This is one of those side stories that popped up through the series. Having those brooding twins meet their match was fun to see in Carmen's book. We had just enough hints to see things coming. It was interesting seeing those same events from the inside with this book. It did make a few things in the beginning seem to go slower. I just wanted to fast forward to the moment they knew she was a girl and what happened after.
There are no major twist in this book, it is more about the trio than any serious plot drama. Most of the big bad stuff was resolved and not really a part of this story. There is another conflict presented by the nature of them as twin dragons. Apparently, twin dragons never have found a true mate, so things do get dramatic at the end.
It takes awhile for the steam to happen, especially because for a large chunk of the book they thought she was a boy. Once that is dissolved, the spark happens quickly. They are seriously hawt details!! It is super fast for things happening. It is a very spicy book in the end.
I liked this book, but it wasn't a favorite in the series. I just kept waiting for something to happen. Once things did get exciting, it just wasn't enough for me. I would have liked the recap portion to have been quicker and more of their time on Earth as well as them coming home to the village.
As always the narration was a highlight, David Brenin is one of my ear crushes!! I just cannot get enough of his delicious reads!! He has a splendid pace that brings the action to life in delightful ways! I want him to read to me nightly!!
There are still a couple more side books in this series, then the stories of the other planet's princes. I love that this creates such a full world with so much potential!! The connections of the stories is a fascinating puzzle to unravel.

O.K. first of all the twin dragons did NOT kidnap the young girl. Some other aliens kidnapped a young female & her grandfather from earth to be slaves. Her grandfather hides the fact that she was a female to keep her safe. She grew up 6 years away from earth as a young boy the "wasn't right in the head". The pair get rescued but, chances of getting back to earth are complicated when the twin dragon brothers meet the "boy' and find that they are strongly attracted to "him" this story has some sad situtations and bizarre events that keep the reader/listener scratching their head. It was the typical struggle of alpha male/males controling their female to bend to their wishes. I felt sorry for the young lead female. She lost soooo much and then when she though she might get her life back. Uncontrollable forces push her into another life. Her childhood is robbed & innocents lost. Perhaps losing her roots & family made room for new ones.. We hope.

Might float some peoples boats, but my boat sank without trace. To be fair it just wasn't my cup of tea.
I have read this audio in digital a few times but i still have not gotten enough of the story of the "Twin Dragons" and their true mate Melina. It's absolutely heart stopping. It has everything that a great story should have, it has hot sizzling romance and humour that made me giggle and sadness thats made me cry. The narrative is smooth and flows through the chapters. The narrator is amazing in switching between characters, it's believable because i felt every emotions that the characters portrayed (felt). Thank you S E Smith for another wonderful story.
