Captive Prince: Volume One (Captive Prince, #1) - S.U. Pacat,  C.S. Pacat I waffled back and forth on this for days. Parts were excellent, and it was well written. I liked how the plot kept surprising me as well as the fact that even now, a couple of weeks after reading it, I am still fascinated by the character of Laurent. However, the rape, the flogging, the whole slave element is just very disturbing for me on many levels.
