The year is 2056. Fire rages unchecked across the American countryside. Water rationing is a way of life. A new plague creeps across the land, an insidious degradation of cell function called Brown Death.
Lu Haverson stumbled across a cure for this malicious killer when he joined forces with Rae Stewart at her House of Rae, a pleasure house serving women. He loves bringing women the height of sexual pleasure, but even more he loves Rae. But he and Rae can't seem to get past their jealousies and power struggle.
It's the pleasure energy generated at the House that fuels the restorative powers that heal Brown Death, not only the flagship operation at Kansas City but in Rae's chain of houses across the nation. That's Lu's mission even if things never work out with Rae.
But now she's brought in this young buck, Josh Carter, a new hire who seems anything but eager to serve the House's female clientele. Lu's instincts tell him there's a lot more to this kid than what's on the surface, and he makes it his mission to find out more.
Rae resents the hell out of Lu's suspicions. She knows a hit when she sees it, and there's nothing more appealing to the House clientele than a potent young man so full of himself as Josh. Plus she personally finds him irresistible.
Trained since childhood to carry out the Brotherhood's mission, Josh hardly cares what this Lu guy thinks. If he has to sacrifice his moral standing to satisfy his boss Rae, he'll do it. The mission is the important thing, the mission to destroy her and her House.
About the Author
I love to write! Which is a good thing, because no matter what I'm doing, my brain edits sentences, selects or discards words, equivocates over paragraph formation. My file cabinet is stuffed with folders full of ideas, scenes, and half-finished work. My favorite part of writing is description. I want my readers to see, smell, hear, and feel what is going on in the story as if they are there. I can't think of many things as wonderful as those hours when words are pouring through my head and spilling out onto the page, creating a physical world full of passionate people! Other pursuits have taken up parts of my life--a technical profession for a career, children, questionable progress in learning to watercolor. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and time at the Pacific coast. Sunrise and sunset create special moods for me, the twilight between two worlds--fully of creative energy. Most of all, I love snuggling up with a good book.
