Thyra Andersdatter is still reeling after she flunked out of the Medical-Cybernetics program of her dreams.  In a stroke of good luck, she’s been assigned a temp job examining cyborgs in the Gauntlet Testing Facility.  All Thyra wants is to earn her first day’s paycheck and go home to her houseplant, but one honest mistake threatens to cost everything she has left.


B15-101010 is different from the other cyborgs on the testing line.  Ten has a personality, self-will, and a hidden yearning for freedom.  If the Military discovers how independent this living weapon is, they’ll erase him.

The clock is ticking down to the moment they will be caught. Can they slip out of this trap, together?

Trust is hard to come by when everyone holds secrets … and somebody is always watching in the halls of Gauntlet Testing.

This novella is the first in the Subspecies series.  It is a self-contained story with a beginning, middle, and end, and does not end in a cliffhanger.  However, as it’s part of a series, certain plot threads brought up will continue on and be addressed in future novellas.


This story contains a steamy love scene.
