When Kin Ambassador Mehfawni Ruh visits the capitol planet of the Tarthian Empire, she meets the human Khyff Antonello, a master of pleasure who satisfies her every craving for illicit and taboo sex. She expected a fling, but found love.
Upon discovering her own people devastated his family, she longs to restore all they destroyed, but some tragedies can never be reversed. Her family demands she cast out the human, for if she keeps Khyff, she must deny her heritage and abdicate her future as ruler of her world. Mehfawni searches for an alternative, and stumbles upon Khyff’s darkest secret. Now, she must determine whether his fragile trust is the response of love and a healing heart or a ruse for revenge.
This is a rich story, full of interesting characters with deep and complex histories, but a rather predictable storyline.
Khyff, a former sex slave, is once again forced to use his body to save his brother. The book follows his emotional journey in learning to be loved for who he is and not what he can do and confronting his past. Mehfawni is confronting culture shock, coming from a matriarchy where men are kept in harems, into one where men fully expect to be treated as equals. And she soon wonders if her people are any better then those who subjugated Khyff.
While the story has some interesting twists, it isn’t overly original. There were several chances for Mahfawni could have discovered Khyff’s secret, but it was passed up in favor of the usual romance faire of half truths and irrational overreaction. While this is not a bad storyline and works with in the context of the story, but it just could have been done in more interesting ways.
Overall, a wonderful story, but it lacks the punch of it’s predecessor.
