Just because I decided to save your hide.....#Book Hook' from Beloved Enemy - #MFRWHooks

This is my first foray into 'MFRW 'Book Hooks'
I'm thrilled that the third book in the Destiny Trilogy, the award winning 'Beloved Enemy', will soon be joining the first two books Starquest and Children of the Mist as an audio book, as well as eBook and paperback. Each book has a hero and heroine with there own 'happy ever after' but each story features some of the same characters and a link to the starship Destiny

Here's my 'bookhook' and an excerpt. I hope you enjoy it.
Cat may be a bit frosty at the moment, but she has her reasons, and when she eventually thaws, she shows a whole different side to her!

She gave him her best, withering look. "Fine, and just because I decided to save your hide, don't get any ideas. We don't have to like each other."

(And Happy Valentine's Day for tomorrow, to you too, Cat, LOL!)

Cat Kincaid is obsessed with killing the man she believes is responsible for the torture and death of her sister, but when she eventually catches up with him, survival becomes a greater priority than revenge.

Kerry Marchant, haunted by memories, regret, and self-blame, shields himself from the pain of the past by committing himself totally to the starship, Destiny, of which he is part owner. However, the beautiful, red-haired woman who reminds him of his lost love, and who he suspects is working for a corrupt regime, represents a possible threat not only to the ship, but to his heart.

Marooned on an inhospitable planet, they need to work together to stay alive, fighting not only unknown assailants, but their growing attraction. But how can they learn to trust each other when he has vowed never to get close to a woman again, and she made a solemn pledge to destroy him?


"You landed that well," he said, scrutinising the vehicle.

"Not particularly. I actually crash-landed."

"I was being facetious."

"She took a battering in an electric storm as we came in. It only lasted few minutes, but it was bad enough to wreck the flight controls." Why did she need to explain anything to him anyway? 

"At least the bushes give some cover. I’ll put a force-shield up overnight, for protection, of course, I just didn’t want to drain her power sources." She touched a panel on the ship’s hull, and after a moment, a door slid silently open. Shifter leapt in immediately but Kerry stood back as she climbed into the airlock.

She turned with her gun still trained on him. ‘Are you coming? Or would you prefer to take your chances out there all night?’

He shrugged and followed her inside. They waited in the eerie blue light until the inner hatch opened.

She walked across to the control panel at the front and made a few adjustments. "It’s not much, but it’s likely to be home for a while until I find a way off this planet. There’s not enough left in the fuel cells to get away in this, even if I could repair the damage."

He looked around, his face expressionless.

She frowned at his perusal. The furnishings of the small interior were necessarily sparse. A pilot seat and passenger seat to the front, and, at the rear of the vessel, a small living and storage area, complete with a combined table and bunk unit. If he didn’t like it, that was too bad. He could always go back outside and sleep rough if he preferred.

"I dare say it will suffice," he said at length.

"Well thank you. I’m so glad it meets with your approval."

His expression remained impassive. It seemed her cynicism was lost on him. "It would be useful to have a name to call you."

"Katrina. Katrina — Kincaid. I prefer to be called Cat."

Again that stunning smile spread over his face and she noticed how his eyes seemed even bluer above the even, white teeth. Damn, there was something about him. She almost regretted she’d have to kill him eventually.
