Overview

Blood never lies, but people do...

With the King of Altera on his deathbed, all eyes are on his only child, eighteen-year-old Angeline Robart. Called from her studies to return to her father's side, the Crown Princess is kidnapped en route by Connor, a mysterious rogue who has been waiting a long time for the chance to change his destiny.

Facing the consequences of a freak accident that even Connor could not prevent, Angeline is forced to travel a dangerous path to regain control of her fate and her kingdom. Her impossible choice requires her to rely on Connor, who epitomizes everything generations of her family tried to destroy.

As the last of the Robart bloodline, Angeline discovers that enemies she thought long conquered have been lying in wait for just such an opportunity as her father's death to turn events to their advantage. Worse yet, by uncovering those secrets, Angeline must confront the possibility that no one ever expected her to take the throne in anything but title alone.

As her bond with Connor grows stronger, she realizes they have far more in common than she ever expected, and that could make him just the ally she needs.

Editorial Reviews

Strange Bedfellows: PNR Reviews - Fia Mac
The story starts off strong by introducing Angeline and giving us a good look into her character. As a protagonist, Angeline is exceptional. She's immediately accessible as a woman who is strong and sensible yet riddled with misgivings. She's the kind of leading lady you can happily root for, telling yourself, "yeah, that's totally what I would have done had it been me." As for plot, the first half of the book is a little slow. Then things pick up greatly with a healthy dose of intrigue.

WOW! I love when a free nook book blows you away. This author did just that! This book was an incredible read. I loved every single one of the characters, even the bad guys. I loved the world she created, so magical and mysterious. I loved the way it was written. Amazing! Angeline is a great character. She is strong willed and confident, but also is growing into the woman she needs to be. She doesn't fawn over love or romance, it is the last thing on her mind. faun is building herself up to be the queen that Altera needs. This is the first time in a LONG time that I have read the first book in a series and immediately started the second! I am very happy that I found this series. And on a side note.... You know how reading these fantasy type books people will be, "I want to be a vampire! I want to be a werewolf! I want to be a witch!" Well let me tell you something, after reading this book, SCREW ALL THAT! I WANT TO BE A WRAITH!!!!

A very good book Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult Eighteen-year-old Angeline Robart’s father the King of Altera is on his deathbed which has turned the eyes of the kingdom on her. While studying she is called home to be at her father’s side but on the way she is kidnapped by Connor. He is a mysterious rogue who has waited a very long to time to change his destiny. Now Angeline is facing the consequences of a freak accident that Connor was unable to stop. She is being forced to travel a dangerous path to regain control of both her future and her kingdom. The choice which seems impossible forces her to rely on Connor who is everything that her family has done everything possible to destroy. Angeline is the last of the Robart bloodline, and she has discovered enemies that she has always believed had been conquered but she now finds out they have only been lying in wait for the time when her father is gone. By uncovering the secrets Angeline discovers even worse is that no one expected her to take the throne in anything but title alone. Angeline now has a bond with Connor that is growing stronger all the time. She also realizes that they have a lot more in common than she ever thought possible. It also could very well make him an ally that she needs now more than ever. This is a young adult story that is very interesting. The world building comes alive with every word as it paints a picture of a different time and place. With every secret that is uncovered the story gets more intense and the plot even more compelling. This story has mystery, action and romance and while it does end with a cliff hanger it is sure to leave the reader desperately wanting to read the next book in the trilogy. If the other two books continue to be a engrossing as the first this will prove to be a very interesting trilogy that hopefully has an ending that is good as the start of the series.

GREAT START TO THE SERIES Angeline is to be the queen when her seriously ill father dies. On her way home from the convent she is kidnapped by Connor, a vampire. He is to take her to his Master. Along the way trouble befalls them. Angeline must learn to deal with those troubles so she can return him. I loved Connor. He does not want to be a vampire and is searching for a cure but he will do as his Master wants and bring Angeline to him. Angeline is not the most reticent of victims. Since she has been trained to be queen, she will do what she must to escape and survive to make her way home. I liked her. She is spunky and kick ass. She is not going to let anyone get ahead of her. However, she discovers that much of what she knows is lies. She has to figure out what is true, what is lie. Who she can trust and who cannot be trusted. I do not like that she has to be married to be queen. I also do not like the man, Malin, who has been chosen for her. I have my suspicions what he has done and what he will do. I need the second part of this series to know if I am right. There is a lot of action and adventure in this story and it sets up the series very well.
