Raylin Fabian endured a lot growing up in a war-torn universe, but nothing has prepared her for the special kind of hell the Battalion's Commander, Bartholomew Tristam, has in store for her. The commander has a score to settle with her captain and lover, Sterling Tristam -- Bartholomew's brother -- and she's just a pawn for the sadistic man's revenge.
When Xever, a powerful alien lord who rules outside of the Battalion authority, offers to help her escape, she's willing to do anything, including a telepathic three-way, to save her captain. Xever promises Raylin freedom in return for the use of their bodies. He's inhabited their consciousness, but he's also linked the three of them using his own powerful psychic energies.
Somewhere in space Bartholomew Tristam, the Battalion's supreme commander, deserves every bit of their wrath, and the time for vengeance is coming...
