Genre: Romantic Fantasy
To save her sister, a desperate human woman is willing to kidnap the handsome Lord of Wind and Spring
Daphne must bring a powerful elemental fae lord to the mountain before the full moon or her little sister dies.
Kanek, a fine-dressing but reclusive elemental fae, knows something has to change, but he doesn’t know what to do or how. A human woman showing up in his sanctuary and attempting (unsuccessfully) to render him unconscious and abduct him is not part of his plans. But her utter gall and desperation are enough to convince him that maybe cooperation is better than ignoring her.
It’s not the quest he expected. He’s not the man she thought. She might be harder to live without than she is to live with. And right from the start, he can’t stop thinking about her. But it is just because she’s annoying? Right?
Helen’s thoughts: 5/5
This book has such a brilliant beginning, and it doesn’t stop from then on. Daphne, a human on a mission to save her sister, is determined to capture herself a Fae lord. Hitting him over the head seems an excellent idea. Whatever it takes to save her sister, Daphne will do, even if it takes her life.
Kanek, is an elegant and powerful, but bored Fae lord. When Daphne tries to abduct him, it stirs an interest that has long been ignored. Intrigued, he decides to help this crazy woman, and so begins the quest to save her sister.
At times funny, at times tragic, Daphne’s indolmitable spirit shines throughout. Kanek grows more suspicious as time goes on and tries his best to keep Daphne safe, but all is not as is seems and evil stirs in the darkness.
A thoroughly enjoyable romantic fantasy, you’ll love Daphne and Kanek, who are both great characters. A bit of steam at the very end, but otherwise a sweet, clean romance.
