Publisher's Summary

As a princess in the impoverished kingdom of Delantria, it’s Aldari’s job to look pretty, speak little, and marry a prince.

Studying mathematics and writing papers on economic theory in an effort to fix her people’s financial woes? Her father has forbidden it. With war on the horizon, they must focus on the immediate threat.

Reluctantly, Aldari agrees to marry a prince in a neighboring kingdom to secure an alliance her people desperately need. All is going to plan until the handsome elven mercenary captain hired to guard her marriage caravan turns into her kidnapper. His people are in trouble, and he believes she has the knowledge to help.

But with an invasion force approaching Delantria, Aldari’s own people need her. She must do everything in her power to escape the elves and make it to her wedding in time.

Never mind that her kidnapper is witty and clever and offers her a challenge that intrigues her mind even as his easy smile intrigues her heart….

Aldari can’t let herself develop feelings for him. To fall in love and walk away from her wedding would mean the end of her kingdom and everyone she cares about.

Creative-Action Packed-Romantic

I enjoyed this single book very much. The situations and hurdles throughout the book were unique and caught you in their imagination. I loved the Interplay of the two main characters and although, I wish the ending wasn’t quite so abrupt. I appreciate that Lindsay Buroker always wraps up her books well so there are no outstanding questions. As a reader I appreciate that in a writer. Great story; love the characters!

Hmmm.... Not for me

I don't know where Audible's algorithm went wrong suggesting this book to me. And why the few reviews are so high! If you enjoy Lindsay Buroker's writing I'm sure it will suit your tastes. But for me, I felt like I was reading a Wattpad story some 14 year old had written. It did at least have some decently cute/disneyish romance fluff. Bleh.

Stop being thirsty girl!!

I loved the story and the narrator of the tale read it wonderfully and had me on the edge of my seat while I worked on patient documents. my shift flew by to the point I was upset when my shift ended and I had to pause it till my next shift. I never skipped any part it is a definite must read and for once it was not filled with funking just a very thirsty elf and princess. 10/10

A great stand-alone story

Ms. Buroker delivers another wonderful story and Vivienne Leheny really brings the characters to life, giving each one their own distinctive “voice.” I enjoy reading Ms. Buroker’s series stories but it is nice to finish a tale in one book. You can’t go wrong reading any of her stories as she writes extremely entertaining adventure stories.

I enjoyed this journey story

I loved the characters and the descriptive passages. The Princess is relatable and easily liked, and a bad ass body guard funny.

Ok listen

This was an ok listen, but not half as enjoyable as this author’s Death Before Dragons series. It lacked the excitement and chemistry of that one. I’ll still get more in this series if they’re released, though.

High Romantic Fantasy with every element there

loved it. why because this story meant to be listened to. Narrators who draw out emotion, each pause and breath intake, as was done in this book is magic. True character development which can be tough to deliver in one book for Fantasy epic. but right I want more of these characters. Id love to see this story as a film. Action is paced, pensive and pulsing. The romance is developed and aligns to thinking and feeling as restrictions and cultural pressures of time their all the characters lives harshness of that life i.e ethics and treatings others as equals and with respect is still evolving. For me this narrator was so good easing me into the story and holding my interest. would relisten. Gosh I hope theres other Elf books coming. Why Elf have always been my no.1 Fav but theres not enough quality reads. My mind is still spinning could Aldari&Hawk have more enemies yet to face and what about Shydena,Prince Erathian,Theli,SetVic,
Hysithea,Prince Xerik... please add a book series.
