Tor Omar James, King of the North African pride, needs one woman if he has any hope of keeping his sanity – Anise, his Soul’s Mate. There’s only one problem: she’s pregnant by Derrick, Tor of the United States pride. Anise is caught between the love that every Lycan covets and the motherly devotion to the son she would sacrifice so much for. Can Omar survive the takeover of the US pride and convince Anise that he is more man than lion?
Asim Tyson, the Defender of the Hafiz, is fighting off the insanity of his longing after losing his Soul’s Mate in battle. Unfortunately, his self-centered existence results in the gross neglect of his people when they need him the most. When Harmony appears in his life, he is forced to make a choice. Should he resist the lure of Harmony’s caustic melody or embrace his weakness in order to keep her safe?
This second instalment of "A Guardinian World Novel" comprises of two novellas. The Takeover and The Defender.
Omar, the King of the North African Pride was introduced in The Lycan Hunter.
Anise is his Soul Mate but as it so happens she is pregnant with someone else's child. Omar plans a Takeover to claim Anise as his mate.
Derrick is currently leading this pride and his treatment of Anise leaves a lot to be desired. He has his own agenda and he doesn't appear to care about anyone else. When Omar arrives for the challenge, he is appalled at what Anise has to endure. Anise on the other hand has difficulties in trusting Omar because of the way she has been treated by Derrick.
I found myself engrossed in this novella and couldn't wait to get to the next one.
This novella is about Tyson who is still longing for the Soul Mate he lost eight years ago. He neglects his duties as the Defender of the Hafiz and is barely aware of what is going on around him.
When he comes across a battered Harmony who has managed to escape her captors, he begrudgingly takes her in. She is aware that he is her Soul Mate but his attitude doesn't encourage any interactions. She is in her "Rut" which can only be alleviated by having sex but Tyson is very reluctant to relieve her pain until he is left with no other solutions. It then transpires that there is a scam where the women are being abused in the worse possible ways.
Will Tyson pull himself together and put a stop to these atrocities?
Both these novellas are fast paced with the infusion of love, greed, deceit, justice and redemption. It's advisable to read The Lycan Hunter first for the useful background information on the world of the Lycans and the Hunters.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange
for anhonest review.Thank you for introducing me to the Guardinian World which I found fascinating.
About the Author
Kelsey Jordan is the author of The Lycan Hunter, the first book in her Gardinian World series. Though she has a preference for all things paranormal and romantic, Kelsey admits she just writes what her muse demands of her. It’s less painful that way. When she isn’t enjoying the momentary benefits of playing god to the many characters that live in her head, she can usually be found curled up with a book, killing something in a video game, or spending time with her family. At some point in the day she is probably drinking more than her recommended dose of coffee, but don’t tell her that. She doesn’t care about recommended servings.
As a Texas native and self-described Air Force brat, Kelsey now lives in Georgia with her husband and their tutu-wearing minion.
