Taking the Viking men from their home was her last hope to save her sister from life behind the walls of a brothel. Aliyah’s demand was high and Fatin knew they did not deserve the fate she was delivering them to, but there was no other option. The former sex-thrall knew from the look he gave her that the one Viking that had touched something inside of her when she captured him was dangerous to not only herself but to her heart. She had already set them on a path that would change her life forever, and there was nothing she could do to change their fate. She could only regret both her decision and the late realization that she had finally found someone who would put her above all others.
Eirik, heir to the Ulfhednar kingdom, was still the powerful warrior he had always been despite being captured and sold as a sex-thrall by the dark-skinned woman who turned on him minutes after the best sexual experience of his life — the same woman who still made him hard despite the treacherous way she captured him and spirited him away from his family and home only to whore him out in the brothel and have him milked for his essence without a choice. He needed to escape this planet and get his fellow Vikings to safety alongside him. He had a betrothed to return to, a life where he and his brother ruled, and even with this betrayal a desire to save the one woman he vowed revenge against and take her as his prize.
Eirik and the others showed their prowess as they accepted the demands placed on them by the paying customers of the brothel, but never gave up hope that they would find a way to escape and return to the home and families they had been stolen from. Fatin had once again been betrayed in her quest to get her sister, but she would not be swayed and she would take all the help she could get to save both her and the man who hated her but had stolen her heart safe and away from the sexual demands of the brothel on them both — even if it meant getting help from a beautiful warrior Viking with an agenda of her own.
This book is an intense and arousing adventure from the first page to the last. Eirik is a warrior who by his actions alone commands those trapped with him even if they are from different clans, including those his kingdom waged war against. Sold into captivity, into a brothel where he must perform alongside his brethren, his vow to exact revenge on the woman who stole him from his family is soon put to the test when she is given first taste, a taste he had already sampled from and could not stop the desire within to claim more than a taste. Fatin had been in the very same spot where the warriors stood now, slave to those who cared not of the feelings of those they bought pleasure from.
If you have not already guessed, there is a distinct lack of fidelity, and those who demand that their hero and heroine are faithful to each other from page one will find the abundance of sexual demands upon the sex-thrall and the woman who put him in the predicament a turn-off. I have to say, however, that they and this reader for one, find that their passion and path towards a life together is not only necessary for them to create the bond they have but it is a part of the path they have no choice in following.
