And one aspect I appreciate the author doing is not making the "powerful alpha male" an abusive butt (would have asked for a refund otherwise).
The only thing I ask the author to do is to fix the damn grammatical errors. There wasn't too many of them, but enough for it to distract from the story. You would think that with the whole collection, she'd go back and do so, but sadly, no. And what's with all the adverbs?! There are better ways of writing without the unnecessary adverbs. It's a rather amateur-ish written story, even if I enjoyed reading the premise.
A couple of items - this bundle was published as four individual books. Because of that, there is a segmented feel to the story, which caused the story to suffer somewhat. In addition, the book's pacing is off. As the story begins, we see Emily minute by minute, day by day, but as the story continues entire years are skipped in a very abrupt fashion, which actually was very disappointing. It reminded me of scratched records on the old phonographs - when you would set the needle down, it would play beautiful music, until it hit a scratch and jumped clear to another spot in the same album. This story was exactly like that. One minute Emily is a very young mother holding an infant, and the next moment the child is 12 years old.
As one reviewer stated, there was too much sex. The sex scenes were beautifully done, but the story would have been better if the author had expanded on the magic of the Elven world, more court politics and more things happening to Emily to round her out as a central character. Scenes where magic were used would have been better if more detail and explanation had been given. In addition, we know that enemies died, but it would greatly have improved the story if those scenes would have been included instead of ...well, she's dead. Some more communication between the Elven King and Emily would have been great too. As it was, Emily was constantly guessing about his thoughts and actions, even though she was suppose to be bound to him.
I know after reading all of that, you probably wonder if I liked the book at all...I did. In fact, I found the story fascinating. The writing was gorgeous and book held my attention completely to the end. I just wish the author would have filled in some vital areas to make this an unforgettable read.
Only thing is that there are quite a few really graphic sex scenes that push this to erotica in places and really don't add anything to the book so I skimmed passed them.

Now, I'm eagerly waiting for
the continuation of the son's ( Thyland and Mia).
I'm not normally into elf stories at all but Cristina changed my mind on that ;)
