Fearless Leader (Juxtapose City #1) by Tricia OwensWhen a young, uptight police lieutenant comes up against a street-wise and sexually aggressive empath, sparks fly...
Lieutenant Black, an intense young man with a mysterious past and a hatred of the street drug Bliss, is the leader of the police team which frequently targets psypaths, those with psychic powers. When the beautiful and sexy empath Calyx Starr is pulled from the streets and forced onto his team as part of the police captains secret agenda, Black must deal not only with Starrs relentless seductions, but also a dangerous telepath with a deadly grudge who has targeted the empath and Blacks team.
Calyx Starr isnt used to being denied. Born on the streets and forced into a life of prostitution to fuel his Bliss habit, Calyx is street-wise and tough, and thinks he can use Black for his own secret plans. However the more Calyx learns about Black and his team, the more the empath begins to think Black may be more than a challenge...he may be the only man Calyx can trust with his life and his heart. Too bad Black is a man with dangerous secrets, and becoming involved with him means Calyx may wind up dead or psychically destroyed.

What kind of leader will you be in ? The kind who can rally the troops and take an organization forward in uncertain times, or the kind who lets opportunities and threats go by, paralyzed by fear and uncertainty? The answer can make all the difference: for example, Apple certainly made missteps Apple Maps , anyone? How can you tell which kind of leader you are? Fearless leaders need someone or something to force them to avoid denial, Staver says. To counteract that human tendency you need a reality check that won't let you get away with either tactic.
