What would you pay for your freedom?

 

Caught by a powerful lord from the alternate realm of Arkavia, Taya’s offered the chance to avenge the dead, save her home world, and win her freedom.

 

Her days of stealing supplies and surviving among the remnants of Earth are over, but can she afford the price of Lord Thane’s deal?

 

Excerpt

Thane clenched his jaw, took two giant steps forward and bent to catch her by the middle. When he straightened, he threw her over his shoulder. His gauntlet armoured fingers dug into her thighs. His swords’ hilts stared back at her, tempting and teasing.

Her fingers itched to wrap around the smooth leather and yank one from its sheath.


If you’re going down, go down fighting, her dad’s life motto played in her memory.


If only her hands weren’t bound. Instead, she flopped uselessly as Thane strode toward the gate. His shoulder dug into her stomach and her face smacked against the cold metal back plate of his black armour. She had a perfect view of his ass. Fitting, since he acted like one.


What did she expect? Preferential treatment for a captive? How was she any different than any of the other slaves brought through this portal?


Thane walked unhindered through the thick air. The blue haze cleared. The buzzing stopped.


She wasn’t dead.


Thane pulled her down from his shoulder and set her on her feet in the snow in front of him. Over his shoulder, the other men walked through the gate leading the horses.


Cool air brushed her skin. The winter breeze contained exotic scents of Arkavia, smelling of pine, but different, more floral.


Thane watched her expectantly.


“I may have overreacted.”
