Born as a military experiment TM 05637 was the only one to survive gestation and birth. He began training the moment he could hold a weapon and fire.  Dr. Paul Anderson, a brilliant genetic scientist was hired by the Company and conducted the DNA experiments under the supervision of General Woodard to create super soldiers at an undisclosed location in the desert.  They called it the Facility.  Over time Dr. Anderson became Father Paul to TM 05637, and more importantly the good doctor began to regret the lack of human emotion in TM 05637.  The scientist figured out a way for TM 05637 to escape and hopefully experience a real life.

 

If Tim hadn’t been concerned for his lover David Conley they wouldn’t have been captured by General Woodard.  On the run for months it was an act of human kindness which pointed the way for Woodard and his team to recapture their quarry.

 

Returned to the Facility Tim is drugged and coerced into fighting again though he continually resists his previous training and refuses to kill.  Meanwhile his lover
David is also being held in a sterile room where his only visitor is Woodard who delights in verbally tormenting the quiet businessman.  Kept in a room next to the incarcerated scientist David listens as Father Paul tells him of Tim’s horrific childhood.

 

Risking it all, Tim and David with Father Paul’s help take their shot at freedom.  Their lives teeter on a hope and the desire to be free once and for all.  To live and love in peace.

 

To Be Loved is the chilling, dynamic sequel to the powerful To Be Human.  The real possibility of experiments like Tim make for a thrilling, action packed story.  This tale manages to ring a potent emotional bell.  Tim and David’s love permeates To Be Loved.  It is their love which keeps this story going.  As for Paul, his cold demeanor allows for cracks of humanity which gives To Be Loved another interesting layer.  Heart wrenching drama and suspense from start to finish, To Be Loved is a terrific sequel.  It isn’t necessary, but the books should be read in order.

Designation TM 05637 is born to fulfill a military purpose.  At the same time other boys his age are drawing stick people and starting kindergarten TM 05637 is learning to fire automatic weapons.  His entire life is controlled, from the bland nutrition he’s fed to heavy weapons and physical training, as well as studying military strategy and tactics.

General Woodard commands his entire life and doesn’t allow human emotion to jeopardize his pet project.

 

Over the years of his existence the good little soldier ironically bonds with Dr. Paul Anderson, the scientist who created him.  Secret discussions on morality, concepts of right and wrong, his creator becomes Father Paul to TM 05637.  The scientist in Father Paul is thrilled with his results while the humanity in him regrets many things.  In a valiant effort to change his creation’s bleak, robotic future Father Paul helps TM 05637 escape from the Facility.

 

Once free Tim is barely able to function in the real world.  If not for the kindness of a lonely store owner Tim wouldn’t have been able to evade the Facility’s secret manhunt or survived at all.  They’d invested billions in his development and won’t stop until he’s under their control again.  They certainly never expected Tim to develop emotional ties to others or feelings of love and commitment.  Their killer robot is loose and changing by the moment.  Getting him back is imperative, but what will they do when their robot is now Tim?

 

Like a newly budding flower unfurls it’s petals to the sun, so too does TM 05637 evolve into nineteen year old Tim within the powerful tale To Be Human.  Other than his dramatic escape from the Facility the beginning is dry and clinical like TM 05637 himself.  But the more people Tim becomes involved with and interacts with the more he blossoms and the story builds beautifully from there.  Poignant and intense, To Be Human will have readers rooting for Tim and the people in his life.  The ending is a cliffhanger so be ready for some frustration.  Having said that, To Be Human shouldn’t be missed and hopefully the next book is just as good.  This one is all heart.

The lawless planet of Geren is the perfect place for assassin Morgan Reid to thrive.  Accepting his latest job is going to be a problem however when he learns the name of his target.  Morgan is meant to kill the man he never stopped loving.

 

Ousted leader of the Syndicate, Joren is running for his life with his brilliant scientist brother Ashley Mracek and his lover, starship Captain Carter Therres in tow.  Assassination is the last thing on Morgan’s mind when he does catch up with the trio.  Saving Joren and finding a flat surface hopefully figure largely in their future.  Sooner rather than later would be perfect.

 

Kill Fee reunites an assassin with his past and a second chance at love.  This is a fast paced drama that never loses momentum from the first page to the last.  Sexy, alpha characters keep the plotline moving forward.  The Coriolis series should be read in order to fully appreciate the cast and storyline.  Hot and heavy and very sexy Kill Fee sizzles.
