Synopsis (Goodreads):
Tatiana Stone has worked hard to establish herself as one of Sector Four's most skilled crafters. All she wants is peace--but the sins of her father haunt her. He ruled the sector as a petty tyrant before the O'Kane takeover, and plenty of people harbor bitter memories of his cruelty. Especially now that Tatiana’s beloved baby sister has fallen in with a man who wants to start a revolution.

Zan failed his boss once, and it won't happen again. So when Dallas O'Kane asks him to defuse the rebellion brewing in the sector, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done--including seduce Tatiana. It’s the perfect opportunity to get closer to the pretty crafter and complete his mission. But what he discovers is a fiery, passionate woman--and an affair that could destroy them both.
Thoughts on Beyond Possession: I honestly can't get enough of the O'Kanes. They like to act like barbarians for outsiders, but they have a very cunning set of leaders who will stop at nothing to make sure their people are protected.

This time around we have Zan and Tatiana. Zan, who was grievously injured when Trix was kidnapped from Sector Four and feels like he let Dallas down, and Tatiana, who has a whole slew of issues dragging her down. Between the rift with her sister and the fine line she has to walk as the daughter of the former sector leader, she's worn out and fraying around the edges. Yet she keeps pushing forward to do what she has to do.

And she's lonely. So lonely.

One thing I love about this series is how the women are given equal power to the men in the O'Kane world. Zan is smart enough to know that pushing Tatiana will cause her to shut down on him. So he gives her the space to find her own answers. Unless her physical safety is at stake, he lets her call the shots in their relationship. I appreciate that about the O'Kanes. They push when they need to, but they know when it's time to back off.

One thing I love about these novellas is how every one expands the world a little further. This one gave us a peek into the marketplace and how those on the fringes navigate through it. As always, I'm looking forward to plenty more set in this world.
