Lady Sophia was brought to Lyacon along with her sister Lady Mina, but when Mina falls for the Lycan king, Larus, Sophia faces the fact that she has to go home alone. Malak is a renowned womaniser and he loves that fact...until he meets Sophia and starts thinking about her and only her. Cupid was rescued from a sink pit by Malak, and as such he owes him a favor. Knowing that love isn't the answer, Cupid decides to deliver Malak the person he hates the most...Sophia...

The ending to this series worked well! There were some scenes at the beginning that were expanded from the end of the previous book, and allowed a different viewpoint than was originally given (such as Sophia's view on the conversation with Mina about saying or going) which was interesting. Though Cupid's Favor could be read as a stand alone book, I'd suggest reading the series in order!

Sophia was a lot more against the idea of love than Mina or Rhiannon (the heroines of the previous two books) and as such also had a different attitude towards sex. It was certainly interesting to see an attitude such as that in a medieval based woman, but I thought that it worked.

The chemistry between Malak and Sophia was of the banter based kind. And it worked well. They seemed to irritate each other, but still be attracted to each other (though there was a reveal later on that makes this make more sense).

This has been a fun series, I'd definitely recommend it for a bit of a fun read, and they don't take too long to read!
