Icon was entertaining in of itself, in fact the delivery could be said to be comic. However, I was highly distracted by the amount of adverbs, adjectives, and the sheer overwhelming amount of over-writing there was. If one were to take this as some sort of epic poem - not that impossible considering the extremely short paragraphs - then it might have gone over better. As it was, I found it entertaining, but in the end I found the effort of slogging through the descriptions to be slightly too much work.
Genre: BDSM Historical Paranormal
In an age of brutality, a Scottish clan imprisons Noci behind the bars of an animal cage. Only one man can save her now--
Taracut "the Gelded", the unfeeling overlord of Northumbria. The fierce warrior draws breath only to serve his king, and his impenetrable heart beats only for duty.
Although a vision warns Noci that Taracut is numb to all emotion, even lust, she offers the overlord the use--and abuse--of her naked and chained body in exchange for her freedom. The bargain: satisfy Taracut's dark urges, all his depraved desires, and she will live; fail to submit to him, and the self-righteous bastard will condemn her to a fiery death at the pyre.
A sweet kiss seals the bargain, and so the bitter battle for the overlord's soul begins. Tricking him with games of seduction, teasing him with a purring acquiescence to his every punishing demand, tempting him with wanton acts of perversion, Noci introduces the warrior to the full spectrum of feelings, from passion to...betrayal.
And when her treachery is discovered, the enraged Taracut exacts a terrible retribution for her deception. The fierce warrior will force Noci--his sweet pet, his enthusiastic whore, his secret obsession--to crave him as much as he craves her.
