Destiny rewards those who embrace it.
Chris and his alien soul matches, Lasar and Nary, are ready to deepen their new bond as mates. It’s also time for Chris to begin his training as a Nasha, or sub, and for Nary to embrace his new role as Ahna, or Dom, to Chris. As three in the soul match, they are unique. Not only have Alasharians never matched with a human, they’ve never matched as three.
What makes them special also puts them in danger. The Supreme Healer warned Chris that many changes were ahead, ones even more startling than the original invasion. They must keep their match a secret until they know who they can trust.
As Ahna to both Nary and Chris, Lasar carries the responsibility of protecting his mates. A proud Alasharian warrior and commander, he’ll stop at nothing to keep them safe and to help Chris find his missing mother and sisters. To make sure that Chris’ cousin Morgan isn’t returned to the slave cages, he’s also arranged for a fellow commander to take Morgan into his care when he returns from battle.
Lasar and Nary are invited to a pleasure party by the Alasharian’s leader, the Nall, and are forced to bring Chris and Morgan. But a terrifying turn of events sets in motion what might be the beginning of the end for them all, unless they can resist the void.
I love it when series books pick right up where the others leave off, and Cherished by Two does exactly that. Book one, Slave for Two, left me with a huge need to know and, thankfully, Morticia Knight did not disappoint! Action and emotion paired together in a delicate balance that echoed the three-way relationship between Lasar, Nary, and Chris.
The alien culture creates a natural dynamic between the three because there was an inherent need in Lasar and Nary that gave them a role to fulfill. I think Nary probably had to make the biggest adjustment to keep the balance between submissive to Lasar and dominant to Nary, even though Chris is the one faced with learning an entirely new culture.
A culture that is in flux, with secrets that are polluting the ideals of a race who value honor… a search for Chris’ missing family… and an enigmatic religious leader whose advice rarely makes sense but they cannot ignore… This trio faces it all and more as the hits keep coming. As always, the many threads of the storyline keep me fascinated and reading frantically, my heart pounding as I tried to keep up. It was over just far too soon, so I can only hope there will be more.
