Only pleasure could destroy his pain... When an alien race saves humanity in exchange for a few healthy human males, Hunter Wilkes is terrified to be selected. Those who are chosen are never seen again. Worse, no one knows their fate. Still, Hunter vows to face his destiny like a man, but he's shocked when he finds himself owned by a terrifying alien. Kian Lachlan might have a terminal disease that keeps him in constant pain, but that doesn't mean he believes the hype about Earthlings having curative powers. When his father buys him one anyway, Kian is furious and determined to prove Hunter is as fake as all the other cures he's been subjected to. What neither one of them was expecting was discovering a shocking sexual affinity. True roles of master and slave translate perfectly in the bedroom, but Kian's father didn't buy Hunter to pleasure his son. He wants a cure and won't settle for anything less. If Hunter fails, he'll be sold. Note: Each book in the Owned series is stand-alone and can be read in any order.
