Marc made a foolish wager and almost paid with his life. On the run, he comes across a slave unwilling to see a man hurt, even if he is a free man.
Finn has never known any other life except that of a collared slave. Having never experienced kindness, he escapes a cruel master only to be collared once again.
Marc has always been free, for Finn freedom is nothing more than a dream. Both will learn there is more than one way to lose one’s freedom. If magic has its way, neither will ever know true freedom.
Thom Lane writes a heartbreaking story of a master and his slave. Usually a master/slave relationship is difficult to understand, but can be viewed from different points of view. I found it difficult to understand the relationship despite the era it was staged in. The master/slave relationship in Runaway Heart is one born out of the times and is no way a choice, which is often found in contemporary master/slave relationships. For all the harshness of the story, love grows between the two and the lines between master and slave become blurred. I enjoy the writing of Thom Lane and Runaway Heart is an interesting and thought provoking read.
