About Seducing the Stargazer:With over one hundred million asteroids in the solar system, it took only one to bring them together again. The stars have been the only constant in astronomer Winchester Carlsbad’s life. A pistol, she will do anything to continue her research on the Martian moons. When she discovers an asteroid on collision course with her former love’s rocket launch, she not only sees her opportunity to secure her telescope time, but to finally best the man who propelled her heart into a black hole when he walked away from her five years ago. Billionaire Dr. Garner Knox is the face of astronomy to the public and a media darling. As spokesperson and investor in Personal Space, a privately owned space corporation, he has only one problem—his company can’t seem to get anything up. When Wynn fires back into his life and throws his mission into a tailspin, he knows he must get the one person who never believed in him to help him get his probe into orbit. Working with Garner, Wynn battles the for profit space agency as well the sexy stargazer who rekindles her desires and makes her fall all over again. Garner fights to lasso his loose cannon from angering his investors and learns that vanishing from Wynn’s life didn’t make her disappear from his heart.

"You know what I think every time I see Saturn?" Wynn came up behind him.
"Tell me." He adjusted the focus and continued to stare at the planet.
"That's out there." Her voice took on a dream-like soft quality that surrounded him.
He glanced at her then back to the planet.
"Garner, that is out there, and it’s massive, and colorful and beautiful, and how lucky are we to be able to look in a telescope and see it?" She put her hand on his arm. "For as long as I live and as long as you live, and for as long as everyone who is alive on this little blue ball today, that incredible, gorgeous ringed planet will be there. Like it was put there for us to see."
He nodded. When she looked into the sky she saw home, and he saw endless possibilities.
"Let me show you something else." Once more, she took the helm.
The dome of the telescope turned slightly, the sound of gears grinding and machinery moving echoed around them. Again, she motioned him over, and he looked into the lens at an ocean of stars with Mars off of the far left. "You are off here." If she wanted to focus on the planet, her aim wasn't right.
"No, I'm not." She stood close beside him. "We need a radar telescope to see it, but you’re looking at the piece of sky where I discovered the asteroid."
Right there, looking at the stars, his book took form. It was him and Wynn, one homeward bound, one running away.
"What would you be doing now, if you never turned the telescope and found it?" he asked. Would she have still sought him out? Did she find that asteroid and cheer because she had a reason to contact him, or did she curse she had to search him out?
"I don't know, but I think I was meant to find it." She stepped away.
He watched her pace around the small building.
"Don't you find it odd that in the infinite amount of space, I happened across the one undiscovered asteroid that was on course with Maverick?" As if something spooked her, she wrapped her arms around her shoulders.
Her words made his heart speed and his stomach drop, and he instantly went to her. "Until this exact second, I didn't think about it."
"I know. For so long I was caught up in games, favors, and all the fanfare. And then two days ago, I was walking through your kitchen." She turned and looked up at him. "Your kitchen."
"Yes." Needing a connection to her, he took her hand.
"I was getting a snack and I opened your refrigerator, and after all these years, there was your milk, your bar of chocolate, your block of cheese."
In the darkness, he caught a bit of light twinkling off the tears in her eyes.
"Then off to the side, was my yogurt. It hit me that I was in your kitchen looking for my yogurt and then it hit me," she continued. "I think we all go through life letting things happen and not thinking about it or its connection to anything else. We get so caught up in the most trivial things, but out of everything in the universe, I found that asteroid."
Her words, her tone, just her, all stirred something in him and acting purely on instinct, he pulled her closer and kissed her.
Unable to contain his need, he opened his mouth. In an instant, their tongues connected, and his body reacted. The desire he possessed the night before came back in full force, a throb radiating through him. He either needed to stop or make love to her right here and right now.
