Blurb: Attending the annual Event, Joseph encounters a Tsatrya Leader capable of making him question his own sexuality. Can Mykael of Lithonur convince him that they are true mates or will Joseph deny their connection?
Joseph Archer never gave much thought to the Tsatrya, a race known for their superiority to humankind in strength and speed, as well as extreme good looks. That is…until he met Mykael of Lithonur, ruler of one of the continents of the New World. Joseph’s uncontrollable desire for the man challenges his belief in his own sexuality. Falling hard and fast for the Tsatryan leader, Joseph’s first instinct is to deny the connection. Will Mykael be able to convince him they are true mates?
Review: Joseph is talked into going to the Event by his best friend Jess, he really doesn’t want to go and doesn’t see the point as he is straight and can’t get pregnant. Mykael is being pressured to take a mate, as the leader of the Continent of Lithonur he is expected to have an heir, but the mate he finds is not the one that his friends expected.
Wow really, really great book that has a wonderful storyline and a great plot. Joseph may have met the only man/Tsatryan of his dreams but that doesn’t mean he’s going to rush into anything, Mykael has found his true mate and really doesn’t want to let him go. I loved this story as even though they both felt the bond Joseph wants to make sure it’s the right thing for both of them and even though Mykael would like to push the issue he lets Joseph make his own decisions.
This is a well written thought out story that isn’t overdone or crammed with too much information; you get just the right amount of info to keep you interested without it being long-winded or to technical. Fantastically done is all I can say. The plot was brilliant and gave you a good twist that I didn’t expect, there was worry and angst which was in keeping with the circumstances and there was happiness and joy for all concerned in the end. Yes I know I am being very vague but there is no way that I will give the plot away for this one, all I will say is that the Tsatrya race are all male and they can get pregnant but a successful pregnancy is rare, does that give you a clue? Maybe but don’t count on it.
The twist in this is really well done and the explanation is short and succulent and is brilliantly done so you don’t feel cheated at all. The characters are all brilliant, the sex is hot, everything fits together nicely and it’s a bloody good read, so I recommend you get this book and enjoy.
P.S. If you read this Ann T. Ryan then I want a sequel for Jess with his story being told. Please with whipped cream and cherries on the top… I’ll even add sprinkles.
