Cursoi are a military order gifted with supernatural skills, devoted to protect the life of the president of the United Terrestrial Democracy. Naira resents them almost as much as she despises newly elected president Crash, an arrogant, hateful bigot. When Naira discovers herself Cursoi, she turns her dismay into a new resolution: infiltrate the Cursoi and undermine the president, but is Crash the real issue?

Things complicate since Naira falls for fellow soldier Drama, whose skill is empathy. Before Drama can uncover Naira’s ploy and deliver her to Lethal, the entitled Cursoi whose skill is crushing people’s organs, the unthinkable happens. Naira and Lethal “link” now sharing each other’s consciousness. Naira’s secrets are uncovered…but so are Lethal’s. The two archenemies will have to find some common ground if they want to save their own lives…and the president’s.

Funny, sexy, and fast-paced, this addictive novel reminds us that we cannot fight anger with anger. It’s time to sit back and take a cathartic trip to the United Terrestrial Democracy

(warning: a couple of “open-door bedroom” scenes)

~Editor’s Pick~

Braeden’s never had to question anything before. He’s always been popular, always had everything handed to him, and always been straight.

Then he met Jeffrey Young. Quiet, studious, analytical … a guy.

Falling for Jeff ultimately resulted in Braeden’s expulsion. Now he’s questioning everything. Like if he can handle his pill-abusing mother and ruthlessly enabling father much longer. If he’s protecting his siblings out of selfless motivations. If he belongs with Jeff, now his boyfriend. Jeff’s less-than-straight friends are skeptical of his sexuality as well, which isn’t assuaging any of Braeden’s fears.

As his connection to Jeff deepens quicker than expected, Braeden has to face the question he’s been avoiding for weeks: what is he supposed to do with a guy?

~Editor’s Pick~

With Jeff Young’s fantastic grades, he should be a great tutor. But he’s terrible with human interaction. “You’re an asshole,” is not a unique phrase to him. Jeff’s all right with that. His past proves most people are assholes.

Even with his reputation, he takes it too far when he uses a textbook to save the track star, Braeden, from a goose attack. Braeden is everything Jeff is not. Tall. Charming. Has 20/20 vision. And would never, ever wipe his mouth after a girl kisses him.

Braeden insists on getting to know Jeff. Jeff vacillates between wanting to know him and wanting to punch him in the mouth. Then he discovers the darkness rippling beneath Braeden’s deceptively easy-going persona. As Braeden confides his secrets, Jeff does the one thing that’s socially suicidal:

He falls in love with the very popular, very straight Braeden Britely.
