“Sequel to A Bond of Three
It is twenty years since the Bond of Three returned to Teruna. The kingdom of Kandor, once Teruna’s enemy, seeks help and sends its finest warrior, Dainon, on a diplomatic mission. A solitary man since his wife and child died, Dainon is unable to explain why an encounter with a young man on a beach rocks his world to its core.
Prince Arrio of Teruna has always been attracted to men but has never acted on it—until he meets Dainon. Headstrong Arrio goes after what he wants, despite his fathers’ advice. But when Prince Kei arrives unexpectedly, Arrio finds himself drawn to both men. Is history repeating itself?
Prince Kei has his first taste of freedom and is shocked when the visions that have plagued him since childhood become reality. The three men embark on a voyage of discovery. No one has foreseen the day, however, when the arrival of a stranger threatens to destroy their bond.”
Review: 4 beautiful stars for A Bond of Truth!
Every time I read a new book by K.C. Wells I’m reminded of her ability to pull the reader in and transport them to a completely different world. I read the first book in this series just a few weeks ago and didn’t realize how much I missed it until I picked up A Bond of Truth.
The three MC’s in this book were (in my opinion) much better than the three from the first book. It was so hard not to love them right from the beginning. They were extremely different from one another but their character traits worked together so well that the idea of soul mates didn’t seem so far off for them.
Dianon was a gentle man who just couldn’t seem to escape his tragic past. He was loyal and kind but also very guarded and a little uptight. He had that plagued-by-nightmares-but-I’m-still-badass vibe to him and he was so reluctant to give in and listen to his heart! It was like watching a full bowl of water continue to fill until the water bulged at the top, only being kept from spilling over by the water tension. But oh, man when that dam broke all walls came tumbling down and there was a flash flood. Dianon was a fierce lover and he burned with passion for his two men. He certainly took his time getting there, but once he got there it was a no holds barred love fest.
And I was oh, so excited to see baby Arrio return! I remembered him from the first book but the man that he’d become in this book was completely new. Arrio was an act now, ask questions later kind of lover. He jumped in head first and loved with all of his heart. He was passionate and loyal and tender. His tendency to follow his heart without question made him a little impatient where Dianon was concerned, but he tried his hardest to be the man that Dianon needed at that time. He was an extremely attentive lover.
Kei was, to put it simply, a complete angel. The way that he so completely loved and respected every living being, regardless of whether it was Dianon or Arrio or a baby deer. He adored nature and animals. He was the epitome of an animal person. His kindness and patience made him the perfect glue to hold these three men together and keep the communication open and honest.
Getting these three alone together in an empty (or locked) room was like setting off fireworks in a confined space and watching all of the beautiful colors explode in close proximity. Kei’s tenderness, Arrio’s enthusiasm, and Dianon’s fierce passion made their sexy times really heat up the sheets.
I absolutely adored this book. I would definitely recommend this book. K.C. Wells has written a really great book with well-developed, complex characters and a solid alternate world. You could read this as a standalone if you were really determined to, but the first book gives a lot of background and cultural information that this book didn’t focus as heavily on because it was just assumed that the reader had that background knowledge already. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order!
