Being set free was never her choice to make.

Two nations, divided by chaos and ambition, are all that is left of the former United States. After an epidemic sweeps over the land, all that remains are those that were affected—and those women who were somehow left immune. They are known as Pure. Fertile and highly prized, they are cherished only for their bodies, never given the chance to have normal lives and never willing to risk falling in love.

Iolanthe lived on the streets for years, hidden from everyone except for the man that targeted her. The Colonel wants her. As leader of the eastern half of the nation, the ruthless commander will do whatever it takes to have her, even taking her by force. Maxim’s desire for her is obsessive, jealous, and controlling, yet capable of giving her intense pleasure.

Once realizing he cannot keep her trapped, she is cast off, only to be retrieved and manipulated over again. This time he is not the only one that wants her. War looms and Iolanthe’s fertility, once prized, becomes the catalyst to battle.

Two nations, both wanting to gain Iolanthe from the other. Two men, each wanting her. Freedom is elusive. Passion is a game played with precision and control. Iolanthe’s choice affects the fate of both nations.

Being Pure never felt so powerful.
