Broken Steele

Book 2 in the Mona Bendarova Series

Who Murdered Braxton Steele?

“The Taste of Honey” tells the story of a world gone wrong. In an era of corporate greed and well-meaning scientists, genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, mutate uncontrollably and wreak havoc with the Earth’s genome. Entire populations of the planet’s human and animal life die off and ultimately become extinct.


Broken Steele picks up Mona’s story six months after the tragic abduction of Honey Lee-Marks. The community has settled down. Honey is entering her third trimester, carrying the unborn heir to the Mark’s estate. The scars of the dishonor to the Mark’s estate are receding. Mona and Master Charles resumed their relationship, and she takes great joy sharing time together.

Meanwhile, the body of the master of another estate, Braxton Steele, brutally tortured and murdered, turns up. Speculation runs wild with false accusations, suppositions and fear. It’s been centuries since anyone butchered someone like this. The Chairman of Club Lothario directs an investigation to find and bring the culprit to justice.

Those efforts fail.

The Chairman calls in Mona Bendarova to take up the challenge. After weeks of dead ends and misdirection, she uncovers a thread of evidence pointing to the culprit. Evidence which leads to a conspiracy that threatens their community, their lifestyle and their entire species.

What she finds shakes the community to the core. Is anyone safe from the coming confrontation? Enlisting the aid of her Master, they develop a plan to counter the threat and return the community to peace before they are all cut to pieces.

Get a taste for how humanity survives.
