Loved this series & this installment. Nothing intelligent to say. Her books always need a reread from me. ( )

That was amazing!
Funny, intense, sexy and romantic.
One of my favorite series of all times. And the best thing is, characters not defined by their sexual preferences, they are multidimensional and complex, and I love K. J. Charles for doing such an amazing job on this series! ( )

The course of true love is not running smooth for Lucien and Stephen as each of them has to deal with clashes of loyalties and a figure from their past reappears.

I rushed through this one eager to find out what happened next and how the situations would be resolved. The short after piece provides a resolution, but I think despite it being the end of the trilogy she has left open the possibility of more adventures for Lucien and Stephen, though the cliffhanger at the end of the main work does suggest one of the other characters is going to move centre stage in a new series set in the same universe.

Overall, the trilogy falls into the category of guilty pleasure in that Ms Charles writes a darn good yarn but her central gay couple mimic straight romantic and sexual roles to the point I'm not sure how much difference it would make if Stephen had been Stephanie. ( )

NOT an audio book.

This book is even better than the previous ones, and all the threads come together to an epic end.

The relationship between Stephen and Lucien is simply breath-taking in its beauty and the commitment between these two is made plainer than ever.

And Merric is in love! Isn't it wonderful?

I only have left the last short story of this series, and I'm already mourning it. But hey! there are more K.J. Charles books out there, and I'm planning to read every. Single. One. ( )
