Author's Website

Six years ago, Kamen Itenu was made the Regent of the Sunjaa nation, ruling for a boy-king, and thus became the most powerful man in all the west. But Kamen is not just the Regent. He is also a man who has lost his first love, and he has never expected his heart to kindle again.

Ajalira is a woman trapped, one who, for honor's sake, sold herself to the Red Lotus Guild to be made into a courtesan and assassin. When war sends the Regent to the Guild, Ajalira's honor kindles Kamen's broken heart, but can even the love of the Regent protect Ajalira from her past? The war threatens to tear them apart, and Ajalira must choose between her past and her love, while her honor, more precious than her life, hangs in the balance.

My Review -

A Lotus and the Regent is the second book that follows the the keys characters that were first introduced to readers in The Soldier's Louts. This time it is six years later after the first book and focuses on Kamen and his love for an Ausir forced into becoming a Lotus. I have to say I am glad that the author gave us this story because at the end of The Soldier's Lotus the reader was left wondering what would happen to Kamen. He proved to be a kind and loving person who went through so much heartache that you wished for his happily ever after.

I truly enjoyed how the author was able to tie in the other books in the series together and give the reader an understanding regarding the amount of time that had pasted from one book to the next. Even though each book deals with a different tribe they are all interconnected and the books provide a consistent flow in the passage of time (in this case hundreds of years have past from the time of Love Comes Twice).

At first I didn't like Kamen in The Solier's Lotus as he tried to break up the relationship that developed between Darien and Saeri, but in this book he redeemed himself. Kamen proved to be a loving, kind, loyal and protective lover who would do anything to protect the one he loves.

I found Ajalira to be a truly tortured individual who had to endure, in her eyes, shame and defilement all in the name of honour. Despite all the loneliness and pain that she endured she never gave up and kept her spirit to fight on which was very endearing.

The loving relationship that developed between the two of them was just that: full of love and acceptance. The two not only found with each other what they had both been seeking, but also learned that despite all the obstacles that were thrown in their way that through perseverance and dedication their love would survive anything. Just a word of warning this book includes some very intense, hot scenes featuring some bondage, anal play and anal sex.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy stories set in far away places where loves endures hardship and flourishes in the arms of a lover completely devoted to showing the other they are worthy of love. That is what you will find with the love between Kamen and Ajalira.



  1. Great review. I haven't read this book but it does sound like one I would like.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
