Theadora Conner lived a quiet, solitary life until she met two strange men one night at a club. Several days later, after a surgically neat kidnapping, she awoke to find that her world has been turned upside down. Told that she was mated to both men and altered to carry their children, she finds herself thrown into a world and culture she knows nothing about, one where science, myth, and religion seem to blend seamlessly. As she tries to accept her new life with Kyrin and Daeshen, her new husbands, a hidden danger stalks the human women. For not all of the Ta'e'sha are happy to accept these women, and one expresses his contempt with rape.
