Review - The Pet and His Duke by Beryll Brackhaus and Osiris BrackHaus

My rating:

Robert was born and raised to be a “pet”, a pleasure slave trained to satisfy his master’s every sexual demand. It’s an unsettled life with no permanence. Masters can grow bored and trade him in, or gift him to someone else to curry favor, or he can be stolen by another jealous owner. All that and more has happened to Robert in his time, and now he’s back in a trader’s “inventory” to be sold on again, yet he’s all too aware that at his age he is well past his amuse-by date.

Review - The Windmines of Bora Bora by Beryll Brackhaus and Osiris BrackHaus

My rating:

Ivan was supposed to be a powerful pyrokinetic psion. He has all the right genes but could never make them work. That becomes the least of his problems when his psychopathic half-sister kills their father and attempts to make Ivan her pet slave. Frustrated by Ivan’s repeated refusal to give her the love she thinks she deserves, the sister finally consigns her brother to the windmines of Bora Bora, a desolate place where the life expectancy for slaves is less than a few years.
