Goodness, sign me up. All three men provided Alea with something she vitally needed to help her heal and be whole. Raised with polyamorous relationships all around her, that isn’t what scared Alea. She doubted her own power as a sexually attractive woman and that was just sad. Dane, Coop and Landon were at times clumsy in their handling of her and others smooth as silk. Each had their strengths and weaknesses that endeared them to me as the story unfolded. This hot and spicy read may make you wonder why you are settling for just one man when you could have one for each facet of your personality.
The life of a princess is unicorns and rainbows, right? Not so much for Alea. Kidnapped and tortured she’s lost her confidence as a woman. While her captors were cruel they left her virginity which raises a host of questions after she is rescued. Her bodyguards, a part of her life for as long as she can remember, are also her secret desire. Her family history dictates she take multiple husbands, but her bodyguards aren’t of her country. And she seriously doubts they think of her that way anyway. Even her captors didn’t want her that way.
Dane, Cooper and Landon know what they want and fortunately they are in a country that doesn’t frown upon it. But how to make the leap from protector to provider? And what can they offer a princess? With danger looming still for Alea they must combat an unseen enemy, Alea’s insecurities and royal protocols. Add in Dane’s need for bondage, Landon’s insecurities about his intelligence and Cooper’s family back home and this is more complicated than it originally appears, and that’s pretty complicated. A good read that kept me on my toes, guessing until the big reveal, and thinking survival skills should be a must for all men.
A broken woman…
Alea Binte al Mussad, Princess of Bezakistan, was abducted from her university, mentally tortured and forced to witness the worst of humanity. She was rescued, but not before fear and her shattered soul made her retreat into herself.

Alea is comforted by the joyous family around her, but inside feels so alone—except when she’s with the steady trio of guards who relentlessly keep her safe. And tempt her with a passion she isn’t sure she’ll survive.
Three stalwart warriors determined to claim her…
Dane Mitchell, Cooper Evans, and Landon Nix wanted Alea from the moment they laid eyes on her. Held back by their duty and her fragility, they worship the Princess from afar, determined to claim her if the chance ever comes.

When they find themselves in paradise and all boundaries are stripped away, the ice begins to melt around Alea’s heart. But when reality comes crashing in, will she learn to accept love before a killer strikes again?
