Product description

Product Description

Tactical, lethal, resolute.
Haunted by a centuries-old tragedy, there’s no room in Arawn’s life for softness. Every action he takes is for the betterment of his race and the good of the realm. He leads his elite band of warriors the same way he lives his life: full on, without compromise, determined. Except for one sexy female who happens to be his subordinate.

Tenacious, passionate, tough-as-steel.
Ria relishes the duties Arawn assigns her as much as she respects the deadly combatants on her team. And she has a secret: her formidable boss is also her deepest fantasy. Years of working under his authority haven’t dulled the spark she feels, yet her passion is tempered by the hints of loss she gathers about him. His dark and sexy moodiness draws her, but he’s a hard man to approach as he keeps the world at emotional arm’s length.

Secrets laced in blood burn his battle-hardened soul.
When Ria is gravely injured in the line of duty, Arawn can no longer fight his own long-simmering feelings. But a secret, more heinous and ugly than anyone could imagine, prevents him from surrendering his heart. Despite his intentions, he and Ria forge a connection both fiery and unexpectedly tender. Yet every day brings them closer to shocking facts. Evil stirs in his blood, and hiding the truth from her will be the ultimate betrayal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy, this book was great. 17 April 2017

OMG. I was so happy to get to read Arawn and Ria's story. I loved the Solsti books and am glad that the new series takes up where that one left off.

Ria was badly hurt in the battle at the end of the last Soltsti book. It has been a month since she was wounded and was put into a magically induced coma to allow her to heal. Arawn has been to visit her every day. He talks to her and tells her stories of past battles, and even about his childhood. He can't believe he almost lost her before he had a chance to explore the feelings that he has always had for her. He lost a mate a long time ago, and he never thought it was possible for him to replace her, but maybe...

Ria has always been in love with Arawn. She knows that he had a mate that died, and she understands that a mate bound broken by death is painful. She has tried not to push, but when she finds him with her when she awakens in the hospital she has renewed hope for her love.

Can Ria break through Arawn's barriers and convince him that they belong together? Can Arawn allow himself to love again? Is this really a second chance for him to have a destined mate? And what is the secret Arawn is hiding from them all? You must read and see. (Oh, and you will love to read about her "costume" on her important mission. I can hear Arawn's teeth grinding...)

5.0 out of 5 stars I ship Arawn and Ria 6 August 2015
By Whitney - Published on

Oh my word, I loved this book. I was OBSESSED with the Solsti Prophecy books and devoured them, this book is a spin-off of that series. I would say it could definitely be a stand alone novel, but you'd do yourself a disservice if you don't read the Solsti Prophecy books beforehand.

Anyway, we have Arawyn--Badass leader of the Lash Demons (basically super elite, fire wielding, mercenary skilled good guys). He, against his wishes, has fallen for one of his warriors--Ria.

Ria is equally Badass and knows Arawn comes with some heavy emotional baggage, but she wants to get under his icy exterior.

Meanwhile, Arawn, Ria and the other Lash Demons have to curtail a band of merciless bad guys who are after a weapon that could potentially kill hundreds of thousands of people.

Sparks ensue, steamy scenes between protagonists follow, and an abundance of mystery/action/ and fighting isn't far behind in this awesome book.

I liked how Ria could hold her own--she is definitely a warrior with a backbone and an innate ability to slip past Arawyn's emotional defenses.

If you like strong heroines, awesome paranormal plots, action, and super steamy/sensual relationships, get the damn book. You won't regret it. Happy reading :)

I have read the Solisti series, and absolutely loved it.
I know without a doubt that this series would be any different.
Sharon Kay, can write a book that keeps you on your toes and wanting to finish the book in hours.
I would recommend this author to anyone wanting an adventurous read and the best imitate senses I've read out of 200 books.
Keep up the great work Sharon.

This is a great start to a new series. I have enjoyed reading each and every book that Sharon has written and have always wanted more at the end of each story. There are so many characters that I would love to read about. If you’re a Black Dagger Brotherhood fan you will love Sharon Kay’s books.

Glad to see this author continued exploring the world built with the Solsti series.
Strong characters.
I do recommend reading the first series before this book. Most of the characters have been featured in the previous series. I expect the new characters will get their own stories.
