OK, I admit it. I'm a sucker for an Alpha hunk with a spirited heroine and a HEA. It's not perfect, mind you, but it's a hot fudge sundae that leaves you feeling replete. Miranda was an empathic healer who was left to die on a battlefield with a spear through her thigh--placed there by her own people, no less. Her empathy caused injuries to call to her for healing regardless of whether the injured were friend or foe--hence the friendly fire. She was captured by raiders and enslaved. She was purchased at a slave auction by a gelatinous species. Her jello-like owner wasn't unkind; he simply wanted her as a business asset. Terrans were both rare and protected in space, so there was some prestige associated with her serving at business meetings. Osias is an Enjel. Yes, they are a race of good-looking winged creatures so I doubt the similar sounding names to those heavenly beings is accidental. He is a merchant who has worked his way into a lordship and he is guardian to one of Miranda's fellow slaves. Myrik, Miranda's fellow slave and Osias' ward, enters a period of growth and needs a bed companion to keep him warm. He and Miranda develop a friendship of sorts. When Osias comes to retreive Myrik, Myrik refuses to leave without Miranda. I don't want to release any spoilers, so those who really want to know nothing about pivotal plot elements should skip this paragraph. I include it because I would have preferred to know it prior to purchase. Of course I might not have purchased it then, so... Miranda is raped. Luckily the rape is not presented in graphic detail, but it is a pivotal plot element, as the too-enthusiastic repair necessary after the rape restores her virginity and so throws a monkey-wrench into the relationship between Miranda and Osias. Early on Osias is not a sympathetic character. He's a bit of a jerk but the plot elements (in my mind) satisfactorily explain why an otherwise strong woman would put up with his jerkiness. He later becomes much warmer and more caring. I wonder if he has a single brother?
