Summary

In the Queendom of Yclau lies an underground royal prison that embraces the worst of the past and the best of the future. The Eternal Dungeon is old-fashioned in its equipment and ahead of its time in its treatment of prisoners, seeking to put their best welfare above all else. Torture is part of the process of assisting the prisoners. 
The High Seeker, Layle Smith, embodies this contradictory institution: a man of deadly impulses, the head torturer binds himself strictly by the dungeon's code of conduct. His efforts to maintain this delicate balance are altered, though, by the introduction into his life of Elsdon Taylor, a vulnerable prisoner who is coming to terms with his own darkness. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards, this 2016 edition of the omnibus on love and adventure is 460,000 words long, containing the first four volumes in the Eternal Dungeon series, as well as the prequel novella "The Unanswered Question." 
The Eternal Dungeon is a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. The series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Young Toughs, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    They mockingly called me princess… 
    I was a stranger in a strange land, until I met him, my barbarian Prince. 
    He would fight for me. He would claim me. And I would savor every second of it, begging for more. 
    I never thought I would be easily conquerable, but that barbarian broke me. 
    He might fight like a brute, and make love like one, but he was more than that, so much more. He was the man I would give everything to… 
    Tall, brave, wickedly handsome, with wide, powerful shoulders, and the perfect, solid chest bronzed by the desert sun, he was irresistible. I should've known to stay far away from him if I ever wanted to go back home.

    From New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend. 
    --- 
    His goal is to stand firm 
    Len Thompson only wants one woman—his little sister's best friend. But no matter how much he craves Janey Watson, keeping a physical barrier between them is his only choice, and if he can't have her, he refuses to have anyone. When Janey announces she's leaving town, all bets are off. Len decides it's time to take—and give—everything he's been holding back while he still has the chance. 
    Her gift is rocking his world 
    Janey's been crushing on Len for years, but he's never seemed interested in her. Until now. She's not sure what triggered his change of heart, but, hell yeah, she'll accept it. All of it. Every kiss, every touch, every mind-blowing climax. Working to meet the deadline for her move is not nearly as interesting as enjoying steamy escapades with the sexy mechanic she's always desired. 
    Only it's a relationship built on sand, and Len must finally choose—face his past or let their future crumble.
