A headstrong sassy mortal, Rain is a Mageia living in Tetartos, the Realm of beasts and Immortals. Her nights have been restless, filled with sensual dreams of a big blonde Guardian whose glares indicate he wants nothing to do with her. She is determined to shake off the odd feelings until she finds out her dream lover is responsible for her rescue from a demented Demi-God. In doing so, his touch ignites something rare and coveted. Something that she’s never anticipated… Something he should have told her about. Rain is set on making him explain and then feel the full force of her ire.
After a devastating betrayal resulting in the loss of a close friend a century ago, Dorian refuses to trust or engage with Immortals other than his Guardian family. His years of brutal fighting in the underground Immortal rings are over. He patrols the Realms and slakes his lust with the humans on Earth. Existing, but not living as he used to. He knows the moment he scents Rain that he has found his mate and after touching her he plans to avoid her as long as he can... Until he learns she is in danger. Raging, his beast demands that he go to her, but taking her from their enemy has repercussions he fully plans to escape at all costs.
For Dorian, finding a way out of mating Rain means he could succumb to madness and harm those that mean so much to him… but giving in to his burning urge for her means losing control in a heated mating frenzy sure to ignite them both and link them forever.
Warning: brief instances of M/F/F and M/F/M menage, a hot headed, dirty talking alpha male, voyeurism and sexually explicit scenes.
Ok, so seriously, I have a total hard on for Dorian. He's a total dickwad, but damn he's hot. Rain is pretty hot too.
This book is sex, sex, and more sex. There's a story too, a damn good story.
Gah! The sexual tension was unbearable. I wanted to jump in the damn book and get down to business for them.
I've read all the books in this series so far and frankly, its hard to come up with different ways to say this series is awesome. And I hate to be repetitive, but I think I'll just have to get a megaphone and broadcast until everyone reads it.
I think I've said this before, but I want to reiterate here, each book in this series gets better than the last. It also gets kinkier than the last. Which is totally a good thing. *wink, wink*
I love that Dorian and Rain's element is water. The water play was hot.
I am curious about Vane and Brianne and what is coming for them. Really, really want to see how that plays out.
Also, curious what Elizabeth is up to, but damn isn't she a effin whackadoo on wheels.
I've been trying to figure out how exactly to put into perspective how much I enjoy this series. For me, Guardians of the Realms (GotR) is ranking right up there with IAD, Demonica and LOTU. (just dirtier)
