    Summary

    “Damn it,” Alex grumbles, kicking at an empty chair until it skids across the floor. “Come on, guys. There has to be someone who can go undercover. Any woman under 30 at this bureau who can put on some makeup and twirl in a circle.”

    And then all eyes, inexplicably, go to Kara.

    “Who?” Kara asks, looking back and forth between Alex and Vasquez and surreptitiously brushing the Cheeto dust from her pants. “Who is it, guys?”

    But Alex and Vasquez just keep staring at her silently, matching grins on their faces, and after a few seconds the horrible truth dawns on her. Kara blinks, looking down at herself and then back up at them.

    “But…I’m 31?”

    To help her sister foil an attack on the Miss United States pageant, Kara needs to go undercover. There’s only one problem – she’s never been ladylike a day in her life. What starts as a reluctant favour leads Kara to real friendship, growth, and Lena Luthor, all under the watchful eye of the pageant spotlight.

    Summary

    When Lena meets Kara, a soldier home on leave as she waits for her next deployment, at a local coffee shop one afternoon, her life is completely tipped upside down in an instant. As they start talking, Lena feels drawn to Kara; there's something about her warmth and openness that fills the gap left by Lena's troubled childhood.

    Growing closer over the next few months, falling fast for each other, the two of them find themselves unable to stay away, but Kara's next deployment is inevitable, and with promises that she'll come home, Lena waits for her.
