Book Three

Special Ops soldier Deo Lazitter has spent a year with the enemy in a cell no bigger than a shower stall. Surviving on what little food was tossed down to him once a day, he wonders if he'll ever get his former strength back. Thanks to his sister, Darina, and his best friend, Ghared, he now has the opportunity to try, but does he no longer know how to live on the outside?

Genetically engineered therapist Dr. Linsey Cadmen is happy to finally be a true citizen. Most of her life has been spent hiding in the shadows, but everything is different now. She's free. No one wishes to dismantle her because of her genetic flaws. She has the same rights as natural-born humans in a world that is slowly getting back on its feet after a global unplug and a widespread plague. But will she ever stop looking over her shoulder, waiting to be caught?

When Deo shows up in her office needing her counsel, Linsey finds herself wanting to be caught in a whole different sense of the word. Can she heal his wounds? Can he accept her for what she is? Can they make each other feel secure enough to risk their hearts?

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 against all evils.
