Millennia ago, the people of Lencura were split into designations dependent on their abilities. Vitoria is a solviso. Others consider them the weakest of the designations but Vitoria knows she’s stronger than people think. Sure, she can’t fly, shift, or conjure magic but her blood has healing properties that the other designations covet and she knows she can use that to he ...more

Bound to the Monarchs has everything you could want. Triads, shifters, love and BDSM. It is a great story. This book was great, I thought triads were weird. This is actually the first book I have read that had triads, very good. Again the author used a disabled female. This is another reason why I love Brooke Winter's books. Not many authors will write a disabled hero/heroine in their books.

I received a free copy of the book and am voluntarily leaving a review

I wanted to like Bound to the Monarchs so much more but the execution just didn't quite get there for me. On a positive note I really liked the world building and found it all really interesting, though definitely check out the glossary because it's pretty complex. While the world was cool there were a few things that weren't overly explained or were only explained toward the end of the book so that was a little frustrating. The whole book is told thr

Author: Bound to the Monarchs is a queer polyamorous romance novel about a disabled woman who stumbles onto shifter lands and is rescued by the shifter queen and king.

I started this thinking I’d just read a couple of chapters and wound up inhaling it. I can’t entirely pinpoint why it worked so well for me because the world-building could have been fleshed out better and the bulk of the rather straight-forward plot could have been avoided had Antonio and Matilda simply had an honest conversation with Vitoria from the beginning. The latter tends to annoy me and yet I gulped this story down like it was water.

This is an FFM paranormal erotic romance and it sure

An unusual book - FFM Dominant/submissive romance

Brooke Winters has written what seemed to me to be a very creative book in a well-constructed, very different world. In this world, FFM triads are customary, two dominants and a submissive. The main characters are Matilda and Antonio, who are Ruling Monarchs and Vitoria who wanders into their region.
It’s a very complex social construct, and you should not skip over the glossary. Even the language (“monarchdom” instead of monarchy) and the spellin

This book had so many things that I'd been hungry for, it felt like a blessing. A paranormal romance set in a secondary world I wish I could have explored and learned about more. It's got shifters, magic, a diverse setting, and fate bringing soulmates together; not two, but three! Yes, this is a polyam book and includes some kinky scenes for those who like their books hot. But the very best thing about this book was the disabled lead. There was such depth and nuance to how she was written and it ...more

OMG! I loved this intriguing tale!
“Bound to the Monarchs” is an exciting, original and emotional tale. The world-building and scenes are vivid and realistic, the storyline is unique and intense. The complexity of this world and the customs are intriguing and add to this tale. The relationship of the main characters, Vitoria a lost outsider, Matilda, and Antonio, the Ruling Monarchs add additional intrigue, intensity, sensual tension, and super-hot chemistry keeps you turning the pages. I lived t

The book is well written, engaging, enriched by good world building and dynamic characters. Vitoria is special not just because of her special abilities but because of her heart and strength. Adrift in a world full of new discoveries she will embark on a journey that will open her eyes and heart. I look forward to what comes next.

Taking off a full star for the frequent referenced THE CACCOON AROUND HER HEART. I get it. It's the mating bond but darn if it's not annoying. Otherwise this is a good BDSM fantasy.

should have read the synopsis. not my cup of tea. i wouldn't have requested it for review. the world development was good except it's called a "monarchy" not "monarchdom". i won't be continuing this series. ...more

My only complaint is that Brooke Winters doesn't have more books for me to read! This book has an interesting fantasy setting, a solid shifter romance set up, a triad that includes sapphic romance, and chronic illness representation! While I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the representation I enjoyed the survival story aspect being told from the perspective of a person who also has to consider their physical limitations when navigating the world. ...more
