The Escape: EVE ATE THE APPLE BOOK 1
Seven Steps, author
A forbidden love. A broken heart. A daring escape. A mind blowing twist. Womankind has banded together to make the Planet Venus in the seventieth century both a technological marvel, and cultural nightmare. While women are revered and placed on the highest of pedestals, men are kept in bondage, doomed to a future of abuse and servitude. Love between men and women is strictly forbidden, punishable by mutilation or death. Although she serves on the highest council on the planet, Empress Taylor is willing to risk her life for the scorching love of her slave Nickolas. Her dreams of escape are given wings when her best friend Eva's slave runs away, igniting a chain of events that will bring them to the deadliest place of all, the forbidden planet, Earth. But Earth is not what it seems. Flung back through time, they find themselves in the middle of The American Civil War, where Taylor and Eva's skin puts them in grave danger. As they struggle to understand this new planet, and this thing called race, peril awaits them at every turn, and to keep alive they must once again escape.
