Here is the coverjacket marketing blurb for Big Damn Love Story:
Love can be dangerous.
For Miles Knighton, Captain of the Spitfire, shipboard romances are something he’s always tried to avoid. They bring complications and dangerous distractions, and distractions are something he doesn’t need right now.
Instead, he needs to focus on the job at hand. He has captured the vile slaver Santagello, but doesn’t have enough fuel to make it to the drop point. To earn some badly needed money, he takes a job protecting a town from mujees.
But too many distractions are in play at the moment. Besides taking aboard his former lover and finding a stowaway, the Captain has to help his daughter return to health after taking a bullet for him, while learning how to be a father.
The worst distraction of all is the doctor tending to his daughter’s gunshot wound, Zell. A woman of undeniable beauty and unending compassion, the doctor has cast her lot with his crew, and in doing so has placed herself in greater danger than she could imagine.
With so many distractions working against him, what tragic consequences will befall Miles and his crew?
Big Damn Love Story is a full-length novel, and the sequel to David’s smash debut novella, A Whisper in Space.
