Blurb: For some, existence without their mate might seem like the end of their world--for the members of Verdantia’s Tetriarch, it would be.

Love triangles often create disastrous relationships, but the unlikely members of the Tetriarch face worldwide disaster without the successful bonding of their trio.The inhabitants of the sentient planet, Verdantia, are poised on the precipice of extinction following a brutal invasion by an off-world, nomadic horde. Verdantia’s capital, Sylvan Mintoth, must have its failing energy shield restored, or the planet is doomed. The Elders know the shield can draw energy from only one thing—a very arduous and grueling coupling of two specific people who were pre-chosen by the planet Herself and promised by prearranged marriage contract.

Conte Camliel Aristos deTano, Ari, has long spurned the marriage forced upon him. His contractual bride, Princess Fleur Constante, is the beautiful future queen. She was but six years old when the contract was signed. Though young and inexperienced, she is willing to risk everything, including her own sanity, to save her planet.

Verdantia draws strength from the duo, but the sentient planet whispers to Ari that a third is necessary – Ari’s aide de camp, Visconte Doral deLorion, an angelically handsome, skilled assassin who silently surrendered his heart to Ari long ago.

The trio struggles to make this surprising partnership harmonious, pushing through pride, scars of past abuse, fears of inexperience and distrust. To save Verdantia, they must overcome their individual weaknesses and realize their full potential. 

Only the tetriarch and their combined synergy, can harness Verdantia’s immense power to shield its citizens from invasion.

Review:  Ari was coerced into agreeing to a prearranged marriage when I he was 16 because of his genes,  so he ran away from his world and became  a very notorious military leader with the aid of his second ( and the man he wanted more than anything but couldn’t have who also has genetics and a very bad past he escaped from also.) Doral is also in love with his captain but its forbidden for them since they are  coworkers. The planet is about to be destroyed and the only way is for Ari to go to the princess and perform the great rite a sexual magic. The princess is the woman he is  signed to marry and if he does this rite and she doesn’t die he can be released from his contract. The princess is young and still likes a lot of preparation for the rite but she is brave, and when she sees Ari its love at first site she wants him though she doesn’t know about the contract.
So you get the gist here of the big love triangle. I found this story very intriguing and pretty well written the characters were very well developed and likeable. All of them very sexy. The world and the plight was intriguing though the sex Magick was a bit but there but hey, it’s hot so who cares LOL.
The only thing I didn’t really like and I find a lot in Sci fi stories is the names and planet names and made up names for things. These got a bit foreboding as I had to try to figure out what they meant and pronouncing them and they were used very frequently, but I finally got lost in the story and got past all that. I loved this story and definitely ill read the next one!

Recommendations: If you like ménage, good threesomes that focus on all three people, a fabulous romance, futuristic worlds, and very hot sex, this one is for you.
