Freed from slavery, trapped by magic.
Vell once was a powerful sorcerer and a prince of Otharn. By the side of his father, King Covl, and his beloved brother, Lonn, worlds fell at his feet. Now, he is a slave, cast out by his father, sold, used and abused. Being delivered to Earth may be his last hope for freedom.
David Thomen, scientist, inventor, defender of Earth, is living a lonely life with his inventions. Responsible for opening the gateway from Earth to Otharn, he must come to terms with his role as Vell’s newest owner, and face up to Otharn’s plans for Earth.
Forced into an intimate relationship against both their wills, can Vell and David break the bonds of magic joining them together? And when the time comes, will they want to?
Note to readers: This book is for a mature audience, it contains dubious consent, memories of past rape, as well as consensual sex scenes. No graphic violence, mild descriptions of injuries.
I definitely need to warn the readers that the “ little bit of possibly non-consensual sex” is actually the whole book. I’m not sure the prince ever consented until the very end. This made me incredibly uncomfortable.
The only reason I kept reading is that the story itself is unique and imaginative and I wanted to see what happened – but in the end I’m not sure I can recommend it as a “good” romance because it really isn’t. It’s an interesting paranormal story. I’ll leave it at that.
If you’re looking for rape fantasies then this will definitely appeal.
