Sacrifice By MomsDarkSecret
eBook (PDF): $5.99
In the kingdom of Arah, many upperclass families adhere to a custom called “sacrifice”, where a younger sibling is offered as entertainment to suitors to entice them into making an offer... More > for the hand of an elder daughter. While it is far more common for the sacrifice to be female, male sacrifices are not unheard of. And although few will publicly admit it, it is recognized that some men will court a woman with a brother serving as her sacrifice simply for the novelty of enjoying a male lover at no cost. Haniel Pakari has two older sisters, but his parents have chosen to assign him the duties of sacrifice so that both his sisters can be courted. His sisters are only a year apart in age, so his parents assure him he should only have to serve his role for a year or so, after which he can resume a normal life. But Haniel knows that no sacrifice has ever been able to reenter society after having essentially become a whore and the knowledge fills him with bitterness.< Less

The Rangeland Avenger By Max Brand
eBook (PDF): $2.55
(1 Ratings)
A Western. He gave them the same chance his brother got ... none at all. 'At once the blind anger faded from the eyes of Riley. By the weight of that first blow he knew that he had encountered a... More > worthy foeman, and by the position of Cartwright he could tell that he had met a confident one. The big fellow was perfectly poised, with his weight well back on his right foot, his left foot feeling his way over the rough ground as he advanced, always collected for a heavy blow, or for a leap in any direction. He carried his guard high, with apparent contempt for an attack on his body, after the manner of a practiced boxer. As for Riley Sinclair, boxing was Greek to him. His battles had been those of bullets and sharp steel, or sudden, brutal fracas, where the rule was to strike with the first weapon that came to hand. This single encounter, hand to hand, was more or less of a novelty to him, but instead of abashing or cowing him, it merely brought to the surface all his coldness of mind, all of his cunning.’< Less
