Melissa Harlow's most controversial novel so far!
After a virus wipes out most of the population, all 'Drea Zelleck wants is to make it back home to find the first and only man she ever loved, Jackson Burgess. Jackson is alive, but his life has changed since 'Drea left. Once a farmer, he now runs a colony of survivors where the women are kept in cells as breeding stock in the hopes of repopulating. Kidnapped from a bus by Jackson's second-in-command, 'Drea finds herself unexpectedly attracted to the sexually controlling and demanding Bennett. Taken at gunpoint to the colony, she learns that she is expected to be 'bred" to each of the men there.
Jackson is still in love with the girl who grew up next door, but the willful, defiant woman she's become responds with such submission to Bennett's commanding ways that Jackson finds he doesn't mind sharing her with him. Now the question is, can he and Bennett keep her from the rest of the colony, or is 'Drea destined to be colony breeding stock?
The author says Breeding Stock "is a little different than most of my stories thus far. I'd say maybe a little more extreme than what I usually write."
About the Author
When asked about her work, Melissa Harlow has said, "As the reader, you get to do something that in real life none of us get to do, you get to see inside of each person. Past the scars of drug addiction, or the man holding the gun, or even the homeless man by the dumpster, you get to see what they are truly like inside.
"Everyone has made mistakes, and as much as we all hate to admit it, none of us are perfect. In my books people who’ve never had anything really great happen to them in their lives get that shining moment of glory, people who have been dragging around guilt finally find a little peace — oh, and there’s sex, lots of sex, I guess I should mention that."
