Blurb: Théoden: My Father and Sire, King Ara is leaving New Haven this morning to embark on his campaign to take over Athens, Greece. I have no doubt that he will succeed but I am also concerned. This would be the first time since I was embraced by him that I am not by his side to see him to victory. I only hope that his army will be enough. As for the rest of my night, well, it’s time to take Dante to the next level and I’m going to have a hell of a lot of fun doing it, as will my sons.
Noel: Woke up to find that Dante is in our hands. My younger brother has no idea what’s in store for him. I’m caught between wanting to take it easy on him because I’ve been where he is, or teaching him a lesson myself for how rude he was to me when I was trying to help him out. I do know one thing, I don’t like that he and Romeo have a history. I’m going to be keeping my eye on them.
Deacon: Elijah is slowly coming on board. I think it’s because he’s realizing that this is his life now. There is no escaping, there is no going back. But there’s more to it than that. Since we’ve bonded completely, I think he’s feeling a kinship to me and our pack. We’re a family now and we look out for each other. I’m going to need him to feel that connection when we go before the Alphas and I present him as my mate. One false move on his part or mine could endanger our Pack.
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.

Review: Disciplined is the 4th episode and finale of Season 3. If you’ve made it this far I would definitely say you are just as hooked and addicted as the rest of us. Nicholas closes out this season with a lot of underlying tension and unanswered questions.
Théoden – The time has come for King Ara to leave and Théoden shows us a new side that he certainly doesn’t show often, if ever. Compassion and loneliness. This will be the first time, in hundreds of years, that Théoden doesn’t have his sire close to him. Luckily, he has a full plate with his new duties as Prince and his sons and grandsons to keep him occupied. It was still a heartfelt moment seeing them off and certainly a side we haven’t seen before from Théoden.
Don’t worry because he also reminds us that he is not a pushover as he doles out punishment when Noel displeases him. One thing I’ve noticed with all the vampires is they don’t hold a grudge against each other, usually. A good blowjob administered by one of his talented sons will put Théoden in a good mood and all seems forgotten. I’ve noticed this with Marco, as well. Noel is usually good at making Marco mad several times throughout the day but give him pleasure and you can find yourself back in his good graces. I’m sure, if needed, they can pull the offence back into their memory just as quickly.
Noel – Noel has come so far in such a short time yet, he still has much to learn. When he makes his wishes known that he doesn’t want to participate in spit-swapping he realizes immediately Théoden’s displeasure. Of course, it’s too late by the time he knows he screwed up and his brothers enjoy teaching him the lesson.
Noel gets to ride along with Marco and Bruce as they fulfill their duties as Generals. When a vampire goes against the decree to embrace a human, Bruce has no leniency towards him and hands out a pretty harsh punishment. Noel not only enjoyed watching how Bruce handled the situation but he was thrilled with the power and respect they were given with their new titles.
As he demonstrates later on a shopping trip with Marco, he is really getting the hang of being in control and taking what he wants. You can’t help but laugh because you have this visual of Marco grinning from ear to ear as he sits back and watches him. He is thrilled to see this new side of Noel emerge and he lets him know he is pleased.
Dante – I’m not sure what to think about Dante. He is agreeing and cooperating with everything Théoden asks of him but is he really embracing his future or just afraid of the outcome if he doesn’t? I think it’s a little of both and time will tell as I’m sure Théoden will set many traps to test his loyalty.
Théoden doesn’t make threats that he doesn’t uphold, and he now has ownership of Dante’s mother. This scares Dante more than any kind of punishment because he knows Théoden wouldn’t hesitate to follow thru with his threats. And, hey…it’s his mama. He wants her safe and protected.
Deacon – From the moment we met Deacon we knew he was plotting something, and has plans to use Théoden to get what he wants. Unfortunately, we are not privy to the details yet so I can only imagine the destruction and mayhem this will cause. Not only do I feel like this is a dumb move on Deacon’s part but I’ve grown rather attached to him and I hate to see him plot against the Prince.
Now that the mating ritual is complete, Deacon introduces Elijah to the other alpha wolves as his mate. Here we meet some new characters who appear to be just as conniving and smart as Deacon. It will be interesting to see if they become friend or foe because as Deacon comes across as being very patient and easygoing…he is anything but. It also appears he has set his plan in motion which adds a new level of intensity to the plot.
Whether it is vampires, dragons, or wolves, we have been ensnared by them and Nicholas’ storytelling ability. As this season comes to a close, Nicholas has left us hanging on every word and craving for more. The New Haven series is full of complex and intricate characters that have many facets making this a very enjoyable and captivating read. These are not standalone episodes as they must be read in order to understand the dynamics in place.
There is hardcore and erotic dialogue that the author makes no apologies for. The sex is explosive and plentiful but that’s not all there is. There is a very intriguing plot that has many twists and turns and if you are so inclined to jump in you will be in for a thrilling ride. This is not a romance, but you will love it just the same. Nicholas is crafty and clever with his storytelling, and he uses it against us, lol, giving him the ability to capture his audience.
