He controls minds.
Together, they might get out alive.
49% of Americans believe their government officials are honest.
I don’t know these officials, or their supporters, but I know their secrets, and 49% of Americans are wrong.
My employers pay me well to be right, to know things others can’t. But I don’t know why they brought that boy in, strapped to a stretcher, barely conscious. He asked me for help when I could give none.
I’m a wealthy spy, a talented artist, a martial arts black belt, and a prisoner.
They tell me that on my eighteenth birthday, I will be released, free to go to the college of my dreams.
It’s my eighteenth birthday, and a man in black is at my door. I know he’s not here to free me.
I know, because I can read minds.
My name is Sam, and this is my story.
So begins the tale of Sam and Drake—from the time they link minds, forging a bond that leads to an unconventional romance—to their fight for survival against the corrupt, twisted organization known as ‘Rent-A-Kid.’ Evolved Publishing brings you “Forbidden Mind” (Book 1 of the Forbidden Trilogy), by award-winning author Kimberly Kinrade.

She escaped, but she’ll never be free.
“Time held no meaning as my mind darted in and out of memories. Past and present collided to create a full-sensory collage out of my life: playing hide-n-seek with my best friends Luke—who always cheated by walking through walls when he was about to be caught—and Lucy; Mr. Caldrin critiquing my sketches and offering ideas to make them more realistic; targets changing faces, blending into the same person, their thoughts rippling through my mind like waves. Through it all, a demon stalked me from the shadows of my memories, never quite showing its face, but crouching, waiting.
And then I dreamed….”
Sam and Drake may have escaped, but they aren’t free—not with a powerful Seeker after them. As Sam struggles with the ethics of her new powers and embraces a blossoming physical relationship with Drake, Lucy and Luke face challenges of their own.
With forces coalescing inside and outside the Rent-A-Kid dorms, it’s only a matter of time before the fire they started forces each of them to make choices they can’t undo. But will it be enough to save them?
Forbidden Life (Forbidden, #3)
The road to redemption starts in hell.
The older Rent-A-Kids are free, but a powerful force still pulses in the darkness, keeping them all prisoners to their power.
With Drake gone and her power spiraling out of control, Sam doesn’t know how she’ll make it through the birth of her child–or how she’ll protect that child from the evil that stalks her.
Drake will do anything to get his powers back… but when his choices lead to drugs and secrets, he has to decide what he’s willing to lose forever.
Lucy’s shadow powers are growing stronger–too strong. As she and Luke work with the mysterious I.P.I. agents to free the babies and young children still held captive at Rent-A-Kid, Lucy must make some difficult decisions that could jeopardize her friendships, and their mission.
In this final installment of the award-winning Forbidden trilogy, each character must conquer their darkest demons or lose everything in this final battle against the evil Rent-A-Kid organization.
