Vallory Schist does not care about winning a prize at Redpoint One’s annual Exotic Pet show. She must quickly find her rare Etrucian Daubpups a new habitat, and an attraction to Damien cannot get in the way.
Failing life-support systems at both the show and station keep engineer Damien Lysander busier than ever. Then he encounters Vallory and her heat-sensitive daubpups… and the fireworks when they are together.
Add into the mix the nosy Naughty Knitter’s Club, interfering repair bots, a series of pet-nappings, and daubpups who will not stay in their cages…
How can love not bloom?
