Hers To Command
Read from June 08 to 12, 2013
This is a hellva ride. Romance, suspense, intrigue, space ships and royalty...and 2 HAWT!!!! Heroes for the Princess, oh did I mention this is an Erotic Romance?
For some, existence without their mate might seem like the end of their world--for the members of Verdantia’s Tetriarch, it would be.
Love triangles often create disastrous relationships, but the unlikely members of the Tetriarch face worldwide disaster without the successful bonding of their trio.The inhabitants of the sentient planet, Verdantia, are poised on the precipice of extinction following a brutal invasion by an off-world, nomadic horde. Verdantia’s capital, Sylvan Mintoth, must have its failing energy shield restored, or the planet is doomed. The Elders know the shield can draw energy from only one thing—a very arduous and grueling coupling of two specific people who were pre-chosen by the planet Herself and promised by prearranged marriage contract.
Conte Camliel Aristos deTano, Ari, has long spurned the marriage forced upon him. His contractual bride, Princess Fleur Constante, is the beautiful future queen. She was but six years old when the contract was signed. Though young and inexperienced, she is willing to risk everything, including her own sanity, to save her planet.
Verdantia draws strength from the duo, but the sentient planet whispers to Ari that a third is necessary – Ari’s aide de camp, Visconte Doral deLorion, an angelically handsome, skilled assassin who silently surrendered his heart to Ari long ago.
The trio struggles to make this surprising partnership harmonious, pushing through pride, scars of past abuse, fears of inexperience and distrust. To save Verdantia, they must overcome their individual weaknesses and realize their full potential.
Only the tetriarch and their combined synergy, can harness Verdantia’s immense power to shield its citizens from invasion.
*I was given this book by the Author for an Honest review*
Books with a sci-fi feel are not my normal reading fare however when I read the blurb it intrigued me and I thought I'd give it a shot. I am so glad I was adventurous! The novel started out with a prologue which was a bit dry but so very necessary to the story and I recommend that you don't skip it. PAK created an interesting world where king and queens rule the world and others hold arms against invaders . The world is Verdantia and the current ruler is Fleur. I will only scratch over the details because I think knowing too much will spoiler the book. I will tell you this land has been invaded and the planet council who is supposed to help our planet out of it's situation condemned it and left it open for invasion.
This is where our heroes come in Ari is in charge of the Military and Doral is his second. PAK creation of these characters was perfect Ari, Doral and Fleur all had fully rounded characters and the reader has an instant connection with them. The plot takes them through personal combats and off world threats. It offered us angst on several different levels but the angst was not whiny it was more a growing and coming of age for the character. The plot, characters and world are all based on an Erotic Romance between the three heroes and the planet. Oh, did I mention this is a menage MMF book?
This is my first book by Patricia A Knight and I am so glad she asked me to read it. I am not sure I would have picked it up myself..I probably would have read space ships and ran in the other direction. If this had happened I would have missed an Erotic but sweet romantic story with a good strong plot and a very enjoyable read.
I rate this book 4.5 stars and look forward to reading more of her books
Thanks for the opportunity Patricia. I give this the t'irla 4 bear recommendation:)
READ RATE REVIEW the author thanks you!
