You must have read my mind.
It’s something I say to my husband all the time. We’ve been together for so long, that we just know each other that well. He can tell by the look on my face if I’m happy or upset. And when he asks me a question, he can usually get a feel for my answer just by how long I pause before speaking. This is the real world, though, so of course he can’t really read my mind.
But what if he could? Sometimes I think it’d make things easier. Certain things are just easier thought than said. You know why you need something done a certain way but you just can’t quite put it in words. Other times I think it would be disastrous. Because, let’s face it, as much as you love a person there are times they’re going to be upset and have not so nice thoughts about you. Or what if they see those fantasies that you’re keeping a secret?
So what if a person could read other people’s minds? Could they ever hope to find love? Those were the questions I asked myself when I wrote Subservience. Harlow is a Subservient. A government geneticist created her to serve the military’s needs. Her particular ability is she can read people’s minds. And since most people know this, they have a hard time being around her. But not Parker. He loves being near her from the moment he steps onto her ship.
Can they make it work? I’ve found that where there’s a will there’s a way. But first they’re going to have to save Harlow’s ship, The Tempest. And figure out why someone’s trying to sabotage its mission.
Universal Defiance, Book Five
Harlow is a Subservient, created to serve the military’s needs. Even though her kind’s been freed and she’s managed to become a military captain, she still struggles with relating to humans, many of whom hate or fear her. So when a hot new navigator comes aboard her ship and she can’t stop imagining him naked above her, she has no idea how to handle the pleasurable distraction.
Parker is a genetically engineered soldier, modified to be the strongest, brightest and fastest. But not even he is strong enough to fight the pull between him and his new captain.
As their attraction grows and the affair deepens, they have to work together to stop a political coup. If they fail, Harlow will lose the ship she loves. Parker doesn’t know if she’s capable of sharing his feelings, but he’s willing to risk it all to protect her.
