Guild-trained weaver Ily is furious her rival, Kal, a smug yet wickedly sexy rug merchant, outsells her at every turn. She knows her magically crafted rugs are far superior to anything he can produce, but can't compete with his charming personality.
When Kal fixes his lusty attentions on Ily, she is reluctantly aroused by his interest. She knows he desires her and, against her better judgment, she wants him too. A chance encounter leads her to make him a scandalous offer: her body in exchange for enough money to leave the city. She sees their time together as a temporary erotic adventure...until Kal reveals that what he truly wants from Ily is more personal - and more dangerous - than bed play. And she must choose between taking her chance at a new life or risking it all for a man she never meant to love.
So I found this in my library, apparently I bought it in 2013. I only listened to 2 out of the 4 hours. It jumped around and made very little sense to me. There seemed to be an entire world that was in need of a backstory and this just started in the middle somehow. I have checked for earlier books but couldn't find any. I was just confused.
