An Uncommon Whore

An Uncommon Whore Series, #1

An Uncommon Whore by Belinda McBride was a very interesting book. Pasha is a slave who has no memory of his past. U’shma is his pimp who likes to gamble and uses Pasha to either distract his marks or sell his service to make money. While U’shma is negotiating with a john, Pasha sees a stranger across the room that peaks his interest.
 
Captain Griffin Hawke is taking a break from his decade long search for his lost king Helios Dayspring on the planet Warlan in a meat market of a bar called Trell57 where all the whores are male and planet law has them wearing veils and hoods. Griffin senses someone staring at him. He buys Pashas services for the night when he realizes the whore between his knees is his long lost king.
 
I hope Belinda does a sequel to this story. There were a few loose ends that I would like to see solved but all in all a good read.

Book Blurb for An Uncommon Whore

“As a general rule, you won’t find the love of your life while you’re on your knees under a table.”

-- Helios Dayspring

Pasha is a slave, whoring for travelers at the most dangerous bar on Warlan. He has no memory, no future of his own, yet deep inside Pasha knows that that he is meant for better things. The day that Pasha spots the dangerous pirate in the bar, he knows that he mustn't let the stranger slip away, regardless of what he must do to attract his attention.

Captain Griffin Hawke spent the greater part of a decade searching for his lost king, only to find Helios Dayspring crouched between his knees, swathed in the robes and shackles of a whore. Though he is appalled the downfall of his king, the hardened officer finds himself falling for the allure of the sensual creature who has taken his place. Returning Helios to his position on the throne is the only right thing to do, yet Griffin knows that in doing so, he risks losing his lover forever.

“A whore is a whore is a whore, unless he’s something else completely. I guess I must be an uncommon whore.”

-- Helios Dayspring
