One touch, one spark, two lives forever changed.
Pine and Azure. The war between the two kingdoms lasted far too long. Peace was finally established, but the survivors would never forget who fought on the front lines. Oliver Sage had a reputation for being a ruthless knight. He’d seen enough death to last a lifetime and worked on putting the past behind him, although not all would let him forget.
Addison was the only daughter of King and Queen Azure. With three brothers, she knew she’d always be protected, but she also wanted to learn how to take care of herself. She was strong, had a good heart, and wanted to be treated as an equal. Magical abilities ran in her family, and she had one no one knew of.
Oliver had given his heart to one princess, until the night he dreamed of another. Addison was the last woman he should desire, especially given who she was. However, what if she wanted him as well? They’d hated each other their entire lives, but suddenly couldn’t resist the desire which built between them. There were also those who didn’t think they should be together. Forbidden romance could only stay hidden for so long in the dark depths of the Pine Forest.
This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order. This book picks up at Lukas and Alison’s wedding. Oliver is still in love with Alison and hurts him terribly that she is marring someone other than him. He needs to find a way to move on and let her go. It may be easier than he first thought. While at the reception he catches Princess Addison when she trips. The moment their skin touches he feels a current run through him. Then later that night she appears in his dream and it’s a very real dream. Addison has the same dream however she is unsure if it just a regular dream or if it’s something more. Their kingdoms are no longer at war and have a treaty in place. That doesn’t mean everyone is happy about it or trusting of the Pine kingdom. Could Addi and Oliver have a future together or will the pasts between their kingdoms keep them apart? Could Addi feel something for Oliver as well? I love this series and can’t wait for more. The characters are so real. I was sucked into the book right away and read it all in one sitting. Michelle is a fantastic author and I always look forward to her books. This book has romance, danger, dragons, and so much more. Who doesn’t love dragons?? If Addi and Oliver want to have anything serious they are going to have to overcome a lot to get it. I can’t say enough about this book/series and Michelle. Fantastic job Michelle.
