Ellery's Duty - Kim Dare Kefir was always a favourite character in previous books, so I was very pleased to finally read his story. I still love Kefir but just couldn't warm up to Ellery and that marred my enjoyment of his story. This book was also rife with the terms "the dominant" and "the submissive", which is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Used once or twice and I'm quite clear on the character's roles and using those terms over and over...and over makes me feel more and more distant from the characters and the relationship that is supposed to be developing. Reading the term "the submissive" makes the character into someone random, generic and interchangeable instead of my sweet, naively adorable Kefir!
