Blurb: They are at war, fearing for each other, struggling with the upbringing of their children and the survival of their country. They are kings.
With the future of the throne secured, Rin and Merin still have little time to rejoice for their children or the unity of their kingdoms. Stuck in the middle of a battlefield, their lives prove to be once again at risk, and Rin heads out on a long journey home with his heirs, leaving Merin to lead their army.
Rin receives his rightful title of king from the Kari council and for once feels as if he belongs on the throne without Merin there to guide him. Missing his husband, he raises their children the best he can, but there’s no end to the war in sight and, after months of futile conflicts, Rin thinks he sees Merin cut down in battle.
Distraught and with no patience for his council, Rin threatens the Riki, making even his own men fear him. Can Rin cope alone without the love of his life and still win the war, or will his sorrow mark the end of his reign?

Review: Each book in the Mending the Rift collection features Rin and Merin. You get to see when they get together and how they continue to grow. You have to read book one first because if you don’t then you can get confused. Now this story is an amazing one but they have a way with them that can actually have you feeling the opposite of what was intended.
Rin and Merin are so deeply in love but a war is in the way. Rin has had the babies and even though they are happy the war has made things so difficult. The Riki are a desert type of people who are running out of water. They don’t trust anyone, so all they do is continue the war. They have brought the war to close to the tent that holds Rin and the children. It is time to go home. Merin misses his mate, but he has to find a way to get it over with. Then he is injured and Rin loses it. His control of his magic is threatened, but damn the man was made to rule.
I must admit that this is not one of my favorite series but they are inching their way there. I love Rin and Merin. Rin is just more out there than anyone I have seen. He is feisty and has an attitude that should never change. He keeps Merin on his toes that is for sure.
It took me a while to get into Valentina’s stories, but I can tell you that she has an amazing gift at giving you a world that you can lose yourself into. I have never been a fan of fantasies but this is one of my favorites in that. There is a lot of danger and action written in these stories that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
I look forward to reading more by Valentina. They are not very big books but they have a lot of meat in them. The characters are well written with a lot of feelings and they seem to mix well with the others.
I had a blast reading them and would recommend reading them. What is better than sexy men, adorable children, hot sex, danger, excitement, suspense and action?
