In a fantasy land where a cursed monster roams alone through a dark forest Killan, youngest son of the House of Carnack, travels. An innocent young man he knows little of carnal desires.
He soon learns.
Innocence stolen but the memory of it buried, he falls into the arms of the four men who in their own way will help soothe him and calm the raging heat in his veins: the teacher (from who Killian will learn many worthwhile lessons), the bodyguard (who will protect his royal master and be rewarded with sensuous pleasures rather than gold), the dark-eyed prince (who may be more devil than saviour and likes all who serve him to do so on their knees) and the hurt man (who will help Killan to face the monster that still hungers for him).
The heat of desire rages within Killan. He needs these men as much as he needs the air he breathes, but is unaware of the power he wields and that they too need him.
This story starts with fear and pain, travels through delight and confusion but there is love to be had, and healing too; healing given and received.
The monster feels the heat also and his thoughts turn again and again to the prince of Carnack, but Killan journeys further and further from him and ever closer to the one who will ultimately save him.
This is the author's first full-length m/m erotic novel, and is strictly adults only. It contains dark imagery and graphic scenes.
Interesting story, set, scene, atmosphere. Plot in general. But too long and didn't really like the ending. Middle part was annoying too. Had some interesting kinks, but too long and too much humiliation. And many times main characters acted very stupid, so you stop liking them after that.
