HIM She walked into the room like she owned it, demanding that I pay attention before she even voiced a word. When faced with the brown beauty, I almost forgot my number one rule: Trust No One. It’s something I remind myself daily. We all have an addiction and if I’m not careful, she’ll become mine. I can’t afford any distractions right now, especially when my latest obsession has secrets that can do more harm than good.
HER He has every reason to be uncertain about me and yet, I can’t help but be drawn to him in every way. How he speaks. The way he walks. The fact that all eyes are on him when he’s in their presence. I can’t recall a time in my life when I wasn’t running from something, and not always by choice. I don’t want to crave him like plenty of women already do. He’s a Crowne. We’d never work. So why can’t I seem to remember that fact whenever I’m near him? Please Note: Throne of a Pharaoh contains sex, violence, and profanity. Before reading this story, it is recommended that you check out the first books in the Crowne Legacy series.
Wow, I am not sure where to start with Throne of a Pharaoh! One thing I can tell you, without hesitation, it is a damn good installment to this Crowne Legacy series. It is heartwarming, powerful, insightful, and impressionable!
If you are following this series, you are familiar with Pharaoh Crowne, but until now, we only knew he was complicated and more than meets the eye. He was Dutchess' go-to person, and he has a bunch of kids, his business: the streets, and like all the others having secrets and a unique past seems to be the genetic makeup of this family. Pharaoh is the complete package. Even with his illegal dealings, he still has the heart and compassion to serve and protect. Check out the family meeting with his kids. Was this how it started with Dutchess and Stan?
Genesis is not only from his past but left a history of bad blood between them. She is back and about to muddy the waters. Her timing wasn't good, she needs his help, and she can't reveal everything...except that over a decade ago I had your son🤦🏽♀️😲 You want to dislike her but, their chemistry is too explosive, and they appear to be a good fit. Remember the name Noble!!!!!
Sherelle Green masterfully built this world with well-researched themes and developed characters that give this series a realistic feel. Catching up with the family is always good, and there are introductions to new characters that answer some questions and helps navigates us to the next installment. If you are not reading this series, you are missing out on a fantastic read.
It would have been a disservice to Pharaoh's story to pair is with one of my signature wine pairs, so to give him the proper, well deserved tribute, I chose PATRON, his Crowne family name. It isn't my first time having Patron, and it isn't something I would normally partake. It's taste is strong with a hint of woodsy flavor, and a long but smooth finish. Like our hero, it is unique to its brand. On first sip it has a kick and at times seem unapproachable, but once you are become familiar with its taste, not bad at all.
I discovered this time around that Patron Silver is more enjoyable when it is mixed. For fun consider this one. It was easy to make and tasty.
