In This Land: The Purple Book, Volume One
Bade, prince of a tiny, overlooked country, doesn't have a plan for his life. Never in his wildest dreams does he expect an invitation to court the Pharaoh of Orina Anoris, ruler of the most powerful country in the world. Suddenly whisked away, Bade finds himself in an exotic land that dazzles his senses and opens his eyes. The people are uninhibited, expressive, flirtatious, and don't know the meaning of sexual repression. Boyfriends, lovers, harems--it boggles Bade's mind to witness a freedom he never imagined. But the endless parade of beautiful men pales in comparison to the pharaoh. His beauty is literally perfection. Crackling with power, intimidating yet friendly, he is unconventional and traditionally Anorian. After being exposed to a vibrant, colorful new world, nights of sizzling passion, and the possibilities of true love, how can Bade face the thought of being rejected and returning home? Will he be able to win the pharaoh's heart and help his people?
