This is the final book in the Bachelor Battles trilogy
“Welcome to the final episode of the Bachelor Battles!”
The war changed all of us in one way or another, and some of us in every way possible.
“It looks like we’ll have another of those infamous, bounty-hunting Pruetts with us for this episode.”
We’ve had almost five hundred years of complete Network rule.
“Has there ever been a family so merciless, so mate-hungry?”
It was past time someone challenged them.
“Samantha J. Pruett!”
Sam grinned, moving onto the time trials field as the crowd roared approval. She hadn’t come for the taste of blood or because of the change. Sam was here for the Network and she hadn’t come alone.
Book 3 Excerpt
“Why would I let you go?” Rosa asked harshly, glowering at Baker as he stepped off the bike.
“Because we both love her,” Baker answered, coming to stand in front of the dusty woman. “I can’t be half way across the country when she needs me.”
“She won’t need you,” Rosa replied, uneasy feeling growing. She’d woken with it. “Sam can take care of herself.”
Baker leaned forward to glare at the big changeling. “I’m going back. You are going west to enlist help. Is that clear?”
Rosa wanted to laugh, but the uneasy boiling in her gut said to agree. “We’ll go with you.”
Baker shook his head. “We need any help you can find in the west. You’ll do better without a male along.”
“I can’t let you go alone. Sam will kill me.”
“Then you’re letting the Network kill her to save me. You realize that’s what she did, right?”
Rose scowled. “What?”
“You and her crew and her…whatever I am to her, will be thousands of miles away when she faces our enemies. Alone.”
“Candice’s group will be-”
“Outside the dome,” Baker interrupted. “They can’t help her.”
“Then how can you?” Melissa asked. She’d been listening hard to their conversation. Like Rosa, she had a bad feeling and no faith in the rebels or the women of the west.
“He can get tossed into a game with her,” Rosa slowly stated, seeing how it could work. “But then you’d be just as bad off as she is,” Rosa realized. “No.”
“I won’t be caught,” Baker boasted. “The bachelors have tunnels and alarms. How do you think we’ve gotten to so many of the Network’s prizes?”
“You didn’t tell Sam that,” Rosa accused.
“No, I didn’t,” Baker confirmed. “When we were in the Georgia base, I also didn’t tell Candice about it.”
“Why the hell not?” Heather demanded, leaning over Rosa’s shoulder to listen and stare. The lure of a male standing up for his convictions was impossible to resist.
Baker peered at them with regret. “I don’t trust any of you fully. You’re women. I can’t endanger all of my men because some of you have finally learned to care about us.”
It was a hard, well-earned blow that each listening changeling heard felt deep in her guts. All of them were guilty of hurting men in minor ways, but their acceptance of slavery also put them in league with their enemies.
“Damn,” Rosa sighed. “That was the sound of brothel-use ending for this crew.”
“Sam hated it anyway,” Melissa volunteered, not looking at either man anymore. She was too ashamed. “We all knew.”
“Yeah, she could go years between visits, but she still let us because she’s a good leader. And I’m not just saying that because I’m related to her, you know?” Heather cracked, breaking some of the tension.
Baker leaned forward again to place a chilly hand over Rosa’s wrist. “They’ve let two Pruetts go now. What are the odds on a third coming out of that complex alive?”
Rosa hid a chill. Baker had just mirrored her own thoughts, almost word-for-word. She twisted around on the bike to stare at her girls and to get away from the sensation of him touching her. She was happy with Greg, but Baker was hot fire. Too much for me to handle, she thought, counting the nods and shakes of her riders.
Baker observed the silent vote with worry and frustration, but he knew better than to rush them. Runners had their own code and they followed it meticulously.
Rosa turned around and jerked a hand at the bike. “Let’s go.”
Baker scowled, stomping to the mopar. Looks like I’ll be escaping someone’s custody yet again, he sneered internally.
Rosa waited for him to get set, then led them toward the nearest flat spot. She could feel Baker cursing her and was surprisingly hurt by it. Damn men are getting under my skin.
Rosa pulled onto the flat stretch and then swung around in a neat, wide rotation that led them in the opposite direction. They would stay tonight at the same cave and listen to Baker’s ideas. That was all they had voted on. Runners never dashed madly into a fire without the proper preparations. Pruetts had taught them that survival lesson a long time ago. If they couldn’t come up with a good plan, they would stick to the one they’d been given and Baker would have to accept that. Rosa didn’t want to tie him up like the slave he really was, but she would. Sam had entrusted his safety to her and Rosa took that honor to heart. The only way Baker would get out of her sight now was if she let him. She hadn’t forgotten who he was or what he was capable of.
