Haven – The Wanderers Book 6 by Becca Jameson

The world is no longer a safe place,
especially for women.
For several decades, the birth rate of females has been declining.
Militants, the government,
and private citizens alike will do anything
to find young women and force them
into unthinkable arrangements.
The Wanderers are a secret
underground society, born to provide
sanctuary for anyone who believes in
free will and democratic notions.
They have grown in numbers for many years
and have several compounds
where their citizens live in safety.

Harmony’s path in life has always been predetermined. She was lucky to have been permitted to stay with her mother until she was twelve. Many girls were not so fortunate. But that was eight years ago. She’ll be twenty soon, and she’s been a ward of the state, living in a girls’ home, for almost half her life. The clock is ticking. Females have no rights in the new world. She will be wed against her will to a man she did not choose and has not met on her twentieth birthday.

Unbeknownst to Harmony, a team of Wanderers has a plan to rescue her. It’s risky. It might fail. All four men are endangering their lives for a woman they’ve never met. But in this post-apocalyptic society, danger lurks around every corner and risks are taken for the better of humanity every day.

Mykel, Eldin, Blane, and York have very few details to go on, but they intend to rescue Harmony if it’s the last thing they do. What they don’t expect is to fall head over heals for the woman. Their mission is to bring her to The Wanderers bunker and reunite her with her mother. But that plan might take a detour if their affection for Harmony is reciprocated.

In the prologue of this book we learn just how lucky Harmony was to have spent so many years with her mother. Her mother a teacher for the boys, Braylon, Riggs and Stone, and allowed her to sit in on the lessons which she absorbed like a sponge. Now in the girls home she’s caught reading a pamphlet by Alysia who asks her to teach her to read. In this new world reading is power and none of the girls are taught to read, she agrees since they need whatever advantage they can get once they are married off.

Mykel, Eldin, Blane, and York are preparing for the riskyest mission they’ve done so far. Not only are they going to rescue Harmony before she gets to her wedding, but also her mother, Marion. Everything has to be timed perfectly or they’d never get close to Marion.

This is a favorite scene.

“Please tell me you’re the good guys,” she stated as she glanced at first Eldin and then Mykel and York.

Eldin was stunned, but grateful. This was going to be easier than he’d expected. He smirked. “We are. No time to chat. We need to run.”

Harmony was already pulling her fancy shoes off and tossing them to the side. “Let’s go.”

Eldin was impressed. This woman was no wilting flower. She was all business. Bad ass. Fierce. He suspected if she had ended up married this afternoon, she might have stabbed her new husband’s eyes out with one of those deadly heels of hers and escaped on her own.

Without hesitation, Harmony took off running behind York.

Mykel took a position at her side.

Eldin took up the rear, keeping an eye out for any disturbance. This was all going too smoothly. Too easily.

A car sped to a stop at the end of the street right on time. “We’re getting in that car,” Eldin informed her from behind.

She nodded and kept running.

Seconds later, all five of them were inside the vehicle, and Blane was pulling away from the curb.

“What now?” Harmony asked the moment they were on the move.

Eldin was on one side of her, York on the other. Mykel had taken the front passenger seat. It was Mykel who reached over the seat and tossed back some clothes.

Harmony caught them. “Thank God. I don’t know who you guys are, but you seem prepared. I hope you know what you’re doing.” She twisted to one side so her back was facing Eldin. “Can you rip the buttons off this stupid dress?”

“You want me to tear it?” He was kind of surprised. He shouldn’t have been.

She looked over her shoulder and lifted a brow. It was the first real look he was getting of her. She was stunning. Long dark hair had broken loose from the updo it had been in while she’d run for freedom. It hung in wild curls around her shoulders and partway down her back. Her eyes were dark brown. Her features were petite, but he knew in a glance this woman was fierce. No one should fuck with her.

“It took twenty minutes to get this dress on me. We don’t have that kind of time. Do you think I care about it? Rip it,” she ordered.

Eldin reached up, grabbed the collar with both hands, and yanked hard enough to tug her backward. She must have braced herself though because the dress gave way, and she didn’t end up sprawled in his lap.

“Thank you,” she murmured. She held the front of the dress against her chest and tugged the black T-shirt from the pile of clothes to hand it to York. “Can you help me?”

“Of course.” York took the long-sleeved shirt from her and pulled it over her head.

Harmony released the front of the dress as the shirt covered her.

It was completely inappropriate for Eldin to be thinking about her in any way at all, but it was impossible not to. Her back was smooth and tempting. She wasn’t wearing a bra, which meant her breasts were now loose behind the shirt.

He swallowed and shook thoughts of this woman’s breasts from his damn head. Rescue, Eldin. Rescue. You’re not here to lust after her.

“I assume we don’t have time for modesty,” Harmony said as she lifted her sweet ass to pull the yards of white fabric out from under her. “But maybe you two could look out the window for like five seconds while I put these pants on?”

Eldin’s face heated as he jerked his gaze away from her. He felt like an ass for staring. Nevertheless, he managed to watch her out of his peripheral vision as she escaped the rest of the silk and lace, snagged the black jeans, and lifted her butt off the seat to tug them on.

“Okay, I’m decent,” she declared. “Someone tell me the plan,” she continued as she tugged the tennis shoes onto her feet. Next, she lifted her hands to pluck several clips from her hair until it fell in thick waves all over the place.

Eldin thought he might be drooling. He’d lost his mind.

When she finished with her shoes and sat back, she glanced at York and then Eldin before turning her attention to the front. “Is someone going to speak? You’re making me nervous. You can save the introductions for now. I won’t remember names, but tell me the plan.”

Her thick hair whacked Eldin in the shoulder and arm over and over. He didn’t mind. He wanted to grab it though. He wanted to fist it, pull her head back, and kiss her.

Jesus. He was definitely losing his mind.

Mykel twisted from the front seat. “I’ll give you the rundown. We’re with a group of people who live in a safe location outside of The Republic. We rescue people— mostly women— and bring them to safety. We learned about you from a woman named Haley. Do you remember her?”

Harmony’s eyes went wide. “Yes. Pale. Dark hair. Five-four? She was sold into marriage to someone about a year ago.”

Mykel nodded. “That someone was the family your mother works for. The Hansons.”

“Braylon?” She looked shocked.

Mykel nodded. “Yes. It’s a long story, but she escaped The Republic with Braylon, Riggs, Storm, and Rush.”

“Who’s Rush?”

Mykel waved a dismissive hand between them. “That’s not important right now.”

“Tell me,” she demanded.

Eldin flinched at her side and took a breath, deciding it was better to just tell her. “Rush is the man who was kidnapped and sent to impregnate Haley when she failed to get pregnant by Braylon. He was from our society. He led the rest of them to safety.”

Harmony stared at Eldin with wide eyes. “I always thought Bray was uh… in top shape. I’m surprised he couldn’t…”

Mykel groaned. “Can we come back to this later, please?”

Eldin shot him a quick look and then met Harmony’s gaze again. “He’s right. It’s complicated. Can we please deal with the immediate plan? We’ll explain the rest later.”

She nodded. “You’re right. Go on.”

Blane continued to drive. He was getting close to the edge of the city though. The five of them couldn’t just drive out of town as if they were on a joy ride. It didn’t work that way.

They were almost at their first destination though, so there wasn’t much time to explain the next step in this mission. Eldin took over. “Listen. We need to get out of sight. Blane’s going to pull into an abandoned warehouse. We’re going to hide out there for several hours. Two of us will stay with you. Two of us will go get your mother.”

She gasped. “My mom is coming with us?”


She ran a hand over her hair. A smile spread across her face, the first one she’d granted them with. “Oh, God. That’s…” She shook her head. “I can’t thank you enough. Does she know you rescued me?”

Eldin nodded. “She knows that was the plan. She can’t know if we were successful or not yet, but she should be at the rendezvous point soon. Timing was important. She needed to disappear about the same time as you. As soon as word gets to the Hanson family that you’ve escaped, The Republic will have men surrounding the residence. We never would have gotten close to her.”

Harmony is a strong woman, and she exerts that strength for the first time before they are even to the rendezvous point. Stuck in a tunnel because of patrols, she demands to be kissed by not only Eldin but also York. Eldin had been holding back his reaction to her before that. York, Eldin, Blane and Mikel had been in a relationship and their wife Suzanne had died. It’s been years since any of them felt attraction to any woman until now.

Their journey to the compound is fraught with danger but they make it unscathed. Once there we get so many surprises for both Harmony and her mother.

I can’t wait to see what else Becca comes up with for this series.
