Prince Gabriel of Rhyddon is the reluctant heir to the faerie kingdom of Eilithia. It’s said that there is nothing more beautiful than Eilithia and the Tylwyth Teg faeries that live there. Gabriel would disagree. Since being enchanted by the seductive temptress Aneira, a powerful witch who spoke his name four years ago, he has not seen the beauty in anything. Imprisoned by indifference and oblivious to any power but Aneira’s corrupting passion, Prince Gabriel’s mind may no longer be his own, but he will never give her his heart. That was taken from him long ago, and only glimmers of that joyous pledge keep him sane.

Somewhere across the earthly realm of Wales, Taryn of Hamilhawk dreams of a magical forest with music in its trees and a man who holds her heart in his hands. But she’s afraid of magic and, looking out her lonely tower window, prays each night to forget him. She has no idea that soon she will be his wife and that she will somehow save both him and herself from a force that threatens their future. She would never imagine that her path to passionate love will be filled with faeries, a talking tree, and a shape-changing king … and best it not be revealed until Taryn is free to bring her own magnificence and resilience to bear.

All she knows is that he calls out to her in her dreams. “Save me, Taryn.”

And her heart, no matter how she tries to deny it, must answer.

The Enchanted (Faerie Tale #1) by Genevra Thorne

The Enchanted (Faerie Tale, #1)Tales of enchanted lands, faeries and love, do we ever get tired of them? There is something magical in their stores, even when those childhood tales get a grown up spin. Gabriel is the heir to the throne of his kingdom, but for four years he has been under the enchantment of a wicked seductress he refused to be taken in by. She is all he thinks of, life has little meaning and he is a broken man. Only his heart knows there is another he wants, but who is she, where is she and why doesn’t she come for him?

In the human realm, a young woman dreams nightly of a fantasy lover who cries out to her in the night, who begs her to save him. Taryn’s dreams are both beautiful and terrifying, but the man she loves is out there and he needs her. Taryn knows faeries are magical myths, but when her dreams become reality and Gabriel stands before her, she will have to be brave enough and strong enough for the both of them, and use the power of the only magic she knows, love.

The Enchanted by Genevra Thorne is definitely and enchanted tale of love and the power it holds over any heart. Follow on this magical journey as once again, love conquers all when two beings from different worlds find the meaning of all-encompassing love. Ms. Thorne’s characters are a delight, from the shop-shifting King to the enchanted tree with great wisdom. There are dark twists, moments that feel ominous and moments that will break your heart, but through it all, one always feels they have entered another realm as the magical swirls around and the characters come to life, well, like magic! A sweet romance that will put you under the author’s spell.

I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
