It’s the boldest conquest of our time—the colonization of Mars.
Of the thousands who clamored for a one-way ticket to the Red Planet, only a fraction remain in the running. Now they’re converging on Hawaii’s Big Island for a nail-biting competition to be the first to launch.
Mila Todorov has prepared for this moment throughout her young life. With her revolutionary propulsion design already built into the Mars vessel, she likes her chances—especially if she can team with her all-time idol, Major Jancey Beaumont, a former NASA astronaut whose last space mission made her a worldwide hero.
Jancey is desperate for a return to space, but the margin for error is razor-thin. Can she afford to gamble her destiny on a woman so distracting as Mila?

T-Minus Two — Winner, Lesbian Romantic Suspense/Intrigue/Adventure, GCLS Goldie Finalist, Ann Bannon Popular Choice Award.
Well-written, delightful reading and a charming romance based on wonderful, modern women competing at the highest level… what more could we want to entertain us?
…is an enjoyable read. The chemistry between Mila and Jancey is real, and when they finally do get down to business, it's hot.
The Lesbian Review
I love the premise and the characters, and with a romance to boot, what's not to love? Read it! If you think it's too sci-fi for you, it really isn't. It's a novel about science and it's fiction, but it definitely isn't what I'd call hardcore sci-fi.
