Publisher's Summary

Introducing a breathtakingly inventive futuristic suspense novel about one woman who rebels against everything she is told to believe.
Emma wakes in a hospital, with no memory of what came before. Her husband, Declan, a powerful, seductive man, provides her with new memories, but her dreams contradict his stories, showing her a past life she can't believe possible: Memories of war, of a camp where girls are trained to be wives, of love for another man. Something inside her tells her not to speak of this, but she does not know why. She only knows she is at war with herself.
Suppressing those dreams during daylight hours, Emma lets Declan mold her into a happily married woman and begins to fall in love with him. But the day Noah stands before her, the line between her reality and dreams shatters.
In a future where women are a rare commodity, Emma fights for freedom but is held captive by the love of two men - one her husband, the other her worst enemy. If only she could remember which is which....
The first novel in a two-part series, Archetype heralds the arrival of a truly memorable character - and the talented author who created her.

Stunning Debut Novel

Hands down my favorite book so far of 2014. I loved this one, but it’s so hard to describe what type of book it actually is…Sci-Fi? Romance? Mystery? Dystopian Fiction? This book had everything including jaw-dropping plot twists and turns.

I’m deliberately going to be very vague with this review so I don’t spoil any of the brilliant details of this book. The overall plot was not exactly new but it was presented with a fresh and unique perspective. From the very first chapter to the last I was hooked on this one and could not stop listening. Some might consider the middle of this book a little slow but it was essential to the build-up of the mystery. I thought I had this one all figured out but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I love it when a book surprises me.

I can’t wait until Prototype is release this summer. Thankfully this is not a trilogy and I won’t have to wait a whole year to get the conclusion to this stunning and sensational story!

5 HUGE stars!

- Katheryne "Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller."


Just AWESOME!!!!!!! I'm full of "Love It!!" for this book and "Can't wait for the next one!!" It swept me away into the future and kept my interest and imagination. That makes for a great listen. If you like Sci-Fi and Romance then I do believe you will like this one.The sexual situations are not too graphic but when the book is this good, who cares?

- Leesa "I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end."
