    Segment Three

    Isaac Asimov once predicted that in 2019 we'd be on the moon mining. While that prediction didn't exactly come true, that's not stopping some from attempting to get rick from moon rocks. Pretend you're an intern and decide to steal some rocks that are out of this world!

    Special thanks to Katherine Garbera! Check out her Space Cowboys series:

    ### No Limits
    *Some cowboys are outta this world… *

    Astronaut Jason "Ace" McCoy tried to escape Cole's Hill, Texas—and the memory of Molly Tanner's dark eyes and strawberry-scented hair—among the stars. Now he and Molly have jointly inherited her father's struggling ranch. And having failed his latest medical tests, Ace is on leave—maybe forever.

    He's determined to sort things out with the ranch and get back to Houston as soon as possible. What he isn't counting on is that Molly's only gotten more beautiful over the years. He can't promise anything as long as there's a chance to go on another mission. But even in orbit, this attraction has no rules…and no limits.

    ### Pushing the Limits
    *"Houston, we have a hot-astronaut problem…" *

    Survival expert and control freak Jessie Odell has faced the most hazardous environments on earth. Training astronauts should be a cakewalk. Nope. Enter candidate Hemi "Thor" Barrett.

    Hemi isn't just some distraction. Jessie actually likes the guy—and that makes him more treacherous than an Everest ascent. It also means Hemi's that much harder to resist. With every hungry, heat-fueled encounter, Jessie skirts closer to that dangerous edge. Falling for this space cowboy is definitely high stakes…but could the payoff be worth the risk?

    ### Beyond the Limits
    This mission is out of control…

    Astronaut Isabelle Wolsten fought like hell to be one of the final candidates for the CRONUS mission to space. She can't afford to be distracted by teammate Antonio "Playboy" Curzon.

    When the two astronauts are put in direct competition for a top spot on the mission, they'll be tested beyond their limits. Getting involved with Antonio is dangerous—but not nearly as dangerous as the feelings Izzy's starting to have for him. With everything she's fought for on the line, falling for this space cowboy might just ground Izzy's dreams for good…
