Why would I ever return to Ma’an?
My moema and I escaped from the planet star cycles ago, to avoid her being forced to remarry after my poepa’s passing. I grew up well far away from there, not worrying about being betrothed to some government official just to bear his children. And now I work for the Universal Space Racer Association, traveling all over the quadrants to decide whether new teams meet the qualifications to join.
I never expected to be on a shuttle, heading back to Ma’an. The new chairman of Ma’an and the USRA assured me I’ll be allowed to leave at the end of my evaluation of the planet, but I have my doubts. I can’t even get out of the assignment. Trust me, I’ve tried.
At least I’ll be able to see more of Deyal, my only family member still alive. Plus, my best friend is convinced the three childhood friends I left behind are my fated mates, two of which are on the team, and the other is my shagard. I’m not ready to commit to one person, let alone three. And polyamorous relationships were banned on the planet long before my birth. But the three of them have grown from the cute boys I remember into sexy strangers.
It’s too bad I have a rule to never sleep with the racers I’m inspecting.

Subject’s sweet and spicy Kaddim Brothers spinoff series, Romance Tales from the Quadrants. 4 United features Eta, who escaped Ma’an with her moema just as her hair was starting to turn pink, her three childhood friends who grew up to be very sexy men, an unexpected assignment, fated mates, true love, and other family and friends getting involved to make sure the four of them get their happy ever after.

Enjoy an excerpt...
As I reached the steps, I glanced out across the tarmac. In the distance, I could see the shed my l’sida used for her delivery service, her competitor’s shed right beside hers. The same company Sakuunu used to work for before training to become a space racer. Deyal had been mad he hadn’t come to work for her poepa the way Nunki had, but when she’d lost only one pilot to the idea of becoming a space racer, she gloated that her competition had lost three.
At the bottom of the steps, several men rushed to meet those in front of me, quickly whisking them off in hovercars before I’d reached the ground.
The guy I’d seen in the photo waited for me. The one assigned to be my shagard. In the picture, I hadn’t seen any resemblance to the boy I once knew. But in person, when he smiled, I recognized him instantly. His deep dimples, almost like pockets, still appeared when he smiled, though his facial scruff shadowed them. And after so many star cycles, he still hadn’t lost his look of wide-eyed wonder. “Qamar, it’s so good to see you again.”
His grin widened as he opened his arms to me. “You, too, Eta. I can’t believe you’re here.”
I stepped into his embrace, surprised by the wave of grief that swept over me, at how much I wished I had been there to see him grow up. Especially with how fine of a grown man he had become. Suddenly, my fantasy flashed through my mind again, and I quickly stepped away from him. I couldn’t think of Qamar as anything other than the man assigned to keep me safe while traveling between my workplace and accommodations. I would be seeing him all the time. I couldn’t have fantasies about him. Not with him as part of my assignment. And especially not when he lived on Ma’an, a place I never planned to return to once I finished. Stars, I wished Rumi hadn’t mentioned anything about the three of them possibly being my fated mates.
“So, is it just you here to meet me?” I needed to learn more about what I would be doing before my mind went wild with other ideas. But I hadn’t meant to wash away Qamar’s smile.
“Sorry to disappoint you, but it’s only me.”
I gripped his bicep, all hard muscle though he didn’t flex. Stars, how could I not lust over him? “Oh, you’re not a disappointment. Not in the least. I haven’t received an itinerary though, so I’m not sure when I’m supposed to meet Chairman Lo’an. And the team.”
“Oh.” His cheeks reddened under his scruff. Absolutely adorable. Stars, aside from his appearance, he hadn’t changed much. “I’m supposed to take you to meet Kygan, the team coordinator, tomorrow morning. He’ll accompany you to your meeting with Chairman Lo’an after that. Until then, I’m to take you to your accommodations and make sure you have everything you need.”
