Set in the future but not sci fi, this is a romance between two humans of different cultures who bond for life.A sample from the bookAmbassador Dal Ben of the Remus Federation was standing at the beginning of the receiving line with his deputy Ambassador greeting each of their guests and making them feel welcome. He had been chosen for the post despite his relative young age due to his negotiating skills which were enhanced by his telepathic abilities.His planet had been colonized over two hundred years before by telepaths who were being persecuted on Earth at that time and although their telepathic talents varied, all the population had some telepathic ability.At gatherings like this, he shielded his talents and refused to eavesdrop on his guests minds. Whilst he may find out some useful information, he could just as easily discover something personal which he would have to try to forget. Using personal information to blackmail government ministers for trade agreements wasnt his style. His shields allowed him to detect changes in the aura of the gathering so he could manipulate conversations to keep light hearted and nip problems in the bud.The guest list had been kept deliberately small this time as most of the Embassy staff were back on Remus celebrating Foundation Day, and they were just waiting for the last two guests to arrive. As always it was his friend and rival Tophe and this time her had a companion with him.He turned to the door as the hover limo arrived. Always the gentleman, he saw Tophe get out first and turn to assist his new companion out of the car but in doing so obscure Dals view of Tophes new love interest. Dal was glad that he had found someone new after his companion Skye had left six months ago without saying a word and had disappeared completely. His friend had been devastated and Dal hoped that this woman would help his friend get over Skyes disappearance.When Tophe turned round and Dal saw and felt Cassie for the first time, he felt as though he had been kicked in the stomach buy a horse. She was HIS mate. What was she doing with Tophe? The connection was instant and he felt a small flair up in the aura around him. He wanted to kill Tophe and drag his prize away for claiming.Dal caught the questioning look in his deputy George and heard Are you ill Dal? in his head. He gave a small shake of the head and made a huge effort to calm his feelings and boost his shields. If George, whose talents were not as well developed as Dal’s, could feel his rage, then the rest of the gathering could become uneasy without knowing why. Although it was the last thing he was feeling, he projected calming thoughts into the room.By the time Tophe and Cassie had walked through the white marble entrance hall to reach him, he had managed to get his murderous thoughts under control. To most people his smile of welcome was genuine, but to those who knew him, they could see it didnt reach his eyes. Unfortunately Tophe was one of those who could see there was something wrong. He shook the Dals hand and asked in a hushed tone.Are you alright my friend?This is the first part of a trilogy of three siblings who find love and the lifemate sometime in the future.
