Against his will, Lord Tian has fallen for a magical land creature–a gnome. A prophecy says he must wed a land creature and become a destroyer and spy. But he can’t resist Alastair or the BDSM games they play.
Alastair is trying to spy on Tian’s mother and preserve the balance of the natural world. Needing Tian in his bed and in his heart does nothing but disrupt his plans.
After reading book 1 in the series, I quickly started this book. I was excited to see what was going to happen with the second brother.
I did like the BDSM aspect of the story. It added a bit that made it different from the previous book. I really liked Alastair’s character, but Tian wasn’t my favorite. Not sure why but I just wasn’t able to connect with him easily.
The story did stand on it’s own and I did enjoy it. I would say that if you like books with a bit of paranormal in them, and with some twists and turns like this book had, then I’d check out this series.
Also, while this is the second book in the series, I do think that it could be read as a standalone.
