When Prince Duncan Caldwell discovers how exactly the heat works in a three-way pledge, he knows he’s in deep trouble. Not just because to the eyes of the Hall he’s still an unpledged man. Because when the urge inflames his body and mind, he has no choice except have sex with his two mates until the tide washes over. And knowing that only Lord Christopher Templeton and Lady Ylianor Templeton can assuage this burning need doesn’t help any, not since his attraction to them has been steadily increasing to a point of no return. A dangerous point where it’s consuming all of rationality and may very well be their downfall.


Such i’s the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is as it seems. Not the world, since its all-pervading sex drive hides a scary lack of violence. Not the people, since soul mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack.


This book picks up right where The Pledge, Book 5, leaves off and plunges lust and sex into gossip and orgies. It’s a unique connection, laced with jealousy and violence that are unknown to their world. This is not just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. Of three remarkable characters that must overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet if they want to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! To share power and love in equal measures. This is their real challenge, the lesson they must learn. Otherwise, how will their world survive?

“It was nothing, and the leader had no trouble setting me back on my feet—”

“Yeah, he had a busy day yesterday, not to mention his night’s adventures.” Darek grinned.

“Why?” She had overheard the servants’ whispers in the morning, only had thought they referred to her mishap. “What happened?”

“Your mate didn’t tell you?” Although he had pulled back, Darek did not let her go.

“I didn’t see him this morning.” After waking up in a sweat over Arthur’s true or presumed revelations—she still had to make up her mind about which was which—the last thing she had wanted was confront either of her lovers. “I left him sleeping.”

“But you know, right, David?” Evidently determined to make her suffer, Lord Doyle looked at the man with a knowing wink.

“I heard about it, yes.” From the scowl on David’s forehead, it was obvious he did not approve of it.

“Come on.” Annoyed, Ylianor glanced first at one, then at the other. “Do tell.”

“Well, it was about—”

“Lady Templeton, after last night, I might just be envious of your mate,” Ribes cut Lord Doyle off.

“Now I’m really confused.” Swinging her gaze from Ribes to Darek, then to David, Ylianor was at a loss.

“You don’t know?” Trailing after Lady Dranten, Kharen reached Ylianor’s side.

“I didn’t feel too well yesterday and—”

“That’s right.” Slapping a hand on her forehead, Kharen moved closer. “But now you’re better.” Her healing Virt kicked in, and Ylianor felt like she was being thoroughly checked. “I’m glad.” The last words were so soft and full of emotions that they went straight to Ylianor’s heart, especially since they were followed by a gentle caress on her cheek.

“Thanks, Kharen.” So Ylianor squeezed Lady Riyan’s hand. “But you can’t leave me wondering about what happened last night.”

“Well, it was something no one ever thought they’d hear—”

“Not from the leader anyway.” Darek pressed her on the opposite side. “But he said it, no question about it.”
