Oped but she s a sympathetic character The secondary characters are well done even the children I would have liked to see development n the relationship between Nick and Mara although what was there was sweet I do appreciate the author not having the couple fall You Are the Rain into bed during a major crisis The short moments of tenderness between the leads were believable and appropriate to the story Don t let the lack of overt sex scenes keep you from reading It s a good story No time this week for a lengthy review Just have to say whewwww I need a vacation after this sci fi romance adventure Parallels to the Titanicn space Just Cycle Style incredible action seuences and SUCHmagination Artscroll Children's Siddur in the tech Mild romance but who has timen this story Trust me you ll be out of breath when you finish this one The first n Veronica Scott s A Sectors SF Romance series Captain Nick Jameson s one of over 8000 passengers on the maiden voyage of the Nebula Dream Nick s Special Forces but after a mission gone wrong the future looks bleak He will muddle through this cruise and accept the conseuences There he meets Mara Lyrae a businesswoman who he finds attractive and would like to spend some
