I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Setta Jay!
What an original story by Setta Jay. I have been following the author for some time now, and she always proves to me, time and time again, that she can take a trope and twist it into something original and refreshing. I loved the mix of tropes in this book; royalty, arranges marriage, mercenaries, the worlds elite. Jay managed to make all these come together in a harmonious way in this story, when it could have easily been a terrible mish mash.
I can’t review this book without commenting on the sensual scenes. They were’t the most beautiful explicit scenes I had ever read, but my my, were the smooth and sensual when you read them. They will make you hot under the collar alright. Wowy! Where’s my Viktor?
I really enjoyed how this book sets up a series. How it gives us hints at other romances. If there’s something I learned with the Guardians series, is that with each book, the world solidifies, and the books get better. I cannot wait for the rest of this series!
