Emrys has been assigned to guard Prince Richard. The city makes her sick but the younger Fae can handle it over the older ones. Richard likes to go out to bars and clubs where soul feeders hunt. A treaty was made a long time ago where the Fae agreed to protect the royal blood which still has magic. An old one is after the royals. Someone wants to kill the line and get rid of mortals and technology. Emrys must protect Richard and his family and figure out who is after them.
When Emrys begins guarding Richard she notices a connection between them. She has a difficult time keeping her invisibility veil up around him so she decides to take a chance and let him see her. Richard accepts the Fae world pretty well and is happy to see he has such a gorgeous faery godmother looking out for him. As they spend more time together Emrys realizes she cares for him but she can't be with him. To be with a mortal means she would have to give up her magic and immortality to become a mortal herself. That is a huge sacrifice.
Richard was a bit of a party boy but matures a lot throughout the story and really starts to accept responsibility. I just love a prince. :-D The story does get really romance heavy but that was fine with me because I love a good romance. Richard and Emrys together had me swooning. There is still a lot of action and the ending totally surprised me! I kept wondering who was after Richard and I admit I was no where near close to guessing. It was a fun story that kept me turning the pages. I really enjoyed it.
"You'd be dashing no matter what you wore."
"You think so?"
"Stop fishing for compliments. You know you're sickeningly handsome." I mean for these words to be teasing, but they betray me. Come out earnest.
"So you're saying I make you sick?"
"You've got to stop looking at me," I hiss as Richard's uncle, the prince regent, walks away. "People are starting to notice."
"Well, it's a bit hard when you're right here and looking so blooming perfect," he mumbles between clenched teeth.
"I love Richard even more than I fear death. More than I fear losing my magic, my self. Because my magic isn't my self anymore."
