SUMMARY
It was supposed to be an easy job: Get in, assassinate the queen, and get out. Instead, his fellow mercenary is dead and Madoc is chained in the dungeon, fighting his unwelcome attraction to the woman who defeated him--the queen's bodyguard, Raine. When she interrogates him about the traitor who hired him, he propositions her. He'll tell her what he knows, if she'll spend one night of passion with him.

Raine isn't just a bodyguard--she's his target, the queen. Magic amulets allow her to switch identities with her bodyguard, and also let her assume a disfigured appearance that discourages anyone from looking at her too closely. Madoc's offer takes her completely by surprise. Though she knows she can't trust a mercenary, she can't deny she's attracted to him. Her need for answers gives her the excuse to indulge in her desires--at least for one night.

What starts as a sexual power play soon turns into a connection that is more than physical. But Raine's enemies haven't given up their quest for her throne, and they intend to destroy the one person who could reveal the truth behind their treachery: Madoc.

Hiding in plain sight is the way to prevent assassins from killing royalty. Raine is more than meets the eye when Madoc crosses her to kill his target--the Queen. When the two wrestle for survival, it morphs into an erotic power struggle. Unfortunately for Madoc, he loses and is taken prisoner.

The erotic heat between Madoc and Raine is good. There is an undertone of kinky femdom dominance which makes their sex more appealing for me. The chains, rough sex and dungeon inquiry are all well written and generate a certain exciting thrill to those who enjoy forced submission.

This story is a short intrigue with enough world building for a reader to crave more. There are questions left hanging which leads a reader to believe there could be a follow up book. The plot and conflict are familiar to stories revolving around kingdoms with a young Queen trying lead. There are conspiracies, surprising allies and friendships betrayed.

This story moves along quickly and introduces intriguing secondary characters. The ending is a bit rushed and predictable. The author sets it up for readers to easily ascertain the villains. The main force behind the villains is still up in the air and leaves a reader wondering what will happen next. This sexy romance is recommended for readers who enjoy a strong male on the receiving end of an erotic interrogation.
