Traitors. Thieves. Liars. Lovers.
We had been all of these.

I have stolen hearts that weren’t mine to take. Betrayed my country for the sake of another night in my lovers’ bed. Lied to the people I said I loved.

All for the tarnished crown of an empire than can no longer exist.

The first time I saw Blair I forgot what I was meant to be.
The last time I saw Ben, I remembered.

I knew the final part of this trilogy would be lovely, romantic, filled with hot sexy times, a little intrigue, and a couple of pretty big surprises.
Everything we thought we knew about Ben, Issac, Goldsmith Sr, Goldsmith Jr, and even Elise isn’t quite what we thought. And when information about Blair’s security and schedule are being leaked to the bad guys, everyone close to Blair is put under scrutiny. No one anticipates who the insider is. And they’re even more surprised at who the traitors a

First off, I really like the covers in this trilogy. Anyways, my favorite thing about these books were the connections between Blair, Ben, and Isaac. They all came from such different places and the two boys had a lot to hide, but they were all vulnerable. The connections are undeniable, the love scenes are hot, and the drama and action draw you in.

I like how it ended, I was totally shocked as to some of the big reveals in this story. I'd totally read more like this from this author, who was new

The Tarnished Crown Trilogy ended magnificently with Emeralds . Told mostly in Isaac’s POV, the story picked up right where we left off from the last installment. I liked that the pace of the story picked up and the story progressed readily as the loose ends were tied up. The curve balls kept me guessing who was trustworthy. Through all the twists and unexpected, traitors were revealed and questions were answered. The bond between Blair, Isaac and Ben strengthened as they maneuvered through t ...more

Book three in the Tarnished Crowns Trilogy was an amazing conclusion to a great story. Annie keeps you guessing on who the good and who the bad are throughout most of the book, There’s more great love scenes between the three and there’s so much depth to the all the characters in the book, you often feel you are in the room with them during conversations. Just about every question is answered and you don’t feel like you were cheated with anything. All of the storylines and characters you were gi ...more

I loved this book! This is the last book in the Tarnished Crown trilogy. We finally get to hear from Isaac's POV!! There were so many unexpected twists and turns. I was not expecting that ending! I loved learning more about Isaac. I also liked how he and Blair got closer in this book. Before I almost felt like he was left out, but now he feels like an integral part of the love story. Fantastic ending to the trilogy! ...more

Great conclusion to this explosive trilogy by Annie Dyer! It's rare that I love the last book of a trilogy as much as I did the first. However, in this case, the story got better with each consecutive book. Emeralds is told mostly from Isaac's POV and I loved finally getting into his head. This story was beautifully messy in the best possible way. The heat and love between our threesome is something to behold! There are so many twists, turns and OMG moments that will keep you at the edge of your ...more

What a great way to end the series. Emeralds was everything I wanted and needed. What an interesting historical modification. What an beautiful love story about an unconventional relationship. We got to know Blair, Ben and Isaac more and more with each book. I loved that we got each of their POV's. I'm sad that the series is finished. So well done! ...more

For the love of all things sexy…. This book blew me away. What a fantastic end to a phenomenal trilogy. I can’t say enough how much I love this series. It invokes so much emotion and you really become invested in the characters and the plot. I really think that it is better than Game of Thrones. As the thrilogy concludes, it continues to become more suspenseful; the emotions are stronger, deeper and more complex; and the sex gets hotter. The events twist and turn leaving you breathless and sad t ...more

The conclusion to the Tarnished Crowns trilogy has arrived in the form of Emeralds. I was anticipating this story and it was just as magnificent as I was expecting. This story was told from Isaac’s point of view, filled with intrigue and angst, and has Blair, Ben and Isaac all questioning who they could trust among those that should be the closest to them. You definitely need to read the first two books in the trilogy to make sense of all of the players; but I promise, your invested time will be ...more

Emeralds is the final installment in the Tarnished Crown Trilogy and is told from Isaac's POV. So many things happen in this book! I'm not even sure how to write this without revealing any spoilers. I will say that traitors are revealed, questions are answered and our main characters get their story wrapped up in a perfect way. Annie knows how to write so that I feel all of their emotions, I felt Blair's hurt and the guilt and worry from Ben and Isaac. I felt their happiness at finding each othe ...more

Well, alrighty then.

This author just gave me the conclusion I was expecting and then some. This whole trilogy has been a cat and mouse game in which I had no idea who was good and who was bad. The blurbs of these stories didn't help either because they just added to the suspense and drama as this saga was unfolding.

Fantastic characters, mystery, strong connections, backstory, different points of view that all added a certain element to the story and steam galore all made this entire series one t

Prepare yourself for the unexpected. Ok so to begin with this is mostly told from Isaac’s POV. There are layers upon layers in this story. Twists, turns, and what the heck is going on moments. If you were expecting a tidy little wrap up this is not this book. This is the ultimate, expect the unexpected. While I was reading all these quotes from MacBeth were running through my mind, because they were so relatable. One quote that hit me hard from MacBeth ,”When shall we three meet again in thunder ...more

This book is hard to sum up and I still don’t really know how to review it. It’s not what I expected at all but that is no bad thing.

Blair and Isaac spend a lot more time with each other in this book and I like that because it allows their bond to solidify and get even stronger. They needed that time with each other even though the reason they had that time with each other was for a reason neither of them liked

Ben. Oh my Ben. I fell more in love with him. He’s made sacrifices that none of us c

Secrets finally come to light. Traitors are exposed. People will be hurt and you will be surprised by some of the revelations. Blair, Ben and Isaac couldn’t have ended more perfectly in my mind. Once the secrets are revealed, traitors are exposed and they are finally able to settle down will their feelings still be there? Can Blair, Ben and Isaac be everything to each other once the stress is relieved? Emeralds is the final book in the Tarnished Crown Trilogy and I can’t believe it’s over. This ...more

This book is the final one in the trilogy. It is intense, full of action and even angst to some extent. At some point I stopped reading and took a break by listening to another book because I was on edge. I loved these characters, Ben, Blair and Isaac are so wonderful together that it made me feel Blair’s pain at some point. I definitely loved this book and even wish it wasn’t just a trilogy, but a longer series, as I want to know more about this throuple.

The final book in the Tarnished Crowns series is amazing!!

Told mostly from Isaac's point of view, the pieces of the puzzle finally come together and all of the questions are answered. Blair, Ben and Issac must decide who to trust and where their loyalties lie. There is plenty of excitement, a lot of steam and a wonderfully satisfying ending.

This series kept my heart racing (and sometimes breaking!). Loved it!!

Wow! I am at a loss of words after finishing this trilogy. It has taken me a little bit to come up with a review that does it justice but all I can say is it is fantastic and everyone needs to read it.

I LOVED this trilogy!! The final book gives you everything you want as a reader!! All of your questions are answered and they aren't at all what you are expecting. Ben, Blair, and Isaac get the HEA they deserve!

I love everything Annie writes and will continue to devour her words!!

Emeralds is the final book in the Tarnished Crowns trilogy and as with any series, the books must be read in order. The first book is titled Chandelier and the second Grenade.

Emeralds is written giving us Isaac’s POV, although other characters do add their voices at appropriate times. I was hoping that Emeralds would answer the questions that the first two books left me pondering with, and it certainly did.

The first part of this book continues adding to the story very much like Grenade did and

Issac -"He watches me go. I leave part of my heart there"

This is the last book in the Tarnished Crowns Trilogy.

Wow! I have no words! This book and Trilogy will leave you speechless! It ties up everything! The steamy level is of the charts!!!

This time Emeralds is told from Isaac's point of view, The Kingmaker. You find out everything you ever wanted to know about him.

This book is unputdownable! You want to finish it to find out what happens but you also want to savour ever last page so it never

Annie Dyer
The final instalment in the Tarnished Crowns Trilogy, I don’t think I’m ready for it to end.
“Nothing prepares you for the moment your heart shatters.”
Told mostly from Isaac’s point of view, the intrigue continues. The secrets, the lies and the twist are deep.
“... but in their eyes I was just a soldier, common cannon fodder.
Not a sniper. Not a spy. Someone who was just paid muscle.”
This story is raw and explicit, the characters are the sirens in

Emeralds by Annie Dyer is book three in her Tarnished Crowns Trilogy. Emeralds is not a stand alone. The previous books are Chandelier and Grenade.
Emeralds is the fitting conclusion to Blair, Ben and Isaac's unique story.
A fast paced read, high on drama with unexpected twists and turns that kept me in suspense from start til the last page.

The end has come. After all the twists and turns, backstabbing and lies, we finally have our answers, and our happily ever after.

"Her words hang in the air. Wishes with wings."

Isaac, Ben and Blaire finally figure out how to navigate the political world, while saving their butts, solving some mysteries, ending a couple 2 or 3 lives and having lots and lots of steamy breaks.

"It doesnt matter as I'm wrapped in the two people I need most."

The conclusion we all needed.

"We carry its weight together

OMG such a great finish to the trilogy! So many twists that I didn’t see coming! Steamy level jumped up a notch or two as well! So Good! Im sad that it ended.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in the Tarnished Crowns trilogy and it’s a humdinger! Full of political intrigue and mysterious players with questionable motives. You will fall in love with Isaac, Ben and Blair as they maneuver through the daily land mines of this alternate royal world!

Emeralds by Annie Dyer is book 3 in the Tarnished Crowns Trilogy. It's the final book and what a way to end the trilogy.

Absolutely fantastic conclusion to this trilogy.
Blair, Ben and Issac are incredibly likeable characters , Ben in particular with the choices he has to make him incredibly loveable. I enjoyed that this MMF book had a great story line, with characters that you loved , an HEA that you were desperate for and although at times hot and steamy , not just full of sex like some MMF books. The intrigue, lies and plot keep you turning the pages . Loved Loved

FUDGING HELL, Annie Dyer! Wow! What did I just read?!

Intrigue, romance, surprises, and OH MY GOSH that steeeeeam!! Annie Dyer has absolutely slayed this trilogy and knocked it out of the park with Emeralds! Things we thought we knew get turned upside down and the twists keep coming and are spectacular! Gah, the writing continues to be hypnotic, entrhralling, and unputdownable. The romance is epic and the story is superb. Like, damn girl! Blair, Issac, and Ben get the HEA they’ve fought for and

The finale of the Tarnished Crown trilogy is told from the perspective of Isaac who shares his background and his rise in the political world.

All of the strings begin to pull together and close the net on the who and why Blair is being targeted. BUT, most importantly with Ben being seen walking off into the woods, Isaac has to pick up the pieces of Blair's heart and this opportunity for them to bond is steamy and sweet.
