A dark and dangerous take on the classic tale with a gay twist. When Kayden Daniels journeys through the looking glass chaos ensues. Openly gay, rich and promiscuous, he sets his sights on the King of Wonderland. James, the King of Hearts, has an open marriage of sorts with Queen Verde. After James acts on his growing attraction to Kayden, he becomes very possessive, much to Verde’s dismay.

Love all things wonderland! Must get a copy of this one! I love the twist, and this one fascinates me!
It's the Mad Hatter... He's totally hot! ;)

Updated - - Nevermind, I must get everything David R. Metheny David R. Metheny has written!

His storyline with his "Road Back to Wonderland" series, has fascinated and sparked my imagination like no other has in a long time.

(This series would be the first of it's genre I've read... Guess you could say I'm a virgin with GLBT fiction. :D )
So great job David! :)

I’ve never taken the trip down the rabbit hole, until now. So there won’t be any comparisons between Kayden and Alice’s trip into Wonderland. I’m glad I waited because I’m sure Alice didn’t have the same journey Kayden did.

Seduction of a King is a dark lust filled tale of the quest for power and love. Wonderland is a place of balance between light and dark, good and evil. Or as The King of Hearts said “You’ll find Wonderland is made up of beautiful things and offers many pleasures, but remember

"Ok... I get it!"

My Audible Audiobook Review

So.. what a crazy and kooky story of Alex in Wonderland... This is m/m romance, but instead of a light and fluffy Alex meet Wonderland, it is kinda going down a dark path. Ok.. I totally get Paradox now. You know what...I think this should be read before Paradox...which is a prequeal to this story. Paradox makes so much more sense to me now... I really can't wait to see what happen to our Alex after the King dumped him...

Great Narration.. simply great!

The first, in what is clearly to be a series, sets up an interesting take on Wonderland. In the effort to maintain some mystery there's a lot left vague and confusing. Add in some need for a bit of editing in spots for clarity and word choice and this is not the easiest read.

Cute and fun, but I hope subsequent installments are more reader friendly.
