Book Description

Circe Quinn goes to sleep at home and wakes up in a corral filled with women wearing sacrificial virgin attire - and she is one of them. She soon finds out that she’s not having a wild dream, she’s living a frightening nightmare where she’s been transported to a barren land populated by a primitive people and in short order, she’s installed very unwillingly on her white throne of horns as their Queen.

Dax Lahn is the king of Suh Tunak, The Horde of the nation of Korwahk and with one look at Circe, he knows she will be his bride and together they will start The Golden Dynasty of legend.

Circe and Lahn are separated by language, culture and the small fact she’s from a parallel universe and has no idea how she got there or how to get home. But facing challenge after challenge, Circe finds her footing as Queen of the brutal Korwahk Horde and wife to its King, then she makes friends then she finds herself falling in love with this primitive land, its people and especially their savage leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite KA Yet But Warnable May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book, no less than what I expected from KA. Kept true to her sweet, hot Mega-Alpha male heroes, and Lahn was above and beyond, probably due to the savage aspect. Circe was a good lead, she was a little foolish, but I loved her spirit and the whole Tigress thing. There was a good amount of laughter considering the possible dark tone of the book. I also loved the beginning when she started to get to know Lahn, it was really sweet, he was sweet, with the seduction and not understanding and repeating her phrases, I especially loved the "I don't understand you baby", really sweet(Ps I'm going to be saying that a lot :D). I always love the beginnings of romances, watching, waiting for, seeing and feeling the characters fall in love is amazing. It was especially nice here, with how it started, the fact that it changed for the better, and how, with his attentiveness, his words... I loved the piggyback scene, again sweet, romantic... I think you get the gist :D I LOVED scene with the "Nahna" and "Kahna"s you just melt, nothing else for it, or to say totally swoon and every good description you can think of, romantic, sweet, possessive, love. And need I mention the river bank scene, again nothing else to say, their first admission of love, it was everything it should be, I wanted, needed and expected. Totally made up for what I felt was a lacking first kiss cause she gave in so easily and was half asleep, not as romantic as a fight, or in the midst of passion and having her CONSCIOUS. I wanted her to choose it but oh well. But his first kiss to her was really sweet, another favorite part. The magic was cool too. Oh and the Fauna thing, immediate, constant and apparently rare among all other warriors, so Sweet! Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings January 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
*Spoilers throughout*

Circe is not having a good day when she suddenly wakes up, no longer in her nice comfy bed in Seattle, but in a strange land where no almost one speaks her language and before she really even processes what is going on she is hunted down and raped by the man who just became her husband.

It's been a long time I have been so conflicted about writing a review for a book because the book is for the most part quite entertaining, but there are so many flaws that I can't in good conscious recommend it. At first I was really intrigued about this new world and these warriors Circe meets, espeically her husband, Lahn, and also about what exactly the golden dynasty is and what importance it has. But the problem is that the writing is so stilted, with pages and pages going to describe Circe's outfits, hair, jewelry, and sex life in detail that much of the "meat of the story" is glossed over. Her husband hits her, rapes her 7 times, if I remember correctly, and imprisons her and I won't even get into his questionable fidelity (although he is faithful after she makes a point of it before that he may or maybe not have gone to the communal slave-whores), but these things are described with about as much detail as you would tell a stranger about a trip to the gynecologist. It is all glossed over and all we ever see of his is this perfect man. The story has so many dark and serious issues and none of them are seriously talked about or addressed, except with the other wives giving Circe hints about how to keep her husband from raping other women by wearing him down sexually and to understand that he only hit you because he was really angry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time travel, an alpha and a great HEA... February 16, 2012
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great KA read. Fantasy series this time. This bk had way too many positive reviews posted as well as friend rec's to pass up. Circe wakes up in a nightmare in an extremely barbaric parallel universe. Talk about culture shock, not your typical KA read. Despite the story's cruel brutality it still remains a love story. I still can't get over how much I liked this bk despite lots of cringing. Even the language barrier didn't discourage me though I did give up trying to remember what different words and phrases meant and just went with the story. Most was translated either by a character, the author or just by action enough that it wasn't off putting. King Lhan is larger than life, violent, handsome, hot, sexy and totally alpha but as with most all of KA's heroes it was the big guys' sweetness to Circe that that totally captured me. I was so sucked in by the twist and turns and a few surprises that I was extremely anxious near the end. A few of the scenarios I guessed at earlier as something that may happen - and they did, but that didn't take away from the story. I know this review doesn't do the bk justice so all I can say is READ THIS BK. Giving it a 4 star instead of 5 simply because I didn't care for the extreme violence against women. On a more superficial level I wasn't a fan of the H/h short separation. Thankfully KA's separations are brief in terms of pages and always end with a great HEA.

1.0 out of 5 stars This just sickened me. June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
never met a KA book I didn't love. Until now. I'm sorry I can't condone this book to be okay. it wasn't. it wasn't sweet or cute. just because this dude could be sweet sometimes she forgives him? This poor girl has Stockholm syndrome.
1: She has to get out of bed and be okay or they will kill her rapist and she will be passed around?
2: she forgives her rapist and has to twist it around in her head to make the abuse tolerable?
3: it's okay for him to strike her and she forgives him? ( again Stockholm syndrome.)
4: he basically kidnapped her from her world and bound her to him. but, also made it so he could find her anywhere. she can never escape him. This was not a love story. as a survivor of rape and abuse this is beyond reprehensible. This is the only K A book I've ever actually hated and will NEVER re-read. as a KA fan I will continue this series and chalk this book up to a very bad experience.
But, I cannot recommend this book. at times this book made me feel physically ill, and gave me a nightmare.

More About the Author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
