The Demon’s Blood
When Simeon, a mountain lion shifter meets Asher, a blood demon, there is instant attraction. But, how can they act on the way they feel when there is an entire kingdom at stake.
The Incubus Agenda
Nicholas Tarrant has worked hard for his position on the Werewolf Coalition. Having access to whatever is happening inside the Coalition is important to the Underground and he’s good at blending in.
Brody Lennox is sent to Glitnir to broker talks of peace but is dragged broken and bloody into the Council chambers. Ludvik wants him killed as a traitor.
Can Nicholas save Brody? Or is Brody too broken to be saved?
The Third Kingdom
The story that began as a simple Retriever case, has become the tale of the fight against a thousand years of evil.
The wolf shifters have Niceros to take down. The Vampire Twins have to deal with Cassius. The Second Kingdom is in disarray and Simeon, Asher and Phin are desperate to calm the unrest.
An alpha needs to accept his role, a blood demon has to become the King he was meant to be, and the Vampire twins have to end the war.
Against all this, Reuben and Ethan, lovers separated for a millennium, are thrown back in to a war to end the poison that is Ludvik Peitrol.
In a battle on the barren fields of Arberfan is where this story will end.
Book 2 in the Kingdom Series is another 3 stories that pick up from Volume 1 and continue on with the paranormal beings fight for freedom and equality. Once again we meet three more couples who find love even in the dark times they are living through and RJ continues to build her world and weave the story through to its conclusion. You must read Volume 1 for this book to make any sense.
So, realistically you would think that a blood demon would not instantly be one of your favourite characters but Asher is actually very sweet. Not acknowledged by all of his family Asher has a big role to play in ending the tyranny that the paranormal society are being forced to put up with and he could do no better than to have a feisty mountain lion by his side. Simeon is perfect for Asher and each man has a lot to bring to the story with what they can do to aid their friends.
Our next couple is Nick and Brody and this couple get to see the evil that is Ludvik and his cronies up close and personal. Sent as an envoy to discuss peace Brody finds himself pulled into a madman’s fantasy. Living will depend on werewolf Nick and his ability to rescue and heal the man who he is destined to spend the rest of his life with.
The final couple are two old souls who have been tied to the fight for freedom for over a thousand years. I told you back in the first story of volume 1 that things were not always as they seemed and that is never clearer than here when we meet Methulan who is and has been in love with Reuben forever. The vampire twins must rise up along with their allies to finally extinguish the evil.
This ending was definitely a bit sad and I was sorry to see the story finish.
