Sierra Blacksmith is a woman of many passions and unrealized potential. Being the youngest daughter of a werewolf and a Fey is not always easy, not to mention the fact that her father is also the clan leader.
Sierra longs for a normal life. Just when she thinks things can’t get any worse, she discovers that her boyfriend is a two-timing Troll! He was a Troll, the sworn-enemy of her family, who would go to any lengths to get between her virgin thighs.
And if that wasn’t enough, Roman and Garth Doming, two hot strange men, walk into her life claiming to be her mates! They not only dominated both her thoughts and desires, but also introduce her to her third mate, a half demon and half fey.
Sierra has the weight of the world on her shoulders or at least it feels like it. I could understand and empathize with her angst with a protective and powerful family. And then she meets the brothers and the level of control over her life becomes enhanced as enemies seem to come out of the woodwork. Trinity Blacio did a wonderful job of articulated Sierra’s discontent. I could appreciate Sierra’s desire for normalcy even as her world became crazier. I enjoyed Sierra’s determination to make her men work for her in spite of fate. She wanted them to appreciate her in all her faucets even as she knew they were her future. I was impressed with her desires even if I couldn’t always agree with her decisions. Roman and Garth were strong alpha men and navigating the emotional mind field mating is is something both men struggled with. I could appreciate their struggle even as I enjoyed some of Sierra’s antics.
But with The Empress’ Rapture, Ms. Blacio did what I believe she does extremely well. She again gave us a new world full of rich detail. It was multi-layered and multi-dimensional. I enjoyed seeing the many components that lent itself to a series if Ms. Blacio so desires even as she gave us a story of love and acceptance.
