Having escaped her husband Sarin, a man she was forced into

Crissana is planning on presenting Rianna to her

With orders to withdraw from the war and return home, Prince
Tarn wants nothing more than to be with Rianna. When he
discovers his father is ill, he leaves her to follow while
he goes to his ailing father. When he learns of Crissana's
capture of Rianna, he must turn to the last man he ever
wanted to see. Sarin not only held Rianna against her will,

Now Tarn must put his trust in Sarin and join forces with

With a raging war as the backdrop, WILD KINGDOM brings to
mind movies such as King Arthur and Troy, but
I found the
story gets a bit convoluted with Rianna's character being
transported to so many different places and I never could
really figure out who was fighting who. I also found the
shoddy editing job did a lot to detract from the enjoyment
of the book. There were times where I had to re-read a

was being said. The saving grace for the book are the erotic
scenes Deanna Ashford writes in such delicious detail. If
hot scenes are your thing, this is definitely a book you'll
want to pick up.
Salacious excesses abound as war rages in the mythical
kingdom of Kabra. Prince Tarn is struggling to drive out the
invading army while his betrothed -- the beautiful Rianna --
has fled the fighting with the mysterious Baroness Crissana.
But the baroness is a fearsome and depraved woman, and once
they're out of the danger zone she presents Rianna as a
plaything to her warlord half-brother, Ragnor. In order to
rescue his sweetheart, Prince Tarn needs to join forces with
his old enemy, Sarin, whose capacity for perverse delights
knows no bounds.
