Review by: Merissa Sheppard on Nov. 25, 2016 :
The Third Son is the first book in the Kings of Cardenas series, and quite obviously deals with the third son, Damien. Now, he is only the third son by mere minutes, but his status as 'spare' has been made quite clear to him. His eldest brother will be king, and the middle brother (his twin) will become General to the armies. So, he wiles away his time, doing nothing much apart from making a reputation for himself. Esmeralda is a gypsy dancer, who owns a local tavern that she inherited after her father died. Her family own and dance there, but are called to the palace for Serge and Damien's birthday celebrations. It is literally a case of lust at first sight, but Damien's fascination for Esmeralda quickly turns into more. Not only do you have the love story, but you have the mystery/suspense side of it with trying to figure out who the unacknowledged brother was when you get given multiple options by the author.

This is a great story, with a twisted and convoluted storyline, where I had no idea if they would actually end up together or not when everything seemed to be against them. The characters are all well written, whether you like or loathe them, and the circumstances are just far-fetched enough to keep the story interesting and intriguing. The pace is very smooth, with natural highs and lows incorporated into it.

Definitely recommended by me, and I look forward to reading more in this series, and by this author.

This was a good book but............ there were some noticeable errors very hard to miss them. There wasn't much success on hiding who the bad was not enough suspense. It was so easy to pick the guy out and I hoped I was wrong but I was correct and the story ended up falling flat. I am confused how the cousin who was sleeping with Tristan wasn't knocked up and screaming you are the father considering there was a lot of sex between them, she was a virgin yet knew how to give him a Bjob plus he did you know spill. his you know what inside of her just didn't make sense. I am assuming some one knew how to get rid of babies. I mean even what's her face was raped as it says in the book how did she dodge that bullet when it was a group of drunken men.
