Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Ashwin Malhotra is a Makhai soldier - genetically engineered to be cold, ruthless. Unfeeling. His commanding officers consider him the perfect operative, and they're right. Now, he has a simple mission: to infiltrate Gideon's Riders, the infamous sect of holy warriors that protects the people of Sector One.  

He's never failed to execute an objective, but there's one thing he didn't anticipate: running into Dr. Kora Bellamy, the only woman to ever break through his icy exterior.  

When Kora fled her life as a military doctor for the Makhai Project, all she wanted was peace - a quiet life where she could heal the sick and injured. The royal Rios family welcomed her like a sister, but she could never forget Ashwin. His sudden reappearance is a second chance - if she can manage to touch his heart.  

When the simmering tension between them finally ignites, Kora doesn't realize she's playing with fire. Because she's not just falling in love with a man who may not be able to love her back. Ashwin has too many secrets - and one of them could destroy her.  

Contains mature themes.

Great Narrated Version

I’ve bought the ebooks as they have been released, but I’m so glad you had audio versions recorded. I’m spoiled on listening while I read (although this isn’t synced with the kindle edition yet-lazy me, I have to manually swipe for the next page as I listen) 😝 Thank you both for writing such engaging series. That includes the Beyond series as well as Gideon’s Riders. I was super disappointed when Beyond ended but I’m very happy with this spinoff and even happier that you found a good versatile narrator to read it. She does a great job. Kudos!!!! And please please keep them coming. When sector 1 is done give us another sector (8 or 2 maybe) or the mountain area or really anywhere else in this amazing post-apocalyptic world you both have created!! HIGHLY recommended but if you’re new to this author collaboration, then be sure to start with the Beyond series. Beyond Shame is book 1.

There's no place like the Sectors!

Ashwin hits all the right notes for a complicated love story in a complicated place. The development of both main characters through all their relationships kept me engaged from start to finish. #devotion #postapocalypse #societymaking #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
