My story in this year's collection is Galactic Search and Rescue. The “pets” are actually an unusual team of animals trained to help human rescuers in disaster situations. I wrote it in part because I've seen how animals can make a huge difference in people's lives. The main characters of Galactic Search and Rescue, Taz and Rylando, are great at rescuing others, but not so great at dealing with their feelings for each other. Especially when their latest rescue might be their last.
Pets in Space 5
Galactic Search and Rescue
by Carol Van Natta
Subcaptain Taz Correa, telekinetic talent and first-responder in the military’s underfunded and overworked Galactic Search and Rescue division, hides her unprofessional attraction for teammate Rylando and his unorthodox team of animal assistants. When catastrophe strikes a politically important town, Taz, Rylando, and his animals are the only rescuers left to respond.
Subcaptain Rylando Dalroinn loves his telepathic connection to his animals, but wants a heart connection with teammate Taz. Unfortunately, not only is it against the rules, but he doesn’t know how to tell her. And in GSAR, rescue missions always come first.
Kaz lives her worst nightmare when trapped underground with the animals in a hidden room set to blow sky high. Everything Rylando loves is in peril, and now he’s at the mercy of people who aren’t just victims.
If Taz, Rylando, and the animals can’t find their way to save each other fast and neutralize the threat, the whole town will become a disaster statistic.
If you like space opera romance, star-crossed lovers, and clever rescue animals, you’ll love Carol Van Natta’s Galactic Search and Rescue.
