Four cards. Four kings. Four mates. Wonderland. A curse. High King Jarronn, the King of Hearts, must choose a card that will determine his new queen. Will their future union bring an end to the curse that's rendered all the women barren in the kingdom of Tarok?

Alice is having a bad day, culminating in the discovery of her fiancé in bed with a woman and another man. She is suddenly thrust into a very odd place, definitely not Earth. Why is she there and who is this dominating King Jarronn?

With the Bondage Kings, McCray has spun another fantastic series for her fans. A deck of cards has never been so much fun! I am eagerly looking forward to Darronn's story next month, when the KING OF SPADES finds his own queen. (dl $5.95)
