This is book three and I have not read the first two books. That was not a big thing since you are given enough information about the past to keep up and understand what was happening. I felt like there was a big build up to nothing. This whole story is about Oria and Lonen making their way from her home to his home and trying to survive with no water and food. I was at least waiting for a big exciting ending that sadly wasn’t there. Reading about Chuffta and his personality was fun. I got a laugh a few times from his responses and behaviors. There is the possibility that this could be the end of the series or not.

Book Three in the adult fantasy romance series, Sorcerous Moons. The novel, The Tides of Bára, is a paranormal kindle book of magic and sorcery – and a war culminating in a marriage of convenience between enemy kingdoms.
A Narrow Escape
With her secrets uncovered and her power-mad brother bent on her execution, Princess Oria has no sanctuary left. Her bid to make herself and her new barbarian husband rulers of walled Bára has failed. She and Lonen have no choice but to flee through the leagues of brutal desert between her home and his—certain death for a sorceress, and only a bit slower than the blade.
A Race Against Time
At the mercy of a husband barely more than a stranger, Oria must war with her fears and her desires. Wild desert magic buffets her; her husband’s touch allures and burns. Lonen is pushed to the brink, sure he’s doomed his proud bride and all too aware of the restless, ruthless pursuit that follows…
A Danger Beyond Death…
Can Oria trust a savage warrior, now that her strength has vanished? Can Lonen choose her against the future of his people? Alone together in the wastes, Lonen and Oria must forge a bond based on more than lust and power, or neither will survive the test…
