The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland #2) by Kristen Ashley

Silvana's Review

Circe Quinn goes to sleep at home and wakes up in a corral filled with women wearing sacrificial virgin attire – and she is one of them. She soon finds out that she’s not having a wild dream, she’s living a frightening nightmare where she’s been transported to a barren land populated by a primitive people and in short order, she’s installed very unwillingly on her white throne of horns as their Queen.

Dax Lahn is the king of Suh Tunak, The Horde of the nation of Korwahk and with one look at Circe, he knows she will be his bride and together they will start The Golden Dynasty of legend.

Circe and Lahn are separated by language, culture and the small fact she’s from a parallel universe and has no idea how she got there or how to get home. But facing challenge after challenge, Circe finds her footing as Queen of the brutal Korwahk Horde and wife to its King, then she makes friends then she finds herself falling in love with this primitive land, its people and especially their savage leader

~*~*~*~REVIEW~*~*~*~

I really do not read fantasy, Really don’t but this series sucked me in and book 2 proved to be everything I want in a book, seriously one of my favorite reads!

I never really understood why KA’s books seemed like a rite of passage for most readers, I read a few of them  when I needed a light read but never did get the adulation,  now I do. I am now on a quest to read every book she wrote or will write!

Circe wakes up to the worst living nightmare in a place so different and a life that is nothing like she has ever seen or lived  in Seattle- Being paraded in a WIFE HUNT, she gets chosen By Dax Lahn and so their story begins. The book did not lag, it was fast paced, at times uncomfortable to read. It portrayed a savage land and a savage life but it was a gorgeous one as well where our two main protagonists  manage to find a rainbow but not till after much struggle. Their connection was amazing and they gave up so much to be with each other.

Dax Lahn is one of the sweetest heroes and at the same times an alpha, strong and basically manages to be an asshole at times! He made so many concessions to be the man for Circe but does screw up from time to time. I loved how words in a made-up language sounded  hot when he was whispering them To Circe!

Circe was a pleasure to read, loved how when Dax screwed up, she did not forgive him easily! She had to overcome a lot, whether the language barrier, the harsh living conditions as well as the different traditions.  She managed to do so beautifully and in the process fell in love with the land, the people and their leader!

Circe : “Lahn told me that when he claimed me, even in the moonlight, he saw my spirit shining in my eyes and it was the most beautiful thing he’d ever seen. To me, he was raping me. To him, he was receiving a gift he’d treasure always. This is a contradiction that it is difficult to come to terms with and although it does not heal the pain we felt, a memory seared into our brains, the terror we experienced, I cannot say it does not provide just enough balm to allow me to live with it.”

This book was a great escape,  I am falling in love with the whole series. Hoping the next two books are just as awesome as this one.

~*~*~*~ABOUT KRISTEN ASHELY~*~*~*~
Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Rock Chick Revolution (Rock Chick #8) by Kristen Ashley

15752757

Ally Nightingale has secrets. Secrets she doesn’t even share with the Rock Chicks. But two men know what she’s up to. One has her back. The other has her heart, but he doesn’t know it.

As Ally rewinds the last year of her life, she knows two things. One, she’s never going to get what every Rock Chick should have—her own Hot Bunch guy. And two, she’s a Nightingale through and through. She just isn’t sure what to do about that.

But as her secrets are revealed, the men in her life react. Darius Tucker, a lifelong friend, as usual takes her back. Ren Zano, the man she loves, isn’t quite so sure. The Rock Chicks, Hot Bunch and the entire gang at Fortnum’s weigh in, and a Rock Chick Revolution starts brewing.

It’s up to Ally to control it and prove what she knows down to her bones.

She’s a Rock Chick, she deserves her hot guy and she’s going to keep the one she wants…

Because she’s a Nightingale

This is a hard review for me! This! This is the end of an era, the end of something so awesome, so amazing that I shed tears that this was ending! This is 1 of my most anticipated books of 2013! REN AND ALLY!

But 1 could ask is it the END? Kristen Ashley I know that you want to give me Darius! I know you do! Cause I don’t think your world or MINE will be complete without Darius’ HEA. Right???? Cause that would be so RIGHTEOUS

I am truly a Rock Chick in heart! And seriously through 8 books I totally ROCKED ON

KA you didn’t disappoint to bring the action! More house bombs, more Rock Chick Pow Wows! Daisy, Todd, Smithy, the strip joint

Also, the family connection. The love, the tightness, the amazing connection between brothers and sisters, BFF’s and total 100% LOVE

And my fav’s! Hector, Vance and Mace…. Jesus! We are adding Ren to the # 1 SPOT!

Ren is AMAZING! He is the best badboy in the HOT BUNCH! The best!!!!

Ren is:

  • He’s amazing
  • He’s Hot
  • He has a dirty mouth
  • He speaks asshole talk so well
  • He’s in the MOB
  • He’s sweet
  • He loves so RIGHTEOUSLY
  • Did I mention he’s hot???

Did I mention that he is all mine?????

From Page 1 this man gave me mini orgasm’s! Seriously!

HE.IS.THAT.GOOD

“You invited me in, Ally. he replied. Around the time you came when my mouth was between your legs on my stairs. Then again when my cock was driving into you in my bed. Then again when you wrapped your mouth around my cock, also in my bed. And a-fuckin-gain when you found it while riding my cock, also in my bed. And last, when you wrapped your sweet, hot naked body around me and passed out in my bed.”

And my share of mini heart breaks… Sigh…Sniff

“You’re not willing to go there with me. You’ve made it clear, baby,” he said, still gentle and sweet. ‘Why you need that, I don’t know. I just know you do. I also know what I want for the future, and  that includes a wife and kids. So as much as I like what we got, it’s important you know where I am at. If you’re not into exploring that kind of future with me, Ally,we gotta cut each other loose.’

……

“I’m not ready for that Ren.”

“Right,” he whispered, and didn’t hide his disappointment. “Be safe,” he said quietly. “And be happy baby.”

My casting:

Ren Zano

“Baby, your gorgeous. The way you wear a dress is like foreplay. The way you give me everything and nothing, making you a challenge on a real man would accept, is all kinds of hot. The way you give as good as you get in bed, totally unselfish at the same time phenomenally greedy… fuck,” he growled, and I felt that growl straight in my happy place. “You’re the best I’ve ever had, Ally, Bar none. And the way you love, stubborn, tough, unshakable, is unbelievably fuckin beautiful…”

Ally:

Don’t judge me!

“Yes, Ren, I love you.”

If you haven’t read this series, YOU SHOULD!

The best of KA! THE.BEST.BAR.NONE
