SFR Brigade presents… a snippet from Morgan’s Return #sfrbp

picture of cover of Morgan's ReturnHere’s another snippet from my new release, Morgan’s Return. Morgan has just noticed her lover, Admiral Ravindra, sitting with another woman in a crowded bar. Having spent some time in the ladies room, talking herself out of scratching the other woman’s eyes out, she has accepted she can’t afford to make a scene.

Taking one more deep breath, she pushed the door release and went back into the party atmosphere of the bar, striding toward the table where Partridge was sitting, his eyes wide as he sipped his drink.

“Morgan Selwood.”

The name was shouted so loud the noise in the bar lessened for a moment. Before she had time to turn, strong hands gripped Morgan’s waist and swung her around in a circle. She knew that voice. The man set her down, then hugged her. “Good to see you, babe. Where’ve you been?”

Tall, dark blond hair. He beamed, lips spread in a huge smile. She had to bring the face up from her implant. Junior Commander Biel Fisher, hot-shot fighter pilot. They’d had a brief affair five years ago.

“Er, hi, Biel. It’s been a while.”

“Sure has. Last I heard you’d disappeared somewhere around Calisto’s Veil. Hey, what’ve you done to your eyes? Contacts?”

“Um, yeah.” She edged back, hoping he’d let go. Oh fuck fuck fuck. She was supposed to be Marion Sefton, not Morgan Selwood. And she’d made it obvious she’d recognized him.

“Marion? An old friend?”

Oh, double fuck. Ravindra’s voice was deadly as a leashed vulsaur.
