Cloud Nine - A G.A.L.E. Force Novella
They saved the world twice, but that doesn't mean they can save their marriage . . .
For Lawrence and Gale Croxley, finding a way to balance paying the bills and planning their family hasn't been an easy task. With her being forced to stay working in Atlanta, the expenses force them both to work full-time. He's determined to prove they can afford a mortgage. But, being freelance photographer, that means leaving her for extended periods of time, job after job. All she wants is to have him around. Their telepathic link requires them to spend time together, and she can't link with him if he isn't there.
So when they leave Atlanta to spend the weekend at his parents' home, Gale and Lawrence try to decide what can be done to remedy their situation. And maybe even rekindle their romance, while they're at it.

Standalone-ish spin-off of G.A.L.E. Force. I highly recommend reading that first.
