Captain Saker Hawkings and First Mate L’Wren James agree to keep the mission and passion separate, but with two beautiful alien empaths onboard, it’s not only planetary peace negotiations that are in danger of breaking down.

L’Wren James and Saker Hawkings know that there’s no room on a starship for a captain and first mate to indulge their passion during a dangerous peace mission. The fragility of the cease-fire in the gender war on the divided planet Ourania threatens the stability of subspace shipping lanes, and the starship Sulaco’s mission is to get the negotiating team there and deliver them safely back.

When they take onboard Anchises and Cytheria, mysterious empath negotiators from the secretive world of Turaceona, they find their commitment to duty and to each other a struggle to maintain in the sexually heightened and emotionally charged atmosphere.

But Anchises’s and Cytheria’s struggle to keep their secret and the loss they cannot speak of hidden leaves one dangerously injured and the other missing in action. Only the truth about the man he is and the woman she is can save them.

Can Hawk and L’Wren face up to the challenges of duty, passion, and sexuality and still save not only their relationship but the peace process itself?
