Trisha is now assigned to Homeland to care for the humans and New Species that have been freed. She sees 415 and he goes by Slade now. She is disappointed when Slade does not recognize her. (Come on he was on a lot of drugs and just rescued from a facility where he was tortured for about 30 years, I think she could have given him a pass on that one.) Slade and Trisha exchange snide comments and later when things with Slade turn to insulting for Trisha she spills it about the hospital. Slade has dreamed of that woman for awhile now and can't believe he did not recognize her. Now he blew it and chooses to stay away from Trisha.
Trisha and Slade are thrown together again when Justice is having her moved to help him with a new project and their lives are now in danger. Trisha becomes dependent on Slade and they become close for the short amount of time they are being hunted by the hate-group-humans. Things get a bit steamy between Trisha and Slade and she feels the relationship will continue after they are rescued back at Homeland.
They get back to Homeland and after a meeting with Justice, Slade realizes that Trisha is a target if they are together. He feels she will be safer without a New Species boyfriend and abandons her. He starts on a project for Justice that takes him to a new facility called Reservation where other New Species will live. These New Species are ones that are a little less human looking or do not want to be around humans at all.
Trisha and Brass become close when Brass is assigned to guard her. Trisha finds out some important news that she needs to share with Justice ASAP and is then escorted to the Reservation facility with Brass, Harley, and Moon as guard to protect her. She is #1 priority now. Slade is upset until he understands why Trisha is there and begs for forgiveness. Trisha is told why Slade left and understands his reasons but they try to work it out.
We are introduced to Viliant and he is a pretty interesting character. This character makes me wish I could see a picture of the man the author describes he would be very intense I'm sure. I believe he must be part Lion with the description given.
All of these books are very interesting with the description of the characters. Of course I love the Alpha male part of it being that they are mixed with animal DNA, it makes sense. And also, I think any woman would swoon over a boyfriend that would also be a bodyguard, eye candy, and sex God.....
