Hannah set down her glass of hard cider on the coffee table, steeling herself
as she shifted on her couch to face Teak. The security officer flashed her an
overly confident smile, his beefy face stretching tight. He isn’t that bad. A
little forceful and not that imaginative, but he’ll do.
“So, tomorrow you’re heading to The Odyssey.” His words were slow and
lazy as he stretched one arm behind her.
She wiped her sweaty palms on her shorts. It wasn’t like her to feel so
nervous. But, she knew, it was her damned heart’s fault. It was telling her
that this man wasn’t Liam, while her head was screaming that two years was
more than enough time to get over him.
Say something! Her brain commanded.
“Yeah, I hope it will be half as fun as being a commander—“
“It’s not like being a lieutenant commander is slumming it with us regular
crew members or anything,” he interrupted, grinning. “It’s a step down for
sure, but I’d scrub the floors if I got to join the crew on The Odyssey.”
She looked away. Why is this so awkward? Just act normal! “Uh, yeah.
Even though it’s a lower position, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
He took another long drink. “I wish my dad was the Fleet Admiral. Not
that I’m saying it’s your name that got the job for you. But, you know, it
probably didn’t hurt.”

Stalling for time, she picked up her glass of warm Paradon Cider and took
a long draw. The spices danced along her tongue, heating her entire body.
Her limbs felt a little less tense. Relax. You can do this.
“I’m excited, that’s for sure.”
He leaned closer, his breath warm against her face. “It might be the drink
talking, but I can’t take my eyes off your breasts.”
She glanced down at the loose fabric of her blouse, the same green as her
eyes. It was a little girly compared to what she usually wore, but she’d
chosen it for a reason. If you’re finally going to sleep with him, why pretend?
“You’re not so bad yourself.” She forced herself to reach out and run a
hand gently along the muscles of his stomach.
He’s muscular, but not like Liam. My Keltair was pure muscle.
But this guy exists somewhere other than your dreams. You can’t live in a
“Hannah, if you keep that up, I’m not going to be able to control myself.”
He groaned, chugging his drink and smacking it loudly on the table.
Her hand froze. She took a deep breath. This is what she wanted. Right?
Very purposely, she locked gazes with him. “Maybe that’s exactly what I
He stared. “Really?”
Deep breath. You’re going to go crazy if you don’t move on from Liam.
He leaned in and kissed her. His lips were wet against her own.
She waited for the tingle of attraction, of enjoyment, but nothing came.
Trying to take a breath, his tongue was suddenly jabbing into her mouth.
