Enthralled is the first book in Nadia Aidan's The Divine Series. Nadia easily drew me in from the beginning. The story was interesting and rich with emotion. I came to know many characters and very quickly. In many books when an author tries to put in a huge group of people it just does not work, but Ms. Aidan was able to do it beautifully. Along those same lines all the secondary characters were so interesting that I can't wait to read their stories. Enthralled was a wonderfully sexy glimpse into another world and how its people are dealing with the transition of war to peace, love and acceptance.
Strong willed and beautiful, Candace, Queen of the Amazonian planet Kush is used to fighting battles, giving orders and subservient men. From birth she is taught the art of war and that men are the enemy. What she hates more than a man is a domineering man!
With a body as powerful as a god's, the heir to the Akkadian throne is far from subservient. A man of honor, Ares is all masculine dominance!
When war tears their planets apart the two are faced with entering into a marriage contract in order to save their kingdoms and their people. Forced into a marriage neither wants, at every turn the two warriors clash as they battle for dominance. But what begins as a marriage of convenience quickly turns into something more as they fight their growing passion and hunger for each other. The ultimate challenge comes when they are forced to forsake their old beliefs for a chance at a future together. Can two fighting spirits learn the ultimate lesson of surrendering to their hearts?
