Publisher's Summary

In a land where humans and elves find it difficult to communicate, Tari - an elf - is bound to Captain Arion - a human military officer - in a ceremony designed to promote friendship between the two races. When the ceremony is over, the pair discover that the impossible has happened: They can understand each other in spite of the language barrier.

Thrown into a storm of politics, Tari and Arion are put in danger by those who want humans and elves to remain separate.

To make matters worse, Tari realizes that she has fallen in love with Arion, who has the emotional capabilities of a rock. As both societies dictate that an elf and a human can never be together, Tari must conceal her feelings. Unfortunately, the taciturn Arion is watchful and attentive to Tari's well-being, constantly pushing her to her limits with his loyalty, friendship, and dreadfully informal habit of touching her.

If Tari and Arion survive, their tumultuous relationship will either strengthen their countries' alliance or cripple the human courts of nobility. The deciding factor will be Arion and his indecipherable feelings for Tari.

Interesting, sweet fantasy romance

I love this author! I especially like how the author balances interesting, independent heroines with equally interesting heros! It is such a relief to find great books that I enjoy, that I wouldn't be embarrassed for my daughter to read as well. I am so excited to see her books finally coming in audio format. This is an excellent introduction to K M Shea's work.

Narration enhances story

A good story with the addition of an interesting narrator, it kept the flow of the story moving. Really wished the author would have more Lessa stories to tell involving the characters of this one

good story

I really enjoy all of this author's books. I've been looking for books that didn't have all the x-rated love scenes in them, I found them with K.M.Shea's books. I've really enjoyed all of her books. You must read all of her books.

loved it

loved this author and was read well. the reader made the voices clearly diffrent and the author created a whole new world where we had not just pretty elves and strong men but cultural diffrence, emotional strength/control, family troubles and controversy. but most of all misunderstandings about love. it took a fantasy world and made it almost real.
