Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author and master of romance Bertrice Small welcomes you to the magical, sensual World of Hetar.

For Lara, a half faerie, half human, her beauty is a blessing and a curse. Sold into a Pleasure House by her father, she commits herself to a lifetime of servitude. But even in a place where pleasure is not censured but encouraged, her otherworldly beauty proves too much for her suitors.

When Lara escapes, she is introduced to a new way of life, and an incredible man who opens her eyes to the growing unrest among their people...and the extraordinary destiny that awaits her. Lara will journey the depths of desire and despair to find a love that will last an eternity - a love that will change Hetar forever.

Contains mature themes.

I would not listen around others

I was very happy to see more Bertrice Small books available. Small is wonderful at blending historical plot with wonderful characters. she is one of those authors that shows a romance novel can be more than sex every five pages. how ever I did forget that this story is more on the sexual side and sometimes found myself jumping ahead to get back to the story. I hope more in this series will come to audible

I love this Series

I enjoyed this book when I was 16 and I enjoy it at 32. Overall I love this story. I suggest to those who are new to it give it a chance. The main Character is slow to develop BUT really takes off toward the end but more so in the next books. She is only 14 and that is something to keep in mind throughout reading. My only issue was the accent the Narrator put on for Kilik. My favorite male Character in the series. Sounds like she is trying to mix in some french accent but then its comes and goes.
I can't wait for the other books to arrive on audible.

Excellent narrator

I was very impressed with Christine Rendel narration of Lara. She did a different voice character for each person in this book. Looking forward to book 2. Only one other narrator books was a different voice used for each character. He won many awards for narrating this series of books. Doing over 150 voice characters. I have read many of Bertrice Small books over the last 25 years. I have never been disappointed with any of her books. May she rest in peace.

Before you read this book!

Sex focused (and with a minor!). Filmsy plot, inconsistent character development. White washed beauty standard. "Bestseller" must be a very low bar. Which is heavily disappointing.

Only read if you want to hear about grown men lusting after the "most beautiful woman they've ever seen" being a 15 year old blonde, white teenager.

The ONLY reason I sat through this torture of a book was to accurately warn others not to waste their time. If I could give 0 stars I would.

The main character is 15

This is disgusting. The main character is a 15 year old slave. Just gross. Recording is poor quality.

manroot

way to much manroot, sounded vulgar. the story should have had an ending, not sure what future installments might look like. 🤔
