Kinked by Thea Harrioson






Two opponents must confront the cause of their obsessive fury in the latest Novel of the Elder Races…
 
As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she’s ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy’s incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own.
 
To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin’s mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion—culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.

Quintin is an interesting character with a different brand of baggage, and Aryal is actually they demesnes oldest “cougar”. Coming awake at the dawn of time allows for one to have developed their own way of doing things, and Aryal has done just that. Her relentless pursuit of Quentin’s head is marvellous, by the way she wants him dead not in her bed. Love this couple, I loved their interactions, the witty comebacks they throw at each other, the way they are physically strong enough to back the other up and not fret over who is stronger..
This book was a breath of fresh air, there is no creature in heaven or earth that can compare to a Harpy with a score to settle. I take nothing away from the strong supremely confident Quentin he is her match in every way. I wish I knew Aryal because like I heard an Elf say, “I’m girl crushing on her right now”!
Heroines should throw the first punch sometimes and they most definitely should be able to hit as hard as a guy! This book is full of an acerbic wit, punches that come out of nowhere and to heroes that are so fun to read. Brava Ms Harrison, job well done, book well written! This is a book reader’s will devour!
