The craving is an undeniable urge that drives K’Dane citizens to find their life mates—if only to sate their uncontrollable physical longings.

Thrilled at being named a Chosen, Phoenix Dotir leaves K’Dane to become an artist-monk who will create dimensional art capable of changing worlds. Living by the monastery’s Principles of Purity will surely help him overcome the craving. But he never accounted for star chaser Zadra Solav.

Zadra doesn’t believe in rules and makes his own future. Fate separates him from the man he loves, but one touch renders him helpless to his own desires. Bonding with a monk is forbidden, and Zadra’s family sends him to deep space to avoid disgrace. Unable to give up, Zadra must find a way reunite with his Chosen.

Tormented by enforced separation, Initiate Riva Quinton struggles with his vow of chastity and risks all to rescue his lover. Together with his Eros, he stows away on board a star craft to follow his heart.

Four men defy destiny and tradition for love… but their love is a crime punishable by death.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14April's Showering Words

When tradition and real life clash sometimes we lose what is most important.
True soul mates are rare, but when ones life is promised to the good of a galaxy. Is it fair to deny them just for love?
Nix is chosen by the fates to help save his people from war with his talent.  Little does he know that there could be anything as strong as the pull to create.  The ability to continue on after all his heartache makes him stronger then even he thought he could be.
The thing that comes through to me in this story is the ability to sacrifice ones own wishes for the grater good.  When it becomes more difficult to go on this way the characters must fight the norm to survive and prosper.
I really enjoyed reading this story.  There were times that I was concerned that the main characters would live through the separation from there mates.  Yet through the talent of one all might get what their heart desires.
