Lornyc is good at keeping secrets, because secrets can get you killed.
Lornyc hates politics. The small talk, backstabbing, and the attempts to undermine his marriage make his blood boil and his head ache. But what he really hates is someone kidnapping his husband. The suspicion that the Valen are somehow involved is confirmed when the truth about Methian’s real parentage is revealed.
But there are other fights ahead, this time with the mage when Lornyc discovers that they were not only behind his mother’s family being stripped of their magic, but have been trying to limit the Reagalos family powers for centuries.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
AVARICE is the third book in the Reagalos series and we begin where we finished the last book. Lornyc is bogged down by the minutiae of ruling multiple kingdoms, Methian is stepping into his role more as Heir (still want more of him stepping up though), and things are about to get complicated.
I'm going to be 100% honest here - when they arrived in Beher, I thought we were in for a bit of the same old, same old. Methian pretends to like other people; Lornyc doesn't like it. Methian had a multitude of lovers that Lornyc has to deal with; Lornyc had one and Methian can't deal.
INSTEAD, what I got swept me away, and I loved that! I was taken by surprise with the direction this book took me, and I can't thank the author enough! Methian has proven his loyalty to Lornyc beyond a doubt. The Caveer Guards are something else, and I am enjoying them more and more. The story develops even more, giving me twists and turns that fully kept my attention. I was absolutely engrossed with how this one went, and I honestly can't wait for the next one.
This series just gets better and better. Highly recommended by me!

REBECCA COHEN spends her days dreaming of a living in a Tudor manor house, or a Georgian mansion. Alas, the closest she comes to this is through her characters in her historical romance novels. She also dreams of intergalactic adventures and fantasy realms, but because she’s not yet got her space or dimensional travel plans finalised, she lives happily in leafy Hertfordshire, England, with her husband and young son. She can often be found with a pen in one hand and sloe gin with lemon tonic in the other. With contemporaries, historicals, sci fi and fantasy in her back catalogue, there should be something for every taste in Rebecca's work.
