BLURB: Once upon a time an imprisoned prince was rescued by seven beautiful men.
For two years, Prince Snow has been locked away in the palace tower. On the night Queen Serena decides to do away with him for good, seven beautiful men with equally tragic pasts appear out of nowhere to rescue him.
Starved for affection, hurt, and in fear for his life, Snow is shown attention and care he has never known. The seven men teach him what real loyalty and love can be.
Doc, their leader, will heal him.
Sleepy, the most devoted, offers to become his love until the end of days.
All yearn to fight to gain Snow his rightful throne.
But Snow cannot justify his new friends putting their lives on the line for him. His heart will break forever if anything happens to Sleepy. Maybe it would be better for all if he just left…
You will love Prince Snow, but you will fall in love with Sleepy!
M/M romance, non-magical fantasy, abduction, imprisonment, rescue, hurt/comfort, and a sweet love story with a happy ending!
“Sleepy,” he whispered, and the lips, which had delved just below his jaw, came back to his mouth and pressed down until Snow opened again and their tongues dueled.
It was like so many things his mind could not contain. Like becoming fire. Like melting into the skin and bone and spirit of another being until there was no separation, one from the other. Like creating through song or painting or poetry a new existence but with their bodies.
In this time, nothing else seemed real but touch and pleasure and love. Two men moving in the deep of a chilly May night under the furs.
Two spirits connecting.
