He kidnaps her and takes her to his fortress in Fairie to protect her from his many enemies. He knows she will be angry and that he'll have to work to earn her trust, but he finds his task to be even more challenging than he had thought it would be due to Cassie's difficulty in opening her heart.

 Taken by the Huntsman by Mistral Dawn
(Spellbound Hearts, #1)

Taken By The HuntsmanFor most of her life, Cassie was invisible to those around her. Shortchanged on love, happiness and joy, she had no idea where she fit in. Could it be that Earth really had no room for her in its realm?
Cadeyrn is the Erlking, the Leader of the Wild Hunt, a Fae, whose job is to capture and punish Criminals in the Fae realm. It was on one of these hunts that he was forced to travel to the human realm to in chase of his prey. It is then that he saw Cassie and knew she was his eternal mate. Thinking this could make her a target for his enemies, he kidnaps her and can only hope that she will forgive him and learn to love him. Clearly NOT his best move and Cassie is not about to let his actions go unpunished, even if he does set her heart on fire.

Headstrong, trying to make the best of an awful situation, she finds herself learning the way of the Fae and that their kindness and warmth knows no bounds. The loyalty his subjects give Cadeyrn must have been earned and she soon sees a side of this man that is both endearing because she sees his kindness as genuine and terrifying because he is cracking the wall she has built around her heart. Will he be like everyone else she has ever known or can she trust him with her mind, body and soul?

So clearly, Mistral Dawn lets us know kidnapping may not have been Cadeyrn’s smartest move and rest assured she allowed Cassie to assure he had no doubts about it. TAKEN BY THE HUNTSMAN is a fantasy romance lover’s dream! Slow building romance that will boil over with passion, fabulous banter and bickering, and one completely clueless Fae when it comes to human women. There are brutal moments, dangerous moments and moments that will have you completely enraptured! From start to finish, for me, this was fresh reading built in a wonderful world and populated by delightful people of the Fae!
