Written in the Stars

From Pets in Space 7
Stranded on an alien space station with only books and an alien cat for company.
That’s Megan’s life, but she’s determined to keep smiling. She just needs to save enough for a ticket back to Earth, and she’s managing just fine—until Drask walks into her bookshop. The grumpy alien mercenary is infuriating, arrogant, and hotter than molten steel. It wouldn’t be so bad if he wore more clothes—the blue-skinned alien’s muscles are a distraction Megan doesn’t need.
Talbrek Station is the perfect place to lie low. That’s what Drask needs after a mission gone wrong. Finding a bookshop is an unexpected benefit, especially one run by the sexiest woman he’s ever seen. Exasperating, smart, and unwilling to back down from anything, Megan is everything Drask desires, wrapped up in a curvy package that won’t let him think straight.
When the local criminals threaten both Megan’s bookstore and her pet, Drask can’t stand aside. Not even if it drags them both into a gang war.
