Blurb: When escaped prisoner Redallek Castonar goes on the run in the war-torn city of Tetranal, he finds himself in the pleasure-house of Councillor Jarrod Tetran. Unaware that Redallek has made a blood-promise with the rebel factions to kill him, Jarrod is instantly attracted to the man. Although Redallek is determined to complete his mission as soon as possible in order to gain his freedom, he quickly finds his new master to be full of surprises and not the man he expected.
Meanwhile, Jarrod is secretly planning to take the ruling Council captive, and to begin a negotiated peace with the rebel army. Even though such an act goes against all his family stands for, he is willing to risk everything to save the country he loves from destruction.
Both Redallek and Jarrod are determined to fight for freedom and peace, but in two very different ways. Will their differences drive them apart, or can they find a way to work together for the good of all? And, even if they do, will the passion springing up between them lead to victory or defeat?
Review: Redallek Castonar is a prisoner who escapes and ends up at Councillor Jarrod Tetran house. Jarrod decides to keep Redallek as his slave unknowing that Redallek has made a deal with the rebels to kill him.
I really enjoyed the storyline and the details of war-torn city that is on the verge of collapse. Jarrod wants to change things for the better, but has to try to convince the other council members. This is nearly impossible. With Red’s help at the end they succeed after a battle and many losses.
Fast-paced and action packed story that keeps you wanting to read to find out what happens chapter by chapter. Lies, deception, and danger are all throughout this wonderfully written book.
Great read. Just a warning, there is a two sentence M/F rape scene in this book.
