This book could have been great. The sex had so much potential but there was epic fail here.


There is A LOT of sex in this book, NONE OF WHICH uses any kind of lubrication at all. No oils, not even any spit (which is terrible, too, but is better than NOTHING)- even when Conall inserts a METAL sex toy into Luke's ass, there is NO LUBE.

If the author had set up so that men in this world have self-lubing anuses, okay, fine. I'd go with it. But there is NO MEN

This story continues from just after The King’s Ransom and I recommend you read The King’s Ransom first. Luke returns to Samari with his husband Conall where there are many who are unhappy about the marriage. They both worry over who wishes to kill Luke and they also have to deal with the Ilian Princess and her ambassadors.

Luke throws himself into his duty as King wearing himself down with exhaustion a
DNF. It's the first book I actually gave up reading. Since I couldn't finish it I won't even bother rating it.

What a delusion :(
I loved so much the first and I had high expectation for this book but it really didn't work for me. The plot has more holes than swiss cheese and is full of nonsense actions and illogical turns.
Meh >.<

Not quite the oomph of A King's Ransom, but nonetheless a good "what happened next" story. A pity about the sexual content disclaimer in the description though: it's pretty much a spoiler.

3.5 stars. good conclusion to a king's ransom. it was a nice change for me to actually like the intended queen. I hate it when the girls are the villains.
