About this title
Welcome, dear reader, to the world of Hetar, a realm of Forest Lords, of Shadow Princes and Coastal Kings. A land of passions, both civilized and savage. Where the social classes know their place, but where anyone can, under the right conditions, advance to the highest pinnacle. This is a place where pleasure is never censured, but encouraged, and where deception and desire may be intertwined. The orderly, elegant veneer of refined Hetar can no longer ignore the rebellion brewing in the Outlands, a dangerous place of both magic and mystery.
From the city that is the very center of Hetar, Lara, the beautiful half-faerie daughter of John Swiftsword, ventures forth on a journey that will awaken her, both body and soul, as she learns the true meaning of love that will last an eternity -- and a searing passion that will change the destiny of Hetar forever.
Creating Hetar and its many characters has been a great challenge for me, but a wonderful and creative endeavor. I hope you will enjoy Lara's tale.From Booklist:
For Lara, the half-faerie daughter of John Swiftsword, her beauty is a blessing and curse. To raise money for her father, she agrees to be sold to a Pleasure House, but it turns out that no one, either because they fear her faerie heritage or her unnatural beauty, is willing to bid on her. Instead, Lara is put on a trading caravan heading to the coastal kingdoms of Hetar. First sold to the Forest Lords, who sexually abuse her, Lara escapes to the Desert Kingdom, where a Shadow Prince introduces her to the arts of seduction and desire. When Lara finally reaches the Outlands and meets one of its leaders, Lord Vartan, she discovers her true destiny. Best--selling Small begins a new fantasy romance that does have a few of her signature elements--including a heroine whose sexual experiences involve other men beside the hero--but some readers may miss the vibrant, richly detailed settings and wonderful period flavor of Small's beloved historicals.
