Carna and her sisters carry the last of the royal blood. Every male shifter in the world craves to mate with one of the elusive princesses to secure their place in history. Only royal blood will ensure the continuation of all shifter species.
Although she may be the heir to future generations, Carna wants no part in a forced seduction. She's independent and wants to make her own choices, and mate for love, not out of necessity. Carna and her sisters split up and go into hiding, but not for long...
When a rogue group of shifters captures Carna and insists she choose one of them as her mate, she puts up the fight of her life, escaping into the forest. Once on the run again, she quickly learns that running and hiding are taking their toll on her. She needs to settle down and why not with one or more of the sexy men begging for her affections? But can she find love amongst all the chaos?
Be Warned: menage a cinq romance, menage sex, anal sex
Carna is tired of being at looked for what she represents and not who she really is. It's enough unwanted attention to send her and her sisters into hiding for a bit of peace. They had done well in hiding themselves and taking every precaution including separation to make it that much harder, but modern technology still found a way. After being drugged and kidnapped, Carna is forced to see what she has been missing with mate's destined to change her mind.
An incredibly hot short story chock full of steamy shifter loving. Amazingly enough, each of the men in this ménage à cinq are uniquely characterized and given a different animal, so there’s no confusing which is which. Under the circumstances, Carna's tenacity to want mates who love her for her is admirable even after things progress to the point of no return. The intensity of the connections is sizzling to say the least. Although the overall world-building felt lacking and the ending a bit rushed, the story was still pleasurably enjoyable.
This is the first in a new series by Ms. Espino and it will be nice to see how things progress in this pack seduction.
