So every once in a while, I get an offer to read some great books by some wonderful authors, and today, I get to share some of that with you! I’ve read the first book of the series and loved it, so I am so excited to show you the third installment of a very fun great new series! 🙂
Rosemary has lived in a tower, locked away from the rest of the world, for her entire life. Her mother, a witch who leads the resistance against the bloodthirsty kings of the five kingdoms, is her only company. Rosemary knows that her battle-weary mother relies on the golden power flowing through her veins for the energy to continue the good fight, but she can’t completely smother the selfish yearning to see the world beyond the safety of their hidden valley. When the demon prince of her mother’s horror stories literally crashes into Rosemary’s life, she finds herself facing her wildest dream…and her mother’s worst nightmare.Adonis is a demon determined to bury his desire for love in the pleasures of the flesh. Bound by a vow to maintain his physical form, Adonis requires a great deal of energy just to live, energy he can only absorb through the carnal arts…more energy than any one woman could ever provide. Adonis knows he could never offer a woman the fidelity she would deserve as his wife, and so carries on with his wild ways, his cryptic smile hidden behind a puff of smoke. No woman can reach beyond the heat of his embrace to touch his heart. Not even the golden haired maid whose lonely eyes keep wooing him back to her side.
An incubus can only deny his nature for so long. Long golden hair. A tower with no stairs. A witch with serious possession issues. Debilitating blindness. None of these are enough to keep a demon from climbing…the Golden Stair.
So if you haven’t read the first two books of this series, each story is a retelling of the classic fairy tales, just with a supernatural twist, and some awesome writing. And I loved loved the first one, which was the werewolf meets Cinderella LOL and the second one, is Snow White, and Prince Charming is a vampire LOL and now, we’ve got Rapunzel meets Prince Incubus. HEHEHEHE I absolutely love this author’s imagination and where she is taking the stories. You still get the feel for the original tale, and yet, you love this new rendition just as much! Maybe just a little more fun and gritty!
Ivy is your Rapunzel, she has this awesome hair, and magical healing powers, and boy can she paint! And she’s so sweet, and she takes care of her mother every night when she gets home from fighting the horrible war. Except that Ivy finds out that her life is basically a lie, and the horrible war starters are the ones fighting for peace and her mother is actually her kidnapper. And she wants out. And she’s willing to fight for it. She has probably a lot to deal with all at once. She maybe hasn’t had the horrible up comings as the other ladies so far of the series, but she gets it all dumped at once. I think she handled it pretty well LOL Adonis is so easy going, and you really get to learn his secret, that he wants love, even if he can’t have it, and why he’s in the body he’s in, and why he did it. And yes, he’s an incubus, but he’s not a bad one. And he’s actually quite loyal and devoted. And I think he is just so darn cute!
This romance was a little hotter than the others, though it was still just as sweet. I think they fill each other to make the perfect fit for what the other was missing. And I LOVED the plot twist, and the story of Ivy’s “mother” and how everything came to be. And I loved that I could FEEL when they would paint. Very cool! I love everything about this series. And now, I am learning even more about the princes and their back stories, but also more about their present and their kingdoms. I’m finding that really cool because you are learning a little as you go. I absolutely cannot wait for more! 5 GOLDEN STEAMY SUNNY PAWS! 🙂
