After the death of their parents, Lothar and Telfor must protect the pureness of their familial line. But, it’s hard to ignore the strong heat/sex scent a witch is broadcasting. Lothar goes to investigate and the Witch named Jesse invites him in to help her take the “edge off”.

Unfortunately, the first sex scene leaves a lot to be desired. More technical than sensual or sexy, it’s not the kind of thing that makes me want to continue reading. During their romp, Lothar has to remove a stick in his ass! (Why? Was that part really necessary?). The sex was a failure and so he goes home and leave the Jesse still needing to be satisfied.

The sex scenes do get better and the rest of the story gets good. It’s a quick read with suspense, clan history, and brotherly love woven throughout. I hope this isn’t the only one and the author makes it into a series. I really want to know what happens with Jesse and Lothar.
