Summary from a distributor, Agent With Style:
The Karkarans invaded Atlantis in the middle of the night, pulling man and woman alike from their beds and forcing them through the Stargate to Karkara, a feudal planet where the slave trade is alive and well. Torn from his lovers' arms and sold at auction, Rodney knows he'll never see John or Carson again. Enduring backbreaking labor and being brutally used as a sexual toy, he's sold from master to master, praying that it all just end. Then he's put on the auction block one more time, and is bought by a rich Karkaran who looks very familiar. Can Rodney discover a way to heal when he's back with his lovers once more? Is there any way to find and rescue the other Lanteans who were sold off, and may have yet survived their cruel fates? Can life ever be the same again?
