He’s the enemy. Our union is forbidden. That’s why I have to have him.
Liliwen has all she could wish for, yet her sheltered life as Princess under the Seas leaves her unfulfilled. She goes rogue and travels to the enemy’s territory. When she sees him, she knows he’s a rare specimen. A soldier with many a battle scar. She ought to flee… but the challenge is on. Can she chisel through his defenses and seduce the enemy? Even though she risks losing her heart, or even her life, in the process?
She’s the enemy. I ought to capture the spy and throw her in the dungeon.
Teaq, as General of Black Isle’s armies, has always led a life of all work and no play. Being passed over as his younger brother took the throne left him disgruntled and bitter. All this changes when he finds a mermaid in the waters surrounding his territory. Something about her enchants and awakens feelings in him which he never thought he’d have. A ray of hope lighting up the darkness in his heart.
Their meeting makes them rethink their allegiances. The war that has raged between their people, seems nothing more than a pointless squabble with neither beginning nor end in sight. But in a world so dangerous and fragile, beauty rarely lasts. If discovered, their love would spell the end for both of them.

Shifters, magic and relatable characters; set in a mysterious, distant land, where anything seems possible, and yet all its inhabitants hold dear could be destroyed in an instant.

Our Review :
Liliwen and Teaq are enemies – or at least their people are. Liliwen is the king’s daughter; she’s been told not to leave the palace but she wants so badly to know what else is out there. She sneaks away one day and swims all the way to the Black Isles – where she just happens to meet a soldier. She is immediately drawn to Teaq and feels a connection to him. Such a connection that she continues to swim out to meet him, even though it is dangerous for both of them if they were caught. She is not the only one getting attached; Teaq knows that he shouldn’t trust the Mermaid but he can’t stay away from her. When she is seen & captured by his people – he has to decide to take action to make sure she stays his, or give up since their people will never allow them to be together.
If you had previously read Claimed by the King then you will revisit the characters in this book. This book takes place at the same time as the prior so it can be read as a stand-alone, if you haven’t had a chance to read Claimed by the King yet. This book was great for a day read – It felt like a quick read, but only because the pacing felt fast. This book had quite a few moving parts, and there was action, budding romance, and even a duel. I was excited with how the ending went but I also can’t wait to see what happens next at the Black Isles.
DON’T MISS BOOK #1 IN THE SHIFTERS OF BLACK ISLE SERIES!
Abandoned by her people, a young woman was being sent to her doom.
Kelly was going to be a prisoner; a slave. At least that’s what she thought as she waited for the mysterious giants that lived on the Black Isles to claim her. A human sacrifice, once every eight years. That’s what it took to keep mankind safe from these savages.
The human would ensure the survival of his bloodline. Whether he liked it or not.
Broc’s reign as King of the Black Isles had lasted seven years already. That was a long time to go without a queen and therefore, an heir. He knew what he had to do; to claim the human offering and make her his own.
When they met, it changed everything. A glimmer of hope, even of love, in unexpected places. But life on the Black Isles was far from simple. And there were powerful secrets, yet to be uncovered, that could change everything yet again.
Claimed by the King is the first in Lorelei Moone’s brand new fantasy romance series, Shifters of Black Isle. Shifters, magic and relatable characters; set in a mysterious, distant land, where anything seems possible, and yet all its inhabitants hold dear could be destroyed in an instant.
