Princess Aladee is the prisoner of the bloodthirsty tyrant Tordanuk. On a daily basis, the evil sorceress, Shivrane makes her life miserable. But she draws strength from the two Guardians of Zalvanus, Bax’Taran the Brave and Yevlor the Swift, who share in her fate.

There seems to be no way out of the prison, but Shivrane’s own curse will be used as the weapon to help them finally regain their freedom. Their freedom brings hope for a better future for themselves and all of mankind.

Embracing the Tiger is the third story in the Valiant Hearts series. The three have endured pain and suffering that most would have succumb to but thanks to the guardian training and the princess’ determination, their wills would not be broken. Their time imprisoned has given the three an opportunity to develop feelings for one another. The action scenes drew me in and had me thirsty for purple blood, while the erotic encounters between Aladee and her men are written with passion and as a testament to how deeply their love flows. There was one scene where I couldn’t understand how the men thought Aladee would be safer without them by her side. It boggled the mind for a moment, because the enemy was everywhere and relentless. But thankfully they saw the error of their thoughts before it was too late. I found Embracing the Tiger to be an interesting addition to the series and look forward to reading the next release.
