Katie Sweet was born in a small English town in the geologically recent past, and for the present lives in a slightly larger English town with an unreliable group of artists and a reliable internet connection. She has been published in a number of SF magazines and is making her erotica debut with this story.
Lacey Margretsdottir is trained for space. Her first assignment is a two-man scoutship under dark-eyed Iain Sinclair, a difficult superior who ignores the regulations and flies alone. Lacey's high-gravity sexuality draws him in, and they discover together that his need for control is more than matched by her passion for submission. But the dangers of subspace exploration are still ahead.
