Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete.

What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

Quinn and Blay FINALLY get together!

What did you like best about this story?

Ummmmmmm, Quinn and Blay. Ok, I like that future stotylines were incorporated to continue the series. But mostly, yeah, Quinn and Blay. I'm totally hetero but have been rooting for these two for a while now!

Which scene was your favorite?

When Quinn lost his virginity to Blay. It wasn't about the sex, it was about Quinn giving the only thing of value he had left to Blay.

This series was recommended by a friend. I usually read paranormal type romances, mostly vampires. I was also warned about the Sadism and Masochism. Truly, this plays a roll only to explain Phedra's character. She was born a masochist, it defined her and who she was. It also made her unbelievably strong. That strength was needed for her to succeed in her travails. It is not a book about sex. There is graphic sex included, but it is included to support the plot. Most people know that more things are revealed in pillow talk than in other conversations. I was intrigued from word one, and never read the actual book, Audible was my introduction. However, it is not an "easy read" you actually have to pay attention to what is going on.
