"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
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.
