Book One

The year is 2025. A techhead terrorist group called the Anarch has unplugged the world. While the globe struggles to get out of the darkness, a chemist, Dr. Mikale Warres-bitter about his dismissal from one of the world's most successful corporations, Emerge Tech-unleashes a plague that turns human organs to ash. He hopes to wipe out the population and restart it.

Only one scientist, Dr. Foster Ashby, can find the cure. He's been searching for it, but it remains just out of reach. Warres knows Foster is close to stopping his plans for the globe and decides Foster must die. Immediately.

Officer Darina Lazitter is assigned to protect Foster after he takes too long in the city getting samples of Warres's disease. The job is simple-get Foster safely back behind Emerge Tech's walls. Shielding him from her heart, however, is proving harder than shielding him from the enemy.

About the Author

Christine DePetrillo tried not being a writer. She attempted to ignore the voices in her head, but they would not stop. The only way she could achieve peace and quiet was to write the stories the voices demanded. Today, she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.

She lives in Rhode Island and occasionally Vermont with her husband, two cats, and a big, black German Shepherd who defends her fiercely from all evils.

Such a great story! Set in 2025, earth has been hit by terrorist attacks and a deadly virus. Foster has the ability to fight the virus but he needs protection from the people who want to stop him. Darina is a tough cop who will do whatever it takes to protect Foster and her family. I don't read science fiction, ever, but I am so glad I grabbed this book. It is at heart a romance novel, just set in the future. Highly recommended!
