Anyone who says that romance novels are nothing but fluff with minimal plot have obviously never read a single chapter in Houston Havens’ Psychic Ménage series. And now with the release of the newest book in this fascinating and intriguing series, Exposed Ecstasy, I challenge these detractors to read this book and deny the brilliance of Ms. Havens’ intricate story. If you think that romance novels are weak and dependent on their romance heroes, read Tessla Reto’s story and see your error.
Exposed Ecstasy is an intellectual romance filled with political intrigue, dramatic tension, heartfelt soul-searching, and scorching sexual scenes. It was like seeing your favorite block-buster sci-fi movie come to life on each page. I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering how Ms. Havens would work everything out and what would happen to the resistance movement.
One of the many reasons that I love this series is because of the captivating characters that Ms. Havens’ creates. With each individual, I am fascinated by their passion for justice and commitment to freedom. I am moved by their past and how it affects their future. And I am excited about their finding love even amidst hate and war. Tessla, Faerydae and Shomar are prime examples of the well-developed, three-dimensional characters that permeate this series. I am in awe of Ms. Haven’s ability to create such authentic and believable characters in this imaginary world.
The relationship between the three was a joy to watch develop. I appreciate that it wasn’t an easy relationship at first because it made the romance genuine and even sweeter when they finally fell in love. The chemistry between the three sizzled across the pages. Even the friendship between Faerydae and Shomar was filled with love and concern for someone each considered a brother.
Then as if interesting characters wasn’t enough, we are treated to an enthralling story filled with so many twists and turns that you never know where the ride will take you and yet, you are just so happy to be a part of the journey. The plot that Ms. Havens has created is so intricate and filled with minute details that your brain is as fully engaged in the narrative as your heart is engaged in the romance.
Please be aware that you should not read Exposed Ecstasy as a standalone novel. This is another part of a large story that has been playing out throughout the Psychic Ménage series and without the information gleaned from the first two books, you will probably find yourself lost. But since the first two books are just as wonderful as the third, reading them first is a treat. Now I just have to figure out how to stay busy while waiting for the next book.
