As a Venusian healer, Kendra-Celine would honor her oaths to heal unless it became necessary to do otherwise to keep the Marsians from getting Connor’s veracity machine. Now if she could just get Herma-Frodie to stop with the sex dreams; nightmares more like since they were on different worlds. That Jovian better be in good shape when she finally gets her hands on him for real.
Connor has developed a “veracity” machine and the Marsians want him to modify it it so they can use it in their ruling court intrigue. He’s determined to make sure that doesn’t happen. But he also has some plans of his own that include a certain Venusian. If he can get that holo program, Herma-Frodie to leave off with the interference.
A hermaphroditic holographic program that can think for itself, families that can’t NOT interfere, Marsians with intrigue upon intrigue, and two people who don’t know how to admit what they really truly want above all else. I don’t know what else I could want in a good read except the well written plot that brought the whole thing together and kept me turning pages when I should have been doing other things. Oh, and the end is a real treat that made me go ,’Oh My!’ just picturing it.
