Princess Arianna's brother is missing, lost in the dangerous brothels on Chombay. She can't find him alone so she hires a legend to help. When they meet, their heartstones glow. The legend -- the Rogue, a man called McTavish -- is her mate.
Decker's been studying McTavish from behind a desk for years. Catching him is his chance to earn a much-desired promotion in the Union Alliance. Then the Queen, Arianna's stepmother, who is responsible for the prince's disappearance, contacts him with a deal: find her son before McTavish does and use him as bait, and she'll make sure he gets that promotion. Except...
Decker can't stand her actions against her son and turns on the Queen. He contacts McTavish and Arianna to make a deal. The biggest surprise when they meet isn't that he plans to go through with it. It's that his quarry and the princess are his mates.
On the run from a vicious queen, the three must learn what can bond a princess, a law man, and a rogue...in order to save their lives and the throne.
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, male/male sexual practices, ménage (m/m/f).
Settler's Mine 6: The Rogue is action packed from beginning to end. This is an extremely sexually charged story with hot, steamy love scenes.
As a reader, you will not have any problem connecting to the characters and just falling for them. Arianna is sweet and loyal. McTavish is strong and capable of taking charge and getting things done. Decker is the straight laced guy just trying to do what he has been born to do. Together they each bring something different to the relationship that helps to balance them all as a unit. It was an enjoyable read getting to watch them accomplish this feat.
The evil queen is very easy to loath. She has a hand in the dark story line that surrounds Arianna’s brother. I thought the psychological aspect of that story line was handled very well.
As this was my first visit into Mechele Armstrong’s world, I felt she did a nice job of not leaving me, as the reader, in the dust. Instead, it just spurs me on to want to read the previous books.
The story overall leaves you hopeful that they will have their happily ever after.
