Talon loves his job and his family and wouldn’t change a thing.  Okay, maybe one thing.  The fact that he is a Vermithian means he can get pregnant and, since that is one thing he wants to avoid at all cost, he limits his sexual relationships to one night stands and all the protection he can find.  When his latest job finds him crash landing light-years away from his scheduled stop, the rest of his life starts to spin out of control.

The Alpha King is the newest book by author Viktor Alexander.  This is a second edition and has been greatly expanded, so I would urge those who have already read the first edition to think about repurchasing. 

The Alpha King is the story of two young men affected by the actions of their parents. Talon, a young man who has no knowledge of his past, is grateful for the love of his adoptive parents and sister.  He is also a bit of a free spirit whose actions, as well as what comes out of his mouth, made me laugh at times.  Blaze is the king of his people and takes his role seriously, sometimes too much.  He carries around a lot of guilt when it comes to his younger brother and worries about repairing the damage he has caused. 

You would think the free spirit and responsible royal would have little in common, yet they click from the beginning.  While some might think that has a lot to do with the mate bound, it also has to do with the men themselves.  Blaze and Talon balance each other out, allowing them to grow into their roles as Alpha King and Alpha Queen.

As you would expect, the relationship between these two is the main focus of the story.  It is full of ups and downs, with twists thrown in, that readers may or may not see coming, yet there is a lot of secondary plot lines woven into this first book of the Passion’s Hero series.  I am curious as to how each of the future stories will play out and hope we do not have to long to wait before we see book two. 

The Alpha King is a good starting point for those readers who have not yet tried anything by this author and, if you are a fan already don’t forget to pick up this second edition as the expansion is worth it.
