It was insanity. It was perfect. Perfect insanity. AWWW!! I found this story to be as enjoyable - actually even more so - than the first books in this series which surprised me! I didn't think that this series could have the same great kind of stories as the ones that told of the 4 princes & their brides, but I liked that the differences in Bron & Aeron's marriage tale gave a whole new breath of fresh air into the familiar Breeding Ceremony and what comes next. “Let this be the year. He’d made his offering. He lived a good life.” And oh boy! There is a LOT that follows!! I liked that this didn't focus so much on stubborn & unruly brides, but that it did focus on a more softer side. I did cry a lot more reading this one story than I did in the previous four combined! Poor Aeron! “This was not safe or routine. These men represented chaos and danger.” After learning about her history and getting an understanding of her people's lifespan I just wanted to hug her! I loved how her & Bron were able to...HA! No way! I'm not gonna ruin all of the magic for you! Suffice it to say that Michelle has given new life to this series, making it a little more tender, giving more info on the Worlds, the species and their way of life. Where the Princes’ stories (books 1-4) focused more on the couple, well lack of actually, this story gave more insight into the way of life for the Lords and their people as well as more outside of “Castle” life. More “Family” life. I enjoyed that a lot! Of course, that is not to say that everything was perfect from the start! "Patience. He needed patience. And an ungodly amount of luck." "They can be overbearing and impossible at times. They will spin you in circles with their ways until you want to hit them over the head with the nearest rock. I can relate." “Bron has his appeal, as well,” Aeron said, “when he’s not speaking to me as if I am to be ordered about like a servant." "She wasn’t going to spend the rest of her short life being dismissed and treated like a servant." (I think that those quotes say it all! Gotta love Michelle! I know I do!) Once again Michelle has mesmerized me with a funny, touching, sexy, beautifully written romantic tale! I have had the pleasure of reading quite a few of her books and have yet to find one that is NOT a fantastic & entertaining read! I love that this is now the 6th book that I have read about the Draig people and there is STILL more stories to be discovered! Yes, some of them are already written, but I have it on good authority that the Draig & Var muse(s) keep on providing, okay, pestering, Michelle with even more secrets to be discovered! And didn't King Llyr say that in a few years there would be a record number of bachelors attending the Breeding Ceremonies?!? Hmmm...maybe those muses are reaching out to us readers in hopes that we can help persuade Michelle to keep on writing these amazing stories?! No wonder Michelle is a USA TODAY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR AND A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER TOO! Either way, we all know that Michelle is truly a very gifted author with a phenomenal abundance of talent and ANY story she writes will be one well worth the read time & again!
