Juliana Harrison is in serious need of saving. When her neglectful husband abandons her along with their marriage, she’s stunned—though she knows she shouldn’t be. The man was a jerk and she’ll be better off without him. However, just when she thought he could sink no lower, he puts a restraining order on her, claiming she’s been threatening his life just so he can take their Earthbase home.
Officer Maverick Perkins looks like he’s stepped right out of the past and right into her life. Like everything else on the Earthbase of Baida Proper the police style is what she liked to think of as retro-Earth, based of the twentieth century as it was back on the planet Earth--except of course for the obvious, like squad cars that hover not drive and guns that fire lasers not bullets. Unfortunately, Maverick has been sent to evict her. He’s the last person she’d expect to come to her rescue. Yet somehow, he manages to turn what should have been a terrible experience into something Juliana will never want to forget.
