"Guaranteed to heat you up!"

Emilia ra Elawyn, Princess of the Silverhaven Bright Elves, has been trying for years without success to awaken the magical stone on her forehead, the stone that is the source of power that would enable her to claim the throne after her father's death. During the celebration of her birthmoon, she overheard her stepmother plotting to match her to one of the rough clan lords to the deserts of the south. Distraught, she fled to hide and lick her wounds, and came upon the Shadow Elf's ambassador, Rorek Northmark, and his lover and bodyguard, Jo'el, making love in their rooms. As desire coursed through her, Emilia had a sudden thought that would enable her to stay at home: If she were ruined, even the clan lords to the south wouldn't want her...

Ember Case delivers a fun, sexy read that I finished in one sitting, due to the gripping storyline and interesting characters. Mysteries and betrayals ran rampant in the palace, along with a blistering passion that burned the pages.

I enjoyed Emilia's transformation into a confident woman brimming with her magic and sexuality, a woman who is willing to fight for the one man who has literally saved her. Rorek is the perfect foil for her, his experience to her innocence, yet, she is more than a match for him in all ways. Jo'el's addition lights up the attraction sizzling between them considerably and makes for scorching, irresistible love scenes.

This is a well-written story guaranteed to heat you up during the cold nights.

Their passion is perfection...but treachery lurks in the shadows.

Emilia ra Elawyn, Princess of the Silverhaven Bright Elves, is shocked when she overhears her stepmother's plans to banish her from court to the dry deserts of the barbarian horde. Emilia's sin? Her magical stone, the source of the power to rule over her people, has not awakened. Without it she can never claim the throne.

Desperate to escape her fate, she offers herself to a visiting Shadow Elf ambassador--and his guard. Once compromised, she's certain the barbarians will refuse her.

Rorek Northmark can't deny the princess tempts him to distraction. It isn't as simple as allowing himself--and his guard, Jo'el--to indulge in her luscious body. Touching her means getting tangled up in court politics, the one thing he wants to avoid. Still, her plea touches the only soft spot in his hardened heart, and he can't bring himself to push her away.

Yet nothing is as it seems in the Bright Court, and their one night of exquisite pleasure could trap them all in a web of mortal danger...
