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.
Read an Exclusive Excerpt:
With only one good arm, Bryn didn’t argue when Jace helped her remove her armor. Each piece went into the bin, followed by her weapons. She cursed in Cy’reni as Soth wrenched her shoulder back into place with a sickening pop that sounded worse than the pain felt.
Soth had no problem stripping the rest of the way and striding to the shower—most former slaves were used to nudity. Bryn struggled out of the rest of her clothes with Jace’s continued aid. His brow furrowed as he glanced at the rest of the team as though waiting for one of them to make a move on Bryn.
“Hey.” Bryn tilted his face up until he met her gaze, and she tapped the mate marks on her throat. “Property of Najacen Harrow. Doesn’t matter if they sneak a peek. You’re the only one who gets to enjoy this ride. Well, you and Sabine.” Jace nodded and relaxed slightly.
Soth snickered under the shower. “Does that mean I get to look?” he asked.
“Commander, I’m sure you’ve seen more than enough breasts. You really don’t need to see mine,” Bryn replied.
“No such thing as enough breasts,” Soth countered.
Jace growled again, and Bryn kissed him. “Ignore him. He’s baiting you, and just blowing off steam.”
“I don’t like it.”
“That’s the point.” Bryn smiled dryly, and then she sobered. “You came back for me,” she said switching to Cy’reni. She didn’t want their human comrades or the Alliance officials monitoring them to overhear this conversation. Jace quirked a brow. “You could have left me behind.”
“Never,” he replied, also in Cy’reni. Jace took her hand and pressed her fingers to his mate marks. “Property of Brynnaren Viera.”
