He ran his tongue first over one nipple, then the other, while his thumb and fingers continued touching between my legs and making my hips rise up of their own accord.  Branford’s fingers dipped farther inside of me, and I felt them curl up as I stiffened and cried out in short, panting breaths.  His fingers retreated quickly, leaving me suddenly empty and somewhat confused.

At the same time, he released my breast from his lips and made a light trail down the center of my body, stopping at my navel.  My fingers moved from his shoulder to his hair, and I let the wonderfully soft strands glide between my fingers.  Branford’s gaze tilted upwards, looking at me, smiling his half smile, and making my stomach clench inside.  While his eyes were still locked with mine, he reached out with his tongue and ran the edge of it around my navel, and I shivered.  Branford grinned, kissed the skin just below the little indentation, then started moving farther down.  Much farther down.

“What are you doing?” I breathed, my eyes wide.

“Kissing you,” he responded with an arch of his brow.  He tilted his head and kissed first one hipbone, then the other.  He slid his hand down my side, over my hip, down my leg, and then curled around my knee.  He lifted my leg, laying it over his shoulder while he continued to watch my face.  As his intent became clearer to me, my breath caught in my throat, and I whimpered.



I felt his lips brush softly over the skin of my inner thigh, and he slowly continued a line of kisses up the inside of my leg while I lay back, horrified at what he was doing.  I remembered the feeling of his fingers between my legs, stroking and fondling me until I was screaming out for him in the middle of the forest, and I remembered the feeling of his tongue across my bare nipples.

My breath escaped me in gasps as his tongue reached out and took a long lick from my opening to the tiny, intense spot at the top of my folds.  His darkened eyes stayed trained to mine as he swirled the tip of his tongue in a small circle around the little nub.  I whimpered, panted, and grasped at the blanket below me as his lips joined his tongue, wrapping around my flesh—licking and sucking as he had done to my breasts only moments before.  An instant later, his fingers joined his mouth, and I felt him slide them slowly back into me—moving in and out leisurely as his tongue circled and pressed against me.

As always I thank those who make it possible for us to bring you this review, Shay Savage and Lit Slave.

And we finally arrived at the consummation of the marriage. I mean for some of us if felt like it was never going to happen. Pretty much Im sure the way that Alexandra had been feeling. Like if it didn’t happen soon something was going to get in the way of her happiness.  Which in all honesty with what has happened in the previous books its not really a surprise she feels  that way. There are certain things that happen in this book that I don’t really want to give away, but do define the kind of person/royal Alexandra is showing to be. She in my opinion proves to be more noble of heart then those who were born into nobility.  I am anxious to see what is going to happen now. Since Shay Savage left it in a bit of a mini cliffy. Well not really a cliffy, but in a place that leaves you hungry for more.

I give this book 5 royal kisses…

Happy Reading… Adri



My Review

It’s finally here!! The consummation scene we have all been waiting for! This is my favorite book in this serial so far, and not just for the sexy parts. We finally get to see a bit more from Alexandra. She is starting to come in to her own and while still meek most of the time, she is starting to grow a backbone. I cannot wait until she is comfortable in her new role so we can see just what she’s made of.
Branford is becoming the knight that I thought he could be. While still possessive, the love that he has for his new bride is so sweet. I have a feeling we are only starting to scratch the surface with Branford though.
I can’t wait for the next book!

5 kisses
