Publisher Description

Readers' Crown Finalist! A brash, kick-ass heroine with a hidden vulnerability and an arrogant king forced to be a slave... 

Riley St. Claire has always followed her own rules. When she discovers her employer’s secret, she has to leave town in a hurry or end up buried with the dead guy she found, but when Riley is picked up by a passing trader from another world, she ends up a little farther away than she intended. 

After the King of Sarafin, Vox d’Rojah, was captured and sold to a mining operation, the last thing he expected to find was his bride mate. Vox isn’t sure which would be easier: another war with the Valdier or holding on to the human who will be his Queen. Fighting pirates, traders – and Riley – this will be one heck of an escape!

Not what I expected

I have mixed feelings about Riley. I think Riley was suppose to be a strong female with sass. In the beginning that’s exactly what it was. As the story progressed, I found her behavior to be embarrassingly ignorant. I know, I know. She was also too insecure. Very different than the other females for sure. However, she was the perfect mate for Vox. Definitely kept him on his toes. Vox was just what I expected from other books. I did enjoy the excitement in this story, which was missing in Ha’ven’s. I loved Bob, Fred, Tor and Lodar and the wedding, which is exactly what I expected. Enjoy.

I found myself frequently uncomfortable with Vox’s behavior and many of his and Riley’s interactions are extremely rape-y. This detracted heavily from the story.
