Born in poverty, discrimination and fear. . . .
the fires that forged Luther throughout his young life were none too kind. Now a man hardened and angered by the trials he’s faced, his many years serving active combat in the navy of his proud nation, and finally the loss of a lover and comrade-in-arms, Luther faces imprisonment and a possible death sentence for the crime of heresy.
The charge. . . loving another man.
Now the desperation of a noble family and the grave situation of one young woman may be his salvation. But to embrace it and pursue a future he has only ever dreamed of, Luther must learn to become a part of their world. . . a world of intrigue, dark secrets, courtesans, religious zealotry and assassination.
Luther is a man accustomed to fighting his way through life. But sometimes, with love and family on the line, a battle waged by the sword can have terrible repercussions. And the secret which threatened to destroy Luther his entire life could land all of those he loves in shackles beside him.
9 years before the events of ‘Red Lantern’, Luther Denholme’s story begins.
