Blurb: Sylvie’s more human librarian than half-blood Fae princess and she definitely prefers books to men. Then, she learns her unwanted Lykae fiancée is marrying someone else. If she doesn’t stop the wedding, the Fae will resume the border war with the Werewolf nation. A high-handed Lykae security guard blocks her every move, and when her plans go awry, she’s kidnapped, stripped, and bound for his pleasure.
Caleb the Cold, King of the Lykae, will do anything to make his younger brother’s wedding special–even pretend he’s a security guard and kidnap his brother’s former fiancée. Punishing her is pure pleasure, until he realizes she’s his mate. Now he needs to woo the woman he’s tormented to the edge of madness, but is it too late to claim her heart, and make her his?

Review: Oh my. What a story. I loved parts of it while other made me laugh with incredulity and some simply made me cringe, they were so cheesy I couldn’t stand them. A weird mix really.
Let’s start with the story shall we? We have a Fae half-blood Princess betrothed to a Lykae Prince who disregards their engagement and marries another woman while lying to his brother and King of the Lykae clans that he resolved his engagement and keeps the gold and jewelry he’s supposed to give to the Fae King for dissolving the engagement for himself.
The result of all that; War!
But the half-human half Fae Princess Silvie has other plans. She decides to attend the wedding and pretend she is ok with it so her brother won’t go on full-fledged war. She didn’t count on the Lykae King though, who believed his brothers lies of her and thought she was only a manipulative bitch who used her body and sexuality to get trinkets and gold and money.
The result of that, Locked in a tower in the otherworld and sexually “punished” until she begged to be given release…
Oh God. Really, the plot was ludicrous. I couldn’t believe what I was reading most of the times and the dialogues, good Heaven, they couldn’t be cheesier. It really plunged the entire plot down earth and had me face palm myself way too many times.
But, there were funny parts there as well and some seriously wicked bloody scenes I simply can’t ignore. Those slashing paws, blood-dripping fangs, and awesome push-kicks were simply marvelous. So much so, that if it weren’t for the dialogues and the repetition of phrases and the constant inner thoughts that drove me crazy, I’d have rated this way higher.
As it is, if you don’t mind the above I suggest you give it a shot. The erotic part of this book was intense and hot enough and the action story quite decent. I’m just too picky when it comes to the balance between romantic and overly sweet/sappy.
