Ciarah O’Rourke was born into torture.
A human spirit reincarnated in the body of an ancient fae goddess, she’s spent the last five years in iron shackles, her mind poisoned with magic for secrets she doesn’t know.

Waking up in a dirty alley with no memory of her escape, Ciarah finds herself in the hands of The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club--a ruthless and violent group of bi

New-to-me authors and a new-to-me sub-sub-subgenre. No one can say that I’m not trying new things for 2018! While I didn’t immediately fall in love with this story, mostly because it tested my personal boundaries, there was plenty to love about this book.

Ciarah O’Rourke wakes up in an alley with no memory of who she is, much less how she got there. Bits and flashes reveal torture and pain and little else. Through a strange sequence of events, she meets the very people she was meant to be with an

I don't even know how far I got but I am so sick to death of books with insta-love.

Look, I get that this is a reverse harem. I understand that multiple people are going to fall in love with the same person. That's the point. What is not the point is the idea that this one woman is irresistible to every male she comes across and they instantly start falling all over themselves for her. There's no "getting to know you" phase. There's no mutual respect.

It's about lust and instant love just add sex

Rating : 3.5 stars

It's no Kit Davenport.

- the guys are no Austin nor Cole
- it has less spunk
- it's super dark
- and full of violence
- the french is fucking weird
- reece speaking is hard to understand
- the wild hunt rides on motorcycles
- lots of sex
- a little swim in the bayou
- being fae is the new cool
- and ciarah is goals.

She's the queen, she's a goddess.
She makes the rules and she's the fucking dominant one. She doesn't take orders and she definitely doesn't let her lovers boss her around.

1,75 stars. Reverse harem story that would have needed A LOT more editing and working over.

There was an interesting premise and a few ideas I really like, all the more disappointing that it was written so badly. I read a book by Stunich before and can‘t remember it bing that bad.

As others stated in their reviews - the accents and French were really idiotic. It felt weird and not natural at all and overall disrupted the reading flow way too often.

The characters were alle rather unlikeable and

DNF for now. This is the first book by Tate and C.M. that I am just not feeling. Maybe I’m just not in the mood for a Fae book right now. Maybe I’ll give it another try later. Also this totally reminds me of Melissa Marr’s Fae books just an adult version.
The actual premise of the tale here was pretty good, however, the entire book was fractured by the injection of hot and steamy sex about every 10 pages and frankly this was enough to make the book boring enough that it joined my DNF shelf. Not enough glitter and too little substance.
I have a thing for the fae, about as much as I do for Demons and Dragons. I adored this book for a few reasons. I love the 'Wild Hunt' lore. The fact that Cirah is the queen and Goddess of the Wild hunt and her three soon to be four? Lords? she has claimed three this book.

Arlo - Her Lord of Spring, the Horn God. I love him, Arlo is so broken and all he wants is to be loved. He refused to be with the fae and wanted only to be with humans. Of course until the Viel Keeper. I want to hold Arlo and

I don't know what to think about this book. It was different, the concept was really interesting, but it was so very confusing. I feel like I have barely a clue of what actually happened. In fact, I'm not even going to try to explain what I do know and what I don't. I'm just gonna leave a few quotes I liked, because I really don't know what to say about this story.

"So, Veil Keeper, how are you faring?" she asked me, her voice tinted with a hint of a Cajun accent, but more like she'd absorbed it

This book was a fabulous read. Dark, gritty, unapologetic and absolutely unrelenting. I loved every damn second of it. Let’s see. Middle of the Bayou, Louisiana. Dark faeries, werewolves, rougarous, goddesses, seers, harpies, marshmallow-eater alligators, voodoo magic, and a supernatural 1%er motorcycle club and huge Cajun bikers with damn magic in their fingers. Welcome to The Wild Hunt!

Holy moley i already knew that this book would be a blast a god damn good book because the combo of Tate James & CM stunich can't be more perfect. Aaand when i give 5/5 this aint no joke i really really loved this one and i can't wait until the next one. As you can tell i really like dark books xD
Aand Woow Ciarah she is the sass in the sassines and the bad in the badass, i whoreship her personality and i think she can walk over even Aelin...
Hm i wonder if the werewolf is gonna join the harem...
The story revolves around Ciarah who wakes up to find her memories at a lost and powerful powers flowing under her skin. Soon enough she finds herself among members of The Wild Hunt—a motorcycle gang of faeries—and a revelation of her being a goddess follows closely. The premise seemed interesting which is why I picked it up and even though I’m well aware of this being the first part of a series, I felt it a bit incomplete and left me a little unsatisfied (no pun intended).

Fucking. Goddamn. Faerie. And it ain't as nice as any of that shit on TV or in books and movies. No, the fae were dark and they were fucked and they were as awful as the lowest bottom dwelling scum humanity could dredge up. Hell, they were worse sometimes. A lot of the time.

I feel like my review is going to be all over the place because that's how I feel when I try to get thoughts together. So I'm going to do a bullet journal type of review on this. Get ready for a lot of incoherent thoughts!

First of all, I really like these two authors. I enjoy them separately and I think I enjoyed them together, but there's a giant part of me that is incredibly unsure how I feel about that.

This book might have been 3.5 or 4 stars IF it had been set anywhere but Louisiana. I lived there too long and talk to too many people on a daily basis to be able to read something supposed to be set in that area that doesn't FEEL like Louisiana.

Louisiana is a crazy and amazing place. Besides one of the guys ha

Barf. The misogyny runs thick in this one and the ridiculous accents are SO CONTRIVED.

I was all, “omg, fae MC club? Genius!”

Then I was all, “omg, why is this so bad?”

Then I laughed a lot at the accents for a while. And was grossed out by how awful everybody was.

I feel positive I’ve read good books by both these authors so I’m gonna go ahead and reevaluate those to see if I was crazy to like them because #confused.

DNF 28%.

Definitely not my favorite RH read... Love the authors though.

Great world building and creativity but something just didn't click with me.

Ciarah O’Rourke came back to life in a dirty alley, bloody, bruised, and broken. She held no memories, only confusion, the feeling of torture, and fear. Due to the kindness of a waitress Ciarah soon finds herself with the Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club in the middle of the Louisiana bayou with a rough group of fae. Ciarah may not have her memories but it doesn't take long for the men to figure out who she is, Le Gardien du Voile, the Veil Keeper. They have waited for her return for over 100 years and ...more

DNF. I love both these authors but the accents French/ Cajun/ Irish mix plus the fey words were just too distracting for me. I spent more time pondering how to pronounce French/ Gaelic?? than enjoying the story.

The only reason why I am rating this book so low is because of the butchering of the French language that occurred in it. Plus, if one of your characters is a foreigner and you don't know how to speak that language, don't Google translate words you think might look sexy. I'm not even French I was cringing every time someone spoke it.
The story was entertaining on its own, I liked the romantic interests, the heroine, not so much. But the FRENCH! It really ruined it. I recommend a better research n

Tantalizingly unique

When I started the book I realized it really hard to understand one of the main characters . But once I drove father in to the book and really heard him speaking in my mind the book flowed smoothly.

I would totally recommend this book to some one who loves strong willed women and some wildly attractive biker men with just a touch of magic.

Cheryl Whitty,
I do love a good paranormal, and this is a great paranormal. This is an adult paranormal, so we have hot sexy hunks. Our heroine Ciarah is found in an alley badly beaten and with signs of torture. Also no memory of how she came to be where she is? Or who she is?
As this a first book in a series it takes time to learn all the players, and background. We meet The Wild Hunt Motorcycle MC who rescue Ciarah, and realise she is the new incarnation of The Veil Keeper. There plenty

This one's going to be a bit of a ramble as I'm still sorting out how I feel about this book.

First off, I did like the heroine and it would be so easy to just say that and be done with it, however, it's an honest review and as much as I like strong femal
This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books.

When Ciarah wakes up in a dirty alley she has no memory, found by The Wild Hunt motorcycle club she is taken in and given support and help. As her memories start to return they are full of horror and torture, and the people who did that to her haven’t gone away.

Ciarah is someone special, someone powerful, someone important and The Wild Hunt MC are going to protect her and help her through it. This especially applies to three key memebers of th
It was one hell of a ride. Why did it take me so long to pick this one up? It left me feeling bewildered, intrigued and desperate for more. I guess that's the reason I waited so long to pick it up - I knew I'll need the next one right away and I'm not good with waiting and guessing.
That take on a Wild Hunt was something I absolutely did not expect, but definitely appreciated. I love reading about the fae and every new twist is always rated highly by me. I wish we had been introduced to all the

"I’m the goddess and I’ll have my males as I please.”

"Thank the Veil one of these stupid fae men respected my power."

Ciarah was a little vindictive and rude (Because she suppose to be a strong heroine I guess?) but I did enjoy Arlo fighting his attraction for her.

Was promptly disappointed, it started off with such a good flow, I was like omg yes finally I found a good RH book, but then this girl starts throwing mofos against the wall like a got-damn dominatrix... they're supposed to be her lovers. The author was pushing the girl power way too far she's practically forcing her way into one of their pants "I will have any man I want"...really! the men are no better, any chance one of them gets its b* ...more

This book was great, gripping but not an easy read. There were lots of elements and characters that had questions hanging over them for much of the story. Plenty of action and sex to enjoy. Have zero idea where this story is heading but I look forward to finding out.
I found the story to be a bit confusing. The way some of the characters spoke (their accents) made it difficult for me to understand what they were saying.
