I love men. Seriously love men. Looooooooove men. There is just something about the hard muscles, the gruff sound of a masculine voice, the curve of a beard shadow, the slope of a shoulder, the scrape of a callused hand…
Although, Myla makes me stop and think. This chick kicks ass! Literally. She is stronger than a half dozen men, kills without fear and can make even the toughest warrior pee his pants. (She does too, poor Bryton).
She has killed, you see her kill, and she promises to kill again if anything threatens her charge, the Crowned Prince of Eldwyn. But she has never been given the chance to smell a wildflower, taste a berry or feel the wind on her cheeks. Taric gives her the opportunity and introduces her to many more pleasures. Many. More. Pleasures. Mrrrrrrrrrrrow.
Now, she does fight this. She even tells him she doesn’t like the new sensations she is feeling. They confuse her. Suddenly she doesn’t want to bite but lick, not stab but stroke, not kill but kiss. Writing a virgin warrior was a unique experience. She had to be undefeated in battle and untrained in the bedroom. Even then, she wasn’t used to taking orders. She employed military strategy under the covers. Seek and discover. Experiment and explore. Master and revel.
Magic bites… and its name is Myla.
Created at Prince Taric’s birth, Myla is a spell, an enchantment designed to appear and protect him when he needs it most. She has always been content to do her duty…until one night of forbidden passion leaves her longing to experience life—and love—as a mortal woman.
Yet the risk is too great. Even if her blood runs as red as his, she can never give him the one thing he needs: a child.
Taric’s blessing—and his curse—is knowing the kingdom’s future depends on his producing an heir to continue the bloodline. His bond with Myla has always been that of protector and protected. When it suddenly becomes something much more, he unwittingly sentences his people to certain death.
An old enemy is plotting to destroy all he holds dear: his lands, his people, his father, and his lover. And this time, even if they fight tooth and blade, their shared magic may not be enough to save them…
