Queen Ximena falls for her bodyguard, and Aegis Strike Leader, Zefirino. The two of them
have been “companions” since they were small children. Their attraction for each
other has been hampered by her duty as the Queen, and his duty as her trusted
bodyguard. Things begin to spark between them when the Queen is attacked at her
palace (by who or what I’ll leave as a surprise).
At first, the palace setting seemed a little reminiscent of other sci-fi palace settings, but
as the story unfolded I was taken into an interesting, and action packed world that was
believable. The author does a great job of allowing her readers to “see” the bond
Ximena and Zefirino have to each other while being tested. The love story between the
Queen and Zefirino is well done, and the sex sizzling. The two had the right amount of tension,
desire, and mischief between them. Zefirino is the perfect devoted hero, and Ximena is a great heroine with the added responsibility of being a good leader to her people.
Of course there is so much more to this book, but as my style, I like to leave less said and more to the readers to discover. Overall, I enjoyed reading Devotion, and believe this book should be a recommended read.
