Lovers & Beloveds
An Intimate History of the Greater KingdomBook - 2010
When eighteen-year-old Prince Temmin comes of age and joins his father's court, he's unprepared for its politics, assassins and sexual intrigues -- and even more so, the King's immortal advisor Teacher, the holder of the royal family's hidden magic. Teacher becomes Temmin's tutor, his lessons contained in a magic book. Through it, Temmin experiences everything each story's characters do, and he's forced to confront serious mistakes in the kingdom's -- and his own -- past. His present is no easier. He's falling for beautiful twins -- brother and sister -- who are the human hosts of the gods of love and desire called the Lovers. Being with them is more than sex -- it's a religious calling. But an ancient prophecy says if Temmin heeds Their call it may spell the end of the monarchy, and the King fights him every step of the way.
