Now first and foremost this is a review stop, if you're a jungle regular you know reviews can be found in the Reviews page HERE, as well as on Goodreads. I also have plenty more book goodness to share, so before we get to that here's the kickass cover and blurb...
I found out what I really wanted and was forced to give him up. Just as I found out who I really am, I was presented to the elusive Horde King as a gift.
This was the mystical being I was hidden from for more than twenty years.
Although Ryder promised to save me, I couldn't let him get near this creature, so I willingly (sort of) signed myself over to be his new plaything.
Now in the Horde Realm, nothing is going remotely like I thought it would.
My powers and emotions are on the fritz, and each day seems to bring surprises that I am not sure how to deal with.
The Horde King thinks he has me exactly where he wants me.
He thinks he has taken all of my options away.
I still have choices.
Embracing what destiny has planned for me, or escaping it.

Ryder: It’s complicated, but I see the road growing clear of obstacles.
Me: Did you feel smug about deceiving us as well as Syn with your secret?
Ryder: It was a needed secret. Sometimes, you have to be bad to be good.
Me: How does it feel knowing you're soon to be a father?
Ryder: I haven’t had time to think about it yet. Bigger things are playing on my mind.
Me: Are you worried about what kind of parent you'll be?
Ryder: No, I have Synthia who will keep our children busy, I’m sure. She’s going to be a great mother.
Me: Now, we all know Syn can hold her own against you. However, is there anything you would take back or maybe have handled differently?
Ryder: No, because everything that I did brought me to Syn, and anything undone could change that.
Me: We know it hasn't been easy for you, but if it came down to it who would you pick: Faery or Syn and your child?
Ryder: Faery is a part of the Fae, without Faery, there is no change of survival for my children…so I would pick Faery to save my children. Synthia would never forgive me if I didn’t fight for Faery, which our children would need to live.
Me: Can you give us any clues to any surprises Amelia might have in store for us?
Ryder: Amelia doesn’t control us, we allow her to watch from a far, but the story is ours.
Me:Lastly what's it really like working with Amelia?
Ryder: She gives us free reign, so it’s a simple matter. We show her, she writes it, it’s as simple as that.
But wait there's more! I have an excerpt if one if my favorite scenss for you, showing Ryder's sweet and playful side *swoon*...
“Now you admit it?” He continued to play. I liked this lighter side of him, even if he did want to bubble wrap me, and lock me in a panic-room until I gave birth.
“No, I’m not a Fairy. I’m Fae, and even though I suck at being one, I’m here. My old life is gone, you knocked me up. So yes, Ryder, I admit that I’m Fae, and I’ll even admit to being Blood Fae, and hell, while I’m at it, I’ll admit I like you. Now you, you’re still a Fairy,” I said, smiling impishly.
“You like me,” he said, shaking his head. “You like me.”
“Yes, it could be the hormones, but you are kinda cute…for a Fairy.”
“For a Fairy?”
“You should really get this hallway checked out, seems to have an echo in it.” I smiled even wider.
“I guess I could admit a few things,” he replied in a sexy voice that was filled with heat.
“Such as?” Yes, I was curious to know what he felt, since he never said anything apart from wanting me. Shit, we were having twins! And, I had no idea where we stood on this.
“You’ve got a great ass,” he said, never taking his eyes from mine as we walked, oblivious to anyone watching us. “Your screams when I fuck you? I like that shit, too. The noises you make when I drive my cock balls deep and you ask for more? Fuck, I seriously like it…a lot.”
Okay, maybe I fell right in to that one. “Flattery will get you nowhere,” I continued to tease him.
“I love the way that your eyes glaze over with heat, and your bottom lip quivers when you scream my name. I love the way you come on my cock,” he continued playing.
I swallowed and shivered involuntarily. Freaking Fairy had game! And he was using it all on me, and I was allowing it. “I like the way you fall over when I kick your ass.”
“You’ve never kicked my ass,” he replied easily.
“Never say never, Fairy,” I said before I turned and kicked out with one foot, while I planted my hands against his chest and shoved him. I stayed long enough to catch the look of shock on his face, before I turned and ran as fast as my legs would carry me down the long hallway. I squealed with laughter from the look on his face as I ran forward.
I’m not sure what I had expected, but c’mon, he was Fae. He sifted in front of me, which I hadn’t seen coming until it was too late. I ended up colliding full-force with his much larger frame. Hitting Ryder at a full sprint was like hitting a brick wall. I screamed as I started to fall backward, but he caught me easily.
“Shit!” he growled with a hint of laughter in his tone.
I was quickly pulled up and pressed against the warmth of his wide chest, which I’d just a second ago face planted. “What the hell do they feed you? Cement?” I said as I relaxed against him.
“You knocked me on my ass, Pet.”
“I did, didn’t I?” I snorted, happily flashing him a haughty smile.
“I should spank that pretty ass for doing so,” he whispered heatedly as he stalked me. I was walking backward toward the door I knew to be behind me.
