Thrown together, forced to fake a relationship both their lives depend on…
To be a dragon rider is all Nykin ever wanted. Destined from birth, and forged by magic at the age of twenty-one, he earns his place in the king’s army. But it’s not the only thing he dreams of. Lusting after the king maybe be foolish, but that doesn’t stop Nykin’s pulse from racing whenever he’s near.
Ryneq always knew he’d rule Torsere one day, but never expected it to happen quite so soon. The death of his parents forced him into a role he wasn’t prepared for and a romantic attachment is low on his list of priorities. Yet still Nykin manages to catch his interested and hold it.
With his land under threat from the lowland armies, an alliance with the elves seems Ryneq’s only option to protect the kingdom. But seeing it to fruition is fraught with danger and even the best laid plans can be thwarted. With hope all but lost, Nykin embarks on a deadly mission, willing risk everything for his duty and his king.
Featuring forced proximity, fake relationships, all wrapped up in a romantic fantasy full of suspense and intrigue. Capture is the first book in the Torsere trilogy.
Previously published with Dreamspinner Press.
I enjoyed Capture (Torsere Book 1) by Annabelle Jacobs. Not usually a fan of books that require a glossary, Capture did not disappoint and the book was easy to follow. The King of Torsere, Ryneq and dragon rider Nykin made an imposing pair. Circumstances brought the two men together for the greater good of the kingdom and the safety of all, allowing them to also explore their attraction and act upon it.
I enjoyed the personalities of both Ryneq and Nykin, but especially the dragon rider. Fimor the bonded dragon to Nykin stole the show with his humor and wit. Slightly temperamental, the dragon added to the overall storyline and gave the reader a greater glimpse between rider and dragon.
Ms. Jacobs’s world was unique with twists and turns and open ended to allow the evolution of the subsequent books. As a fan of Ms. Jacobs, I look forward to reading the remainder of the series.
