 Synopsis: 

 Off-limits has never been so irresistible…

Lady Katherine Durant has perfected the art of hiding her Gifts—a valuable skill in a land where any hint of sorcery could lead to the burning stake. But, hiding her Gifts isn’t the same as not using them, and that troublesome difference has led to capture each time she’s run from her uncle.

Now, using a newly-discovered spell, she binds her powers and flees again—this time for her life. Unfortunately, her plan to hide as a maid in a distant kingdom goes awry when she unwittingly gets entered into a festival competition for the hand of a prince—a man with a wicked kiss and a sense of adventure that rivals her own.

All she’s ever hoped for is a quiet existence as a servant, never imagining she could find laughter and belonging and love. And now the mischievous prince has her dreaming of all those things.

 With a bounty on her head, sorcerers closing in, and a prince threatening to steal her heart, could it finally be time to stop running? Time to trust? Time to love?

My Thoughts

I would like to thank KL Anderson and NetGalley for the chance and approval to read and review this book.

This book was once again different to what I’ve read for a while. This book has romance, fantasy and in a couple of places it can get steamy. I felt sorry for Kate in the beginning as she didn’t know what she was actually capable of. When she ran away I might of had a slight fist pump moment and I thought “Go Girl!”.

She quickly meets Prince Edmund (disguised as a bandit) and they are all en route to his fathers castle for 2 wedding festivals. A series of tasks and competitions to find a bride for Prince Edmund and a groom for his sister Princess Rachel.

 As you can imagine the story line after this becomes quite predictable. Kate falls in love with the Prince, even though she knows she can’t have the Prince. The Prince falls in love with Kate, even though he knows he can’t marry her.

The middle of the story was slightly dragged out and then it was over all too quick. It was a quick and enjoyable, although a predictable read. You can’t help but route for Kate and hope she does get the Prince.

 I’ll give this book a rating of 3/5, it was enjoyable, but predictable and dragged out and was over all too quick.
