Excerpt
CHAPTER ONE


 


Kidnapped


 


THE MARKET was alive with color. The buildings in this part of the city were short, made of yellow sandstone, hung with banners. All the rich merchants gathered here to sell their most expensive wares. There was perfume and incense in the air. People jostled Crow as he walked, rudely pushing past him to look at market stalls.


Crow was grateful for the crowd. It made it easier to hide.


He followed his quarry carefully. He kept thirty feet away, close enough to keep track of the man but far enough back to avoid being seen.


Ahead of him, the man he was following—Regis—stopped at a market stall full of books. For a powerful sorcerer, he didn’t look like much. If he put any care into his appearance at all, he would have been a remarkably attractive young man. Instead, his hair had knots and his fingers had ink stains. His shirt was half-tucked into his pants. He tied his messy hair out of his face, then rubbed his neck. He glanced in Crow’s direction. His eyes were still the same steel-sharp gray that gave Crow shivers.


Crow ducked around a corner. His heart hammered.


He hadn’t seen Regis in two long years. They’d parted on bad terms, and Crow didn’t look forward to another confrontation. He needed a favor, though—a big favor—and he needed to talk to Regis. Soon. If he could only gather the courage.


He needed to time this perfectly. The center of Tyrigaine held a grand fountain made of an expensive man-made stone called cement. It would be the perfect place to approach him. The water cascading, the subtle mist….


Crow peeked around the corner just in time to see Regis walk into an alley. Crow followed, but when he looked into the alley, he found it empty. A street urchin sat halfway down it.


Crow bent beside him. “Excuse me. Did you see which way that redheaded man went?”


The street urchin met his eyes and said, “Got you, you weaselly son of a bitch.”


An unseen force threw Crow back against the wall, pinning him there. With a flicker of silver magic, the urchin’s body rippled and changed. His features became finer. His hair flushed ginger. His clothes straightened themselves.


“Regis,” Crow gasped.


“I haven’t quite gotten the hang of shape-shifting yet,” Regis said, dusting himself off. “Tweaking my appearance is a nice trick, though. Any reason you’re stalking me?”


Crow twisted. “Let me go.”


“No. No, I don’t think so. In fact, I have a better idea. You and I are going to find somewhere private, and then you’re going to tell me where the hell you’ve been.”


“I—”


“Don’t want to? That’s a pity, see, because I’m one of the most powerful sorcerers in Tyria. I could move you like a puppet. I could freeze your vocal cords. Is that what you want? You want me to drag you?”


The force released him. He fell, and Regis gripped his arm. The heartbroken nineteen-year-old boy who Crow had abandoned was long gone. Regis’s mouth was an angry line. “Walk in front. If you run, I’ll make you sorry. Go left from this alley, and then take a left at the fountain.”


“Regis—”


“Shut up,” Regis said. “We can talk once we’re somewhere safe.”
Hero and criminal. Brute force and subtle charm. Jonathan White and Crow Belcane are polar opposites, but if they want to rescue the man they both love, they’ll have to work together.

After visiting his former lover, Crow knows only one thing: he loves Regis and he will do anything to reclaim him. But before his very eyes, Regis is abducted. Kidnapped by high-end slavers. Only Regis’s infuriating partner, Jonathan—a dangerous vigilante—is willing to help.

To infiltrate the slave ring, Jonathan and Crow disguise themselves as master and pet. As a slave, Crow is pushed to his limit. He’s chained, branded, whipped, and forced to obey Jonathan’s every order. But the longer he spends at Jonathan’s feet, the more natural his disguise begins to feel—and the more he likes it. As much as he hates Jonathan, they make a good team.

Both of them are devoted to Regis. Despite the overwhelming attraction between them, Jonathan is unwilling to betray his partner, and Crow is unwilling to come between them. But once the three of them are together again, all bets are off. With the world against them, they have only each other to cling to.

** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK, BY THE AUTHOR, IN RETURN FOR AN HONEST REVIEW **

Well, what can I say? I got exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be happier. Except maybe if there was more. Because, you know, there could be.
Hint, hint.

I loved the plot of this book, possibly more than the other one. Although things were tense and crazy in book 1, this one had a bit more of an adrenaline rush about it. I was constantly waiting for Crow and Jonathan to give in to their needs and attraction, constantly waiting for the other shoe to stop and for things to get all crazy again.

I absolutely loved that we got to see how real and vulnerable Crow can be and see more of his chemistry with Jonathan. He was such an awesome character in book 1 that I desperately wanted him to have his own book, and he got it.

When it comes to Peter, I'd love for him to get his own story, maybe when he'd old enough for the x-rated parts. He seemed so sweet and lovely. I could see him and Crow getting on really well together.

It broke my heart to see that Crow was so stuck. He loved Regis, wanted Jonathan and couldn't have either of them, because he was 'just' Regis' best friend and only lusted after by Jonathan. It completely killed me, every time he did whatever was in his power to help Jonathan remain faithful to Regis, even though it broke his heart every time.

Ugh! The feels in this book were just off the charts. It's definitely my favourite of the two, but I definitely hope there's more to come. If it were up to me, this series would go on forever. I don't want to stop reading about these characters.

This series has just become a top-priority re-read for me.

Favourite Quote

I have a few, so bear with me.

“Regis. Bright hair and sharp eyes. Gentle hands and sweet kisses. He remembered Regis more clearly than he remembered himself, and he clung to that memory like a drowning man clutching a piece of driftwood.”

““Should I kiss him for you?”
“Crow.”
“I could bring you one back,” he offered.”

“He looked at Jonathan and thought; This is the man who destroyed my life.”
