I'm currently sharing snippets from Starquest, the first book in the SF Romance series,  The Destiny Trilogy.
Thanks so much to everyone who commented last week. (I'll be away at the RNA conference next week so will have to miss a week but hope to continue with the penultimate snippet from this book the week after.

Summary of snippets so far:

Having been rescued from her sabotaged starship by the crew of the Destiny, Jess has persuaded them to help her save the inhabitants of the planet Phidia from a cruel invader by the name of Ayandos. Kerry Marchant, the ship's second in command, has had to revise his initial mistrust of her. He is also somewhat stunned on learning that far from being the deceitful character he'd thought her, she is not only on a mission to save a planet, but is in fact an interstellar missionary!

Punctuation slightly Edited from published version to keep within sentence count.

Now that he felt confident she no longer posed a danger to the ship, he admitted to feeling a certain concern for her. She was obviously still anxious about something and he could not surmise what it might be. She was starting to disturb him more than he cared to admit, and it was no longer because he did not trust her. There had been a note of sincerity in her voice when she’d told her story, which was as convincing to him as it obviously was to Jon. 

He shrugged, he must have been in space too long. He was growing soft. He had never lost sleep over a woman before and he was not about to do so now. Not even for a beautiful, green-eyed missionary with long, flame-coloured hair. He narrowed his eyes in sudden resolve. No, especially not for a beautiful, green-eyed missionary with long, flame-coloured hair.


BLURB: When Jestine Darnell is rescued from her sabotaged starship by the crew of the Destiny her only objective is to complete her mission and keep her promise to save a world from slavery. Love is the last thing on her mind. However, she has not counted on losing her heart to Kerry Marchant the ship’s second in command, who makes his distrust of her painfully obvious, despite the chemistry between them. The completion of her mission has consequences that neither of them could have foreseen.

Enter Dahll Tarron, who becomes involved in a long and dangerous quest to find the Destiny. Fates become intertwined, perils shared, culminating in the realization that sometimes love may be so close that there is a danger it will not be recognized until it is too late…
