|Plot Summary of Power of Two|
Love Spell, Nov 2004, 6.99
In 2176, Cai works for the United Colonies of Earth Army Special Forces and has since her parents vanished when she was a teen. She works from an office while her field partner Captain Jake Tucker carries out the mission. They communicate through telepathy using nanoprobes in the brain. The pair has never met and Jake assumes she is a computer.
However, Jake's notion of his teammate changes when Cai comes out of the “shadows”, enters a bar and uses telepathy to prove she knows him “intimately”. She pleads with him to take her along on his next assignment, the capture of Banzai Maguire because Cai feels the legendary woman can provide her insight into what happened to her parents. Jake wants to refuse because he fears taking a “civilian” into a scenario, but reluctantly agrees. As they work together in person for the first time, both feel the lust between them, but the objective remains the capture of Banzai before pursuing that attraction.
