Summary

He'll mark her flesh. She'll claim his heart.

Always the dutiful daughter, Lady Joselyn is weeks away from marrying a rival lord in order to save her house. However, she suddenly finds herself in the clutches of an ancient beast she’s only ever heard of in legends. More terrifying than that is the beast’s master, a wild man who insists Joselyn is his bride by right, and plans to seal his claim in blood.

Dragon-rider Hollen has finally captured the woman of his dreams, though he quickly learns waiting for her was less than half the battle. His new bride wants nothing to do with him, and Hollen knows he only has one chance to change her mind.

Their wills pitted against each other, Joselyn will go to any lengths to free herself from this savage and fulfill her marriage contract. Her father’s life depends upon it. To win her over, Hollen will do whatever he must, even if it means keeping secrets. Even as she plots her escape, Joselyn begins to wonder if one can also be bound by a duty to their own heart.

Includes "Sven the Collector", a bonus story from The Dokiri Brides series.

The narrator is amazing!

The narrator is amazing! I enjoyed this book, but hated when the author used the word 'lust' rather then desire. Also scringed when mentioning that the main character bled during her first sexual experience. Most girls hymens are gone by the time they reach adulthood regardless of sexual activity. It just seemed such an ignorant and old fashioned thing to mention. But otherwise a good story.

Really surprisingly good

It would be a lot better if it had a female narrator for the female POV, but still, it didn't stop the experience from being really good and fun. I would recommend to people that like this genre and it deserves a lot more recognition!

Shane East…

The chocolaty smoothness of Shane East is orgasmically addictive, the story is good too, but the narration makes it really special. So, the characters; Jocelyn is really annoying and hard to like and her storyline progresses a little too slowly at times, but eventually gets to the point. Overall I enjoyed the book, again, that voice…red wine, chocolate truffles and a rose scented bath good. Sigh…

a Great Romantic Adventure

I didn't hold much hope that this was going to be any good but it intrigued me enough to try, especially as it was part of the included catalogue. Firstly let me just say that Shane East was a brilliant choice for Narrator. The Nan has the Sexiest Viking Voice/Accent and might ge the sole reason I actually picked this up at all after listening to the sample.

The story follows and incredibly Sheltered and manipulated young woman that spent her entire life trying to do her Duty and please her father who is the the most Cold hearted, manipulative piece of Rubbish ever. When she is taken by Hollen, she fights tooth and nail to return to do her Duty. But when this Savage proves to be Kind, Honourable and loyal, and the Dokiri themselves warm and welcoming, she becomes conflicted.

A fade to black style romance that was beautifully told, and frankly carries you away on an epic adventure full of Fantasy thrills !

As for the book itself. What a pleasant surprise! Honestly! I wasn't sure about the kidnapped bride aspect... but as soon as you understand the world and the Dokiri, it made a while lot more sense. This Series mighty be Called The Dokiri Brides, but its about far more. its about a race of Warriors, protecting humanity from things that lurk in the Mountain. its about Family and yes about Love and honour and devotion.

Give it a try

Not the sort of book I would normally go for, but tried in the strength of previous reviews and was pleasantly surprised. This is a well paced book and I liked the extras at the end. The narration was very good too.

I listened to the others in the series and didn’t enjoy them quite as much, though the differing characters of each of the brides was well thought out and presented; I just got slightly annoyed that none of them had an actual good friend or beloved family member that they would miss to give some proper tension to the dynamic.

Overall, I would recommend this series. Enjoy!
