Publisher's Summary

Get the audiobook edition of Regina Watts's ultra-steamy first harem novel - and hear the story read to you by Sierra Kline!

Rorke Burningsoul, Paladin of Weltyr, has been betrayed.

With the object of his most recent quest stolen out from under him, Rorke has been left for dead in the treacherous Nightlands: a place hateful to all surface-dwellers, full of things the human - even the elfin - eye has never seen. Gray-faced berich dwarves, frightful half-spider misshapens - and, of course, the sensual and dark-complexioned durrow elves, a race of power-hungry women who live in service to the goddess Roserpine.

Praise Weltyr, Rorke is rescued by two such splendid durrow - and told that, in exchange for his life, he must now submit to slavery as, among other things, breeding stud to the female race. He willingly agrees, hopeful that his obedience will help him find a way out of the Nightlands and back to the business of retrieving the lost artifact: But when the Materna of the durrow city decides during his appraisal that she needs a new guard, he is soon surprised to find himself taken, heart and soul, by the exquisite durrow high priestess known as Valeria.

But Valeria's need of a personal guard is not just some ruse to keep her new slave in her bedroom without controversy - would that it were. The high priestess' life is at stake, and as her assassins' attacks grow more frequent all the time, she needs the assistance of a man capable of keeping himself alive along with her.

Who better than a paladin she's seen in dreams for decades?

Mature listeners only! This fantasy harem adventure in the style of Dungeons & Dragons contains explicit encounters between the lucky hero and many gorgeous women he encounters on his quest. Use discretion when purchasing.

Not for me.

Femdom, BDSM and a super simpy and cuckold MC.
Not really what I look for and there is no story for a long stretch of the book with the quest for revenge/vengeance and his freedom being put off.

Such a unique story!

It's easy to get distracted by the compelling adult scenes and not notice the complex subversion of the MC's and supporting characters moral values. Two scions of opposing religions vieing to corrupt each other through sex and power games is a surprisingly compelling plot that I don't believe I've ever seen before.

If you can't accept a MC that is willing to be dominated for any reason, this book isn't for you.

If you're still reading, by all means buy this book!

It's a delightfully dark and extremely sexy take on 'drow' society and illustrates the defilement of a 'good' man in loving detail. Highly recommend for anyone who can deal with a less dominant MC! Even if that isn't you cup of tea, check it out... you might surprise yourself.

Instant guilty pleasure for me!

Narration is outstanding.

Dark and fun

TLDR: Paladin has a BDSM (he ends up as every letter at some point, but a lot is femdom) adventure with dark elves while being held as a slave, some romance, some action, MFF+ elements. Strong recommend.



Rorke Burningsoul is an unrepentant paladin of Weltyr, and if he needs to smite demons or help people that are maybe not as human as most on the surface would like, he's going to do it.

While on a holy quest he ends up making a vow to be a slave (under duress) and goes to the Durrow (dark elf) city of El'ryh. While he is disrespected, mistreated etc some as a slave, he also finds that the Durrow enjoy a man who's as smooth with his words as he is with a sword.

In short, he is verrry popular with the ladies, both for being a badass and being a well spoken and honorable paladin, and much of the book is erotic in nature. As you might have guessed a lot of this has BDSM tones, given his slavery. Also romance, which is a hair surprising, but very well done.

Just to be clear, Rorke at one point or another experiences every letter in that acronym, although it is mostly Dom/Sub stuff back and forth. It does make sense in the story as he already submits himself body and soul to Weltyr, so not a big stretch.

There is no cucking, hell there are barely any males in the story proportionally speaking. Not sure where the other reviewer got that.

There is some action which is well written, has heavy D&D feel to it.


Also, shoutout to Sierra, was a little unsure at first but she really nails the feel of the story and the durrow voices (esp Valeria) in particular.

Excellent Erotica Lackluster Story

This was overall an enjoyable audiobook. The characters were a bit simple but not overly so. The story plot was interesting but also a bit simple. The last hour or so of the story was rather a let down for me. However the eroticism was quite something.

MINOR SPOILERS....

My only real issue was that this assassination could have been foiled so easily in my opinion. The prime conspirators all have acid blood. It would be really easy to uncover assassins with acid blood. But this obvious clue to uncovering the identify of the shapeshifters is overlooked.

It was hard not to enjoy this audiobook even with it's flaws. Aside from the ending I liked it.
