Captain Bekka Taylor must learn to trust Lieutenant Javed Malik but in a world where mistrust is rampant, can she trust her feelings enough to learn to trust him?
There were only three things that Captain Bekka Taylor wanted in life: 1) Command of a Warrior Class Star Marauder, 2) To grow old gracefully and 3) A lover who understood her fiery nature. She was accomplishing two out of her three objectives very nicely when an internal IUA conflict begins to encompass the whole world as she knows it. Then Lieutenant Javed Malik comes aboard, clearly younger than she, with dreamy eyes and a secret meant only for her. But letting him in means getting rid of years of frustration and anguish and maybe her career. Can she survive another war or the smoldering looks from her junior officer sent to protect her 24/7?
"That's all and most of what I can distinguish right now with the current information. It is also all I can risk sharing with you through this media. But we all share the same concerns as I'm sure you have. Javed has the specifics on our next contact. And please don't get mad at me for the unconventional way I instructed him to give those orders to you. You'll see the necessity of the act once completed. Trust me on this."
I turned to look at him as I tried to mask the suspicion in my gaze. "What is she talking about?"
In less than the blink of an eye, he was again by my side, pulling me up from my chair, his hands taking my face to gaze in my eyes as he leaned toward me. "Don't struggle," he whispered close to my ears. "I think we have prying eyes." His lips came down fiercely on mine, his tongue snaking in to dominate me and I wanted to do the very thing he asked that I not do. Instead I tried to let myself enjoy the moment as it had been quite some time since I had had this type of human contact.
My hands gripped his waist and pulled him even closer to me. I felt his legs press harder into me as his arms went completely around me. Within moments, I experienced the hard bulge of his body and mine responded in kind since my crotch dripped with need. There was nothing more I wanted to do except rip his clothes off that luscious male form. I let my thoughts drift away to what life might be like to have this young man all to myself for however long I needed to satisfy this itch.
He pulled away from me and shuddered, resting his forehead against mine. "We should stop." His brown eyes looked deep into mine and I almost passed out as his next words flashed across my consciousness. You are an amazing woman and, rest assured, we will finish this. I want to finish this.
The last bit had exploded across my brain and I raised a shaky hand to rub my forehead. It was as if he were right inside me, whispering his thoughts. And I wasn't sure I liked the implication one little bit.

Don't fight the sensations. Let them happen. Fallon 2 and some other clonedroids helped us to perfect one of their technologies for our use. This is the major way they communicate between each other when they are close. I'm not sure of the working capacity over distances as we've never used them before. His brilliant smile took a little of the edge off what he thought.
You are now the proud owner of some audiobotic nanotechnology. They attach to your nerves for hearing and other pertinent areas of your brain associated with the function. From now on, we'll be able to communication this way as we are attuned to each other. No one else is on this frequency. It's ours alone.
I tossed a quick glance toward the camera I knew Trevor had poised on us and wondered what the computer would see. Closing my eyes, I knew I had to keep myself calm, otherwise consequences that neither of us wanted or needed would happen. I counted in silence to myself before I tried to subvocalize one word. You realize Trevor probably was the only one spying on us, don't you? No one has access to this room unless on my order.
A slow lazy smile crossed his face and he gave my cheek a gentle caress. Sometime I will make you explain to me what the counting is.
Crap. I closed my eyes and realized my tenuous position. How much did I want this man to know about my past or me? His warm chuckle slid over me before I grasped its meaning.
You're wrong if you think no one is listening. The other ability that we've been given is you will sense when someone is a clonedroid. It's an ability they have as well as they can in an instant tell who is clonedroid or who is human. I guess it's a foe or friend sense which obviously serves them well. Fallon 2 has been so helpful in our development of these abilities. Maybe a little too helpful in some ways.
I swallowed. This would be hard because the man was scrumptious, but I knew what I had to do as this was not how I wanted to treat this man overall. "What do you think you were doing?"
A brief look of surprise crossed his face and I knew there were actions which I took he wouldn't know about. Bravo! Well done. Fallon said that you'd be quick to adapt. And because you're so quick to adapt, I know you haven't been brainwashed. Those who were have some difficulty when trying to access certain aspects of their brain which are necessary when using this technology.
