If you have read the previous books in this excellent paranormal series--and it is essential that you do before reading this book--you already know there were two main relationships from previous books that had huge romantic conflicts remaining to be resolved, Adelaide and her husband and te'sorthene (soulmate) Nate, as well as Griffin and Selene, who are also each other's te'sorthene. This book very satisfactorily resolves both these two romances and the major storyline with the Big Bad of the series as a whole.
Within Black Orchid, there is everything one has come to expect from this talented author: plenty of action involving scary villains; strong, inspiring female leads who offer each other emotional and physical support as tremendous "sister-soldiers" and, best of all, well written romance. I particularly enjoy the fact that this author writes plenty of sexual chemistry while remaining G-rated, such that this series is suitable reading for all ages.
I rate this book as follows:
Main Heroine: 5
Main Hero: 5
Additional Viewpoint Characters: 5
Fantasy World-Building: 5
Romantic Plots: 5
Action Adventure-Plot: 5
