When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales. Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park, left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair. Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.
My Review: So I get a request to read this book and I was excited. I kept seeing this on goodreads, and wanted to read it. It has what I like mixed with a new story line. I like having a new story line thrown into my favorite genres.
Any who, you have Tristan who is a young lord that spends his life in a wheelchair. Because he is in a wheelchair, he becomes unhappy and very grumpy. Being that way, makes it hard to approach people. There is this one person who can bring out the best in him. That's his aunt Tabitha. Once these two have gorwn, you are getting pretty far into the story. Up to this point, there should be no reason that you won't like this book. Even if you hate fantasy, you'll find some way to like this book.
So Tristan is not set very well, his financial situation is not the best. However this american man and his daughter come by. He makes a deal with Tristan. If he marry's his daughter, then he will help him financially. What to do? He doesn't want to marry her, but what can you do if you need to survive? So he settles on the fact that he will soon be married and thats it.
Now for my favorite part, and this is where the book picks up really fast. So it's a day before the wedding, and Tabitha is kidnapped. Tristan wants to save her, so he goes to get her. He must know that in any book, the world of FAE are not to be messed with. Even the nicest Fae have some kind of agenda. In this book he will have both good and evil Fae after him. What shal he do? Can he get her back? Will he learn some hidden truths?
Ughhh I want to say more...how do I say more without giving it all away? It's hard not to say every detail.
