Alone, Andreas toils on a remote farmstead for a Spartan overlord. When a kryptes enters his world, Andreas fears for his life. The dread warriors stalk and kill helots—like Andreas’ father—as part of their training.
Andreas sees only one way to save himself: he must tame the fearsome warrior.
But what began as self-preservation develops into attraction. Yearning for the company of someone other than his ferret Ictis, Andreas decides to trust the Spartan warrior and risk the fate that claimed his father.
Born to rule by the sword, Theron sees the world as his and acts accordingly, taking everything Andreas offers and reaching for more. However, love between men in Sparta is considered shameful and requires either exile or suicide to redeem Sparta’s honor. Now, only the gods can save them from the terrible price Sparta extracts from men who desire other men.
I have to be honest and say I really loved the way this author wrote this time period and these two men together! I was grabbed from the start of this book and could not put it down.
You really can not help feeling so bad for Andreas character being so alone like he is. He is also so strong and caring which made me love his characters too! I was so nervous for him when Theron starts coming around and what his intentions were towards Andreas.
I loved the way this author wrote these characters and this story! She had you feeling everything that Andreas and Theron went through while you were reading this book and also had you rooting for these men to find happiness in a time where two men together was a huge no no and they could be killed if found out.
So i will leave this review with… I loved this book and would recommend it!
This is the first book I’ve read by Kayla Jameth, and I’m really impressed. This is a touching story of compassion, bravery, self-discovery and love.
It’s clear that a lot of research went into capturing the time period and mythology for this book. I found the story immediately engaging. The introspection and attention the detail really brings Andreas’ lonely world to life for me.
The sex scenes are well written and hot. And I like that this is a strong story that has good sex scenes where appropriate.
I’ll keep following this series for sure, and I’m excited to find out what’s coming up next for Andreas and Theron.
Kayla Jameth grew up on the family farm in Ohio. An unrepentant tomboy, she baled hay, raised cattle, and her father taught her to weld before she graduated from high school.
She attended Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University and later, Texas A&M University in her pursuit of veterinary medicine, taking her far away from her rural roots.
But it wasn’t all hard work for her, her sojourn as the princess of the Celestial Kingdom left her with the title “Sir” and a costume closet the envy of many knights, lords, and ladies.
After declaring for years that she was not an author, Kayla now finds herself writing m/m erotic romance outside of Houston, Texas. While you can take the girl out of the country, you can’t turn her into a city slicker. Kayla would still rather be outside getting down and dirty with the boys.
She shares a full house with her favorite animals: a cat, two guinea pigs, a gerbil, three guppies, as well as her husband, son, and daughter.
