Book 2 of the New Humanity series is a thrilling adventure of murder, kidnapping, civil war, and the quest for true love. You will hold your breath as Leah and De Leon risk it all to find their place in a new world, free of slavery and the threat of reprogramming, where their happily-ever-after is more than a wish and a dream.

Fleeing slavery and the threat of reprogramming, the Wit lovers De Leon and Leah agree to undertake a dangerous journey through the desert to meet The Mother.

Their guide and captor, La Hoya, refuses to answer Leah’s questions about the mysterious, messiah-like figure, and it’s clear to her there’s something sinister going on. A sinthete, she can sense both La Hoya’s attraction to her and De Leon’s fear. She can also sense her lover is throwing a wall up between them, although she can’t figure out why.

It’s clear La Hoya has his own agenda. And while Leah’s abilities as a sinthete could prove crucial to soldiers in the war for Wit freedom, she can see he’s determined to find a way to use them at any cost—even if the price includes De Leon’s murder.

Days after leaving her old life behind, the clock is already ticking on her ability to adapt. Will Leah discover how to use her powers in time, or will her lover die at her own hands?

As part of the lowest subclass of society, she submits to a human handler who owns her, body and mind. De Leon is the rising star of the Copy Leagues, a no-holds-barred fighting organization for genetically altered and technologically augmented Wits. His past is dark and his future uncertain, but with enough wins, he just might be able to break free of his bondage to his trainer and enjoy life as a citizen of New Dallas. Neither of them expected to fall in love, but when her handler begins to bring Leah to the fights, a secret and dangerous relationship blossoms, one that threatens both of their lives.

A hard-drinking, card playing, tough as nails cowboy meets a dark-haired, maybe Indian princess, beauty who just might be his undoing. Gambling, gun smoke, wild secrets, a marshal bent on justice, and shifters in love—strap on your spurs and hold onto your hats!

It’s a well-accepted fact that gunpoint confessions aren’t always honest.

Maybe that’s why when Dickey, a known liar, swears there’s an “Indian princess” in the back of his wagon, Cole Rede doesn’t believe him. Then Cole gets word that Rooster, a crooked federal marshal, is hot on his trail. With the prospect of a noose looming on the horizon, he grabs the wagon and takes off.

He’s not expecting the mysterious beauty on the verge of death—or the way she makes him feel, waking up old, feral urges he’s kept under wraps since the very murder that put him in Rooster’s sights. He needs to push Sarah away, and fast, or risk putting them both in danger.

Trouble is, he can’t. And when Rooster finally catches up with them both, Cole's going to have to choose between protecting himself, his identity, and everything he’s ever known—or the woman he loves.
