BDSM, Erotic Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Sylvie's more human librarian than half-blood Fae princess, and she definitely prefers books to men. She learns her unwanted Lykae fiancé is marrying someone else. If she doesn't stop the wedding, the Fae will resume the border war with the Werewolf nation. A high-handed Lykae security guard blocks her every move, and when her plans go awry, she's kidnapped, stripped, and bound for his pleasure.
Caleb the Cold, King of the Lykae, will do anything to make his younger brother's wedding special-even pretend he's a security guard and kidnap his brother's former fiancée. Punishing her is pure pleasure, until he realizes she's his mate. Now he needs to woo the woman he's tormented to the edge of madness, but is it too late to claim her heart, and make her his?

Kidnapped, sexually tormented and attacked by anaconda vines, how does innocent Sylvie survive this day?
Sylvie is a half-fae princess doing her best to keep her half-brother, King of the Fae, from declaring war on the Lykae. Sylvie is betrothed to Giles, a slimy self-centered stupid beta werewolf. When Sylvie tries to stop the wedding or at least reason with Giles, she is constantly blocked by a huge yet handsome werewolf, Caleb the Cold, King of the Lykae.
From the start of this story, it's humourous and wacky. Ms. Fortune possesses a good sense of humour which she infuses into this book. Her characters are a bit drama-ridden yet still endearing. Sylvie is a bit self-effacing due to her low self-esteem. Usually these types of females are abhorrent to me. This is because they are whiny and always going "boo hoo hoo". Sylvie may have some self-confidence issues, but her heart is true. She fights for the greater good and her heart is soft for even someone who treated her shabbily. It does make a reader wonder if she's an ideal candidate for abused wives.
Caleb is the stubborn male who can't imagine being wrong. He's the shoot first and then ask questions later guy. This is pretty funny in the story because he royally screws himself and still comes out ahead. It boggles the mind how Ms. Fortune gives a hot headed guy like Caleb a clean slate.
The sex in this story is teasingly titillating and plays on the capture seduction fantasies. The hint of edging is great to keep both the characters and reader sexually frustrated as the erotic tension increases. When it is finally consummated, it's a relief. Amidst all this tomfoolery, a group of monster-hating humans breaks into the party and all hell breaks loose. It does make it seem as if there will be a follow up to this book if not an entire series. It would be interesting to learn more about this human hate group as well as see what happens with Sylvie and Caleb.
This paranormal romance is recommended to erotic readers who like a bit suspense with their campy sexy romances.

By trying to make his brother's wedding special, Caleb the Cold, King of the Lykae, punished his brother's former fiancée before realizing she's his mate in this enchanting paranormal romance.
Sylvie is trying to prevent a border war but she can't get past the high-handed Lykae security guard. Readers can't help but be delighted as well as enticed by Sylvie and Caleb's explosive courtship that's full of misled directions and betrayals that result in quite a few humorous events, lots of emotional turmoil and some scorching passion. These strong compelling characters have no problem demanding the reader's attention in this well written, fast paced and smooth flowing plot that enchants reads with lots of suspense, excitement and romance. There's also an unexpected twist that placed both Sylvie and Caleb in danger, adding excitement and spice to the story.
The author has created a fascinating world full of interesting characters and intriguing elements that span the human world and the fae realm. I was completely enchanted by this first story although I do wish it had been longer because I was quite taken with Caleb and Sylvie. I am looking forward to reading the next Scattered Siblings story.
