Aundi’s Musings…

5 Kingdom Crowns

This is the first book in the Dark Kings series by Shantel Tessier and she does not disappoint. This book is dark and gritty with ruthless kings and the woman that bring them to their knees. I loved every minute of this heart pounding descent into the Kings underworld. 

She’s mine now. I’ve waited long enough for her; he’s not getting his hands on her again. 

I love dark romance it’s one of my favorite genres and this book is beyond anything that I could have imagined. Shantel pulled zero punches with this letting us get down and dirty with these boys. I’m obsessed with the emotions that occur when reading a dark romance, the forbidden aspects of it, and the depravity and this book has all that in spades. 

My lips find hers frantically. I can taste the alcohol in her kiss, and I swallow her in hopes to get drunk.

I knew Shantel could write some hot scenes, but holy lord this book goes above and beyond. I legit thought my Kindle was going to burst into flames. The tension and build up between Titan and Emilee was intense but when that tension culminated I had to set my Kindle down and take a deep breath, cause damn woman that was HOT!!!

I loved Emilee her strength and resilience was inspiring. Even when her world was falling apart, and she felt completely alone she was strong, stronger than most and stronger than she gives herself credit for. And the resistance she shows against Titan was EPIC she never let him take control or decide for her, she did that all on her own showing him that she really is a Queen. 

She’ll run. I know her well enough to know that she will take off. That’s just what she does. What she knows. She can try and hide all she wants, but I’ll find her. No matter where she goes. A king always finds his queen.

Titan was pure male aggressiveness in the most Alpha way. You do not cross this man he wears his dominance like a second skin. Just being in the same room with him you can feel it. And when he sets his sights on you be prepared to give this man any and everything that he wants, because you know you are in for the ride of your life. 

Shantel has crafted a gritty all-consuming read that will have you caught up and enthralled with all things King. From start to finish this book will have you completely entertained, with hot scenes, violence and romance all twisted up with Shantel’s signature style. If you love dark romance then this book is for you…..

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.

I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.

I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.

Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.

Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.

And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.


When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.

But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.

Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.

One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.

I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.

“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.

I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.

He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.

What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.

But was it for nothing?

Titan - AN



Titan steps up to me.

“Don’t …”

“Look who found her voice,” he muses.

“Shut up, Titan.” I snap, pulling my cell out of my pocket and dial Jasmine’s number. It rings once, twice. Three times. I pull it from my ear, and he snatches it from my hand. “Hey …”

His smile just widens. “So you do remember me.”

Like I could forget. “Give me my phone back.” I order reaching out for it.

He places it in the front pocket of his jeans. “Drop to your knees.”

“Excuse me?” I blink.

His dark blue eyes look me up and down, and the corners of his lips turn up like he knows a secret. And he does. Several of them about me. “Drop to your knees and I’ll give it back to you.”

My blood boils at his words. “Fuck you!”

He steps into me, pressing my back into my door, and I gasp in surprise. I thought he was big, but his hard chest presses into mine, and I have to tilt my head back to look him in the eyes. Even with my heels on, this man towers over me. I always liked that about him. He’s the tallest of all the Kings.

The scent of his cologne hits my nose, and I hate how much I like it. It brings back old memories that I want to drown in, but I make myself stay here in the present. The light pole I parked under casts a shadow over his chiseled face, making it glow like a ghost from my past.

“We came close that one time.” His eyes go to my chest, and I know he can feel my heart pound against his. He reaches up and runs his knuckles over my neck. His skull ring burns the skin, making me shiver. “So fucking close. It was the only time I could actually tolerate you.”

“Titan.” I swallow, trying to calm my nerves.

“Yeah, Em?” he asks as his eyes roam my face.

A fucking whimper comes out when he calls me by my old nickname. Then my breath quickens when he places his hands on my face, caging me in.
