Isbel Kensington's lack of paranormal Talent makes her unique, especially given her powerful paranormal family who run the planet Delmorna. Isbel's studies into ancient diseases uncover an old family secret which threatens the stability of the government run by Isbel's devious sister Dru.
Cyrus Durant is a cloned human and undercover cop who has to act as Isbel's Paid Male during her research holiday. He has to get close to her and determine if she's involved in Dru’s treasonous plots. Cyrus has never been this close to a woman. The experience is overwhelming, especially when he and Isbel start to form an intimate psychic bond.
As Isbel's research unearths the truth about the planet's history, she and Cyrus become targets in a deadly political struggle. In a final confrontation with her family, Isbel finds out just how deeply blood ties run -- and how easily they can be severed.
Dru Delaney, one of the planetary Leaders of Delmorna, doesn’t quite trust Jak Exo, her co-Leader. Exo is too handsome, too kind, and too intelligent for the strong-willed Dru.
When he announces he’s leaving to explore the uncharted Northern continent, Dru decides to go with him to keep a closer eye on the man. But what they find on that continent is more than just a lost civilization: they find passion, duplicity, and living proof of a secret that will shake the government and their society. Now Dru has to escape with her life – and her heart – intact …
Dru Delaney has her work cut out for her: save a hidden race of humans from a deadly virus, stabilize her shaky government, thwart a merciless woman’s scheme to take over the leadership, and avoid Jak Exo – her lover, her enemy, and a man-machine ‘blend’.
Along the way she may have to fight a war, adopt a small child, be kidnapped and escape … and discover her own humanity among the cloned humans she’s vowed to help. It may take a leap of faith for her to finally trust Jak again and aid him in saving their planet.
