Science Fiction Romance

Most people auditioned to join as a dancer for the Comettes for the prestige and opportunities, Tassia Megg needed to escape and reach her aunt safely. She had been hunted for years, and now she would finally be free of that threat, and find retribution for those who had killed all she'd held dear.

Working as a security officer on the Nebula Zephyr, Liam Austin had attended the auditions, and Tassia had captured his interest from the start. Then, as he processed her paperwork, he was certain that they were forgeries, but he trusted his instincts that he could trust her and that she needed his help. It wasn't only protection Liam felt for Tassia. Liam wanted to get to know her beter, and the more time he spent with her, the more enchanted he became.

Unfortunately, he wasn't the only one with an interest in Tassia. She was still in danger on the ship, and Liam needed her to trust him. Not only for her protection, but also for what she was becoming to him.

Star Cruise: Mystery Dancer may be a short story, but this addition to the Star Cruise series was jam packed with suspense, romance, adventure and a fascinating creature named F'rrh. The audition and challenges Tassia encountered were entertaining. Liam was a wonderful hero, attentive, patient, and wanting only what was best for Tassia.
