The Emperor’s Wolf by J.C. Owens
Reviewed by Lisa
The war between Astoria and Tranaden destroyed so many lives. Jaden was a young soldier at the time. He watched in horror as his captain was ripped apart by the Commander of the Tranaden army. The final blow was being separated from his young sister Yamina as they were sold into slavery.
Survival is the name of the game for the renamed Black. The only thought keeping him alive is the hope of one day being reunited with Yamina. Black endures life as the favorite in Mistress Mailyn’s harem with a blank stare and a strong fist. His mind, as well as his body, bears the scars of his life in the harem.
The harem slaves are taken along when the Mistress goes on a business trip that takes them through Tranaden’s borders. A visit to the palace finds Black kneeling beside his owner during an audience with Dersai, the Emperor of Tranaden. Black/Jaden is overcome with shock when he realizes that the Commander and the Emperor are one and the same. The man who ruined his life sits before him and for some unknown reason the Emperor remembers Jaden. Horrified, he finds his ownership changing hands to the one he views as the devil incarnate. It’s up to Jaden to figure out what the Emperor wants, whether he will succumb to his new master’s desires, but more importantly, find his sister regardless of the consequences.
At times deeply emotional and then downright sexy, The Emperor’s Wolf is pure romantic entertainment. Filled with drama, suspense, and a fascinating love story, The Emperor’s Wolf packs a powerful punch. Jaden is a young man forced through circumstances beyond his control to develop into so much more than he ever thought capable when confronted with cruelty, deceptions, and true love. Dersai suffers for his people during times of conflict in such an unnatural way, yet he’s actually a gentle man and a great ruler. Their unique romance has scorching hot scenes of lovemaking, tender moments, and such hurtful miscommunication. I Joyfully recommend The Emperor’s Wolf because reading it once just won’t be enough.
