The Star of the Fleet was an opportunity to work some magic between two older people (though by older, I mean not in their twenties and thirties.
I do love this couple and in my mind, their story goes a lot further... One day I may sit down and write out what become of Kera and Gustav. But not yet.
Officially this is the 4th story of the series and the second novella in the Warriors of the Elector series.
She reached into a pocket of her suit and pulled out a micro-disk. Leaning forward, she placed it on his desk. “My report is complete. I had five weeks of nothing to do.” She raised her chin and looked at him. “Sir.”
Star of the Fleet:
When betrayal and loyalty collide, can love overcome all obstacles?
Kera Aarens is strong, sexy, and focused on her new role as commander of security on Aenna, but she’s recovering from injuries she suffered at the hand of Crick Sur Banden, the leader of the Ru’Edan Rogues. Offered the job of protecting the hidden Admiralty base, this driven warrior is desperate to regain her balance.
Admiral Gustav Elphin is in charge of the base and was previously Kera’s commander aboard The Star of Ishtar, the scene of his greatest regret. He vividly remembers—and regrets—not fulfilling the promise of one night of passion with this amazing woman. Now Kera’s back in his life and he’d do just about anything to close the emotional chasm between them.
Facing a breach of station security, and multiple personal threats to each of them, Kera and Gustav must work together to neutralize the agent who’s hidden among the workers of the station.
Somewhere along the way, maybe, they will find a second chance at love.

Time to bring you some snippets from book 2 - Starfire. I was particularly pleased with the way the flight scenes came up, but I know you'll enjoy some fo the banter between these two
“Sit down and I’ll grab some forks and spoons.” His voice slid over her like silk.
She sat down and waited for him. She watched the way his body moved and felt her nipples tighten in response. She had to work hard to subdue the arousal that bubbled inside her.
Once back, he sat beside her, and every move he made heightened her awareness of him.
So here we are, the final Six Sentence Sunday of 2018. I thought I'd bring you Starfire... It's one of my faves because to be honest I just adore this couple. I hope you will too!
“Raven...I want what I can have with you.” She faltered, seeking the words to tell him that she wanted the emotional experience for the short while she knew this would last. An ache started somewhere in her chest. Couldn’t he see she was giving him everything she had in her? Her heart splintered, realizing he was going to leave her. You’re such a coward. Give in and you might find forever.
“No, Jemma. It isn’t enough for me.” He backed away and turned around, his face and eyes distant. “I’ll leave you to get dressed.” Then he left her naked and empty in the cold room.
Jemma and Raven find forever on the eve of war.
Jemma Cardnew is hard-nosed and determined. Her life consisted of growing up in an orphanage, only to be kidnapped and dumped at the academy without choice by those in charge of the Elector. She deems anyone telling her how to live her life to be high-handed. That includes Raven, the ship’s gorgeous engineer, no matter how much she feels emotionally drawn to him.
Raven Fraser has a multitude of problems: the power matrix of the Elector is leaving the ship unprotected and afloat in space while Crick Sur Banden taunts the Empire, leaving them on the verge of war. And the woman he dreams of is avoiding him, playing havoc with his concentration.
Thrust together under trying circumstances, the promise of explosive passion consumes them both as they attempt to save the Empire.
Content Warning: Space travel, violence, and evil aliens abound

Oh man! I'm so late this week!
Ready for your dose of Six Sentence Sunday? I've chosen another book in the Warriors of the Elector series for your interest!
Taking them in her hand, she noticed that they were holo-glasses, which would allow her to see the rest of the holographic information she would need to complete the test, the bike the only actualized form in the scenario. She slipped them over her eyes and saw an open road. Her grin widened, and she breathed in, stretching her chest and neck in excitement and pleasure. Oh, how I’ve missed this!
Her hands grasped the bike handles, which conformed to the shape of her grip and became solid. Jemma moved them back and forth, getting the feel of the bike within her bones, making a connection on a wholly sensual basis as it thrummed beneath her body. The pleasure of the open road once more, no longer cooped up...
