When is a Dom not a Dom? When it stops him from being with the man he loves…
Athol Donaldson lost many people in his life, his lover, his family, his twin. The latter loss seems hardly worth morning over. Affric caused nothing but trouble when alive, and now, he seems intent on causing trouble from beyond the grave.
It forces Athol to seek out the one man he's never forgotten.
Eden Murdoch has no intention of letting Athol slip through his fingers again. He's lost him once, and as they're forced to pull together to unravel the mystery surrounding the parentage of a teenage girl, their love for each other blossoms.
Surely, being Doms doesn't mean they can't compromise? Will they be able to work out their differences, and find lasting happiness, or will this blast from the past prove to be their final undoing?
Review by Brittany
This book follows Athol Donaldson and Edan Murdoch. The two are past lovers reigniting the spark after quite a while.
That’s really all I can tell you without giving the book away. There wasn’t much plot to this, which was disappointing, and at the end, the resolution kind of disappointed me.
I am once again disappointed with Raven McAllen. Now, I don’t want to sound mean, I’m just being honest.
Thank goodness this book chilled on the big words. There were only a few I didn’t know this time. There were also some sex scenes, which I would expect from this type of book. The first book, Master, had two very disappointing scenes in it, so the two or three in this one were a big improvement.
I’m just disappointed with the plot. I also couldn’t tell half the time what was going on. It was just overall confusing. The story line didn’t really flow all that well.
Overall, I give this book 3.5 stars. While it is an improvement over the first book in the Domissima series, it still wasn’t all that great.
About Raven McAllan
Raven lives in Scotland, along with her husband and their two cats (sadly now one cat, Jazz was put out of her pain in December. Smudge now thinks he should have twice as much of everything) —their children having flown the nest—surrounded by beautiful scenery, which inspires a lot of the settings in her books.
She is used to sharing her life with the occasional deer, red squirrel, and lost tourist, to say nothing of the scourge of Scotland—the midge.
A lover of reading, she appreciates the history inside a book, and the chance to peek into the lives of those from years ago. Raven admits that she enjoys the research for her books almost as much as the writing; so much so, that sometimes she realizes she's strayed way past the information she needs to know, and not a paragraph has been added to her WIP.
