Publisher's Summary

Two all-new novellas that cross the boundaries of desire.
"Exiled" by Maya Banks:
Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince's every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. But when the prince is summoned back to fulfill his duty to his struggling country, reality is thrust upon Talia all too soon. She returns home, heartbroken, convinced she was a passing fancy for an idle ruler and his most trusted men. Until the day they arrive on her doorstep, determined to have her back where she belongs.
"Sway" by Lauren Dane:
Levi Warner is an established, older man - wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies. When their scorching affair turns into something unexpectedly deeper, Levi finds himself torn between preserving his reputation, and exploring a wilder and much more satisfying kind of life.

'Exiled' was one interesting story featuring Talia, Prince Alexander[Xander] and his most trusted friends.' This is a real BDSM theme and this author gives the reader a very intriguing read where the heroine feels that she has to take care
of a debt to Prince Alexander. Will Tia be able to fulfill this obligation? Be ready for some real interesting characters that in the end will give the read some 'passion, love and oh yes some raw sexuality.' This story plot was really something to take in and not wanting to tell it so, I will say you will have to pick up this read for yourself to see how this will all come out if for not other reason than to check out those steamy scenes that this author know how to give her readers.

next....
we have Lauren Dane's story....Sway

'Sway'... was my favorite novella's of the two reads. I really enjoyed this author's perception of a sweet story of a younger woman with a older man. I liked this story of Levi and Daisy and I found most of the characters to be well developed, well portrayed and believable giving the reader a interesting and captivating read that will keep your attention till the end. I thought that this plot was very realistic and in the end the reader is given a sweet sexy read. Be ready for some erotic dominate scenes.

If I could give it zero, I would

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book was not my style at all. Gross, not represented accurately in the description, and frankly, I am embarrassed that I even started the book. I am not into weird sex triangles where a woman is used as a toy by multiple men.


Has Cherished turned you off from other books in this genre?

I will never purchase another book by this author.
