About the Author
Charlotte Boyett-Compo, known as Charlee to her many readers, is the author of over fifty books, the first nine of which are the WindLegends Saga which began with WINDKEEPER. Married 40 years to her high school sweetheart, Tom, she is the mother of two grown sons, Pete and Mike, and the proud grandmother of Preston Alexander and Victoria Ashley. She is the willing houseslave to five demanding felines who are holding her hostage in her home and only allowing her to leave in order to purchase food for them. A native of Sarasota, Florida, she was adopted at birth and grew up in Colquitt and Albany, Georgia and now lives in the Midwest. She has traveled extensively with her retired military weatherman husband affectionately known to her fans as Buddha Belly and has lived in South Carolina, Illinois, Nebraska, and New York. Her hobbies include reading, collecting Anubis, gargoyle and grim reaper figurines, and listening to rousing Celtic music. Her favorite color is green, her favorite perfume is gardenia, and her favorite snack is hot salsa with tortilla chips and a Cherry Pepsi. She never misses the literary works of John Sandford, Brian Lumley, Dean Koontz, and David Wiltse and is deeply, passionately in love with the movies of Gerard Butler for whom she s written several novels. Her favorite movie of all time is THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and her favorite book is SWEET, SAVAGE LOVE by Rosemary Rogers. She never misses an episode of NIP/TUCK or LOST and if there s a Stephen King novel on TV, she s there!

A little more than halfway through the book, a paranormal element was introduced that seemed to come from completely out of left field. What was strange was that the Conclave Brothers were well aware this paranormal element existed, but unless I somehow missed it, there had been no mention of it earlier in the book. Jameela also suddenly exhibits psychic abilities, which also seemed to come from out for nowhere. When she started to give the expert warriors of the Conclave strategic military advice, (and they listened!) it was all becoming increasingly hard to swallow.
As another reviewer wrote, the purpose of the Conclave, and in particular, the sex auditions, is not clear. The opening sex scene was very hot, but served no other purpose than titillation. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes the story unnecessarily confusing.
While I thought this book was just OK, I honestly think it may be worth buying just for that opening sex scene. It was just ridiculously hot, and I'd never read anything like it.
BTW - Am I the only one who did not know what "Sirroco"? is? I looked it up - it's a hot, oppressive wind. And that ends the vocabulary lesson of the day! :)
After her brothers sold her into slavery, Jameela resigned herself to an existence of backbreaking work or exacting degradation and the readers can’t help but be fascinated by Dagan and Jameela’s passionate story as sheer evil stalks the land and Dagan learns just what depth he will go to keep her at his side. The chemistry is sizzling, the romance is sweet and the love is downright fierce despite the situation and secrets. The emotional turmoil holds readers in its grasp as it flows from the pages and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot captivates readers with lots of suspense, excitement and romance.
Scorching intimate scenes builds lots heat throughout the story while anticipation and suspense build in relation to this doomed romance as readers wonder just how they will overcome Jameela’s role in the conclave and adrenaline pumping excitement builds when evil stalks the land and forever alters their lives while unexpected twists keeping everyone on their toes. The well written scenes are full of vivid details that easily transports the readers to another world while the intriguing events hold them hostage.
The Windlegends universe is such a complex and fascinating world that kind of has a historical and futuristic mixed feel that really adds to the story, all the interesting elements and compelling characters come together in this world in such a way that readers never have a chance to become board because they are too busy discovering something new.
