I was truly fortunate to have been gifted this book from Nia Farrell in a competition and lucky me.
I've read all Nia's books and they are wonderful. This is totally different from her Three Graces Books.
For all those lovers of Paranormal and shifter story's you will totally fall in love this this one. If you have never tried this genre is is a wonderful place to start. I loved it. I hope this is a prequel to a whole new series. Hint hint NIA!!!!!
This is a short story it is filled to the brim

I received an ARC of this novelette with piqued curiosity. I haven't read many shifter stories, but the premise excited me and I was intrigued. I am pleased to say that this book does not disappoint!
The reader is thrown straight into the action, following our protagonist as she makes her escape and then meets Thorne - one of her soon-to-be leading men! I don't want to give too much away as far as the plot goes, but needless to say things heat up with a sizzling display of sensuality.

Dreamy Erotic Romance

When Deidra escapes her ruthless captors, her only thought is to find safety.

When she encounters handsome, brutally masculine Thorne, a shifter centaur, she begs sanctuary. He brings her to the home he shares with his brother, Ragan, and Deidra throws herself on their mercy. To save her from a life as a slave to Mordred, the two man

Cool concept - centaurs!

Interesting characters, Deidre, a girl who is sought after by the king, and kept and trained to service him, Thorne who rescues her when she makes her escape, saving her moments before..., and Ragan, Thorne's older brother.

I loved how she was the one who instigated the sexual relations not the men. Fantastic!

This is my first centaur shifter book, and I must say Thorne and Ragan are magnificent specimens and quite drool worthy. I liked that the brothers felt a connection to Deidra, and that they really seemed to care for her comfort, safety, and pleasure. Quick sensual read. Loved it.

Lia review of Dark Moon Rising by Nia Farrell
*****

This is one heck of a hot little read. I have never read a book with a centaur shifter before and I just absolutely loved it. I couldn't think of a better one to introduce the idea.

Deidra has been held captive and put through training to be claimed by Mordred, who killed her whole family just to own her. It takes planning but she finally is able to flee when he's away from the castle. The run through the forest has

Loved this story it was just the kind of cute fictional story I love to read. The characters were very imaginable and the story flowed with a mixture that makes you want to keep reading till you finish it. That is what happened to me. I highly recommend this quick read.

Sexy novella

A quick sexy romp with 2 alpha males, and a goddess of light. Nia's books are a great quick read when you don't have alot of time and looking for a reverse harem.

Author Nia Farrell captures stories of myths, magic and romance with her writing, she leads us to feel as if it could be real with descriptions, characters, settings. The storyline is so precise leading you from one sequence to another. Thorne, Ragan and Deidra are in no way real but you want them to be.

I love reading and writing romance, contemporary and historical, with a special fondness for stories with BDSM and/or menage relationships. I enjoy crafting characters that will stay with you long after you've read about them. Their stories are layered, with topics like PTSD and autism, with elements of spirituality and mysticism, with psychic gifts and everyday challenges to be met and overcome.< ...more
