fe the heroine has been raised to be become the perfect wife- the perfect mate. And for the most part her parents have succeeded. She is polished, polite, sociable and everything feminine and graceful. Even as a child, the heroine knew the older boy was meant to be her mate. She would follow him everywhere, attached to his hip. The hero felt affection for the younger girl but as a teenager he couldn’t very well be attracted to a girl more than 6 years his junior. As they grew up, their parents fashioned together a betrothal to bond together the two powerful families. Now, the heroine is reunited with her childhood crush and he’s everything she remembered and more. Large, powerful, stunningly hansom but aloft and distant- the man who’s to be her husband and mate is a frightening creature. They understand their respective roles to their new relationship and as such develop a quick and cordial relationship. But the hero is reclusive and often leaves her alone in the empty apartment. She becomes lonely and as such that secret fire to be a passionate woman begins to emerge. She’s still a submissive but she starts to stand up for herself. She’s no longer complacent with just being a wife, she wants to be a mate- someone the hero can rely on and trust with his fears and desires. So when he’s accused of murder, the heroine’s inner beast comes out and she fights to prove the man she loves is innocent. This was a lovely romance. Slow paced and easy but never boring, I thought this romance had a smooth flow and a laid back vibe about it that made it a joy to read. I was in love with the heroine because she was the perfect balance of submissive and assertive. She would stand back and let the hero take the rains when needed but she’s also put her foot down when she had to. Because they had such an understanding of each other they really had the perfect relationship forged on that bond of a strong partnership. I feel like this author really is a hit or miss sort of story teller but this was defiantly as hit. ( )

A quick light read. Noticed that there wasn't a teaser for the next book in the back, so wondering if the series is over? There had been a cool teaser in the back of a book but I haven't seen it ever come out. It was with a witch. ( )

Yuck. 5 stars? REALLY?????

Let's see, woman raised as a belonging, sold to the highest bidder. Check. Male determined to turn a smart, witty, highly intelligent woman into a mindless automaton belonging, who "WILL NOT leave this apartment without permission!!!" Check. Throw in a little politics, a mystery figured out in the fist few pages, and a LOT of sex, and BAM. Another poorly written, poorly conceptualized bomb of a book gets published, while exceptional writers are still self publishing with their own money? (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.)

What is it with you people???? Woman as sex crazed idiot, letting some macho man do everything from rape to home imprisonment, then falling in LOVE with the pig????? And that is OK WITH YOU?!?!?! Oh. My. God. You R.E.A.L.L.Y. need a reality check.... and a good psychiatrist! ( )

I really enjoyed this book, but then I enjoy most of Ms. Warren's books. This book brings a new species with new traditions to the world of the others. ( )
