Welcome to another Saturday of Science Fiction & Fantasy snippets exchanged by writers.My contribution this week is from my fun space operetta with romance and mystery “Captured by the Hawk”
The eBook is FREE from 13-15th to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Space pirate Black Hawk has trapped the spy Grey Kat and discovers her official identity.
Black Hawk glanced up when she was ushered into the room. His eyes lingered, registering astonishment at her red hair and fair, freckled skin. He stood and paced around her with the supple grace of a prowling tiger. He spoke in a deep resonant voice, “A dramatic change! Grey Kat is entirely washed away.”
She was attracted strongly by the feline grace of his body in motion. When he stood still, the image of raw, feral power was replaced by the enigma of the Black Hawk, clothed entirely in black. She raised her chin provocatively, and spoke in the haughty accent of the Solarian upper class. “I am grateful for your kindness in providing me with clean clothes and a comfortable room.”
He circled her again, insisting, “I know your face! Where have I seen it?” He halted in front of her, staring with narrowed eyes. She remained motionless and silent, only her eyes revealed insolence.
“Wait,” he cried, with a confident smile curving his lips. “I have it! You are Mistress Trina Sligo, daughter of the Solarian diplomat.”
