Emerald – a girl with green eyes and a rarity after the horrific genocide that slaughtered millions. 

After the war, King Gideon rose in power. A lust-filled and greedy king that believed in the power of slavery.

At eighteen, women were required to come before King Gideon and his four sons, to offer themselves as a courtesan. The princes took only those they found most attractive and alluring. The rest were returned to their homes with a brand on their wrist proving they had been through the process and rejected. Ignoring the ritual was punishable by death.

Aria Stone had been kept hidden from the princes and the ceremony, because she was an Emerald. At twenty-three, the royal guards storm her home, murder her mother, and drag her to court. She must face the four princes. 

A dystopian erotic adventure.

"Your guards murdered my mother, dragged and drugged me from my home. Anything else you wish to know?" Aria asked, short-tempered.

James stepped close enough to feel his breath against her cheek. "I can see your reluctance to be here, but I assure you no harm will come to you, Aria."

It was hard to believe him given the circumstances. Aria crossed her arms defensively. She didn't say a word. There was nothing to say that would please him and make her happy. She wouldn't lie or pretend to care about him when anger ebbed away at her and boiled in her blood. Not when he made Aria think of her mother and asked her about what happened, as if he pretended to care. Unlike the other women here looking for something, she just wanted her freedom returned. Pretending eluded her.

Aria is taken from her family to the King's Castle where his 4 sons will have the privilege to take her into their harem or send her packing for death!  Prince James takes her into his fold and tries to protect her and teach her.  He even takes her to the market, where she runs away.  But not to fear James finds her and brings her home and teaches her a lesson.  He ignores her and see's his other girls.  

Then she is forced away, to be sold like chattel.  The rebels find her and break her out, but not before James rushes in to save her again.  This time, James is taken from his comfy life and folded into the rebels.  He wants to be with Aria, he loves her and will help over throw his father if necessary to prove it.

But can they survive?  Can James be trusted?  

I wouldn't say this was erotic.  It had some sex, but wasn't over the top.  The sex was well written, but not over powering to the book.  

Violence, yep, the book opens up with the death of Aria's family.  There is violence thru the book.  But it's dystopia, so it needs it!!
