The Barbarian: Dagwn's Tale (Tales of Aurelia, 3) by Kelex
Dagwn of Jenai is sent to Naroq with a message from Antos, the Barbarian, and a chest full of gold. He’s to buy the city’s loyalty, as it is always up for sale.
Dagwn also has another mission, a secret he has held for many years—to find the man who murdered his mother and sold him into slavery, there in that very city.
Before Dagwn can face the murderer down, he meets a man he cannot ignore, one who ignites his passion like none before. Their quick tryst at the feast in Dagwn’s honor connects them in more ways than one.
Torn between Antos’ charge, his vengeance, and one seductive male, Dagwn must make choices that affect many a man’s future—and threaten his own happiness.
