DESTINED FOR DOOM—OR DESIRE?
Growing up on the Isle of Moon, Brigitta knew that she was born with the magical powers of the Embraced—even if she did not know how to wield them. But she has finally learned the truth: Brigitta is the lost princess of the kingdom of Tourin. She was sent into hiding as an infant to escape the wrath of her half-brother, the king. And now he knows just where to find her. . .
Rupert is a notorious pirate and sorcerer who can harness the wind with his hands. He’s spent most of his life plotting revenge on the evil king—and Rupert believes that Brigitta could be the key to finally destroying his enemy. But what begins as a kidnapping of the innocent beauty escalates into something deeper, and more passionate, than either captor or captive could have imagined. Rupert soon vows to protect Brigitta against the king—but will they survive long enough to find their happily-ever-after. . .or does fate have something else in store?
This book was so fantastic! I enjoyed being in this world again, and with almost a completely new cast of characters. Sure, some of our favorites make appearances, but this place in a different country/kingdom, we mostly have new characters. Which is nice, because we already know the one group, and now we get to know another!
Brigitta can find secrets, and Rupert can control the wind. Of course, they both have secrets-Brigitta didn't know hers, that she was the daughter of a king, and well, Rupert's whole life has basically been a secret. Because their families are connected and not in a good way!
In this book, we were introduced to another country in this world. We also visited another one, which will be good, given that the dragons are part of the 3rd book! The way that her brother treated her was extremely frustrating, but Brigitta was smart and had amazing friends and a sizzling romance, and was able to hold her own!
That ending was such a roller coaster ride! Things were looking bad, then good, and back and forth, then it was all resolved! That dratted chameleon causes a lot of trouble again, and he almost gets away with it. Good guys are victorious, however, and there's a really touching moment! Loved it!
Another amazing book, and I can't wait for the 3rd book, this series is just amazing!
