A surprise visit. A promise kept. Can desperation turn into love?

Eve has been settling on Kuria nicely when her parents surprise her for a visit. Too ashamed to admit that she hasn’t found the Novan love of her life, she blurts out the first name she can think of.

Irid doesn’t mind pretending to be with Eve… until he realizes he’s not pretending. When her family returns to Earth, will he be able to convince Eve that his feelings are real?
