About The Book

Jeanie and Liam are geniuses with ships and systems—less so with each other

The ground shakes under Jeanie’s feet, and she staggers across the pristine corridor, her blowtorch digging into her hip when she collides with the wall. The blaring alarm pounds through her head. We get it, the moon is imploding! She’s still far away from the ship that’s her only escape from the disintegrating base. Too far away.

Years ago, Jeanie and Liam thought the isolated moon base would be a middle ground between her spacefaring lifestyle and his need for the stability of a space station. It didn’t take long to realize that the life they chose was making both of them miserable.

But now it’s literally falling apart around them, with no escape in sight. No escape but one slim chance they have no choice but to take. It may not be comfortable or pretty, but it just might keep them alive long enough to save their marriage.

Endless Sea of Stars is a sci-fi rekindling the romance novella with a good amount of spice — intended for mature readers! Content notes: Sexually explicit scenes, liberal use of obscenities. See the book page on for detailed content notes.

The Review

Jeanie and her husband Liam settled on an abandoned moon base that is now imploding. Jeanie decided she needed to retrieve the data stick holding her AI, rather than heading for their spaceship, endangering both her and Liam. Now it’s too late, every escape avenue is sealed off, and the only means of escape is an escape pod.

The escape pod is a questionable choice, since neither Jeanie nor Liam had gone over it to ensure it was safe. Getting the pod free from the base is risky and causes damage, but they are free to go – but go where? Many systems are offline, including the navigation system, so they’re flying blind.

The food printer is barely working, and only producing grey slime, the shower has only cold water, and the fuel tank is almost empty. Keeping the ship in one piece is a constant battle, and they are just barely keeping it going.

Stuck together in a small pod, Jeanie and Liam argue, which is exacerbated when Liam sends out a message asking about ending the marriage. Jeanie receives the reply, and that’s when the blame game begins. Liam blames her for risking their lives to retrieve the data stick, and for doing little around the ship because of her injured hip – an injury he caused.

She moves into another room, and they are barely talking, so Liam is unable to explain that the information on a divorce was so she could leave him if that was what she wanted, not about him wanting to leave. The one constant is their sex life something they both enjoy and manage to push their anger aside for.

When the situation becomes a matter of life or death, all their anger is forgotten while they attempt to solve their problems together.

A suspenseful novella, as Jeanie and Liam fight to stay alive and find a place to land. And what will they do then? Lots of surprises, sex and suspense. Four stars.
