SUMMARY
Jaren Caradoc nearly lost his ship and his life when he fell under the spell of a black widow sorceress, but for the timely intervention of her personal slave. To repay the young woman, he plans to purchase her freedom when he finds she's being auctioned off as a virgin sex slave. Required to consummate the relationship on the grounds, he's soon caught in a web of attraction, guilt, and feelings he thought long-dead.
 
Taimi has adored Jaren from the moment he married her treacherous mistress. When he buys her contract, she thinks it's a dream come true. But after their one night together, instead of becoming his lover, she is asked to be an employee – a medic on his spaceship. With her newly acquired knowledge of his kiss, his touch, can she really pretend her feelings don't exist?
 
Hearing he is back on the Lorus system, Jaren's ex-wife, Lady Ethlinda, breaks out of prison. Officials impound Jaren's ship, leaving them stranded during the system's notorious Festival of Fertility – and vulnerable to Ethlinda's plans for revenge.

A world where the slavery is the norm may be heaven or hell, depending on which side a person falls.

Jaren Caradoc is luckily just visiting this planet as he finalizes his divorce. His unwise marriage to a rich and spell-binding sorceress nearly takes everything he owns, including his life. When he finds out the person who helped saved him is considered property to be sold, he goes against his ethics and buys her.

Taimi's life is defined by servitude. She knows nothing else. To turn against her owner is a terrible crime which will most likely end in a shortened life. Still, she couldn't let the handsome space captain, Jaren, suffer.

The world building is light. For those who have read many space faring stories, it is easy to visualize this world. For those new to erotica with aliens and space ships, it still should be clear, especially as there is an element of magic.

This sweet space opera is a quick and enjoyable read. The characters are easy to understand. The plot flows smoothly as each scene makes sense. It's a bit predictable as the imprisoned sorceress isn't so easily chained and left behind. The sex scenes in this story are mild for jaded erotic readers. For those who have read the early 1980s bodice rippers, this book may bring back fond memories. It is similar to some of the earlier works by Angela Knight when she first wrote space opera erotica.

Recommended to paranormal romance reader who want to try a little space opera on for size.
