Tag Line: Why be tempted by one man’s seduction when you can be loved by three?

Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?


“Well, I’m not.” She could tell by their silence she’d surprised them. They obviously didn’t know a mind traveler could focus her attention in two places at once. “I’ve sent only my mind’s eye to see the target. My physical brain still works, and I’m very capable of hearing every snide remark you make.”

Drakker’s familiar snort of amusement made her smile.

“Good.” Logan’s tone was curt and without apology. “Then we don’t have to wait. Tell us what you’re seeing. Let’s get this over with.”

“I’ve taken cover behind a pillar in the government’s Combat Center. I didn’t expect to see active mind travelers here. I guess they figured I’d be by to see what they were doing. They think they’ve set a trap for me.”

“But you’re not there in the physical, so how can they trap you?” Logan asked.

“They’ve got three armed mind travelers active at this site. If they see me, they can hold my energy…trapping me there or—”


“Logan, energy is just as physical in this dimension as it is there.”

“Can they hurt you?” Logan’s concern kissed her heart and showed he did care. The thought brought warmth to her soul.

“If they discover me here, or shoot me with the weapons they’re armed with, yes.”

“How can we protect you?” Drakker’s deep tone made it evident he was concerned as well. Her heart swelled with conflicting emotions.

“You can’t.”

“Then get out of there.”

Was that stone-hearted Logan? Her heart fluttered knowing it was him. Perhaps she could find a common ground with him after all. “Repeat that…please.”

“I said…get out of there, and don’t lead them back here.”

“No, Logan, I won’t.” She checked the other mind travelers’ locations to be sure they hadn’t moved and couldn’t see her in her hidden position. “Hmm. I’ve never seen this before, but I’ve heard about them. Oh wow, it’s cool.”


“I’m seeing an NCR map for the first time.”

“What is it?”

She wasn’t sure who spoke. “It’s a raised three-dimensional holographic map. It shows real-life features of the land in colors and details. If you were blind, you could see it.”


“From what I’ve heard and am now seeing, the solidity of the hologram allows your hand to move up over mountains and down into valleys. Not only can you feel the different textures of the trees, but the NCR allows you to feel the temperatures of the rivers, lakes, and oceans. If the mountain is high enough, you can feel the snow atop it.” She drew a breath. “Hmm. It’s quite apparent…when activated, those near the NCR can feel active real-time weather conditions over different areas of the map. Oh!” She giggled. “The guy I’m watching just got his finger zapped by lightning. Idiot. He can see the thunderstorms over those mountains. He shouldn’t have stuck his hand in there. From what I can see in this dimension, a blind man can even see colors in his mind when looking at this map…it vibrates the color-wave frequencies right through you. Essentially, if you can’t see, you can still read this map.”

“Great. Don’t tell me they have our mountain range up.”

“I wish I could follow your orders, Logan, but—”

“They do?”

“Yes, but the good news is they’re not focused on that area right now. I think they’re talking about an area where they think my ship went down.”

“Crap!” Logan swore as the sound of someone pushing out of a chair reached her. “Why can’t you hear them so we know for sure?”

“I can’t get close enough to hear because I’ll be seen by the other mind travelers. They’re positioned there on purpose to keep me away. Wait a minute. I see a messenger coming in. He’s reporting the fighter’s interaction with Arlo and me when we were in the valley.” She grimaced before letting out a sharp breath. “And now, they’re focusing on the mountain range.”

“Shit! I need a brandy.”
