The Legend of Eve
by Toni Edge
Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.
As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA, Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human "genetic cows," and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to control the Teluosians on Earth.
When Eve's mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam's true love or his next "genetic cow?"

"It is different here, Eve. Make sure you're careful about who you make friends with. Because you're new."
I moved the carrots around on my plate. This lunch was starting to feel like a setup or the final blow that I had been waiting for. "I just got here. The only friend I've met is Lily."
I heard his intake of breath. "Adam's sister. He moves quick."
Then I looked up from my plate. The carrots and meat loaf had looked tasty before but now were forgotten. "What? You think Adam sent his sister to be friends with me because he's my mentor?"
Lando shrugged. "I don't know. I'm just saying that Adam and his sister don't socialize with the crowd normally. So, if I were you I'd be a little careful. You're new, Eve. Join some clubs. I'm sure being here at Stavrett will be a big change for you and I don't want you to miss out on any new opportunities."
"That sounded like some brochure the school would give my mom. If you have something to say, then say it."
"Adam and his sister are…different."
