Far too young, Apollo Ulfr lost Ilsa, his wife, the love of his life and the mother of his two children. The grief of her loss does not settle in his soul, it solders to it. But when he discovers there is a parallel universe where his wife may have a twin, he feels there’s hope and sets about bringing her to his world so he can have her back.

But Ilsa Ulfr of our world is married to the parallel universe’s twin, Pol, who is not a good man. Not in any way. She’s on the run from him and the last thing she wants is to be transported to a fantastical world and be forced to take his side as his wife, even if he is not Pol. And Apollo finds the broken, bitter Ilsa nothing like his beloved and he further wants nothing to do with her.

But darkness is looming and evil is amassing. Apollo must protect his land and keep his family safe, including the new Ilsa.

Review :

Finished reading Broken Dove on midnight January 1st was like New Year gift (yes, I spent my New Year eve on home, babysit my baby nephew, haha lucky me I have Broken Dove to accompany me). And after couple of disappointment, finally Kristen Ashley back to the game. Bow for you Ms. Ashley. Proudly present : 5 freaking stars!!!!!!

Love love love love the book. Superb storyline, amazing characters, epic romance, and HOT HOT HOT scenes, also must be said : wonderful epilogue, just like Ms. Ashley signature, queen of Epi.

KA bring her greatness again with the fourth installment of Fantasyland series. Please noted that you recommended to read the previous books, as all of the h/H of the series made appearance, and it would give the reader deep insight to our H/h and all secondary characters.

Won’t get much to the story. But it was about two parallel universe, where you could found your identical self in the other world. As we could found the same faces in other world, our Hero, Apollo (Lo), after years of grieving for his wife, Ilsa, was asking (well paying actually) a witch, Valentine, to bring Ilsa from the other world (latter on Ilsa from modern world called herself Maddy). It was story of how the couple overcome the hurdles, how Lo treating Maddy and redeem himself to win her love and trust, how to work it out with his two children, how Maddy adapt to the new world and found herself then put the pieces together after broken by abusive husband for years, and also how they will fighting the enemy and win the war.

In this amazing story you could found the suspense, the action where sword, arrow, and pistol involve, the scenes where blood splattered, the queen-princess-and prince with their castle, do not forget the dragon and fairy, also the witches with their magic spell. Adding with spice of hot romance.
When I written hot, I mean HOT. Ms. Ashley always known for her sizzling romance, even she write under erotica by her Unfinished Hero series. But this book way out in sensuality. The bed scenes were panty melting, body squirming, and self fanning. Yes, prepare a fan and ice for the ride.

“I tell you now, my poppy, for years, I never thought I would again be happy. Never again.” He tucked me closer and finished on a rough whisper. “So I never imagined I could be happier.” – Lo

“So this is what it feels like not to be broken.” – Maddy

The Most Favorite Hero :

acheron

(The Picture is image of Acheron taken from Sherrilyn Kenyon official website  http://www.sherrilynkenyon.com/character/acheron/)

Yes. For you who claimed as paranormal romance genre lovers, the infamous Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and her focal character Acheron surely wasn’t a novel thought.  Ash. Akri. T-Rex. Achimou. My everlasting favorite hero. Sure, his position as my fave hero always had and always will be shaken by another contender, another alpha male hero, another gorgeous guy. But, he will always held the top five of my favorite hero.  Click here for my review.

The Most Favorite Heroine :

elena

The heroine from Guild Hunter series (Angels’ Blood, Archangel Kiss, Archangel Consort) by Nalini Singh crawl up as my favorite heroine in few days time. Yes, I just recently started the series week ago and finished it today and Elena – the new immortal angel – somehow caught my attention so strongly. I love how she was trying compromised between her relationship with the hero, Raphael, without losing herself as independent warrior woman.

The Most Surprising Books :

This series categorized as erotica genre with BDSM theme surprisingly didn’t revolt me. In fact the series amazingly got me hooked up, crave for more of the characters and for the happily ever after which was quite impossibly  happen.  I wasn’t a fan of erotica, but enjoyed  erotic romance (note the different  please) and I was absolutely didn’t loved BDSM theme but ended like it like A LOT. Weird. But, this books surprisingly well written, so that was enough  explanation. Click my review of the series in here, here, and here.
