Publisher's Summary

As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she's ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy's incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own. To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin's mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion-culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.

    "Poor installment to excellent series"

    If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would be "lacking." The best thing it had going for it was the narrator. A very sad state of affairs for one of my favorite series. This book added nothing to the build-up of the overall series. Instead it seems to be a subplot that branches off and leads to a dead end. In short, after pissing off Dragos (the Wyr King) for constantly fighting each other, Aerial and Quintin (two Sentinel soldiers) are ordered to a post-war devastated foreign land to prevent looters. They have to learn to get along because a big bad witch comes on to the scene and their survival depends on working together. They are attacked, injured, captured, and then escape. They fight the big bad witch who is trying to loot an ancient spell to resurrect her dead mate. They win. (Snore.) The title "Kinked?" Oh, right, because the author takes an attempt at character development involving BSMD - and miserably fails! The "kinky" aspect of the romance between Quintin and Aerial was so forced and clumsy it was appalling. I felt like I was reading a 13 year old write about what they envision as BSDM. I mean, there were velvet bonds and a lot of ordering around so it must be BSDM - right?

    "Careful now...."

    I really love this series. The setup for this series is the modern world with the addition of the "Elder Races", also known as "the stuff paranormal / urban fantasy addicts like best". I think Thea Harrison has created some of the best pairings in this genre such as Pia the unicorn & Dragos the dragon, and Grace the Oracle & Khalil the Djinn. Fabulous! Sexy and witty and a good adventure/mystery with well developed and likable characters.

    This book started out good. The two main characters had potential but they went largely undeveloped while the author concentrated on the "kink". All I could think of as I read the story was "Oh no! Not another Anita Blake! Please no!" All the other books in this series had just the right amount of sex thrown in as spice to an already great story. It's not like Ms. Harrison couldn't think of an interesting plot -- this is a great story. It's not that she couldn't think up the characters -- these had appeared in earlier books and had lots of potential. When does fictional sex go from spice to spoiler? I can't say but I know it when I read it. I choose to believe that Thea Harrison won't go over the cliff as have other paranormal romance authors. Please.

    "Not her best book"

    The first book in the series is what keeps me coming back. This one lacked the connection that the other couples have and I felt like the author just couldnt really get into telling this story.

    "Fabulous!"

    Excellent hate and love tale. Aaryal is probably my favorite character in this story besides Graydon. She is witty, funny, intelligent, and snarky. I simply adore her attitude. Quentin is the perfect mate for her. Her archenemy. Great story with a personal recovery.

    "Skip this one..."

    Unless you like listening to S&M sex scenes I'd skip this one. The plot, and I call it that loosely, did nothing to advance the Elder Races Storyline. The novellas advanced it more than this book. I am not a prude by any means but this was a little much for me in the sex department. I spent so much time fast forwarding it through those scenes that it became annoying. I got it on sale and am still going to return it; it was that bad. Don't waste your time or credit. Thea Harrison has many other books worth listening too that are worth your time and money!

    "I Love this series"

    I listen to these books. There's a nice amount of tension that grows but the stories are well done as well. Much effort and thought is in each book.

    "Hot and steamy"

    This was one of the best books in the series. It was very hot and steamy told by one of the best narrators I have ever heard. I'm saddened that I will be finishing up this series but I am so happy that I found this series
