Dr. Wren Fisher is the head of the science team on the scout ship Eleanor, and she is in the midst of the most extraordinary discovery of her life.
A strange and beautiful life form is the subject of her scientific experiments. But as she spends more and more time with the growing organism, she finds herself becoming strongly attached to it - and strongly aroused by it.
With First Officer Martin Lewis watching, will Wren be taken hard and without protection?
Most of this story is vanilla human-human sex. The alien scene is in the last fifth of the story, and doesn't go on for very long. The scene is also preceded by a rather jarring shift in pacing and tone - a redshirt suddenly dies (somehow - the alien is in a sealed chamber, so the crew are rather quick to blame it for killing a guy) and the story rushes on from there. It's like the author had this big idea in mind, but suddenly remembered there was some kind of length limit on her story and had to quickly land things before the deadline.
Also, the pregnancy mentioned in the blurb gets about three sentences, and three story ends suddenly on a dark note. hopefully, the sequel will take things further. otherwise this whole series will have been a waste of time.
