The Controllers Series
Woodrow was looking to claim his mate at any price... A dark and sensual paranormal twist on a Cinderella retelling that kicks off a series!
All things must end.
I learned that lesson the day my mother died.
My step-mother was wicked.
My step-sister, cruel.
It was a relief when I revealed as an empath because it was a chance to join the program and escape the drudgery of my life.
But it wasn't the end of my troubles.
What happens in the program is a secret.
And my troubles had just begun.
"I can save you from one monster, Verity," Lilly said when she accepted me into the program. "But I cannot save you from them all."
True to her word, she saved me from my step-mother.
Then Woodrow entered my life.
And I realized he was the other monster Lilly had warned me about.

★ Part 1 of Lilly's story ★
With her father on the ruling council, Doctor Lillian Brach had lived a coveted life.
Rising to Director of the viral research program, she had carved a place for herself within the Empire.
But her life plans changed the day she revealed as an omega.
Her former research partner, Erison Tsing, has assumed control of the program. Her singularity (unique omega gift) brings more challenges than benefits. And Tsing's methods of testing her gift stamp over moral and ethical boundaries.
Secretly suppressing her heat, and clinging to a measure of independence unheard of for an omega, her life is precarious enough.
But when the viral research center comes under attack, she makes some questionable decisions.
Her escort soldier has been shot... by her hand... she was trying to save his life.
Now she is trapped outside the safe zone, and enemy soldiers are closing in.
Her father promised she would never be allocated a Controller. But that's about to change.
◆ ◆ ◆ ◆
I'm not a humble person.
I am confident in my capability, for all society considered me less important now because I'm an omega. I was late to reveal my dynamic, and my personality was already firmly set. You could not erase twenty-five years of self-belief, and I doubted a lifetime ever would.
But, I'm not infallible, and on the day Tolis was attacked I made some questionable choices.
~ Doctor Lillian Brach
★ Part 2 of Lilly's story ★
It's a lot to take in having two Controllers. And Lilly is far from settled in her new situation.
Ethan has returned, and her memories do not do justice to his indomitable presence.
Where Ryker coaxed, cajoled, and played mind-games to gain her compliance, Ethan is savage and utterly uncompromising.
Three dynamics, three very different people, and one virus that changed them all.
A virus that is still changing them due to the nature of Lilly's unique omega gift.
★ Part 3 of Lilly's story ★
Lilly had experienced one perfect moment of acceptance. For the first time since she revealed as an omega, she could see a future with her two alphas that did not fill her with dread.
So, with a measure of mischief and independence, she went to meet Tsing alone without telling her Controllers.
Erison Tsing doesn't want Lilly to stay, and he doesn't want to help her to run.
He's not her friend, nor does he harbor latent regrets about their past moment of intimacy.
Hot, possessive alpha romance that will set your kindle on fire!
From the moment I met her, I wanted to own her, and turn her into my perfect omega pet.
The redhead with a disapproving frown, and a body made for sin.
There is just one tiny problem.
She's not an omega.
He thinks I'm a non-dynamic.
I'm an omega taking suppressants.
Each day gets harder.
Each day is a risk.
To hide what I am, I've bartered, racked up debts, and my time is running out.
So when Lucian made a proposal,
I jumped at the chance.
Money will free me, and allow me to escape.
And besides, what could Lucian's omega drug do that wasn't already done?
The ruthless man is determined to own me, and now I've just walked into his perfect trap.
When I first met Anna, I rejected her.
The hot little healer was too young, too inexperienced, and I was a grouchy alpha with a reputation for absolute control.
So I stayed away for two years before our paths crossed again. Now my sweet little kitten owns me and my heart.
I didn't realize my mistake until a year later when I met another sweet healer, this one male, who'd comforted Anna after my rejection.
I knew the moment I saw them together, giggling, pressed in close as they looked at something on a data tablet.
He still wanted her.
She still wanted him.
I should be furious. I am furious. But certain parts of me are also confused because seeing them together is off the charts hot.
What starts as a forbidden taste takes a slippery slide.
An alpha shouldn't be with two omegas. It's not right.
They picked me.
But I won't give them up.
And if I want to keep them, I'm going to have to breed them both.
★ Part 4 of Lilly's story ★
Once more within Chimera's safety, Lilly returns to her coveted position as the viral program director, while taking the opportunity to reconnect and bond with her mates.
But all is not well.
Ethan is worried about Lilly. Outwardly, his little Omega may appear to be doing fine, but inside she's a mess. Her time as an Uncorrupted prisoner has left a lasting legacy...and she is also starting to worry about her next heat. She has a history of making questionable decisions when stressed, and he determines he has no choice but to force her heat.
But there are other plans in play, and Governor Brach is not ready to let Ethan enjoy early retirement. The mysterious mind-reading Omega, Larissa Olson, has been located, and Governor Brach needs Ethan back in the field.
Lilly's blood continues to act on her two Alphas, changing them in ways they are only now coming to understand. Struggling with his emotional awakening, Ryker is prepared to toe the line and be a good second to Ethan...mostly. But Ethan's mission doesn't go to plan, and his actions will throw their growing bond into a spin.
After a fateful meeting on a besieged space station, everything changed.
What followed was an episode of crazy, post-danger intimacy with two insanely hot men.
I thought they were alphas.
It turned out they were something much worse—deltas.
“Alphas are territorial toward omegas under their care,” Doctor Lilly said when explaining my fate to me. “Deltas are worse.”
I read the information pack she gave me, filed an intergalactic restraining order, and fled.
When they turned up at my practice seeking therapy, I convinced myself that everyone had gotten it wrong.
Now the two insanely hot delta males are determined to claim me as their mate.
