Tessa alone makes Dylan's life more than schematics and computers. Her indomitable will, her impish challenges, irrepressible humor, and even her untidiness became an oasis of magic in a drab world of order and automation, adding color and breathing life into something that had been less than a life.
So what do you do when someone steals your girl to make you perform your technical wizardry on their sketchy hardware? Do you curl up and cry? Do what they want? Defy them? Or do you outsmart them and do your damnedest to smoke out every one of them so they never can do this again?
It was a mistake, of course, to make an enemy of Dylan. After all, people who threaten Tessa were definitely not going to come out unscathed.
And Maxcom didn't appreciate what those around Dylan will do to help him save Tessa.
But the real mistake they made was thinking Tessa was going to sit quietly by and get used. As if! If you think Dylan's the wrong one to cross, well, you don't know Tessa.
That last mistake was really going to cost them

These were women who needed no one to take care of them. Until now.
It wasn’t enough that Jenri women had been stolen, including his wife, Layla It wasn't enough that those who had stolen them had nefarious plans. And phenomenal magic powers. And could escape in seconds. And an underground fortress in the midst of frozen mountains so cold Tander was afraid he’d shatter if he stumbled one more time. It wasn’t enough that he was surrounded by angry husbands worried about their wives and willing to take their tempers out on him if he was leading them in the wrong direction. It wasn’t enough that he was also surrounded by the remaining women from his tribe who were equally angry and more than capable of kicking his butt.
No, on top of all those little issues, he discovered he's no longer “just” an extraordinary swordsman, but also a great and powerful sorcerer with absolutely no idea how to use his powers. He was not just any sorcerer, either, but one chosen by six tiny kitten familiars who did know how to use his powers and who had no problem telling him. All the time. While they demanded to be carried all over his person, purring and taking inopportune naps. He didn’t want these powers or a flock of noisy but helpful kittens, but he was going to need them. He'd need all the skills and talents he and his companions possess in order to save their women—and Layla.
But we love you, Tander! Solace insisted, purring and licking his neck.
Things have got to get better soon.
