About the Author
Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing a few years ago. Her first book Fates, an adult fantasy, was published in 2010. Her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has caused her to discard her Bachelors Degrees in Management and Marketing in order to write full time. Her best selling release, Brothers By Bond was published in August 2012 and on three Kindle top 100 lists. Her twelfth novel, Not For Sale, will be released May 28, 2013 and remained on three Kindle top 100 lists for 28 days .
Brenda resides in Tampa, FL when not attending conventions and is the Chapter Coordinator for the Tampa Bay O.G.R.E.s as well as a volunteer with the Tampa Bay Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She is also an active member in organizing the Tampa Bay Leather n' Fetish Pride weekend and an associate member of the Tampa Leather Club.

(I'm excited to have won a signed copy of this as a Goodreads First Read – so thanks!)
This is a light, quick gay fantasy and romance that revolves mainly around the budding relationship between the warrior Zek and the mage Lord Sapphire, who also shares the Tower with his fellow mage Lady Sapphire.
I liked how the sexual tension and hot scenes built between the two men throughout, nicely intertwined with the storyline. And I appreciated the twist of the bisexual mix of both men with Lady Sapphire.
The three main characters were likeable and the story interesting, but I would have liked a little more substance and depth in their development, in the plot and conflicts other than the tension between the two men, and in the descriptions of the actions, events and surroundings. This may be because it’s the first, and short one at that, story of an intended series, but there was still not as much there as I would have liked.
Overall, it’s a light gay fantasy that includes some nice sex scenes.
