Summary

Pregnant and running for her life, Nora flees for the sanctuary known as Morala, an all-female asylum. Instead, she finds herself on Kilton, a sanctuary for criminals running from their sentencing. Now Nora must adapt to her new home, and do so quickly before her baby arrives, and deal wit the ever-present reality that if she's found, her fate could be worse than what she ran away from.

Grave, an ex-gladiator who fled captivity many years ago, built the sanctuary known as Kilton along with two others. Feared by all and unable to control his demons, Grave finds himself growing further away from civilization. Despite his self-isolation, anyone seeking asylum must be granted access by Grave, and when he steps out into a storm to greet their newest arrival, instead of the usual hardened criminal, he is surprised to see a purple-haired pixie at his gates.

Not knowing what Nora runs from, Grave grants her the asylum she seeks, but something about this pixie is different from anyone he has ever met. When he discovers the secret Nora hides behind her clothes, will Grave push her away like he has everyone else, or will he fight her battles and his own to find happiness?

Great book by all standard!

I loved every bit of the book. I got drawn into it right from the start when Nora fled Yunnika, and meeting Grave the hero. His strength, just marvelous. The twists and Introduction of new characters all made sense. No matter how strong one is, love can penetrate their heart and that's Exactly what Nora did!

Narration was on point too. the change of voices almost made it feel I knew how the characters spoke. I didn't have to wonder who was speaking before their names were mentioned. it was fun! I love the book!

Awesome Story!!

I totally enjoyed listening to this book. The romance between Grave and Nora was touching and the suspense and intrigue of the plot was excellent. The science fiction aspect of the story line with a medieval twist was intriguing. I’m totally looking forward to listening to the next book in the series. The narrator does an excellent job in bringing the story to life. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun, pleasure, and excitement!

I was so pleasantly surprised by this book. I started out just listening here and there because I thought it would be mostly erotic. But the story and the characters captured me, and I found myself craving jumping into their world every chance I got.
There is action, mystery, romance, intimacy, etc - turns out it has alllll the elements of eroticism to turn on your mind, heart, and spirit too! Well done L.H. Whitlock - an original storyline, great characters, and a beautiful world you’ve created.
The performance was good - I still gave him 5 stars because of how he was able to change his voice for all the characters. He just needed to choose a way to pronounce “Rycker” and stick with it, lol. Still, he made the characters fun!
