Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors. I know I kick started you off with my currently in progress Rockstar MS last week, but you don't mind if we story jump for a bit, do you? Today’s eight sentences are from my first ever Ellora’s Cave release, The Colonist’s Wife. A short novel due out the 15th of March, so not long now. I'm starting to get excited about it, hence the story jump. Don't worry, we'll get back to that poor girl lying on the bathroom floor in Vegas, I promise.
The Colonist's Wife takes place in the year 2088 in a mining colony on the moon Esther, circling Jupiter. It’s my witness protection/mail-order bride/erotic romance set in outer space. Hope you like it.
Wives went last.

Louise stood to the side of the cargo bay doors and let all the important company people disembark first down the gangway. No one even gave her a second look. People strode alongside the small transports that rolled out, raising plumes of gray dust when they hit the surface. The whole thing unfolded with military precision until finally only she remained.
It was time to meet her husband.
She could do this.
