On Sale April 1st, 2012

It's a different world. Space has been colonized, the wealthy fly to work rather than drive, and slavery is legal.

Jason's family has been ripped apart by tragedy. The only way he can save the ones left is to offer himself up as a bondmate. The more he's willing to give, the higher the price he can command. And Jason is willing to give a lot.

Devin is wealthy and heartbroken after the wife he adored walked out on him. He isn't looking for love. All he wants is a relationship he can control. Buying a bondmate seems like the perfect solution.

Yet when he purchases Jason's contract, Devin gets more than he bargained for.

I'm interested in romances where there is an inherent difference in power between the two people involved. I'm not talking about a dom/sub kind of relationship (though Redemption does have elements of that), but more about there being a kind of tension present that has nothing to do with whatever outside forces also challenge the lovers' chance at happiness. I began writing Redemption in the midst of our current global recession. I happened to see a news feature about people selling their worldly possessions on Ebay so they could make the next month's rent. I remember wondering, 'What happens when there's nothing left to sell?' That's Jason's dilemma when Redemption begins. He's an average guy. He has a job and his lifestyle isn't extravagant. But there's rent to pay, school loans hanging over his head, and a bank account without a whole lot of zeros on the end of the balance. So when his family is in danger and he needs credits quickly, he doesn't have a lot of resources. It doesn't take long before he realizes his most valuable possession is his life. Luckily for him, Devin Blair is the man who buys it. Devin was born into very different circumstances. He has the means to purchase whatever catches his eye--high end real estate; the best clothes; not one, but two private spacecrafts. He's never known fear or need, at least when it came to money. But he's lonely in the wake of his divorce and unsure if he can ever trust enough to love again. He's looking for companionship and a little something extra. When Jason and he meet, their lives take a new and unexpected turn. The question is whether they will survive to make the journey together. I hope you enjoy Redemption ~ Livvie
