Mel Sterling opens Ironbound with a line spoken by Hunter from the end of Trueheart: “Come to bed, or come to war. It makes no difference, but no longer shall you rule me.” Doesn’t that just give you the shivers?
The story picks up where Trueheart left off so there is no time gap between books. We’re getting right into the action. Now free of the Queen’s control, Hunter takes charge while she is weakened and gathers the fae, bringing them to the safety of his mountain. Here you see this new side of Hunter, a more caring side. He really does care about his people, but he’s still not one to cross.
On their way to the mountain, Dragger (the nasty kelpie — and these guys really are nasty) picks up a human woman who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time – Dove aka Sparks. At first, she is believed to be the Queen’s spy, but she slowly becomes something much more. An irresistible temptation. Not only does Hunter want her for her skill as a blacksmith, he wants the woman, too.
Their interactions are so…damn…hot. Mel Sterling doesn’t get explicit, but she sure knows how to turn up the heat and build sexual tension. And theirs was through the roof! Who knew eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches could be so dang sexy?
“You are human. And I do want you. Invite me to your bed, mistress of cold iron.”
We also get scenes from Thomas and Tess. Their story wasn’t quite complete, so we get a satisfying HEA for those two. They so deserved one. Red Tod (A Red Cap), Sharpwit, and Torchy (a will-o-wisp) get some ‘screen’ time. I really enjoyed these characters. (Oh Torchy!)
Mel Sterling has built an amazing, magical world. Ironbound is beautifully written and a complete page-turner. Highly recommend this book! I loved every bit of it.
