BOOK OF THE DAY: The Priest (The Ginecean Chronicles) by Monica La Porta

 The Priest (The Ginecean Chronicles)
by Monica La Porta
(Click here for UK purchase)

Mauricio is a slave. Like any man born on Ginecea, he is but a number for the pure breed women who rule over him with cruel hands. Imprisoned inside the Temple since birth, Mauricio has never been outside, never felt the warmth of the sun on his skin. He lives a life devoid of hopes and desires. Then one day, he hears Rosie sing. He risks everything for one look at her and his life is changed, forever. An impossible friendship blossoms into affection deemed sinful and perverted in a society where the only rightful union is between women. Love is born where only hate has roots and leads Mauricio to uncover a truth that could destroy Ginecea.

Monica La Porta is an Italian who landed in Washington State several years ago and found the perfect weather for writing.
