Prince Gabriel of Rhyddon is the reluctant heir to the faerie kingdom of Eilithia. It’s said that there is nothing more beautiful than Eilithia and the Tylwyth Teg faeries that live there. Gabriel would disagree. Since being enchanted by the seductive temptress Aneira, a powerful witch who spoke his name four years ago, he has not seen the beauty in anything. Imprisoned by indifference and oblivious to any power but Aneira’s corrupting passion, Prince Gabriel’s mind may no longer be his own, but he will never give her his heart. That was taken from him long ago, and only glimmers of that joyous pledge keep him sane.

Somewhere across the earthly realm of Wales, Taryn of Hamilhawk dreams of a magical forest with music in its trees and a man who holds her heart in his hands. But she’s afraid of magic and, looking out her lonely tower window, prays each night to forget him. She has no idea that soon she will be his wife and that she will somehow save both him and herself from a force that threatens their future. She would never imagine that her path to passionate love will be filled with faeries, a talking tree, and a shape-changing king… and best it not be revealed until Taryn is free to bring her own magnificence and resilience to bear.

All she knows is that he calls out to her in her dreams. “Save me, Taryn.”

And her heart, no matter how she tries to deny it, must answer.

The Enchanted by Genevra Thorne was a fantastic read! Splendid! Taryn of Hamilhawk awoke from her dreams of a handsome man coming to her at night in a magical forest with beautiful music. Her stepfather decides to offer her hand in marriage to a man rumored to be the devil himself. After meeting the warrior, she discovers it’s the man from her dreams except…it’s not, he appears different-darker. She’s brought to his kingdom and encounters more magic than she knows what to do with.
Prince Gabriel of Rhyddon is the heir to the faerie kingdom of Eilithia. He remains cursed to the alluring powerful witch named Aneira. Wanting to fight her lullabies filled with promise of passionate love making, he begins to ground himself after meeting Taryn of Hamilhawk. There was something about her that reminded him of happiness, an emotion he used to experience when he was innocent and young. Is there hope for someone who feels as if his heart has left him so many years ago?
The Enchanted is book one in the series Faerie Tale, I feel like this could be a standalone book and doesn’t need to be read in order. I could not put this book down! I truly enjoyed every inch of this beautifully written masterpiece! I can’t wait to read the rest of her series for the story enchanted my very soul. Laughter, adventure, magic, and romance swirled into an amazing story with faerie creatures and lively characters. This book made me root for the good guys. This story made me want to read the next book. I highly recommend this story to any reader who’d like to be guaranteed a wonderful read for anytime of day.
