Arin chose Galena as his queen, which is an honor she could have done without. Unfortunately, besides being an arrogant, overbearing jerk, he is also a fabulous lover, and no matter how often Galena leaves him, she always comes back. She has only one way out: Arin can't claim her officially until they find their third.
Lan of the Lions is one of the most dangerous and famous knights, and he prefers sleeping with men. He is rarely attracted to women, but when he visits Hearthstone he is drawn to both Arin and Galena.
Each of them is attractive on their own.
Together, they are irresistible.
But Lan isn't used to staying anywhere for long. Will he stay when danger threatens his lovers? Someone wants Arin dead. And with Galena and Lan captured, Arin must make an important decision.
A fairy tale of a king, queen, and a gallant knight—a magical sword called Axen and mages that will draw you into a time long gone. Real or not the tale of Their Majesties’ Knight brought a new twist in my reading enjoyment. When I started reading the plot, it made me think of King Author and the Knights of the Round Table only a lot hotter in the sex department.
Lan, also known as the White Lion, is looking for somewhere to hang his sword for a little while and finds himself at Hearthstone, a kingdom ruled by a strong but fair king. Now the plot changes from the fairy tale and things get wild and hot when Lan finds himself in the king' bed. When you add in Galena the soon to be queen--a high spirited wild cat who is demanding and set on conquering both King Arin and Lan--you have a force to be reckoned with.
I will say that I like contemporary stories most of the time but after reading the excerpt for this short story I was excited to take a step off the beaten path and give it a try. I found the first part of the story a little slow but by the middle of the book things really started to pick up and the action became enthralling and brought me to the edge of my seat; I was able to get to know the characters' personalities before getting entwined in too deeply in the plot and started biting my nails. There was enough entertainment that I could over look the few editing errors and still enjoy the story.
I really like the enchanted plot, sex scenes and spice that went along with it and would love to see the king's sister Moira get a book of her own. I will be adding Ms. Day to my list of authors just so I can keep track and see if Moira's story shows up in the future. Definitely a good read for a summer afternoon by the pool, but be warned, you may need a dip after all the heat in this fairy tale.
