Nadia is your typical sidekick. She funny, somewhat bumbling, always there for you when you need her, and sometimes when you don't. In a roundabout way. she introduced Gage to Tern as she suggested Gage check out Tern's shop when he was looking for a gift for his mother. Nadia and Gage both work for the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where Nadia is a math professor. She has a head for figures and a body to match.
A lover of romance novels, Nadia is always hoping her knight will appear and sweep off her feet and since Tern is no longer with Lucky, Nadia is hoping to hook up with him as this following scene shows.
"No way." Tern folded her arms over her chest as if that would help protect her heart. "If he couldn’t tell me then, I don’t want to hear it now."
"Yes, you do. It’s been eating you up inside." Nadia cocked a hip. "Ever think that maybe this is fate?"
"Fate isn’t this sick."
"Oh, I don’t know. It paired me with Lucky." A smile she tried to hide gave her away.
"As if that wasn’t who you wanted to be with anyway."
She shrugged. "He’s the most fun of the bunch. There’s an unfair ratio of men to women, and since they’ve all had a taste of you, it’s up to me to protect myself from being passed around." Nadia laughed at Tern's expression. "Come on, get over it, and let’s have some fun. Think of the havoc you can cause Gage. Get back at him for his mistreatment of you."
"Hey, you wouldn’t mind if Lucky and I hooked up, would you?"
"Uh…" Nadia and Lucky? He’d break her heart. "Be careful, Nadia. He isn’t the kind of man who sticks around."
"My favorite. Use ‘em and abuse ‘em." Nadia gave a sly smile. "Time for the games to begin."
