THE IMPETUOUS AMAZON is the second storyline in Sandy James’ Alliance of the Amazons series focusing on four female Elemental Amazon warriors and the men they love. The storyline continues to build on the introductory premise as Megan Feurer, the fire Amazon must learn to control her anger and her fire, or find herself powerless in a world haunted by demons, demigods, mythological goddesses and the walking dead. And to ensure Megan follows orders, Sentinel Johann Herrmann, the man who stirred the embers of Megan’s soul in book one, will shadow her every move as she endeavors to reign in her temper when things get out of hand. And to complicate matters, the truth about Megan’s heritage will reveal a deeper connection to the fire goddess than anyone could have imagined and place an invisible wall between Johann and Megan that may be impossible to overcome.
The storyline progresses as Megan and Johann must investigate the mysterious disappearance and deaths of a number of young women all seemingly connected to a popular singer. But it will be Megan that becomes his ultimate target when power and greed are his to command with the help of a number of other supernatural deities.
As the title of the storyline implies, Megan is impetuous; a fiery redhead who is the epitome of fire, Megan’s temper and acidic personality fuels the fire that burns within the Amazon warrior. And our heroine hides a painful past –one of betrayal and rejection at the hands of a woman she once called aunt and mother. But as Megan learns to control her fire, she is unable to control her burning need for the man who is trying to keep the flames under control. Johann will learn first hand what it is to love and be loved by a fire Amazon, and without a shield, Megan’s burning love for her Sentinel may put an end to their relationship before it has a chance to begin.
Sandy James combines mythological goddesses and demons with a contemporary storyline that gifts another Amazon warrior with her mate. The world building is limited in this particular story, as most of the premise is character driven-and saying that many of the previous storyline characters play a pivotal role in the fight against evil. There is romance and love, sorrow and pain, action and suspense as well as the continuous animosity and rivalry amongst the goddesses that risks the lives of the men and women under their command. But the heroine was difficult to like at times-her attitude and personality left much to be desired and saying that-she was who she was because of her past. I am definitely not excusing Megan’s acerbic characteristics because in the real world she would be told in no uncertain terms-where to go and how fast. The Impetuous Amazon is an interesting and fascinating addition to The Alliance of the Amazon series by Sandy James.

“Megan Feurer is a Fire Amazon. She is a little hot headed and bold and pretty impulsive. Some of the goddess, in their bickering ways, want to strip Megan of her fire powers. To keep her from loosing her powers, Megan is given Johann Herrmann as her Sentinel and guide. He has the decision on whether Megan will keep her power or loose it.
Megan knows just how to get to Johann and when she isn’t harassing him she’s driving him crazy with desire. Both Megan and Johann know they are forbidden to get involved but it is not long before the sexual tension becomes to much and they cave. This romance comes to an abrupt end when the secrets they’ve been keeping are revealed. Johann must try to win back Megan’s trust and love but an enemy wants them dead before they have a chance at reconciliation.
The Impetuous Amazon is a smoking hot addition to the Alliance of the Amazons. It is an exhilarating romance with lots of action and adventure. I really loved Megan, even though she is “Impetuous”, she has a heart of gold. Johann lights Megan on fire, in more ways than one. He is a strong hero and makes a great match to ignite Megan’s flames. (Sorry, I can’t help myself). I was definitely rooting for Megan and Johann, even though it was a rocky road it was a fabulous journey to share with these wonderful characters.
The Impetuous Amazon was an enchanting, fiery romance that kept me invested till the end.
