Sorcerer Warin is in a pickle. His sister has been kidnapped and he has to pay a ransom to get her back. He decides to kidnap the King’s son, Benedict to raise the ransom money. Benedict finds he is naked and trussed up in a strange castle with the most sensual man he has ever met. What follows is the best few days in Benedict’s life but when the ransom comes, Warin has to let Benedict go…or does he?
This is a short, hot story that will leave you eager for some afternoon lovin’ of your own. Shawn Lane delves into a world where Kings abound, ransom and kidnappings are the norm for the rich folk and loving a man is wrong. I don’t want to get into the story in too much detail as it is a short sixty-six page story. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
This author is one of my favorites to read, especially for the short, hot naughty stories that leave you panting for more. SORCERER’S LOVER is a quick, hot read that will take the chill off an early spring evening. The writing is tight, the characters multi-dimensional and the storyline keeps a brisk pace that has the reader eager to see what happens next. The sex scenes are at times tender yet also very erotic.
Meet Sorcerer Warin. He is in a jam as someone has kidnapped his sister and now he needs to raise a ransom fast. He tried other methods to raise the money but alas, it didn’t pan out. Now resorting to kidnapping, Warin finds himself drawn to Benedict, his captive. A chance meeting a year before has left Warin wanting Benedict with a fevered passion. These two characters are fun, naughty and definitely had me intrigued from the beginning. Both characters were interesting and the author kept the suspense up as the sparks flew between them. The sex between them is hot enough to melt icicles and had me squirming in my seat as I fanned my face. There were a few secondary characters that felt like they were just scene fillers which were a disappointment. They sounded intriguing and I would have loved to know more about their back-story as well. What I really wished was that the author had made this into a little bit longer story. I would have loved to know more about Warin’s sister and her kidnapping that seemed to go off in the wayside once Warin got Benedict in his arms. That was really the only point in the story I found fault with.
SORCERER’S LOVER is a fast, decadent treat that will heat your afternoon up nicely. I can’t wait to see what happens next for Warin and Benedict in the sequel. Shawn Lane is a talented author who knows how to hook a reader and leave them breathless. If you are looking for a short, hot story to enjoy then grab SORCERER’S LOVER and settle in for a fun filled afternoon.
