A woman who lost everything.
Intergalactic storm racing champion Elaina Carteret had it all – fame, wealth, men – until a horrific accident took it away. To get it back, she agrees to pose as Lainie Carter, medical transport pilot and corporate spy. Her risk-taking attitude infuriates Dr. Erik Johansen, who runs the outpost with an iron hand, a permanent scowl and the tightest bod on the planet.
A man desperate for redemption.
Unable to forgive himself for a past tragedy, Erik works himself into an early grave. He has no patience for the insubordinate Lainie Carter, who can't take an order, disrupts routine and flames his body to ash.
A planet at risk.
When the outpost is attached, they're thrown together in a race across the desert to stop a deadly biogenetic weapon As a fragile trust blossoms between two damaged hearts, their pasts resurface and threaten their growing bond.
Be warned: Erotic romance, level five heat designation, gender neutral characters.
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book? 
this book is part of a series? 
Yes. It is book 1 of the series Green Rising.
you lost sleep while writing this book? 
you did research for this book? 
Yes. The book includes phages and sandstorms, both which I needed to learn more about.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example) 
Yes. Since it is a science fiction romance, it is jam-packed with aliens. Magarans are a bi-gendered species that love in threesomes. Karamites look like their observers, so everyone sees them differently. Den Vedran are an amphibious lifeform with a penchant for biomedical and genetic manipulation.
this book has more than one genre? 
Yes. In addition to science fiction and romance, Amazon also classifies it as suspense and erotica.
you speak more than one language? 
you grew up where you live now? 
you love to read? 
you are never late? 
No. I'm punctual by nature but raising a kid makes mincemeat of any attempt to plan.
you love pizza? 
you love sushi? 
Yes. Vegetarian version. Avocado sushi is just good.
you have a pet? 
Yes. A dog and a cat. The cat's in charge. The dog wants to play.
Where can we find your book online?

Hello, I'm Shari. By day, I crawl out of bed, mainline coffee, walk the dog, get my kid off to school, hop on the metro, and save cities within the four walls of my office. Usually by email.
At night, I take off the suit, curl up with my computer and save cities on a jet-powered skateboard, make six-toed footprints in scarlet sand on the sixth planet in the Andromeda galaxy and bring men and women, who had given up on romance, another chance to find it. I also periodically check on my teen-ager, hiding out in the bedroom and plotting world domination with her minions – the elderly cat and adult dog who insists she's a puppy.
