This is book one in Gemma James’ latest series The Zodiac Queen which is a twelve part collection.
This series follows Novalee Van Buren a twelve year old Queen who has been contracted out by her Uncle to the Zodiac Brotherhood. When she turns eighteen she is to spend 12 months, a month each with each brother before being auctioned to be married to one. But the one catch is she must remain innocent and untouched until her wedding night.
Novalee doesn’t want to leave her home and move to a foreign land with 12 men. 12 men with varying degrees of sexual desires who will use her as they see fit as long as they don't take her virginity. She definitely doesn’t want to be humiliated and treated like crap by her uncle and especially by 12 strangers.
Part one "Aries" is Liam Castle the Chancellor story and the first of the 12. After first impression he is harsh and blunt, but as the book went on you got to see a different side to him. He‘s just trying to prepare her for his more crueler brothers.
By the end of the book Novalee thinks she’s in love with Liam, and isn’t willing to leave him. But anything can happen as it’s only been one month, there is still 11 more to go and 11 more man to spend time with.
This was a really great book to kick start a new series and can’t wait to see what Ms James has in store for us with the eleven other instalments.
If you are familiar with Gemma James’ work you know she likes to write dark books and this one is right on the edge of dark. The sexual tension and chemistry between the characters will have you needing a cold shower to cool off.
