Wicked Reads Reviews – The Oak King by P.G. Forte

Twice each year, Aine Murphy ventures into the woods to hold ceremonies to honor the Oak King and the Holly King, never dreaming these Lords of the Forest could be anything more than myth. When the legends spring to life in front of her, how can she help but fall for the sexy demi-gods she’s loved all her life?

From midwinter to midsummer, Fionn O’Dair rules the Greenworld as the Oak King—a role he feels is beyond his abilities, and one that dooms him to a loveless future, forever craving the one man he can never allow himself to have. How can he resist what Aine offers—the sweet devotion that soothes his aching soul, and the slim chance to live a “normal” life as her husband, if only for half a year?

Holly King Kieran Mac Cuilenn never desired a human lover—until now. Seeing Fionn and Aine together fills him with longing for the love he threw away and awakens feelings he thought he’d buried with the last Oak King. Is there enough magic in the solstice to correct the mistakes he made years ago? Or is he doomed to be forever left out in the cold?

This was an interesting story, set in 1800's Ireland. According to this folk tale – the Oak King and Holly King are the yin and yang of the Forest. One rules over the summer months, while the other only comes out during the winter.

One fateful day Aine was performing her annual summer solstice religious ritual, a gentleman appeared from the forest to approach the widow – who was very apprehensive of the naked man in front of her. As they get to know one another, they find love, but an important secret has yet to be revealed.

How will Aine react once the secret is revealed? Will their relationship survive?

This story was very interesting, it was unique and it drew me in quickly.
I really enjoyed this – the romance was quick but sweet, and the ménage was HOT!
I'd like a continuation of this story to see how these characters grow.

PG Forte inhabits a world only slightly less strange than the ones she creates. Filled with serendipity, coincidence, love at first sight and dreams come true…it also bears an uncanny resemblance to Berkeley, California.

She wrote her first serialized story when she was still in her teens. The sexy, ongoing adventure tales were very popular at her oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes.

Even if her teachers didn’t always think so.

Originally a Jersey girl, PG now resides with her family on the extreme left coast where she writes rule bending, genre blending romance and paranormal stories.

When she's not pestering her husband to help her research scenes for upcoming books or being amused by her vastly entertaining children, she can usually be found serving the needs and whims of her characters...and her cats.

It's a difficult job, but someone's got to do it.
