Blurb: Bored with the privileges and duties of a member of the first family, Ferro finds himself in the slave tents as a consequence of his antics, knowing he’ll be rescued before long. At least, that’s the way it’s always worked before. This time, though, Ferro finds himself sold as a sheep-tender along with an intriguingly mysterious slave called Lysias. For the first time, Ferro’s met someone who seems immune to his wiles, and he’ll soon learn that Lysias has more to teach him than just shepherding.
Review: Ferro is used to being sent to the slave-market as a punishment for his deeds, it is now a game for him to see how obnoxious he can be and how long he can hold off being sold before his father’s men come to get him back. Only this time another slave named Lysias insists they be sold together. Lysias recognizes something in Ferro and decides that he will be the one to bring the other slave to heel.
Lysias recognizes that Ferro needs a gentle but firm hand to bring him to a commitment. Ferro has never been able to commit to anything and he knows it brings his family shame but has never been able to do anything about it until he meets Lysias. These two characters seem too different, at first, but as we see them together we see that they are actually really well suited. Lysias brings a strong but firm hand, tempered with kindness and understanding to Ferro. While Ferro brings a little bit of life and disorder that Lysias needs.
I think that a lot of people will enjoy this book as it isn’t too heavy or too fluffy. It’s about a man who feels constrained by a prophesy at his birth and about the man who shows him the way through it. The sex is fantastic and erotic with a bit of bondage thrown in to take it to scorching levels.
So I will recommend this to those who love hot sex, Ancient Greece, a bit of bondage and a happy ever after.
