Overview

A woman living in secret, hiding her true nature...

Gina is a medical doctor in New York City. What nobody knows is that she's also tiger-shifter royalty, living in exile. Keeping her secret has kept her safe, but all that is about to change.

An injured soldier who heals in a way that makes him more than he ever was before...

Mitch is injured and out of the action. He wakes up in a strange place, with a beautiful woman. Normally, not a problem, but this woman is special. She's a white tiger and daughter of the lost tiger king. She's too good for the likes of him, but there's an undeniable spark of attraction drawing them closer and closer.

A love that will make the very earth tremble beneath their feet...

When evil challenges, Mitch will fight to keep Gina safe. A harrowing journey to the side of a living volcano brings secret knowledge and a power none of them ever expected. Will it be enough to prevail?

Only victory will keep his lady safe. And only victory will allow Gina to claim the man she truly loves.

    King's Throne is so well written you will find yourself quickly

    King's Throne is so well written you will find yourself quickly immersed in the storyline and the strength and emotions of the characters.

    Gina has had people protecting her for her entire life and they know the importance of keeping her identity a secret. Now a successful Doctor in New York Gina works in a hospital with her best friend Ellie. That was until Ellie turned up at her house with an injured man who is much more than he seems.

    Mitch is a Tiger shifter, working as a Royal Guard protecting Ria the panther queen. When the venue that they are in is bombed and Mitch is attacked he is taken by a woman and his fellow Royal Guard Cade to a safe place for help.

    When Gina meets Mitch and Cade she knows they will she her truth but with Mitch in trouble she has to hope they will keep her secret. Gina feels connected to Mitch in a primal way and as he starts to get worse Gina know she must return home if she has any chance of helping him survive. Once back at the family property Mitch starts to regain his health but he is also hit with the need to claim Gina as his, but knowing who she is he could never be seen as her equal. Gina's father visits Mitch and sees who he is to their people and he must prepare Mitch for what is to come, for the battle he must face could save or kill them all. Has Mitch finally found the answers to his past and is his destiny truly here alongside Gina and her family. If Mitch has anything to say about it then YES this is where he belongs and he will die to protect them especially Gina.

    I was hooked from the very first page. I loved King's Throne and could not put it down. Do yourself a favour and be sure to add this to your TBR list you won't be disappointed.

    ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The cover is what grabbed my attention, and after reading the synopsis I knew I had to read this book. King's Throne is the first book I have read by Bianca D'Arc, and is the second book in the String of Fate trilogy.

    Mitch, a tiger shifter, is part of the Royal Guard protecting the black panther Queen Nyx. While performing his duties, Mitch is attacked and poisoned. Gina is an exiled white tiger princess and a doctor. She will need all her medical skills and her the magic of her blood to help Mitch pull through. Gina's blood has the ability to heal both shifters and humans alike. Will Mitch be able to resist the growing attraction for Gina? Or does Fate have other plans?

    This is paranormal romance at its finest. A compelling, magical story with well developed characters that has plenty of action and steamy romance. What more could you ask for? I have just added another author to my must read list. I look forward to the next installment.

    FATE has thrown together a humble Tiger male with a Royal Tiger

    FATE has thrown together a humble Tiger male with a Royal Tiger Princess! Will he welcome his density & claim her as his MATE?

    Gina is a NYC doctor who loves to heal, but she has a whole different side to herself. She is a Royal White Tiger Princess, who is in exile with her mom & dad. Gina grew up on a guarded snowy mountain top with her family & other loyal families that left with her parents. Now she lives in NYC, but the wounded Tiger shifter in her passenger seat has brought her back to the guarded family home.

    Mitch has always been an outsider to the Tiger clan he was adopted into. He was lucky to get adopted by the Thorburns, but feels more comfortable with his BF, Cade, & the Panther clan that trained him as a Royal Guard. So he guards Ria, the top Kitty of the Panther clan, with Cade. Mitch was attacked protecting Ria & shoot with some drug that is killing him.

    Gina knows Mitch can heal here with her dad’s Old Royal Guard watching them, so she injects her own healing blood into him to stop his convulsions. Now when he shifts half way, his going from golden fur to white, which should not be happen, because only Royal Tigers are white. When Mitch is able to open his eyes & smells this sexy & “coming home” scent, he is floored because it's coming from by the gorgeous Princess. Gina’s father (the exiled King) welcomes Mitch & seems relieved that Mitch is changing. They both want one another, but he doesn't think he is good enough for her.

    The 1st time he shifts all his golden fur is white & he & Gina meet her parents at the Sacred stone circle, the clouds seem to open up, the bright light from the Mother of All bathes the white Mitch & now he has been BLESSED by her! Mitch is then told that his arrival has been seen by the King, as a vision & he must challenge the King's evil mage-tainted brother, Gisli, to free the Tiger clan. Mitch grows stronger each day, practices fighting with her clan, regains his strength & is preparing to fight to his death, if he must. The sexually heat finally ignites, when Gina gets a little helpful advice from her mom, about waking up Mitch’s dominant Tiger. Mitch can no longer keep his Tiger at bay & they unleash their inner Tiger's, mate & PURRRRRRRR the night away! With the challenge in the air, the evil Gisli challenges Mitch via an arrow, so with the Old Royal Guard at their back, the time has come for Mitch & Gina to embrace their FATES! Has the Mother of All given Mitch enough power to defeat Gisli? Can Gina’s love make him stronger? Will Mitch accept his new fur & status & become the Tiger he should be?

    I have read Ms. D'Arcy’s books before & reading this one felt let welcoming an old friend back to my book COSMOS. Gina is a strong heroine with grace & intelligence, but never let her inner Tiger out to much. Mitch always felt out of step with his adopted family & preformed to claim his own family with Cade & the Panther clan. He had to fight with himself about being worthy of Gina, a Royal Princess. This whole book has a very spiritual vibe to it & it helped with the many legends at work in this tale. Ms. D'Arc made a believable & wondrous Tiger world that made me feel WELCOMED, so I hung out, kick my paws back & stay awhile. Of course it would not be a romance without panties & tightie whities dropping & these 2 characters were so playful & fun with one another! Ms. D'Arc made my whole book experience ever better & my pleasure center rock, when Mitch & Gina PURRED up my world! This tale of the ever changing Tiger world gets a score of 4 fingers up & 10 toes & I can't wait to read the next one!

    NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.

    The second book in the String of Fate series is a mesmerizing ro

    The second book in the String of Fate series is a mesmerizing romance with a fairy tale thrill.  A royal tiger shifter, Gina has always had to live in secret, but when she takes in an injured soldier destiny sets a plan in motion that will change both their lives forever.
    This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on the edge of anticipation with suspense, action and romance.  The author paints vivid images of the events and scenes to capture the imagination and draw the reader deeper into the story and spine tingling tension builds throughout the story as betrayals and plots are uncovered and the danger escalates.  The strong compelling characters are easily related to and capture ensuring that the readers want to know more.
    The attraction between Gina and Mitch radiates lots of passion from every page and sex scenes are hot enough to make Grim the volcano erupt, but the relationship has a few obstacles like the fact that Gina is royalty and Mitch is a soldier that someone is trying to kill and Gina’s evil uncle and the Goddess has parts to play in this relationship as well.  The reader can’t help but get caught up in this dramatic and complicated fairy tale of a romance as the couple try find not only their happiness but bring the whole tiger clan happiness as well and put things to rights.
    The author has created a wonderful world of shifters that, while easily followed and understood is complex and diverse adding lots of depth to the world and invites reader in for a fascinating adventure with some mystical elements that add spice to the story and keep readers guessing.  This is the first book that I have read by this author and I must say that I was enthralled from the very beginning and I will definitely be reading more books by this author.

    Kings throne

    Radicaly cool read. Looking forward to the next book in the series. I love bianca d arc's writing style and how she has same the villinous organization in several of her series each heroic couple defeating and finding out new information about the vinivucus and how bianca d' arc then uses it in her newest books . I also like how she has cameo's of characters from past books woven into her newest books creating her fantasy world . I would love to have her books and their characters turned into an online video game like WOW

    Gina is a Doctor. So when her friend calls her for help with two

    Gina is a Doctor. So when her friend calls her for help with two injured men she can't tell her no. When she gets to her friends apartment she knows that she has been found out. She will help them but that also means that she will have to leave. If they know who she is then someone else will find out. Gina is a rare white tiger shifter. Her father was the king. When his brother turned on him he gave up the throne. But that is the way it was supposed to be. This is what the Sun goddess told him to do.

    Mitch can't believe that the person helping him when he was injured is none other then the lost king's daughter. He quickly realizes that she is his mate but he tries to fight it as he doesn't think that he is good enough. She is a princess and should mate with another white tiger. Someone who can be king. In order to help him Gina gave him a lot of her blood. The first time he shifts after his injuries he finds out that his fur is starting to turn white. He can't fight his attraction to Gina anymore and once he gives in that's it she is his.

    What will happen when Mitch goes against Gina's uncle?

    My Opinion: I Absolutely loved this book. I have enjoyed all of Bianca D'Arc's books that I have read. This one wasn't as racy as some of the others that I have read but it was still great just the same. I think that she come's up with great ideas and turns those ideas into amazing books. I was hooked right from the beginning. I used to not be a big fan of shifter books but they are quickly becoming my favorites thanks to wonderful authors like Bianca D'Arc who drag you in right from the beginning and keep you hooked. I suggest reading as it is a great book and if you are anything like me you will love it.
