If you had to become a sacrifice in order for your people to survive another eight years in your village, would you? That seems like a huge risk, but when you are thinking about your father and brother potentially falling victim to giants, what more can you do? Moone has a fast-paced, entertaining story with Claimed by the King. Broc Bearclaw is the ruler of the Black Isles and he must take in as many outsiders as possible in order to allow his people to thrive and survive against the oncoming war with the sea people. His people are also pressuring him to take a wife and produce an heir. When Broc sees Kelly for the first time on that wooden post, a sacrifice to his people until the next eight years, he is enraptured by her beauty and immediately feels connected to her. He wants passion. He wants to protect her. But, his people suggest that an oncoming threat is looming over the Black Isles and they can't help believing that Kelly has something to hide which can be a danger to them all. Moone has a quick read with this first installment. The novella is filled with a great backstory and terrific character development; however, the romance is a very fast-paced. The author is assuming the characters have an instant draw to each other based on lore of finding ones soulmate. The story is written well and easy to read. If you are a reader of paranormal romance, you may want to try this one. Since this is the first installment, the reader can jump right in. This book was downloaded by Turning Another Page from Book Funnel and in no way affects the honesty of this review. We provide a four-star rating for Claimed by the King by Lorelei Moone.

So I am a pretty big paranormal fan. And I do enjoy many different authors that write in the genre but for some reason, this one just didn't do it for me. I didn't feel the connection between the characters. I wanted to really like it. But it was just meh. I probably won't read the next book in the series.

New book in a New series by this author. I have loved every book this author has put out and this one was no different. We get a young woman who in all respects has been lied to her entire life. So when it's her turn to be the sacrifice she takes it with no fight. Every eight years a human has to be sacrificed per a contract between humans and the savages but are they truly savages? There is an instant attraction between Kelly and Broc which both find weird but she eases into her place in the kingdom until those who are close to Broc threaten everything they are trying to build. Can Broc keep her safe? Or is she his savior? I can not wait to see what happens next as I know Broc' family member is keeping a secret of sorts.

3.75 'Light' Stars Review by Allyson Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Light Love Life Edgy, unique paranormal romance that sets this new series by Lorelei Moone on a fresh path for the next books to follow. Claimed By the King was enjoyable and intriguing in a sense. I liked how it wasn't just a one-animal shifter novel but a collective of animals; bears, wolves, owl, witch, etc. A female sacrifice on the verge of life and death alleged to folklore, however she ends up with more than she bargained for. I only wished there was more lust, more connection between Broc and Kelly. The chemistry was on the surface but it could have gone deeper. I, as the reader, wanted more passion, more fire than what we were given. As well, the ending was abrupt and I felt the relationship between Kelly and Rhea was unfinished. I understand there are more books approaching soon and I am hoping that my questions will all be answered. Even though my rating is mediocre I will be reading the rest as the book was well written and I am interested to see what happens to the 'other' prisoner in the dungeon.
