The Fire Lord's Lover (The Elven Lords #1)
by Kathryne Kennedy
What is it about:
In a magical land ruled by ruthless Elven lords, the Fire Lord's son, Dominic Raikes, plays a deadly game to conceal his growing might from his malevolent father—until his arranged bride awakens in him passions he thought he had buried forever.
Lady Cassandra has been raised in outward purity and innocence, while secretly being trained as an assassin. Her mission is to bring down the Elven Lord and his champion son. But when she gets to court, she discovers that nothing is what it seems, least of all the man she married.
But beneath the gilded castles lies an unspeakable evil, greater than either Dominic or Cassandra had ever fathomed, and without each other they may not survive.
What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
A really nice read.
I will confess I thought the obstacles in the romantic story line were overcome a bit too easily. Dominic started out as a very closed off individual, not talking with his wife, but just a few nights of physical passion were enough to make him open up apparently.
Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the romance, but wouldn't have minded to see both of them connect a bit more on an emotional level.
I loved the world building and the overall story. Next to Dominic and Cassandra there were some interesting characters, and I hoped that maybe one of the other books might feature some of them, but it seems I'm out of luck. That being said, the other books in this series do sound intriguing.
All in all this is an enjoyable Historical Fantasy Romance, and I'll most certainly give the next book in this series a try.
Why should you read it:
It's an enjoyable romance set in an intriguing world.
