Nothing nice to say.
✓ Royally Trained (Royals of Colania #1) ✓ Let me start by saying the cover is stunning First impression, I would definitely grab it up because of that But it wasn t just the pretty cover that sucked me in, the story itself was enough to make me a lifelong fan.
If you only prefer light fluffy reads, this may not be the book for you It has a darker tone and I think that was one of my favorite things about it I was a huge VC Andrews fan when I was younger So it stands to reason that darker themes appeal to me Let s start with Prince Anton he is dark, and a tortured soul We first and foremost see that side, and the damage he leaves in his wake But he completely three dimensional, and by the end you love him You won t even remember when the switch from hating him to loving him occurred.
Next Teacher Damian fansself , he is brooding, sexy, and protective Even th Diana Ames4 Stars This is a great first time out of the chutes book Diana did not hold back You ll see Of our team here at books and Beyond Fifty Shades I am the historical romance fanatic So imagine my surprise when I figure out this book is not an historical romance despite it being in the countryside of New Zealand, in an ancient castle, with royals governing the land There s even a dungeon The tip off was The Dungeon is a sex club Yep it s one of those hands to mouth giggling Like I said, Diana Ames did not hold back There s a lot of sex and all different kinds vanilla, rape, double penetration, anal, BDSM, reluctant, willing the list goes on So buckle up for these scenes Without giving too much away, King Anton, has his own demons and is subsequently a sex fiend, but in a highly abusive way He knows he must find a submissive who can actually put up with his sadistic I received a copy of this book for an honest review I thought this was a well written first novel The story centers around Prince Anton of Colonia, his friend Damien, a submissive in training Mellisandra, and the men s lifelong friend Gilly There is lies, betrayal, secrets, and some seriously steamy scenes.
I do not have a problem reading about difficult situations but this is not for the faint of heart There is some scenes of sex that are pretty intense and graphic I loved the characters in the book Mellisandra is a wonderful heroine that takes control of every bad situation she is placed in The change in Anton through the book was remarkable I loved Gilly and her screwed up story line The only character that didn t do much for me was Damien.
I would have given this 4 stars except for two things The story is set in the present day but the kingdo I received this book from my book group and i have to say i was captured straight away Royally Trained is a darker read.
I loved it It s based within a Royal family.
The Prince Anton has serious issues.
and i mean serious The guy needs therapylike big time At first i hated him, then i began to understand why he was the way he was.
His half brother Damien is a dominance expert.
He trains all the submissive s applying to be Prince Anton s life mate.
The Prince must have a son or daughter and Damien has the job of providing the mother.
Enter Mellissandra who applies for the job.
The truth is she needs money to provide funding for her brothers medical bills.
She is no way a Sub and is doing this to help her brother only.
Except Damien then falls for her and doesn t want her anywhere near his awful brother so he beds her and then sends her away with a wad of money and a note to say thanks for your
Immediately after reading this book, I had to go research this author to find out if Royally Trained was truly her first book I was shocked to discover that it indeed is her first Author Diana Ames is very talented This book was amazing It reached out and grabbed me and held me captive until the end Honestly, if you want a book to escape from reality until the very end, then this book is for you and you need to one click now I was totally unable to put it down.
It had everything in it, in just the right amounts There was mystery, suspense, love, scorching hot erotic love scenes, and muchI laughed I cried happy and sad tears I laughed and I screamed at my ereader It was just amazing.
It was one of the best written books I ve ever read The author and editor are an awesome team The characters and the plot were well developed The plot moved smoothly The dialogue was amazing and occur I really can t get over how great this book was What first drew me to the book was the concept of a contemporary erotica novel but with a historical feel The book takes place in the country of Colania, which is a small island off the coast of New Zealand Even though this novel takes place in a contemporary setting, it seems like Colania is frozen in time It s still a monarchy and most of the country with the exception of the Castle doesn t have modern amenities such as electricity I got to say that the characters really tore me apart I was so conflicted and there were times that I didn t really know who I wanted to end up with whom Damian is the Teacher at the Dungeon, a sex club that specializes in BDSM
