This book runs concurrently and overlaps with book one. Liked the characters and how they came to be a triad. Madden & Kian were likeable and Vanessa was interesting. Vanessa was a doctor on earth but has lost her job due to making a decision based on what was best for a patient, not what was right for the hospital. She accepts a medical post on Daeria to look after the human surrogate women moving there. Madden is a healer and Kian is one of the king’s guard. Vanessa is mate to both of them but she has to get her head around being a mate as she is not part of the program. She also has a difficult decision to make due to a hereditary disease. I enjoyed how this story played out and some of the other characters that are introduced and will be interested in reading their stories when they come. I was offered this book by the author but read it through KU.
