Description:

 Two nights after her eighteenth birthday, Lily is attacked while out jogging, but is saved by Tharin Lunar, a Sidhe prince. When she discovers that her attacker is her own brother, Lucas, who disappeared four years ago, Lily refuses to believe that her brother would truly hurt her and becomes determined to find Lucas and bring him home. Lily finds that Lucas’ disappearance is somehow tied to Tharin; so when he informs her that she is his betrothed and must return with him to Velesi, fulfill a treaty between their families and unite the two strongest clans through their marriage, Lily agrees. However, she’s not going to Velesi for a wedding, but to bring home her only family, Lucas.

On their journey to the borders of Velesi, the realm of the Thirteen Clans, they’re pursued by a Sidhe assassin group call the Ange, meet with an ogre crime lord that ends badly, deal with a sleazy troll motel manager, and when they discover that there’s a bounty on their heads, they must keep one step ahead of every assassin, bounty hunter and low-life criminal in Velesi.

Protecting Lily has become the biggest challenge of Tharin’s life. Lucky for him he has help in the form of his twin brother, Tolan, Lily’s best friend Julia and his three bodyguard cousins.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book it’s the first in a series about Lily Michaels whose a princess elf and doesn’t know it yet.  She was raised by her brother Lucas until he disappears on his 18th birthday.  When Lily turns 18 she spots her brother trying to kill her, along comes Tharin and Tolan and their friends and relatives to help rescue the princess.  They find themselves collecting Lily’s friend Julia whose been beaten by her family.  They also find evil elves and other beings trying to kill the Prince Tharin and Princess Lily.  They travel through California, Nevada into Canada and to Velesi to get the Princess Lily back to Velesi for a arranged wedding.  During all this a binding takes place binding Tharin to Lily.  Lily finds out Tharin has a girlfriend in Velesi and just wants to fulfill this marriage and find Lucas and go home.  What Lily doesn’t know is that Tharin is binded to Lily, his relationship with his girlfriend is over and he only loves Lily.  Upon entering Velesi someone kidnaps Lily and Julia, Tharin and Tolan are desperately trying to find her.  This book was great full of action, adventure, romance times two between Julia and Tolan and Lily and Tharin!
