Kirk by Tasha Black
She was a child star. He was born among the stars…
Katie Henderson has been a teenager in the collective consciousness of Sci-Fi fans for a decade. Never mind that she’d rather be called Kate and is tired of wearing a starship uniform. Like her character in Suspended in Space, Katie’s life has been hopelessly stuck, still orbiting the waylaid starship that made her a household name, long after the show’s cancellation. She’s decided to do one last Comic Con circuit during her college summer break. After that she can’t wait to start a new life where she can make a real difference and leave the world of Sci-Fi behind.
Kirk is a visitor from another planet. Back on Aerie, he was migrated into a gorgeous human body, and assigned to learn about humans by choosing a female to annihilate with pleasure. Kirk looked forward to his assignment, but had no idea that his first look at Kate would bring him to his knees. He is desperate to make her his mate. But the impudent little human doesn’t want to get involved with an alien.
When an over-eager fan starts showing up where he doesn’t belong, Kate allows Kirk to act as a temporary bodyguard. But sharing close quarters with the achingly handsome alien threatens to push Kate’s willpower past the limit.
Will the practical former actress hold out for a “normal” life? Or will this interstellar hunk convince her to lighten up and relish all that he has to offer?
