Rain, a she-wolf, was seduced by three brothers, werewolves of Clear Water village—Zurk, Arran, and Rander. She had been chosen by Colcu, the alpha, for mating. Colcu discovers that she gave herself to the lesser wolves and, in a fit of rage, he sentences her to death.
Colcu chases her through the Daribu Forest, but one human knight from Jarna, Thane Ragnirak, stumbles upon the two wolves fighting in the forest. Thane dispatches the larger wolf, Colcu, and saves Rain, unaware that she is a werewolf.

Thane has lost all that he cares for in a surprise invasion from the barbarian hoard, and he is now the sole survivor—the last knight.
Soon the heat begins to build between the she-wolf and the human while lost in the forest, searching for the road to Jarna. His plans to warn the kingdom of the impending invasion are put on hold as he discovers the pleasures of the she-wolf.
A Siren Erotic Romance



Review:

I have to say when I first started reading THE LAST KNIGHT OF JARNA, I felt like there were two stories going on. And at first, that made it hard for me to follow. And truly maybe there is more than one story going on, for the possibility of a sequel. But once I got back on track, the story flowed for me and I fell in love with the main characters Rain and Thane.

Rain is innocence all wrapped up into a beautiful werewolf, who finds herself the object of lust for three werewolf brothers Zurk, Arran and Rander from her village. Needless to say, she has had dreams of being with them for as long as she can remember, but she knows she is promised to the Alpha Colcu. Not much protesting goes on, on her part against the brothers as they introduce her to first sexual experience (which I have to say that for an innocent, she sure caught on fast). It was definitely a hot scene that led into the Alpha finding them and sentencing her to death and get this, the males got sentenced to having to leave in shame for a year (yep, it fits the historical timing of how women were treated perfectly).

Enter the hero. Thane rescues Rain, and he didn't know that she is a Werewolf. Thane is handsome and all hard-bodied, the epitome of a knight in shining armor. I loved him. He had a realness and an honesty about him even though he had killed many men, and you could still feel that he was honorable. He saves Rain from Colcu again, not knowing she is a werewolf. When the fact is finally made known, the two cannot help their growing attraction for the other.

Hot and heavy sexual need blossoms and the two cannot help themselves. Which in turn also blossoms into a love for each other, and that finds Rain at a crossroads battling what she should feel and what she is feeling.

Now with the other characters that come into play such as the three brothers Zurk, Arran and Rander, at first I wondered why their story needed to be told beyond the fact that they mated with Rain. Alexis Martin leads you through an entertaining romp of sex and intrigue and you come to find out why all the other characters are mentioned and needed.

I liked this book and I would recommend it. It has Werewolves, Vampires, Succubi within its 118 pages and make for a fun read.

Four Stars for an exciting historical paranormal tale.
