"The writer has created a science fiction story rich in complexity and depth, while crossing into the romance and erotica genre." *** "...a mixture of science fiction and erotica... Expect a lot of world building but also a lot of romance and sex..."

Raised to wealth and privilege, Lilian’s future was shattered when her father was convicted of terrible crimes.  By law and custom she should have followed him into death to redeem her corrupt genetics.  Desperate to avoid execution for crimes not her own, Lilian accepts an indenture contract with a powerful warrior.  For three years he will have total control of her body, will and intellect.

 

Lucius Mercio’s wealth, influence, and power place him among the elite of the warrior caste.  Clever, ruthless, and unforgiving of his enemies, Lucius is rumored to have sold his soul for supernatural aid.  To achieve his ambitions, Lucius needs Lilian’s exceptional brilliance.  To acquire it, he saves her from a death sentence.  To make use of it, he must keep her alive.


Honor endures.
