Climbing Stories

I love politics & I am a bit of a history buff. I have a weakness for romance & that includes erotic smut! I'm a serious reviewer, but I can read almost anything. A new genre or a deft writer can make a story sing.

The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland, #2) - Kristen Ashley 4-4.5 stars(arguably LOL)
September 2012 Update

5 months later and I think I got my thoughts on this one sorted. LOL

What to say to an author? One who makes you fall for a hero who does all of the following:

* says "bow to your king" while he is pounding away at the heroine
* makes it very difficult to escape him and has actions that border along stalkerific
* is dangerously aggressive, which means the heroine experiences some KRAZY and initially unforgivable sh*T!

This is what you say: "Mrs. Ashley, did you put some voodoo in that book or use some psychological technique? Because I think I've been hypnotized!"

I needed to reread this book with the help of some lovely ladies on an extensive buddy-read thread in order to digest the wild and contrary ride that is The Golden Dynasty.

In the end, I would say read the book.
Just check all [notions of cute chivalry, roses and politically correct/modern-day ethics of feminism and equal rights for women] at the door before you enter.

Within the Fantasyland series, The Golden Dynasty is like a strong uppercut to the jaw that is preceded and followed by a hug.
