Daryk Hunter, Daryk World, Book One
Denise A. Agnew
Genre: Fantasy /Romance
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
What I liked: Agnew is one of my favorite authors. There is just something about the way she writes worlds, characters, and even dialogue that just draws you into a book and never wants to let you out. This story starts off with Ketera’s fathers is imprisoned and being the great daughter she is, she is bound to go set him free no matter the cost. Before she can save her father, her ship crashes and she is then in the arms, Dane who swears to protect her from the savage people that lurk to claim her. Dane also finds a desire of his own for Ketera and wants to show her himself the pleasures of his company. Agnew brought the story of these two wonderful characters together by showing the reader that although these two characters come from different worlds, there is a common ground and a lot of misconceptions. From all of these spring love, affection, and an understanding between the two characters. It’s sure to be an amazing series to read and I look forward to the next installment.
When Magonian archaeologist Ketera Aldrancos’ father is imprisoned, she’s determined to save him. Before she can do so, her ship is wrecked. Water laps at her, a man’s strong arms surround her. His husky voice soothes her. Then she realizes she’s on a foreign beach in the arms of a dreaded Dragonian. A man who looks nothing like the men she’s known. His closeness, his touch sends waves of need through Ketera’s core and shame runs through her. After all, passions are sinful.
Dane Charger, a Dragonian Daryk One, cradles the woman in his arms. He aches to introduce her to the headiest lovemaking imaginable. But his eyes flame red and a growl vibrates his throat when he realizes he’ll need to protect her from marauding slave traders led by a vicious rogue—who just happens to also be his half brother.
Two people whose supercontinents are separated by ocean and two thousand years of prejudice and fear. Two people who may be the secret to saving a race from extinction.
