Gareth refuses to go through the ritual, formally making him king, without his mate by his side.  He is aware that he caused a lot of the problems between him and Gen after the last battle.

The third book in the Heart’s Desire series, The Wizard King, picks up where Hecate’s Own ends.  The two remaining Beckett men are still battling their wolves and the need to find their mates.  In my opinion, The Wizard King is the best book of the series so far.

I had to laugh at the Wizard Court’s reaction to Gareth.  Mac was great, especially when he made no bones about helping Gareth rule, when the women on the Council decided that Gen would not make an acceptable Queen-Consort.  Gareth made no bones about the fact that Gen was there to stay, regardless what the rest of the wizards wanted.

The rest of Gen’s immediate family is up to their old tricks, trying to rule with an evil mage and destroy the Beckett’s besides.  The majority of characters from the previous books show up, along with a few new ones to help.  There are still two situations to be resolved, one with Gen’s family and one with the last Beckett man.

The chemistry between Gareth and Gen has grown and it is no surprise they burn up the pages once they get together.  Both have a few issues that need to be resolved, but things do work out.

The Wizard King is a fast paced book with lots of suspense.  I am looking forward to Daniel’s story as he is the last Beckett brother.
