Pride-born Kylar is in need of release after a hard day of training exercises on the practice fields. He walks to the slave cabins to work off his sexual tension with other men. Slaves Varek and Gable seldom sought the company of others, content to keep their love private. However, when the high council approves a three-way mating, Varek and Gable see a possible chance to gain freedom as well as seduce Kylar; the slaves cannot resist attempting the venture.

Necessary Decision is a well written heartwarming love story. The plot illustrates prejudice and jealousy, as well as, emotional distress. The Orion Pride forbade sexual contact with women before marriage. Only full Pride members could compete for female mates, unmated were-panthers would visit the slave cabins. The characters are believable. The three-way lovemaking is sensual. Kylar has never experienced love of any kind until he spent time with Gable and Varek. He is class-conscious, with a warrior’s arrogance.

Varek and Gable are from defeated prides, enslaved to serve the Pride-born men. Varek and Gable were lovers long before they tempted Kylar. Varek has a formidable protective instinct when it comes to Gable, as well as Kylar. Gable looks for the goodness in every situation. What started out as a means to be free swiftly evolves into a beyond a doubt loving relationship. A.D. Christopher has created an impressive saga that I greatly enjoyed.
