Taking the Leap (River Rain #3) by Kristen Ashley
Taking the Leap was a fantastic story filled with all kinds of goodness that made my heart happy. I loved the entertaining moments, the drama, all the emotion, and the healing.

It was brilliant! The Golden Dynasty was filled with so much drama and emotion, passion and pain, healing and love and I absolutely loved it. I swear there were times I couldn't breathe as I read because I felt so immersed in Lahn and Circe’s lives. The characters, details, and phenomenal build were everything.
