RAIDER’S BOUNTY by Leann Ryans
A story that captures your heart, just as Raider captures his Lyric
Raider’s Bounty is set in a ‘middle-ages’ type world, similar in feel to some Viking romances and a little like Lee Savino’s Beserker world, but definitely something of the author’s own creation. Whilst the world building wasn’t massively detailed it also wasn’t really necessary, as this is a story that focuses very much on the two main protagonists. What we do get is a well written, entertaining and nicely paced love story.
Lyric is an omega and Raider is not only an alpha but the leader of his tribe. The tribe who attack Lyric’s village, leaving death and destruction in their wake and capturing a handful of female omegas. Leann Ryans writes a more gentle alpha-omega dynamic, one where omegas are not repressed and alpha’s to do not have the right to subjugate them. This doesn’t take anything away from the book but does offer an alternative for those who don’t always want, or enjoy, a darker read.
Over the course of the book not only do you get to know both main characters, but I found myself really connecting with them both and believing in their feelings for one another. It’s actually quite a slow burn book, with only a couple of steamy scenes (and they are VERY steamy). I was caught up in enjoying the story that I didn’t even miss them!
This is an ideal book for those who love a ‘captive romance’ but don’t enjoy dubious/non-consent.

When Lyric’s quiet life is shattered by a group of alpha warriors attacking her village, she thinks her worse fears are going to come true. When an omega is captured by an alpha, there’s little question about what is going to happen to her, but is this life any worse than the one her father had planned for her? Will she have a chance of being treated like a person and, maybe, find happiness?
This is a Barbarian Omegaverse Romance with mature themes meant for an adult audience. This book is a standalone with a HEA.
