Tobias and Kincade are part of a cryptic organization that’s trying to uncover the secrets behind the Regime.

Excerpt - Chapter 4 

The show’s host called the temptresses individually to do one-on-one interviews. Lead Enforcer Gonad had informed them when they arrived about the rules and how the set-up of the show would go.
During the first three weeks, the six chosen male candidates had to choose three temptresses to go on dates with. After that, they would choose one to spend the remainder of the Trials with. There were ten temptresses, so four would get sent home.
After the Trials were over, the six chosen original couples had to decide if they still wanted to stay together—to be Soul-bound, as they called it. Both people had to be in agreement. If one person in the relationship didn’t want to reconcile, then they had to marry their final choices from the island. As for the tempters and temptresses, they didn’t get a say.
Being chosen as a contestant on the show gave everyone more of a choice than the rest of the nation got. By law, at the age of twenty-one every citizen had to fill out a marriage application, and then, viola—the regime chose your spouse and you were married for life. Divorce was no longer allowed.
Their host, Zimmerman, bounced on his heels as he approached Sahara. She took in his appearance not knowing what to think. His silver-blond hair was pulled back in a ponytail. He wore similar shades to the enforcement, but his were slightly thinner. His black suit looked like it cost the monthly income of someone in the almost non-existent middle class.
Showing his immaculate white teeth, he clasped his hands together. “Ms. Fenty, aren’t you a beauty. I’ll be your Temptation Trials host for the duration of the show. I will be traveling back and forth among the three islands, hosting the episodes.” Sahara nodded. “Follow me to my office.”
Once inside, he directed her to have a seat in a plush chair across from his huge wooden desk. An enforcer walked over to stand in the corner of the room. Sahara swallowed hard, spotting a cameraman prepared to record their discussion.
Plopping down in his large leather chair, Zimmerman began. “This is an interview used as an intro into episode one.”
“What will you be asking me?” Sahara wondered.
“That’s a good question.” Zimmerman’s smile widened. “Just standard stuff—similar to your answers on the Trials application.”
Sahara cringed, recalling filling out her Trials app for the show. Those questions were gruesome. They claimed that the app sought personal criteria to match your compatibility, but as the application went on, the questions got very intimate.
“What do these questions pertain to?”
“Look at it as a way for the nation to get to know you.”
“I thought I was here for the guys to get to know me.” Since Zimmerman wore sunglasses, it was hard to be sure, but Sahara swore that he was smirking at her.
“That’s true, but since the nation is watching, we’d like for them to get to know you, too.”
“Are these yes or no questions?”
“The questions will allow you to explain your answers.”
Great! This sounded like more probing.
“Well now, let’s begin. The first one is for general character. How would you describe yourself in one word?”
“Only one word?” Sahara shifted in her seat. Zimmerman nodded. “I would say determined.” He chuckled, but Sahara didn’t see what was amusing.
“Determined about success in life or fulfilling your dreams?”
Zimmerman clasped his hands together, then he lifted a small black electronic tablet. “Let’s get to the more intriguing questions. If you married your soulmate and your spouse died, do you believe that you could ever fall in love again?” He leaned back in his chair, waiting for her reply.
“Well, that’s kinda hard to say. I don’t believe in soulmates.”
He raised his platinum eyebrows. “Really? Well, enlighten us.”
Sahara sighed, not wanting to go into details about not being sure if true love existed.
Was love real if it could be ripped away from you so easily?
“I don’t know enough on the subject to speak honestly,” Sahara said instead.
“We’ll let you throw in the towel on it for now.” Zimmerman glanced at his electronic tablet, and then back at her. “Do you believe that you can be in love with two people at the same time?”
Hell, she wasn’t sold on the idea of love at all, let alone loving two people at once. “Nope, I don’t.”
“Next question, what sin do you think is worse, envy or greed?”
“I guess it would depend on the extent of someone’s envy or greed. If a person was envious and wanted revenge, that could be disastrous. Or if someone was greedy enough to commit robbery or steal, that could also end in a catastrophe.”
“A point well made.”
“Do you believe that twenty-one is too young for marriage?”
“Do you believe in giving a person a second chance if they make a mistake?”
“It depends on what it is they’ve done.”
Taking a quick glimpse at his tablet, Zimmerman asked, “This is an interesting one. If you had to choose if one child was burned alive or three adults were stabbed to death, which situation would you choose? Saving the one child’s life or the three adults?”
This was some sick query shit. What would her answer prove? Would the nation judge her by her reply? “That’s difficult to answer.”
“Well, try.”
“I’m not sure if I can.”
Zimmerman scratched his temple. “Humm … that’s a shame. The more questions you answer honestly, the better the chance of the public getting to know you. It may even help for when you return. I have heard you’ve had a rough time lately.”
It took a moment for Sahara to register what he was saying, and then her mouth dropped open. The bastard was trying to throw the past in her face. Taking a deep breath, she replied, “I would say that all human life is equal, but in that case, I would choose to save the baby from burning.”
“So you would choose to save one life over three?”
“The three adults have already lived—the baby’s life has just begun. So yes, in that scenario, I would.”
“Interesting take on the situation.”
Sahara narrowed her eyes. “Will that be all?” She’d cooperated, and now she wanted to leave. She had just met the man, and he’d already shown that he didn’t play nice.
“That’s all for now, Ms. Fenty. I’ll see you soon, when it’s time for the tempting to begin.”
Sahara shook her head as she left the office. She was in for a tidal wave of drama if this man was any indication of what the Trials held.

Can love defeat the greatest temptation ... lust?

In a post-apocalyptic nation where the land of the free is now run under a dictatorship, there is one factor that holds the key to keeping world order—love. The new Regime controls the emotions of the heart. It’s their most vital law. At the age of twenty-one, every citizen is forced into an arranged marriage. The only way to escape the arrangement is to enter the Temptation Trials—a government-sponsored reality TV show where the loyalties of the contestants are tested by Tempters and Temptresses who are impossible to resist.

Catalina enters the Trials as a Temptress in hopes that she can win the funds to save her brother. Sahara’s been ridiculed in the eyes of the public. By being a Temptress, she’ll be able to have a fresh start. The Regime promises that if she fulfills her role on the show they will wipe her slate clean.

The problem is that the Trials are rigged for failure. In all the prior seasons, love’s rival, lust, has proven to be more powerful. No contestant has ever won the Temptation Trials and be allowed to stay with their chosen partner. Lutheran Eminence, the world’s dictator, has shown that he’s the ultimate matchmaker.

As the Temptation Ball approaches, conflict is at an all-time high. Most couples are too hurt by betrayal to reconcile. With the odds stacked against them, Kincade and Tobias try to mend their relationships, hoping that the greater good will prevail.

Attempting to uncover the true meaning of love may cost the contestants more than they bargained for—it may cost their souls.
