How can she command the look-a-like when she can’t help but yearn for him to fill an ache in her heart?
Dare was created to be the best. As the first Daniel clone to leave Onatria labs, he needs to prove he is more than just a DNA copy.

Can he convince Colonel Jones to finish his training and find a way into her bed? Or will long kept secrets unhinge the entire clone project?
Interview with Mikayla from Made For Her by Jessica E. Subject
Hello, thank you for having me on Page Flipperz! And thanks to everyone for visiting!
Here is an interview with Colonel Mikayla Jones, the heroine from Made For Her. This takes place right after she returns from visiting the Onatria clones labs, where her late husband has been cloned.
Jessica: Hello, Colonel Jones. Thank you for speaking with us today.
Mikayla: It is my pleasure.
Jessica: Now, I understand you have recently had some turmoil in your life. Can you tell us about it?
Mikayla: Yes. I recently found out that my late husband’s DNA was used to make clones of him. Not just once, but almost forty times.
Jessica: And how did you discover this?
Mikayla: D32 was in my new squadron to train for flight. It came as a complete surprise. No one had told me beforehand. I wasn’t prepared.
Jessica: How did you react? I know I’d be upset, especially if no one told me.
Mikayla: Exactly! I didn’t know what to do. My heart froze. And without a word, I spun around and left the new squadron standing there without an instructor. I marched to General Madison’s office and gave him a piece of my mind. I know I shouldn’t have, as he’s my senior officer, but he’s also a friend of mine, and was a friend of Daniel’s. He should have told me.
Jessica: And why did you decide to visit Onatria labs right after that?
Mikayla: I wanted to see how clones were made. In person. I wanted to meet the other Daniel clones.
Jessica: And yet, you refused to train D32 when you returned.
Mikayla: Yes. I can’t face him. They all look like Daniel, but D32 gets that look in his eyes that Daniel used to. None of the others I met made me feel the way D32 does. I can’t be around him. I might be tempted to do something I shouldn’t. You don’t know how much I miss Daniel. Now, even more.
Jessica: What would happen if you did cross the line?
Mikayla: I’d lose my career. He’s a clone and a junior officer. I can’t take that chance.
Jessica: One more question. How do you feel about clones? Do you see them as slugs they way many of your colleagues do?
Mikayla: Not at all. They are human, just as we are. They feel. The clones I’ve trained act the same as the Human-born I’ve trained. They’re all cocky, but each has their own distinct personality. I wouldn’t know the difference if it weren’t for the portals underneath their ears. I cringe to think how Daniel would react if he knew how clones were treated. But I don’t make that distinction. I treat everyone in my squadrons the same.
Jessica: Yes, well, I wish you the very best, and hope one day, you are able to face your husband’s clone. Thank you for joining us!
Colonel Jones eyed each one of her new cadets, examining the neatness of their uniforms, while inspecting for signs of stress or over-anxiousness. She’d never seen the telltale muscle twitches or sweats in any previous clones, only in human-borns, but she had to look for them anyway.
The first generation of clones didn’t live long enough to become cadets. Their hearts gave out within a year after incubation. But the scientists at Onatria had plowed on, utilizing more of Daniel’s research, speeding up the aging process with hormones to create the perfect generation she saw before her.
She’d had female clones in previous squadrons, but the government filled the one in front of her with testosterone-driven masculinity. If she’d been younger, she’d have a hard time concentrating. But her days of crushes and fantasies were long over. She was devoted to serving her country and planet, and nothing else.
That didn’t stop her from going out on the town for a stress-relieving fuck from time to time. But these young men in front of her appeared so virile, sure to last longer than any of her previous sexual partners.
No. As junior officers, and more importantly, as clones, they were off limits.
Inspecting them gave her the opportunity to check out more than their fatigues and tics, but if they knew her thoughts, they’d walk all over her. She’d be done.
They were of varying nationalities, builds, and heights, all fit to serve the planet. None of the cadets revealed any indication he would put the lives of others in jeopardy. This will be an easy squadron, every one of them ready to fly in a matter of weeks.
She reached the last cadet and froze. Her stomach clenched. No, they couldn’t have!
She pivoted on her heel and rushed off the tarmac, leaving the squad without an instructor.
