Book Five, The Reunion, brings back two of the most popular characters
in the The Marketplace series. Robin, recently released from her contract, meets her old trainer Chris Parker on a trip to Ireland where they will join dozens of other slaves for a week at a Marketplace-sponsored Reunion.
Of course the vacation resort isn’t just any resort, it’s Kaleigh Castle, a centuries-old Irish castle that is now a luxury 4-star hotel and happens to be where Chris learned many of the skills and practices that have made him so sought-after in the Marketplace. And while everyone enjoys their two most favorite indoor sports–gossip and sex–trouble is afoot. A nosey reporter thinks he’s onto something: a real-life international slave trading ring.
For Robin, now a veteran slave, the week at Kaleigh Castle will give her time to consider whether she is ready to return to the auction block. During the Reunion, she will meet slaves from all walks of life, as well as their spouses, significant others, and even children. Some of her new friends are also struggling with their own futures, whether they are still in the Marketplace, retired, or returning to service.
Chris, never completely on holiday, hopes to meet with a handsome young Earl and his millionaire American bride, whose talents for slave-training have gained them special attention. . . including the attention of one tabloid reporter, who is hoping for the biggest story of his career. Can Chris keep the world from learning the truth about The Marketplace, but accept the truth about his feelings regarding Robin, Anderson, and Jiro at the same time?
