The Last Christmas on Earth by Augustina Van Hoven

Book 0 in the New Frontier series

THE LAST CHRISTMS ON EARTH is a prequel novella to my New Frontier series.

It takes place just before Christmas and a few months before the crew of the Starship Halcyon leave earth to colonize a new planet. It tells the love story of Scott Sutherland, an engineer on the ship and Harper Castille, a botanist. Both are looking forward to a new life on a new world, but other people have different plans for the crew and passengers of the Halcyon.

Read an Excerpt:

She yawned.  “That sounds great.  Right now, all I can think of is sleep.  It’s been a long day, and I need to be rested if I’m going to put in a full day of skiing tomorrow.”

She headed toward the open door off the living room and stepped into the bedroom.  Inside were a king-size four-poster bed, two nightstands, and a large dresser.  A small door off to the side led to a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and a double sink, and another door that led to a deck outside with a hot tub.  She turned around to see Scott leaning on the door frame.

“Do you like it?”

She walked up to him, threw her arms around his neck, and kissed him.  When they broke apart, he grinned at her.  “I take it that’s a yes.”

She kissed him again.

When they broke apart he ran a finger along her face.  “Could I possibly persuade you to stay awake a little longer?”

She smiled at him and started unbuttoning his shirt.
