I want a chimera!!!! This was a great read and now I am eager to read more of Mark's books.
I can't believe I finished the whole book in just two hours.

A very sweet story, easy to read, too. I wish it were longer, more detailed, but it's still enjoyable as it is.

Pavel is a young beggar who prostitutes himself for food to feed himself and his unlikely companion and friend, Odo. Prince Wilhelm is obsessed with Pavel and follows him, lusting after him, all the while knowing that he’s to be married to Catherine as soon as his father can pin him down to a date. When the two men finally meet, their attraction quickly blossoms into more as Wilhelm shows Pavel that he wants to be more than a means for food, and Pavel trusts Wilhelm with his secret about Odo.

Really enjoyed this one. A little different than I'm use to with Mark's books. Pavel was a sweet, loyal man. Wilhelm was a very unbiased man, even more so considering his background. Perfect couple. Very sweet:)

Mark has once again introduced us to some great characters and a fantastic tale. This was a fun read with an ending I didn't expect. Then again, I should be used to that by now. :)

I live in Melbourne, Victoria, in the land of Oz. According to my own Teenage mis-adventures, I am just an ordinary guy with a penis which likes to get me into trouble…a lot. I’ve seduced trees, copulated with watermelons, and had nice old ladies pick ants off my naked body. Yep, that’s me. Mark Alders. All round nice guy and with my brain firmly in my pants, exactly where it belongs!

So what about
