Coping in a post-apocalyptic world, on a planet far from Earth, Pearl is mated with Pak Lin, son of Pak Song, Obsidion's renowned cyborg maker.
Pearl wanted her lust satisfied, and Lin possesses the tools--and the sexbots--to make that happen. But Pearl finds she wants more than sex from the man whose only passion seems to lie in creating ever more realistic sexbots, whose lack of emotion mirrors that of their maker.
Only when Pearl coaxes half forgotten memories from her stoic mate can she awaken emotions Lin has kept under wraps for fear of loving someone--and losing them as he lost his childhood pet and his mother.
Adapted from a novella, Pearl of Passion, first published by Changeling Press.
About the Author
First published in 1996 Ann has sold over 100 romance novels, novellas and short stories to publishers including Berkley, Kensington, Loose Id, Changeling and more. Recently she has begun a new venture, self-publishing. Her first nonfiction book, SELF-EDITING FOR WRITERS,was released early this year, along with original and heavily revised romance novels and boxed sets.
Romance is Ann's first love, and 2015 will mark the year she returns to her roots: the sensual, heartwarming love stories about hot, Alpha heroes and the strong women who inspire their love. Her books are divided between these and frankly erotic romances, which for the most part feature one man and one woman--but with fantasy story worlds and/or BDSM elements that take them out of the realm of mainstream romance.
