Publisher's Summary

Jensen, Finn, Christian, and Rhys.

One is my protector, another my best friend, the third my betrothed, and the fourth...something else entirely. 

And I want them all.

I never thought I'd fall for more than one man, but then again, I didn't think I would wake up on my birthday the queen of the Shadow Court, hunted, in danger, and unable to control my newfound fae powers. Which seem to get stronger the more I give in to my need for these men.

In order to claim my title, I have to complete a set of trials with my men at my side. But a dark force is out to kill me, and every day that passes they get closer to their goal. 

I spent my life thinking I was human. I couldn't have been more wrong.
Now the fate of the Shadow Court fae rests on my shoulders.

I am Queen of the Shadow Court, they are my men, and nothing will stop me from taking my throne.

This book contains M/F, M/M, and M/F/M/M/M scenes. Originally published in serialized form as The Queen of the Shadow Court, this title has been re-edited, and more content has been added.

Don't let negative reviews steer you away!

This book has been on my list for a while but I let the negative reviews deter me from spending a credit. with the long labor day weekend I thought why not and I'm so glad I did! This was my first book by this author so I can't compare it to others but for me this was a great book! I found myself unable to stop listening. This was an amazing fantasy story with all the right angst suspense and love sprinkled with a little bit of humor very very enjoyable.

Pleasantly Happy

This is a perfect sexy stand-alone RH. I was actually suprised at how much I enjoyed this little story. It had all the epic moments you would expect but with none of the annoying aspects. No eye rolling moments, no unnecessary long scenes of internal monologs. Just an epic story that kept me guessing. Some amazing sex scenes, most all MF scenes but one group moment of some light MM action. The scenes are detailed and long enough to serve a purpose but not straight porn or erotica. The story had a wonderful HEA. Honestly all I can say is listen and enjoy, you won't be mad!!!

Magical, steamy and oh so many men to love!

All the Queen’s Men is magical, mysterious, suspenseful, steamy and super sexy! It was my first reverse harem and I think I just might be hooked! Going in, I wondered whether I could fall for the idea of one woman truly loving four men at once. K. Loraine made me a believer. She made each man unique and interesting….and so very hot. I completely get how Maeve could fall in love with Jensen, Finn, Christian, and Rhys individually. Faced with all four at once?! Oh yes!

Looking beyond the men themselves, I was immediately drawn into the magical fae world of the Shadow Court and Maeve’s quest for her rightful place on the throne. I loved that she grew up as a human and was suddenly thrust into a world that was unknown, unusual and unlike anything she had ever known. That’s quite a way to celebrate your 21st birthday! And while it may be her true home, it takes an incredible journey, the love of four amazing men and trials of strength, skill and wit to fulfill her destiny as Queen Maeve.

As for the audiobook, the duet narration was simply fantastic!!! Each character is made all the more bold and impressive by these amazing narrators who bring them to incredible life. Stella Hunter is wonderful as Maeve. She makes you feel Maeve’s uncertainty as she realizes that she is actually a faerie queen and sense her growth in strength as she fights to save her people and earn her crown. Most importantly, she makes the love that grows between her and her men truly palpable. Speaking of her men, Shane East (Jensen), Jason Clarke (Finn), Teddy Hamilton (Christian) and Jacob Morgan (Rhys) each bring such unique voices to the men they portray. I love their voices, their accents and their passion! Just when you think one of them is your favorite, another one comes along and steals your heart. Guests Kylie Stewart and Wesleigh Siobhan are so wonderful, too!

Fae and RH Magic!

This was first experience at an RH book. Personally, it seems too much work, if you know what I mean. But I figured if anyone could change my mind it would be K. Loraine and the amazing cast of narrators for the audiobook.

All The Queen's Men was a wild ride of magic, suspense, romance and whole lot of hotness. When Mauve was born, her parents were murdered. Rescued by her parent's guards, she is to live in the human world until she is of age to become Queen. Her rescuers, Finn and Jensen, are pledged to her and when she's of age, they come back. This sets off a chain of events in the Fae world so Mauve can become Queen.

I really enjoyed this story so much. Mauve fell into the Fae royalty world with ease and was meant to be Queen. And I loved all of her men in her Harem. I can see the appeal of an RH after listening to this story. I don't think I could pick a favorite one. It's an impossible choice. We have different types of Fae and a vampire. It was a great mix of PNR.

All of the narrators were amazing. Stella Hunter as the Mauve. Jason Clarke with a British accent. Jacob Morgan with his Irish accent. And of course, Shane East and Teddy Hamilton. 5 of my favorite narrators all in one book is a dream. It's a duet style so you get everyone narrating together which I love. Wesleigh Siobhan and Kylie Stewart are new to me narrators and they were amazing additions to the story.

Steamy RH Paranormal Romance!

This is a fantastic re-edition to The Queen of the Shadow Court Series. This is a well written RH Paranormal Romance, intricate, captivating, and intriguing. The characters are fantastic. The world building is entertaining. The storyline is full of lust, adventure, and action. The full cast of seven narrators is wonderful! Stella Hunter, Jason Clarke, Shane East, Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan, Kylie Stewart and Wesleigh Siobhan did such an outstanding performance! They amazingly bring this story to life. I liked the bonus story. If you like RH Paranormal Romance, this one is for you!

Amazing full cast performance!

Ok, truth time: I am trash for reverse harem lately, and I'm discovering I also really love a fae story! All the Queen's Men ticked all my boxes.

First, I must say, if you enjoy audiobooks, this is a MUST LISTEN. It has a full cast and that cast is packed with some of the best narrators. Seriously, I cannot recommend this in audio enough!

Originally, the story was a serial, but it has been combined into one story, and I quite enjoyed it. Maeve was a "normal human" who find her life turned upside down by 4 guys. She faces a trial in the fae world that her and her guys must overcome in order for her to become queen. She is also struggling with being attracted to all 4 guys. Life is tough 😉.

The story blends interesting fantasy elements with steamy romance. The story is compelling and I really had a hard time stopping to do things like my job or talk to people. What I also appreciated is that the world building isn't insanely complex. There are some books with fae worlds that spend hundreds of pages building this crazy detailed fae court. This book gives you enough to understand, but doesn't waste excessive words on this area. I appreciate that because world building is important, but I don't always want a 1000 page fantasy book. Now, this book is still LONG (almost 600 pages) but I appreciate that 400 pages aren't just world building before we really dig into the story.

Like most RH reads, the guys are all unique and bring something different to the dynamic. This is an important balance for an author to strike, and I thought the 4 guys in this story were well written and unique enough.

I think my only critique was that there were parts of the story that didn't seem to flow well. I don't know if that is because it was once serialized and now its one story or if it just lacked a flow. At no point was it jittery enough to totally take me out of the story, so it really is a small critique!

Love it so much!!

Thank you on behalf of everyone with ears who enjoys fantasy romance and loves these narrators! All the Queen’s Men is proof that K. Loraine loves us and knows what we need. I've been waiting for this one, so my narrator-motivated ears were in heaven & all of my boxes thoroughly ticked from beginning to end! You don’t want to miss this exciting fantasy romance with a complex and tragic history as the basis for an absolutely delicious red-hot reverse-harem romance! I was hooked from the very beginning on the world and all of the characters. When Maeve is quite literally plucked from a normal human existence into a world of fantasy with the fate of the world on her shoulders she rolls with the changes like the absolute queen she is in order to harness her true potential and save her realm. Each of her steadfast protectors comes into her life in a different way and brings something beautiful and unique to the relationship and the quest at hand. I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll leave it there. The steam factor is very high with this one, so be prepared. This story is well written, engaging, and has plenty of plot twisting fantasy adventure … but holy toe-curling delicious sexy times does it cover all the right bases with all of the right parts from all of the right performers without losing any of the romance! Yowza!! I need to know where I can sign up for trial #1… This is definitely NSFW - requires headphones and a safe place to listen.

Now we must talk about the narration ... This is a stellar example of an all-star duet multicast done right by absolutely freaking fantastic performers who bring all of the emotions to life and play off of each other with excellent editing to weave everything together for the absolute trifecta of audiobook awesomeness! Each character is well defined & uniquely performed so you can truly immerse yourself in the story. All of the things we love about each of these narrators and their gifted performances will sweep you off of your feet! Be prepared for all the feels!

I was lucky enough to receive an #AdvancedListenerCopy in exchange for my honest review, and it absolutely made my day! I listened almost straight through, and then listened again.

Four Swoony Men!! 😍😍

All the Queen’s Men was a steamy, thrilling, paranormal reverse harem romance. It was so good from start to finish. I haven’t listened to a paranormal reverse harem in a long while and this one was wonderful. It had lots of sexy, steamy scenes, plus an action packed mystical prophecy that needed to be fulfilled. I enjoyed every minute of it! K. Loraine beautifully created this intriguing magical world bringing faes, vampires, and sea creatures together. It was easy to follow and not get lost with all the historical background of the Shadow Court and prophecy.

The all-star multicast narration was phenomenal! It made this story entertaining to listen and definitely brought it to life. Shane, Jason, Teddy and Jacob were perfectly cast as Mauve’s men. Shane, as Jensen, the brooding protector. Jason, as Finn, the loyal protective best friend. Teddy, as Christian, the sexy dark vampire prince. And Jacob, as Rhys, the cocky devious sea prince. They each brought something unique to their characters and made the chemistry between them and Mauve epically intense. Stella Hunter as Mauve was incredible! She brought on the sass and quite confidence that made Mauve a lovable character. Wesleigh and Kylie added their own magical twist to their portrayal of the White Lady and Mauve’s Aunts, Saskia & Imogen.

This PNR story ticked all the boxes and made it a unforgettable, entertaining story. All the narrators are incredible storytellers and brought this mystical Fae super reverse harem to life. This audiobook is divided into two parts and includes a bonus novella.

This is the first time I have listened to a large ensemble cast. Wow. It was great. It was like listening to an old fashioned radio play. The narration was brilliant from all narrators. The story was good too.

Amazing Full cast Fantasy Thriller!

All The Queen’s Men

This was an amazing, fantasy thriller in which Mauve finds her place in this whole new magical world, in which she was squirrelled away from as a child, after her parents were murdered. Mauve is a caring, sensitive yet fierce woman who falls for all 4 of her protectors/suitors when she enters that new world. The accents were what really pulled me into this book. All of the narrators were so engaging that it made it like hearing a play. Such adventures they all go through and the heat level of Mauve bedding each of her harem. I didn’t see who the villain was until the end. I thought it was going to be one of her aunts.

The story begins in the human world as Jensen and Finn are there protecting her before she comes back to the Fae realm. When she reaches the age of majority she awakens in this new world that is full of mystical beings such as Fae, vampires, werewolves and goblins as well as mermaids too!

Kim writes a wonderfully wicked world that anyone would love to see. All of the things that I would expect to see in such a fantasy world as well as so much more. Loved that Mauve just thinks it and it appears. Wish I could have those powers. She is such a fierce warrior as she completes the trials to prove her place as Queen. Even slaying a dragon to set free a Fae that’s within! Amazing audiobook for the adventure, done by a brilliant multi cast team of narrators. You’re going to want to have this book in your library!

I'm in audio book lover heaven

My first fae story. I’ve never been a fan. I don’t even know why. But I knew if anyone could get me to like it, it would be K. Loraine – my personal queen of paranormal romance. And, boy, did she ever succeed. The fact that this is a RH romance (which I’m a sucker for if it’s done right) and the audio being a full cast experience jam-packed with some of my favorite narrators didn’t hurt either. Because, OH MY GOD, did I fall for this deliciously steamy and mystical suspense story and Mauve and her four guys!

The guys. All so different and unique, each of them bringing another element into the relationship dynamic. Each of them not only physically (because, duh, audio book) having their own distinctive voices, but mentally, even emotionally too. It’s the most critical thing with a reverse harem – if the balance isn’t given, they will all blend together, making the group feel ingenuine and, in all honesty, unnecessary – who needs four times the same type of man at once? Lol.

The story. Magical. Captivating. Hot. Thrilling. Compelling. Amazing world building. Fantastic, vastly different characters. Full of lust and passion, adventure and suspense. A story of friendship, war, elements, history, power and a prophesy that needs to be fulfilled. A world of not only different types of faes, but vampires and sea creatures too. Intricate. Intriguing.

The narration. All-star. Multicast. Duet style. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. Stella Hunter perfectly portraying Mauve. Then Jason Clarke, Jacob Morgan, Teddy Hamilton, and Shane East as her love interests … good god, did I mention I was in audio book heaven? All stellar voice actors, all bringing their respective characters to life flawlessly, making them even more complex, more fascinating, more intense, more unique, MORE! Add in Wesleigh Siobhan, who was new to me, and Kylie Stewart as the voices of supporting characters, and you have an epic performance for every paranormal romance audio book lover. Gah!

Amazing!

I don't know what it is about K Loraine, but she can pull me into a paranormal, reverse harem romance and make me like it! These are not my typical tropes and I normally stay far away from them. But every time releases one out on audio, she grabs my attention and I am hooked! Their Shadow Queen series introduces us to Maeve. Growing up, things seemed normal. Then off to college and she meets her roommates Jensen and Finn who are really there to protect her. At 21, things all change and Maeve is forced into a world she knows nothing about. Destined to be the Shadow Queen, she has new powers and responsibilities as well as threats that could endanger their entire world. Her two protectors are there and the addition of Christian and Rhys come in adding the last of what is needed to complete Maeve. But will the four be able to keep her safe? Can they all be trusted? And are they be willing to share their lives to be with her? Fae, vampires, witches along with a suspenseful plot and steamy passion led to hours of listening entertainment. The story captured my attention, having the perfect mix of angst and excitement. The flow is easy and characters fantastic. Plus we have a bonus story for Valor that is fantastic!! I This is a book that you do not want to miss!

To top off this amazing story, Loraine casts a team of narrators in duet style narration that is stellar! Stella Hunter, Shane East, Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan, Wesleigh Siobhan, Kylie Stewart each add their voice and bring it all to life. It's engaging, the accents amazing, and each narrator perfectly fit to the character, as if she wrote the story with their voice in mind. It's a fantastic listen!

Outstanding Story & Narration🎧 Intriguing🔥PNR🔥

Wow, this is one exciting and magically impressive novel. It is a well written and well-told story that grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire time. K. Lorraine is a gifted author with a brilliant mind. She created an imaginative and fascinating story filled with equally imaginative and fascinating characters. The world building and character development is phenomenal, as is the originality of it all. Maeve never knew she was born to be a Queen, she was a baby when brave soldiers rescued and removed from the evil who were trying to take over the kingdom. A Kingdom she will rule when she turns twenty-one. She was assigned two guards, Jensen and Finn, they became part of her life when she turned twenty and would accompany her back the the Shadow Court so she could become who she was meant to be. I admired how quickly she accepted her fate, her bravery and how she went in full speed ahead. Her guards were very convincing, and I forgot to mention how hot they are, too. It was great to watch Maeve come into her own as she learned more about herself, her powers and the world she is destined to rule. She had many obstacles to face, including her two aunts who ran the court until she was of age. Maeve learns she must marry a prince and her aunts arranged her marriage for political reasons and they chose Christian, the vampire prince. But is he really friend or foe, Finn and Jenson doubt his loyalty and intentions. But Maeve can feel that he is the right one, but that does not lessen her interest in Finn and Jenson. But when Christian questions his own self and feels he can not trust himself so he disappears into the dark realm again. But when Christian questions his own self and feels he can not trust himself so he disappears into the dark realm again. There are threats against Maeve, there are factions who want to stop her from being crowned Queen. She must pass tests to earn it. When Christian does not return, she must marry another prince and in comes Rhys, the sea prince, which winds up triggering a whirlwind of events. Not is all as it seems in the world of FAE, Vampires, Witches, Pixies and other wonderful supernatural beings. This is one amazing fantasy reverse harem paranormal romance novel, the story is brilliantly plotted with plenty of drama, a touch of angst, mystery, action, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a slow burn and smoking hot romance. “Fires of Valor” is an outstanding bonus story, after meeting Valor in Maeve’s last task and challenge to earn the crown, I was happy to see him find a special someone too. Thank you K. Loraine, I loved everything about this novel, it is an outstanding and entertaining story, one I intend to enjoy over and over.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration and lineup of talent, K. Lorraine could not have chosen a better cast to bring her characters and story to life. Stella Hunter, Shane East, Jason Clarke, Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan, Wesleigh Siobhan and Kylie Stewart are super stars of narration. They each performed their role masterfully and with a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed and chose voices fitting to their persona, sounding believable and just as I pictured the character to sound. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and their passion and projected them into their performance. These narrators are skilled and entertaining storytellers, they took an already exceptional story and enhanced it to another level of enjoyment. Thank you for this outstanding listen!

Tried this book, didn’t regret it

I’m adventurous. I don’t usually read PNR, nor reverse harem. And the author was new to me. But I tried this book, and I didn’t regret it one second.

The fantasy world, where faes, vampires and shifters cohabit, with its specific rules, was fascinating. The fact that its fate falls on the shoulders of a young woman brings this book close to YA novels. Except that it isn’t suitable for young readers. At all.

It’s a reverse harem, and one quite steamy with that. I even felt that all of Maeve’s relationships were based on lust, not love. The romance, at first, wasn’t always clear. But once they know each other, they have very emotional moments. Maeve has powerful scenes with each of her lovers. They’re also all so different from each other that you’ll end up with a favorite, even though Maeve has none.

I’d have loved for the trials that Maeve has to endure to be more difficult, or more developped. They mean something though, and Maeve’s whole story is a coming-of-age story. Not only her: some of her lovers have to overcome their own challenge to deserve their place in her harem.

The main reason I was able to plunge into this universe in the first place, was the narration. The multi-cast was perfect for the various points of view and the narrators chosen for each characters were well cast. Great performances. And the bonus story was adorable–and sexy.
