Passion. Addiction. Loyalty. Can true love bare its heart forever?
Alitus Vivaldi is a Better, an enhanced human bred for intelligence, discipline, and responsiveness. His combined talents in bed and politics take him from the Conqueror's favorite pleasure slave to her personal assistant. To help the Conqueror accomplish her secret agenda, Alitus forsakes his identity and pride, and surrenders himself to his darkest fear. Once nearly raped by a group of palace guards, when the empress asks him to have sex with a man to prove he's overcome his greatest fear, is his trust in the Queen of Quenchless Lust deeper than what his gentle and patient seducer evokes? Has she finally demanded more from Alitus than even his noble spirit can endure? Has she pushed him into the arms of another man?
Alitus was a Top Ten Finalist in the 2007 P&E Readers Poll for best novel.
