search for them and I was so close to my goal.
This man may make me feel things I’d never felt for another man, and we might have some strange kind of connection, but I’d never forget my parents. I’d never forget that they were out there somewhere.
Frustration crossed his face as I looked at him.
“I can’t do that, Tarnee. Now, even more than before. We’re already leaving your galaxy.”
A crushing sense of disappointment almost overwhelmed me. I turned away from him to look out the window behind me, lost in what I felt, my gaze lost in the endless expanse of space.
I heard movement behind me, the soft rustle of fabric as he moved, along with footsteps on the plush carpet.
“Is it so terrible that you can’t go home? Is staying here with me such a hardship, Tarnee?”
His voice had been close, so close. I looked over my shoulder to find him standing right behind me, between the two chairs that sat opposite the built-in couch.
“You don’t understand,” I replied.
“Then help me understand. Tell me why it’s so important to you that you go home. Tell me why you won’t even give us a chance.”
