In a future society dominated by women, The Shareem are
designed for sexual fulfillment. These enhanced males
specialize in bringing women to ecstasy and have been
programmed to perform at one of three levels. Level one
offers pure sensual pleasure. Level two provides games and
wicked fun. Level three is the ultimate barbarian. Tall,
muscular, and beautiful, The Shareem are designed to be
pleasing to the eyes as well as the body.
Lady Talan d'Urvey is seeking enlightenment. Adopted into
high society she is ready to take a vow of celibacy. But
after discovering the diary of a woman who spent one
blissful week with a Shareem, Talan sets out to experience
for herself what pleasure of the flesh feels like. When
her research leads her to Rees, she finds herself drawn to
him immediately. She knows right away she wants him for
Rees is not your standard issue Shareem. Born of a unique
experiment, he is all three levels in one. Deemed unstable
and dangerous, his programmers abandoned the experiment and
feared Rees' unpredictable nature. Now that he is free,
Rees has managed to hide in plain sight -- Though Rees
himself isn't quite sure what he is capable of should he
ever lose control.
Allyson James has created a futuristic series that will
have readers wishing for a time machine! Rees and Talan
set the pages ablaze as one of the most perfectly matched
pairs this reader has come across. This first book of the
series does not disappoint. Not only will readers find the
Shareem deeply satisfying, these hot men will leave them
panting for more.
