Blurb from book:
Prince Alar is notorious... and tormented.
The prince's decadence is as famous as his extraordinary beauty. Rumor holds that he murdered his own brother to get one step closer to the throne. Some believe him to be the son of a fallen angel. But beneath his icy exterior, the prince burns with secret guilt... and untapped passion.
Farm boy Garin is innocent... and reckless.
Garin is shocked when Prince Alar rides into his village and demands that the young men strip for his inspection... so he can select one as his new slave! To protect his brother, Garin volunteers, leaving his peaceful village-- and his innocence-- behind. But even naked and chained, he is no helpless victim.
At the palace, Garin discovers a new world of decadent sex, dangerous intrigue, and devastating passion. But from the moment the arrogant prince puts a collar around Garin's throat and claims him as his own, the men are bound together in more ways than one.
From sadistic sex games to tender caretaking, from erotic awakenings to a deadly gladiatorial match, their journey together pushes both men to their physical and emotional limits... and beyond.
This is the first book I have read by Cherry Dare, when I started I was a little worried. I have read and enjoyed BDSM, gay erotica, M/M, M/F, erotic, romance many times. The only time I tend to have a problem with any story (including books, movies and TV) are scenes when someone forces themselves on another. That is just a personal issue. Yes this book contains a few of those scenes, I pushed through them wanting to see what the true story was about. As I continued reading I really began to enjoy the journey of the Prince and Garin. Not only of their relationship but of how they worked together against those who look to who sought to destroy them and the kingdom. There are a few twists which I always love in any book. Over all a well written book.
