Publisher's Summary

Sixteen years ago, Princess Halla of Yshrem saved the life of an eight-year-old barbarian boy and watched her kingdom fall to ruin, all on the same day. Now, she is a forgotten spinster in a quiet temple, living her days out in solitude. The last of her line, she exists in the hope that she has been forgotten, for to be remembered by the enemy is to be certain death.

One person has not forgotten her. Mathior, now 24, is the fierce warrior king of the Cyclopae. Yshrem is in turmoil and his advisors have a suggestion - kill the last remaining member of the royal line, and there will be no rivals for the throne.

Mathior has a different idea. He's loved Halla for 16 long years, and it's time he claimed her as his wife. But a barbarian's wedding customs are unlike any other...

Contains mature themes.

Ruby D. and Mason Lloyd are a good combo !!

I love that the author chose Mason as the male narrator. I am a big fan of Mason, especially the barbarian series. But I personally am not a fan of the female narrator. She has also narrated with some of my top romance male narrators and think bummer. Ive tried to like her but her voice is not strong or has any passion or intimacy to me. Her male voice is awful...she needs to work on that. The story itself was a little different and non traditional and I didn't have a problem with that. I just would have enjoyed this book more with another female narrator. I really like Ruby and Mason but think the sensuality that was supposed to be a big part of this story could have been a whole lot better if Mason narrated the entire story. I didnt get one tingle during her parts. But thats just me. But I still gave it 4 stars because of the author and Mason. She totally ruined the wedding night for me 😔😔😔 Mason should have narrated that part.

Fire the female voice

The story was a little predictable but could have recovered if not read like a twelve year old the entire time. The whiny voice made me quit listening. I love Ruby Dixon novels and this one fell short and was made worse by the female narrator making an adult male sound like a child the entire time.

Amazing Story

I love this book...I wish it was a little longer but it was so amazing. I do not quite understand why others complain about the female narrator. I think the narration from both was amazing. I was wrapped in the story from beginning to end. After reading the other reviews I was afraid of what the narration with sound like. But I am happy that I listened to this book it was nearly impossible for me to stop listening. Bravo to both of the narration and the author.
