On the world of Mareb, the women are the rulers while the men handle the magic and all was fine until the day Temair, Crown Princess to the kingdom of Emetra finds herself thrust in the role of Queen to be and sent on the tour of Queendom for her four consorts. In the first kingdom, the Fyre Lands, she finds herself drawn to the oldest son, Micah, sexy but so stern. When Temair is attacked, Micah comes to her rescue and soon both find the fire that rages between them almost too hot to handle. A secret rebellion is brewing and together Micah and Temair must forge a bond strong enough to withstand the threats because without both Emetra and Mareb adoomed.

THE QUEENS OF MAREB 1: TEMAIR’S FYRE is one hot, sexy read from author Violet Summers. I read this within a few hours and found myself having to grab the second book immediately to see what happens next for Temair, Micah and her search for her consorts. Tight writing, fast paced storyline and some amazingly wonderful characters that light up the pages keep TEMAIR’S FYRE moving along nicely. I love the premise of this series and the first book introduces you to the world of Mareb and the people who live there. Ms. Summers is a “new to me” author and this story just makes me want to check out her backlist for more of her books.

Meet Temair, the Crown Princess in the kingdom of Emetra. When she finds herself thrust into the role of Queen-to-be, Temair finds herself on a journey that will test her in ways she never knew. Shy around men, inexperienced and determined to make her family proud, Temair finds her first consort in the Fyre Lands in Micah, oldest prince of the ruling house. Stern, sexy and just a little bit dangerous, he calls to Temair’s heart and soon both are married. Now the real work begins as an attack on Temair finds herself dealing not just her newfound feelings for Micah but a rebellion is brewing and both Micah and Temair must trust in themselves and each other in order to root out the plotters and save their kingdom. I love Temair. She is book smart, inexperienced around men and just a little frightened by the changes in her life recently. A contradiction and quite a delight to read; She is no wilting violet either. Strong, feisty and determined, Ms. Summers creates the perfect heroine to stand up to her first husband, Micah. Now here is one sexy Prince. I was practically drooling over him when he stepped upon the page and when these two met; sparks flew so fast, I was afraid the computer would combust. Some wonderful secondary characters made me smile as well as wonder if they will play a part in future books.
Ms. Summers delivers a wonderful introduction to a new series that will leave you breathless and ready to jump your significant other. With some intriguing characters, bone melting sex scenes and the hint of a mystery, this author keeps the reader glued to the edge of their seat as they flip the pages to see what happens next. If you want a new series to enjoy then grab THE QUEENS OF MAREB 1: TEMAIR’S FYRE and settle in for one hot ride. Just make sure to keep a fan handy or your significant other nearby in order to cool down after reading this book. I look forward to the next book in the series, Temair’s Rayne. Run to grab the introduction to Mareb and this breathtaking new world.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
