21849362I have been waiting for this one for over a year and I was not disappointed.

This aptly named instalment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series focuses on the two h’Sibe brothers Trez and iAm as they try and find a way out from under Trez’s life sentence as a sex slave and impregnator to their race’s princess.

But fate of course never runs in a straight line and can be a fickle bitch.

In previous books we saw Trez fall for a female named Selena and keep his distance from her in the usual convoluted male idea of protecting her. Needless to say things heat up between them here and what complicates matters further is that Selena is living on borrowed time.

But that’s nothing compared to iAm unknowingly shacking up with Trez’s betrothed and winding up the next king of their race.

Really sad and unexpected ending though. Usually each story has happily ever after but not so for Trez and Selena. A little surprising but i guess the gods cant fix every broken heart.

Going to stick with the BDB world for a bit longer.  I found a short story I had somehow missed before called Father Mine.  Let’s check it out shall we?
