The SFR Brigade presents, Adam and Eve

Good news for scifi romance lovers: it is time for a new issue of the SFR Brigade presents! 

Today, I'm presenting a snippet from the beginning of my novella Adam and Eve; the third book in my series Embarkment 2577. It's out of context, of course, but I'm sure you get the idea.
