"The captain finds he has more than a transporter problem when Jessie comes aboard"
Although there has been a transporter accident, the
Praetorium are in the vicinity and want to capture the
Alliance Starship Freedom. To escape, the captain orders
the ship into hyperdrive.
Jessie Wyndom had a normal life in Ann Arbor, Michigan,
USA. She has her Ms. Fix-It business and the family farm
even if her lifestyle did seem strange to the rest of her
family. So, if this isn't one of her brother's jokes, what
was she doing zapped onto a space ship -- and what do you
mean there's a war going on so she can't go home yet?
Captain Marcus Viator's life is just the way he likes it.
Serenian culture values calm, logic and tradition. Their
Elders are trusted to decide careers and select mates
although Marcus has kept his family secret even from them.
So what was he going to do with this volatile Terran and
the feelings he has developed for her?
This book was a joy to read. There are many unusual turns
and surprises in this humorous and action packed story.
Jessie and Marcus find they have more than they thought in
common. Jessie is a strong, independent woman who shows
Marcus there are successful choices in life that challenge
tradition. Star Trek fans will recognize and enjoy some
references slipped into the story and futuristic fans have
another for the keeper shelf. The story ends with
possibility for continuing adventures that I hope will be
