eBook Description: When Warin, a sorcerer, needs a large amount of coins to rescue his sister from her abductor, he chooses to abduct someone himself. And he selects the man he has been lusting after ever since sharing a secret, sensual moment at court months earlier--Benedict, the beautiful and illegitimate son of the king. At first, Benedict is reluctant to give into forbidden desires, but he cannot resist the enigmatic sorcerer's pull. Yet when he surrenders to his lust, he's also not sure whether it's of his own free will or because of a spell Warin cast on him. As the men grow closer, however, they realize that when the ransom is paid, Benedict must be released and Warin must flee from punishment. Will they be able to end their passionate affair and separate, or will they fight to stay together, even if it means facing the king's wrath?

"4 Stars!...This paranormal story was fun, romantic and sexy. It is well written with vivid details, interesting characters and hot sex...There was a good amount of character development that helps make these characters real people. Warin, the Sorcerer, is wonderfully drawn. He is complex, conflicted yet clear on what he wants and how to get it...I also enjoyed the arc of Benedict, the young prince, and his struggle to accept his attraction to men...Ultimately, it is a wonderful romance between the two men that makes this such an enjoyable story."--Matthew, Rainbow Reviews
"4 Angels!...A quick read that focuses on the development of a physical and emotional bond between the two main characters.This reader rooted for Warin and Benedict to have a happily ever after...An entertaining read."--Whitney, Fallen Angel Reviews
Benedict woke with a strange lightheadedness. For a moment he didn't know where he was. Couldn't recall anything. He lay on a bed. When he tried to sit up, he realized his arms were restrained.
Benedict tugged at the shackles locked to his wrists. It started to come back to him. Samson and the others were escorting him home and then...
"Fight all you want, you can't get out of those."
Lord, he was naked, too. Benedict stared at his bare flesh, lit by what seemed to be dozens of wall sconces. Yet where was the voice coming from?
"You might be a little dizzy still. It takes some adjustment to come back from that particular spell."
Benedict blinked, and his head hurt. Spell? Then he really had been shrunk? And his men ... Had they been killed?
"I'm not going to hurt you, your highness."
That man. He'd fallen from the tree. A dark angel. But not an angel. Something far more sinister.
"I'm ... I'm not a prince," Benedict whispered, finding his voice, seeming to speak to no one.
"You are the king's son."
"A bastard son only."
"Ah, but you are infinitely more than that to the king. You are well-favored."
Benedict shook his head. "Who are you? Why do you hide yourself and where are my men and my ... clothes?"
For several moments, a low rumbling chuckle was his only answer.
There was movement by the door, but still Benedict could see no one there. "What trickery is this?"
"I know not the current whereabouts of your men. Or whether they live to tell of their failure to protect you. If they did survive, no doubt your father will see to their execution. They are no longer a concern to you, your highness. As for your clothes ... you do not need them for what I have in mind. You are my prisoner and are mine to do with as I please."
Benedict's heartbeat raced. He swallowed the lump of fear forming in his throat.
