Though warned of the Tellurian slave's uncooperative nature, Guild Assassin Dzer-Jin Vonn is intrigued when the alluring redhead promises to obey him and be the best slave ever. Her prior owner misused her but did not quench her spirit; her tongue cuts with amusing precision.
Abducted from Earth by aliens, ripped from life as she knows it, she gives her new master only the label "slave" to call her by. She's landed in a culture where violence is foreplay. Yet her sexy master stands apart from his peers; he shows compassion.
When Dzer-Jin is challenged to slice her skin for public titillation, she agrees to the display with no bonds but trust. He earns status for her obedience but she frets he'll tire of his "pet" if she doesn't service his sexual appetites. The passion seething between them terrifies her. Is her desire to escape to Earth stronger than her need to serve Dzer-Jin's lust - or her own?
I love Adam Howden, so this wasn't purchased because I liked the book or the author. He's utterly fantastic and it's worth getting it just to hear Anders read you to sleep.
