    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of my all time favorites… I used to carry this around with me on a PDA before smart phones were even a thing.

    Summary

    Apparently it still amuses his uncle to buy sex slaves for him, no matter how steadfastly he refuses to use them. Derek ducks into his tent with a resigned sigh, prepared to dress and reassign whatever new beauty Peter has bought him. They do make for loyal servants, so he can't really complain about Peter's 'gifts'. But it is annoying to deal with, to have to spend his evening sorting out a slave instead of being able to go right to bed. It's just something he has to learn to accept as a byproduct of serving alongside his uncle.

    But when he lays eyes on the boy laying amid his furs, he finds his breath catching in his throat. His skin is golden with the candle-light glimmering against the sheen of oil that has been slathered on his bared body. His lips are parted, and they work over inaudible words or sounds. His skin is flushed, nipples peaked and pierced with simple but unexpected golden rings. He's spectacularly beautiful in the candlelight. The many glowing candles that have been added to his usual lighting cast glittering edges and shadows, imbuing an almost unearthly golden color to his skin.

    It's enough that Derek hesitates.

    Long and beautifully told. Excellent ambience enhancement for anything feudal, or low fantasy, or involving horses.

    Exquisitely painful. Told from Sheriff Stilinski's POV. Incredible use of background information to tell the story.

    Superbly written emotional roller coaster. Skin tight pacing, and some of the best dialogue EVER.
