If you haven't read Jaid Black's books before then this might be a shock to you. If you don't care for stories where women are sexually submissive and men are dominant then this may not be for you. This has some mild BDSM and the story is not your typical bodice ripper romance. This story is set many years into the future when females are a rarity. Women in this society are nothing more than sexual chattel. All women are genetically engineered to be pretty. Men spend years saving up the money to buy one for marriage. The story about the escaped convict with a heart of gold was ok. The sex is extremely graphic which may or may not be to your liking. The subplot about the humans turning into vampires was actually more interesting to me.
3 stories in 1. This book is quite steamy, as are all of Ms. Black's books. Set in the year 2249 AD, a scientist must find a cure for what is turning sub humans into vampire like creatures. Along the way she is taken by Kerick, who wishes to master her. There are other characters you meet along the way and this does have quite a good story to it not just steamy scenes.
This was the first Jaid Black book I read and I'm not impressed. As far as the sci-fi/fantasy plot, there wasn't one. And in most scenes, the gratuitious sex seemed out of context and became redundant. It was almost like, Hey let's put some sex into this scene just because we can...reminds me of a musical where the actors just break out into song for the heck of it. IMHO, there's hot steamy and then there just plain ridiculous. This book fit the ridiculous category. Besides, I discovered that I don't have the taste for bondage/submissiveness/slavery where the women are little more than sex slaves.
On the eve of his execution, Death Row inmate Kerick Riley overpowers the guard and escapes the violent penal colony that has been his prison for over 15 yrs. On the run to find answers he seeks, the frim-faced, gray-eyed Kerick has 2 things on his mind; revenge and a woman.........
