Publisher's Summary

Jotham is the king of the House of Protection. He was the youngest male ever to assume the position because of the sudden death of his father in Jotham's 20th cycle. In the last 40 cycles, he married his life mate, Lata, and lost her in a transport accident. He had two sons and lost one due to his son's own treachery. Now his first son, Barek, is interested in a woman, and Jotham is going to find out everything about her he can.
Jacinda is from the House of Healing. She is the widow of an assemblyman for the House of Protection. Stephan was her life mate even though he was 20 cycles older than she. His sudden death devastated her, and if it weren't for her three children, she isn't sure she would have survived. In the years that have followed his death, she has learned to live with her loss and, more importantly, that life can still be good. She has healed.
When Jotham summons Jacinda to the Palace, his only intent is for her to help him gather information on Amina, Jacinda's great-niece. That plan goes out the window when Jacinda refuses. She challenges not only his right to interfere in Barek's life but questions how he's lived his own since Lata's death.
Two strong personalities come together after having loved and suffered loss. Can they find enough common ground and courage to chance a new love? Or are they destined to live the rest of their lives alone?

The voice of Jotham was over the top in places

I enjoyed this story it is also introduction to other characters in future books however. the voice of Jotham was way over the top especially during the sex scenes he was basically yelling everything and it made laugh instead generating the heat the author intended. but overall a good story.

Love the Series

I'm so very excited to have book3 of the Imperial series in audio. Just wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. It just seems to hang out there. I actually love all M.K. Eidem books and can't wait for her to release more books. Wishing lots of happy, productive moments for MKE. Love the multi voice narration, too.

Not the best in this series

I think that the narrator was trying for a regal sounding Hero but what he achieved was some what of a caricature which made him seem quite pompous and hard to listen to. Still, a lot of effort is put into the production of the audible books in this series and they are well worth the cost.

Very entertaining.

The book alone is a real page turner but the audio add another special layer to this story. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
