"THE TALES OF THE SHAREEM just keep getting better!"

Book Four in Series

One glance was all it took to land Aiden in jail. As a Level One Shareem, he was bred to bring sensual, soothing pleasure to a woman. How could he have known that simply enjoying a hot beverage would bring about a sexual harassment charge? But Lady d'Aroth had been there and her body's reaction to Aiden sent her racing out of the coffee bar like her hair was on fire. Her bodyguards assumed she had been assaulted and naturally the Shareem was responsible.

Ky is a Level Three Shareem. Bred to be the ultimate Dom, Ky brings pleasure in the form of bondage and spankings. When he hears of his roommate and best friend's arrest on false charges, he sets out to help get Aiden released. He soon learns that highborn Brianne d'Aroth is responsible for Aiden's dilemma and vows to make her pay for the inconvenience. He sets a plan in motion that will teach Brianne a lesson as only he can teach it, and Ky is very eager to administer her punishment.

Brianne d'Aroth is a member of the ruling family. The d'Aroths helped shut down DNAmo and the Shareem project 20 years ago. They created many of the laws that have relegated the Shareem to second-class citizenship. Brianne has never considered the plight of Shareem until the visit to the coffee bar, and when she learns that the actions of her bodyguards almost led to the termination of Aiden, she is determined to make amends...even if that means submitting to Ky's punishment.

What starts off as an erotic game quickly turns into a tangled web of desire. Can Aiden finally confess his true feelings for Ky while embracing his growing attachment to Brianne? Does Brianne possess the courage to pursue her own personal happiness over family duty? And will Ky's Shareem programming force him to make an impossible choice -- give up his unconventional relationship or his life?

Allyson James' THE TALES OF THE SHAREEM just keep getting better, adding another solid installment to the series with AIDEN AND KY. As expected, darker and more complex sexual situations are explored providing another layer of interest to the world of the Shareem. Readers who generally shy away from gay romance may enjoy this erotic polyamorous story and fans of the series will be delighted to know that more Shareem stories will follow.

Reviewer's note: This book contains elements that some readers may find objectionable: Explicit sexual content, same sex intercourse (m/m), ménage (m/f/m), polyamory, exhibitionism, bdsm, voyeurism, mild violence, and anal intercourse.

Brianne, a member of the elite ruling family of Bor Narga, is horrified when she inadvertently causes the arrest of two decadent Shareem — men genetically created to provide women ultimate pleasure. They are nearly terminated before she can get them released, and she wants to make amends.

Little does she know that Ky, angry over the near loss of his best friend Aiden, will find an exquisite way to make her pay. Raised to believe that carnality has no place in civilized life, Brianne suddenly finds herself schooled by not one, but two Shareem.

But Ky doesn't realize that their threesome games will stir to life his buried feelings for Aiden, and that a deadly secret from Ky's past will emerge to put him — and their newfound love — in danger.
