“If I was meant to be controlled, I would have come with a remote.”

It’s time to become the queen I was prophesied to be.

The journey to save my kingdom and restore balance to the realm might break me, but I’ll be damned if I give up without one hell of a fight.

I’m not that arrogant girl they all knew in my previous life. Let them underestimate me, it’ll make victory that much sweeter.

I’m coming for your Anshar, and not in the way you’d like.

Ash is ours.

The second instalment in this series , really felt like the author found her groove with exploring the fae side . We continued where we left off with the first book and honestly that felt a like good starting point considering how the first book played out.

With readers having a sound understanding of the dynamics of the harem given their shared pasts from book one. This book allows us to see how  big of role Lana has to play in this realm. That she been born to be a Queen and needs to grow into this role.

Lana has been sheltered despite her traumatic childhood prior to Beth. The boys really took their time in the first book and  now that she is given the leader role. It wasn’t going to be easy especially given Ash.

If you know what happened with Ash previously  you will be curious to know what happens.  Caulder addresses it perfectly in this second book. The questions are answered as the harem grows into  deeper sensual relationship and their bonds grow deeper.

They have moved past from the easy banter and sweet nicknames. There is a lot at stake and I can’t wait to read the finale and see how things will play out.

Err…not sure how much of an intro you guys are looking for..I don’t like long walks on the beach, I’m a Gemini, and my favorite color is teal. I think that covers the typical first date questions. I’m engaged to the love of my life that pushes my buttons like no other. I have a ginger cat named “Meowmeow” and a staffordshire pit bull named “Winrey”. You’re a cool cat if you know where we got the dog’s name from.
