With nothing but rumors to lead her, Lynne Harmony has trekked across a nightmare landscape to find one man—a mysterious, damaged legend who protects the weak and leads the strong. He's more than muscle and firepower—and in post-plague L.A., he's her only hope. As the one woman who could cure the disease, Lynne is the single most volatile—and vulnerable—creature in this new and ruthless world. But face to face with Jax Mercury…
Danger has never looked quite so delicious…
Before the Scorpius Syndrome tore through North America and nearly wiped out the population, Vivienne Wellington was the FBI's best profiler. The bacteria got her anyway. But she survived. She recovered. And when she woke up from a drug-nightmare of captivity, her skills as a hunter of men had gone from merely brilliant to full-on uncanny.
Her mysterious rescuer wants her to put them to the test. But no matter how tempting he is, with his angel's eyes and devil's tongue, Vinnie knows she shouldn’t trust him.
If the FBI were still around they would rate Raze Shadow as one of the bad guys. His military training can't wipe out his association with the Mercenaries, the most feared gang in a thousand miles. His loyalties are compromised. He won't even tell Vinnie his real name. But there's no FBI in the new America of fear and firepower, only instinct and risk. And the way his arms wrap around Vinnie tells its own story. Whatever else Raze is concealing, he can't hide his desire . . .
Before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Tace Justice was a good ole Texas cowboy who served his country and loved his mama. After Scorpius, the world became dark, dangerous, and deadly... and so did he. The Vanguard medic is stronger, faster, and smarter than before, but he's lost the line between right and wrong. His passion is absolute, and when he focuses it on one woman, there's no turning back for either of them.
Sami Steel has been fighting to survive right alongside Tace, convincing the Vanguard soldiers she's one of them. In truth, Sami is a former hacker turned government agent who worked at The Bunker, where scientists stored both contaminants and cures. Only she knows the location, and she's not telling. Yet when sexual fire explodes between her and Tace, she'll face even that hell again to save him.
Absolutely loved reading these books! The short story in On the Hunt have us a look at what the world was like during the initial outbreak of Scorpius, but then these books start off when the world has been decimated, and there are more survivors than uninfected people out there!
There was a quote in Justice, "Loss had become a constant in the post-Scorpius world" which showcases how violent things have become-and something about these men and women who were surviving! Loved it!
I loved how these books were interlocked! One book lead to another, and the conflict kept becoming more and more, in what it was threatening, and how it was being threatening! What with the President being a Ripper and how there's not much of a country left, and trying to cure or at least survive as a species with Scorpius! It was just so fantastic!
These alpha guys do things that are kinda frowned in society today. But in this world, society has basically crumbled, so things are different! I wouldn't want some of what they do, but I'd like the rest! Because these guys are very strong and passionate!
I can't wait for another book or 3, because there's now 3 different potential future couples and stories! And hopefully pulling in Nora and Deacan in, because they've only been mentioned in these 3 books!
