My Chat with Leontide

Hello and welcome!

As usual when I invite one of M. A. Abraham’s hunks, they have to do their own thing, and forget about answering my questions. But… I AM NOT COMPLAINING 😉

Read on about my newest adventure…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I shut down my computer and again it is way after quitting time. It has been a hellish day and the rush requests haven’t quit all day. I want to go home, grab a bite and loose myself in a book, my usual escape from reality.

I rush to the exit, open the door, and step into the arms of a man that hadn’t been there only a moment ago. I swear it is true, he appeared out of nowhere. Oh yes, did I mention he has abs that were made in Heaven, with the white wings to match? I look up… and up … and up …. and I can’t contain my smile …

KYLLAN!!!!!!

I blush and stammer,So sorry, I didn’t see you there.

Kyllan chuckles, I know he has heard my thoughts and my blush deepens. I don’t know why I even try when I know they are sensitive to thought patterns.

Timing is sometimes everything, Kyllan replies.

Yes, it most definitely is, I respond, with a sheepish grin. I mean, what is a girl to do or say?

I have brought you a guest, if you don’t mind, Kyllan announced. The Siren Elder, Leontide. I believe you have heard of him.

Yes, I had, and yes, I am curious. As Kyllan moves aside, to allow me to see Leontide, I am expecting an elderly gentleman to appear before me. Hot damn. These aliens need to be labeled with warning signs: ‘Danger ladies, can cause overloading of Human circuits.’ I nearly break into a sweat.

You are Leontide? I stammer. I never stammer!

At your service, Leontide answered with a bow of greeting.

He thought that he would bring you a surprise, Kyllan chuckled.

As if this isn’t surprise enough, he has the physic of someone around twenty-five years old. How do they keep themselves in this kind of shape? I am both jealous, as well as running on hormone overload.

It is all the swimming and flying we need to do to live, which is something I thought you might enjoy. This is why I have come, as well as to meet you. Kyllan is always talking about you, and for him to be impressed by a Human, I thought you had to be something special.

They certainly weren’t in the back of the line when it came to handing out charm. I look at Leontide’s sparkling eyes, and I know there is more to this than he is telling me. All right, I will bite, and anything he offers actually. Where did that thought come from? He is also talking about swimming, and although it isn’t really the right time of the year, I am curious.

You needn’t worry about the temperature of your lakes, we know it is cold and will take precaution. I have brought someone to keep you warm and safe in the water. Leontide assures me.

Warm and safe in the water? There was ice in that water only a week ago, I exclaim.

You will find that is immaterial to us, Leontide informs me.

My thoughts were, ‘maybe immaterial to them, but I will freeze my bootie off.’

Allow me to introduce you to Sailon. He is one of our people, about your age. With your permission, he will show you the wonders of you oceans, or at least some of them. Leontide offered.

Sailon stepped out from behind Leontide and smiled. I could have cried. The temperature of the outside world also just spiked at fifty degrees Celsius. Yes, I could use a cold swim right about now, although the lake might not be cold enough. He is not only built like a surfer, but his blond sun kissed hair over a well-tanned face makes him look like a model for one. I am dying here, but I may go happily.

Sailon smiles, as he holds out his hand and purrs, I can’t think of an expression close enough to cover that sound, this will have to do. Name your pleasure.

I take a deep breath, clear my throat and bless the day I told my son he could have a sleepover at his friend’s. I am going to Heaven.

I will be near, if you need me, Leontide teased.

I am remembering Sten and Errisa, as I think, ‘Hopefully not too close.’ Then I answer him, I have always wanted to go to the South Sea Islands.

South-Sea-island-3.jpgsource

Our pleasure is making you happy, Kyllan will transport us, but we can’t be gone for long. Despite that, we will make sure your time with us will be pleasurable. Leontide assured me with a wink.

Ta-Ta people, we are off, see you when I return.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, what do you think?

When my chats are hijacked my adventures are always oh-so-satisfying, don’t you think?

Intercession-coverSM

That gorgeous hunk on the cover is The Tribunal Elder, KYLLAN sigh

You will meet the Siren Elder, Leontide in INTERCESSION, book 4 in the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, releasing on May 10, 2017. He is such a character, funny, with a mischievous streak that will have you laughing.

The Tribunal Elder has lived through more millenniums than he cares to think about. He is not the type to shirk his duties. He is a force to reckon with; yet he is known to be a kind man. To settle a dispute between the Martians and the Human, he will travel to Mars. Before he returns home, this problem will be settled, one way or another.

The message from the Martians is clear, remove the settlers from the surface of their planet, or they will die. The Tribunal Elder soon discovers there is more to this than those who are in command know about, for the act that precipitated this action had multiple events. Someone is working in the background, manipulating forces, to create a power struggle between the two species.

Will he allow the Tantalarians be pulled into a conflict that they have and want nothing to do with?

Read Chapter 1 here and find the pre-order links are here.

My review:
“This book brings a major twist in the series, that I didn’t expect. An exciting continuation of the series where we find out more about Tantalarian history, a conflict on Mars and a positive outcome for all involved. I recommend it with 5 stars.”

Thank you Leona and Alec for spending time with me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you for joining me, hope you enjoyed the chat.

Leona and Alec hail from The Bowie Bride, book 2 of The Mackintoshes and McLarens series by Suzan Tisdale, to be released April 18, 2017.

BowieBride-cover.jpg

Alec Bowie never wanted a wife. He never wanted a hearth and home. And he most assuredly never wanted to be chief of his clan. But much to his vexation, he finds himself in possession of all three.

His desire for peace and to protect his clan are stronger than his desire to remain free and untethered. He agrees to the marriage in the hopes his wife will bed him only long enough get with child then leave him the bloody hell alone.

Leona MacDowall — or Leona ‘Odd Eyes’, Leona the Witch, or Leona ‘The Devil’s Spawn’ depending on to whom you speak — is all too happy to volunteer to marry the Bowie Chief. Though the clan Bowie’s reputation as murderers and thieves precedes them, she believes life with Alec more palatable than living the rest of her life untouched, unmarried, and under the hateful rule of her spiteful father.

But nothing turns out the way they expect. Alec doesn’t know if he can keep to his original plan of leaving his wife alone after he gets her with child. Leona is beginning to suspect she might not get the happy home she’s always wanted. And worst of all, someone’s set on murdering Leona — and might just succeed before anyone’s dreams can come true.

Full Mountie – Release Day!

Hello and welcome!

SQUEEEE

I guess you can tell I am excited! The much awaited book 3 in the Frisky Beavers series by the dynamic duo, Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller is here! Downloaded it the minute I opened my eyes this morning!

CONGRATS Ainsley & Sadie!

17554346_1810803705803868_8194784505647650954_n.jpg

Lachlan:

365 days I’ve wanted Beth beneath me, begging for release. One long, angst-filled year we’ve circled each other, keeping things strictly professional.

But I’ve also got shit in my past that complicates relationships. And I should know better than to hope secrets can stay buried.

Hugh:

A year? Try ten. A decade ago, I let Lachlan walk away because deep down, I knew he needed something else.

As soon as I laid eyes on her, I understood what I was up against: he loves Beth. Looks at her in a way he’d never look at me.

I get it.

Curvy, smart, and bossy? I just might love her, too.

Beth:

Two men. Two first dates.

Two first kisses…

But this doesn’t feel like a love triangle.

Oh no. It’s much more complicated than that. I’m not complaining. I’m game for anything. I just have one rule: we don’t tell anyone.

SECURITY BRIEFING:

* Warning: there are no limits to these Mounties’ willingness to please

* Never underestimate the strength of a woman

* Sometimes the past can come back and bite you…if you’re lucky

* Top-secret clearance means three doesn’t need to be a crowd

17553720_1811348262416079_1664669798943160941_n.jpg

Here is a taste…

Beth

I put my hands on his shoulders and make a shushing sound when he protests. “Let me. You’re…tense.”

He laughs. “That’s an understatement.”

“Mmm. You’re welcome to talk about that if you want.”

A sigh is the only answer I get at first. That’s okay. If you want is what I said and I mean it. I tug his jacket off and smooth my hands over his shirt-covered muscles.

He finally speaks, low and quiet. “This isn’t how I pictured any of this going. You and me, I mean.”

Regret rolls over in my tummy, because maybe if we’d acted sooner, if I’d opened my mouth and issued an invite last fall, over the winter…

But I didn’t. And maybe that was for a reason.

Plus this is Lachlan. No matter what, I think I love him. I want to be his friend. His face is the first one I look for each morning and the last I seek out before heading home at night.

I roll my thumb along a knot in one of his neck muscles. He has more than most men, it’s hard to name them all. And I tell myself to hold my tongue, but that’s a total fail. “Yeah. Me, too.”

I swear he growls under his breath, but he holds still as I work my fingers from his neck down to his shoulders and back again. He rolls his head, stretching his neck out, and I let my fingertips glide onto the bare stretch of skin above his shirt collar.

Smooth, warm, and taut, his skin stretches tight over flexing tendon and muscle. He doesn’t move, so I let myself explore further, to the sharp edge of his hair cut, short and cropped in the back, fading up to a bit longer on top.

Precise, just like the man himself.

Controlled.

Whatever history they share, Hugh’s arrival has thrown Lachlan for a loop. I should step back and let them sort that out.

Instead I play with his hairline and let myself imagine touching him in a more intimate way. Exploring more skin than the few inches above his collar.

Hearing that tight, reserved grunt because I’m taking him deep into my mouth and he’s throwing his head back—

Lachlan’s hand closes around my wrist and I freeze.

Gabriel is 5 years old! YAY

Hello and welcome!

Today we celebrate 5 years since ‘Gabriel’, book 1 of the Elven Chronicles was released to the world.

CONGRATS M. A. ABRAHAM!

EC-bookmarks-x2-final

5 years later and 12 full novels & 9 short stories make up the Elven Chronicles! An epic series you should not miss!

For this occasion I asked a few of the fans of the series to share with me their impressions of Gabriel.

But first I would like to introduce Gabriel to those of you who have not met him yet.

c60c6696-d0ab-46d5-8922-f19dbcab3796

Gabriel Eagle Claw is the High Lord General of the Combined Elven Armies in the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham. He plays a big part in the series and is adored by many. I came to really-really like him, especially after reading the last book in the series, “Kings of the Empire” released last month.

Eden-poster.jpg

His Life Mate is Eden, a powerful Tratchar, a special title held by Elves of extreme power focused on the health and welfare of the Great Guardian and the Sentinel Trees of the Elven Empire.

Here is my impression of Gabriel when I first read it, way before it was published, sent in an email to MA…

Date: Sun, 29 May 2011 09:11:33
Subject: Gabriel

Hello Mary Ann!

I finished Gabriel and I am looking forward to getting Marious. You have a wonderful imagination and it should be shared with a lot of people, but I am glad you decided to share with me. I think the story is wonderful, lots of twists and turns, unexpected surprises…. I loved it because it had a range of emotion triggers, especially the humour, and I find it an easy reading, just enough descriptions without getting boring.
In the end I found myself hungry for more. I hope you will continue the story line.

I would love to read any of your stories.
Hugs

The response I got: “I am working on Marious and there are 3 others that follow”

Here is my review for ‘Gabriel’

5 stars – I am definitely an Elfanatic!

I haven’t read too many books of elves and the ones I read were portraying elves as evil or at least not very nice. Gabriel’s book opened another world which portrays elves in a totally different light, as any other supernatural beings, with the good and the bad. I really enjoyed the book, with its complex and varied characters and at the same time easy to read, just enough descriptive scenes without getting overwhelmed. I look forward to the next ones in the series. I highly recommend the book, even if you are not into elven books.

You can check what other people had to say about it since it released on line in reviews left on various portals.

From the author:

The idea of Gabriel popped into my head about 2 weeks after my mother died. For whatever reason I picked up a pen and started to write.

It had never been my intention to write more than Gabriel‘s story, but by the time it was finished, ‘Marious’ Story’ had been born, ‘King’s Champion’ took flight when Serenity showed up on the scene.  Gabriel, as a character kept growing until he seemed to grow bigger than life to me.  It was something I felt that only an Elf could do.  In many ways, I felt that the expectations that others had of him were enough to bring anything less than the strongest of men to their knees.  Bringing him to life, along with the others who surround him was quite a trip.  Keeping him humble was a challenge.  

The impressions from the fans of the series:

“This was my first foray into the Elven world and I was astonished how much I loved it. What a wonderful and intriguing story this is and I loved the characters. Gabriel became my Elven book boyfriend! Oh and Eden, what a beautiful spitfire she is but a very loyal soul! I couldn’t wait to read the next intriguing story – I was hooked.” ~ Betty ~

“I was pulled into this world and loved the characters and the world Mary Ann built for them, and didn’t want to leave it. At first I was pulled more to Marious in the story but by the end I was in love with Gabriel, he and Eden have remained my favorite couple through out the series. I had a very hard time reading another book after this one, and had the same problem with each of the books following. I would love to live there. Have reread it many times.” ~ Emily ~

“This is a genre I don’t generally read, but decided to venture out…Now I know why I was waiting for the perfect book & in Gabriel I found it, I was transported to a world so fantastic I never wanted to come back. Also discovered a new found love of Elves 🙂 This is a wonderfully written tale, with moments so touching brought tears to my eyes….But every emotion is played on. If you read nothing else, Read this. 🙂

Gabriel stayed with me, the perfect dream man, his bravery, loyalty, & his great love for Eden, his life mate & their children…What a wonderful pair… Eden was so stubborn, but loving, willing to give all if need be… They complemented teach each other perfectly, this is a series I hate to see end but they will always have a special place in my heart. I can’t thank Mary Ann enough for the emotional journey these books brought for me. Gabriel’s story will always be very special to me.” ~ Liz ~

“I have known Mary Ann before she had any thoughts of publishing her works. I first met her in Christine Feehan’s site, which was a wonderful place to meet many people who had the same enjoyment of reading and the author. I learned upon our many talks about her love of writing and her thoughts about not trying to publish her books, which I gathered were many over the years. Becca and many of her friends pushed Mary to self publish, which she eventually did. That is where it all began with Gabriel and the start of the Elven Chronicles.

Sandy and I started our own blogging site for book reviews in January of 2012, and we were happy to feature a new author, M.A. Abraham. 5 years later, we have followed and supported Mary throughout her career as a novelist, and now though it has been a joyous journey, the first arc of the Elven Chronicles has come to a close with Kings of the Empire. I thought I would give my thoughts on this series, which includes 12 novels and many novellas.

When I started this series with Gabriel, it was a new world created by M.A. Abraham, with Elves, warriors and a sweet romance between Gabriel and Eden, who would continue to play a major part of this series the entire way. Little did I think after the first book how much Gabriel, Eden and all those elves we met along the way would become part of our family. My final comment on my review of Gabriel: ‘M.A. Abraham is a fresh and interesting new author, with a wonderful imagination.’  Wow, I had no idea how true this would be as each new book was published.

In my later reviews, I had noted many times about Mary’s wonderful imagination creating all her stories, besides the Elven Chronicles; as well having a wonderful sense of humor. By the time we got to the 4th book, I can see a change in Mary’s writing as she was evolving into more serious stories, with tense, exciting action, added to her blend of humor & wonderful romantic couples. Each book just kept getting better and better. In the last book, Kings of the Empire, I think this comment says it all:

‘M.A. Abraham blows us away with a wild, non stop, thrilling, exciting finale that wows us with her seamless flow, especially with the main characters, both new and those who have been with from the start. Thank you M.A. Abraham for bringing us into your world of Elves, and your wonderful characters we have come to love.’

I am proud to call Mary Ann my friend, and an author I will always read. Thank you, Mary, it has been a fun wonderful ride with you and I look forward to being with you on your next journey.” ~ Barb
, The Reading Cafe ~

“I’ve read many of M.A.’s works and enjoyed each one.

‘Gabriel’ happens to be one of the first works of this author I read. I enjoyed the escape it allowed me and all of the magical sweetness.

Elves are not easy to write about. They’re rather complex beings with unpredictable personalities. Creating a world the characters as M.A. has done, and with such vivid imagination, is not easy yet she did it for not just one book but an entire series.

I’ll say that many will be turned off from the overconfidence most elves project. But given the proper chance, I feel they’d find themselves rather enjoying themselves and the unity they show as they progress further into the pages. I’d recommend ‘Gabriel’ to any reader’s out there looking for something different.” ~ A.R. Von ~ author of Wunder Series

“It was such a beautiful world you’ve created M.A. And I think thats what Earth should have been =D “ ~ Al ~

“This is my first book about Elves and I was not disappointed. I didn’t know what to expect, but Ms. Abraham painted a beautiful picture in my mind with her words of Elves, beautiful villages and woodland forest. I was taken on an enchanted journey, were I met amazing an sometimes funny Elf characters, that I wanted to know more about. I felt like I was actually there in the story watching Gabriel and Eden’s love develop and grow. What a wonderful couple. Their are a few twist and surprise’s in the story that I didn’t see coming and at time I was wondering how is Ms.Abraham going to pull it all together, but she did!! This is a very well written story. WELL DONE MS. ABRAHAM!!! I highly recommend this book and I can’t wait for the next book in The Elven Chronicles!!!” ~ Edwina ~

“I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It’s a great fantasy, one that I recommend to anyone who loves the genre, and one that I definitively want to read the next book from.” ~ Mel, Journey with Words

” The feeling of a new world, of powerful beings with an unknown and interesting possible destiny, AN AMAZING MAIN COUPLE, lot of romance, a superb plot and much, much more. I will definitely keep reading this series, actually I’ll start next book right away.” ~ Valee ~

“This by far is one of the best Elven stories I have read in quite awhile. Gabriel sets out on a mission to find a mate for his king. instead he finds the beautiful Eden who is wild., lovely and happens to speak with trees! If you love Elves., this is a story for you. The style of Ms Abrahams writing will keep you addicted and wanting more. on to book two I go.” – Rose ~

Notes the author received:

“The first comment I got from anyone not involved, was that she read it as a favour, because she was a friend. She felt she owed me an apology for thinking I couldn’t tell a story at the time. She said she changed her mind quickly.”

“Elven Chronicles” Celebration – part 6

Hello and welcome!

Today is the 6th and last post leading to the release of the last book in the Elven Chronicles, Kings of the Empire by M. A. Abraham on February 16, 2017.

I along with the many fans of the Elven world have connected to one character or another, cheered them with each triumph and wept at each loss they suffered in the battle with the demon horde… or laughed at their antics.

One thing that stayed constant is their absolute love for their Life Mates and I am sharing the bonding scenes in each book which are my fave in all the books.

YOU ARE MINE, I AM YOURS, TOGETHER WE ARE ONE

Book 11 is…

INTO THE DEMONS LAIR

11 ITDL-meme.png

I really enjoyed reading this book and the cover is beautiful, fits their story. Their journey is not easy, full of danger and were some tense moments where I sat up and was chewing my nails… and then there are the lighter moments for which Ms. Abraham is known for, where the tension is broken and I found myself laughing out loud. I was so happy for Larien when it was revealed that Rothliel is her Life Mate, a very well-matched couple in every way.

    As they lay, looking into each other’s eyes and exchanging silly grins, he spoke.

    “Larien, you are mine.”

    Larien’s smile widened, as she ran a fingertip lightly over his lips and responded.  “Rothliel, you are mine.”

    “Larien, I am yours,” Rothliel purred smugly, deep in his throat.

    Larien’s response surprised him, as she grinned and admitted.  “You most certainly are,” She then added, after a moment of hesitation, “Rothliel, you are mine.

    They exchanged a long kiss, that threatened to reignite their passions, and then, in one voice, finished.  “Together, we are one.”

    Neither Rothliel nor Larien thought about the war, for the few hours they were left alone.  There was no one there to remind them that things were not as they should be in their world.

Larien’s sister, Alyssa finds her Life Mate too in this book, but like all Eagle Claw women, she is not easy to succumb to the bond yet LOL Be prepared for a few surprises especially one that reveals something that nobody knew about in the Elven Empire and that brings hope that the Elves will be triumphant over the Demon Horde. Happy reading!

KINGS OF THE EMPIRE

12 KOTE-meme.png

This book brings happy and sad emotions for me, happy because we finally find out the outcome of the war against the demon horde and sad because it is the end of the series and my ultimate book boyfriend, Lothrariel finally bonds with his Life Mate, S’Larea…
It is a huge book with lots of happenings but I am convinced that you will not be able to put it down…

AN EPIC ENDING TO AN EPIC SERIES.

    As Lothrariel wrapped his body around his Life Mate’s, S’Larea raised her eyelids to look into his eyes, and gave a small smile of satisfaction, as she repeated their bonding words.

    “Lothrariel, you are mine.”

    They were words Lothrariel was sure he would never tire of hearing, and he repeated his.  “S’Larea, you are mine.”

    “Lothrariel, I am yours,” S’Larea murmured.

    Lothrariel looked into S’Larea’s softly glowing eyes, so filled with her love, and smiled, as he answered.  “S’Larea, you are mine.”

    “Together, we are one,” they breathed as their lips touched and blended.

TRATCHARS

9 Tratchars-meme.png

The couple bonding in this book had a long time to wait until they were able to finally become Life Mates… and she had to learn the hard way that some rules are not meant to be broken.

    Ennacas swallowed and bowed to the stronger will.  She knew the Great Guardian was right and it was only a matter of time before she would give in anyway.  She also couldn’t think of a more fitting place for them to say their words of bonding than in front of the Free Land’s Talisman. 

    Endiku and Ennacas moved to face each other and, while they were still kneeling, they joined hands as they exchanged glances.  Ennacas looked contrite and Endiku looked sympathetic.  There was no smugness in either of their expressions, and this was something Ennacas decided she could accept.  Endiku spoke first.

    “From the moment my eyes met yours, I have loved you.  Ennacas, you are mine.”

    “I have waited my whole life for this moment,” Ennacas admitted, before adding.  “Endiku, you are mine.”

    “Ennacas, I am yours, body, mind and soul.  I place all that I am in your keeping.”  Endiku moved to the next stage.

    “You humble me with your gift, my heart swells with pride that you would place such faith in me.  I will never bring you shame, I will fight by your side, I will guard your back.  I will be true to the trust you have placed in me and in return I give you everything that encompasses who I am, and place it under your protection.  Endiku, I am yours, and will remain so throughout eternity.”

    As one they continued, “Together, we are one, may we never be parted.”

    Endiku lowered his face to Ennacas’ and kissed her, long, lingeringly and with all the sweetness he felt for his love.  As their lips parted he gave her a promise.  “I will make up for last night later.”

    Ennacas, with eyes that sparkled mischievously, replied.  “Promises, promises, I think you are stuffed with hot air.”

    “You may find that the wait was worth the effort,” Endiku teased.

EARWEN’S SONG

10 EarwenSong-meme.png

Make sure you stock up on tissues… This story is vying for first place with “Return of the Legend”, book 5, for me. I’be been wanting to read Eöl’s story from the time he appeared in the series, larger than life warrior, protector, with a dry sense of humour that made me crack up. I am glad fate choose Eärwen for his Life Mate. I hope you will take the journey with them, it is worth it.

    “I don’t deserve you,” Eöl declared.

    Eärwen chuckled, as she responded, “I know, but your are stuck with me anyway.”

    “Eärwen, you are mine,” Eöl spoke formally.

    “Eöl, you are mine,” Eärwen responded.

    “Eärwen, I am yours,” Eöl replied.

    “Eöl, I am yours,” Eärwen agreed.

   “Together, we are one,” they finished.

    “About time,” Eden spoke, as she walked into the room with their baby nestled in her arms.

    Eärwen’s expression grew soft and tender, her eyes glowing with love, as she held out her arms to take the child from her mother.

    As Eden settled the baby into the cradle of his mother’s arms, she smiled, as much at the look on Eöl’s face as the overall picture they made together, nestled in her daughter’s bed. [….]

    “Eöl, I would like you to meet our son.”

    “Our son,” Eöl echoed in wonder.

     Eöl was completely oblivious to the steady stream of tears coming from his eyes.  A son, they had created a miracle and he hadn’t even known about it.

Book 7 is…

LUTHIEN’S SONG

7 LuthienSong-meme.png

There are two couples bonding in this book… an emotionally powerful story

KING INGWËR of the Grey Elven Kingdom mated to NÁTULCIEN, a Daughter of the Sun…

    “… as our family is with us, I suggest we complete our bond now.” Nátulcien decided.
    Ingwër’s smile widened as he took her hands in his and spoke. “My love, my soul has waited for you to be completed, I seek to speak the formal words of bonding with you. Is this also your desire?”
    “It is.” Nátulcien confirmed.
    “Nátulcien, you are my heart’s desire, the reason for my life and the light of my soul. I am yours.” Ingwër answered.
    “Ingwër, for you, I hold the light. May it burn forever bright in its guidance of yours, for you are he for whom I was created. Ingwër, I am yours.” Nátulcien promised.
    “I bring you honor, as I give the same to you and your faith in my love. Your presence is a gift the creator has granted to me and mine. I will guard your light and our love will make your essence stronger through this joining. Nátulcien, you are mine.”
    “Share my eternity as I will yours. Ingwër, you are mine.” Nátulcien spoke firmly.
    As they spoke, they grew closer, never once losing eye contact or releasing their handhold. As one, they spoke the final words. “Together, we are one.”
    Ainariël and Ailumn leaned back against their Life Mates and smiled as they watched the union between Ingwër and Nátulcien. They were happy for them. As far as they were concerned, there was nothing more important in an Elf’s life than the moment they were bonded with their Soul Mate. It was a defining moment and one that completed them through eternity. This was their belief, the foundation of their lives. They had found their Life Mates early in life, their father had needed to wait for his for some reason only known to the creator. They watched as the newly joined couple exchanged a passionate kiss and when the two drew apart Haldemir teased.
    “I bet the first child will be a boy.”
    Vandamir, to be obstinate, disagreed. “A girl.”
    Nátulcien blushed as she smiled and answered. “I am a Daughter of the Sun, just like Lúthien. We can only produce female offspring.”

GOLRADIR, former King of the Free Lands mated to LÚTHIEN, a Daughter of the Sun…

    As Lúthien stood before Golradir, he reached for her and quit singing so he could speak. The children continued to chant as they formed a ring around them. They smiled happily as they held hands and skipped around and danced in the morning light.
    “Come dance with me in sunshine my love. Share with me this moment and I will bring light and happiness to your soul.” Golradir repeated the words she had spoken to him the first time they had danced in the meadow.
    As Lúthien drew closer to Golradir, he took her into his arms and danced as they had many times before and she smiled into his eyes as he raised his voice to rejoin the song the children were still singing. She didn’t hear the voices of the adult Elves as the parents of the children added their voices to their offspring, and neither heard when more voices joined them, until the entire forest rang with the sound of the ancient Elven love song.
    Round and round Golradir whirled Lúthien as they laughed into each other’s eyes and he held her closer until she was pressed tight against him and his arms encircled her waist possessively. As she stretched up to kiss his lips lightly she replied.
    “I would dance with you in sunlight for all eternity.”
    “Your wish is my dream come true.” Golradir admitted as he stepped back slightly to take her hands in his so he could lift her fingers to his lips to deliver a tender kiss.
    Without breaking eye contact, Golradir spoke. “Come speak with me the words of bonding and I will share my life and love with you. Lúthien, I am yours.”
    “In sunshine I will bathe your soul and together we will share our light and love. Golradir, I am yours.” Lúthien spoke in response.
    “In your light I have found reasons for living. Lúthien, you are mine.” Golradir sounded the words that signaled the next stage of the bonding ceremony and his heart skipped a beat it felt so full.
    “In your love I have found completion. Golradir, you are mine.” Lúthien answered.
    As one they spoke the final words. “Together, we are one.”
    Golradir quickly lowered his lips to Lúthien’s and kissed her until they were both laboring for air. When he broke off the kiss, he grinned when the sound of other voices filtered through the haze he felt surrounded them and he spoke.
    “Lúthien, you have made me the happiest Elf in the world.”
    “Really?” Lúthien grinned back as she teased. “I think I know of a few ways of improving on that.”
    Those who could hear them laughed, sounding as if they knew something Golradir didn’t when he looked at Lúthien in askance at her statement.
    Lúthien smiled wider as she broke the news she had hoped to tell Golradir privately, but knew everyone else had already guessed.
    “You see the extra bright glow that seems to beam from me?” Lúthien asked.
    “Yes,” Golradir answered as he wondered what this was about. She had worn that extra light for a while he had noticed.

FOR THE KING AND ELVEN EMPIRE

8 FTKAEE-meme.png

There are no Life Mate finding each other in this boo, but there are lots of surprises…

Elendil, Gabriel, Eden, and their children are accompanying King Elrohir and his bride to the High Elven Kingdom, by invitation of his father, King Silas. What started off as a simple trip turns into a nightmare, as the children disappear while working in the forest. Eden and Gabriel are frantic. Where are their children? Why can’t they touch their life forces? They join their talents and go on a search, calling in every resource they can, but get no results. They reach out to the Empire for help, but that is quickly brought under control when Lothrariel arrives. Unfortunately, he didn’t get there quickly enough.

At Gabriel’s command, the Kings and Queens lead their armies into the High Elven Kingdom, but it is not Gabriel who will take command; it is Lothrariel. He has regained his ancient powers and searches for answers, but a power as ancient as his has hidden the answers. Who has done this? Why?

With their parents away, the children of the Light Elven Kingdom work behind the scenes to regain the freedom of their friends. There is only one Elf who can reach the children where they are; S’Larea. When they are finished, will the High Elven Kingdom be the same?

here is my review

Just when I thought the Elven Chronicles series cannot get better, M. A. Abraham surprised me yet again. Another amazing story that shows us that there is no greater power than the power of love, the love of a parent that will move heaven & earth to rescue a child in danger, the love of a Life Mate who will bring down ANY obstacle standing in the way of reaching their soul mate or the innocent, but fierce love of children that will reach past all imaginable bounds to help their loved ones. This story brought up a whole spectrum of emotions, but the happy feeling lingers long after.

Book 5 is…

RETURN OF THE LEGEND

5 ROTL-meme.png

There are two couples bonding in this book…

HALDEMIR, Price of the Free Lands and a Warrior mated to AINARIËL, Crown Princess of the Gray Elves…

  “Are you real, or a dream come to taunt my waking memories?”


    “I am your love,” Ainariël replied sounding her shock and disbelief. She was no less affected by the meeting than it appeared the Elf before her was. This meeting was exactly like her mother told her it would be like and she smiled shyly at the handsome Elf before her.


    Haldemir raised his left hand to gently connect with Ainariël’s cheek as she raised her lips to offer a kiss. He smiled as he continued to hold her gaze with his, and lowered his mouth to her slightly parted one. She placed her hands onto his chest and as their lips met she ran her palms up over his shoulders to wind her arms around his neck. Hers. He was her Life Mate.


    Haldemir could not believe his luck. He wound his arms around his Life Mate and drew her gently into his embrace. Here in his arms he held his future, the sole reason for his living. He kissed her as if she was the most precious being in the world, and in his world, she was. He had to tell her. As he raised his lips from hers he breathed out his words.


    “You are my everything.”


    Ainariël smiled as she replied. “As you are mine. My name is Ainariël.”


    “I am Haldemir.” He introduced himself.


    “Haldemir,” Ainariël breathed his name.

 “My most precious love. I am yours forever more.”


    Haldemir fought the urge to say the words of bonding that were burning through his conscious state. If was difficult to restrain the impulse when he knew she would accept and repeat them gladly. This, however, was not the right time. There were things he had to do before claiming her. He wanted to speak to her father first. He also wanted to introduce her to his father and Tári. It was important that their bonding was done properly. He wanted their parents blessings on their union. 

    Ainariël didn’t see things the same way as Haldemir did, and she was not willing to wait to claim her Life Mate.

 “Haldemir, you are mine.”
    Haldemir placed his fingers lightly against Ainariël’s lips to silence them as he explained. “This is not the right time my love. I will not deny you the full extent of the ceremony that will bind us but I would speak with your father before we exchange the words of bonding. It is important that we receive the blessings of those who brought us into this world so we can begin our life together as it was meant to be.”


    Ainariël understood. It would slow up the process slightly, but she could live with that. Her Life Mate stood before her, holding her in the circle of his embrace and for him she could do anything, would do anything.



[……]

    Ainariël blushed as she wrapped her arms around Haldemir’s chest and dug her face into the velvet hardness of his shoulder. Her warrior, and Life Mate, he was a maiden’s dream come to life, and he was hers. She looked up into his smiling face and as their shining eyes met, she spoke.

“Haldemir, I am yours.”


    Haldemir smiled wider as he answered: “Ainariël, I am yours.”


    “Haldemir, you are mine.” Ainariël claimed him.

    Haldemir responded with his own, “Ainariël, you are mine.”
    

To seal the words of bonding, they finished as one. “Together, we are one.”


    With a laugh of joy, Haldemir swooped Ainariël into his arms and swung her into a circle as he kissed her thoroughly. His. His bride and Life Mate, the fates had been kind.

VANDAMIR, Prince of the Free Lands and a Warrior mated to AILUMN, Princess of the Gray Elves…

    Haldemir had chosen to claim his bride in the newer, and more progressive fashion that most Elves were embracing. Vandamir found he could not do the same. He was not his brother. He was a scholar as well as a warrior and preferred the teachings of the ancients. He had a feeling his Life Mate felt the same way. He looked at the indecision written on her face, and decided it was time to say what he felt needed to be said. The words he carried in his heart and soul.


    “I come to you on bended knees and pray you will listen to what I say. My love has no room for pride. I reach to embrace you with all that I am. You are the light that brings life to my soul. My heart beats in the anticipation of your love. My mind needs to learn the depths of your knowledge. My eyes only seek the sight of your great beauty. Place your hands in mine and speak the words of bonding with me. Bring light to my life and soul. Bring everlasting completion to our essence.”


    Ailumn could only stare at the sight Vandamir made. She would never have thought that her Life Mate would share her romantic nature. She had gone to great lengths to hide that part of herself. Vandamir’s words could not and would not be denied. She stepped closer and slowly sunk to her knees before him as she reached out to place her hands in his.

 Her mother once had told her and her sister stories of gallant Elven Knights. She had spoke words such as Vandamir had. They were a declaration of the love, commitment and devotion of those knights to their ladies. They were words meant only for a Life Mate. Her romantic soul had absorbed the tales her mother had told like a sponge. As she had grown older, her mind had rejected the ballads. They were nothing but fairy tales meant for children. She was finding now that her heart had held onto her dreams of childhood despite her efforts to deny them. Fate had brought them to life for her in the form of an Elven Prince who had been born to someday be hers.

 Ailumn responded to Vandamir’s plea.

 “I place my hands in yours. In your tender care, I trust my body. My mind opens to the wonders you will teach me. My lips move to speak the words you seek as my soul leaps in joy, and the golden light of our bond thread shines brighter than the sun. Vandamir, you are my one true Life Mate. I am yours.”


    “Ailumn, I am yours.” Vandamir sounded amazed that she would respond as she had, or even as quickly.


    “Vandamir, you are mine forever more.”


    “Ailumn, you are mine.”
    

“Together,” their voices merged. “We are one.”


    As if to seal the vow, Vandamir cupped Ailumn’s face with his hands and kissed her with tender care. When the kiss ended, Ailumn wound her arms around him and rested a cheek against his shoulder. Before she could stop herself, she whispered a plea.

 “Never let me go. Hold me forever within the safe haven of your arms and heart.”


    “You have my vow, Ailumn. I will always be at your side. My sword is yours to command, my love will be yours forever more.” Vandamir replied.

KING’S DAUGHTER

6 KingsDaughter-meme.png

KING LIESSEN of the Dark Elven Empire and an Elven Wizard mated to AREDHEL, Princess of the Free Lands and an Elite Squad Warrior.

Their bonding is quite steamy 😉

    “Aredhel, you are mine.”
     Aredhel continued to gasp as she fought for air and sanity. She couldn’t let Liessen win or she would be lost forever. It was more than she could control. […] She felt his will take control and the words he demanded spill from her lips.
    “Liessen, you are mine.”
    “Aredhel, I am yours.” Liessen sounded his victory and he forced her eyes to connect with his.
    “Mine,” Aredhel’s mind acknowledged as she felt their souls merge as she spoke again.
“Liessen, I am yours.”
    “Together,” Liessen led Aredhel as he started the last words to complete the bonding and she joined.
    “Together, we are one.”
    Again Liessen allowed instinct to take over, as he possessed his Life Mate in body and soul. […] He felt her acceptance of what they were and the connection of their souls that would bind them from this time forward. He saw the glitter of tears in her eyes, but felt no remorse for what they meant, for they both knew this would be the final result of their meeting. He hadn’t thought it would come about as it did, but he wasn’t about to bemoan the fact that it had happened. They were one.
