This is EXACTLY what I wanted. I love capture/slave stories where there are severe situations - hurt/comfort abound. Great personalities on all the men (I didn't like them allbut they certainly made sense) and even a fit twists and things I didn't see coming. The sex was hot - and this is a re read for sure. J.C. Owens is just that type of author for me.

Well written and edited story with few surprises. Most "dialogue" is through internal musings, which is not a favorite thing of mine. I wasn't able to get a good feel or mental picture of anyone as descriptions were lacking.

I feel this story is about the different shades/sides of love. That it is m/m makes it doubly nice for me.Two princes in their own way love the same man. One prince's love could be termed selfish, destructive or even childishly petty. Yet it is still love because in his mind (warped as it appeared), he loves this man. Or, perhaps it was just a 'it's my toy to break, you can't have it' mentality, or just a terrible obsession, pure and simple.The second prince didn't start off with roses either bu [...]

I like parts of this, but overall the choppy style detracts. Darcel is very passive and takes on a female role. Harlech is somewhat vague at the beginning, but his amazing transformation from barbarian rapist to tender lover is somewhat unconvincing. The use of sex as a cure for PTSD would be slightly more believable if the sex wasn't with someone who had previously raped him and kept him as a sex slave. And finally, if you have even a slight understanding of economics the whole story makes no s [...]

I don't know what happened here but this was more of a sketch of a book for me. Very rushed start of the story with no time for emotional connection to the MC. Lack of dialog in some places was excruciating. Lots of telling instead of showing. Its so unlike Owens

I found this book very confusing. The back and forth time jumps at the beginning took me awhile to get into and then why the betrayal happened never really made sense to me. I never felt we really see the relationship happen. It was a lot of telling and not a lot of showing.

I can't even remember how many times I've re-read bits of this novel. There's just something about Darcel. Probably the way he never quite gives up no matter what.

Story good, structure needed workThe timing was a little confusing, but I liked the story itself. The characters needed a bit more fleshing out. There was decent framework as far as world building goes, but I would have been interested to learn more more about the respective cultures. As for the timing problem, there were a LOT of flashbacks, especially in the first third or so. They weren't formatted differently, nor were there any breaks between present and past. Very confusing, especially bec [...]

This book has an interesting premise and would definitely give it five stars - if only it was longer. The way it is now, it seems very rushed and confusing - especially during the time changes and the Demon's presence, which seems to me to be either really badly described or completely redundant. Taking more time with descriptions of the events, rather than the sex scenes or minor details, would make the book great, the way it is, it's just average.

My Rating 2.5: The story begins with a glimpse of Darcel in prison, being tortured by a demon that may or may not have been a product of insanity. The demon showed him truths that he refused to believe—that the prince he loved betrayed him by throwing him in prison and then sold him to the enemy. When Darcel comes back to himself, he thinks he’s been recaptured, and the hardest thing for him to accept is that the enemy may be more trustworthy than the man he thought he loved.First of all, I [...]

2.5 starsI liked this story because it drew me in and wouldn't let go despite the wtf moments. I generally enjoy J.C. Owens' stories, but this was one of the weaker ones. I didn't like it because of the wtf moments:(view spoiler)[-What was the point of the demon? Was he a real physical entity or just an illusion constructed by a man driven to madness by despair and loneliness and abuse? What was the point of it manifesting at the end in the desert? -Darcel was abused, beaten, raped and isolated [...]

Funny enough, this was a bit too predictable for me - despite all those "secrets and lies" It was not actually bad, and the style of writing was even good (despite Darcel's lengthy inner musings - something extremely popular among authors, it seems, and something I dislike more and more, btw!), but I did not really get involved in this story and none of the characters grew on me. I finished it with a luke-warm feeling and it is definitely not a book I will read again: barely 3 stars

Loved itas usual I loved this story. All of J.C. owens books are so well written that I try and read any new ones I haven't read yet. This is a great story with strong situation of emotional pain and suffering. I'm sad that darcel went through all of it, happy that his man came through for him. It was really good.

I really like J.C. Owens! The books aren't necessarily the best written, have the most intelligent characters, or the best plot. But all her books are written in some of my time period (made up or not) and the whole enemy captive theme. Which I'm a huge fan of so hard to fault something I probably just like because it hits all the right buttons.

The first half is so good, but the other half is not so great. But still I'll give it four stars, because I really love Darcel. He doesn't submit to the high king because he is forced to nor bribed with wonderful sex, but he remembers the gentleness and the evident of humanity and warmth despite of the barbarians title his own people give to the enemy.

Sci Fi. Interesting, good story, strong characters. Would have liked to know more about the son. Could have fleshed out relationship with Alasar and Caslendra and Alasar's love for Darcel. Not a ton of sex about a 3.5 on my hot scale. I would read this author again.

This was so good!!! I'm so so happy that Harlech was the one Darcel ended up with, I never warmed up to Alasar (too cold and what a jerk!!) I would love to see a sequel in the future, this was a such a wonderful story

This had the potential to be a great book but it was far too rushed. The plot was excellent but there wasn't enough set up (descriptions, backgrounds etc). Also, I doubt that Darcel was in any condition (mentally or physically) to take a lover so soon after years of rape and torture.

Just like The Ice Prince, this book took me one day to finish. This is great book to read. I hope he writes a follow up with Eldan being one of the main characters.

3.5 stars. The writing is very plain but the story is classic hurt/comfort (practically all hurt off screen though) and the main characters are very likable, the plot interesting. Quite enjoyed it.
