"a fantastic way to spend the day"
Kera Zoe is at the Compound in the town of Cane , a mate-
finding ritual is in practice and yet Kera wants no part of
it, no part of losing her freedom and being a prisoner
taken in marriage! She refuses to lose herself that way,
yet Devon Noved claims her as his, and suddenly she is
unsure of everything. Devon is not what she expected,
dominating yet caring and the feelings he coaxes from her,
sometimes none too gently, are intense and scare Kera even
more than losing her independence. Sex with Devon is
destructive to a woman's independence and her will to flee
seems to flee with his touch.
Not all is what it seems though and not all want to see the
couple happy, especially not happily ever after. Devon has
decided that even Kera's heated temper and fight for
freedom can't seem to stop the hunger and need she provokes
in him. He will do whatever he must to be sure she is his
and safe forever.
Got a day to fill with a very steamy book? Fill it with
this one, the characters are both strong and tough as
nails, the twists and turns are surprising and the
intensity of the sexual heat is remarkable. I thoroughly
enjoyed it, I'm not usually into short stories, but this
was a fantastic way to spend the day. Thanks to Ms.
Sinclair for what promises to be another great series for
