Free after years of captivity, Elika finds this new world she now lives in difficult to understand. She doesn't know the rules, she only has herself to rely on, and the last thing she wants is to repeat the mistakes of the past.
When she volunteers for a mission, it brings her in close quarters with sexy, grumpy, bossy Rye Sanchez. The man she cannot stop dreaming about.
Rye doesn’t trust Elika. She’s a witch. She has a sharp tongue. And he’s pretty certain she’s hiding something. He shouldn't want her, and yet he can't stop thinking about touching her, tasting her, loving her….
What happens when a snarky witch and a bossy, Alpha male finally give in to their desire for each other…fireworks!

Author's note:
This book is linked to my Zerconian Warrior series, but you shouldn't have to read the other series to enjoy. There is no cliffhanger.

I really liked Elika she was strong, brave, selfless. Her character was good I was rooting for her to over come her issues and stand up for herself and take control of how she feels and what she wants. She did not disappoint,Rye on the other hand was kind of annoying ,for a grown man his reactions were childish,immature, and just kind of off putting. He was acting like he was the one held in captivity for 12 years with his judging her and not trusting her nonsense. I get his issues but his paled in comparison to hers, he came around but at times I was wishing she could have got with a zerconian that showed more understanding. But over all a good read, would I read this one over like the others probably not only because Rye but I'm glad I read it, but I would say read it some may over look his annoying habits and actually like him lol.

I hadn’t left a review on any of the other books...not because the books and author weren’t for me...I just had to read them all and decided I d do one review on the whole..
I thought that Darc and Zoey was ok just thought Zoey to be a bit daft for a empora to be but continued to read on as I liked the story idea so as The books developed I became hooked and I find all the characters challenging and like the different takes...well worth the wait and read...

Another 5 Star Book

Loved it was happy for both of them, was hoping that Rye would fail for, she was just the one for him, she would give as good as she gets from, strong and sassy. Laughed a lot when they were bossing each other trying to see who would win their way. Hope the next books are as great as this one.

I was really looking forward to this story but it just didn't work for me. He just resisted too much and battled wit himself over his feelings for her, although I understood it, it went on a bit too long.

I have read this series. I love it. I can't wait to read about the rest of the brothers stories. Will they find Lochlan? Where has he been? Thanks for the Zerconian Warriors, and the Joyadan Mates!!! 😂

Elika is a witch and was held by a cruel tyrant for twelve years. The Zerconians, with Lucys help, rescued her and other captives. Rye is fighting his obsession with Elika because she is a witch and he was betrayed by a witch.

This was a nice follow up series to the zerconian warrior series. I liked Willa's brother Rye. He was actually a good character for this new series. I liked it.

Not Bad....

Not a bad story. Need to read Zerconian series first if you want to understand who these characters are and find out the backstory.
