From the author of the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Nominee for Best First Series...
She's a queen with deadly enemies and dark sexual longings. She yearns to give herself over to the hands of another, even at the point of a blade. But can she trust her sacred medallion to protect her from the royal assasin who wants to seize her throne, her body, and her heart?
A yearning for submission.
A dark need for control.
A passion that consumes two lovers.
Everything they thought they believed can change on the edge of a knife's blade. Betrayal can become trust. Hatred can become love. Submission transforms into a humbling gift that cannot be denied.
(Warning: This short story is very steamy and contains behavior that ought be consensually negotiated with a partner in real life.)
Story approximately 5k.
Includes two excerpts from HQN Nocturne romance novels.
