Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Buoni Amici Press and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


HE was the chief’s cousin…
Namoriee knew the only way to protect herself against the blond-haired gentle giant was to stay away. The way her heart pounded and her insides fluttered when he was near could only lead to disaster.
Two years ago he made a promise to her that she never thought he intended to keep.
She was wrong.
SHE was the handmaiden…
Tyronian wanted Namoriee even when he knew he couldn’t have her. The need to possess her was so deep, it took every ounce of mental and physical strength he had to keep the promise he made to her that stormy night.
He promised he would wait until she was older.
He promised her two years.
But now… time’s up.
Namoriee wants nothing to do with him but he has no plans on stopping until she’s in his bed, and he’s in her heart.
She will be his. Forever.
Whether she likes it or not.

My Thoughts:

Namoriee is willing to admit she’s afraid.  At times she seems to be a little timid but her past may hold answers as to why.  Tyronian knows whom he wants to share his life with.  Xavier seems to be a force to be reckoned with. If you want to know his story you will need to check out the first book titled How The Warrior Fell

Their world shows that there are men that think they can treat women any way they choose and damn what anyone else thinks.  I’m glad we’ve at least gotten somewhat better but in light of recent events we still have a way to go.  Tyronian is a great champion.  Xavier’s story seems to continue here so you may want to read this series in order so there’s no confusion as to what part he plays in this tale.

What I loved about this story is that it takes me to a time long ago.  It’s a place where violence is part of the norm - doesn’t matter if it’s against men or women.  Tyronian seems to be an alpha male but he’s patient when it comes to Namoriee.  He also seems to be very modest – not.  A secondary character named Tristan was a man that I found myself wanting to see more of – especially since he was kind to her.  Another secondary character that also seems to be Namoriee’s champion is Torrick.  This is a story that shows Namoriee’s steps into womanhood and the man more than willing to show her the way.  The only thing I couldn’t figure out is whose story comes next – I’ll just have to try and be patient.  So I should have plenty of time to get the first book read so that I can catch up once book three makes an appearance.

“Tyronian w-w-what are you doing here?”
Tyronian almost smiled at the stutter, a sure sign that she was unnerved, if it wasn’t the fact that she was about to get ready to sleep here—alone—instead of with him in their hut.
“Funny,” he said, closing the door behind him. “I was just going to ask you the same. Care to enlighten me?” He looked down at her when he came to a stop in front of her. Namoriee licked her lips nervously, an action that made his cock twitch to life.
The things he could make her do with those lips…
“I-I was j-just…” Her breath faltered out of her when he pulled her closer to him. His nose nuzzling the top of her head and breathing in the scent of her.
“You were just...what?” he prompted, enjoying how his proximity affected her.
“Aggod is sick so I j-j-just thought that I’d—”
“You just thought that you would avoid me by hiding out here, instead of coming to bed with your husband?”
Her silence told him that he was right.
“You can’t escape me, Namoriee. No matter how hard you try. If you run, I’ll catch you. If you hide, I’ll find you.” His hands traveled down the length of her, relishing in the tremble he felt at his touch.
She gave the slightest moan at the sensation, so quiet, he wouldn’t have heard it if he didn’t have his lips against her throat. Her skin tasted salty, and sweet.
It was addicting.
He gripped her hips, pulling her close enough that she could feel the bulge in his pants. His body’s natural response to her presence.
u’ll find that the man I was with you before is gone. He would have let you try and avoid him, and not done anything about it. He was a man who wanted someone bad enough that he was willing to wait for her to grow up…that man is dead.”
“D-d-dead?” Her voice was positively breathy. He nipped the juncture of her neck and shoulder.
“What man am I looking at now, then?” Shivering when his tongue apologized for the nip against her caramel flesh. He pulled back and smiled—but it wasn’t a smile.
It was primitive, possessive, and completely venereal.
“One that has been starving for two winters, which is a lot of time to figure out exactly what he’ll do once he has the woman he’s wanted. And believe me, she’ll get just as much pleasure out of the experience as he will.”

Nicole René is a San Diego native living with her grumpy kitty, Sebastian and her crazy cute Boxer, Walter.
When she’s not busy creating sexy alpha males, you can most likely find her with her nose stuck in a book reading OTHER sexy alpha males, kicking back with her friends and family, at the movies, or further fueling her “The Little Mermaid” and “The Lord of the Rings” obsession.
She is a certified klutz, often tripping over invisible objects, dropping things like they were hot, and playing ping-pong with the walls. She has lots of tattoos, loves to eat sushi—but hates eating cooked fish, hates going to the beach (even though she’s surrounded by them), and is still waiting for her Hogwarts letter to come in the mail.
