Blurb: Théoden: Now that my King’s decree has been fulfilled, I need to get my city in order. I have my boys to brand before I send them off, and a stubborn wolf, vampire and dragon hybrid son to House train. Fun times ahead.

Noel: My night started off full of passion and pleasure. So that must mean I’m really bonding with my brothers and their sons. I’m also looking forward to my training with Marco. It’s not going to be fun or easy, but I know I’ll learn so much, which is what I want. I don’t just want to be feared as a vampire, I want to be respected, too.

Deacon: My arrangement with Théoden turned out to be more profitable for me than I had expected. The vampire Prince gave me my mate when he turned over the five humans I demanded. Elijah, though stubborn, will learn that we are meant to be together. He will submit to me by any means necessary.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 21600 words in this novelette.

Review: Branded: Prince of the City, is the first book in Season 3, of Nicholas Bella’s New Haven Series. As the series continues, we the readers, get an inside look at the progression the vampires make adding sons to the family. We also get to see more of Dante, although, he continues to be very adamant in his denial. Noel tries to offer encouragement as well as enlighten him if he continues to defy Théoden. Dante is not at the stage where he wants to hear any of this but time will certainly show he is fighting a losing battle.

Théoden carries through on branding his sons as well as his grandsons with the Prince of the City insignia. Even though it was painful, it was a very proud moment for all the vampires involved. The chosen few will leave with King Ara leaving behind their Sire and brothers at New Haven. Kind of a sad moment as they leave and a new adjustment for Théoden to endure.

Deacon is thrilled that he has found his mate, Elijah, but that situation is also going to take some time. Elijah seems to be making it through the transformation and I can’t wait until the mating ritual takes place. Once it does, Elijah and Deacon will be bonded for life, and I am anxious to see how and if they work together.

Nicholas continues to up the ante with each episode entwining his readers more and more. The sex is as potent as ever and I can’t help but smile as Noel, no longer, has reservations getting his share. He has become quite efficient at giving as well as taking. Something that still surprises him yet no longer questions.

Nicholas brings this episode to an end with a cliffhanger (thanks Nicholas, lol) that will no doubt be huge in the next episode. I can’t wait to see what will happen as Elijah has willingly put himself in a situation he has no way of winning. You have to give credit to the humans who have the courage to stand up to their alphas even though it is in vain. They will all figure that out soon enough.

An excellent start to a new season that has many facets yet to explore and I can’t wait to see where Nicholas goes next with his imagination and creativity.
