Desire is an addiction that could destroy them all.
The second son.
Lieutenant Commander Jace Harrow is the second son of House Morningstar—the spare, not the heir. Armored with an arrogant mask, Jace keeps the world at arm’s length to protect those around him from becoming targets for his bloodthirsty brother.
The broken sword.
Lieutenant Bryn Viera was a shadow sword and a decorated officer, dedicated to protecting her people. But for the past five years she has lived as a slave and has the scars to prove it. Bryn vowed to escape or die trying—until she met Sabine.
Born into slavery, Sabine never expected to fall in love. Her feelings for Bryn sparked her desire for a new life, but now Sabine is in phase, consumed by the need to mate with a male. Her dream of freedom with Bryn is on the brink of destruction, for to deny the phase means death.
Thrown together by the unforgiving demands of the phase, they must unite to save Cyprena’s people from a deadly new bioweapon—or be destroyed by the scars of their pasts.
Warning: Contains an arrogant officer with a weakness for having his hair pulled, an insatiable empath, and a badass warrior woman who form a male-female-female threesome sizzling enough to melt your shields.
Bryn gave up on meditation, too distracted by her healing wound to concentrate and afraid that she would simply fall into an exhausted sleep. The injury was now an aching bruise, as though she had been kicked instead of shot. Not bad, but it was irritating. She stretched out on a divan, a data pad in one hand as the other rested on her pistol. Not that she expected another attack so soon, but she thought it best to be prepared.
The doors opened, and her brow rose. “Who hit you? The brother or Lieutenant Loren? Or both?”
Jace grimaced, rubbing his jaw. “Just Loren. Where’s Andee?”
“Babysitting Malcolm. Why does Loren hate you?” she asked. Bryn holstered her weapon and set the data pad down.
“Later.” Jace sat beside her on the divan and leaned in close to kiss her, but she poked him in the chest.
“No. I want an answer. Then I’ll consider allowing you to ravish me. But not out here. We’d traumatize your poor sister if she came back and was greeted by the sight of your ass in the air.”
A growl rumbled from his chest, and his mouth claimed hers. He kissed her until she yielded, and then he swept her into his arms and carried her into the bedroom.
“Damn it, Jace. I asked you a question,” she said. Jace set her down and Sabine pounced. She stripped Bryn of her weapons belt and new jacket, and then scowled at the armor beneath it. “And you were supposed to be sleeping.”
“I wasn’t tired. How do you get this off?” Sabine complained.
“It’s not coming off. We can’t all be naked,” Bryn countered. “I’m supposed to be protecting you.”
