Attacked as a young adult, Jewel is left scarred and alone. She applies to the 1 Night Stand service, believing no one can see past her appearance to love her. But she doesn’t expect to be sent to a space station where her date could be any number of unusual alien species. Flavia left everything behind to be one of five humans working for the Space Service space station. Extremely homesick, she is excited to learn she will be a guide to a woman from Earth visiting the station for a couple days. She is immediately drawn to the petite woman, seeing past her scars to her true inner beauty, stirring unforeseen desires. Unfortunately, Jewel is there for a date which Flavia hasn’t been told about. Can she contain her lust and simply show her a good time? Or will she let her desire lead them into an unknown future?
V pressed a green button on the wall then linked their fingers. Jewel had no time to comprehend how the transport worked before they were sucked up into the air then shot through a narrow cylinder. She now knew what traveling through a shop vac would feel like. If she hadn’t been so worried about hitting someone else along the way and how she’d land, she could have enjoyed her proximity to V. No matter how much she tried to deny her feelings, she enjoyed her touch.
When they dropped out of the pipe, V reached out for her, but Jewel wasn’t ready for the impact. She crumpled to the ground, pulling the other woman down on top of her.
Giggling, V rolled off. “Thankfully, these floors are padded. I haven’t landed like that since my first week here.” She jumped to her feet then helped Jewel up.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t know what to expect.” But she wasn’t sorry. Being that close to such a gorgeous woman awakened long dormant desires. If only she was my date, my one-night stand….
“No problem. I guess I should have explained the tube before we used it, but we had to get through while it was clear.” V grabbed her hand. “Come on, let’s get you settled. I have a lot planned.”
Planned? That sounded like she wanted to take her out in public. She knew what to expect from people on Earth, but here? She couldn’t handle negative reactions from other species. “Um, I’d rather settle in for the night.”
“Oh no, I don’t think so.” V placed her palm on a screen and after a beep, a gray steel door slid open. She pulled her inside. “You can rest for a bit, but I’m taking you to the club tonight.”
“A club?” No way. She’d refuse to go.
