Blurb: Théoden: There is cause for celebration for many reasons. Dante, my young wolf, has lost some of his bite. My sons take their place as official Generals of the city. I appoint my new Lords into their positions and my rules for both will be revealed. On top of that, I get to spend some more quality time with my son, Dante, before the sun rises. It's great to be me.


Noel: Training with Marco has been hard as hell. I'm actually looking forward to taking a break, even if it means going to the arena for vampire festivities. Théoden has given us the night off after the celebration. I wonder what trouble I could get into?


Deacon: Having claimed my mate, Elijah, I can feel my power increase. I was going to have to let the other Alphas know that I am now elevated and I will have my mate by my side when I do so. I want them to see him with their own eyes. If I’m lucky, it will have the desired effect on Josef, and he’ll make all the moves I need him to.


Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 26600 words in this novelette.

my review...

There is never a dull moment in the House of Théoden. If you thought for one minute, Théoden was mellowing or becoming more laid back with his new title as Prince, Manipulation, will show you just how wrong you were.

As they all gather at the induction ceremony, Théoden proves why he is the Prince. Why he is feared among all of those around him. As he demonstrates his abilities for the crowd he expects no less than the respect he deserves. And he gets it. Even King Ara is proud of how he handles himself. You would be a fool to go against him or his decrees because he shows no mercy as he demonstrates with humans during the ceremony. The cringe factor shoots through the roof and I dare anyone witnessing this demonstration to defy the Prince of the city.

King Ara will be leaving very soon and he wants the child sired by Dante to go with him. Dante is still holding on to a small sliver of denial, but Théoden will have none of it. He wants his full trust and loyalty and he shows Dante just how powerful he is if he continues to defy him.

Dante shows his weakness giving Théoden the upper hand. But, as Théoden has already told and shown Dante, over and over, he will get what he wants. Right now, he wants Dante to sire a child for the King.

 Ashton, the chosen child, is nothing short of perfection. He is loyal, strong, and trustworthy, and most of all, once he gets thru the transition, he is immune…to everything. OH, what a prize he is. It’s a shame he must go with the King instead of staying with Théoden. He is one hot commodity.

Noel is really enveloping his vampire status. He is getting better and stronger each day with Marco and even though he still wishes to keep a small part of humanity in his heart, he is not foolish enough to not be completely on board with every thing Théoden expects from him.

One of my favorites among the vampires is Bruce and Ryan. I love, love Ryan and his naughtiness that knows no bounds. I cannot stop smiling the whole time he is around. I can see him clearly as he taunts “his daddy” to spank him or comes across as shy batting his eyelashes. Shy, he is not. Naughty and ornery…very much, and I love it.

Deacon surprises me most of all. Now that the mating ritual is complete and he and Elijah are mates their bonding only grows stronger each day. Elijah is still not completely certain he go through with Deacon’s demands since he is not gay. It doesn’t matter whether you are gay, straight, bi or whatever, the mating bond connects them at a level unlike any other. Elijah may not understand it but he can’t deny what he knows to be true.

I don’t know how to be a man’s lover. I’m not gay, but I’m forced to be in a gay relationship because of what happened.
— Elijah

 What surprises me about Deacon is how he allows Elijah to argue with him and tell him no when he doesn’t want to do something. Of course, Deacon is a full alpha and even though he may laugh at times he will only take so much before his temper comes out and puts Elijah in his place. I really enjoy these moments we get to see them together. I have no doubts that they will become a couple feared by all the wolf packs.

Nicholas is more amazing with each new episode. His ingenuity continues to increase giving the readers an action packed, fast-paced, thrilling, hot and sexy, story each time.  He has the ability to take us into this world he has created and give us plots and dialogue we didn’t know existed. He leaves us at the end only wanting more and impatient for the next episode.

If you are not on this fast moving, paranormal addiction, you need to get on board quick. I guarantee that once you get a taste of this naughtiness you will be starving for more. Thank goodness Nicholas doesn’t keep us waiting too long. Another great episode!  5 Hearts
