“As a general rule, you won’t find the love of your life while you’re on your knees under a table.”
-- Helios Dayspring

Pasha is a slave, whoring for travelers at the most dangerous bar on Warlan. He has no memory, no future of his own, yet deep inside Pasha knows that that he is meant for better things. The day that Pasha spots the dangerous pirate in the bar, he knows that he mustn't let the stranger slip away, regardless of what he must do to attract his attention.

Captain Griffin Hawke spent the greater part of a decade searching for his lost king, only to find Helios Dayspring crouched between his knees, swathed in the robes and shackles of a whore. Though he is appalled by the downfall of his king, the hardened officer finds himself falling for the allure of the sensual creature who has taken his place. Returning Helios to his position on the throne is the only right thing to do, yet Griffin knows that in doing so, he risks losing his lover forever.

“A whore is a whore is a whore, unless he’s something else completely. I guess I must be an uncommon whore.”
-- Helios Dayspring

Publisher's Note: This book contains male/male sexual practices.



Ok I have to admit I was not expecting this story to be very good. Wow was I surprised.

Belinda McBride has created an intricate universe filled with endearing characters and a fantastic story.

There is a lot to be said about discovering your past, and when you discover the truth about Pasha’s past and the things that he endured you will just want to hug him. I know I know it is terribly girlie of me but it is true. This character has a huge amount of adversity to overcome in this book and he takes things for the most part in stride. And anyone who has ever fallen for someone they have known for years will relate to Griffin’s dilemma. He knows he needs to bring Helios back but he cannot help the way he feels for this man and hopes beyond hope that he will not get his heart broken.

Yes this is a gay romance. But the depth of the story is such that I think even those of you who do not necessarily like male/male stories will find this one endearing.
