Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5
If anyone had a past it was Helene. Devlin’s isn’t much better. Both Devlin and Helene’s lives intertwine, from the past to the present. With such a tragic history between them we have to wonder if they will have a future. You have to love the setting and story line, and lose yourself in the characters.
The story leads you on an emotional rollercoaster, but it is well worth the ride. As Helene and Devlin get older their past is ever present, but Devlin works at gaining what he desires. Devlin fed into Helene’s needs giving her what she wanted. Sex is here, often and hot, well written and intense. Orgasm denial is included and so not fair! Devlin pushes Helene taking her just to a point. He is a Dom and is good at that. She is more submissive than she even knew.
The intrigue mixed with magic keeps you anxiously reading, portals, magic books, amulets and spells. A world that is within the “normal” world.
Ms. Simone, thank you! An awesome series I loved and would recommend it to anyone.
