Hired on board the space frigate as an assassin, the captain and crew are unaware that Lewell’yn is actually a master spy for the N.I.S. or Naknti Intelligence Service. His assignment is to locate and rescue the lost colonists of Akanti. Lewell’yn is certain the latest batch of slaves bound for the brutal Kyrth and their blood ritual are his target.
Identifying the Akanti is merely the first stage, now Lewell’yn must remove them safely from the frigate and bring them home. If that wasn’t enough of a logistical nightmare he has to deal with his own personal issues. He’s never known exactly what he is though it’s definitely not everyone else on board; extreme mood swings and a desire for blood and violence can’t be normal. He’s found that sex appeases the animal within so Lewell’yn’s been calming his blood lust with the ship’s medic, Kayron.
But the moment Lewell’yn comes in contact with Tian, one of the slaves he’s been sent to rescue everything changes. His fixation with Tian borders on madness. Luckily, the tiny Akanti is a willing participant for any and all sexual encounters Lewell’yn engineers. Saving the slaves is the objective; saving Tian from Lewell’yn is another matter entirely. And surprisingly Tian insists on adding Kayron to their crowded bed. Writing up this mission should be very interesting to say the least.
An intense blend of action, drama, and sensuality, Tian’s Hero is a terrific escape into a future world where love is limitless. The first book in The Akanti series offers suspense amidst intriguing twists and turns, as well as scorching hot sexual encounters. Though at first Lewell’yn seems to be a one sided character he evolves into an incredibly complex man with the help of the two men who love him. Tian and Kayron balance the wildness of their lover and give everyone a great surprise or two. The only glitch in an otherwise riveting story is the very first chapter where things start happening so quickly it feels like the reader is scrambling to catch up and get into the rhythm of the book. Having said that, Tian’s Hero is a heart pounding, orgasmic tale that readers will be hard pressed to put down. Definitely looking forward to the next story!
