Kindle Edition, 84 pages
Published April 3rd 2015
Rina Zeret is not prepared to settle down. At least, not with a genetically selected mate. She wants true love and a happily ever after. Unfortunately, her mother has other ideas and submits Rina’s biological material—the woman’s a hairbrush thief!—to the Population Ministry to see if they can find a genetic match for her. Suddenly Rina is presented with Tave fa V’yl, Crown Prince of Ujal, High Warrior of the Ruling Caste and Earth’s greatest ally.
Her mother is going to be so happy.
TAVE is a three-part serial (like a TV show) and all parts are available now. The entire storyline is available for FREE with Kindle Unlimited, or you can purchase the full story as a bundle for $2.99.
There's certainly alot to love about the Ujal series. Told through various levels of humor, this story (much like the first) focuses on a male fully devoted to his honor as he strives to claim his destined mate. While predatory shifters may match the level of both possessive and protective traits, the Ujal's instincts come from a place of humility you'll not likely relate to the wolves or the cats or the bears. These mer(-like)men cater nicely to a woman's inner desire to be worshiped, nurtured, and just plain adored.
Tave wasn't looking for a mate but that doesn't keep his mother from seeking one out for him. The woman wants grand-hatchlings, damn it, and she's going to get them!
Rina's mother is probably the greater of the two evils as she forges her daughter's application into the database for those seeking to mate. Because that's how it's done these days. And Rina, in all her oblivious wonder, manages not to open a single letter notifying her of the match. It takes two royal guards showing up effectually unannounced to haul her away to the Ujal's royal house where her first introduction to his majesty is met with her justified bitchiness and Tave's 'She's damaged!' outcry.
Seriously, read it.
4 out of 5 stars.
