By this book in the series, Queen Temair has her four Consorts and is married to all of them. The first two, Miach and Dathan, are sent on a mission to investigate a problem in the war of the Male Rebellion.
Miach hates being away from Temair and is uncomfortable being alone with Dathan. There is a mutual attraction between them that worries Miach. He feels brotherly toward the other two Consorts, but much more than that to Dathan. “The push and pull of his feelings for Dathan…almost giddy with lust.”
Dathan has been drawn to Miach since the first time he saw him. He wants Miach even more now. They both love their wife, but can they love each other as well?
I really wish I had read the first four parts of this series, and I will. The cast of characters is wonderful, the conflicts mainly internal in this story, but the heat is seriously hot.
Miach, Lord Fyre: powerful magician
Dathan, Lord Rayne: equal in power to Miach
Zevan, Lord Aire: vicious and dirty fighter, strategist
Elan, Lord Earth: gentle, nonjudgmental
