A future queen and the two males who desire her...
Luckily, Princess Jayla of Anasta doesn't have to choose. Damon Le Clerc is a political rebel who is exasperating, yet devastatingly attractive. Marc Kartel is a handsome ambassador with a diplomatic agenda that includes marriage.
Having two virile lovers who are so different is interesting, but as disaster for her planet looms, she finds that that is only to her advantage. Perhaps between the three of them they can save Anasta from a danger that is more elusive and deadly than it seems.
When she is taken hostage and the entire situation becomes explosive in a literal sense, both the passionate genius with a volatile personality and the cool negotiator are willing to risk their lives to save her...
Lucky Jayla. Re-engineered humans provided abundant numbers of highly sexed males, and a society that encourages women to have multiple partners. This explanation at the beginning of the book eased me into this futuristic society, and allowed me to enjoy the story without having read any of the other books in this series. It also provided ample opportunity for some hot sex between Jayla and her consorts, Damon and Marc.
If their couplings aren’t enough for you, we also are invited into the bedrooms of other secondary characters and enjoy their steamy interludes, too! Political intrigue assassination attempts, kidnapping, and lots of twists and turns keep you interested between the bedroom scenes.
The coupling is tender and explicit. With the exception of the marriage coupling, any sex involving Jayla, Marc or Damon involves all three although there always seems to be one of the males watching while the other male is engaging in intercourse.
The author seems fond of descriptive words which can be good and bad. While it helps to really set a scene, it can also be intrusive, as when the author consistently describes ladies underwear as “filmy undergarments” while disrobing for sex.
I enjoyed the political intrigue that drove the plot between sex scenes. I also very much enjoyed the fact that our heroine was not just a sexual plaything, but a strong, capable woman.
This book is an excellent break from reality, and is an easy to believe sci-fi reality. Do yourself a favor, and get this book today.
