First, I'd like to remind you that this is an erotic book. Second, I'd like to mention that it is a menage, with M/F/M characters. For some, this may not be a good fit, so I wanted to put that out there before continuing. I typically do not read menages, nor do I read M/M erotica. However, with that being said, I truly enjoyed this book AND adored Fleur, Ari and Doral. This is far more than three people having sex, it is a story about duty, honor, love, magic and commitment.
So, now let's get to the story at hand. To begin with, we are far in to the future, with a solar date of 4633. We are on a magical planet called Verdantia, who can speak to her inhabitants with a special connection. I won't explain everything to you here because you need to read the story to better understand the situation.
What I truly loved about this story is that Fleur is a hell-cat that is not only determined to help her people, and do her duty, but she has an open heart and open mind for not only Ari, but Doral as well. Ari comes off being very harsh, not willing to go further than his duty, but ends up falling for Fleur. Doral, always popping up where least expected (he's a spy after all) add a mystique to his character, and although flawed and hurt in the past has a good heart.
Not only do the trio find a place with each other, but a purpose that is greater than any one person's role and they get a unique happily ever after. I truly enjoyed Ms. Knight's writing style, creativity and ability to express so much emotion.
In an intricate dance of friendship, erotic partnership and selfless love, three natives of the sentient planet Verdantia must come together in an extraordinary effort to save their world…and themselves.
With the lives of the people of the planet hanging in the balance, Verdantia calls three of her own to restore her power. The impossible but gorgeous Conte Camliel Aristos DeTano, the beautiful, innocent future queen Princess Fleur Constante, and the conte’s loyal aide, the angelically handsome yet emotionally-scarred Visconte Doral DeLorion, must fight their own personal demons and assimilate in a poly relationship, lest their planet be lost.
The attraction between the three is palpable and so strong it will either bind them together forever—and restore strength to the energy shield of their planet’s capital—or destroy each of them.
What ensues is a passionate journey that explores and tests trust, friendship and the true meaning of love.
