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.
Time passed in calm quiet, with only the measured whisper of her breath and the familiar hiss of ventilation systems. Then a new noise interrupted from the direction of the entrance, and Bryn’s brow furrowed as she strained to identify it. It was high-pitched, almost whining, with irregular clicks and whirrs—someone was hacking the lock on the door. She drew her pistol and fired into the door lock, and the bolt melted the device shut. Whoever was outside would have to manually bypass it and force it open.
Retreating into the bedroom, she brought the lights up and locked the door.
“What’s going on?” Jace asked, no doubt roused by the gunfire.
“Someone’s hacking the main entrance. Get in the closet, both of you.” Bryn glanced at the furniture in the room, and decided to relocate a chair and footstool in front of the doors. It wouldn’t work as a barricade or cover, but it might slow their attackers down for a moment. Long enough for Bryn to get an extra shot in.
“Give me your pistol,” Jace said.
Bryn shook her head. “No. Get yours, and get in the closet. Now.” He scowled, and she glared at him as she moved furniture. “Jace. I need you to protect her, so I can protect you. Trust me.”
With a growl he scooped Sabine into his arms and carried her off. She murmured a question, still half-asleep—not surprising, considering how enthusiastically the pair had been going at it earlier. Bryn locked them in, found herself a place with cover and a clear shot at the bedroom door, and crouched behind the desk.
