A Dark Shifter Alpha…
Dion, alpha of a clan of river shapeshifters, has had enough. The sun fae queen has seduced many of his best warriors, leaving them fit for little but fishing and drinking wine, and draining life-energy from all his clan in the process. Then comes the final straw—she works her wiles on his youngest brother. It’s time to turn the tables on the shallow, pleasure-loving queen.
A Jaded Fae Queen…
Cleia is a two-hundred-year-old fae whose powerful glamour gets her any man she wants. But she’s bored. She wants something more—and the river fada men have it. So when she meets the big, untamed river shifter, she sets out to seduce him, even though something in her warns this man is dangerous.
She all but orders him to her bed.
That’s just what Dion is counting on…
SEDUCING THE SUN FAE is a full-length paranormal romance novel, free of cliffhangers, with an HEA. For readers 18+ only.
I knew from the description that I was going to love this novel, and I wasn’t wrong. I love reading stories about faes so I was immediately attracted to the fantasy of the story. What I wasn’t expecting was how hot this story was! I actually had to walk away a couple times to catch my breath before I could return. Normally, I don’t like dialogue during my erotic scenes. More often then not, it sounds cheesy and silly. Rivard has a talent with writing such dialogue without taking away from the heat of the scene. In all honestly, it made them even hotter.
It wasn’t all about the sex, however. The author created a fantastical world filled interesting creatures. I can’t wait to read more stories to learn more about her mystical races. Not only that, but she did a great job of adding meat to the story, creating a cornucopia of characters whose stories intertwine. I found myself wondering about certain characters and hoping she continues their stories in the next novel.
The only true issue I had with this novel was how stubborn Dion was. I guess if I look from his point of view, I would understand. I wonder if the author gritted her teeth while she wrote him being so bullheaded. I know I would have.
This story could have gone wrong so very easily. I have read it countless times before. Rivard knew what she was doing and expertly wove a story of love, sacrifice, and fantasy. I will definitely be continuing the series.
