This week in bondage: The Zinah Series

One thing that always irked me in Fantasy books was the high potential for super sexy stuff, that usually didn’t happen. There’s a plethora of concubines, slaves, servants and other naked people who would have to have sex if told to do so, and yet, people weren’t having sex. Or if they were, they were really tortured.

My first ever book was my attempt to meet high fantasy with happy, erotic sexy-time. Forbidden is the first book in a three book series in a fantasy kingdom ruled by and evil despot (who else?) whose counter point is a High-Priestess, protected by her status and her command over a private army, led by five elite warriors. Together the six of them (that’s right, one women, five guys) work to protect the people of this world. And, because what would YOU do if you had five super-hot warrior slaves? they’re all sexually involved, with the High Priestess their dominant Mistress (or is she?)

Okay, see, that paragraph right there is why publishers bring in professional blurb writers.

Forbidden

Zinahs, Book 1

The Land Between the Seas, a world in peril, is the responsibility of one woman. Cryessa, High Priestess of the land by birth and training, is strong and commanding, but locked in a life and death struggle to protect her people from the King, who bears a centuries old hate for the Temple.

Bound to her in slavery, prisoners of war and captives of fate, five men serve as her aides, her lovers, her slaves. One, however, is bound to her with something stronger, deeper, and utterly forbidden. Tamlohn, kidnapped and given to her in chains, chafes at his bindings, but continues to submit, in every way, because of his love and hers.

The political climate in the kingdom is steadily worsening. King Throlock, like his predecessors before him, rules the land only for his own pleasure. He has been continually thwarted by the efforts of the Priestess, while his multiple plots to overthrow or control the Temple have failed. Each failure has only made the King more petulant, vindictive, and determined to hurt those who hinder him, particularly the beloved and dedicated High Priestess.

Cryessa takes on the King and a centuries-old curse to protect her people, the temple, and the traditions she is entrusted to keep, no matter the cost to herself and her slaves. But, in a land steeped in ritual and magic, bound by rules that are indissoluble, can she protect herself from love —the highest form of treason?

Zinahs, Book 2

This book takes place after the climactic events in Forbidden, and combines a medieval style road trip story with “be submissive because that’s the way of my people and if you aren’t submissive to me someone else is going to MAKE you be submissive.”

The warriors of Den are unparalleled in their ferocity in battle and relentless pride, but their warrior-heart, nephew of the King, fiercest of all, was lost to Den when he disappeared into the ranks of the Temple army.

Anleeh spent five long years working to forget from where he’d come. No one would imagine that the calm and debonair Lord Justice was once a barbarian warrior who bathed in the blood of his enemies. Terrified of ever losing the control he fought so hard to gain, Anleeh vows never to return to his homeland of Den.

Sheltered all her life in the Temple, Siara longs for adventure. Saddled with grave responsibility due to her studious and steady nature, Siara wants to leave it all behind for a life of great adventure and purpose. When the newly crowned king and queen recruit her as an ambassador to the far off land of Den, she leaps at the opportunity. Her companion, Lord Anleeh, is not so eager.

If they are to succeed Anleeh must not only strip Siara of the trappings of civility, but demand her submission. Anything less than her complete obedience and loyalty will make them vulnerable to attack in a world where fighting and sex are considered close kin. Siara surprises him with not only her strength, but her passion and spirit. They discover exquisite pleasure and unexpected understanding in each other’s arms. Yet, Anleeh hides the truth of what he was from Siara, even as he feels his beast crawling beneath his skin.

But Siara has a secret of her own.

When Anleeh loses all control, succumbing to the unrestrained battle madness of his people, Siara must chose between saving herself and risking it all to save the man she loves.

Bound

Zinahs, Book 3

In this book the fan favorite warrior from Forbidden gets his story. Raised as a warrior servant to the High Priestess, Moregon has some unique needs in a wife. This book is my take on the Cinderella story, with American Gladiator-like challenges. 

Lord Moregon needs a wife but not just any wife will do.

Aketa is a farm girl, raised on the outskirts of the magnificent Great City. When a proclamation is issued, inviting all eligible females to attend a ball at the Palace for a chance to be Lord Moregon’s bride, Aketa dismisses it. She would never win the hand of a noble Lord. Her haunting past and scarred face are enough to drive any man away, never mind one who has his pick of any woman in the city.

But Moregon’s requirements in a wife are far from normal. She must be a woman of exceptional spirit and strength. Most importantly she must be brave enough to face the whips and chains of Moregon’s world.

When Aketa meets and falls in love with the handsome and kind Moregon she resolves to do anything, endure anything, to win him.

High Fantasy meets erotic romance, step right up!
