Title: Warlord’s Mercy
Author: Cynthia Sax
Series: Chamele Barbarian Warlords #5
Tolui is a Chamele clone who has been leading his fellow clones in a stealth battle to control the Chamele sector. When he crashes on Chamele 4 he is rescued by the tiny human Lea, who changes his plans of leaving immediately.
I was surprised by how much I liked this couple. Lea is a garment fabricator who has been hiding from a group of males trying to capture her. She risks capture to help Tolui after his ship crashes. The lust between these two is instant and strong. Lea is a kind hearted woman but she wasn’t afraid to defend herself or Tolui if necessary. She ended up being perfect for Tolui, and the rest of the clones, because she tempers his aggression and shows him a different perspective on life.
Tolui has been portrayed as the bad guy from the beginning but some of his actions have shown that he isn’t all bad. He is a protective and aggressive Chamele warrior but his past has taught him not to be judgmental of differences. He accepts everyone and that makes him a great leader.
Overall, this was a great fated mate romance. There was a lot of steamy sex, a lot of emotional connection, and some action as well.
