First published at MM Good Book Reviews


Melmoth Brien wants just one thing and that’s his family’s hidden treasures so he can pay his debts off before he is dragged to the debtor’s prison. His plans go awry though when he comes across a young woodsman about to set fire to his old family home. Scarlet has to drive out the intruders before they damage the forest but he never expected Melmoth to appear and ruin his plans. Now he needs to get rid of Melmoth as he is a faederswica (a traitor) before the bad spirits take over.

This has some fantastic world building and really draws you in to their world. The characters are well written and interesting and the basis for the Greenwood Lore and its protectors is a good concept. Melmoth is a strong hardy man who has a wanderer’s heart. He can’t settle anywhere and I think the explanation for this was good. Scarlet is a strong but submissive man, he will stand up for what he believes in and won’t take any crap from Melmoth. He also knows that even though he longs for Melmoth, Melmoth will leave and Scarlet has to stay. The conflict between them is good, they don’t have it easy and they both try to fight the attraction and that attraction is scorching.

The sex is hot between the MCs and you can see how their feelings change throughout the book. There is a slight BDSM theme and the scenes are light BDSM which is worked in quite well. There are also some scenes that are slightly disturbing that include Scarlet with the Green Man and then the Wild Things.

So I recommend this if you like fantasy/paranormal, light BDSM, hot sex, a sexy lithe man and a hunky ex-captain.
