On a quest to find his brother, King Kritan of Katarian on the planet of Panucia finds himself ambushed, beaten, tortured and then sold to fight in the arena games. The people of Tamonius--his rival kingdom--condone slavery, take public sex to new lows and try to turn a profit off anything they can. Nothing can change his hatred for everything Tamonius... that is until he meets the most breathtakingly beautiful woman he's ever laid eyes upon. Surina of the House of Argyros, daughter to a powerful senator stirs the beast within him, making it want to lay claim to her as badly as the man does.
Free or not, Kritan is a master of seduction and has selected Surina as his newest prey. But this virginal beauty has secrets of her own--ones that change everything. And destiny just might have the last laugh.
Warning: Novel contains graphic violence, explicit sex, MF and MFM scenes, forced seduction, raw and gritty scenes of a society without order, sex scenes that may be offense to some, an alpha male shifter king who sees what he wants and goes for it, all else be damned, a head guard who has many secrets but shares a passion for the heroine and a virginal heroine who has longed to be taken rough and claimed fully by a man. This novel is not for everyone or the faint of heart.
A pinch of fantasy, a dash of paranormal and a lot of erotic romance.

An Interview with Reagan Hawk
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Reagan, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is A King’s Ransom and is the first in your Masters of Pleasure series. Where did you get the initial idea for this sizzling series?
RH: Thanks for having me! I have always had mad love for history and try very hard to base my sci-fi and futuristics off some grain of reality. So, I pulled from the Roman Empire, Ancient Egypt, Medieval times, the Vikings and mythology and decided I'd create a planet that was the origin for all we know.
HH: How does a King’s Ransom kick off the series?
RH: This book introduces the readers to the King of Katarius, Kritan. He's an alpha male shifter who has limited magik. You meet him while he's on a quest to find his brother who was last seen in a rival kingdom--Tamonius.
HH: What will readers like best about Surina?
RH: I love her innocene and naïve streak and love seeing how much that changes throughout the story. She becomes a lot stronger than even she thought she could be.
HH: What will readers love about Kritan?
RH:When he commits to something, he's all in, everything and everyone else be dammed.
HH: What can you tell us about the other books in the series?
RH: The next book, A Knight's Redemption follows Rawlin (he's Surina's head guard).
HH: What else can readers look forward to from you?
RH: More in the Masters of Pleasure world along with more in The Beast Masters and Strength in Numbers worlds as well.
HH: Will you be attending any special events this year live or online?
RH: At this point I don't have any signings or live events planned but that could change.
HH: What hobbies or interests do you have outside of your writing?
RH: I'm a total nerd and am proud of it. I love to read non-fiction and research just about anything I can get my hands on.
HH: What's your favorite quote ever?
RH: "The safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts"~ C.S. Lewis
HH:What's your favorite social media and how to use it to let readers know about your books?
