Description

A prince without power In a land where magic is commonplace, Prince Llyskel has none. He can't command spells, he has never been taught to fight, and as the fifth son of the King, he will never rule. Everyone believes he's a weakling, most of all himself. Powerlessness is Llyskel's problem-and his pleasure. In his secret fantasies, the prince dreams of nothing more than finding himself helpless at another man's hands... particularly the hands of Captain Ariv of the Guards. Then Ariv makes Llyskel's dream a reality, and as the powerless prince surrenders to the soldier's desire, he finds his own true strength at last. But a web of royal politics is closing around Llyskel, threatening to tear him from his lover, and it will take all his newfound courage to escape... ___________________________

About Blaine D Arden

Blaine D. Arden is a purple-haired, forty-something author of queer romance mixed with fantasy, mystery, and magic who sings her way through life in platform boots. Born and raised in Zutphen, the Netherlands, Blaine spent many hours of her sheltered youth reading, day dreaming, making up stories and acting them out with her Barbies. After seeing the film "An Early Frost" as a teen in the mid-eighties, an idealistic Blaine wanted to do away with the negativity surrounding homosexuality and strove to show the world how beautiful love between men could be. Our difference is our strength, is Blaine's motto, and her stories are often set in worlds where gender fluidity and sexual diversity are accepted as is. When not writing or reading, Blaine has singing lessons and hopes to be in a band someday. Supporting Blaine in pursuing her dreams and all matters regarding household, sons, and cairn terrier, is her long-suffering husband for over twenty years. Blaine is an EPIC Award winning author and has been published by Storm Moon Press, Less Than Three Press, and Wilde City Press. Her scifi romance "Aliens, Smith and Jones" received an Honourable Mention in the Best Gay Sci-Fi/Fantasy category of the Rainbow Awards 2012.
