Overview

Network news anchor Daniel Halstrom is at the top of his field, but being at the bottom of the social ladder--being a slave--makes that hard to enjoy. Especially when NewWorld Media, the company who's owned him since childhood, decides to lease him on evenings and weekends to boost their flagging profits.

Daniel's not stupid; he knows there's only one reason a man would pay so much for what little free time he has, and it's got nothing to do with his knowledge of current events. But he's never been made to serve like that before, and he fears he won't survive the experience with his sanity intact.

He finds himself in the home of Carl Whitman, a talk show host whose words fail him time and again when it comes to ordering Daniel to bed. Daniel knows what Carl wants, but it seems as if Carl isn't willing to take it, and Daniel's not willing to give it freely. His recalcitrance costs him dearly, but with patience and some hard-won understanding, love just might flourish where once there'd been only fear and pain. Can Carl become the anchor in Daniel's turbulent life, or will he end up the weight that sinks his slave for good?

    Fabulous Book!

    It isn't often I'm pulled into a book as quickly as I was this one, but this one did grab me immediately. Extremely well written, the author has created a modern day alternate universe that includes all the comforts and technology we enjoy today, but intertwined with a slave cast system from household servant to famous news anchor.

    Daniel, news anchor and slave, is leased out to Carl, competing anchor from another network. I enjoyed watching as the two learned to come to grips with their new situation and relationship, although I did wish Daniel would have more readily accepted the situation he found himself in. Carl, I absolutely loved. Ever the patient, understanding, benevolent master, who treated his slaves like people, not property.

    There is some extreme violence in this one, including a rape scene that I was very glad I was previously warned about. However, the author managed to bring me through it without jarring me out of the story, and even making it a necessary turning point in the book.

    By the end of the story, I did have a few unanswered questions, such as how did slavery come to exist in this modern day world the author created. However, the questions I am left with only serve to make me anxious to read the next book, learn more about world they live in and see how the relationship between Carl and Daniel progresses.
