Stag and the crew of the Varnish are on a mission, responding to a distress signal of a freighter that has been attacked by the Markus Models. Instead of finding the enemy, they discover one sole survivor. Nala´s a human, and having suffered at their hands during his time on Earth, there´s no species Stag despises more. But when the petite woman confuses him for an android and tries to order him around, Stag decides she´ll live - and pay for her slights. Nala Vestria has lost her freighter, her crew and her father, only to become personal maid to a cyborg. Stag is surly, short-tempered, and completely untrusting of humans...not to mention intense, commanding, and maybe the hottest being Nala has ever seen. When she finds him temporarily at her mercy, Nala isn´t sure if she wants to kill him or kiss him. Then again, life is short. She opts for the latter. Nala swiftly becomes a distraction Stag can´t afford, especially after he´s had a carnal taste of what the woman has to offer. He´ll take her back to Garden, his home planet, and be rid of her - as well as the emotions she evokes. But as their journey home becomes harrowing, Nala may prove to be more of an asset than a liability. To both the ship...and the lonely cyborg who commands her. 1. Language: English.

Stage Fright by Lynn Howes, directed by Emma Taylor.
