Publisher's Summary

Four hundred years in the future, women control the world but Khan Aurelius, ruler of the last free men, is determined to take back the power that has been denied men for centuries. Outnumbered by far, he knows that women need to give up their power willingly and with one of their councilwomen as a hostage, he's certain he can influence her with his superior male intellect. She is just a soft woman, after all.

Councilwoman Pearl has sacrificed herself to save an innocent priestess. Trapped in the Northlands, her soft voice and sugar-coated view of the world doesn't impress Khan, who constantly challenges her by playing his mind games to corrupt her and see things his way.

It's a battle of words and wills when the two intelligent rulers clash. Will Pearl succeed in bringing enlightenment and democracy to the primitive Nmen or will Khan corrupt her with his charm first?

Contains mature themes.

Good story, unfulfilling romance

This book put me in a weird position of really wanting the couple to work out but also not feeling attached to them whatsoever. They were together but I couldn’t really feel it if that makes sense.

Great Narration! Enjoyable Characters

First - I have listened to all of the current Men of the North books - so clearly I am a fan.

What caught me first is in the description - I like that this series is different from your everyday romance. It is post-apocalyptic without being SO out there (it is a bit, but hey - I get it). So I gave them a shot. That is when John Masterson hooked me - full stop. His voice is gravelly and delicious. Sometimes it even sent chills running along my spine. I know it is a personal taste thing, but for me - it was perfection.

Don't get me wrong Noelle Bridges did an excellent job too.

About the story - I think the characters come to life. They have some good development (for a romance novel) and I love that the women are just as strong and developed as the men.

GOD BLESS THE AUTHOR for telling a story per book! Yes, she builds off of the prior books but it is not this BS with 3 or 4 books to tell one story. You get different characters stories in the different books. I have since turned some of my other girls onto to these books and they seem to love them too.

If you like romance of equals, where they challenge each other and adapt - I think you will like these books.

Loved it!!!

I had it off reading THE RULER, because after reading the first and third book I felt his book would not be good. But I was so very wrong. I loved both H and h . They were great together. Both strong and had their own opinions a d views. It was funny, and a very loving couple that had a romantic and steamy sexy relationship. Recommend highly.

Great sequel

This was a very good sequel to the first book. The author dove further into the heroes past influences that molded him into the person that he was. There was a good amount of steam. If you’re lucky enough to purchase the book with narration with this book will find out that it is the best on the market. I am looking forward to reading book three.

PRETTY GOOD

Book 2 in this Series is the story of Khan and Pearl. Khan is the ruler of the Men. Councilwoman Pearl agreed to be his captive in exchange for the release of a stolen priestess (by a distraught Magni who was looking for his runaway wife). Khan is now Pearl’s protector and they are both well matched in intelligence so they bicker a lot. They are working on a special experiment on having one man and one woman teach young children to see if they can work together. During their months together, they fall in love.

It's pretty good. The series in general is pretty good. It's not in my favorites list, but it's definitely entertaining and I keep listening! You'll get a battle of the genders, light sex, love, and a HEA.
