~ Anyanka ~
It isn't natural for a seventeen-year-old girl to be without a social life, but there isn't much natural about me anymore. I, Anyanka Truman, am an aberration.
Two years ago, my life changed forever. Self-imposed exile seemed to be the only way to keep me safe from people who would use me as a lab rat, and from those who would hate my differences. Solitude became my new normal, the island my domain.
When new information connected to my condition is discovered, the ultimate betrayal is brought to light. Any peace I’d finally gained is shattered. Inevitable circumstances force me to trust outsiders, and I make the only decision I can…
We. End. This.

A year after her husband’s death, Vashti grows weary of the grief and loneliness that plagues her. Forcing herself to leave the sanctuary of her mansion, she ventures into town. Although Vashti intends to maintain her privacy, she finds herself compelled to take in a recently single college student.
When Absalom’s girlfriend is caught cheating, he ends up with no place to go. Vashti’s offer of housing in exchange for companionship seems heaven-sent, even if it does come with a strangely specific contract.
Things are going well for both Vashti and Absalom until his friend Simeon enters the picture. With his entrance into their lives, he brings unwanted drama with him. The privacy Vashti has worked so hard to protect is suddenly endangered, and Absalom sees everything he’s built with Vashti begins to crumble.
When lives are threatened, will Vashti’s solution to the problem alter the course of their lives forever?
