In the matriarchal world of Merab,
Temair, Crown Princess of Emetra, has always known that she
would one day be queen. But that far off day is approaching
faster than she ever could have expected. Before she can
ascend to the throne, however, Temair must travel to the
four lands of Emetra and choose one consort from each house
whose powers will strengthen her own. Temair has found her
First Consort in the dominating, protective Fyre Lord Miach.
The next stop on Temairís journey is the Rayne lands, where
her choice of consort is far more difficult. Temairís mind
says the second son of Lady Rayne would be the best choice.
Heís politically savvy and Miach likes him well enough. Yet
Temairís body and magic crave Dathan, the eldest. Dathan is
charming, relaxed, and seems to live to make Miach crazy.
With the stability of her kingdom on the line, her First
Consortís happiness to consider, and the added danger of a
brewing rebellion amongst some of the men of Merab, Temair
must question what her mind and heart tell her before she
chooses which Rayne Lord will take his place at her side.
Prepare to be swept away into a world
of magic and sensuality, the likes of which only Violet
Summers could create. Temairís Rayne builds
on the imaginative world of Merab which Violet Summers first
introduced in Temairís Fyre and I couldnít be more
excited. The tranquil beauty of the Rayne lands was an
enchanting contrast to the fierce elegance of the Fyre lands
and as I read I felt myself being pulled further into the
magic the dynamic author duo created.
At its heart, Temairís Rayne
isnít just about magic and politics, but about love. What
truly captured me about the story was the fluid blending of
relationships in this tale. To begin, thereís Temairís
growing bond with Miach. Desire bloomed instantly between
them in Temairís Fyre, but I absolutely loved
watching their attraction and friendship deepen into love.
Temairís Rayne brings Temairís Second Consort
into her life, Dathan. Dathan is a marvelous contrast to
Miach. Heís joyful where the other is serious, light where
Miach is dark, but no less protective or loving of Temair.
Heís also far more relaxed, both in terms of attitude and in
his perception of sexuality. I was intrigued by his
attraction to Miach and Miachís reaction to it. I look
forward to not only seeing Dathanís bond with Temair
growing, but to Dathan and Miachís relationship developing
as well. I canít wait to see how the emotional and sexual
journey for Temair and her men continue in future books.
A dash of danger added by the attempts
rebels make on Temairís life adds a different kind of energy
to Temairís Rayne. So too do the comforting
bonds of sisterly affection between Temair and her two best
friends. There is so much to love about Temairís
Rayne that it is with great excitement that I
Joyfully Recommend it!
