"What do you see?"
At the age of 14, Neiva, Princess of Fey, looked into the
Waters of Fate. A sacred pool that showed anyone brave
enough to look into its depths the image of their one true
mate, the pool showed Neiva who would be the man she would
marry. The image shocked her, because the man she saw was
her father's best friend, and most trusted advisor, Rhys.
On her twentieth birthday, Neiva makes her play, only to be
rebuffed. Wounded, she retreats to Earth, only to have her
father send Rhys to watch over her and keep her safe.
Rhys was a man conflicted. His best friend's daughter
thought she was in love with him, and he was having a hard
time remembering that she was supposed to be off limits.
When she ran away to Earth, he followed her, only to find
that the temptation was even worse. Vowing to do his duty
and keep her safe, he tries to ignore the growing need, but
some things are just too strong to fight. When evil takes
Neiva prisoner, Rhys will do anything to save her, even if
it means sacrificing himself for her. Will their love have
a chance, or are they doomed?
WATERS OF FATE was a beautiful story. Ms. Jarman did an
excellent job with all the important mechanics of the
story, and the world she created for the Fey was amazing.
Neiva was my favorite type of heroine-she knew what she
wanted, but she wasn't going to chase after a man too dumb
to know when he had heaven in his hands. Rhys was very
noble, even if he was a bit thickheaded at times. He was so
busy trying to do the right thing that he forgot to think
about what was right for him. All in all, this was a great

What's a Princess to do when the man Fate has chosen for her denies her?
As Princess of Fey, Neiva has led a privileged life. When she sees her mate in the Waters of Fate, she is shocked at who Fate has paired her with. When he refuses her again and again, her shock quickly turns to anger.
Rhys has been friends with the King of Fey for centuries. Surely Fate would not be so cruel as to mate him with his friend's daughter? Never mind that he hears the Song of Souls when she is near - she has mistaken the situation and he must let her down gently.
After yet another denial from Rhys, Neiva decides it's time to move on. She leaves the Fey Realm and goes to the human world - the world of her mother - determined to find some semblance of happiness. Rhys is given the duty of watching over her while she is there - a task that drives him mad with desire and frustration. But danger has followed Neiva there. Now she is not only in danger of losing her heart, but also her life.
