"Falling in love has never been this fun, or this perilous." -Ingrid's Book Blog

Off-limits has never been so irresistible...

Lady Katherine Durant has perfected the art of hiding her Gifts-a valuable skill in a land where any hint of sorcery could lead to the burning stake. But, hiding her Gifts isn't the same as not using them, and that troublesome difference has led to capture each time she's run from her uncle.

Now, using a newly-discovered spell, she binds her powers and flees again-this time for her life. Unfortunately, her plan to hide as a maid in a distant kingdom goes awry when she unwittingly gets entered into a festival competition for the hand of a prince-a man with a wicked kiss and a sense of adventure that rivals her own.

All she's ever hoped for is a quiet existence as a servant, never imagining she could find laughter and belonging and love. And now the mischievous prince has her dreaming of all those things.

With a bounty on her head, sorcerers closing in, and a prince threatening to steal her heart, could it finally be time to stop running? Time to trust? Time to love?

A fantastical, and magical romance! Full of Magik, spontaneity, quick wit and humour. Who knew genies do exists, and in the form of an alluring young woman?? What’s the problem you say? Well imagine being robbed of your life or being used solely for the purpose of somebody else's gain. Well lady Katherine Durant is exactly that. A Genie in the making. She has magik that she will bind so she won't be discovered and traced by her awful uncle, and flees for the ninth time in hopes of escaping her new found fate! She will belong to a master!!! A master that can turn invisible, that can make her do anything he wants. But the ceremony while binding isn’t yet complete. Fleeing is her only hope, but to where? So she turned to a cousin for help, and ends up becoming her cousin's hand maid. As Kate, a maiden full of spunk, quick wit, and snarky humor. “Would you like to know why as well, Kate?” “ Of course,” she said with batting eyelashes and a honey-sweet tone. “Please pontificate.” Their set their course to the competition for the hand of the prince!! And well, here we find another lovely character!!! Bregovi!!! A complete jokester with a heart of gold. The bandit prince, who has to marry accordingly, and was entered by his father in a bid for his hand. Turns out all he ever needed was the love, humor and intelligence in a maiden that was not supposed to love him back. Falling in love has never been this fun, or this perilous. And can Kate keep the love of her life after he knows the truth? Romance flows from the pages!! I read it in almost one sitting! Katrina Snow will transport you to a time full of wonder, and magic, balls, and beautiful dresses. Definitely a book to read, and there is a little teaser at the end hinting that there will be more to come. If there are, I will definitely read them! It very well written an excelent debut book!
