Blurb: To the Werewolf Fight League, Tor is a champion fighter. To his master, he’s nothing more than a slave. When Tor’s mate Jin is killed in a brutal cage fight, Tor never wants to fight again. His master, Marrack has other plans for him.
Sky is a beautiful young sex slave, trained to perform sex on whoever buys him. But Sky is special; he’s a virgin and the man who owns him will be very lucky to be the first.
When Marrack buys Sky for Tor, his plan to get Tor back in the cage is set in motion. How could the big were resist mating the beautiful boy? Marrack has one month to get Tor back into shape and fighting again. Everything is riding on this –Tor’s reputation, Sky’s freedom, and Marrack’s money.

Review: Tor is the WWFL heavyweight champion…technically. One month ago, he was almost fatally wounded and his mate was raped and killed, in front of him. Now, he refuses to fight. His body has healed, but his heart is still grieving. Unfortunately, as a slave, he is still under his master, Merrick’s control. And Merrick is betting that the beautiful, virgin sex slave is exactly the man to bring Tor back to fight ready status.
This was a really enjoyable read. The world that Lynn Lorenz has created is very different from the normal Were/shifter romance. In this world, Were are feared by humans and breed and enslaved. The fighters of the WWFL only fight to protect their mates. In exchange, they are given relatively comfortable existences, albeit under guard.
This is a very sexy romance. Sky is a virgin when Tor claims him. Having the big, sexy were as his personal plaything is better than anything he’d been taught in his harem. Their play sometimes takes on a mild bondage tone, but never anything too hardcore.
Of course, Lynn Lorenz can’t write without sneaking in a bit of angst. Amidst all that hot lovin’ questions loom. Will Tor accept Sky? Not just as his mate, but as his love? Will Sky stay with Tor or accept a deal for his freedom? And all the while, Tor’s dead mate, Jin, is the unseen “other man”.
I really enjoyed this story. It is dark, in places, but beautifully written and paced. Highly recommend this for readers who are drawn to darker paranormal, sexy werewolves and beautiful sex slaves.
