Regina is a woman who has lived a solitary life since her husband passed away four years ago, but when she’s unexceptionally dropped in a jungle with about eight handsome men ready to show her that no woman should be lonely.
Will she be able to find her next true love again?
I’ll admit I thought this story would be a ménage, but the further I read the story actually reminded me of a show called “The Bachelorette”. However; that being the case I still enjoyed the romance of each male that was presented. Ms. Lavere did a wonderful job portraying the different types of them in this tribe and how Regina felt about each one. Including the emotional toll and journey she was going.

Review by Raychel
The Wikomsette is a term used to describe a woman who takes on a tribe of husbands. Our main character wakes up one morning, four years after the death of her husband and the miscarriage of their child, to a day that promises to be like all of them before it. Lonely, boring and mundane. She gets up ready to go teach her Pilates class and drops her keys. When she reaches down to retrieve them, she's tumbling, but not down the driveway or a hill, but through space. Where does she land? In a jungle. The when and how are yet to be determined but what she finds is a tribe of eight men, all handsome in their own way, all looking at her to become The Wikomsette they were promised.
Of course, Regina didn't sign up to be anyone's anything. She was content leading her life, existing. She didn't realize how lonely she was until she's swept up in the arms of Niku, the tribe's leader, and whisked once again off to an underground chamber that will serve temporarily as a room to "service" her tribe. She's surprisingly aroused by the thought and act of what they want and take from her body. After the first three encounters, she starts to get answers as to the who, what, when and why of what is happening to her. But answers are slow coming for sure.
The tribe at first does not speak English, but quickly adapt, leaving Regina to believe they are aliens from outer space, but I assure you they are not. The erotic elements for me could have been more sexual and perhaps scenes could have been longer but hang on for book 2 for that if heat is what you're looking for! Seven of the eight men are quite lovely and I found myself about half way through the story creating emotional attachments to at least a few of them and their well being. By the end, I was sufficiently wrapped up in the world that Emerald Lavere has created for her readers, so much so that I ugly cried when it was time for Regina to return to her world, unable to take her tribe with her.
I don't want to ruin any of the key elements and twists in this story so I'll leave you with this. Emerald Lavere has an incredible voice and is a wonderful story teller. There are no aliens to be had here. She uses historical figures to further her plot and does it well. I had a hard time getting into the story for the first 10% or so but after that, I felt like I was flying through the novel, wanting to slow down but needing to know what happens next. I very much recommend this story even if you're not a huge Fantasy reader, I believe this will still be right up your ally.
