Fief Lord of Ilmaren, Reijir Arthanna comes to the rescue of Naeth Orosse, the same youth who had aided Reijir in an earlier tavern brawl. Discovering the badly beaten Naeth is an orphan, as well as realizing their mutual attraction, Reijir becomes Naeth’s guardian. During the years spent living in the same household, the attraction between Reijir and Naeth blossoms into true love. 

By Chance Met is the third book in the outstanding Chronicles of Ylandre. The particularly intricate plot blends emotional chaos, brawls plus exceptionally sensual lovemaking scenes into a distinctively engaging world. The setting is the fantasy planet of Aisen, populated by a race of hermaphrodites. The theme’s focus is the social structure along with the reasoning for maintaining the original mating arrangement. Naere is the origin of the hermaphroditic race. Through colonizing, Naere bred with the native Gelra. True Bloods are the ruling class whose ancestors kept their breeding with the Gelra to a minimum and retained much of the physical strength, endurance and most of the psychic gifts of the Naere. Half Blood’s ancestors bred indiscriminately with the Gelra, which resulted in the diminishment or disappearance of many of the characteristics of the Naere in present day generations. The storyline highlights how Reijir, a cousin to Ylandre’s Monarch Rohyr Essendri, and Naeth, a Half Blood, liberated themselves from the oppressing division of social rank to obtain a true bonding of their souls. 

Eresse has created an absolutely amazing, thoroughly enjoyable romance. The incredible dual-gendered characters in By Chance Met are enormously heartwarming. I look forward to the next installment of this superb series.

This series is best read in sequence.
