Kenric of Blackstone is tormented. Not entirely human, he cannot live with his past or with that he truly is. When he is needed to help in a battle that could destroy the Earth, it is Megan who gives him strength, Megan whose kisses heal him....
In a strange land and time, it became clear to Megan Potter why she'd been summoned. This wasn't about Faerie prophecies or wizardry, or even a desperate struggle to find her way home. This was a quest to save a man's heart. And for the first time ever, she felt destined to prevail, because with her help she knew this handsome prince could discover the most powerful magic of all - love.

This was a very nice easy paranormal romance listen. There's time travel, a handsome hunky warrior, a damsel in distress, a fairy queen, a fairy kingdom, magic and an evil mage. It had all the elements of a classic fairy tale, and I must admit, it some respects it almost "read" like one. Not that that's a bad thing, but it's not the sort of paranormal romance to get your heart pumping. It's more a easy listening, feel good piece. Not that there wasn't action and adventure, just that you were never in much doubt of how things were going to turn out.
Megan, a modern day socialite and heiress, is engaged to the abusive and greedy Roger. She decided to break off the engagement. When she goes to their meeting place, she is hit by lightening and sent back in time to the dark ages before she has a chance to break the engagement. Here, magic is real and fairies exist. She finds a cave to hide in, but the cave is also the home of a hunky half-fae warrior known as Kenric of Blackstone. It's their destiny to join in a final battle with an evil mage who wants to rule the land of fairy and the land of man. The question is, will they win the battle, and will Megan find a way back to her own time? If she does, will she want to leave Kenric behind?
I quite enjoyed this book. There is sexual scenes, but they are brief and more to the point than some of the steamier books out there. While I don't mind, and even sometimes enjoy, explicit scenes in my romances, there's been this trend lately towards erotica in the romance genre, to the point that I'm fast forwarding through sex scenes because frankly, after a while, it all becomes a bit redundant. Not so with this book. It was rather crisp and to the point where sex was concerned, without many "blush-worthy" details. It made for a welcome change.
The narrator did a really great job, but she did mispronounce several words. It wasn't too off putting, but it kept her from rating 5 stars in my opinion. Still, her voice was pleasant, her pacing was excellent and overall it was very professionally done.
