Details: ARC received from the author

The blurb:

“In the kingdom of Teruna, the red-cloaked Seruani teach the Terunans the art of love. Taken from their homes at seventeen to be trained, they are shunned as outcasts by society and considered the lowest of the low. So when Prince Tanish falls in love with the Seruan Feyar, the man who took his virginity and the only one to share his bed, he is not about to declare that love. No one can ever know, because the consequences would be too painful to consider for both of them. 

When the king of Vancor visits Teruna, he promises that his son, Prince Sorran, will marry Prince Tanish to solidify the alliance between the two kingdoms, with the proviso that the virginal Sorran is instructed in the art of pleasing his husband-to-be. When Tanish’s father chooses Feyar to be this instructor, the lovers decide Prince Sorran must be taught that this is to be a marriage in name only…. 

A resentful prince, unwilling to share his lover. 

A resentful Seruan, unwilling to share his prince. 

And the shy prince whose very nature sparks changes in the lives of all those around them. 

Teruna is about to change forever.

My thoughts:

Just when you thought you had an author sussed....Yes that.

This may well be one of the sweetest stories I have ever read. A Bond of Three reminded me of a fairytale, up to and including the happily ever after. It’s the sort of story you read with a permanent soft smile on your face.

Tanish, Feyar and Sorran are adorable and cute characters. I loved the idea of the Seruan, a sexual expert who shares his or her gift with others almost as much as I loved the idea of two princes marrying in order to forge an alliance. It is nice to read an almost angst free story every once in a while, a story in which love does indeed conquer all and good gets rewarded.

Some of the story felt a bit too good and too easy. That however didn’t lessen the enjoyment I got from spending time with these three young men. Their interactions were touching and their sex scenes were both off the page hot and endearingly charming.

I’m not entirely sure what else to say about this book. I smiled while I read it and felt satisfied when I finished it. As always K.C. Wells told a good story well. Her characters, as I’ve come to expect, managed to grab a hold of me and keep me captive until they’d reached their happy ending. If you’re in the mood for a guaranteed ‘feel good’ read, you could do a lot worse than picking up ‘A Bond of Three’.
