Genre: LGBT Fantasy/Mythology

When the handsome shepherd Tenthus falls asleep naked on the hillside, he's surprised and delighted to wake and find himself in the arms of a gorgeous male muse named Euterpius. Their passionate encounter is short-lived, because it angers Euterpius's father, Zeus. Then Zeus curses Tenthus to the life of a cicada, winged, immortal, and rising every seventeen years for a month to exist on sex and song.

The only way to break free of the curse is to find true love with a mortal man, no easy task despite the lovely, nubile youths trained to be Tenthus's consort. None are quite right until Tenthus meets the captivating, mysterious Phaedrus, and instantly falls for him. Phaedrus even craves the dark, deviant sex that Tenthus offers.

There's just one problem: Phaedrus has been trained by Tenthus's enemy, in hopes of ridding the world of Tenthus. Even though Phaedrus has started to fall in love, Tenthus has to die. If he doesn't, Phaedrus will, unless their love can defeat Death itself.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, bondage/tethering, dubious consent, moresome (orgy), strong violence.
