eBook Description: Whilst finishing up a good day's work in the Earth Interplanetary Administration Office, Karlan Staithley is disturbed by the appearance of a strange alien called Tuluscan Six. Tuluscan tells him that in one year's time, Earth will make contact with his people, the Lamarians, and unwittingly destroy them due to an anomaly in the planetary timelines. He, himself, has come back to warn Karlan, partly to save his people and partly as in the real timeline Karlan and Tuluscan will become lovers. Here and now, he declares his love for Karlan.
At first, Karlan refuses to believe him, even though he finds himself powerfully attracted to the Lamarian, but he's eventually convinced by the in-depth knowledge Tuluscan reveals about his life--facts nobody else knows.
The two men join forces to try to save their futures, but can they in fact change time? And, if they do, how can their mutual passion ever survive?

2 Reader Ratings:
"...A fast pace, appealing hero, and a light, comic touch make the story a fun read."--Obsidian Bookshelf
"4.5 Stars!...This short story is equal parts romantic comedy, with its snappy dialog, and space opera, and should please even those readers who normally avoid science fiction. The fast pace, clear vivid writing, and light comic touch keep the reader engaged...In addition, Tuluscan's ability to keep Karlan flustered and off-balance is amusing. Recommended!"--Val Kovalin, Reviews By Jessewave
The silence flowed between them, but it felt different. More vibrant and open to possibility. Karlan licked his lips. "In your made-up world that I'm still not sure I really believe in, by the way, is that the first time we have sex?"
To his surprise, Tuluscan shook his head. "No. I'll want to. But you'll insist on thinking things through first and you don't let me make love to you properly until ten days after that."
The other man smiled. "Yes. You might be cautious, but you're alive, too. You let me touch you intimately three times in those ten days, and you touch me in return, too. It takes the edge off our desire."
"What changes my mind?"
Tuluscan's eyes clouded over. He looked like he was accessing a private and very pleasurable memory. "I'm never entirely sure; I thought you'd make me wait much longer, if I'm honest with you. And, believe me, I always am. I can't help it. No, I think what makes you open up to me is the fact that on the tenth day after that meal, it's you who takes charge and makes the running. Not me. It changes how things are between us."
Karlan wiped his hands over his lips, very aware of the sudden hardness of his cock. He knew he'd made a decision, one that surprised him very much. "Tell me about how we make love the first time. If we have the time?"
The other man caught his gaze and swallowed. When he spoke, his voice sounded more vulnerable. "We do, for now. But you want me to explain it to you?"
Karlan said nothing in reply; he simply nodded.
Another silence, then Tuluscan began to speak.
