Stellar Drift

A Central Galactic Concordance Novella

By Carol Van Natta

From Pets in Space 8

Stellar Drift

After a deep-space disaster, military pilot Sairy Sarvand hides in her starship in the continent-sized protected rainforest on Qal Corona. She’s in a holding pattern until she saves the life of a dedicated nature reserve ranger. Even though her secrets might be exposed, she’s drawn to the kind and honorable man.

Houyen Albasrey is determined to investigate a recurring disease, one that would have killed him but for the elusive Sairy. His agency is skeptical, but he’s convinced that she and her exotic genetically engineered pet are key to tracking the source. His attraction to her makes him want to both keep her near him and send her away to keep her safe.

Unfortunately, their quest draws the attention of a criminal boss who believes they’re hunting for treasure. With the gang hot on their trail, Sairy and Hoyen must ignore their growing passion and fight to stay alive. When they discover the source might be even deadlier than the disease, can they survive long enough to do what must be done? Or will they be caught in a web of secrets, lies, and betrayal?
