Summary

Jalia hasn't ever played a game she can't win.  

The promise of a queen's ransom is too much for lifelong gambler Jalia to pass up. The untouched planet of Minos is rumored to be so wealthy, one can walk along the beach and pluck diamonds from the sea. According to the contract, all she has to do to win is solve a few puzzles and navigate a labyrinth or two. Simple! But she didn't read the fine print....

She isn't competing to win treasure, she's competing to become queen of Minos. Marriage to the king: mandatory. A king who sends men to their deaths by the dozen kills anyone who dares speak against him, and his people live in fear of his wrath.  

Bound by the contract, Jalia has no choice but to try or die while the challenges grow evermore deadly. Even if she wins, marrying the monstrous king of Minos may be a fate worse than death.  

Contains mature themes.

Unespected loved this!!

I had never heard of this author before but the story sounded interesting and I thought what the heck, let me try it. It ended up being very entertaining and a gripping story. There are some details that I feel were left out and I was a bit confused at times, but for the most part it's an amazing story with lots of adventure, tons of humor, and lots of romance. You can't help but fall in love with the love story between Dega and Jalia. I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves fantasy romance novels.

I truly enjoyed this book, there were funny moments, crazy moments, scary moments, and down right hilarious moments. I loved the characters in this book, good and bad. The romance between the MC was AWESOME and so SWEEEET. In the end everything just fell in place and surprising characters played such a surprising role. I mean really surprising. Secrets were amazing and once again surprising...lol great book. I would soooooo reccomend this book to others.

Yo the author, THANK YOU.

Excellent story told extremely well!

With perhaps the exception of one of the Male voices not exactly sounding like one would imagine a Bull's voice to sound, this was a brilliant version of what has become one of my favorite Minotaur stories!

A different but entertaining romance!

I enjoyed this audiobook very much. The characters were interesting and made me want to keep listening to the story. The setting is the planet Minos, where the king ants to find a wife. His advisor goes out and brings back a group of different alien women who will compete to become queen. The heroine is a human who signed up thinking she was winning a valuable prize, only to find out the conditions after she arrives. The king is gorgeous, but the contestants are problematic. The contests consists of 9 maze challenges, with each one becoming more difficult. The king wants her to win, but can’t just stop the contest and declare her queen.
This story has action, humor and sexy bits. Narration was well done, but I think a male voice could have added to its overall appeal.
