**This is a Kindred Tales PLUS novel--over 95,000 words long**
Lizabeth Paige is mortified. Ever since a terrorist introduced the Xi-46 lust compound into the air ducts of the Mother Ship, she had been experiencing attacks of sexual needing that leave her helpless to resist her lustful urges. Much to her embarrassment, her assistant Lone helped her with the first attack, but she’s been managing on her own (though not very well) ever since. She feels drawn to Lone, but he’s much too young for her. Lizabeth tells herself it’s better if they keep their distance.

Lone has been in love with his boss from day one. As a Twin Kindred who lost his twin at birth, he doesn’t think he can call a mate but he wants Lizabeth with his whole heart. Helping her through her first needing attack was like a fantasy come true but now, for some reason, Lizabeth is trying to cut him out of her life. Desperate to bring her closer, he is elated when the Kindred High Council decides to send the two of them to The Tower of the Higher Mind for some extra training.

But there are dangers lurking at the Tower, which is located at the top of the Sacred Mountain. At its base live the Friezens—a tribe of savage, misogynistic natives who believe women are only useful for sexual-sacrifice. And in the Tower itself,
some very strange customs hold sway. Lizabeth is now a “Mistress” and Lone must be her “Novice,” serving her in every possible way. Pulled between two extremes, will the terrors of the Tower draw them together…or kill them?

You’ll have to read Instructing the Novice to find out.

  • I just wanted to shout

    By Alliejeff
    Okay so the book is okay. I like it (I love the first few books in the series a lot more) I just wanted to say throughout the book I just wanted to shout we GET IT. You shouldn’t have those thoughts about you assistant or he is very young. It got so repetitive with that! I get that’s her character struggle but dang! Overall decent book.

    Loved this story. As an older woman that reads this author’s books I loved seeing this story about an older woman. We all know how it can be to be burned in a relationship and will be able to relate to how Lizabeth Paige felt. I think the author did an amazing job putting this character together. Lizabeth was a strong woman but had some insecurities about her. She truly did not want to be hurt again and felt a little self-couscous of her plus size body. I loved Lone’s character. He was a young kindred man who was given the gift of hope and renewed faith. Since he was a twin Kindred without a twin he never would of dreamed of finding a mate or even feeling sexual toward a woman. So I found it interesting seeing this young man given this gift. What a special gift to be given. I loved his determination and patience he had with Lizabeth. Though this journey will cause him some pain. WOW, the Friezens on Yonnie Two were some scary people. Lizabeth is battling the Xi-46 lust compound. That had to be awful to deal with. Her approach to deal with her situation was interesting in the least..LOL There was a lot that was going on at Yonnie Two and Lizzabeth and Lone will have their challenges a head of them. They will face pleasure and pure danger that will be come their nightmare. I truly enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one.
