His family betrayed hers.
Her people are his long-time enemy.
Fate chose them to be together.
King Trevan of the light fae has never walked away from a challenge. The moment fate decides his destiny by choosing his mate, he is conflicted. He’d rather lock her up and toss away the key than mate with the female who murdered his father. However, his desire for the dark fae princess can’t be denied, but having her may condemn his entire kingdom.
Amber has been on the run her entire life, always looking over her shoulder. Now that her brother is seated on the throne of the dark fae, she can finally stop living in fear. But when her fated mate shows up to stake his claim, he doesn’t welcome her with open arms. Once again, she finds herself at the mercy of a king, but this time, she’s the one holding the cards.
Fate has declared they are mates. A prophecy ordains the end of the light and dark fae unless Trevan and Amber come to an agreement. It’s not enough that enemies become lovers. To save both their worlds, they must find the one thing that eludes them both.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
I am going to start this review by saying, if you are not current with the series please do not start here. Go grab book 1 and start there. I am current with the series, and it took me a second to remember what was going on. The world Valerie had written is complex.
King Trevan is so not stoked to have Amber…ya know the one who killed his family…be his fated mate. I mean WTF right? But he does go ahead and buys her from where she was being held. Amber is like SHEW, I am free. However, she soon learns that is NOT the case. To say she is not happy is an understatement!! Amber is going to get out one way or another. She sees the effect she has on Trevan. Little seduction won’t hurt right? Wrong because he has the same effect on here. Now this is totally an enemy to lovers feel but with a squish of insta love.
Trevan needs to figure out what to do with Amber …mate or kill her…lol….and then he now has to content with the other dude rolling in wanting her. Not cool and mega stress for him. Amber and Trevan need to get to mating or things will do sideways for their people.
I enjoy the world Valerie has created. I like the banter and chemistry the main couples always have. I lok forward to more in the series.
