Overview

Sometimes love is the most dangerous magic of all...

Eager to find her place in the world and understand the frightening gifts she's been born with, Jessalyne Brandborn leaves her sheltered life to become apprentice to the most powerful sorceress in Shaldar. She hires Ertemis, the deadliest man in the realm, to get there.

With the Legion's bounty on his head, Ertemis is reluctant to escort Jessalyne but needs the money she offers - especially if he's ever to find out who his father is. On the way, he discovers benefits to Jessalyne's naiveté; she treats him like an equal, not an outlaw.

Swayed by Ertemis' gruff charm, Jessalyne starts to trust him and her emotional walls begin to crumble.

Little do they know that within them lies the hope of the dying elven race, the renewal of Shaldar's beleaguered kingdom and an incredible chance at love. If they don't kill each other first.

Editorial Reviews

Ciar Cullen
This self-published title is as fine as any classic fantasy tale I’ve read in a long while. I would recommend this title to anyone who likes romance, fantasy (not of the darkest horror variety), unique “species” for want of a better word, and flawless, flowing writing.

    Very Good!

    I have been recommending this author quite a bit. One of the things that I love about the LendMe feature is that I can promote authors I really like, and I really really like this one. She fleshes out characters without being long winded, the details she gives are the right kinds. She made me love her main characters, and even a couple of the extras. I really enjoyed this story, and found it to be very well written. After borrowing it from someone else I had to purchase it for myself, along with the other 3 the author had available.

    I think most people would enjoy this story. The love interest is kept interesting without resorting to erotica. The fantasy world the author created was outstanding.

    I LOVED this book!!!

    As soon as I picked it up, I could not stop reading until I finished it. I was caught from page one. The plot is fascinating, the characters are lovable, and the romance between the main characters has just the right heat and "fun" without being erotic (vulgar?). I only wish there was more of it, or a sequel of some sorts.

    Solid

    The story was well told with interesting motives for the different characters. It blended fairly well.

    Lost stars due to too much filler. I skipped parts and was still able to enjoy the story. She could have cut out at least 100 pages and had a better book.
