“Desire is an addiction that could destroy them all.
Cy’ren Rising, Book 2
The second son.
Lieutenant Commander Jace Harrow is the second son of House Morningstar—the spare, not the heir. Armored with an arrogant mask, Jace keeps the world at arm’s length to protect those around him from becoming targets for his bloodthirsty brother.
The broken sword.
Lieutenant Bryn Viera was a shadow sword and a decorated officer, dedicated to protecting her people. But for the past five years she has lived as a slave and has the scars to prove it. Bryn vowed to escape or die trying—until she met Sabine.
Born into slavery, Sabine never expected to fall in love. Her feelings for Bryn sparked her desire for a new life, but now Sabine is in phase, consumed by the need to mate with a male. Her dream of freedom with Bryn is on the brink of destruction, for to deny the phase means death.
Thrown together by the unforgiving demands of the phase, they must unite to save Cyprena’s people from a deadly new bioweapon—or be destroyed by the scars of their pasts.
Warning: Contains an arrogant officer with a weakness for having his hair pulled, an insatiable empath, and a badass warrior woman who form a male-female-female threesome sizzling enough to melt your shields.”
This series was my first outing in this genre. I first found “Nightfall” and I was hooked. Although it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.
Moringstar focus on Jace Harrow- the swarthy Lieutenant Commander. He did come off as stoic and a bit arrogant at first- but that was just the surface; underneath he is a maelstrom of passions.
As well as being a very erotic tale, the back story is enough to satisfy any sci-fi geek girl.
There is plenty of excitement in this space opera; in and out of the bedroom. There is explicit sex and threesomes, but nothing vulgar. It is all done tastefully with emotional romantic ties.
It is a brilliant series an I can’t wait for Sunslingers, just to see what happens next.
