Rymellan 2: Shattered Lives
Torn apart at the end of Rymellan 1, Lesley and Mo haven’t seen each other for almost two years, but their love has endured. Are they Chosens, or will they be forced into relationships with other women? Tired of living lives on hold, they desperately want the Chosen Council to resolve the uncertainty that has hung over them since they first kissed.
In Rymellan 2, the Chosen Council finally answers the question that has haunted Lesley and Mo for years, but the closure they desire eludes them when they’re thrust into a situation they never would have imagined.
Rymellan 2 contains the following stories: Shattered Lives, Besieged, Closing Ranks, Shields Down, and Shattered Delusions.
Rymellan 3: The Triad
Lesley and Mo’s relationship is tested when Mo develops feelings for Jayne and the arrangement the triad struck in Rymellan 2 comes to an end. The three women know they must adapt to the inevitable changes for the triad to thrive, but the triad’s shifting dynamics would challenge the strongest of Rymellans—and does.
Rymellan 3 contains the following stories: No Going Back, Crossroads, Convergence, Chosens, and Joined.
The triad is eagerly anticipating the birth of its first daughter when the Rymellan ship Osprey encounters an alien vessel heading for Rymel. The Rymellan boarding team makes a shocking discovery—one that strikes at the heart of what it means to be Rymellan, and turns what should have been a joyous event for the triad into an agonizing one.
