She was born to kill. Not to love.
Jo Beaverpaw is born fully grown, well-armed, and impatient to tackle her Destiny. Namely, to kill her alien nation’s most wanted fugitive. Her programmers want her to live a few hours, kill, then die.
But something goes wrong.
Darby Lapierre has the thankless task of protecting the surly fugitive, Jo’s target, while she recuperates from gunshot wounds. It’s hard, but not impossible for a skillful bodyguard like Darby.
Until, that is, Jo shows up at the private hospital after an accident. Beautiful, naive young Jo knows nothing about life and love, and wants Darby to teach her. Just until she’s well enough to attack her Destiny, of course.
And then Darby will be in the way . . . .
