About His True Strength:

Dr. True Amare, Captain in the United States Navy, sacrificed everything for her country. One op gone wrong took her hope, her freedom, and the love of her life, Teague Maher. Twelve years later, as she struggles to put that terrible night behind her by bringing those responsible to justice, her country has one more request—”Do it all again.”

Teague Maher, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI, was forced by his government to give up his life, leave the woman he loves, and protect a queen. Twelve years later, they’re sending him home to his enemies, to the one woman he could never forget, and the scorching memories of the two of them together.

In a last-ditch effort to bring the Azurian conflict to a close, Teague and True are forced to put their differences aside and work together. Unfortunately for them, their teams, and likely the world, that proves difficult when Teague sees only the young woman he used to command in and out of the bedroom, and not the unshakable leader she’s become.

Can she trust him with her heart?

Can he lay his life, pride, and ego at her feet, and understand that then and now, their love is his true strength?

Delve into the fifth and final chapter of the award-winning Queens of Kings series by LaQuette to find out.

About Temptation Trials Part 1:

Temptation Trials
Part I
Will You Be Tempted? Will Love Save Your Soul?

One nation under his reign.

Cardinal sins of man caused humanity to pay the price. Cali Nasser grew up in a world succeeding World War III. The aftermath forced the world dictatorship that she must now live in. A new Regime arose from the ashes. They demanded obedience and cooperation from every citizen, even in matters of the heart.

One domain … One accord … One nation. That is the moral code. In Cali’s eyes, it all revolves around a twisted plot for control.

It used to sicken Cali how people would allow the Regime to test their love through the Temptation Trials. That is, until she met Kincade. Cali’s entire point of view changes when she falls for him. She struggles with herself, debating if she should challenge the government’s law of arranged marriage.

Cali’s childhood friend, Stefani, always kept a positive perspective about their lives until she was threatened with the same dilemma, at odds over the man she loves.

Now Cali and Stefani face a desperate choice — submit to the Regime’s will, or fight for what they value most — love. Although lust, mistaken for love, could lead to damnation. Do they give up on love or sign up for the Temptation Trials, a reality TV show where every temptation is laid before them?

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Can love save their souls?

Chapter 12:

* * * Shiray * * *

The door flew off the hinges across the room. The sirens blazed. Juda went in first with Zephra on his heels. Then Conan ran inside, followed by Cessar, Syira, me, and Bryan. As I entered, Kadeem was surrounded by a mass of his people. He hadn’t made it to Melanie. Kadeem seemed dazed as he stared straight into the eyes of a red headed male. Kadeem had his laser raised, but didn’t fire. The red head smirked. They must know each other. Kadeem’s hesitation gave red head time to react. A bright glow emerged off him and slammed into Kadeem. The surge sent Kadeem flying backward. Syira was on the red head before he could breathe. She wasted no time and blasted red head dead in his heart. Zephra and Juda helped to take out the rest of the group.

Plan B was already in action. Bryan was attempting to get to Melanie’s cell. I’m sure we didn’t have long before more Polars came in to help. Melanie looked confused and scared. She was at the far wall of her cell. When she saw Bryan, she ran to the cell bars. Her blond, wavy hair was tangled and a lot shorter. It fell to her shoulders. She had some bruises, but other than that she seemed okay. Bryan quickly made his way to her while shooting his gun. I followed behind him, watching for Polars. Zephra and Juda were double teaming a male Polar. Zephra kicked him in the knee cap and he fell. Then Juda knocked him out cold.

A woman Polar was about to fire at Juda and Cessar jumped in and conjured lightning bolts from his hands. The woman shook rapidly and hit the ground with a thud. Juda thanked Cessar with a head gesture.

Kadeem, who was unharmed by the earlier energy blast, executed two Polars with his laser. Then he ran and jump-kicked another in his chest. Syira was brawling with two males. One attempted to punch her. She extended her hand without even touching him and he slammed into a wall. The force of impact cracked his head and blood gushed from it. The other male twisted Syira’s arm behind her. She slung her head back and head-butted him. He tried to shoot her and she threw her force field up. Then zapped him with her gun. Now he was dead.

Once Bryan got to Melanie’s cell, her green eyes were wide. I crouched down not far from him, keeping guard. So far no one had noticed him. They were all occupied with fighting.

“I’m going to get you out of here,” Bryan told her.

“You actually came for me,” Melanie said.

“Of course! I would never leave you here to fend for yourself. Step back. I need to get the door open.”

She backed away and he started to melt the lock. A male Polar saw him and headed our direction. I shot my laser at him, but he managed to dodge the beams. So I mind-warped him with pain and that took him down. Several more Polars had come to the rescue. Two engaged me. I began fighting them. I hoped Bryan got her out fast. I grabbed a woman by her hair and flipped her over. I kicked her in the ribs and blasted her. The male Polar kicked the laser out of my hand. I mind-warped his ass and he fell to his knees. Two more were on me within a matter of seconds, for Sonar’s sake.

Bryan had gotten Melanie out and he had her positioned behind him. He was moving forward, but Polars were coming out of the woodwork. It was hard to judge how many because I could only glance quickly, still fending for myself.

“We have to get out of here!” I heard Bryan yell.

Then Melanie screamed, “Bryan, look out!”

Four males jumped Bryan. I needed to help him, but a woman had gotten hold of me. She punched me in my stomach twice. I recovered and warped her. The other woman took me by surprise and used her telekinesis to strengthen a powerful kick to my chest. I hit the wall, hard. She attacked before I could get up. She tried to kick me again, but I caught her foot with my hand and threw her back. She attempted to use her power, but I was faster. I mind-warped the tramp with pain and she cradled her head. Blood poured from her nostrils.

I turned my attention back to Bryan and was shocked. Melanie was brawling with a male and kicking his ass. Impressive! She socked him in the groin and he staggered. Then he extended his hand and black smoke seeped from it. The smoke began to spin rapidly and he was about to plunge it at her. Bryan was still battling with three Polars. I was about to mind-warp Black-smoke, but I felt a sharp pain in my head. Someone clocked me. I gripped my head and went down. The male was about to shoot. But I was able to put a warp on him so fierce, blood gushed from his eye sockets.

By the time I looked up, Melanie had thankfully escaped the smoke’s path and was on the ground. The black smoke landed on his comrade and killed her. Bryan snapped one of the male Polars’ necks. Then the other got a shot off. I don’t know how Bryan moved so quickly, but he dodged the beams. He dove to the floor, retrieved his laser, did a turn-spin, and executed him.

Black-smoke was after Melanie again. Bryan got wind of him about to use his power on her, and spewed flames on him. That was all I saw, because three more attacked me. I kicked the laser out of a female’s hand who was about to fire. A male jabbed me in the ribs. He tried to do it again, but I blocked him with my hands. He threw a right hook, and I delivered a left. I grabbed his head and slammed it into my knee. Another male caught me from behind and lifted me in the air. I flung my head backward and head-butted him. The first male came at me again and I did a thrust move to his throat. The female retaliated and put me in a headlock. The other male aimed his laser. Oh! I had enough of this street fighting shit. I leaped back and dug from deep within. I conjured up a massive warp of agony. All three of them went to the ground, holding their heads. One male was yelling, and the other lay flaccid. Blood was running profusely from the woman’s nose. Several others were also screaming. Bryan was spurring flames on all of the remaining Polars. We were running out of time. We needed to get out of here before we were outnumbered to the point where we were trapped.

“Let’s move now!” Bryan yelled.

Syira ran out of the opening where the door had been, followed by Kadeem. Bryan grabbed Melanie’s hand. I took off through the opening next, and they were behind me. The sirens were roaring. I was running full speed, trying to get to the elevator shaft. I glanced back and saw that we were being pursued. I slowed down because Bryan and Melanie were several feet behind me. He couldn’t run at full capacity because Melanie wouldn’t be able to keep up. The elevator came into view. Kadeem and Syira shot three Polars who were blocking the way. I dashed inside with the others. Bryan and Melanie made it in a few seconds later. The pursuing Polars were headed toward us. Melanie stepped back and I got completely in front of her. Bryan hit the button repeatedly, attempting to get the door to come down. My heart beat rapidly.

“We’re not going to make it,” I stated point blank.

A truckload of Polars began firing their lasers. Syira lunged in front of us and put her hand out. A clear transparent shield covered us and deflected the beams. They bounced off of her shield instead of plowing into us. That was close. Bryan was talking on the com in his ear, letting Kumar and Nazar know we were on the way. The glass door lowered and we shot up like rocket. When the elevator stopped Bryan went out first. Kumar and Nazar were already heading toward us. We immediately formed a circle. I grabbed Melanie’s hand and Bryan took her other hand.

“What’s going on?” she asked Bryan.

“I’ll explain later,” he told her.

Melanie glanced up at Kadeem. When she saw his eyes, she freaked, and tried to break out of our grasp. I held her hand tighter.

“Relax, he’s with us,” Bryan said. “Hold steady. We are about to move.”

I heard the elevator coming to a halt. They were on our tail, I really concentrated. Then I felt a surge of energy radiate through me. Everyone disappeared, but I still felt Melanie and Zephra’s hands. I saw the lightning storm, and several seconds later we were back at the palace. I breathed a sigh of relief that we all made it back safely. Melanie gazed around; her eyes were full of questions.

“Where are we?” she asked Bryan.

“My home, Kadan. Come inside, and I will explain.”

We went through the courtyards and into the palace. Several Kadanans were roaming about. I’m sure they were trying to figure out who Melanie was. I thought no one but King Julius, Nile, Syira, Kadeem, Rachelle, and our seconds knew about Melanie. But I was beginning to wonder. The entire palace would be buzzing about who this mystery woman was with Bryan. It was embarrassing, but what could I do about it? At least no one besides my family and close friends would dare ask me questions. People stood around staring and whispering. The best thing to do was to act normal. I went up to Bryan; he was standing with Melanie.

“We need to debrief your father. I’ll meet you in the dining room shortly.”

“All right, Shi.”

He sighed and I walked toward the conference room, not giving them a backward glance.
