Dark erotic magic ensnares a prince and his whipping boy in a world of castle intrigue. THE PRINCE’S BOY tells the story of Kenet, prince of Maldevar, and his whipping boy Jorin, as they fight to save their country—and their love—from evil.
The much-lauded tale of men, lust, and dark magic, now collected into one complete tale! Includes the full text of volumes one and two and two bonus stories.
- Honorable mention in the Rainbow Awards (for gay fantasy fiction)
- Honorable mention in the NLA Writing Awards (for BDSM-positive fiction)
In a fantasy world where the lust of male for male fuels Night Magic, Prince Kenet lives a sheltered life. Isolated from the war that threatens the kingdom, he and his whipping boy Jorin are of age, but still sneak forbidden pleasures in their bed at night. When a dark mage tries to bespell Kenet into sexual submission, the prince and his boy are thrust into the world of intrigue, sex, and war.
Drawing on complex themes of dominance and submission, the need for secrecy in a world where homosexuality is not accepted, and the intertwining of sex with magic, Tan weaves a complex, sex-filled adventure that is part “Three Musketeers” and part “Claiming of Sleeping Beauty.” Read the serialized chapters free online starting here: http://www.circlet.com/the-prnces-boy-chapter-1/
Cecilia Tan is “simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature,” according to Susie Bright. She is the author of many novels and short stories, editor of dozens of erotic short story anthologies, and the founder of Circlet Press. She was inducted into the Saints and Sinners Hall of Fame for GLBT writers in 2010.
The Prince’s Boy Collection includes Volumes One and Two of The Prince’s Boy, telling the complete story of Kenet and Jorin, as well as the bonus stories “Sergetten’s Tale” and the all-new, never before seen story “Jorin’s New Spell.”
Praise for THE PRINCE’S BOY:
“Brilliant from start to finish, but whew! What a marathon! You’d better train up for this one, or be prepared to read it in small bite sized pieces (if you can put it down, and yes, it is that good). It is not for the faint of heart. There is graphic torture, rape, slavery, every form of questionable behavior one could think of. And with all that? A story not to be missed. By turns gritty and lyrical. It is the chiming of tiny crystal hand bells and the inescapable, thundering peal of the bells of Notre Dame. A powerhouse, a tour de force. Not to be missed. But buckle up baby. It’s one hell of a ride.” —Elisa Rolle, The Rainbow Awards
“The story is a good one, the characters are well developed. I went looking for the next installment more for the story than the sex, though I will also say that there are areas that the sex carries the story.” —BDSM Book Reviews
Welcome to The Prince’s Boy by Cecilia Tan, a tale of a prince and his whipping boy ensnared in a plot of dark erotic magic. Warning: explores themes of dubious consent and situations of sexual jeopardy. NSFW.
A new chapter appears every Wednesday. This week is Chapter Seven: Jorin
I raised my sword again and charged. A moment later I was on my face in the grass, the rich scent of earth in my nose, just a vague impression of the touch of a heavy hand on my shoulder still in my skin. I pushed myself to my knees.
“Bear, I’ve had enough.” Continue reading The Prince’s Boy: Chapter 7

In this conclusion to the gay fantasy saga begun in The Prince’s Boy, Volume One, thwarted lovers Jorin and Kenet must reunite in order to defeat their common enemy, the scheming mage Seroi. Seroi has twisted Kenet’s father’s mind and is set on ruling the country for himself… as well as making Kenet into his magically bonded sex slave. But the bonds of love, not only between Kenet and Jorin, but between other characters as well, may be stronger than the magical chains Seroi would use to enslave them all.
The ebook edition includes “Sergetten’s Tale,” a bonus short story that did not appear online in the original serialization.
Excerpt! Volume Two begins here…
The ebook edition is also available at: Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Kobo, AllRomanceEbooks, and the iBookstore and Google Play store.
