Princess Breena had been dreaming of her warrior lover when she was ripped from her Elden castle and thrown into a strange, dangerous realm. Lost and alone, she prayed for survival and vengeance for her stolen kingdom. She found both in a woodland cottage…in a dark bear of a man.The golden-haired beauty had eaten his food and slept in his bed when Osborn found her. Though he wanted to awaken his virgin princess to carnal pleasures, Breena wanted more—including his warrior skills. Skills the once-legendary mercenary had long buried. Now Osborn had a choice—risk his life or deny his princess her fairy-tale ending.


This was a great follow up to the first book, Lord of the Vampires, but it can also be read on its own as well. The first book followed Nicolai and his struggle with the aftermath of the blood sorcerer taking over the Kingdom of Elden but this one is all about Breena. It starts off with the night that the castle was attacked, so the author catches you up to speed with what is going on.

Breena has the ability to put herself into dreams with her warrior Osborn. When her kingdom is attacked and she is magically sent away by her parents, she ends up stumbling into a cottage in the middle of the woods. Little does she know that the cottage actually belongs to her warrior and his two brothers. She eats their food, accidentally breaks one of their kitchen chairs and passes out on one of the three beds (remind you of anything?). Which is exactly how Osborn and his two brothers find her… the girl from his dreams, passed out on his bed with the kitchen a mess.

I like how this story flows nicely with the first book in the series but it isn’t so similar in writing style that it seems like the same characters. I think that having different authors write the siblings story is a great idea.

“She deserved a better man than he was. Someone more honorable. She deserved more, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t fight or kill to keep her at his side. Osborn wasn’t an idiot.”
