Title: IF the GUY FITS
Genre: Space Western Rom Com
Maxine Scull grew up on a gentlemen’s farm on New Earth where her toes stretched into warm soil and her shoulders kissed the cool breeze. That was her youth, so privileged she even had a pet pony. She also had the time to stare at clouds and think acting might be a viable career choice, certainly better than studying something practical—like art history. Accounting: that never crossed her mind. Being a repo agent . . . she didn’t know what that was.
Growing up on a farm she learned about sex before she could walk, and her take on it was simple. When it came to chickens, the rooster was definitely having the better time of it. At an early age and despite her gender, Maxine Scull vowed to be a cock.
But those days were long past. The family money was gone, the soil had turned to dust, and now she knew all about repo agents, having become one herself. At twenty-five, all that remained of her youth was the dream of stardom.
In pursuit of that dream she had spent the last month as far removed from toes in the dirt as possible. Her feet skimmed across the floor lightly, unable to function well in the artificial gravity onboard the space freighter. When she tried to walk she strutted, shoulders rocking, head bobbing, and that reminded her of chickens.
The captain of this ship—who had been trying all along to push her down, jump on her back, and bite her neck—chickens.
