In the future, Monitors are stronger, smarter and longer-lived than normal humans. They also have a sex drive much higher and more versatile than other people. Monitors face constant danger when they infiltrate and observe various cultures for possible violations of The Articles Of Hegemony. When Janet Presley became a Monitor, she never expected to wind up investigating a planet where females outnumbered males ten to one, and yet were completely subjugated. Nor did she ever think she would have to pose as a sex slave in order to save her life and that of her libido-enhanced companions. The long trip to Arrowhead is enjoyable, with six highly sexed Monitors aboard ship, but as they discover exactly what they're getting into, Janet knows the fun and games will end very shortly, perhaps ending her life as well. The male dominated society of Arrowhead is determined to resist incorporation into the empire by the only means possible; they will see to it that the Monitors vanish forever.

Posted October 31, 2009 by Brian Bartz , Clear LakeIf you're looking for a beach read, it's OK. On the Sci Fi side, no really new or exciting concepts here. On the "porn side", it's fairly pedestrian stuff. After I read through a few of the sex scenes, I pretty much skipped the rest of them. For me, the big flaw was the bogus motivation of the main villain. If you're bored, and looking to pass some time, fine. Otherwise...

Excerpt from Monitors by Darrell Bain
One of the downsides to being a Monitor is the lack of a family life. One of the upsides is the orientation and training. After you've been through it, there's not much you can't do-or won't do, if the job demands it. Not that you always enjoy everything, but you learn. And some things you wouldn't have imagined you would like turn out to be not that bad once you've tried it a few times. Occasionally, they even get to be downright enjoyable. In fact '
Take sex, for instance. The Orientation and Monitor training increases the sex drive way beyond that of normal people. That can be either a plus or minus, but it's almost always a positive development. I grew up as a normal heterosexual girl and given a choice, I'll take a man over a woman most of the time, but I've learned to enjoy being in bed with women, too. It's fun for a change and can be quite stimulating and enjoyable, even tremendously pleasurable with the right woman. Or even the wrong one, to an extent. The orientation teaches us to accept whatever comes and make the most of it while we're observing and setting the stage for possible intervention by the Hegemony.
Before being posted to Arrowhead, I was between assignments and enjoying a fling with another agent, Erik Jovelin. Erik isn't a big hunk, but I like him. He's a good-looking man, even if he isn't a lot bigger than me; I'm five six and he's only five eleven. He has short, wavy brown hair and a slender, well-muscled body. He would have made a good-looking woman if he had been born female. But I like him as he is. This wasn't even our first affair; we had been together once before. When you live a long time, events have a habit of repeating themselves.
What I like most about Erik is his easy acceptance of the type of woman I am. He knows how quirky I can be; how changeable; how I like to be the dominant one in bed a lot of the time.
