If you haven’t read any of my Badari Warriors series: Genetically engineered soldiers of the far future, the Badari were created by alien enemies to fight humans. But then the scientists kidnapped an entire human colony from the Sectors to use as subjects in twisted experiments…the Badari and the humans made common cause, rebelled and escaped the labs. Now they live side by side in a sanctuary valley protected by a powerful Artificial Intelligence, and wage unceasing war on the aliens.
The excerpt – skipping ahead. Flo has gotten to the island and she and the other women are about to meet the Badari there. Her mission involves finding the incognito Alpha, Daegan. (Aydarr is the Alpha of the northern pack, who sent Flo on this mission.)
Flo reviewed what she’d been told her about the Alpha who was strictly undercover. Her intent was to identify him and attach herself to his side, and then proceed from there as far as evaluating what to tell him and when.
The room was like a pavilion, open on three sides under a rustic-looking thatched roof, with benches scattered here and there. Flo paused, taking in the chaotic scene. There were easily sixty Badari already gathered in the space and the men were an overwhelming presence. Quickly she scanned the crowd but didn’t see anyone she thought fit the description of the Alpha. A few men were sitting on benches along the sides and her gaze kept returning to one man, all by himself. His long black hair blew in the breeze and his face was a blank mask as he watched the women.
That’s an Alpha.
She couldn’t have said exactly why she was so sure except this one soldier reminded her of Aydarr. There was a sensation of immense power contained for the moment but ready to be unleashed.
The book’s blurb: DAEGAN: A BADARI WARRIORS SCIFI ROMANCE NOVEL
Ex-Special Forces soldier and mercenary Flo Michetti is bored with her assignment as a pilot for the genetically engineered Badari pack in their fight against the evil Khagrish scientists. She jumps at the chance to take a dangerous undercover mission. She infiltrates a group of human prisoners on their way to a secret lab in the southern ocean, where the Badari believe many more of their own kind have been created and are being experimented on. Once Flo has located the lab, found the Alpha among the Badari there and sent a report back, the plan will be to attack and rescue all the prisoners.
Arriving at the island Flo learns the true nature of the horrific experiment for which the humans have been brought to this remote location. Time will be perilously short to escape before it’s too late for all of them. She has to locate the Alpha of this captive southern pack, who conceals his identity to escape death at the hands of the Khagrish, and get him to join with her and her allies.
Daegan feels an instant attraction to Flo when the Badari and the humans are forced together by the Khagrish scientists, but there are mysteries and questions surrounding her. Before he reveals himself as the incognito Alpha she’s seeking, he wants answers to allay his doubts. He also wants Flo in his bed…but can he risk his heart to claim her as his mate?
Complicating the situation is a dangerous rival for Daegan’s position as Alpha, an oncoming hurricane and Flo’s resistance to abandoning her life as a soldier of fortune…as the Khagrish scientists prepare to initiate the experiment, the clock is ticking for humans and Badari alike.
