A King set on ruling with absolute power no matter how cruel or high the cost.
A fierce warrior who’s loyalty is tested when forced to confront his lust for an enemy.
A rebel, intent on claiming the throne and willing to destroy anything and everyone to get to it.
In an Ancient Kingdom, King Solveig rules with an iron fist. Those who are loyal, sacrifice their lives for the pleasure of his service. Those who are not- die. When his loyal right hand man, Gunnvor goes missing on a routine hunt, all hell breaks loose.
A routine hunt for his King, turns into a nightmare as Gunnvor is captured. Forced to submit to his captor to survive, the line between lust and loyalty becomes painfully blurry.
Tired of his people being persecuted under the tyranny of the sitting king, Torhild is determined to conquer the land he believes is rightfully his. The unexpected intruder challenges not only his plans but also his self control.
I really loved this book. The story begins when Gunnvor is sent off by the king to catch a deer, but while he is away he is captured by a rebel leader, Torhild. The subsequent slave/master relationship between the two men is violent and extremely sexy. Though the sexual encounters start out forced, their attraction is so strong that the encounters always end with both parties fully enjoying every moment. This story has some twists along the way and ends in a suspenseful way. I look forward to reading the next book and finding out what becomes of Gunnvor and his relationship with Torhild.
RATING: I enjoyed it 🙂
