There's a foot-stamping princess who is coming into her powers, two studly, telepathic and magical twins, and a Cosmic Destiny to be fulfilled. And a sarcastic dragon who seems to have his own agenda. They must reunite her people [female sorceresses:] and their people [male wizards:] who haven't been together in a thousand years to recharge the magic balance of the lands. They're all for it, she's terrified after all the horror stories she's been told by her nurse.
The book is very short - 139 pages - and doesn't leave Lora Leigh room to do her usual in-depth job. A nice read though. And I love it that the wizards are always twinned - maybe there was a woman on the design team!
Wizard Twins: Menage a Magick
Wizard Twins: When Wizards Rule
This was a decently enough written romantica fantasy (cliches and all) but for $8+ it should've been way longer than 141 pages! I registered this at bookcrossing.com and it has bookcrossing labels inside and on cover.
For some reason it rests upon Brianna, the youngest of the three Princessess of Covenanti, to repair the rift between the Covenanani Sorceresses and their natural mates the Cauldaran Wizards. Her mother, the Queen, has surprisingly agreed to the alliance between Brianna and the two (yeah, you read that right) wizards Lasan & Drago (they're twins and in this world two parts of a whole and inseperable). Brianna, though attracted to the twins, is scared out of her silly little mind because her evil, maniacally cackling nurse tells her frightening tales of the twins. Brianna,being a naive and not-so-bright pretty young thing, believes every word though everything she's seen and experienced of the twins tells her differently. She fights the union, acts like a snotty brat and eventually submits to be the filling in the "Wizard Sandwich" (as the books back cover so tactfully puts it!)
2 1/2 stars is what I gave this. I did not like it but I didn't hate it either. It did take me 3 sitting to read it and I fell asleep during one of them. To me it was boring even the "erotic" parts were boring with a poorly developed story line and characters. I think I expected a lot more from this author.
WHAT THE BOOK WAS MEANT TO BE:
The magick of the world is dying. The only way to bring rejuvenation is to once again ally the Wizards of the Cauldaran and the Sorceresses of the Covenani. The Wizard Twins must claim their Sorceress mate. The Wizard Twins of House Veraga, Lasan and Drago, have found their mate, but have been unable to claim her due to her unreasonable fear of joining with the brothers. It seems there are more than mere maidenly fears at work here and the two men must figure out how to ease her into their life and their bed.
Princesses Brianna of House Sellane, the ruling family of the Covenani, is the chosen consort of Lasan and Drago, but due to the separation of the Wizards and Sorceresses she has heard horrible tales of the painful mating that Wizard Twins subject their consorts. She is fearful, and she is the most stubborn creature imaginable! She fights her attraction to both Twins, but soon realizes that her body and her power will not be denied.
Unfortunately, there are evil forces at work to prevent the alliance and rebalance of power and Brianna soon discovers that even her own house is no longer safe. With the emergence of her power soon at hand and the dangers surrounding her, Lasan and Drago have run out of time to persuade the little princess there will be no pain or harm to her as their consort, only incredible pleasure. In order for them to join as mates, the joining must take place at the moment her power emerges and that time is now.
Can Brianna overcome her lifelong fears of mating with Wizard Twins? Can Lasan and Drago keep the princess safe? And the other Wizard Twins? They must all claim their consorts to right the magick in the world. This is a time of great peril and only the strongest can rebuild all that was lost.
AND THE REALITY:
The princess was childish, spoiled, self centered brat with IQ well bellow freezing. The queen was too roughly sketched. The reasons behind what is and why are weak and unrealistic. There are dead ends not leading anywhere. The characters I liked (the twins and the dragon) are not much in attendance. I couldn't stand reading another feet stomping fit from the princess (50% of the book). The bad guys: the Seculars (the rebels) are also weakly sketched and we know nothing beyond: the great evil is affecting them. There are number of incidents where the Twins kill the attacking Seculars with their magic, ripping chests open and 'stuff' rolling out of them (in great detail). There is about 4 pages (total) of magic filled erotica that follows the 'ripping' at the very end of the book. I don't know how the other readers feel about that but 4 me blood and gore belong to books labeled Thriller or Horror. This is THE worst book I read from this author, and the second worst I ever read from Elora's publishing.
