Welcome to Hanover House….<br /><br />Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be?

Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries. <br /><br />He knows what could happen if only one little thing goes wrong... <br /><br /><br /><br />

<b>The delicate human woman is his mate. And he'll fight anything the Project throws at him to save her.</b><br /><br />Jack Harper was a soldier, a good one... then the Project decided to play god.

But the Project are onto him.<br /><br />Ruled unstable, a kill order is passed down on Jack and his squad and they are transferred to St.Margarets. Play-things for the head docs until a bullet to the back of the head deals with them for good. But Jack isn't going down that easily, not when the delicate scent he'd been waiting for all his life wraps around him.<br /><br />Her scent calls to him. She's his. Now he has to keep her alive.<br /><br /><br /><b>A hospital manager with a heart of gold. A soldier with a dark secret.</b><br /><br />Lillian's life is... dull.

Then a late night emergency is wheeled in, his abdomen shredded and covered in blood. They’re not an emergency room but she can’t turn him away and risk a death on her hands.<br /><br />Unable to get the handsome soldier out of her mind, Lillian sneaks into the restricted area and finds herself thrust into a world where nothing makes sense. A world where men aren't always men, the dead walk, and her handsome soldier is way more than he seems...<br /><br /><b>Project Rebellion: Monsters Exist. And they're the good guys...</b>

As bodies accumulate, the agents learn that each victim’s death involved a cement block, and their job is to figure out why. The smart, risk-taking heroine that readers came to admire in Sutter’s previous Jade Monroe novels is back and in rare form, and the stakes have never been higher, especially when Jade makes a rash decision that threatens to end her FBI career when it’s barely begun. The action never slows down in this book, a wild romp of a thriller that Sutter fans will find deeply satisfying.”</i> <b>Angela M., Editor, Red Adept Editing</b><br /><br />
