Amazon description -
Imagine a world where women rule and men must cater to their every whim… or else.
The story is set in the backdrop of the futuristic dystopian America run by an iron-fisted Queen. Under the guise of ending sexual assaults against women, she requires unmarried twenty-six-year old men to be castrated. To further diminish men’s rights, women are the only ones who can legally propose marriage.
When the Queen’s rebellious daughter, Shayla, falls for a commoner, the Queen refuses to condone the marriage. Shayla’s lover, Nathaniel, is left with unsavory options. Everything changes once he is kidnapped into The Underground, a secret renegade organization on a mission to overthrow the extremist regime. They train Nathaniel to infiltrate high society. Once released, he is commanded to commit a violent act that could restore equality for men; an act that would kill any chances for a life with Shayla. Will he save his gender from another generation of abuse or follow his heart?
This is a story of strength, determination, oppression and passionate love.
