Marrick's Promise - Kim Dare I really enjoyed the second story in this series. Unfortunately, I didn't get any more answers as it related to the first story. I really liked Marrick and enjoyed getting to know a bit of his life story. It gave me a good understanding of why he wanted things the way he did. I also liked Luther and Blaine although they came across a bit childish in their speech and mannerisms. I thought it was adorable how they tried to take care of Marrick. It wasn't as steamy as I was expecting & hoping. It just seemed like the connection wasn't really there between Blaine & Luther like it needed to be.
