To Collar and Keep ARC: Review

By Stella and Audra Price

Book two in the American Satyr Series
A surrender to the unknown has never been sexier.

Olanis, the summer holiday is upon the Satyr clans once more and it is the time for Harlequin, prince of the Rummer clan, to claim his first and only female, the Grecian Satyr princess Arabella, sight unseen.

Unsure of what kind of woman his clan had brokered for him, he is both interested in the woman that would wear his collar, and nervous that she won’t meet his standards. His female has to rival him in all things, and his hopes of that coming true are slim and none.

Arabella craves two things, finishing her education, and being claimed by her Satyr. An anomaly in the Satyr world, Arabella was afforded opportunities other princesses weren’t. Now, in a foreign land she is given over to the Prince she was promised to, and she couldn’t be more nervous. What's a girl to do when you’re being gifted to a man you have never seen?

Harley is a commodity to the Rummer clan, one that his father plans to exploit regardless of his son’s wishes. When he gives Harley an ultimatum, Harley and Bella have two choices-agree to the terms or rebel.

When sparks fly and new alliances are forged in the Satyr ranks, both Harley and Bella have to decide what it is they want and what kind of future they wish to have. Only together will they succeed, if they can suffer the slings and arrows.

WARNING: This book contains a Satyr prince with unconventional ideas about his princess, a princess with a mind to rival Hawkings, a feral Satyr with a hidden agenda, F/F scenes, polyamory and lots of hot sex.

ARC provided for review by author

I don't think I have hidden the fact that I really enjoyed Of Crimson and Collars and was keen to meet Harley and Bella and see where this series would go, and I wasn't disappointed. There is a different feel to this book, Ben is more established and a father and I think that gives more of a permanency to the novella, and that is in turn crystallised in the form of Harley, who with his more scientific mind was always the more stable of the cousins.

Harley is fun, sexy and irreverent, he knows what he wants and is not afraid of going for it, even if it upsets the applecart. Bella is innocent and worldly all at the same time, taught all the skills of how to please her Satyr but never been pleasured by one, until she is given to Harley. And pleasure her he does. Shunned by the women of his clan she forms a friendship with Mina, a friendship which gives them both pleasure and has the male satyrs around them panting for more and looking for the nearest hard surface.

 What I really liked about this book was the fact we got to see more of the inner workings of the Satyr worlds and that the clans are movable, we find out about the Wild Satyrs and we meet Corbin! Corbin has many possibilities and I look forward to learning more about this mysterious and sexy Satyr in the next story.

For those looking for erotica, the sex is hot, frequent and consensual, just enough to keep you purring through the intriguing plot and wondering what Harley will do when he faces a dilemma.

I give To Collar and Keep 4 frilly knickers out of 5, a damp panty read! Fun and frisky with satyrs and collars, just what a girl needs before an afternoon nap! Enjoy!

Thanks for the review. I am on the fence with this book. I wasn't a huge fan of the first book. The alpha male was a bit too "alpha," and the love seemed like a second thought. Call me crazy, but I enjoy a romance with my sex. But I am interested in finding out more about the Satyr world... I think I'll have to put it on my TBR list! Thanks!!
