Why do I have it? I like paranormal romance and Elaine Cantrell is a new author for me.

Prince Alan has quite a dilemma. For the past four years he has mourned his wife Olwyn's death; however, his father, King Bowdyn has recently commanded that he marry again - this time to a woman of noble birth. Alan cannot ever imagine remarrying, especially to a woman he has never even met or has a chance of loving. For his refusal to fulfill his father's wishes, Alan is imprisoned for defiance for the period of one year. When he is released, Alan finds out that he was married by proxy to the Princess Morgane for the past two months.

Prince Alan soon finds that his new bride isn't the sweet, submissive creature he expected. Morgane has the heart of a dragon and beauty beyond compare, but she isn't thrilled about the marriage either. However, Morgane has discovered through bitter experience that defiance is dangerous, and she has the scar to prove it.

When dark treachery threatens the kingdom, Morgane and Alan must embark on a perilous journey that has an excellent chance of ending in failure and death for them and all of their people.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, and was totally immersed in the story from the first page. I do love paranormal romance, but while there are brief mentions of fantastic creatures and enchantment, the paranormal elements weren't overstated or overwhelming. I give this book a definite A+!

A+! - (96-100%)
May you read well and often
