Blurb:This is a short story sequel to His Princess (Men of Valor 3) and a prequel to Men of Valor 4. Approximately 9000 words.
Oma should fear the fierce warrior whose captive she’s become after she is seized while spying. The penalty is the lash of his whip. The ache in her body is not from the sting of his flogger but from the scorching heat of his touch. Still, she has to resist him if she wishes to safeguard the secrets she hides.
Jide is the prince’s closest guard. His duty is to keep the royal family safe, so he should deliver instant justice to the spy in his chambers. Yet the intense fire in the eyes of his beautiful prisoner Oma stirs him beyond that of any other maiden in his past. When his self-control is tried which will he choose—hand her over for punishment or defy the prince and protect her?
I enjoyed this short tale of intrigue and romance in an African royal court by two members of the royal staff, one a spy out of need, the other the guard who will capture her and her heart. It is well written for a short story and I'm looking forward to more from these characters. I heard the author is writing the sequel.
