Prince Law of Bergogia has so many expectations and restrictions placed upon him. Fixing things on the palace lawn and telling dumb jokes are only a couple of things he isn’t allowed to do. Marrying a woman for political gain and producing an heir is what everyone wants him to do. Well that, and keeping a sex slave on the side. Law never planned on buying a sex slave until he laid eyes on a silvery short haired beauty.

Larissa was captured and sent to an auction block to be sold as a sex slave. She fought every chance she could, but fighting was getting her nowhere. Even though the man that bought her was gorgeous and seemed to truly want to help her, Larissa had no intention of being controlled by him. Perhaps the only way to gain her freedom would be by giving Law exactly what he wanted…. mind-blowing sex.

The relationship between Master and Slave gets complicated when Law’s desire for Larissa increases and Larissa becomes confused about her feelings for Law. There is no way the kingdom will accept Larissa as his queen or mother to his illegitimate children. The shame would cause his family to lose their status. Larissa couldn’t live with the guilt she carried over all the changes she had caused in Law’s life. Love was welcomed and hated at the same time.

Law’s Deliverance is a touching love story of two people being freed from a life that they were both forced into. Law just wanted to be an average man, in love with a woman who was perfect for him. He never enjoyed having to follow the path of a prince and I felt his pain of keeping up the pretense. When Larissa entered his life, I prayed that his family and other outsiders wouldn’t be successful in getting rid of her. Poor Larissa was almost her own worst enemy. She made me angry by fighting so hard against Law, the one person who wanted only to help and love her. He didn’t look down on Larissa and he was willing to give up everything just to be with her. What sane woman would not want such a man? Then when I saw her trying to be selfless by putting Law first, I began warming up to her. Many times I was sure it was the end for Larissa and then Melany Logen surprised me with a new twist to the story. Every character makes sense and the ending is hot and hopeful.
