She knew her hand in marriage would be sold. She had no idea a fae prince was the buyer.
Katria swore she'd never fall in love. She's seen what "love" means through the cruelty of her family. So when she's married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she's leaving. Feelings are off the table.
But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.
As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.
Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidently pilfered the magic of ancient kings - magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne - and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.
The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel?
A Dance with the Fae Prince is a complete, stand-alone novel, inspired by the tales of Psyche and Eros, as well as Cinderella, with a "happily ever after" ending. It's perfect for fantasy romance fans looking for just the right amount of steam and their next slow-burn and swoon-worthy couple.
“A dance with the fae prince” by Elise Kova is the second standalone in the Married to Magic series. And I am telling you right now, this series only gets better with each book.
In this story we get to meet Katria and Davien, a couple that I ADORED so much.
He buys her hand in marriage, rescuing her from a very abusive family situation… we do have a bit of a Cinderella retelling with this novel.
Katria and Davien start to get close as husband and wife, but he does not allow her to look at him, she wears a blindfold for every one of their conversations and moments together. Along with that, she starts noticing more things that don’t seem quite right about him.
While predictable, this beginning for them was a very enjoyable angsty twist.
There is also the fact that Katria swore to herself to never fall in love, and Davien keeps futilely trying to take their relationship to an emotional level. This gives us TONS of angst which, if anyone knows me, they know what a weakness that is for me.
In “A dance with the fae prince” we get to delve deeper into this world and, I can assure you, it’s one of the best built and most originals I’ve read. As we read more, we get more pieces to explore in it, and it seems like a completely different place from one book to the other, but somehow it still feels part of the same universe, which in my opinion makes everything incredibly realistic. Because that’s the real world. It changes so much and yet it has some familiarity to it.
This story gives us a kingdom’s revolution, secret royalty and a love story with a slice of many different tropes.
My only complaint is that I wanted so badly a better EPILOGUE, actually focused on the main couple and, as weird as that may sound, to have more angst with them about Davien’s royal duties and his marriage… and we didn’t get that. But I obviously still recommend this story to everyone.
Asis is a Mexican girl whose life changed at the age of six when her father read the first chapter of Harry Potter to her. Ever since that night, the book world sucked her in and she’s never been seen amongst mortals again.
