Inherent Gifts

Inherent Gifts logoA future slave world by Alicia Cameron.

The Fall made the world a better place. The collapse of the old society and the struggle for survival in its ruins gave humanity a fresh start. The deaths of so many clarified things, it required the survivors to focus on what was really important. And the rise of those preternaturally gifted in mind and body allowed humanity to rebuild the world without completely returning to the toxic old ways.

Jere is a young doctor, with a gift for psychic healing. Unable to find work in his native Sonova, he takes over an old friend’s small-town medical practice after the friend’s death in a mysterious fire. Hojer is as different a place from Sonova as Jere could imagine. In Arona, the nation-state of which Hojer is a part, the physically gifted are enslaved, owned by psychic masters who ruthlessly punish any disobedience. Wren is the slave who Jere inherited along with the medical practice. Burned in the fire and broken by a lifetime of cruelty, Wren wants only to serve and be ignored. Jere had never imagined that he would own a slave. He’d certainly never thought he’d fall in love with one. But in Hojer, where simple kindness to a slave is forbidden, loving Wren could be the end for both of them.

When a fiery tragedy brings Jere into Wren’s life it becomes clear that this new master is like nobody else Wren has ever known. How does a slave protect himself from someone unpredictable? Can love really exist between master and slave, or will it destroy them both? (M/M)

A wealthy doctor and Jere’s former professor, Matthias likes to play kinky games and Jere is always willing to go along. This time Matthias wants to play with knives and what starts out as twisted fun soon takes a turn that Jere isn’t prepared for which excites him… almost as much as it scares him. (M/M)

    Months have passed since Jere and Wren first came to peace with their new life together in the slave state of Hojer. Jere’s clinic has succeeded perhaps too well, leaving both men exhausted and stressed. When Jere goes looking for a new slave to help with the business, Wren objects vehemently. He doesn’t want to risk the exposure of their secret relationship, much less the forbidden gift he’s only just learning to control. || Worse yet, the new girl, Isis, is nothing but trouble. Battered, broken, and rebellious, she won’t even let Jere heal the most basic wounds left from years of abuse by her previous masters. When Isis lands them all in legal trouble, Jere can no longer afford to ignore the realities of being in a slave state. The three of them will have to work together to fight back. Can Jere confront his public role as a master and still be the submissive partner Wren loves so dearly?
