Colter wants revenge for the way he perceives Ashley walked away from him during the war, not knowing that her owner was playing sadistic games with both of them.  Ashley wants the cure for one version of the virus and a way to save her daughter.

The third book in the Outlaw Lovers series, Colter’s Revenge, gives more information about the society as they know it after the unleashing of the virus.   One thing disturbed me and made me think about what could happen in China with their one-child policy and that was the practice of selling girls to families that wanted a wife for their sons.  The author created a scenario where the sex of a child could be chosen and girls were the prize babies. So much of these stories could very much become reality.

Ashley and Colter have great chemistry that leads to some very steamy scenes between them and later, Colter’s partner and brother. I did have to laugh at some of the scenes between the two, as they spent some time trying to figure out payback scenarios and then followed through with them. 

Several new secondary characters showed up who definitely did not have anyone’s best interest at heart.  Several were plainly very sadistic and other characters were very likable.  As things progressed, one character ended up having a surprising twist and will probably have a big bearing in the next book.  Readers do need to read the series in order to get the full impact of this new world.
