Publisher's Summary

Jotham is the king of the House of Protection. He was the youngest male ever to assume the position because of the sudden death of his father in Jotham's 20th cycle. In the last 40 cycles, he married his life mate, Lata, and lost her in a transport accident. He had two sons and lost one due to his son's own treachery. Now his first son, Barek, is interested in a woman, and Jotham is going to find out everything about her he can.

Jacinda is from the House of Healing. She is the widow of an assemblyman for the House of Protection. Stephan was her life mate even though he was 20 cycles older than she. His sudden death devastated her, and if it weren't for her three children, she isn't sure she would have survived. In the years that have followed his death, she has learned to live with her loss and, more importantly, that life can still be good. She has healed.

When Jotham summons Jacinda to the Palace, his only intent is for her to help him gather information on Amina, Jacinda's great-niece. That plan goes out the window when Jacinda refuses. She challenges not only his right to interfere in Barek's life but questions how he's lived his own since Lata's death.

Two strong personalities come together after having loved and suffered loss. Can they find enough common ground and courage to chance a new love? Or are they destined to live the rest of their lives alone?

    "The voice of Jotham was over the top in places"

    I enjoyed this story it is also introduction to other characters in future books however. the voice of Jotham was way over the top especially during the sex scenes he was basically yelling everything and it made laugh instead generating the heat the author intended. but overall a good story.

    "Love the Series"

    I'm so very excited to have book3 of the Imperial series in audio. Just wish the ending wasn't so abrupt. It just seems to hang out there. I actually love all M.K. Eidem books and can't wait for her to release more books. Wishing lots of happy, productive moments for MKE. Love the multi voice narration, too.

    "Very Distracting"

    I was pretty disappointed with this book. Not because I didn't enjoy the story (which is actually my favorite in the series), but because the narrator RUINED the voice of King Jotham. His reading of Jotham's voice was easily one of the most annoying and distracting things I've ever heard.

    I'll have to say that this is the best narrated book along with all of MK Ediem's books. Sets the new standard for all!

    Story
    "Better than the first two."

    I hadn't planned to listen to this one, because of the foul language and excessive sex scenes of the first two, but I did. And was pleasantly surprised. A good story, only a couple of swear words, halfway believable sex scenes, and a peripheral continuation of characters met in the forest two books. Well worth the listen.

    "Another outstanding book"

    I have enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone.
    Awesome book with great characters.
    What can I say but that I have loved all her books. Each one is unique but she connects them very well and I keep wanting more after each one. Plus she leaves it open to hear other stories. Can wait for the next one to come out!!! I haven't been disappointed yet!

    "Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!"

    This was another enthralling story for this futuristic world. I hope it will continue. There are so many other characters that need to have their own story told. Please M.K., give us more.
