The Scorpius Syndrome series comes to an end in this action packed, long awaited story. KNIGHT AWAKENING centers on Marcus Knight, who had survived the bacterium and torture inflicted on him by a so called scientist, but he can't control his obsession with Dr. Penelope Kim. She is his hero. The one who saved him and promised him she would help him, and so she is his to protect. Dr. Penelope kept her promise to Marcus and hoped that now living in closer proximity of other survivors and especially his brother and leader of the Vanguard, Jax Mercury, he would remember more of his past and loosen his obsession. He is a bit better but Penny wants more. Is it possible to shake the man up enough so he can feel even a little of what she does? Or is it hopeless and her love will always be unrequited?

The Line Between Obsession and Love has Disappeared
The world has changed. Any rules that might’ve been in place before the Scorpius bacterium ripped through civilization and decreased its population are no longer in place. Obsession and survival are the new reality. So, Marcus Knight, after a hellish time in captivity that stole most of his memory and all of his soul, has one focus, and that’s keeping Dr. Penelope Kim safe in the aftermath. She’d risked her life to save him once, and she’s all that matters. For months, he’s kept his distance, protecting her from afar, because he knows that one touch—one sigh—one kiss—from her will never be enough.
Passion is a Dangerous and Deadly Temptation
Penny Kim is one of the few doctors still living, and she alone holds the key to ensuring the human race continues. Several of her friends are pregnant, and the clock is ticking down on their survival. Her days are filled with experiments and hope, while her nights are consumed with visions and dreams of the hard-bodied and powerful soldier who’s made her safety his one and only mission. She should be wary of him; she should be terrified of him. Yet all she feels is an unreal craving for his touch that gets stronger every day. Life is short, and she’s unwilling to wait, unaware of the danger already hunting them both. Some risks are worth it, even in this new and dangerous world.
