    Finally we get Arthur and Gwen's story

    I have waited a long time to find out about how Arthur and Gwen got together and how they were transformed by Merlin. And the wait was worth it. I would give their story five stars but the other stories were only okay in my opinion, They were fun to read but they didn't stick with me the way the Mageverse stories do.

    This book contains three erotic fantasies by Angela Knight that provides three different adventure of BDSM erotic passion for the reader to sink their teeth into. Spine tingling tension builds throughout all three stories as the erotic sex scenes progress and the reader waits to find out where it will lead.  The author spins her own version of King Arthur and the Beast that leaves the reader aroused with curiosity as well as passion. . I love the Mageverse series and its captivating characters and this was definitely a thrilling addition to the series. While the other two stories are short, all the stories were enjoyable and entertaining and I was totally engrossed in all three from beginning to end.

    Whew! I need a fan after that one! Readers will definitely need a tall glass of water to help cool off after reading Knight’s newest Mageverse book (or a tall, dark, and handsome someone to help take the edge off!)

    Taking the reader back to the beginning, Knight introduces us to many of the well-known Mageverse characters and how they became what they are now, focusing on the leading pair- Guinevere and Arthur Pendragon. I have read quite a few books in this series and this fits in nicely, but was a bit of a surprise in the HEAT department (not having read the description first!) Arthur and Gwen were meant for each other, and prove it more than once in this novel, and in more ways than one, much to the reader’s enjoyment!

    There are a few additional stories that are even more erotic than theirs, one is part of the Mageverse and one is not. They were a bit too much for me, but there are quite a few readers of erotica that will love their addition to this collection.

    All I can say is, enjoy!

    Received for an honest review.

    There is a lot going on in Angela Knight's new Wicked Games anth

    There is a lot going on in Angela Knight's new Wicked Games anthology. Readers are treated to a prequel from Knight's highly acclaimed Mageverse series, two short stories from Knight's early career and a look into Knight's next anthology featuring Morgana's story, "Oath of Service". Fans of the Mageverse will revel in finally getting Knight's take on the beginning of Arthur and Gwen's story. How they became immortals and even the tale behind Lancelot's betrayal. This is Arthur like you've never seen him before. Territorial, controlling and one fiercest warriors to have ever lived. Readers will also enjoy seeing what's to come with Mageverse series and some of Knight's classic BDSM writing. This book isn't for everyone, but for those love a wicked ride... this is it!

    What I liked:

    The headliner for this anthology is a the prequel to the Mageverse series, called "The Once and Future Lover". This is the story that begins it all. Having not read any of the other Mageverse books, I was very open minded going into this one. I knew that Knight's take on Camelot featured vampires and witches and I was fine with that. A little poetic license is expected when in comes to the paranormal. Combine that with erotica and I was expecting one hot story and I wasn't disappointed. I have always been a big fan of Arthur's and probably didn't have as much respect or understanding for Guinevere, given her betrayal. But Knight turned my understanding of this classic tale on it's ear with this story. It was intense and fierce and extremely sexual. Arthur is a fierce warrior and an even fiercer man. He isn't a benevolent leader, but his vision for his people is strong and worthy. His treatment of those around him isn't always stellar and I think that really worked with the kind of personality that he needed to make his character work. Knight does a spectacular job of showing the moral question he faces and the sacrifices he makes. To say he is also as very passionate lover is an understatement.

    "Bondage, Beauty and the Beast" is of course a riff on the fairy tale. The hero of the story has been cursed and he needs a woman to fall in love with him to break it. That's where the similarities end. I liked the premise, loved the enchanted sex toys, ooooh myyyy! But I had a few issues with how the hero went about acquiring the woman's love. He truly was a beast. He violates her boundaries in every way. I know she's a slave, didn't like that either, but understood it. But she was still a person and deserved that respect. Consent isn't negotiable. Overall a real eye-opener. Definitely, not for the faint of heart.

    Loved the overall concept of "A Question of Pleasure." Civil War era romance between a Union soldier and a Confederate Spy. It had a lot of potential. But the BDSM content is used as a punishment more than as pleasure. It was a good story. I just prefer the more sensual and pleasurable parts of the BDSM relationship than the domination and control aspects. 

    The snippet from Knight's new Mageverse story, "Oath of Service" was again, extremely well written. I will read them all, sooner rather than later. I want to immerse myself in this series and not come up for air until after the next one comes out. 

    Bottom Line:

    I loved the Mageverse stories. I liked certain parts of the other stories, but disliked others. Overall it was very good. Very well written. But it isn't for everyone. Take that with a grain of salt. Pick up and see what I mean.
