Prince of the Seelie Fae, Braelan stood back in the alley; this was not where he‘d intended to enter the human realm.   He had meant to emerge beside his half brother‘s place.  Lost and in need of cab fare, Braelan robs an ATM, using his magic.  Witnessing this event is ex-cop River, who tries to scam Braelan.  Reaching an agreement to share the money as well as a night of intimacy, Braelan and River form to an unbreakable bond of love. 

Unforgiven is the third book of the Fae trilogy.  The trilogy is the individual stories of three Fae men who were all sired by the King of Arcadia.  The previous books are Skin Deep and Heartsong.  In this episode, Braelan is riddled with guilt over his less than honorable treatment of his elder brothers, who both reside in New York with their human mates.  He seeks forgiveness, along with his desire to spend time getting to know his brothers Cobalt and Uriskel as equals.  Another dilemma Braelan is facing is the announcement of their father to step down as King, thrusting Braelan into the position of having to deal with the politically corrupt realm of Arcadia.   

The plot showcases the change of attitude Braelan has undergone in a year since his brothers last saw him.  The drama illustrated occurs when two fanatical humans are on a mission to destroy gay men and the Fae culture.  S.W. Vaughn's Unforgiven is an action packed spectacular incredibly engaging saga that highlights the destructive effects of bigotry.
