Overview

Rakesh has worn a Collar in the Arena for ten years, and is acknowledged to be one of the best that has ever served. No one knows that the reason he had remained in service for so long is because of one man: Virin, the son of the celebrated Collared, Iras and her Ishkarin husband Gavir. Rakesh longs for a life with Virin, but if Rakesh leaves his Collar, Virin will never again be able to give him the pleasure and pain he craves. Virin comes to the Arena one night with a warning. Former Collared have been disappearing without a trace for months, and Virin's investigations have found nothing. He orders Rakesh to stay inside the Arena, where he will be safe. Then Rakesh vanishes from the Arena. In his search to save his lover, Virin uncovers a plot that spans the years, involves two countries, and that threatens to plunge their world back into war.

Author Information

Elizabeth Schechter was born in New York at some point in the past. She is officially old enough to know better, but refuses to grow up. She has been, at various points in her life, a jeweler, an artist, a counselor, a minister, a fitness instructor, a singer, counter-person in a coffee-shop, a lab tech, a research assistant, quarter-staff master, a daycare worker, a high school English teacher, a kindergarten teacher, a stay-at-home-mom, an editor and a writer. She firmly believes in the Heinlein adage that specialization is for insects, and is still working on the tinker, tailor, soldier and spy parts of the list. Elizabeth started writing in grade school, mostly for her own amusement. Her first novel was written while a student at the Bronx High School of Science, where she was regularly accosted before class by her friends, who were looking for the next chapter. She still has that manuscript somewhere, and readily admits that it is absolute and complete crap, but one must start somewhere. Writing got pushed to the sidelines for a good number of years, until Elizabeth got involved in a play-by-email role-playing game that was completely story driven. That game rekindled her love of writing, and she teamed up with another player to further explore the lives of their characters. That exploration turned into a planned series of novels, of which the first two are complete. Once Elizabeth started writing again, she found that she couldn't stop. A friend pointed out an open call for submissions for a Circlet anthology themed on the Tarot. She came up with an idea about a most interesting tarot reading that turned into The Hand You're Dealt, her first short story sale. Elizabeth lives in Central Florida with her husband and son, and a most accepting circle of friends who are both very amused and very proud of the pervy, fetish writer in their midst. Elizabeth can be found online at http: //easchechter.wordpress.com/, or on Facebook at https: //www.facebook.com/Elizabeth.A.Schechter.
