Variant

 

 

 

 

 

They were once human; at least they think they were. It’s hard to be sure with no conscious memory of your past to rely on. Their dreams haunt them, they seem to indicate there was a past. But now…now they are little more than bestial. Vengeance, bitterness and anger are what drive them now. The most violent of them are on a mission to rain hell down upon the heads of those who made them this way; others want only peace and quiet, maybe a little love,  after years of cold, calculating combat. Funny how just a tweak of ones DNA can make such different creatures, just one little variance in that little chain of creation. So different, yet they are all, VARIANT. Intended for mature audiences.

Beginnings, Variant 1

Warning: This book is not suitable for sensitive readers. Please do not buy this book if you have triggers to sensitive situations.

 

Black Ops Lieutenant Maddox Larsen is missing. Not only is he missing, his entire team is missing. Their reality has been yanked from beneath them, replaced with a sadistic, twisted doctor eager to find just what the limitations of a soldier’s body and mind are. Unfortunately, Maddox and his men are not alone, there are others like them locked in this nightmarish facility. They barely survive torture, abuse, and drug induced changes of their DNA. Their needs have become simple: Food, Fight, Fornicate. Maddox exceeds all expectations and becomes the model by which all other males in the facility are measured. These males are no longer men, or even human for that matter. They are Variant. But now they’re free, and they're angry. Their target? Those who made them what they are today.

 

Nina struggled most of her adult life just to survive. She made the fateful decision to marry her high school sweetheart right after graduation — now she’s his favorite punching bag. He interrupts her when she finally seizes a chance to run from him, and almost kills her. She loses consciousness, awakening to a nightmare worse than she ever imagined. She’s at the mercy of five predatory, aggressive males, all locked in a prison cell with her. Sold to a medical facility as a reward for their test subjects for good behavior, her hell has only just begun. Eventually the most volatile of them claims her, giving her a slight reprieve. But then he disappears, leaving her in the hands of all the others. He better hope he’s dead, because now she’s free and if she discovers he intentionally left her behind, her wrath will make the monster that created them seem like their best friend.

Valor, Variant 2

This book is a work of fiction — creative license has been taken. This book is not suitable for sensitive readers. Please do not buy this book if you have triggers to sensitive situations.

Valor survived betrayal, captivity, torture, and DNA manipulation along with his special ops team. Most of the males who survived this testing and restructuring have no memory of who they were beforehand. Valor, however, has repetitive nightmares that are always the same. A female running after him, calling out for him — only she’s calling him another male’s name. She’s desperate, begging for him to wait for her, come back for her, but he doesn’t know her and other than in his dreams has never even seen her. He can’t sleep, he can barely function, and he’s becoming a danger to all who depended on him. Then on the way home from a meeting with military brass, he sees her from the window of the vehicle they are traveling in. He jumps from the vehicle and pursues her, snatching both her and her daughter from a very public grocery store parking lot, and takes them back to Alliance with him.

Becky has struggled for five years to scrape out a life for herself and her daughter. She lost her husband — a special forces soldier — before she ever gave birth to her baby. The military refuses to give her any information at all about the incident that took his life, stating only that he was at first missing in action, then confirmed dead while carrying out a critical mission. Angry and resentful, blaming the military for the death of her beloved husband, she refuses any benefits that she may be entitled to and moves across the country to Texas in an effort to start fresh. It’s hard most days, but she’s managed. Until the day she’s kidnapped from the parking lot of her local grocery store by a man who places a hood over her head and angrily growls commands at her as he shoves not only her, but her four-year-old daughter, repeatedly to the floorboard of the car.

Becky and Valor forged a connection years ago that even memory loss, and DNA manipulation cannot sever. Valor refuses to allow her to leave his side. He doesn’t know who she is, but he does know it is his responsibility to protect her. While at first terrified, Becky becomes furious when she realizes the lunatic who’s kidnapped her isn’t even supported by those associated with him, as they plead for her patience and offer apologies while promising to get her and her daughter home safely. But then she gets a look at him, and both their worlds come to a crashing halt. She knows this man. Her long-dead husband is the lunatic.

SIN, Variant 3

Sin is a very misunderstood male — and he couldn’t care less. He lives each day with the guilt of freedom hanging heavily about his shoulders. He’s free, while the males who were held captive with him are not, they’re still missing. The outlet he chooses for his frustration, anger, and guilt, comes naturally to him. Women. Women are his outlet. And his job as security escort for anyone needing to leave Alliance for appointments in the public sector allows him to meet a lot of them. His very appearance, his mannerisms, and even the look in his eyes, coupled with the fact that he makes no secret of not wanting more than a few hours with any female, make him the object of almost every woman’s attention. Every female who sees him, thinks she’ll be the one to change his ways. So he lets them try. He never lies to them, though, or leads them to believe he wants any more than he actually does. Just a few hours, then he’s on to the next conquest, and he makes it perfectly clear from the moment he says hello. It’s not his fault some take it as a challenge.

Celia has no memory of her past. All she knows is the pain and torture of the facility she was held captive in. But now she’s free — more or less. The experimentation she endured has left her weak, and ill. Some days it’s even hard for her to take a deep breath, and she can’t exert herself without paying the consequences. Now her illness has progressed to the point that the doctors in Alliance feel they’ve done all they can, and they want her to see several specialists at a hospital. Celia’s terrified of all things medical. It was a doctor after all, who exposed her to the experiments that have made her sick. Lucky for her the male assigned to escort her to the hospital is one that has a way about him of calming her nerves and helping her through the tests she must endure.

Of all the females he’s ever met, the one that steals Sin’s attention is the one that is not susceptible to his charms. He’s not sure if he’s happy about that, or offended. Celia seems to have the uncanny ability to keep his darkness at bay, simply by being near him. The problem with that? Another male has already set his sights on her, and now that male is telling Sin that she’s dying. Together they devise a plan to save her life, but when all is said and done, will either Sin or Celia be left alive?
