Overview

When one society fell, assaulted by natural disaster, in its place rose another, molded into something entirely different. Protectorates were divided by beliefs and distance. Slavery was accepted and threats both natural and supernatural were commonplace.

This became a world where sentries were needed. Trained almost from infanthood, these tough men and women lived in a society within a society. They were warriors and protectors, ferreting out evil and defending the citizens of New Colorado Protectorate from inhuman terrors and, on occasion, human ones.

Todd Ruger was born into life as a sentry. Raised by a hard father into a hard life, Todd becomes the consummate sentry, tough, dangerous, and good at what he does. When he wasn’t quite into his teen years, he was bonded to a special young slave named Nick. For years their only interaction was through letters. Friendship turned to a sort of courtship between them. Todd lived for the day Nick became of age and Todd’s ownership would take effect. That was the day Nick would leave the village with Todd. They’d begin a life together. They’d make a difference.

Raised as a slave, Nick never wanted to be special, but nature had other ideas for him. He grew up in a village with other slave children and was taught to be useful to his future master because he a gift ... or curse. The tutors responsible for his upbringing didn’t understand what Nick could do, what he was; they were afraid of him. If sentries hadn’t bought him, it was likely he’d never have lived to see the age of five. All that changes the day Nick leaves the village with Todd. He’s cared for and shown a new, better life with a man who loves him honestly and wholly.

But after being together barely a day, Nick is brutally attacked and injured. Though he recovers without incident, Todd’s heart fills with revenge. The guardian in him turns into a dangerous, driven assassin, a wolf on the hunt.

Todd’s obsession with tracking down the men who hurt Nick and making them pay could very well get them both killed. Can they survive and build the life together they’ve both dreamed of for years?

NOTE: This is the third edition of Marked Yours. The first and second editions were released by another publishing house. This story has been revised and re-edited with the end result being a better, stronger story.

About the Author

Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with others is really a dream come true. She has a genuine love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.

Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess, a spunky Welsh Corgi, and their tabby cat sidekick. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter, and summer sports (go Tribe and Cavs!). When she isn’t writing, she's working as a veterinary nurse, so don't be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.

Elizabeth received several amateur writing awards. Since being published, several of her novels have received honorable mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Her novel Jewel Cave was a runner-up in the 2015 Rainbow awards in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category, and Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.

"The Apocalypse didn't come from every religion's version of Heaven and Hell" but from super-volcanoes erupting changing life, laws, and beliefs. Society was altered into a class system. Babies were given into servitude to be trained as slaves, never to know what love was. Nick, a young boy with unique abilities, was one of those babies. As I started reading the journey of Nick's life I learned about Sentries and what they did, but one stood out among them. His name was Todd Ruger, Nick's master, a man that Nick only knew from afar and from letters received over the years. "When Todd went to collect his slave boy he knew he wanted more than a slave, he wanted a mate." It took very little time for me to become completely entranced and had to sit on my hands to keep from skipping a few chapters to learn the mystery of what Todd did as a sentry, and how Nicky fit into the puzzle. The suspense kept me on edge and eager to see where the plot was going. I wont' spoil the excitement of what they hunted but let's say it was definitely not human. There was no way I could keep from developing a soft spot for the two main characters; Nick with his wide eyed wonder and fear of the world outside the small village he grew up in, and Todd having to deal with some of the laws and customs that he does not believe in. It was nervewracking watching them struggle to survive in a world where they could both end up dead depending on which side of the caldera they were on. Ms. Noble definitely showed her talent and creative side in creating a time in the future where today's technology is no longer useful, and the laws of the land, and the people in it are nothing like we know. The story is loaded with some really hot sex scenes that showed not only the chemistry between Todd and Nick, but the love and trust that developed. Marked Yours is a fabulous tale, with plenty of sizzle and conflict that kept me reading until the end. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews
