After watching all his warriors find their mates, Ra wants nothing more than to find his own. How hard can it be? He’s an Egyptian god, for crying out loud. Women should fall at his feet—and into his bed. When he discovers his destiny, he’s flabbergasted that she doesn’t accept him at the word go. He must wrap his head, and arms, around this mortal woman. Fast.
Shanda doesn’t want a man right now. No way, no how. But when the sexy stranger shows up at her museum, her sex-starved body doesn’t care. It wants him…posthaste. She might have a chance in hell of resisting him, if he’d only stop kissing her.
With the pressure of having to tell Shanda what he truly is, Ra bumbles the job left and right. Very un-godlike. And when she does everything she can to stay out of his bed and his life, Ra must win her over the only way he knows how. With seduction.
What does a god do after he has won the battle to keep mortals safe and seen all of his warriors find their mates? Go in search of a mate of his own. Ra has done more than keep mortals safe and now that everyone else he cares about has found love he has discovered that he longs for it as well. While out on his search Ra meets Shanda and quickly finds out that she is his mate. After many years of searching he is not ready to lose her now but his first attempts to win her over quickly fall short.
I enjoyed Ra from the previous books in this series but he really endeared himself to me in this book. We get to see more of his personality and what makes him unique. I loved seeing him try to win over Shanda only to be knocked down a peg or two. His reaction to her dismissal had me laughing out loud and had Shanda winning me over right than and there. She is going through her own problems and when Ra enters the picture he just adds to them. Even though Shanda has problems she is still standing on her own and trying to fix them, showing what a strong person that she is. The sparks are there from the start between these two and seeing the bond form between them was a great read.
There may not be as much of the intensity that was in the warrior’s books because Ra does not have to deal with the demons and such but this book is full of emotion. The depth of Ra as a person was a wonderful read.
This story was a nice ending to the series. After seeing all the Chosen get their mates it was nice to see Ra get his happy ever after. Although we get to see a few important characters from the series in this book it would have been nice to see all of the warriors and their mates reaction to Ra finding his mate. I loved watching Takan and Falon help Ra with his mate. They truly want to see Ra find happiness. I am happy and sad to have finished this book as well as the series of Ra’s Chosen. I loved every single book and found Ra’s Hunger to be a wonderful and sweet ending to the series.
