To complicate things, a captivating new crew member appears to be just his type.
Marlis has a sixth sense for danger, a keen aim with her pistol... and a dream-crushing brain injury. She planned on becoming a trooper her whole life, but now she’s disqualified.

Sten's ship crashed on Earth centuries ago, and since then, he's been hiding in plain sight, awaiting rescue. But a thousand years is a long time to go without companionship, even for a long-lived alien, and the human female he's guarded since childhood has grown into an alluring woman.
When a mysterious man offers to buy the "statue" in Angie's garden, Sten knows he's been discovered.
