Synopsis:

Could the bargain they made to save their lives become their reality?

Turow . . .

Strong, silent man of integrity content to serve his new king as a prince in the turbulent shape-shifter House of Terriot. A tracker and relentless hunter, he’s used to running trails alone until charged with returning a traitor to their mountain top home to face the unforgiving judgment of their clan. Isolated with the bad girl he’s loved forever, the choice between duty and desire has never been more difficult . . . or deadly.

Sylvia . . .

Manipulative schemer or victim caught between a mother’s ambition and a rogue prince’s lust for power? Trust is almost as foreign as the idea of love, but to save herself from certain death, she must risk both on the good man who deserves them . . . from someone worthy. Trapped by the only one who believes in her goodness, she must betray him and run for her life . . . or stay and destroy him with a long hidden truth.

Deadly, Damaged, and Delicious!
House of Terriot
Brothers too H.o.T. to Handle!
 


Review:
Prince of Honor is the first of four books in the House of Terriot series - a spin-off of Gideon's By Moonlight series. Each book features one of four H.O.T. shape-shifter princes - alike in their allegiance to their king, family, & throne and yet, different in personalities, personal battles, and the persona they present to the public. Four deadly princes with a chip on their shoulders, a battle to win, a throne to protect.  Four delicious princes who love fiercely, party hardy, and break hearts.

Prince of Honor is a story about love, loss, redemption, and . . . honor.  It features Turow Terriot, the strong, honorable protector, often hidden in the shadows of his more flamboyant brothers - a prince who has pledged to serve his king at any cost - even if it means transporting the woman he has secretly loved for years back to face certain death before his clan. The choice between duty & passion is a difficult one when you're traveling with a desirable, cunning, yet deadly siren whose song resonates in your heart and soul - one who fills your mind with want and need, driving you wild with her scent - one who crawls over your skin and flows through your blood - one who has you howling Mate!  Row must choose - his honor & duty to his king and family or the woman who holds his heart in her hand. If he makes the wrong choice, he will pay the ultimate price - his life and the downfall of the throne. Will Sylvia prove worthy of Turow's trust, love, and . . . his mark?  Can he trust her to keep her side of a deal that will save & benefit them both?  Or will she destroy him - again?

Sylvia Terriot is a survivor - a strong, beautiful, cunning woman who has always done what she needed to do in order to survive - including bed-hopping her way through the House of Terriot princes. Sylvia knows what "they" think and say about her - that she's a cold-hearted b*tch incapable & unworthy of trust & love. If you hear it often enough, it must be true . . . and so, like an award winning actress, Sylvia hides her feelings and plays the part.  Now, she's being transported back to face the king and pay for her sins. But Sylvia refuses to meekly accept death and, drawing upon her arsenal of tricks, turns the table on Row. When the opportunity presents itself, will she deny her feelings and walk away leaving him for dead? Or accept his deal knowing she can never again walk away?

Prince of Honor is an intriguing, sexy, sometimes dark read. A tightly woven plot will have you burning through the pages as this story of love, lust, trust, betrayal, and forgiveness plays out. The intense, sizzlin' chemistry between Turow & Sylvia is lethal & flammable - sparks igniting the pages as both fight to maintain control of the situation - and their own heart. I loved watching both of these characters go toe-to-toe, owning their mistakes, and claiming their happiness.  Fans of By Moonlight will love this spin-off! If you've missed reading the By Moonlight series, I highly recommend it and yet, you can easily pick up Prince of Honor and transition right into the series. The House of Terriot princes are H.O.T. and yes, the initials spell HOT which is exactly what you'll be after watching these bad*ss, badboy princes get down & dirty on the dance floor & in the bedroom.  Another Page Burner by Nancy Gideon!  A Must Read!


My Rating:  5 Dark, Damaged, Deadly, Dirty, Delicious 's . . . And that's the truth!
