CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! On the world of Merab, the women rule while the men have the magic. It has been that way for centuries and was equal for both sexes…until now. Now resistance by the men is common as they rebel against the corrupt queens.
Crown princess of Zirah, Nuriel, knows firsthand how the rebels are after being kidnapped and tortured by them. Now on her journey to find her four consorts, she still has nightmares of her ordeal. Her first consort, Ze’ev, The Wolf Lord, has given her protection and a growing love blooms between them. Now she is in the feline lands, searching for her next consort and in a matter of minutes finds him in Kefir, Cougar Lord. There is something about him that gives her joy, something that is lacking lately in her life amid of rebel plots that haunt her every step.
Now the danger is looming closer as Nuriel tries to reach out for the happiness she craves with Ze’ev and Kefir. Can she face her fears in order to grasp her happily ever after? Or will the feline lands as well as Zirah fall into chaos?
I love this series with a passion. The sheer sensual delight amid the pages leaves the reader wanting more. Author Violet Summers delivers a stirring, emotional story that will leave you breathless as Nuriel faces her fears in the feline lands and also finds a passion worth fighting for. The writing is tight, characters well written and multi-dimensional and the searing passion between Nuriel, Ze’ev and Kefir is very hot. The reader can feel the emotional connection Nuriel and Ze’ev have and the beginning of her bond with Kefir in the story. What I love about this author’s work is how enjoyable and life like the characters are. The characters face issues we all deal with in real life and the author does a wonderful job in keeping the characters sympathetic-even the bad guys, which is a nice change of pace for me. Normally I can’t stand the bad guys in a story but the author is able to give these guys a sympathetic voice even amid the rebellion.
Violet Summers delivers a passionate tale of three people finding love amid danger that stalks them at every step. With the perfect balance of storyline and sexual tension, NURIEL’S COUGAR delivers another home run for this author. I can’t wait to see what is in store for Nuriel and her consorts next. I just hope I won’t have to wait too long.
If you enjoy an emotional, passion filled story with characters that steal your heart, then grab the Queens of Merab series and settle in for hours of reading enjoyment.
