Book Spotlight for Intimate Betrayal by Houston Havens (Review)

As a reader who enjoys steamy reads with compelling storylines I've found the Psychic Ménage series a compelling collection of books thus far.  Therefore there's reason to rejoice with the recent release of Intimate Betrayal by Houston Havens, the fourth installment in the series.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of this book, along with my impressions of it, and then add it to your bookshelf.

Kindise Wyatt escapes her Star Rider captor and returns to Earth. With the help of a sexy Old World Mole and his mysterious friend, she's determined to uncover the whereabouts of her lover. Instead, she finds nothing but betrayal and her captor in pursuit.
On the lam after betraying his evil ruler, ex-Dirt Dweller and drifter Jaden Valenti confirms his name is on a hit list. Finding what he believes will be safety amongst the Airbornes, he recreates himself and hides his past until trouble walks back into his life in the name of Kindise Wyat, the woman he was ordered to assassinate and didn't.
Due to the obsessions of a Fae woman Sori gave up his hard earned royal title and left his homeland of Elfame. Love is the furthest thing from his mind until he is sent in Jaden's place to pick up some cargo...human cargo in the form of Kindise Wyatt. He feels the Fae magnetism of his soulmate in her. Problem is; she's in love with someone else.
Will Jaden fulfill his orders to kill Kindise and get his name removed from the list, or will his secret be exposed and betray the friendship he has with Sori? Does Sori help Kindise find her lover, or will a love between them have a chance to flourish before a fatal attraction and a determined captor rip their love asunder?
Will Kindise find true love or will betrayals at every turn crush the fight out of her? Can she find her inner strengths to keep fighting and lead The Freedom Fighters to defeat the Dirt Dweller elites, once and for all?




A battle is still waging between Dirt Dwellers and Airbones and readers get quickly caught up in all the previous machinations along with compelling new twists and turns courtesy of Ms. Havens' fast-paced storytelling in this fourth installment in the Psychic Menage series.  In to this gritty world of have and have-nots, loyalties are put to the test and love can be fleeting as the battle for supremacy gets deadlier and brings in new players to muddy an already bloody battlefield.

This post-apocalyptic world, with its class distinctions, is vividly depicted and inhabited by a colorful cast of characters that quickly immerses readers.  Triads play an important part too in survival as genetic abnormalities have led to a scarcity of women.  The triad in this story gets put through the wringer as their lives are on the line from a lover betrayed and a battle to claim the woman put into their hands for safekeeping.  It's a trio that's larger than life with two friends battling over a woman who loves another which leads to a journey of truths, lies, and ultimately love.  Jaden is a human assassin whose life is on the line courtesy of his former leader's corruption and inability to kill a new target.  His Fae friend Sori has secrets of his own, but together they've sworn to protect the blindly loyal Kindise and her heart of gold.  Their romantic battle for her heart is playful, funny, and sexy as it's a human's sex appeal against a Fae's magical abilities with Kindise being the recipient of their sensual tug of war that leads to super sexy scenes with surprising heart.  Kindise is sweet and devoted to the one she gives her heart to.  She's not afraid to speak her mind or rush head-on into action.  It all makes for an exhilarating thrill ride as truths are revealed and friendship and love combines to keep this triad's burgeoning commitment safe.

Ms. Havens nicely balances the fun and flirty romance where each character balances the others out with the machinations of war to keep readers on the edge of their seats.  The vividly depicted worldbuilding satisfies old readers while bringing in new ones as this world is cleverly crafted with unforgettable characters and a multi-layered story arc that's best consumed by reading each installment in order.  Matters of war, the secrets and lies used to get ahead, ultimately make for a story full of compelling twists and turns that culminate in an exciting ending that will have you counting down the days until the next installment.

My rating for this is an A-.
