Lornyc is good at keeping secrets, because secrets can get you killed.

Lornyc’s forbidden relationship with Methian, heir to Xenetra, has caused him enough grief. Ripped from his life as a student to fulfil a magical contract as punishment for his family’s past, he now has to play valet to Methian for ten years. It’ll be hell on their already strained relationship.

And with his city of Katraman under attack, Lornyc needs to connect to the powers he’s been hiding. If he can’t master his powers and find the leader of the plot, he could lose everything he knows and loves: his family, his future as High Lord, and Methian.

Trigger warning: mind control, attempted assault

Previously published, this second edition has been edited and reworked for release.

About The Author

REBECCA COHEN spends her days dreaming of a living in a Tudor manor house, or a Georgian mansion. Alas, the closest she comes to this is through her characters in her historical romance novels.

She also dreams of intergalactic adventures and fantasy realms, but because she’s not yet got her space or dimensional travel plans finalised, she lives happily in leafy Hertfordshire, England, with her husband and young son. She can often be found with a pen in one hand and sloe gin with lemon tonic in the other.

With contemporaries, historicals, sci fi and fantasy in her back catalogue, there should be something for every taste in Rebecca’s work.

After a summer that was nothing like he’d planned, teenage secret agent Theo Reese is back to school and to work with Tactical Operational Support’s IT department. His world turns upside down arriving home from hockey practice to a major security breach.

On the run, he soon discovers the TOS network is down and he’s cut off.

As he uses his unique skills to find out what’s happened, Theo discovers the evil agency Blackbird is responsible. A nemesis from Theo’s first field mission is out for him and will stop at nothing to force Theo to help Blackbird realize their goal of taking global control of the internet.

Getting help from some unexpected sources, Theo must stop the internet takeover while trying to keep those closest to him safe.

Excerpt

I slept in short bursts and felt terrible as I attempted to force my tired eyes to focus as a dull throb pulsed across the back of my head.

The buzz went off again, and I recognized the pattern as Mitch’s. A glance at my watch showed he was texting and that it was six thirty. He’d be on his way to pick me up—if he wasn’t already there.

Crap.

I should’ve told him last night not to pick me up.

I propped myself against the headboard and grabbed my phone from the nightstand.

Are you all right? I just drove by your house and there’s three black SUVs there and a scary-looking dude outside the front door. I’m around the corner if you want me to pick you up. Let me know.

Who was at the house? It sounded like more than the regular police. Was TOS looking for me? Had Mom sent them? Or was it whoever had been in the house yesterday?

I pulled my legs to my chest and held them to me while I dropped my head onto my knees. I didn’t know what to do.

Another buzz from Mitch.

You’re freaking me out. Text me back.

Shit.

What could I tell him, so he wouldn’t worry?

Staring at the screen didn’t help.

Unlocking the phone with my thumb, I stared at the messages. He’d know I’d seen them.

I typed: Sorry. Should’ve texted. John’s meeting some people for Mom and Dad. I left early. Catch you at school.

I sent it and almost immediately the three dots appeared as he typed. In a few seconds the response arrived.

No worries. Just glad you’re okay. Tell your parents they need less scary colleagues. Didn’t expect to be freaked out first thing.

Mitch knew the basic cover for my parents with the FBI and Homeland Security jobs and that John worked with them.

Of course, this would only satisfy Mitch until he got to school and discovered I wasn’t there. Eventually news about John would get out, unless somebody was already keeping that quiet. That had to be why so many people were at the house.

Maybe TOS had mobilized without the network. A quick look in the corner of the phone screen showed that the network icon wasn’t present. Maybe I could find Lorenzo now or…. I still didn’t know what the or could be.

Theo Reese is just like any other seventeen-year-old—with one small exception.

This summer all he wants is to spend time with his boyfriend, Eddie, and work on his MIT research project. His parents have other plans.

An old friend needs the help of Theo’s family. Oliver Glenwood is an ’80s music star who runs his own label. His wife and his daughter, Sofia, now a chart topper herself, are the targets of kidnappers. Oliver hopes they can eliminate whoever is behind the threat.

When Theo uncovers an even more insidious plot, the covert agency the Reeses work for, Tactical Operational Support, swoops into action.

Song files have been modified to steal personal data from devices and emit a tone that drives listeners into a homicidal rage. Theo and his parents race against the clock to stop this mysterious enemy from releasing the music on an unsuspecting populace and causing worldwide chaos.

Just when Theo thinks the mission couldn’t be more complicated, Eddie shows up in New York looking to hang out with his boyfriend.

No one ever said being a teenage secret agent would be easy.

Excerpt

“So tell us what’s happened.” Dad straightened in his chair and shifted into his authoritative all-business voice.

Oliver nodded. “Two days ago Sofia and I were in Central Park for a photo shoot for her next album. It attracted a fair amount of attention because word spread on social media that we were there. Three guys rushed us from nowhere. Thankfully we were able to manage it, but they almost had Sofia in an SUV before my guys got their act together.” Panic flashed in his eyes. “We were in the northern part of the park and regular vehicles aren’t allowed up there, so how did they even get in? And why can no one figure out who they are? It’s like they disappeared.”

“Has anything unusual been going on?” Mom picked up with the questions. “Recently fired people with a grudge? Business deals that went sideways?”

Oliver shrugged. “No more than usual. My team’s vetted the people who have left the company—both fired and leaving on their own—from the past six months. No red flags. As for business deals. We turn things down all the time, but none of it seems out of the ordinary. We can re-review if you think it’d reveal anything.”

“Why don’t you let us do it?” Dad asked. “If it’s someone inside your organization, you might get false information back.”

“Won’t you raise more suspicions?”

Mom and Dad looked at each other.

“No.” Dad smiled, and Oliver seemed to relax. “Just tell us the employees and the companies we need to look at and we’ll take it from there. What about your personal security?”

“I’m worried they can’t do the job. There were four of them in the park and… well.”

“We’ll examine security from top to bottom.” Mom looked to Dad. “I’ll take physical security. We’ll use Theo’s expertise to examine your IT network and see if there’re any red flags there.” Her eyes darted to me as she mentioned my name, and I nodded.

Oliver’s brow wrinkled as he tried to reconcile that bit of information. “You’re a security expert?” It was cool he looked at me as he asked and not to my parents. He managed to not sound condescending either, even though he wasn’t sure.

“Yes, sir.” I reached into my back pocket, pulled my wallet, and fished out a business card. These were for show, but I kept a couple on me just in case. “I have a consulting firm.” I handed over the card and he studied it. It was plain white with “Theodore Reese—Cyber Security Specialist” in two lines at the center of the card. In the lower corners were an email address and phone number.

“He’s been brilliant with computers for years, and he’s taken courses at MIT for the past two years.” I didn’t get to see Mom be the proud parent very often, so it was nice to see her light up talking about my accomplishments.

“Impressive.”

“Thanks.” We traded nods.
