The Captive Born by LK Magill
“Downloaded this book a couple hours ago, did not stop for anything in the world!” - S. Rife, Goodreads reviewer In this America, the civil war never happened and slavery is legal. But it's not based on race, religion or creed. The government stepped in long ago and made certain that everything was “fair”, that every faction of society was represented equally. And that was several hundred years ago now, so this life is all modern day society has known. But that doesn't mean everyone agrees. Not by a long shot. The country is split right down the middle over the issue of captive lives, with tensions rising all the time. And the Riggs family in particular has spent decades leading the charge to abolish the practice. So when their heir apparent makes a move no one anticipated, it comes as quite a shock. Because Jason Riggs is now the head of that powerful family and the eye of the country is on him. He's rich and young and talented. He has everything he could ever want... and then he sees Val, a captive born. She's forbidden to him, but he just can't help himself, he has to have her. So he does the one thing his family would never approve of... he buys her.
Book Length: Long Novel - 320-650 PagesBooks in the contemporary fiction genre are composed of stories that may happen to real people in actual settings. The novels don't fall under other genres or categories. They often happen in precisely the same period that the reader is living (the present), with things that are now, or might be occurring, precisely the same period. The contemporary genre also contains conversational and casual dialogue and sometimes even regional dialects. Contemporary fiction novels will provide you a lot of choices to grow your life reading list. Writers, generally speaking, search for what's trending in their own time for their literary work since it lets them illuminate the weakness or strength of the society.
