"Love is destined to find her..."
Dainy doesn't know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward! Though at odds, three clashing rivals - including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake - voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart. Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
An absolutely epic adventure! I was completely enraptured from the very beginning and found it nearly impossible to put this boo down. Packed full of adventure with tons of surprises, there was never a dull moment and I enjoyed every minute of it. The characters were very complex and likable with their own unique personalities that made me fall in love with all of them. The writing was snappy and fresh and I just loved the author's style. There were moments where I had to laugh, bite my nails, feel like slapping something and then sigh in pleasure at sweet romance finally. It was a beautifully written story that completely captured my heart and imagination! The ending wasn't quite a cliffhanger, but definitely introduces a sequel coming. I can't wait to see what adventures the characters get into in the next book! I absolutely loved this book and recommend it to anybody and everybody!
