Brides of the Kindred, Book Twenty-Two
Lady Arianna Blackthorn is a woman on a mission—she intends to rescue her brother, Jak, from the infamous BleakHall prison. BleakHall is a Triple Max Penitentiary where only the worst of the worst are sent—a males-only facility where not even female prison guards are allowed. So how can Ari infiltrate this fortress? With the use of a holo-projector that makes her look male (the important parts anyway) she’s determined to get in and she has a foolproof plan for getting both herself and Jak out…or so she thinks.
Commander Lathe is a Blood Kindred who lost his younger brother to the horrors of BleakHall. He is on a mission to go undercover and collect evidence against the cruel and ruthless prison guards who run it and the Yonnite Mistresses who own it. He also has a plan to get out but it’s going to take some time and while he’s waiting, a strange new inmate comes to BleakHall—a boy called Ari.
Ari is in over her head from the minute she steps through the prison gates. She is immediately singled out by Tapper, BleakHall’s most ruthless sexual predator, as his next conquest. Only Lathe’s timely intervention saves her from a fate worse than death…and death itself. Lathe moves Ari into his cell to keep her safe but he has no idea she is really a female and Ari doesn’t dare to tell him.
Can Ari keep her secret from the big Kindred? Can Lathe sort through his confusing feelings for the “boy” he has taken under his wing? (Why does he smell like a female? Why can’t Lathe stop thinking about him…stop wanting to touch him?) Can the two of them rescue Ari’s brother and escape from the maze of sadistic guards, psychopathic prisoners, and ravenous lashers—the huge carnivorous cats that roam the corridors of BleakHall at night waiting to devour any inmates attempting to get away?
